24 Jul Schools Out! Entertain the kids for FREE this summer
Schools are finally breaking up for the long-anticipated summer holidays at the end of this month. If you are looking to entertain the kids for free, London’s finest toy shop, Hamleys has launched a series of activities to keep your kids away from screen time this Summer and they won’t cost a penny!
Kicking off the summer bonanza is Hamleys’ very own Summer funfair! Every single day of the summer holidays, Hamleys will have a lucky dip for kids to have the chance to win some amazing prizes! For the more daring, there will be a bean-boozled spinning wheel – will you get a nasty or nice bean? – Head to the 5th floor to find out!
In-store fun also includes the classic Hamleys puppet shows that run throughout the day on the ground floor, as well as story time on the first floor. The famous Hamleys parade will also be taking place daily throughout the rest of July and August. Kids can join Hamley Bear and other beloved characters as the parade weaves through the store, floor by floor, to finish with a spectacular finale on the 4th floor.
Summer Streets is back once again on the 18th August and 15th September. Summer Streets is a summer street party that will see Regent Street pedestrianised and a wonderful fun-filled street party taking place throughout the summer! In celebration, Hamleys are hosting some unmissable meet and greets throughout the summer with PJ Masks and Pikachu on the 18th August.
The Playmobil Roadshow is back once again and will be taking place 27th – 28th July this year. Kids are invited to get hands on and play with the new range of toys, take part in competitions and meet the beloved character Princess.
