  • Happiest Place on Earth. With my age, I am still amazed with all the toys on display and all the toys demo by staff in the store. I had to exercise self-control to not buy anything here cos it will probably be chuck aside at home. For those who are bringing kids to this place, do have a "contract" with your kid first, i.e. amount to spend / number of toys to buy. Else, you will definitely have a hard time coming out of this store!
  • The biggest toy store you'll find in the UK, an iconic attraction because of its 7 floors full of an assortment of toys. Definitely somewhere to bring your kids (although not sure whether your wallet will be happy). Best to visit weekdays as it can get very busy and hectic with children running around. My favourite are the hello kitty toys, hope they expand the range.
  • One of the best seen toy stores! Don't come with children - either you will leave with tears or empty pockets! :)
  • One word: amazing! I bought a Peppa Pig jigsaw for my little sister here and the staff were brilliant. 5 floors of fun!
  • Wow, what a toy store. Great displays, staff demoing (with skill) the products and so many levels! Definitely worth checking out.
