Hamleys Toy Store In Singapore (Plaza Singapura)



































All heed to the royal arrival of Hamleys in Singapore! Won't want to mix Hamleys up with Harrods as Hamleys Toy store was founded by 'William Hamley' and had been well established in London since 1970. Pardoned me as I just did my research after knowing about its arrival here through word of mouth. So I just pop-in Hamley's flagship store at 'Plaza Singapura' which occupied two storeys and an area of 12,000 square feet. I guess many would compare Hamleys with Toys"R"Us but I'm not here to judge, only to comment that I grew up with Toys"R"Us so my impression of Toys"R"Us rooted deep. The interior of Hamleys emitted an overwhelming English atmosphere with dash of red with some white, with old London telephone booth and Buckingham Palace guard. Plenty of toys that related to its country of origin for example the London cab, London bus, teddy bears and of course the British Bulldog. My focus of this post would centered on toy that's in-house brand and fun item such as the "Flying Pig"... Holy Cow ^_^

Indeed, the store manager to show its accent with some unique toys of their own. During my second visit, their trademark teddy bear already sold out. The store set to go for premium quality toys.
