Hamleys Toy ParadeBack for a third year, Hamleys Toy Parade is the largest parade of toy characters in the world and sees Regent Street transformed into a traffic-free, all-day extravaganza attended by close to a million children and families last year. A cast of hundreds, including marching bands, dancers and toy cars, parade along Regent Street, finishing at Great Marlborough Street in the free event. Much loved characters include CBeebies favourites, Lego characters, Barbie, Fireman Sam and The Transformers plus there's street theatre, dancers and music from Magic FM. It's Hamleys brought to life.
