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.

About Hamleys

Miniature trains career under escalators, model planes circle above your head and mountains of soft toys spill across the floor. Famed as the one of the largest of its kind across Europe, Hamleys has been the leading toy shop for over 250 years. More about Hamleys
