Hamleys, the finest toy shop in the world, is bringing the magic of Christmas to London’s Regent Street with its annual Toy Parade on Sunday 20th November 2016 in an all-day extravaganza.
In a show stopping return, this magical experience will give families a chance to see their favourite toy characters in the world’s largest Toy Parade. With Basil Brush taking the stage as special guest host and an iconic giant Marshmallow Man set to steal the show, a cast of hundreds are set to parade along Regent Street, including marching bands, dancers and toy vehicles.
New faces to this years’ line up include Lego Ninjago’s very own Kai and a host of exciting additions from CBeebies, including Hey Duggee, The Teletubbies, Go Jetters, Q Pootle 5, Something Special and Twirlywoos. Much loved stars from last year include Barbie, Bing and Flop, Fireman Sam, The Gruffalo, Peppa Pig, Sonic, Power Rangers and The Transformers.
Grant Yuill, Senior Marketing Manager Hamleys said: “We are back bigger and better in 2016, with even more well-loved characters, performers and activities for the family in the parade and on the street. There is so much for all the family to see on the day, this is set to be the most magical family day out yet.”
Key sponsors for 2016 include Sky Cinema and Magic FM. The Hamleys Toy Parade will be followed by an action packed afternoon allowing families to see some their favourite characters.
