Hamleys Easter Egg Hunt


We were invited to a very special early morning experience at Hamleys Toy Shop in London the other day to try out their Easter Egg Hunt!  We were very lucky to have this behind the scenes look at an empty Hamleys store, but the great news is that the Easter Egg Hunt is open to all over the Easter Break and there is still time to visit and have a go (until Monday 22nd April)!

We arrived bright and early and set off on our Easter Egg Hunt around the shop, we were given a sheet to fill in and wandered around all 7 floors of Hamleys looking for big colourful eggs with letters on them to fill in our sheets.

Once you find all of the clues you can take a picture of your finished sheet and post on Instagram using #Hamleys for a chance to win a birthday party at Hamleys!

There are so many other activities going on at Hamleys as well, after our early egg hunt we popped back outside for the grand opening of the shop.  It's fantastic!  Clearly we are not usually early birds and had no idea that this sort of thing went on, but there's a whole big count down and one child is chosen to ring the bell to open the shop each day!

There are also puppet shows several times a day (we watched one and the kids absolutely loved it, they were laughing hysterically the whole time!) There is a schedule by the escalators each day with a list of events, I had no idea there was so much to do at Hamleys, so definitely take a look!

And over Easter there are even more things going on than usual (check out the whats on section of their website), there is a Lego make and take of an Easter basket, available on certain days,  which we also got to try out and the kids really enjoyed being able to make their own little baskets to bring home.  There are also meet and greets with special characters on some days, so do check the schedule).

And if you're short on Easter treats, then you can even pop over to the Scrumpalicious sweet shop to choose some sweets to take home too!

There truly is so much to do at Hamleys over Easter, we highly recommend that you pay them a visit!
