. . . Hamleys
Just in time for the happiest season of the year, retail company Stores Specialist Inc. brings
the iconic toy brand, Hamleys, to the country. Located at the Central Square, Bonifacio High Street, Hamleys’ first stores opens today at exactly 12 p.m.
Growing up in Cornwall, England, William Hamley might have become a tin miner or a fisherman. But he dreamed of opening the best toyshop in the world and in 1760, he did. By the time Queen Victoria came to the throne in 1837, Hamleys was already a London landmark. So successful was the shop that in 1881, a new branch opened in Regent Street.
Today, the Hamleys at Regent Street still serves as the threshold of joy and wonder with squeaking, bleeping, whizzing and chiming of toys.
With over 250 years of experience in bringing smiles and laughter to children, Hamleys Central Square will be witness to familiar smiles and laughter that Hamleys is known and trusted for all over the world.
