‘Tis the season! As Christmas approaches, the streets of London are starting to feel more festive by the day. One of our favorite things about this time of year is admiring all of the brilliant store window displays that pop up around the city. If you’re on the hunt for some festive inspiration, be sure to check out these four fantastic toy shop window displays!
Hamleys on Regent Street
December is a magical time in London. The city is adorned with twinkling lights, festive decorations, and jolly holiday shoppers. And at the center of it all is Hamleys, the world-famous toy store on Regent Street. This time of year, Hamleys transforms into a winter wonderland, complete with a stunning Christmas window display. The retail store design features life-size toys that come to life and dance around, much to the delight of children (and adults) who watch from the street. It’s a true spectacle that’s not to be missed. If you find yourself in London during December, make sure to swing by Hamleys and take in the Christmas cheer.
Selfridges on Oxford Street
Christmas is a time for family, friends, and, of course, presents! Selfridges’ Christmas window display is a great way to get into the holiday spirit. The store’s Oxford Street location in London is decked out with dozens of brightly-lit Christmas trees, and the windows are filled with toys. It’s a perfect place to take the kids to see Santa Clause, or to do some Christmas shopping. The Christmas window display at Selfridges is sure to get you in the festive mood!
Harrods on Brompton Road
The highly anticipated Harrods Christmas window display is coming to London in 2022! This festive event is great for children of all ages and is a must-see during the holiday season. Themed around the classic Alice in Wonderland story, the display features life-size toys and characters that come to life. Kids will love seeing their favorite toys come to life and getting a glimpse into the magical world of Wonderland. In addition to the window display, there will also be a Toy Town pop-up shop where kids can purchase their own Alice in Wonderland themed toys. This is sure to be a memorable experience for everyone involved and is a great way to get into the holiday spirit.
The Disney Store on Leicester Square
The Christmas window display at the Disney Store in Leicester Square is a must-have for any child’s visits to London. The whole store is given over to an incredible display featuring all the favourite Disney characters in festive scenes. Kids will love to see Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy and Pluto all getting ready for Christmas. As well as being great fun, the window display is also very educational. Kids can learn about the importance of giving and sharing at Christmas time, and they can also find out about some of the must-have gifts for this year. The window display is open from early November until Christmas Eve, so there’s plenty of time to visit. And it’s not just kids who will enjoy it – adults will love it too!
