Hamleys Glasgow launches toy shop visit competition

Hamleys is giving children from across Glasgow the chance to win an exclusive visit to the iconic toy shop.

The toy retailer has joined forces with children’s hospices based in Scotland, to invite kids to the store to meet Hamleys Bear and to enjoy a disco, glitter tattoos and toy demos.

Seven-year-old Amie Scott won a Facebook competition to attend the event and opened it by cutting a ribbon outside of the store, reports the Evening Times.

Plus, every child got to take home a free Hamleys teddy bear.
