750,000 people are expected to flock to London’s Regent Street to see toy characters take part in the world’s largest Toy Parade.

“We were overwhelmed by the fantastic response to last year’s event and it’s proved to be a great day out for families of all ages," said Max Mayer, UK marketing manager, Hamley.

"With content sign up closing mid April, the event is already looking to be double the size of 2015. We very much look forward to welcoming many new household names amongst our pre-existing line up.”
