Shop Hamleys, The Finest Toy Shop in the World, on eBay

No primary category set

Hamleys, The Finest Toy Shop in the World, is today announcing the launch of its first eBay shop, as part of the company’s plans to expand their online presence. If you’re still looking for some final Christmas presents you can shop Hamleys on eBay right now.

With London now in Tier 3, many Londoners might think twice about going shopping and if you were planning a trip to London to visit Hamleys you too can shelve your plans – simply head over to eBay!

Founded in 1760, Hamleys has become famous worldwide for its physical stores, captivating experiences and eye-catching shop windows, in particular its iconic Regent Street shop which has been a huge draw for locals and international tourists alike.

Up to 40% off when you shop Hamleys on eBay

From today, eBay’s 28 million UK customers will be able to shop the full range of Hamleys’ toys and games. Over 1,600 product lines will feature on eBay, including its top 10 toys for Christmas 2020 and its Hamleys own-label range of toys, and the shop has an offer of up to 40% off until the 22nd of December.

The overall toys category on eBay has seen sales grow dramatically in the past year, with both new and retro toys proving popular. During Black Friday, sales for toys were up 58% compared to the previous year. Superheroes and Star Wars dominated the most popular purchases, with Star Wars and Marvel Avengers Lego sets among the most popular – 16 superhero themed items were bought every hour over the Black Friday period on eBay UK.

The addition of Hamleys will give a further boost to eBay’s growing toys offering, with The Entertainer and Early Learning Centre also recently joining eBay.

“So many of us will have a special memory about Hamleys – as a child and spending an afternoon of play in one of their stores, or as a family visiting its famous Christmas grotto. As the pandemic continues to disrupt the high street, we’re pleased that we can give iconic brands like Hamleys another online shop window, bringing the magic of their experience in-store to reach the millions of customers we have in the UK and worldwide.”
– Murray Lambell, UK General Manager, eBay

  1. I clicked on “Terry Triceratops” listing and the description tells a story about a panda sitting on a bamboo stick (I kid you not). Wrong toy, wrong description.

    But more interesting is their feedback from buyers. It’s an example of how not to operate a business.

  2. Shocking feedback, I’m surprised their account hasn’t been sanctioned. And with a personal ringing endorsement from Murray Lambell too….,,, It could only happen on eBay I suppose

  3. With near 100% of their stock made in the far east and china they are going to have fun with their suppliers undercutting them

  4. they will have been encouraged
    with reduced rates and special treatment ,
    not the best way of making ebays brand known for reliability and service

  5. guys lets be positive.. Things are hard for lots of retailers and this is good move for Hamleys because I bet u corona has ruined them. Love to ebay since I keep finding more and more official stores to shop from!!
