centre:mk has announced that world-renowned British toy emporium, Hamleys, has selected centre:mk for its latest pop-up retail concept, bringing its unique brand to the region for the first time post lockdown.

Located at 148 Midsummer Arcade for four months, the 2,767 sq ft unit is home to Hamleys’ immersive toy wonderland, housing a selection of games, puzzles, arts and crafts from brands such as Lego, Barbie and Playmobil – including the iconic Hamleys Teddy Bears.  The store also stocks Hamley’s own exclusive toy collections.  With something for all ages, Hamleys at centre:mk features expert toy demonstrators and exciting in-store appearances from much-loved characters to create an immersive experience for customers.
