LEGO at Hamleys – Celebrating the 60th anniversary of the iconic LEGO brick

March 16, 2018

As part of a school project this year on inventions, Tigger was tasked with researching an invention and producing a poster, booklet or video. Whilst many of his classmates researched electricity, the telephone etc. Not Tigger. He opted for an invention close to his heart – LEGO! After researching the history of the famous LEGO brick, who invented it, how it is made, and just how popular it is. he made a video for his classmates which landed him a certificate for his hard work.

Celebrating the 60th anniversary of the iconic LEGO brick, Hamleys and LEGO have built a brand new interactive and engaging area for families to enjoy on the 5th floor of their Regent Street store. The fun starts as soon as you pass through the gates protected by the LEGO Royal Guards.

LEGO at Hamleys // Grand Opening

Attending the opening of the LEGO at Hamleys new area this morning. The look on Tigger’s face as we began to see the area come into sight was priceless. We were treated to a look around the new area before the official opening took place and the public received their first glimpse at the area too. With a range of activities and interactive features to make the shopping experience fun for all ages.

Walking through the gates to find an impressive LEGO Duplo building tree area. Surround be large minifigure characters which Piglet loved walking around to give hugs to. The building area is perfect for keeping little builders occupied and of course, introducing them to the wonderful world of LEGO.

For the official opening LEGO Ninjago Kai and the Hamleys Bear made a visit. With some assistance needed for cutting the ribbon, Tigger stepped up and opened the new area. To say that all his Christmases had come at once would be somewhat of an understatement. I don’t think he has stopped smiling since.

    I’m a bit sad that my boy has outgrown LEGO now, it was the one thing I loved making with him, we could be there for hours together. Mich x

    I miss the days of my two being Lego mad, for one thing it made knowing what to buy them as presents so easy! I love that he chose Lego for the project 🙂
