Postcards from England: Christmas 2016 – Hamleys Toy Store

Dear Readers,

It’s Saturday, and Hamleys in London is bustling with shoppers.  And to add to the excitement — demos and wowsers of all kinds.  From magic erasable boards to flying airplanes, boomerangs, and bubbles. When it all came down to The Purchase, though, we brought home an old fave — Paddington Bear!

Ah, shopping in London,

–Rusha and Bert
