The roadshow event travels the length and breadth of the country visiting six of our flagship stores in major cities in the UK and Ireland. Our aim is to bring the Playmobil brand to life, providing children and families who visit us with a fun-filled day out during the school holidays.”

Shoppers will also be able to purchase their favourite Playmobil toys in store, and for the events Hamleys will be offering 20% off all Playmobil toys.
