Schleich unveils waterfall installation at Hamleys

Published on: 20th November 2018

Schleich UK continues to make its mark on the retail landscape with its latest statement fixture.

Shoppers taking a trip to Hamleys in London this Christmas will feel like they have entered a jungle rather than a traditional winter wonderland when they encounter the impressive Schleich display on the 3rd floor of the store. Customers will come face-to-face with a life-size model of a rare white tiger standing on top of a real working waterfall.

The impressive point of sale feature is already creating quite a noise in the store, and is just one part of Schleich’s programme to create a huge presence in toy stores across the UK & Ireland.

Paul Dearlove, trade marketing manager, Schleich UK, commented: “The new Hamleys display has been months in the planning, but now it’s in place I can truly say the efforts have been fully worthwhile. It’s the first thing you see as you enter the space, and with a working waterfall it’s a feast for all the senses. Most importantly it shows the beauty of the Schleich figurines and is already having a really positive impact on sales. It is perfect for brand awareness, and a perfect example of what we are trying to achieve across the retail space. Schleich has a wide variety of different retail display options for our partners and we can work with all types of spaces.”

Wendy Platt, senior visual merchandising & display manager at Hamleys, added: “We are delighted to introduce our first ever water feature into our flagship store on Regent Street with our friends from Schleich UK. It’s such an exciting addition to our overall customer experience. At Hamleys we work hard to provide our customers with unique experiences and bring toys to life. We are sure families visiting us from all over the world during the festive season will love this new feature.”
