Toy Hub prepared for Andy Murray and Kim Sears’ wedding at Dunblane Cathedral on Saturday 11th April with a wedding themed window display.Toy-Hub-wordpress

The Dunblane-based store, renowned for supporting its local tennis star every year during Wimbledon with window displays, used stock from Melissa & Doug, Top Model and TY Beanies to mark the occasion.

Helen Gourley, owner, Toy Hub, said: “Our window dresser loved the plush version of Andy and Kim so much she couldn’t bear to part with them and has purchased them from us. There was certainly an increase of footfall in the run-up to the wedding and on the day itself. Toy Hub provided a welcome stop for many families.

“We had to stay open later than normal to accommodate people as they wandered back to the train station after seeing the happy couple arrive for the wedding. There was a surge in sales, primarily as children were rewarded for their good behaviour. The items that sold well were of course the cuddly toys displayed in the window, but also lots of arts and crafts and games were popular, as people travelled from far and wide and wanted the children to be entertained on the return journey. The new Top Model water bottles were great for people to decant their drinks into as well.”
