Pennywise (IT) merchandise is totally inappropriate in a children’s toy shop. Overpriced and tired. I used to love this place as a kid highly disappointing. more »
Toys selection is probably the best I've ever seen. However I gave this one star less than 5 because its always packed, full of people due to its popularity. No matter what time you go. I'd suggest expanding the store, that's the only problem I found and possibly have more lifts. It's difficult to get in the lift sometimes because at every minute there's approx 10 people waiting on each floor and there's only 2 lifts. It's a must visit place in London, so having a better store would make sense.
Amazing store. You just can't get out without buying something. Great collection. Coolest part is the staff that demonstrate some really impressive stuff such as quick painting, magic etc. Great location. Go with your wallet full :)
