The origins of Hamleys
Hamleys was founded in 1760 with the first store called "Noah's Ark" and it was located in London, England. The initial store was later moved to a different location in 1881, and today is 7 stories tall with over 50,000 different toys, it is also the company's flagship store. The company was established by William Hamley who wanted to establish the best toy shop in the world. The shop quickly became popular amongst many parents and their children but during the 1920's times grew tough during the depression and the store was forced to close. However, in the late 1930's Tri-Ang acquired Hamleys and worked hard to restoring it to its former glory. William's legacy along with the vision of the new owners continues to this very day with an estimate amount of Hamleys stores consisting of more than 60 franchise branches across the world and 10 in the UK.
