Characters ready for Hamleys Christmas Toy Parade

Host of licensed names set to take part in retailer’s parade on Sunday November 19.

A host of licensed characters are gearing up for this year’s popular Hamleys Christmas Toy Parade.

Taking place on Sunday November 19, the all day extravaganza will once again take over London’s Regent Street, starring a raft of film and TV characters, marching bands, festive floating blimps, street theatre, dancers and toy vehicles, accompanied with music from Magic Radio.

Last year’s hit CBeebies village will return, with characters including Mr Tumble, Go Jetters, Hey Duggee, Bing and Flop, Postman Pat, Tree Fu Tom and Captain Barnicles.

In addition, other familiar faces in the parade will include Fireman Sam, Peppa Pig, Sonic the Hedgehog, Paddington Bear, PJ Masks, Scooby-Doo, Cars 3, Transformers and LEGO Ninjago among others.

Bladez Toyz will be showing off its Star Wars radio control toys, as well as unveiling a super size radio control Drone Racer to mark the launch of its Hot Wheels Drone Racerz range.

A special Cartoon Network Zone will play host to top brands such as The Powerpuff Girls, Ben 10 and Adventure Time.
