Christmas in Dubai 2019: Hamleys is transforming into a spectacular winter wonderland

To celebrate Christmas, The Dubai Mall's magical toy store Hamleys is transforming into a beautiful winter wonderland for all the family to enjoy.

Known as the finest toy store in the world, Hamleys is a family favourite destination all year round. But for the holiday season, the entire store is going to be given a wonderful festive overhaul.

So, grab your loved ones and get into the Christmas spirit at Hamleys.

Admire a tree lighting
There’s nothing more festive than a Christmas tree lighting. On Friday December 6 at 6pm, Hamleys will be switching on the lights of its stunning, sparkling 20ft Christmas tree. Embrace the holiday spirit and bring the whole family together to watch the tree become lit. Following the lighting ceremony, get ready to warm up those vocal cords with a 20-minute sing song of all your favourite Christmas carols. The fun doesn’t stop there! You can then enjoy the carols in store every weekend, and from Thursday 19th every day until Christmas Day. Rejoice!
Free. Fri Dec 6, 6pm (tree lighting). Thu-Sat, 6.15pm & 8pm until Sat Dec 14, daily from Thu Dec 19-Wed Dec 25 (carols).

Walk through a Winter Village
Meet polar bears, reindeers and snowmen as you make your way through Hamleys’ icy, winter wonderland (courtesy of a snow machine) on your way to Santa’s Grotto. Once there, your little ones can meet the big man in red himself and whisper their wish list in his ear – provided they are on his nice list of course! Then it’s time to get stuck into gingerbread and cookie decorating, where they can also make snow cones and create their own snow globe.

Indulge in a frozen treat
Little eyes will light up at the delicious ice cream rolls on offer throughout the holiday season while little tummies will be very grateful for them.
