Hamleys Stage and Storytelling Kiddie Sessions

Let the littles join in a full Hamleys Experience! That’s right, mama, it’s time to sit back and relax whilst Hamleys keeps the kiddos on their toes with their weekly stage and storytelling sessions!The team is kitted with plenty of colour and fun to give us an evening to remember. With a chance to play with their incredible bubbles in the fascinating bubble shows, and even the chance to build our own galaxy with Lego Star Wars, we have full faith that these experts will keep our little monsters entertained. If Star Wars isn’t quite your bub’s thing, they can also take part in the Barbie Spy Camp Challenge (and they may even win an exciting prize!), or just sit back and enjoy the show…

SMDXB City Centre Mirdif Giant Pictionary Dubai 150516

Invitation to Play: Giant Pictionary

Take this favourite family game up a notch, and get the whole fam involved in Giant Pictionary. We’ve all fallen for the popular board game, but we’ve yet to play it on this large a scale! Put your artistic skills (or lack of artistic skills…) to the test on Monday morning. Rumour has it they even have exciting prizes up for grabs, so it’s definitely worth getting in that (healthy) competitive mindset, and having a practice round with the littles beforehand. Sharpen your pencils and get ready to doodle your way through the day!

When: Monday, 16 May 2016, from 10am
Where: City Centre Mirdif 
How much: Simply shop to play…
