The super learning robo MIKO, the Pioneer Drone, the hi-life playful furnished dollhouse and Infiniti hoverboard are also the key highlights of this festive season’s must-haves, and combine clever edu-tech and fantasy to build, role-play and create.
The coveted list of the season’s most exciting toys was unveiled by actor and mom Neha Dhupia at the world’s first Hamleys Play Store at Jio World Drive BKC on 9th, amid a magical, festive party for leading mommy influencers and their children.
Surrounded by Santa and his elves, Neha and popular mommy influencer Simone Khambatta unveiled the toys that are sure to stimulate children’s imaginations and make playtime a more exciting experience.
