The modern Marlowes Shopping Centre in Hemel Hempstead is home to many of the multiple store groups, and Hemel Hempstead toy, model and nursery shops can all be found around the rest of the town. My Funki Baby is based here and is an online retailer of a big selection of baby and nursery goods.
Toys-UK is a large independent Hemel Hempstead toy shop, and is part of a small chain of independently owned toy and games shops. Shoppers should also try Enchanted Castles in the High Street for a quirky selection of traditional toys and gifts. Nearby towns like Berkhamsted and St Albans also have a good choice of local toy shops.
