She said: “Welcoming a major retailer such as Toytown is great news for the centre as it’ll increase our variety of offers and for the city as a toy shop is much needed, we were excited to welcome everyone down for their grand opening on Saturday.”

The store was first established in Belfast in 1980 and has grown from that single shop into a national organisation.
