Our history Husband and wife team Gary and Catherine Grant founded The Entertainer in 1981 when they opened a local toy shop in Amersham, Buckinghamshire. Fast forward to today and The Entertainer is the biggest independent toy retailer in the UK and growing at an average of one new store per month.

Our values Charity – The Entertainer tithes its profits via its charitable wing, The Grant Foundation, which makes donations to several children’s charities. Sunday trading – You won’t find any of our stores open on Sundays. Our teams work extremely hard all week, so Sundays are reserved as a day to relax and spend time with friends and family. Ethics – We only sell toys we believe have real play value, represent good value for money and are suitable for the children they’re made for.
