"For everyone that's a kid at heart" FAO Schwarz Tip by pigletsmom
FAO Schwarz, New York City: 26 reviews and 37 photos
Opened in 1870, this place is an institution. I have very fond memories of visiting this store as a child. FAO Schwarz is the most wonderful toy store in the world. It is a giant department store filled with toys. Nothing even comes close. The Tom Hanks "Big" keyboard dance scene was filmed here. Multi level and full of every thing imaginable. At Christmas time there is actually a long line of parents and their desperate kids that are waiting to get inside for their ultimate childhood fantasy. Truly Fantastic!
What to buy: From baby rattles to $30,000 lifesize toy cars. Large log houses, slides and giant teddy bears. It's a wonderful feast for your eyes.
What to pay: I think it can be expensive, but it's the experience your'e buying.
