A Visit to F.A.O. Schwarz.
A visit to FAO Schwarz is a popular destination for a 1st time visitor to New York, this famous historic toy store, on 5th Avenue has not only toys for sale but shopping experiences.
At the shop entrance you will be greeted by a Character Toy Soldier offering a photo opportunity. Then walk into the store filled with toys, games, puzzles, stuffed animals large and small, train sets, construction sets, dolls houses and furniture, a candy department full of eye catching and mouthwatering candy.
Customise your own Muppet in the Muppet Whatnot Workshop, visit the Big Piano featured in the film 'Big' starring Tom Hanks and perform your own version of Chopsticks, or have your fortune told by Zoltar, the fair ground fortune telling machine also featured in the film 'Big'.
You can hire a personal shopper to assist you in your purchases.
Customers can also book a tour guided by a Toy Soldier for a unique browse of the store and learn of its history etc.
