When you imagine a toy store, you’d probably think of stuffed animals, dolls, model trains and toy cars. But that’s not even half of what you’ll find at FAO Schwartz. Located just outside of Central Park in Manhattan, New York, this toy store is unlike anything you’ve ever experienced. It’s three floors of games, toys, books, dress-up clothes and more. And the best part? There’s something for all ages!


The Options are Endless

In this gigantic store, you’ll find sections dedicated to both boys and girls. There are gorgeous doll houses, doll and Barbie accessories, including a rotating Barbie runway! And there’s a whole aisle dedicated to bright-colored costumes. There’s also a huge selection of toy cars and trains, action figures, and science & exploration toys. You’ll also find arts & crafts, board games, puzzles, DVDs and story books. And if you’re toy shopping on a budget, there’s a great selection of discounted toys selling for up to 70% off!


Movie Paraphernalia

Do you love Harry Potter? Then you’ll enjoy all the authentic-looking Harry Potter paraphernalia that FAO Schwartz has to offer. You’ll find a model of the Hogwarts Express, the Marauder’s Map, Hermione’s Time Turner, the Wizard’s Cup, and a Wizard’s Chess set. You’ll also find sorting hats and wizard hats, scarves and winter hats of each of the four houses, and replicas of each character’s wands! And don’t forget to take a picture with the life size Harry Potter characters made out of LEGO at the front entrance.

But there’s more than just Harry Potter paraphernalia. You’ll also find cool collectibles from The Chronicles of Narnia, The Lord of the Rings, Pirates of the Caribbean, Da Vinci Code and more!


Beyond Toys

If you’re planning on spending a few hours at FAO Schwartz, no problem! There are tons of things to do besides shop. You can participate in a pottery workshop, dance on the giant piano, play video games or even buy candy from the endless selection on the main floor.


More Than a Toy Store

With the friendly staff dressed up as [kwlink 14648]mascots and demonstrating the toys, as well as the bonus activities, FAO Schwartz is more than just a toy store. It’s a fun-filled gaming experience for both kids and kids at heart.
