It's not a trip to NYC without a visit here. Go live out your Big fantasies and play the floor piano. You know you want to.

As a kid I??ve always had my reservations about FAO Schwarz, the upscale store where only celebrities and particular affluent customers can take their children. This year I decided I wanted however to pick something up for my niece??s first birthday. Upon entering I quickly realized that this unofficial 5th Avenue landmark has gone through several renovations and has since come a long way from the classic luxury allure of toys and collectors items which has made it so famous. You won??t find many products by big discounters here anymore. Now their inventory primarily consists of collections of hard-to-find and oh-so-expensive items such as scooters, adult karaoke machines and, mini-luxury car models of Hummers and Jaguars. I remember getting a beautiful silver toy remote control Corvette (definitely one of the best Christmas??s). But one does one get for a little one year girl? The staff here was very helpful in resolving that. One associate walked with me through the entire store until we settled upon this beautiful doll. As I walked out I noticed that one thing that FAO Schwarz didn??t change about their store. The giant piano keys which have been featured in so many movies and Christmas television specials thankfully still remains.

Just discovered this very cool Paint your own Pottery studio inside FAO Schwarz! I knew FAO Schwarz hosted many customized toy experiences, like Make your own Muppet or Make your own Barbie... but I was pleasantly surprised! It's the most affordable experience with the most versatility. Can't drink coffee out of a Barbie! Love FAO Schwarz and love this studio. I'm hoping to book my sister's birthday party in this space.

Pros: Family oriented, fun, hands-on, do-it-yourself

Cons: Week to wait

I just spent a fun afternoon at FAO Schwarz. One of the highlights of our trip was stopping by the Make Paint Pottery Studio right next to the Big Piano. My and my little girl both painted. It was a fun memory we will share forever. Also a highlight was the fact that we could get both pieces shipped home to LA and not have to worry about carrying them around the rest of the trip. Highly recommend this and can't wait to see the finished pottery.

I haven't been to FAO Schwarz since they remodled it. Let me assure you that this isn't the famous FAO Schwarz that everyone loved. Now, sadly, it's more like a Wal-Mart. Gone are all the very creative theme rooms for the Star Wars and Barbie toys. They have been replaced by sterile white walls. They took out the giant robot elevator. After FAO Schwarz went bankrupt and then remodled, they clearly cut back expenses on all the things that made it magical. I highly recommend you don't waste your time. It pains me to say it, but go to Toys R Us in times square. You'll be better off.

FAO Schwarz is a kids dream come true! Floors and floors of toys and you can play with tons of them! More than one kid can take in at a time this store will definetly be the highlight of a young kids NYC visit. Lots of demos and product displays will get you interested in things you never thought of! Great place to buy weird things for people back home too!

You do not go to FAO without expecting crowds and high prices but you know you will have a blast with the amazing items they have including the always large teddy bears/other animals. This is really such a great place to have a good time being a kid or taking your kids. Overall, a must see whether you are a tourist or a New York native. Have fun and splurge a little bit because that is the wonderful experience of going there

This is the place of all places to be a kid again..... and if you are a kid you have gone to paradise.... You are greeted at the front door by toy soldiers walking in front of the store, or by charaters from an one of the toy lines that they carry..... It is a place of amazement.... What ever kind of toy you are into, it is there.... The sales staff caters to you...... They have special collectors editions made up for their store from Barbies to Hot Wheels to Clifford the Dog..... You name it, they have it, even solid gold Corgis..... I forget how many floors there are, I think it is 3 or 4 and there are different ways of getting to places inside of the store.... They even have a CANDY FACTORY where you can get all kinds of goodies.... Setting a kid free inside of the store would be like setting me free inside of a jewelry store and being able to try everything and cuddle up with diamonds while walking down a pathway of rubies.... If it just such a feel good kinda place even for adults..... I hear that they have slumber parties there, but have not heard any of the details...... If you saw the movie BIG when Tom Hanks was jumping on the BIG PIANO, you can get that there too.... ( The piano, not Tom..... Christmas time there it is like a zoo, wall to wall parents while the kids are off playing...... Whenever I make it to the bity I go there, I am a Barbie Collector and there are all kinds of things that they carry there that you cannot find anyplace else.... It is a unique store in the way that they have what every other store carries, but they take it many levels down the road to excellence..

PROS: Name the toy they have it and then some
CONS: You pay for the excellence

FAO schwatrz is a must see for children and adults. They have tons of really cool and new toys out for you to play with. The store is absolutely huge. They have every toy imaginable. They are a bit overpriced. Its worth taking a look around but not buying.

Now that they have remodeled, the store is much nicer. I think that they have almost every toy imaginable and they have a lot of them out so that you can "Try before you buy." They have everything that you need for gift wrapping and birthdays. It is usually crowded and there are a lot of kids but it is worth it. The displays are awesome and the candy section is unreal!

FAO is basically the Willy Wonka of the toy world. The store is humogeous! A ferry wheel actually inside the store. A giant keyboard on the floor. This store is a great place to browse, take a date or just go and be a kid. It's a really big store so it's easy to get lost and toys are not cheap. Still its a fun place to browse around as long as you bring a map

You can find toys of all sorts at FAO New York and they are all divided out according to type. There was even antique toys and toys that you can't find at your regular toy store. The draw for us was the giant piano and the young men who played it were fantastic.

This is the store that kids dream about - not only at Christmas time, but all year long. Good luck to the parent who takes a kid in here. You won't get them out without a fight and a bag or two stuffed with toys. You could spend an entire day in here, and not see and do everything. What an amazing place!

Absolutely do not miss this store.

FAO Schwarz is still one of the worlds great toy shops. Three floors including the basement filled with great toys and a fun enviornment. Store employees demonstrate toys leading to a fun atmosphere. The new Ice Cream Parlor is pretty good. Avoid on weekends as the lines get long.

This and Hamleys in London are the two grand daddies of the toy super store. This place is huge and newly renovated with all sorts of interesting activities that didn't exist before. You can have a customized Hot Wheels made, get your picture taken and eat at the new Ice Cream parlor as well as shop for toys.

PROS: Large selection lots of eye candy
CONS: very crowded at times sometimes a line to get in

You cannot miss this Toy Store in New York City. Now is newly renovated with an amazing lighted ceiling, a super huge plush collection and many many more toys. The employees are really nice and helpful. It has a concourse level with games, action figures and sport toys. The FAO Schweetz ice cream parlor has a wonderful dessert variety. And the dolls upstairs are simply breathtaking! You and your kids will have fun playing in the Big piano and riding the simulator.
