Owner description: This world-famous toy store is a great place for kids to browse, play - and of course, shop.

Had unique items and was worth going to. Was very crowded. Neat candy shop. We always go when in NY and it seems to change in some way every time so is never boring.

After seeing the movie big as a child I always wanted to visit the store and play on the piano and see the toy soldiers. My wife wasn't really big on going to the store but after we left we both had the best time and it toke us back to our child hoods
It really is a must do before you die

Think about a place that makes it possible to take you back to your childhood. This place is FAO Schwarz!

Spend some time (hours, maybe) to walk around the store and don't miss the Big Piano!

We had a fun time walking around the various levels of FAO Schwarz, there were so many demonstrations, interactive activities, and basically every toy you could possibly think of. Would be fun for families with children or big kids like us. They also have a huge candy selection.

What an amazing place to visit!!! WOW!
I am 23 and loved this place like a child! Sweets and chocolate galore, teddys and toys by the tonnes and just a really magical place to visit! I am not going to give too much away because you really must go and see this place.

The BIG Piano - WOW! Free of charge and hundreds of photo oppourtunties! We went early in the morning and there were no queues and only one person on the piano - and of course we did a duet ;)

We returned to FAO Schwarz on our last day in NYC and spent $60 on sweets and goodies to bring home.

Go! Be a kid for the day :)
