“Fantastic Experience”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

Loved the gigantic store. My kids liked running on the large piano in the store. They also appreciated all the large displays of toys. Mom loved the sweets shop which had a large selection of classic candies as well as unique ones. My girls both enjoyed creating their own dolls at the store. They have 12" create your own dolls which are easier on the budget than the 18" American Girl dolls.

“Everything I thought it would be!”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

This store is amazing. They have any type of toy you can think of, and to my surprise, not everything is expensive. They have numerous toys that are exclusive to FAO Schwarz in NYC that are reasonably priced. Adults can have just as much fun as the kiddos. Those of you who grew up in the 80's will enjoy the giant piano, and the Zoltar machine from the movie BIG. The super-sized boxes of candy were also cool to see.

Got to dance on the Big Piano with my daughter which was fun. This toy store is just neat. If you are a shopper then add this store to your list. It is a fun store.

Surprising how much fun it is to spend time strolling in this amazing toy store. We walked round and took photos and played with cool toys and then visited the candy area and laughed t all the cool candies and sizes. Fun for all ages even if you don't have your children with you
