Went with my mom as I really wanted to see the toy store from the Home Alone movie...
The first floor had giant size minions you could take photos with.
There was a huge candyland in the back. The third floor still has the giant piano.

This store is amazing! We stopped in to take a peek and stayed for a couple of hours. Hilights included: amazing adult sized statues in Lego of the Statue of Liberty, Batman, toy soldier, robot and Hello Kitty; The largest collection of stuffed animals ever under one roof; beautiful rock display and rocks for sale; huge remote control section; comics and graphic novels; huge candy store; magic section; doll house section; individually sold "people", "creatures". And lots of games, Barbies, dolls, baby toys, Playmobil, cars and trucks... You name it, they probably have it!

If you have seen and loved the film BIG...this is a MUSt when in NYC! You can play on the big piano for FREE nd buy a photo of yourself too! This made my dreams come true and the shop itself is unreal....even at 29 I was amazed

The only reason I went there - The Big Floor Piano - served its purpose. The children would enjoy it a lot, and its a good time pass for about 30-35 minutes. The rest of the store is actually a toy store with some counters for candies, but its a little costly and so avoid any shopping here.

All the cool toys from past, present and future. As everything in NYC, you are always in the middle of a crowd.
