HI all. My son is turning 12 the day after we arrive in NYC from Australia in September. He is super excited about waking up in NYC for his birthday and I really want to make it a special day for him however I obviously dont know how jetlagged we will all be. We were all hopeless on our last trip to the US in 2010 to Anaheim but I was fine on my one and only trip to NYC in 2006. I dont know if it has something to do with the West to east?? Anyway I dont want to book anything but we are staying at the Salisbury so I thought we might wander down 7th avenue to Toys R us, have a look around there, I believe I can get a birthday message to him on the board on Broadway. From there up to the Hershey and M&M store. I believe I can also get his name on the Hershey board and some personalised M&M's. Then across to Rockefeller for TOTR and the Nintendo store. Depending on the time and weather I thought we might try and hang around for the night time tour of TOTR too. Maybe if its not too late and were not too exhausted we might be able to fit in FAO schwarz somewhere too. He wants New york pizza for tea and I believe there is a decent pizzieria near The salisbury called Angelos so i think we will eat there. I know this is all touristy and man made but for a little boy who loves toys, chocolates and gaming I think it will be ok.
Does anyone have any other ideas or know where I can get a cake for him? Does columbus circle wholefoods sell cakes does anyone know? Thank you in advance for any input, its greatly appreciated
