We took the kids into this New York institution and it was a lot of fun. The kids had a blast and it was great seeing them so excited. If you have never taken the time to enjoy this amazing store, do not hesitate and just go. The looks on the kids' faces was well worth the experience.

Visiting FAO Schwarz was one of the first times I wished I had kids. They have everything from lego statues to a Muppet workshop…where you can build your very own muppet. A full sized one.

It was really hard not to throw my credit cards at them and charge as much candy and muppets as I could.

This was incredible. It was upbeat and fun and started with a candy raid - how can it go down from there.

The Toy Soldier was a bit over the top and at one point tossed a baby doll over his shoulder and make a little girl burst into tears but overall he was a hit with the kids. For $40 each we got to get inside the store before it opened, fill a bag of candy, demo some toys, tour every floor, play on the piano and then eat breakfast. I would recommend this to everyone with kids - worth every penny!!!

Loved visiting FAO Schwarz, my older sister and I played chopsticks on the "big piano" it was a blast. A great memory for always. Had fun picking out things to bring home for my daughters.
