I bought F.A.O Schwarz 753-Piece Build-A-Coaster Playset-753 piece set for my 9 year boy grandson . The instruction manual is very difficult to follow even for an adult. The construction is fragile and is NOT WORKING as suggested. It was a TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY.

FAO Schwarz is an amazing place. Kids really loved the floor piano. The soldier outside is great! Expensive but well worth the visit.

The store is definitely a place for toy lovers to go. For me it was a little crowded and crazy for things you could buy online. It do have limited edition Barbies and Star Wars Barbies if they are in stock. It is close to Rockefeller ice skating rink. So if you are a toy collector or know one this is the store for you.

This is the new location for FAO and it is very big.

They have everything you want in a toy store. Including the piano from the movie.

Pack patience and if you do not like crowds, it may be an issue.

The kids will love it.

So many things jam packed into one store. Lots of displays and people demonstrating toys that you could spend all day in here. From magic tricks to customizing your own race car - wow. Dont forget the piano (as seen in Big).
