Famed for it’s life-size interactive floor piano, singing clock-tower and puppet park, F.A.O Schwarz is considered the toy empire of New York – featuring in landmark “kids” movies such as Big and Home Alone 2. Visitors will find more than just a shelf-lined toy-store as Schwarz also lends itself to the thematic and theatrical stores of which New York has a plenitude. Once you’ve explored the farthest corners of the store which include such attractions as the The Muppet Whatnot Puppet Shop and the interactive “Design-a-Costume” department, head back to the huge floor piano for some great theatrical entertainment and children’s shows.
