FAO Schwarz has made its return to New York City after its flagship Fifth Avenue store closed its doors in 2015. The new Rockefeller Center location houses the store’s signature massive clock tower and the iconic keyboard on the floor.
An Experience for All Ages
FAO Schwarz is home to one-of-a-kind toys as well as toys of popular culture. FAO Schwarz at Rockefeller Center is more than a toy store–its an experience! The new location features a toy grocery store where children can shop among artificial produce, complete with small carts, a checkout counter and kitchen supplies. Staged nearby are live magic shows and space for assembling custom remote-control cars. At the center of the 200,000 square foot location, visitors will find a 27-foot-tall rocket ship filled with stuffed bear astronauts. A visit to FAO Schwarz promises to be an interactive experience and deep nostalgia for children and parents alike.
