New York ☆ FAO Schwarz

We walked into the FAO Schwarz thinking there was a place to eat. Our sweet friends wanted to pick a kid friendly place to eat and there used to be a cafeteria at FAO Schwarz, but apparently it no longer exists there. There were not many options around the area, so we ended up eating at a cafe right next to the store. After we ate, we walked back into FAO Schwarz.

What a fun store it is!!! It was like an amusement park version of a toy store. There are 3 stories and we saw two floors. We looked at some dress-up dresses. The section was overloaded with pink and purple. Our girls spent a good amount of time at the Big Piano section on the second floor. After their exercising on the piano, we walked around a little and saw a Barbie doll section. You can’t miss a Barbie section if you have a girl. It’s hard to believe how expensive some of the Barbie dolls are.

Taking a Break

Our younger daughter got hungry as she was still sleeping when we went to the cafe, so I stepped outside to feed her. Healthy travel meal, french fries from the cafe for her. Sorry, daughter. My husband and our older daughter went on a mission to get some gummy candies due to my request. They were unbelievably expensive for candies, but don’t you think it’s a bit hard to pass up an opportunity to buy candies from the candy store like the one you find at FAO Schwarz? Divine.

      No… Just gummy candies! Everything looked so expensive, plus I can pretty much get what I want here in the DC area. The experience itself was so delightful that I didn’t feel the need to shop there. 😀

    I loved this store when I went one of them in CA. Isn’t it awesome? though next time, I will probably have two children with me who want to sleep over in the store. need good 2 hours? I cannot believe your craving for the candies since I don’t have American sweet tooth. Dress-up space is dengerous!! and LEGO space too. wait….. toy store + children= always dengerous for the parents!! get ready for spending some….. but how can I pass such a fun filled store? Especially through your pictures, this place is nothing but fun!
