We all dreamt of playing the giant piano from the film 'Big'. Make this dream a reality at FAO Schwartz.
The famous giant piano.
Kids also have a place to shop in the big city, as New York is home to the world’s most famous toyshops. FAO Schwartz is the shop of all children’s shops, and is located on Fifth Avenue. This establishment opened its doors in 1862, and houses the famous giant piano that Tom Hanks danced on in the film ‘Big’. This piano is still displayed in its enormous shop window, and crowds of children come in every day to try it out. Even though this shop is also famous for its high price tags, you can find all kinds of gifts and souvenirs at affordable prices. In any case, a visit alone to this establishment is an amazing experience in itself. If you visit with children, be warned that they will probably want to leave with a New York souvenir for themselves.
