You have to go, just for the experience. Extremely crowded but every toy you can imagine!

My daughter got to do the Big Piano upstairs and if you get there early on a Sunday morning, then the line isn't long. We looked around for hours....amazing at what all they have! Including dipping dots ice cream to eat while you look around!

It is so much fun to see the soldiers as you are entering the store. If you are a Muppett's fan you can create your very own muppett to purchase. It is $99, but where else can you get one - no where! My boys loved it.

I got totally ripped off.. I paid $66 for three Chinese-food-box sized selection of candy. There was no visible price when my kids filled up their boxes but I never expected to be such ridiculously expensive. Candy is not even good quality. same stuff you get in the mall but four times more expensive. big, big, disappointment.

We had heard so much about the original flagship FAO in NYC, that the new smaller store is a little disappointing. They do still have the "Big" keyboard that the kids can play on, and they will even take their pic and sell it to you.

You might want to stop by if you are in the area, however don't make a special trip.
