NEW YORK WITH KIDS: OUR FAVORITE TOY STORES

07/02/2015,

New York is such a fascinating city!

We visited NYC when my kids were just 5 and 2 years old and every single day they would ask us if they could visit again their 2 favorite toy stores: FAO Schwarz and the Lego Store at the Rockefeller Center.

FAO Schwarz flagship store in New York (located at 767 5th Avenue @ 58th St.)  is a must-see destination. It is a world famous toy store where kids are greeted by the store’s real-life Toy Soldiers. Their larger-than-life piano, featured in the film BIG, was one of our favorite attractions.

 

My kids just loved jumping and stomping their feet on this amazing piano!
It is a special place in NYC and I regret knowing that this three-level store, which is a popular tourist destination,  will close soon.

The Lego Store at the Rockefeller Center (620 Fifth Avenue @ 50th Street) is also a great toy store.  They have different consumer-friendly play areas, innovative displays and lots of Lego sets built all over the store. There is also a living room with an interactive play area in the center of the store. We found some products that are hard to find in Madrid and some LEGO Exclusives also.

The store displays the whole Rockefeller Center in Legos, very true to the real building.

I hope that we can return soon to NYC and discover many other toy stores.

I would like to wish a Happy 4th of July to all our American readers.
