What Year Was FAO Schwarz Established? Take A Look At Their Legendary Christmas Collection!

Established in 1862, FAO Schwarz has been a long-time favourite for parents and children of all ages. The flagship store ion Fifth Avenue is one of the most renowned stores in the world and a favorite destination for New Yorkers and international tourists.  Where else can you find a toy store that features a giant dance-on piano keyboard (even I jumped and skipped on that baby while I was pregnant) and breathtaking Grand Hall decorated with over 20,000 computer-controlled colored lights?

For Christmas, FAO Schwarz has revealed their Legendary Christmas Collection featuring a huge selection of luxurious and affordable gifts, hand-picked by the FAO team as some of the ‘best’ gifts of the season.

Barbie collectors will love the new Celebratory Silkstone 10th Anniversary Tribute Doll, inspired by the vintage Barbie. Priced at $149.99, this is definitely a splurge!

I love carry-along toys! The FAO Schwarz Dinosaurs in a Rock House comes with  7 cuddly dinosaurs that co-exist in a soft plushh rock house with a top carry handle. Price $59.99.

My favorite toy from their Legendary Christmas Collection has to be this Madame Alexander Wizard of Oz Dress-Up Tote. This soft doll comes with three interchangeable wigs, outfits and accessories, to transform her from Dorothy to Glinda the Good Witch to the Wicked Witch of the West. Price: $59.99.

FAO Schwarz is offering a sweet deal for the holidays! Every time you purchase a FAO Schwarz branded toy worth $45 or more, receive a free FAO Schwarz Princess Tin Tea Set or Signature Wind-up Tin Soldier ($19.99 value). Check out the rest of their Legendary Christmas Collection here!
