Fao schwarz

Fao Schwarz is at the beginning of the Fifth Avenue next to Central Park and alongside other iconic stores such as Apple Store. At the entrance, you are welcomed by a man dressed in typical English soldier dress, furry hat included. It has several floors filled with all toys, costumes, dolls racial, collectible miniatures as the Smurfs, well, everything you can imagine. The main attraction is a giant piano on the top floor. It became very famous by the movie Big starring Tom Hanks

Remembering big big big

FAO Schwarz was founded in 1862 (this year celebrating its 150th anniversary), is the oldest toy store in the United States. It is a toy company known for its unique ultra high range of toys, stuffed life-size dolls and hundreds of different games. Store located on Fifth Avenue in New York is a popular tourist destination, largely for its large floor piano (remember the movie "big big big" starring actor Tom Hanks) and other cameos in movies and important . A piano part, I was struck by the great football of Barbies, of course, pink :-) but at a price attainable for little mortals.

Recuerdo de big big big

FAO Schwarz, fundada en 1862 (este año celebra su 150 Aniversario), es la tienda más antigua de juguetes de los Estados Unidos. Es una compañía de juguetes conocida por su singular gama altisima de juguetes, de peluches tamaño natural, muñecas y cientos de juegos diversos.

La tienda situada en la Quinta Avenida de Nueva York es un destino turístico muy popular, en gran parte por su gran piano de suelo (recordar la película "big big big" protagonizada por el actor Tom Hanks) y otros cameos en películas y series importantes.

A parte del piano, me llamó la atención el gran futbolín de Barbies, como no, color rosa :-) pero a un precio poco alcanzable para los mortales.

Un futbolín de la barbie

Reconozco que fui a esta maravillosa tienda de juguetes newyorkina a jugar con el piano de la película Big de Tom Hanks y cual fue mi chasco cuando al llegar me dijeron que si quería foto tendría que pareció tan mal, que pasé y me fui a recorrer la tienda (error! ahora me arrepiento de no tener esa imagen) y menuda tienda!
Tinen todos los juguetes que os podáis imaginar. Mi sección favorita la de las casas de muñecas, para perderse.
Como detalle gracioso un futbolín de barbies, todo rosa y con un precio de 24.000 dólares!!!!

One of the biggest and most famous to...

One of the biggest and most famous toy stores in the world, in the heart of NY in the middle of 5th Avenue: This is the FAO! There are 3 floors crowded the largest range of toys, dolls, stuffed animals, clothes and even sweets you'll find in life! And of course, the FAO is the place famous giant piano in the movie "I want to be great," in which Tom Hanks has fun playing. Besides, who wants to have the same experience, can pay a few dollars to stay there jumping and dancing too! When I went, the kids were there a lot of fun, and all adults, probably too embarrassed to do like in the movie, grinned and chattered palm! :-) But even if you do not dance to the public, you can buy the BIG Piano (a slightly smaller version, of course) and do a show at home! Difficult to leave the store with nothing! Place of crazy and cheer children and adults. Vambora?

Uma das maiores e mais famosas lojas de brinquedos do mundo, no coração de NY em plena 5ª avenida: essa é a FAO!

São 3 andares lotados da maior variedade de brinquedos, bonecas, bichos de pelúcia, roupas e até doces que você vai encontrar na vida! E é claro, a FAO é lugar do famoso piano gigante do filme “Quero ser grande”, no qual o Tom Hanks se diverte tocando.

Aliás, quem quiser ter a mesma experiência, pode pagar alguns dólares para ficar lá pulando e dançando também! Quando fui, as crianças estavam lá se divertido muito, e todos os adultos, provavelmente com vergonha de fazer como no filme, sorriam e batiam palma! :-)

Mas mesmo que você não dance para o público, dá para comprar o BIG Piano (numa versão um pouco menor, é claro) e fazer um show em casa!

Difícil é sair sem nada da loja! Lugar de enlouquecer e alegrar crianças e adultos. Vambora?

Although the opening of times square ...

Although the opening of Times Square Toys'R'Us has been able to remove the title star of the toys in NY, is an absolute must if you have children. If only for stepping on the piano that Tom Hanks showed us in "Big" and take a picture with the soldiers of the main entrance, a visit not to be missed.

Aunque la apertura del toys'r'us de Time Square le ha podido quitar el título de estrella de los juguetes en NY, es una visita imprescindible si vas con niños.
Aunque solo sea por pisar el piano que nos enseño Tom Hanks en "Big" y hacerse una foto con los soldados de la entrada principal, una visita para no perderse.
