Christmas Shopping: The oldest toy store in the United States, and the scene of countless Christmas classics, including Home Alone, FAO Schwartz is a New York institution. The stuff of kid's dreams, it's also an impressive space for adults to explore. Standing in the shadow of the Apple store cube, this toy store pulls out all the stops for its visitors. From the real toy soldier standing guard at the front door to daily face painting, everything FAO is larger than life -- including the oversized floor piano, the perfect place to make a few memories. If the idea of aimlessly wandering around a giant toy store gives you pause, opt to hire a personal shopper - all of the wonder, none of the stress.
