The toy store CAM Schwarz is one of most famous in town. It is located in Rockefeller Center and is New York’s largest toy store.
It is divided into several sections, in which you can find all kinds of stuffed animals, magic instruments, dolls, science, a candy and sweets section… of all imaginable sizes, etc.
But if this toy store is known for anything, it’s that you can play a giant piano…with your feet, which you’ll remember from the movie Big from a few years ago.
If you are caught on a cold day in New York, you can be a good place for kids to have fun in New York..
Very close to the FAO you will find the toy store LEGO for fans of colored blocks.
As you enter, you will see the Statue of Liberty, made entirely out of Lego, of course. But, in our humble opinion, what you really need to see is the life-size yellow taxi that you will find next, in which you can climb and take thousands of photos.
You can also see, among others, the Empire State Building, the Big Apple and the Brooklyn Bridge.
And don’t forget the zone, where you’ll find thousands of different pieces to let your imagination run wild 😉 .

This museum was opened in 1869 and is one of the best museums to visit with children in New York..

Favorites for children.
TIPS: Today, there is no longer a “pay as you wish” option for tourists, which used to mean that you pay what you want for each ticket. Therefore, there is no choice but to pay the full entrance fee or have one of New York Sightseeing Passesto include it.

Inside Bryant Park, we also recommend taking the kids to the beautiful carousel located on one side of the park. It has hand-painted horses and French cabaret music.
If you visit New York with kids during the summer months there are storytellers in the reading room and a puppet show on the carousel.
In and around the park there are several restaurants and food stalls, but you can also have a picnic on the lawns or use the free tables and chairs found throughout the park..
