Sad news today: Iconic New York City toy store FAO Schwarz is closing its Fifth Avenue location July 15, 2015. This only adds more pain to the recent announcement that the flagship Toys R Us in Times Square shutters at the end of the year.

No more Toy Soldiers standing guard at the front door. No more life-sized Big piano. No more fortunes from Zoltar. No more two story tall LEGO T-Rex or King Kong climbing up the Empire State building. No more Holiday Decorations, which always blew us away.

Worst of all…no more Ferris wheel. I know we’ll have to get at least one more trip to New York City just to ride the wheel. My kids try to time their place in line to get Mr. Potato Head or the Hot Wheels car because they can’t stand the shame of…The Fisher Price Little People.
