FAO Schwartz, Boston
When coming to Boston with children or without, make sure to stop by this wonderful toy store. It is two stories of fun and games for children and their big kid parents alike. Plus who could pass up posing for a picture or two on the giant bear outside the store. That bear has become a land mark for Bostonians and tourists. Moms, dads and kids can spend an unlimited amount of time playing with the displays, reading books and even doing an art project or two on activity days. They have the most adorable collection of stuffed animals here. Little girls will have a ball in the dress up section. They have just about any item a little girl will need to become a fairy princess.
What to buy: Dress up clothes for girls and boys, what kid doesn't like to make believe.
