Having first opened its doors in 1862 in Baltimore, FAO Schwarz is a must-visit on the tourist trail in New York City, where you can have a go on dance-on piano made famous by the 1988 Tom Hanks film Big.
While the Cork pop-up is just a taste of what the brand has to offer, it’s sure to be a bit of fun for kids and grown-ups alike over Christmas, with plenty of inspiration for the Santa lists.
The FAO Schwarz pop-up is now open at Brown Thomas Cork, located on Maylor Street.
