It was a success last year, so FAO Schwarz pop-up shop in Montreal is back at Hudson’s Bay again for its second appearance for the Holidays.

The famous New York City toy store (the one we saw in Big, starring Tom Hanks, brings all its best to the downtown Montreal Hudson’s Bay store on Ste. Catherine Street, including the piano dance mat Hanks danced on (not the same one, of course).

Because FAO Schwarz has been featured in so many Hollywood movies over the years, we all know it for the beautiful toys it sold.

Today, the Manhattan location we always saw in those movies doesn’t exist (it’s moved), but the name carries on and they have toys for any budget.

Sure, there are toys that go for over $1000 or their gorgeous giant teddy for $629, but there are lots of gift items for the average shopper, too.

It’s not just shopping for toys for the holidays, it’s a whole other experience that will whisk you into an imaginary world, full of adventure and whimsy.
