F.A.O. Schwarz is a famous toy store in New York City — the epitome of a toy store straight out of a Christmas movie. For grown ups and kids alike, F.A.O. Schwarz has become a must see tourist destination. Despite numerous visits to this store, the amount and quality of toys always amaze me. Inside F.A.O. Schwarz one can find candy shops, a make your own ceramic shop, a Muppet Puppet building workshop, and design your own Barbie computers.
F.A.O. is definitely not a place my family could have afforded to shop when I was a kid.
As I visited the different “departments” I came upon a nauseatingly familiar sight — Evolution from How Should We Define Evolution?
It took me a minute to:
a. Realize this was the same Evolution
b. Attempt to understand why they have a small scale shop inside the toy store.
This seems to be a “science-y” section where kids can buy insects, model dinosaurs, stuffed toads for $49, and real alligator heads for $29 or $39.
‘Cause you know nothing says play with me like stuffed toads for sale at a toy store.
