Build-A-Bear Workshop at FAO Schwarz


Over the past few years, midtown staple FAO Schwarz has welcomed many new departments and boutiques into its shop—everything from a make-your-own Muppet station to a kitchen for cooking workshops. The newest addition: Build-A-Bear Workshop. Kids visiting the second floor of FAO can now customize a stuffed friend, create a one-of-a-kind birth certificate for their pal and even add a voice to the doll. Scroll through our slide show to see pictures of the new store-within-a-store.
