FAO Schwarz is on Airbnb, so you can spend the night in your favorite toy store

Here's the scoop on this magical, one-time experience!

Airbnb is making every child's dream staycation a reality. 

The booking site has partnered with FAO Schwarz to offer a magical overnight sleepover at NYC's iconic 20,000 square-foot toy store. On Dec 21, one lucky family of four from the same household will be able to enjoy an evening of sweet perks amongst teddies, dolls, race cars and other nifty gadgets. Plus, an FAO Schwarz toy solider will be there every step of the way—masked and six feet apart—to assist. 

The perks are aplenty, and include a decadent dining room dinner, a shopping spree courtesy of Airbnb, music lessons on the giant Piano, a session at the Build-A-Bear workshop and comfy accommodations that rival the Plaza, if you ask us. 

See what a night at FAO looks like!

Here's how to apply: 

Beginning Dec 15 at noon EST, guests can request the stay for $25. To make the season even brighter, Airbnb will make a one-time donation to FAO Schwarz's nonprofit partner St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Safety procedures and information are available on the Airbnb website

Staying in? No sweat! 

FAO Schwarz will come to you. Not only does the Rockefeller Center shop offer new online classes for kids, but it is also teaming up with Airbnb for even more online experiences, including slime making classes and holiday story times.
