For toy lovers, young and old, the FAO Schwarz Rockefeller Center Toy Store in New York is a treat. An iconic film moment when Tom Hanks and Robert Loggia jumped up and down the Walking Piano was captured there. The man behind the world’s most iconic toy store was Frederick August Otto Schwarz. His childlike wonder resulted in the FAO Schwarz emporium, which has built toys for more than 150 years. In the upcoming Bears, Dolls, and Trains Auction, vintage stuffed toys from FAO Schwarz will be offered by Turner Auctions + Appraisals.
An original Steiff vintage giraffe that was once a store display will be available in the sale. The giraffe stands eight feet tall and still has the original tag and button in the ear. Another presented Steiff animal is said to be the largest stuffed walrus at 44 inches. It has a broken tusk with signs of age. Among non-stuffed toys, an electric Lionel Legacy Milwaukee Road Bipolar is up for bid. It is a locomotive toy for those who love toy trains and tracks. It comes in its original Lionel Legacy box.
