Legendary American toy company FAO Schwarz has landed in London ‒ at Selfridges. An exclusive collection of more than 65 of the brand’s classic toys and cuddly animals is offered on the fourth floor of the Selfridges Oxford Street store. Its arrival coincides with the reopening of FAO Schwarz in New York, at a new store in Manhattan. The American brand was founded in 1862 by Frederick August Otto Schwarz, who specialised in seeking out the best toys from across the world. A special gift from the brand’s range at Selfridges would be the Jumbo Teddy Bear, which is 92 inches tall and perfect for children and adults alike.
