5th Avenue Fun

One of the coolest things to do in NYC is to go shopping on 5th Avenueshopping on 5th Avenue.  We headed that way on Easter Sunday so some of the stores were closed but that was okay because there were tons of people walking around with awesome hats on that they wore for the Easter Parade! 

We passed by Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Jimmy Choo, Fendi, Joe Fresh (a JCP brand) and Prada

Tons of great shopping options!  Most are out of my price range but it sure is fun to look at all the eye candy as you walk down 5th Avenue.

We also saw Tiffany & Co.  We didn’t buy anything from there this that day because they were closed but coming soon you will see what my hubby did buy me!

We passed a ton of shops and then finally stopped and went in Trump Tower.

At the top of the escalator they had this original sale ledger.  Very cool to see.

They had all kinds of toys.  Nearly every toy imaginable and they of course had Barbies!

Those of you old enough to remember the movie, “Big”, will know why we stopped here.

You had to wait in a line and then get your pic taken in front of a green backdrop before they would let you play on the big piano.  Of course it was to try and get you to purchase a pic but we didn’t.  We took our own pics!

If you are saying to yourself….WHAT AM I MISSING!  There was a movie in 1988 called Big where a boy wishes to be big at a magic fortune teller machine named Zoltar (click HERE to watch that), he wakes up the next morning and finds himself in an adult body.  There’s a scene with Tom Hanks and Robert Loggia where they stumble across a big piano in FAO Schwarz.  You can watch the clip by clicking HERE.

After we were done playing I had my hubby take a pic next to Zoltar

While we were in the store we shopped a little for our grandson Ben.  Oh me, oh my that little man LOVES the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  My daughter-in-law hadn’t found the shell for his back yet so we bought that and a talking ninja.

Ben received the package yesterday and here’s his response.  He really thought it was the greatest thing ever.  🙂

Of course he had to try on his turtle shell.

And then he sent a video to Nana (me) and Poppy (my husband) which you can watch by CLICKING HERE!  🙂

And last but not least I can’t forget to mention that there was a smooshed penny opportunity in FAO Schwarz!!
