FAO Schwarz Internship Profile
From its humble beginnings in 1862 as an ordinary shop, FAO Schwarz has expanded to become a national toy empire. Today, the chain operates 16 stores coast to coast. Not just ordinary retail outlets, the stores also serve as showrooms for the latest toys, making them magnets for enthusiastic kids. The store has been featured in several motion pictures, most famously in Big, starring Tom Hanks. FAO Schwarz was also one of the first direct-to-consumer manufacturers, issuing its first catalog in 1976. Today, consumers can purchase toys on www.fao.com, including make-your-own muppets.
