FAO Schwarz Cupcake Backpack and More

By on Wednesday, January 4th, 2012

Growing up in Connecticut I remember it was always fun to visit the Stamford Connecticut mall.  The mall had crazy escalators that seemed to float in mid air as they transversed from one level to another across the center of the mall.  The mall had an A&W All American Food which as kids seemed like a special treat.  Most importantly, located inside the mall was an FAO Schwarz toy store.   As a kid, it was hard to beat a toy store, especially one as great as FAO Schwarz, which is now one of the oldest operating stores in the US.

The FAO Schwarz store is long since gone from the Stamford Mall but the New York City and online stores are still open.  I was looking around the online store and was excited to find some awesome cupcake items.  My top favorite is the FAO Exclusive Pinkalicious 12.5 inch cupcake backpack!  Although it’s small the $14.99 backpack is really cute and I know little girls would love the backpack shaped like a cupcake after having had a heart shaped backpack when I was little.

Little Tikes Cupcake Kitchen from Amazon 












Some of its amazing features are —

  • Stove burners make sound effects
  • Real working drawer
  • Real working oven doors
  • Storage space for plates and accessories
  • Includes 1 kitchen,1 cupcake tray, 4 cupcakes, 2 plates, 2 forks, 2 spoons, 2 knives, 2 spice shakers, 1 spatula, 1 pot with lid

If I had had this amazing toy as a young child, my life may have been very different. I may just have picked up my love of baking at a younger age and maybe by now I’d have my own bakery! Alas I had a Mickey Mouse camera as I child and am now full blown in love with photography because of it.

When I have children, I will be sure that they have this great toy!
