Considered to be the oldest toy store in the United States of America, FAO Schwarz was founded in 1862 by German immigrant Frederick August Otto Schwarz. At first, he named the toy store ‘Toy Bazaar’. The FAO Schwarz logo changed through the years, from a teddy bear, to a toy soldier, to a rocking horse, to an animated clock tower.
