In this beautiful and unique book, FAO Schwarz, the world's favorite toy store presents both a lively look at the toys we grew up with and a practical tool for parents interested in selecting the best toys for their children. Approximately fifty toys -- from such classics as Barbie and Legos to the hottest new toys on the market, such as Wild Planet's Supersonic Ear and the Hoberman Globe -- have been chosen for their educational value, ability to entertain children for long periods of time, affordability, and safety. In addition to colorful short stories of these great toys, acclaimed author Dr. Toy describes how each plaything helps children develop social and academic skills and how parents can support their child's developmental play needs.

With approximately 100 dazzling color photographs, FAO Schwarz Toys for a Lifetime covers every category of toys and games and features some of the most memorable and beloved toys, from infant and toddler toys to dolls and action figures to board games. Sprinkled throughout the book are fun facts and childhood reminiscences from well-known personalities about favorite toys, ranging from Spiderman creator Stan Lee to astronaut Charles Conrad.
