If FAO Schwartz invented a nerd toyshop, this would be it. Some of the gifts here are exhibit-centric, while others are just plain fun, like the spy handbook, pet tornado, and mugs/shirts/magnets with periodic table humor. With all the focus on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) these days, this is a natural place to stock up on science fun while the kids are still amped from the MSI.
