The brand's flagship store on 5th Avenue was known for its life-sized stuffed animals, high-end toys and interactive displays for kids and adults.

Many may remember the giant piano that was made famous in the movie, "Big."

The new store is scheduled to open in November in Rockefeller Plaza with 20,000 square feet of fun for all ages.
