Getting into the holiday spirit just got a little bit easier thanks to a new partnership between the beloved toy store FAO Schwarz and the brand new Conrad New York Midtown.

The two brands are teaming up this holiday season to create a one-of-a-kind suite at the hotel filled with wall-to-wall toys from the toy store, Afar reported. And yes, it even includes the massive floor piano made famous in the Tom Hanks film, "Big."

“We’ve always wanted to do something like this with a hotel. To imagine the joy and wonder that will captivate guests from the minute they open the door—it’s magical,” David Niggli, chief merchandising officer of FAO Schwarz, told Afar.

The Holiday Suite is currently bookable for stays from Nov. 18, 2019, to Jan. 5, 2020. Inside, guests can roam around the spacious 1,800-square-foot suite and play to their heart’s content with all the toys flowing out of the living room. Just which toys will you get? According to Afar, the toys include a toy gourmet kitchen, multiple train sets, the dance-on piano, working DJ turntables, hobby horses, 8- to 10-foot-tall stuffed animals, vintage Barbie dolls, and enough musical instruments to form your own band.

And, if you fall in love with any specific toy, you can simply purchase it to bring home as everything in the room is shoppable.

While the holiday suite is certainly an excellent reason to book, the hotel has more to offer those looking to not sleep surrounded by toys. 

If you want to stay in another one of the hotel's luxurious suites without sleeping surrounded by toys, you can still get in on the fun. The hotel is offering gifts on demand via its in-room toy menu all season long. So don’t worry, Santa will deliver to everyone in the hotel this year. (As long as you’re on the nice list.)
