On a recent get-together of the New York City area Simpsons collectors, SCS administrator blueduck37 visited the 'Kwik-E-Mart Boutique', the new Simpsons shop at the flagship FAO Schwartz location. The shop was designed to resemble Springfield's famous Kwik-E-Mart and features life-size sculptures of the Simpsons cast. A large sign above (from which Bart hangs, preparing some mischief no doubt) welcomes customers to the shop. The familiar face of owner Apu Nahasapeemapetilon greets them from behind the counter, complete with cash register and jars of beef jerky. The Simpsons family members (Homer, Marge, Lisa, and Maggie) are set up in the shop. The toys (all available for purchase, of course!) are held in display cases that are beautifully designed to resemble the freezer cases of a convienence store. The items sold in the shop include World of Springfield action figures, plush dolls, Blockos, bobbleheads, board games, Krusty jack-in-the-box, and more! This is the most well done Simpsons display we've ever seen in a toy store. I recommend anyone in the NYC area go check this out! It won't be around forever, so don't delay. And don't forget to bring a camera, because you'll want to take pictures!
Member HeadsUpCustoms welcomes you to FAO Schwartz.
