F A O



This is the FAO Schwarz bear, which used to be located in front of the FAO Schwarz store on Boylston Street. The store closed in 2004, and the bear now lives here, greeting visitors to The Floating Hospital for Children. The Floating Hospital is no longer floating, but is part of the Tufts-New England Medical Center located on Washington Street, just between Chinatown and the Theater District.

I love the bear. I walk by it all the time, but I don't know why they moved it. It should have stayed where it was.

Its nice they saved the bear and put it in a place where kids can get a kick out of it.

Glad they've found a home for this whimsical fellow. too bad the store didn't make it - it is a wonderful place even for adults.
