If you've ever wanted to stay at a toy store, FAO Schwarz in New York City wants to make those dreams come true.

According to Airbnb, on Dec. 21, a family of four from the same NYC household can spend the night in the iconic toy store for one-night-only.

The lucky family will have free rein of the two-story, 20,000-square-foot store, including a private tour and a real FAO Schwarz toy soldier.

The family will also enjoy a shopping spree courtesy of Airbnb, playing in the theater of FAO Schwarz, a feast amidst FAO Schweetz, a Build-A-Bear workshop session, building a remote-controlled car, and a science experiment guided by an FAO Schwarz professor.

The cost to stay costs $25, plus taxes and fees. When it's time for sleep, the family can sleep in a real-life sleigh bed or bunk beds with a built-in slide.

The family will also get a music lesson on the store's iconic Giant Dance On Piano, made famous in Tom Hanks' 1988 movie "Big."

Booking opens at 11 a.m. CT on Dec. 15, Airbnb said.
