CHERRY VALLEY, Ill. (WIFR) -- If you're thinking about getting a head start on some holiday shopping, a world famous toy brand is now hitting shelves right here in the stateline.

Bergner’s inside the cherry vale mall is getting into the holiday spirit by celebrating the grand opening for their new FAO Schwarz toy display. The store is stocking its shelves with classic FAO Schwarz toys like the dance mat piano and plush stuffed animals. The first 25 kids at the display received a free toy to celebrate the new line.

"Oh I'm very excited about it. I think it's very unique and offers just a different spin to the toy sections, and it just brings back a lot of nostalgia from year's past,” said Bergner’s store manager, Mitch McFatridge.

FAO Schwarz has been bringing toys to families for over 150 years and now nearly 200 Bon-Ton department stores across the country will have them for sale.
