Owner and founder, Samuel P.N. Cook of Uncle Sam’s New York Tours, commissioned the tour as part of an expanding set of shopping tours the company is offering. "When Janet came to me with the idea of a Toy Shopping Tour, I thought back to my childhood days when I eagerly anticipated Christmas and Birthday presents from my grandmother such as LEGO, Star Wars action figures, and so many other great memories from that time in my life."

Uncle Sam's New York is a company specializing in daily historical New York Walking Tours, World Trade Center Tours, shopping tours, pub crawls, nightlife tours, and luxury private tours around New York City.

New York stylist, Janet Racy, who runs the shopping tour division of Uncle Sam's New York Tours, created the Toy Story Tour for the young at heart. "I have always loved children," said Janet Racy, "and I think this tour gives parents a chance to relive the magic of their childhood while also seeing the toys that are the object of their children's desires. It is truly a unique opportunity for parents and children to bond."

The Toy Story Tour gives visitors to Manhattan an exciting fun-filled adventure complete with trivia, entertainment, special events, stops at numerous toy and concept stores (including FAO Schwarz, The LEGO Store, Build-A-Bear Workshop, Eloise at the Plaza, 77 Kids Style Lab and the Disney Store) plus the best candy stores ever. It’s an affordable, rewarding experience for the whole family that will last a lifetime! This tour is sure to be popular around the holiday seasons and during school breaks.
