Target has teamed up with the legendary toy store FAO Schwarz on a holiday toy collection.

The Minneapolis-based retailer announced the exclusive 70-piece FAO Schwarz toy collection on Thursday, noting the toys will be available "later this month" at Target stores, online and at the FAO Schwarz store in New York City. 

Many of the toys in the line will be under $20, Target says. And you can check the toys out in this interactive boutique

“This year’s exclusive FAO Schwarz collection and our largest Bullseye’s Top Toys list ever provides something new and exciting for kids of all ages, all at an incredible value,” Christina Hennington, Target's executive vice president and chief merchandising officer, said in a statement. 

“We also recognize our guests have a lot to think about this holiday season, and we hope they find comfort in the safe, easy experiences we’ve created, whether shopping in our stores or using one of our convenient fulfillment options," Hennington added.

Target's fall lineup of toys and games includes more than 600 items that are only available at Target and include toys from brands like Disney, LEGO, L.O.L., Barbie, Surprise! and more.

Target also released its annual Bullseye's Top Toys list for 2020, which is the largest ever at 50 of the "most anticipated toys" of the year, the retailer says.
