Target and FAO Schwarz have inked an exclusive multiyear agreement that'll bring toys from the iconic children's store to the merchandise retailer.

The partnership will start in mid-October – just in time for the holiday season, Target announced in a press release.

More than 120 toys from FAO Schwarz will be in Target stores nationwide and on target.com.

"One of the reasons families love shopping at Target is because of our incredible assortment of toys, and that selection is only getting better with our new exclusive agreement with the beloved FAO Schwarz brand," Target’s Executive Vice President and Chief Merchandising Officer Jill Sando said in a statement.

Target stores will carry new toy products from FAO Schwarz, including a four-sided runway fashion show playset, a ride-on train, makeup vanity mirror set, a legacy dance on piano mat and an assortment of plush dolls.

Toy customers will also have an opportunity to get their hands on a "nostalgic" capsule collection to celebrate FAO Schwarz’s 160th anniversary, according to Target.
