Piano Floor Mats
Those who have seen the movie “Big” may remember the scene where Tom Hanks plays on a giant floor piano. Here is a link to that scene:
This piano, made by Remo Saraceni for FAO Schwarz Piano, is a one of a kind piano. It is estimated to cost over 250,000 dollars to have a big piano such as this.
With this in mind, you probably will not be able to have the piano that was featured in this iconic movie.
However, you can buy a similar floor mat piano for a much more reasonable price.
