Popular toy store that was scattered throughout New England and the Mid Atlantic states. Prices were very low and the stores were bright and well lit. They also sold baby furniture, bicycles and later video games systems. Most if not all underwent a series of moving or remodeling in the 80's. The newer buildings had a castle like facade, a warehouse type interior and a mascot "Peter Panda" was added to their commercials. Went out of business in the 90's. I still don't see why this happened. Toys R Us was much more expensive, the Child World stores were in prime locations and the big box stores like Wal-Mart had yet to enter the scene.

Locations I know

East Providence RI--relocated to Seekonk Mass in 1984-85. Building was vacant for about a decade then Pep Boys moved in and heavily altered the inside and out.

Seekonk Mass--located at the end of the Seekonk Square shopping plaza. Closed in 1991-92 and was replaced by a HomeLife store. Facade was changed from castle look to a plain white front

Cranston RI--left the Garden City plaza, moved up Route 2 next door to Zayre(now a Building 19) closed in 1992 and was replaced by Syms. The castle turrets are still visible

Woonsocket RI--had the globe logo and the plain brick front. Closed in 1992 and was vacant until being demolished for a Lowe's.

North Dartmouth Mass--I know there was one in the North Dartmouth Mall that closed in the late 80's. I do not know what replaced it.

I also believe the headquarters was in Avon Mass.

North Dartmouth Mass--I know there was one in the North Dartmouth Mall that closed in the late 80's. I do not know what replaced it.

I also believe the headquarters was in Avon Mass.

CFO Fashions replaced the one in North DArtmouth. I was there in 2003 and you could see the castle look!!!!!!! IT opeend 1971. CHILD WORLD WENT BANKRUPT. THAT IS WHY IT CLOSEd. The last time I went to one In salem nh, it was in April 1992, and it was incredibly junky. By the time child world closed, their locations were not in as prime spots.

I know there was one in Saugus that is now Bed bath and beyond, in salem new hampshire, in the rockignham mall and that store is now Christmas tree shops, in nashua outside hte nashua mall plaza and that plaza was demolished into home depot, chelmsford mall in mass, fitchburg in the john fitch plaza that is now the cinema, shrewsbury that is now micheals, springfield mass and the mall it was in became lowe's, west springfield mass in west century plaza, enfield connecticut and it is now media play, medford mass and it is now toys r us, quincy mass, framingham near shoppers world and natick had one in the sherwood plaza until it relocated near shoppers world, outside hanvoer mall, in hyannis in a location that is now TOys r us, westport connecticut that is now Toys r us, one in East haven connecticut that is now Home goods or a relocated TJ maxx ,one in the milford connecticut post mall, one in hamden, one in new london, danvers mass outside liberty tree mall and that is now Compusa, a few around buffalo like in clarence and cheektowaga and in niagara falls that is now a Toys r us, some around ohio and chicago.  

there was one in portland in the pine tree shopping center.

the chain went out in summer 1992. They closed some in spring 1992 and that was when they filed for bankruptcy and started going down in 1985. most of their stores were in the 30000s of square feet.

Here is a picture of the one in portland maine in the pine tree shopping center. it is now mardens.

50.  Akron Beacon Journal (OH) - July 11, 1992

CHILDREN'S PALACE TO SHUT ITS DOORS UNABLE TO NEGOTIATE AN AGREEMENT WITH LIONEL, TOY STORE CHAIN WILL CLOSE DOWN ITS 71 STORES  
  The 17 remaining Children's Palace stores in Ohio will soon close because the chain's parent company, Child World Inc., has been unable to strike a merger with another toy store chain.But discussions with Lionel Corp. have not been broken off, a Child World spokesman said. He stressed that the Canton, Mass., company simply decided to proceed with closing its stores because of uncertainty with the situation.Child World, which filed for bankruptcy...

Children's palace had 2 akron-canton ohio stores. it seems they were the major toy retail place and got there well before toys r us. newslibrary articles for the akron paper said that Toys r us did not come until late 1986. so there was 17 stores in ohio. They had closed 54 stores in spring 1992. When I tried to go to the one in portland maine in june 1992, I was told that they closed months before.

Child world had children's palace stores here http://www.highbeam.com/library/doc0.asp?DOCID=1G1:11566263&num=1&ctrlInfo=Round18%3AMode18c%3ASR%3AResult&ao=&FreePremium=BOTH
says Colorado Has New Toy King

Child World's five Children's Palace Colorado stores closed September 15 following store-wide liquidation sales. The move is seen by local industry observers as the result of an aggressive Toys "R" Us stance since the Paramus, New Jersey-based successful toy retailer entered the Denver market in June, 1990.

A Toys "R" Us spokesman told Children's Business that company executives are so bearish on Colorado they are exploring the possibility of opening a Kids "R" Us retail clothing division store here. Toys "R" Us stores are in Boulder, Aurora, ...

  The four Children's Palace toy stores in Greater Cincinnati will close following a $5.5 million liquidation sale, putting about 120 employees out of business. These stores, along with 67 across the country are closing after parent company, Child World Inc. failed to find a buyer to pull it out of Chapter 11 bankruptcy. In addition to Western Hills, Children's Palace has stores in Colerain, Florence and Springdale. ...

and says 21.  Columbus Dispatch, The (OH) - July 23, 1992

That pic is of the Children's Palace in the Rolling Acres neighborhood of Akron, OH.  That Marc's shut down a few years ago, and that entire strip is like the Bosnia of retail.  I should know.  Wink
