To my knowledge.  I also think Child's World was the company's (corporate) moniker as well.  However, in NE Ohio there was only Children's Palace.

Probably a former Child World in a shopping plaza where Ann&Hope was in North Dartmouth MA.

Child World moved here from it's original spot in the North Dartmouth Mall. I haven't been in the area for years but remember the Grand Reopening sale since I picked up a ton of Colecovision games for practically pennies

Here's a closer look at the store logo on it. I only remember the store's and company being called Child World, but some of their price stickers read Child World the Children's Palace. This aparantly has a dual name logo.

Wow! Good sighting-- when were you in Cincinnati?  I've never seen that before.  You can see the Drug Emporium logo clearly underneath.

Former Child World, recently Media Play (now vacant) in Columbus, OH. It's on Broad St., right next to a vacant Toys "R" Us. I had never seen one of these before.

The area is a dump, sadly.

Oh how I miss those Childrens Palace stores! Dayton Oh had two of them & Cincinnati had at least four of them. You should have seen them before a remodel...Those doors & windows or the front of that Media play are slightly altered but, the shape is the original. Those buildings looked like a castle with the towers & all. Those have been removed in this picture.  I seem to recall multi color flags flying above on the roof too. A fond piece of my youth. R.I.P. my old dear friend Childrens Palace... Thanks, Dwayne

I didn't see some of the previous posts until I posted my earlier post. I wanted to comment on the Glenway ave Childrens Palace in Cincy. That was one of their bigger stores it was much bigger than the Colerain ave store or Tri County Mall one.  The Toys R Us that is kinda sorta in the same lot was NOT there during Childrens Palaces lifetime. Toys R Us opened in like 1993 after Chlidrens was gone.  It took over a building that had housed two other long gone chains Gold Circle & Hills.  Just to let you Ames fans know directly across the street up on a hillside was the Western Hills Mall a very small place that was once home to Zayre & then became Ames.   Thanks, Dwayne

There was a Child World in Westport, CT. Not sure when it went under, but it was eventually replaced by Toys R Us. I only remember going to the store once when it was a Child World.

There was a Childworld in the CT Milford Post Mall. In the late 70s and all throughout 80s I practically got either a toy or video game there and Milford TRU every Friday night.

My parents also would bring us to Westport Childworld which closed when they filed for bankruptcy in 91. TRU took over the building and just closed this past Jan. My business is 1 mile away from the former Westport TRU. I used to go there at least 3 times a week for the past 3 years. It really sucks they left. Sad thing is they could have stayed if the owner of the building agreed to fix the place. It was literally falling apart and the a/c barely worked. Some summer days it would reach 85 degrees no problem inside. The building is gutted right now (including the floor which is now dirt). Homegoods will be the new tenant. If I had to guess Homegoods is footing the bill. If not they will be paying some HEFTY rent.

There was also a Childworld in Hamden CT in the same Plaza as Jimmies used to occupy (Hamden Plaza). For those unfamiliar with Jimmies it was a sit down seafood resturant. Really good back in the day. I think the original one in Savin Rock is still open. I remember eating there in the mid 90s and the food and service was PUTRID. Back in the 80s when customer service was priority the food and service was excellent. Both, Jimmies and Childworld were in the plaza with the parked cars that were covered with ashpalt. Anyone remember them? I think it was referred to as the "ghost parking lot". My aunt and uncle who lived next door to us at the time in Monroe loved going to Jimmies at least once a month. So my cousin and I would tag along. My uncle would go to the hamden location since there was a Childworld in the same lot. No matter what time you went to eat at Jimmies the wait would be 45mins to an hour. So we would march on over to childworld and load up on star wars figures. Ah those were the times.....

I just wish I had photos from those good ole days!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I remember going to most of the southwestern Connecticut Childworlds as a kid. There was one in East Haven that is now a TJ Maxx, that unfortunately I never got to visit just drive by from the highway. I went to the Hamden one only a few times and remember climbing on the buried cars in the Ghost Parking Lot, it's a shame they took them out. Waterbury closed years before the whole chain went under. Milford and Westport were the two I visited the most, even worked in the Westport one doing seasonal stock work right out of high school. Out of all the dead retail chains from my childhood, I'd have to say I miss Childworld most of all.

In the background of this picture, you can see the West Mifflin, PA Children's Palace.  This photo is from 1978, and came from a press kit about Century III Mall opening in 79.  This store is now divided between Petco and Matress Discounters.
