I saw this cart 2 years ago when I moved to this property. I live in a 7 story low-rise building in Manchester.
There are 2 elevators and a lot of seniors that live here too. Shopping carts come and go from supermarkets and other retailers too.
There is a carriage corral off the carport near the maintenance office for the collection of them. I was pretty excited when the child world cart made an appearance again!! :bigsmile:

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.

Hello to everyone here at the forum...first-time poster.  :)

I can firmly say there was a location also in Brockton, MA at the Westgate Mall.  It was an anchor store, along with Bradlees and Jordan Marsh prior to closing.  Now, the mall has closed-off that anchor store lot and the end of this wing contains the mall security and Marshalls (in a relocated position from where it was).

80stees.com is selling pretty cool Children's Palace shirts for 13.99
http://www.80stees.com/products/Childrens-Palace-Shirt.asp

(I kind of wish they said Child World instead since that was the name I grew up with here in the Boston area, but it's cool none the less)

this store wetn out in 1994 i believe there was one in yonkers that clsoed around that time

Actually it was in Scarsdale, on Central Park Ave. just North of Ardsley Rd.  Next to Scarsdale Ford, in the strip mall that still has Pizza & Brew.  One of my favorite toy stores as kid, I think it closed well before the '90's.

Children's Palace was one of the two original anchors of the Southtowne Crossing Shopping Center in Southgate, Michigan when it opened in 1986 (the other was Builder's Square). It closed with the chain in 1992 and was a Best Buy from 1993 to 2006, when it moved to the former food court at Southland Center a few miles away. The entire shopping center has been demolished for a Walmart.

Did Child World/Children's Palace filed for bankruptcy then went out of business because of Toys "R" Us?

I blame Toys "R" Us for the demise of Child World/Children's Palace.

There was a Child World on John Fitch Highway in Fitchburg, Massachusetts, it's now a cinema called, get this, Cinema World. It seemed Cinema World's owners renovated the hell out of the interior, as there's not a single trace of a Child World left inside.

The old Children's Palace in Sandusky, OH, was once an OfficeMax, then it was an interior design store, and is now a Planet Fitness. The rounded arches around the windows/entrance are now black gears for the PF insignia. It's actually a creative paintjob.

As the interior place, closed and prior to PF renovations:

Looks like they went overboard with the reuse of the first round arch for the entrance to the garage!

Let's just say most US states are ground zero for Child World/Children's Palace conversions.

The places that once housed Peter Panda have been turned into EVERYTHING, from former competitor Toys "R" Us to schools to auto repair shops to movie theaters.

This was the former Child World in the Pine Tree Shopping Center in Portland, ME. In later years the old castle decor was stripped away. When Mardens moved to the former Walmart in Scarborough it was subdivided between Dollar Tree and Chapter 11 Furniture.
