1974 Children's Palace Toy Circular


Children's Palace is a well known Toy chain to anyone who grew up on the East Coast, these castle themed stores were eventually bought up by Child World in 1977 and ran until 1992 when they finally closed their doors, leaving many a 70s kid in mourning.

With each page, I fell deeper and deeper into my time traveling fantasy of being able to go back and simply walk around one of these stores.

I remember we used to drive by one these headed from Philly to the Jersey shore. My mom would rebuff my pleas to stop with, "Its just a toy store."

CLEARLY, Mother, it was much more than just a toy store
