    There are some awesome stuff that takes me back. In my neck of the woods it was called, Children's Palace.

    Despite the fact that I grew up in a community with no Child World stores, this flyer pretty much IS my childhood. I'm immensely happy and grateful that you posted it.

    Child's world was Children's palace in Columbus Ohio. Our house had 4 of the 8 toys from the Hagensick's playhouse ad. Did my parents really spend that much money on us? Doubtfully as all our toys came from sears distribution center!!
