They had great stuff, but if you wanted to save money and get quality clothing, you would shop their other store: Kidsmart. Kidsmart carried Healthtex, Dolphin, IZOD, Polo, Levis, and other major labels in the 1980's. They usually bought in bulk to pass on the savings, or shipped overstock from LFS to the store as a mark-down. I had a great time workinig for them

I shopped at the one in the Thousand Oaks Mall in the early 80's when I was about 6-9. That's where I got my purple corduroy knickers with the matching top that had pink and purple hearts on it. A drop waist dress in black, red, and white. And a shiny light pink tuxedo shirt with grey polka dots and a bow tie. I wish I'd kept all that stuff. And the TO store had a slide!

I shopped there for my daughter, I loved the cute things they carried! I remember she had some knitted pullover sweaters by Popcicle we bought there, everyone always complimented her on them and wanted to know where i'd bought them. I recall the Izod's and Dittos, all the cool stuff :)

I remember this store vividly I was very young at the time and don't know which mall we shopped at I'm assuming the central city mall in San bernardino I can't confirm this with my mother since she nor my older sister remember this store!! But I loved that place!!

Wow...I remember this place as a kid. Me and my little sister would play on the slide while our parents shopped. The old long beach mall had a store there. Brings back great memories! What ever happened to them anyways? Does anyone have any old pix of the store sign?

I was working in the Del Amo Mall store in Torrance, CA in 1982 when Kristy Swanson and her Mom came in to buy a huge new wardrobe for Kristy. She was very shy and quiet but her Mom said, "Remember her name because she's going to be a big star!" Well, Mom, uh, kinda but not really big!

Sean, I did some research and it looks like your commercial was filmed at Farnsworth Park in LA.
LarreJean - October 19, 2015 - Report this comment
Sean, I apologize, I was mistaken. It was Griffith Park, not Farnsworth Park. I hope this helps you. I noticed while researching that your sister worked with you occasionally. She sounds pretty awesome.

Something clicked in my mind today and I thought of The Little Folk Shop from the 1970's so here I am: mom would take me to the store at Pico & Westwood Blvd in West LA, now the site of the Westside Pavilion. What I recall most about the store is the maze-like climbing structure for us kids that seemed to go throughout the store, with ladders that would lead to fort-like enclosures where kids could pretend and dream. And I think I even recall the changing room "trees" referred to above.

The Little Folks Shop in Lakewood Mall also had a slide. I loved the clothes there. My mom and I would go in there whenever we would go to the mall, sometimes just because I wanted to go on the slide. And my grandmother and I would do a lot of back to school shopping there.

Does anyone remember the name of the pastel overalls sold at the little folks shop. Probably around 1980ish.
