The magazine was founded and edited by Isabella Bird, a renowned travel writer and philanthropist. Little Folks had a strong emphasis on education, and featured articles on science, history, and nature, as well as stories designed to encourage good behavior and moral values.

One of the most popular features of Little Folks was the "Letter-Box," in which readers could submit letters, stories, and illustrations for publication. The magazine also featured contributions from well-known authors of the time, such as Rudyard Kipling and Lewis Carroll.

Little Folks was also recognized for the quality of its illustrations and design. The magazine featured illustrations by notable artists, such as Kate Greenaway and Walter Crane. It was also one of the first children's magazines to use color printing, making its pages visually appealing to young readers.

Despite its success, Little Folks struggled financially during its later years, and was eventually forced to merge with another publication, The Children's Newspaper. Little Folks ceased publication in 1933.

Today, Little Folks is remembered as an important part of British literary history, and its influence can be seen in the many children's magazines and publications that followed in its wake.{{Categories}}
