Once Upon A Child is the nation's leading buyer and seller of name brand, new and gently used kids stuff. 


Kids look so great in stylish outfits, but who wants to pay high-end prices when clothes are outgrown so quickly? Once Upon a Child offers the perfect solution: the latest in new and gently used brand name clothes, toys, books, equipment, and furniture ... just right for fast-growing babies, toddlers, and youths.

We buy items on a first come / first serve basis. We are not a consignment shop. We pay on-the-spot for what items we can accept. We concentrate on safety ... by not buying or selling items that have been recalled.

There are over 250 franchised stores nationwide. Come in and check out our incredible selection. You'll discover why customers tell us they wish they had discovered Once Upon A Child years ago!

We buy all seasons... all the time!  Offering you cash on the spot, no appointment necessary!  We now accept your items you wish to sell to us during all ours of operation.  Check out the How it Works and Cash for Kids Stuff for more information.
