Our mission:

Once Upon A Child will provide a fun and convenient way to buy and sell new and gently used kids stuff focusing on quality, safety and value.



Why shop at Once Upon A Child?

 Kids look great in stylish outfits, but why pay high-end prices when they outgrow their clothes so quickly? Once Upon A Child offers the perfect solution: the latest in new and gently used brand name clothes, toys, books, CDs, DVDs, equipment and furniture…just right for fast-growing babies, toddlers and youth.

Save yourself the hassle of garage sales and online listings by visiting the nation’s leading buyer and seller of new and gently used brand name kids stuff. Simply gather up your gently used kids stuff (including clothes, playards, toddler beds, changing tables, strollers, highchairs, toys...) and bring them to Once Upon A Child. We will pay CA$H on-the-spot for all items accepted. No need to consign and hope for a sale on a later date - we pay you today!
Because we buy new and gently used items from our customers ALL DAY, EVERY DAY, our inventory changes...so stop by and shop often!
