We know you want the best for your family: quality, value, and kids stuff that is safe. Once Upon A Child® buys and sells gently used kids clothing, toys and baby gear. Don't miss your opportunity to recycle your children's nearly new items and get paid on the spot! Hear more about us by hopping over to our How It Works or What We Sell sections.

Some of the Stuff We Love:
  1. Safety Gates
  2. Footwear
  3. DVDs and Books
  4. Pack N Plays
  5. Strollers
  6. Exersaucers
  7. Walkers
  8. Pajamas
  9. and More!

All equipment and toys should be clean with all original parts included. We are always more selective when buying Newborn and Infant apparel. We can not buy plush toys or teething rings for sanitation purposes.


Do you want to trade in your gently used toys, clothes, and equipment? You are more than welcome to bring your items in for us to take a look while you shop around! We buy all seasons all the time, open to close, all day everyday. You can even apply your cash credit towards the items you'd like to purchase that day and save on sales tax!



Once Upon a Child® is in Friendswood, TX, next to the Baybrook Mall! Convenient access from the southbound feeder road off I-45, about 1/2 mile before Bay Area Boulevard!
