Once Upon A Child is a nationwide franchise with conceptual roots in the time-honored hand-me-down tradition. Taking into account how quickly babies outgrow buggies and toddlers master Roth IRAs, the stores help parents to keep their kids happily equipped with age-appropriate apparati without breaking the piggy bank. In addition to stocking its shelves with goods and gear from popular kiddie brands such as Gymboree, Gap, Fisher-Price, Graco, Playskool, Abercrombie, Justice, and Polo, Once Upon A Child buys and sells gently used items, not only making deep discounts possible, but also helping to replenish family funds. Pick up tenderly used apparel, sizes Newborn to 18, such as tank tops ($1.50–$3.50), jeans ($5.50–$12), shoes ($1.50–$12), or formal dress wear ($7.50–$12) ideal for kindergarten rap duels. Peruse the store's various hair accessories, or opt for cloth diapers by Fuzzibunz at the Shakopee location (both new stock).
