Children at play destroy expensive clothing at an even faster rate than the intramural rugby leagues that department-store mannequins compete in at night. Keep children outfitted affordably with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of gently used children’s clothes, toys, and accessories from Once Upon a Child in Richmond Hill.
At the Richmond Hill location of Once Upon a Child, parents and their offspring can explore racks and shelves full of gently used brand-name clothing, footwear, toys, and costumes. Collect fashionable apparel for kids and infants ($1.50–$12) from brands such as Gymboree, The Children's Place, and Gap, or grab a pair of boots to prepare tiny feet to trudge through snow or the waist-deep birthday cakes that occasionally fall around the Great Lakes. Toys range from outdoor playhouses to indoor kitchen sets, frequently featuring brands including Fisher-Price, Playskool, and Disney. A selection of costumes is currently available for those who prefer to celebrate Halloween only once a year.
Once Upon a Child’s staff avoids common hand-me-down dilemmas by inspecting each item for quality and for cootie-carrying dust mites, ensuring that no unsafe or unappealing clothing reaches the shelves.
