My mom and I have been shopping at Totally Kidz for about 3-4 years now and I have yet to find a kids second hand store with nicer equipment and huge selection of gently used clothes in just about every size available. I don't understand how anyone can possibly compare Once Upon a Child to Totally Kidz (I know the owner did, but I'm talking about the daycare provider's comment...) because Once Upon a Child is a huge corporation...Totally Kidz is a small-town business. Cindy needs to make a living too and I feel her prices are very fair. I have always been offered decent prices for my stuff when I bring it in, but thats because all of the stuff I've ever brought in is barely used and in good condition. If you're looking for brand new clothes (though several times I've found cute clothes here with the tags still on, and she's selling them for a good price) and toys, then go to Target or wherever else and spend all your money there. I have nothing negative to say about this business! Prices are great, always good finds, customer service is great as well! Love shopping here!

I have been buying and selling with Totally Kidz for about 4 years now and I have always had very good experiences. Cindy is and has always been up front and honest with me. She has always given me decent prices for my items and made it easy for me to "unload" instead of going through all of the work of setting up for a garage sale only to be left with most of the items when the garage sale is over. I find that her store is quite neat and very organized and her personal toy collection along the walls makes for great conversation. I think that if someone wants to pay over $3.00/gal for gas to drive to St Cloud to try to save a buck then they should by all means, but please keep in mind that Totally Kidz is part of "our" community and we should try to support "our" community before giving our money elsewhere. I intend to continue to support Totally Kidz and thank Cindy for her hard work and dedication to the children in our community.

I am a mother of 7 and I have been bringing in things and buying things from this store since it opened, the owner is always very helpful if you let her know what you are looking for and will even keep an eye open for you if you let her know, I always get a fair price for what I am bringing in and when I buy things I feel that the things that I purchased are at a good price, example I am looking for a bundle me by jj cole, she had one she sold for $12 of 15, right in there and they are $49.95 new on line and at tumble roos right here in brainerd, well I can't go to St. CLoud or any where else with those prices and save. I shop at other stores as well and I can say for certain that her prices are well with in reason and the place is always clean and friendly.

I have been into Totally Kidz and I would disagree with the last writer. First off how much could you be saving by driving to Once upon a child? I think her prices are right in line and justified. She is buying equipment from customers and would YOU really consider selling it for next to nothing just so she could sell it cheap? No you wouldn't, you want the most out of your equipement and toys because I am sure you paid dearly for them. If I can save 50% or more rather than buying it new I will.

I have been in this store numerous times, and I have to agree with the other review, and say that I too am ALWAYS disgusted by the prices. I have bought a few things from the store, but only because I couldn't find them at the other couple of used children's stores in town, and since I own a home daycare there are certain things that are a necessity and sometimes I need to pick something up fast. A comparison was made by the owner of the store, to Once Upon a Child's prices, but I have to disagree. Once, I even overheard a customer ask if the owner would be willing to lower the price on some sort of infant equipment or toy, and she was told no. I lived in St. Cloud for over 6 years, and was a regular shopper at the Once Upon a Child store there. I actually still go back just to shop there, because most of the time I can find toys and equipment for sometimes close to HALF the price of a lot of the equipment that I have priced at Totally Kidz. I have also compared clothing prices and I think it's pretty accurate to say that those prices are similar, but as far as I am concerned, I am a lot better off driving all the way to St. Cloud, DESPITE the high gas prices when I need to purchase equipment and toys for my daycare. I have literally found myself wondering if the owner is more of a collector of baby and children's items more than they are someone who wants to make a profiit from their business?I gave the store 3 stars, because although I feel it is grossly overpriced on the majority of the used items there, you are still able to save a few bucks if you can't afford to buy new.

Elizabeth, I am sorry to hear about your negative experiences at my store. Please when you see something overpriced bring it to my attention. Sometimes things get the wrong price on them. I also carry alot of new products that cost more than the used stuff, but I like to have some new item for people who are looking for gifts. Most of my "generic" items I try to keep the price between $2.50- $5.50. Its hard to know all the prices on the market but I do scan the stores trying my best to be up on things. I mark the name brand a higher because for people to want to sell it I have to pay more. I try to keep things around the 30/70 percentage much like "Once Upon A Child". Baby Gear & larger toys more to the 50% mark up. Stop by again and introduce yourself maybe I can help your experience be better. Have A Great Day! Cindy Kelley, Store owner

PROS: Goes from N/B to sz 14. Lots toys & baby equip. Maternity wear
CONS: No vintage clothes as stated on this sight

I have been to this store on several ocassions, and just have not been happy with any of the experiences. Everytime I go in I see a huge selection of infants and childrens clothing, and other items, but everytime I look at the prices I just get disgusted. I was just in there a couple of days ago, and saw a used generic toddler outfit for $15, that seemed a little high to me. I have brought some items in, and have been offered a very low price in my opinion. I know the business needs to make a profit, it just seems their prices are to high.

PROS: LOTS of infant and childrens items
CONS: High Prices
