I've been coming here for years to shop for clothing and have always found them to have good value for your money. With the military discount it's a bonus. Seriously, this place offers a lot of bang for your buck.

We stopped in here when I was 9 mos. pregnant to see what they had since we still needed some items. The prices are way too high for the condition. We looked at a few strollers that had dirty seats, missing buckles, crooked wheels and they still had the nerve to tag them at approx. $20 less than new! The highchairs were ALL nasty. Every single one had food stuck on it and major stains on the fabric. After that we decided to just leave, realizing that everything else would probably be in the same disgusting condition. Obviously we left empty handed and haven't been back since, nor have we suggested anyone else visit this place.

Went there with a friend found a great wagon that I just wanted to clear with my husband. I asked if they would hold the item for me. The lady said yes but only for 2 hours. I agreed and wrote my name and number done and watched as the gal tagged the item for me. I returned to purchase the item a mere 45 mins later. Still having 1 hour and 15 mins left of our agreed hold time. As I walked up to the store a family was wheeling the wagon out! After I inquired about it the manager only acknowledge that someone had sold it. Never even got an apology. They are so rude! Will never shop there again.

This place is awful! I mostly just sell there but everytime I go there they all of a sudden have new selling rules! I have checked their website and of course it doesnt state the "rules". In the past they have told me they only buy up to 25 buys a day so call ahead because they don't take appointments. I was told they don't buy on Sunday's after walking in there with about 4 bags, now as of last week they don't buy after 10:30a.m. when they open at 10:00!!!!! My husband got there at 10:40 and they turned him away! They are rude, unprofessional and yes, dirty! I make sure the things i plan to sell are gently used and clean. And I only do that becuase I wouldn't buy anything dirty, so my way of thinking is only sell something you would buy!!!! I even try to keep it organized by size to make it easier for them to sort and faster! I have gone in there looking for items and would not buy because they were dirty or missing parts... and they are just rude in that store. They are close to my house but I will never go there again!!! I will find somewhere else that doesnt' make up a new policy just because........ They are the worst!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

They just randomly come up with price for items that don't have price on it. I was told their wicker set was $85 so when I go to pick up the item they tell me it's $90 because i had a $5 coupon.
I will not shop there anymore and it's not about $5 difference...it's about dishonesty and not willing to sell the item at the price I was told.

I have used Once Upon a Child off and on for the past three years. I find buying there is far better than selling. The offer insultingly low prices for most things. They say they offer 50-60% of resale price but really they only offer about 40-50% at best.
Today, I called to inquire about a Sit N Stand stroller. The girl said they had one for $90. I had a tandem that they'd priced at worth $40 at a previous trip that I was willing to sell today.
I asked the girl if I brought in my stroller could it go towards the price. She said yes. So $90-$40=$50. Then she told me I would get 10% off for selling that day. $50 - 10% off =$45. We did the math together and agreed that I would come in.
After waiting 45 mins for them to look at my stroller, they rang me up. I was concerned b/c it seemed like the price was really high with tax. After I signed the receipt, I got the itemized one. They sold me the stroller at $95 not $90!
When I pointed this out, the girl said that she told me $95 and that they were planning to sell it at over $100 (proves they mark up the price). She refused to fix the difference even after I reminded her that we did the math together on the phone. She told me I could just return it!
Buy there maybe...sell there NEVER!

Pros: Cheap stuff to buy

Cons: Rip off when selling to them

This is my favorite store!! I feel like a kid in a candy store there. I am a foster parent, so I never know what age and gender of the children I will care for, so I have to stock up on a whole new wardrobe after I get a new child. I always get clothes for a fraction of the price of other stores. I have bought lots of clothes and they are all sooo cute and stylish most were fancy brand names and still had tags on. My friends look forward to seeing what the babies will be wearing next. Sure you have to pick through some clothes, but I always find at least a few treasures and loads of useful items. Most outfits are only a few dollars - you can't do that at Walmart!! I'd have to agree that the bumbo's (I got mine there for $25 which was very well spent) and the bigger items like swings aren't as drastically marked down, but they are still cheaper.My tip to other customers is to come alone (without kids) if you can and just look at it as a treasure hunt, enjoy the challenge, also come educated on the bigger ticket items, so you can decide whether it is worth it to you to pay less for used or get it new. One plus for the used items is that they are already assembled, that make it work the trade off for me!! Another tip is to check the bargain areas for amazing deals on out of season clothes.(Do we really have seasons here?!)The store also offers a discount to foster parents. I highly recommend this store to other parents.

Once Upon A Child is my favorite childrens store. I look for one in every state I live in so far I have been to the one in Monrovile PA Indianapolis IN and Oceanside CA. and I have to say the Oceanside store out of the three was the worst. The quality of the items are not what i am used to. The way they have there store set up looks like somebodies basement! The only good thing about it is the military discount!!! Clothes are dirty and not worth the price that they are charging

First of all, I rated it 1 star cause I had to with this rating system.
I called this store this am to be sure they were accepting childrens clothes so I don't waste a trip (it takes an hour for me to get there). The girl informed me they were, but not onsies and pj's and to keep things in sets. I thanked her, she thanked me and we hung up. It took me 1.5 hours to get there with two young kids in 100 degree heat. I arrived 2 hours after I talked to her and a rude young boy told me that they reached their 25 person quota. I explained I had driven far and was never told of this quota when I called and said (with exhaustion as the idea of a wasted trip loomed) "please don't tell me this." The boy said "I am telling you this." I said "excuse me" clearly agitated. He said "why you given me attitude." I asked for the Manager. He pointed 5 feet away and said "she's right there." I couldn't believe the "Manager" heard this and did nothing. She didn't even look up from folding clothes. She claimed she's the one that talked to me and told me to be there by noon. I didn't recognize her voice and said she hadn't talked to me. She said that it must have been the other girl all while folding clothes and never looking at me. The girl came over and said she had told me that on the phone. I told her that I would never have driven all this way to possibly be turned away. She all but called me a liar. The "manager" still folding clothes did/said nothing. While there another woman came in to claim her $$ from her items she brought. She said "i'm number 13 and was told to come back in 2 hours." The rude little boy behind the counter told her they weren't ready and she'd have to come back. She was clearly annoyed and said "well I guess I have to come back." I guess this rude customer service is the norm for this place...unless, of course, you're spending money there. Although it was pretty dirty looking so if you do buy things I would wash them in some hot water first. So I asked the "manager:" for the franchise owners contact info and she, with a flick of her wrist, said to the girl "oh take her items." I said "no way am I leaving my things here." They must have thought I was an idiot. Like I would get a fair value for my items after this nonsense. I left and said I would certainly be writing a review and a letter to the franchise owner (i have now done both). The "manager" who had finally stopped folding her clothes said "why?" Hah! I told her because of the crappy customer service I've received and because this girl is lying and she knows it. I looked at the girl and she was behind the counter smirking. I couldn't believe this treatment. So to all of you....if you're buying clothes wash em good cause it's disgusting in there and if you're selling.....well...good luck with that. Use eBay.

Every time items aren't cleaned AT ALL! I mean the potty has poop and pee all over it and its priced $5.00 less then brand new a few stores away!

I worked for a children's re sale store and they don't do anything here but try and turn a buck and rip people off!

I have found 1 useful thing a pair of snow boats that were so nasty I washed them in the washing machine with a little Lysol. *yes it was that gross!*

Also the owner is a mean two faced lady. She doesn't follow once upon a child's franchise rules and regulations either, but they don't care they got her money!

The older Hispanic lady is the owner and I believe the younger Hispanic girl is her daughter they always come in late together! I mean WTF they are never open on time they don't say sorry when I have been waiting for 15 mins because they over slept (they didn't shower either.)

Need I say more?

Try other stores like the children's orchard or the outlets this place sells trash and sometimes a rare gem among the trash they call great items! *HAHA*

10 % military discount but they are rude about it and you have to be pushy about it!

Also I am not falling for the people who work their & their reviews that seem positive on here, seriously that is lame!

This store is GREAT, im a mother of 4 they are 3mnths 2yrs 4yrs and 7yrs. Kids grow so fast especially in their baby-toddler yrs OUAC is so cheap and they have so much to choose from. They have great customer service, if i have all my kids w/ me and i need help bringing my bags out they are right there to help me.They also buy your items from you. They only buy seasonal and you only get a small percentage of the selling price but its more then you'd get from a garage sell and alot less work for you.They are picky too but its only to make the inventory better quality. You should give them a call. 760-722-7896 they are right by chuck-e-cheese and mervyns and toys'r'us.I LOVE this store and i plan on going there for years to come. Check it out for yourself. : )

The prices on kids clothing here is really good compared to bigger retailers. Also, they have really good prices on furniture and equipment: cribs, strollers, etc. As mentioned in some the reviews below, they also buy gently used items but they have to be in very good to near new shape (as the items they buy go directly to the racks). As a father with three growing kids I have bought a ton of clothing here and I think this place is awesome! Definitely come check this place out if you want to save a buck.

I am a marine wife with two kids and if you are in that situation you will know about our money issues! Well of course having kids you have to buy things for them , so i went in there looking for a few Paticular items! I needed a play mat that the baby lays on and plays and a bumbo seat, I found the play mat for 12.00 and i bought that, I didnt relize how dirty it really was I had to do some extra washing not just the lightly used cleaning. Then I went to look at a Bumboo seat or what ever those things are called to help the baby sit up and play and eat or whatever, I found a couple and the NEW ones were 35.99 and the USED ones were 30.00! Well wal mart sells them at 30.00 FOR IT NOT BEING A RESALE STORE they are cheeper! THEN... Being a shopaholic i bought my two year old that laughing elmo doll, it was in the box gently used looking and i asked the sales person does this work ok? He told me yea and there are batteries in everything so taking his word for it i bought it! And GUESS what? IT DIDNT HAVE BATTERIES AND EVEN WHEN IT DID IT DIDNT WORK! I am so unsatisfied with this store i will never go back! They are over priced with everything that they sell really you mineas well go and get something brand new and literally pay the extra 5 dollars! And some things you can even get cheeper! So before you shop at this store ask your self if you are looking for value and quality even in used products? Then dont go here you are better off going to PEDLETONYARDSALES.com! Get things there and at yard sale!

He told me yea and there are batteries in everything so taking his word for it i bought it! And GUESS what? IT DIDNT HAVE BATTERIES AND EVEN WHEN IT DID IT DIDNT WORK! I am so unsatisfied with this store i will never go back! They are over priced with everything that they sell really you mineas well go and get something brand new and literally pay the extra 5 dollars! And some things you can even get cheeper! So before you shop at this store ask your self if you are looking for value and quality even in used products? Then dont go here you are better off going to PEDLETONYARDSALES.com! Get things there and at yard sale!

THIS STORE IS THE BEST! YOU FIND THE BEST DEALS ON GENTLY USED BABY GEAR AND ALSO GREAT STUFF FOR KIDS. THEY HAVE CLOTHES RANGING FROM NEWBORN SIZES TO AGE 8. THEY HAVE LOTS OF TOYS, CRIBS, SWINGS, BABY CARRIERS, BOUNCERS, HIGH CHAIRS, BATH TUBS, ETC. THIS STORE MAY BE TINY BUT IT IS OVER FLOWING WITH AWESOME PREVIOUSLY LOVED FINDS. THE CUSTOMER SERVICE IS GREAT AND FRIENDLY I LOVE THIS STORE. I'VE SOLD TO THEM AS WELL AND OBVIOUSLY YOU ARE NOT GOING TO GET WHAT YOU PAID ON YOUR ITEMS THAT IS HOW THEY CAN TURN AROUND AND GIVE OTHER PPL SUCH GREAT DEALS AND NOT CHARGE AN ARM AND A LEG FOR PREVIOUSLY USED THINGS.

PROS: IF YOU NEED IT THEY HAVE IT.
CONS: THEY ARE DUE FOR A BIGGER SHOP:-)

I have gotten a few things for my boys here. They have lots to choose from. Strollers, baby carriers (even baby Bjorns) ultra saucers, bouncers, you name it. I did find that I had to pick through a bunch of clothes to find stuff that I liked. But they did have a large shoe section!

take them here! (the clothes that is! :-) )
You can get store credit or cash for gently used clothing and toys/kid stuff. Trade in the stuff that doesn't fit for ones that do! Everything is in awesome condition and the prices are perfect too....what more can you ask? :-)

As far as selection goes they do have a lot of things. But I went there as the seller meaning I wanted to sell some of my things to them. They are very picky, which I understand and dont pay much for what they do want. For example, I went there at the beginning of summer and yes lots of my items were from fall/winter but anyway, I brought four garbage size bags full of clothes and out of all of that they only took five things. And for those five things they only offered me about $8.00. So, in my case I made much more money selling them in a garage sale or ebay.

PROS: Lots to choose from if you are going there to buy
CONS: They dont offer much for your goods.

I enjoy coming here to look for new items for my daughter. They have a great selection of new or gently used clothing, some even still have the tags on them. They have a ton of toys as well. The prices are great!

I get 90% of my kids cloths from this store I usually pay about $3.00 per outfit for name brands, I love this store, I have neever sold to them so I dont how they do on selling but she only takes great cloths because that is all I have seen in her store. She also gives military discounts!! There is a place for the kids to play while you shop.

PROS: Easy to find cloths in different sizes
CONS: kind of small location
