Kidworks offers a wide variety of gently used, name brand clothing and toys. I do agree that some of their clothing is higher priced than other consignment stores in the area, but overall they are my favorite shop!

I have been a consignment store shopper in 3 states and 1 province and I agree it is overpriced in general. For Iowa City, however, it's not bad. This is the place I go for kid's stuff because value is measured in more than just cost. Prices for, toys, gear and books are good. But I have found the clothes are often too expensive. (I have also seen examples of some items being sold at the same price as they would be new in the store.) They are the children experts in town. Their main competitor does have cheaper clothes but it is unpleasant to do business with them. They are rude, unhelpful and I will often see unsafe or expired items for sale. I trust Kidworks. They check out the items they are selling for recalls and have higher standards for safety. They are wonderful to do business with as a consignor, as well.

I think the prices there are pretty reasonable and they have a lot more clothes for kids than many consignment shops. Goodwill's prices are higher in some cases. Also they put clothes on sale after they've been there awhile. Books are usually only .50, $1, or $2. I don't know what kind of books the other reviewer was talking about that were $8. I've never seen that. The employees are nice. The male owner/manager is a grump though...my only reservation about the place.

I felt like I hit the jack pot at Kidworks. It was the first time I went there and I purchased large toys...kitchen, vanity, easel, scooter, ironing board and washer for less than $10-15 each. The toys were in good condition. I recommend checking out Kidworks.

I consider myself a consignment expert :) We have lived in 3 states since my boys were born & I have hit dozens of them up for shopping. My review;
They carry clothing, toys, books, video's & accessories. The store is neatly arranged by size, babies to teens. Gender is not perfectly divided, so search both boys & girls. I thought they were a little high priced. Today I found Children's place toddler sized jeans for $6.50-$8.50 each. (they are $11 new at the store) Gap jeans were $8.50 & up. I found shorts for $4 that are $3.50 new at JCPenney (I found that rather funny). Hardcover children's books were $3-$8 each- that's very high in my opinion.
Pros: They seem to only take in very gently used items in good condition. Items are not crammed in , so browsing is easy.
Cons: a bit expensive in my opinion compared to other shops I have been in (however those were in other states) Books & accessories are obnoxiously priced.

Kidworks is a descent place to get used kids clothing and toys. You need to be prepared to dig and go through the clothes. You can find some good bargains here. Face it, kids do not stay in sizes for very long. Why spend the new prices. You might miss this since it is kind of off the beaten path, but do not miss turning onto Stevens Drive to hit this store.

I found two awesome toys for my son that were in great condition and were really cheap. Also I found a potty for him. I think I will be going there a lot more often because they have great things there!
