Like many of the other reviews, I have found this staff to be more bothered by shoppers. When I had pulled some items then went to put them back they jumped down my back and told me that they had to put them back because there was a specific order to their items and that I would put it back wrong... Like this is a library!

Also, they had a bath seat that was recalled and I took it up to their counter and informed them it had been recalled and they rolled their eyes at me. In a short time, they placed the item back on the shelf. (this was an item the Overland Park store had informed me was on recall.)

the OP store is much more spacious, better selection and much friendlier staff.

They ridicule every item you bring in.. It is a used items store, give me a break. Do not shop here. The items they do have value of are overpriced. They should have gone out of business a long time ago. I do not understand how you can consistently treat the public like this and still be in business.

I have shopped here and exchanged my children's clothes and toys! The staff was very rude and annoyed by my being there. I don't recommend ever shopping or exchanging at this store. I have done so much better selling and buying at garage sales!

Unfriendly staff. They are unorganized, and make you feel like nuisance. When I had a problem, they did not express any sort of sympathetic response. They were irritated by my request for help. They took no ownership for the mistakes they made.
The buy-back offers are low, even on new items, still with tags, and the resell prices on these same items are a 300-400% mark-up.
Go somewhere else. Have a yard-sell. Donate to the needy.

I have shopped here many times. While I like the prices on the clearance and some items, others are far overpriced. Also, I always feel as though I am burdening the staff with questions or if I want to try to resell. The prices offered on reselling are at best okay, but don;t expect to buy near what you sell. Pretty much you have to want to just get rid of the clothes. Overall I would shop clearance at other stores and they would be new. Used furniture is a good price most of the time.

PROS: Good prices on furniture

I like to look through this shop for clothes for my girls. I usually find the cutest clothes for them at really good prices. The staff is friendly and helpful.

This store is amazing. It has helped my family out so much to be able to buy school clothes for our kids without spending a fortune. The clothes are in perfect condition and are all high quality (only brand names!). What a steal!!!

I have shopped with Once Upon a Child for many years now ... I have 5 children and they have all had clothes, toys or other kid items purchased from Once Upon a Child! I have also brought our used items to this store to sell.

This store carries gently used kid items such as clothing, toys, books, strollers, highchairs, shoes, videos/dvd's. There are a few new items as well, but most of the inventory is used. Anyone with kids knows, though, that sometimes the child outgrows an item before it is ever used, so even some "used" pieces are virtually new!

The prices here are great for the budget conscious as well. You can pick up name brand pieces for about what you pay for lower quality items brand new at discount stores. And the best part is that no one but YOU knows it wasn't bought new!

This is THE place to find great kid bargains ... from birth to size 12 for clothes or just about any kid related item you may need!
