Once Upon A Child

What we are all about. 

Each Once Upon A Child location is individually owned and operated by moms and dads like you, who understand money doesn’t grow on trees. Once Upon A Child Waco had their grand opening in May of 2016. 

Our customers want quality children’s clothing and we’re excited that we can offer discounts up to 70% off of original retail prices. We strive to offer a fun and convenient way to sell your gently used items. Whether you’re buying or selling, we would love to help you find what you’re looking for. We offer payment on-the-spot for items we select that meet current style, safety and condition standards. We maintain high merchandise standards by thoroughly inspecting all toys and equipment for any safety recalls. We operate on a first-come/first-served basis. We'll quote you a "wait time" for how long it will take us to process your items. Feel free to stay and shop or return to our store 1 hour prior to close to review your quote.


At Once Upon A Child, safety is our top priority. For this reason, there are some items we are unable to buy, such as car seats and recalled products, which do not meet current Government Safety Standards.
