About Us

Once Upon A Child opened its doors in Minnetonka in September 1993 and we have seen many changes over the years! But one thing has remained the same...we are dedicated to providing a fun and convenient way to buy and sell, new and gently used kids stuff focusing on quality, safety and value!

It is our customers that truly set us apart from other stores. We depend on YOU to bring in gently used inventory for us to purchase and in turn offer amazing value and selection for you the customer to purchase! Our standards are high because that's what our customers demand and deserve!
So come in and discover why customers tell us they wish that they had discovered Once Upon A Child years ago!
