About Your Universal City, TX Once Upon A Child

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. We opened our doors with our 1st Once Upon A Child on July 9, 2009 and have enjoyed it ever since.  We love bringing quality and style to all families at a value.  

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. Unlike consignment stores where you have to wait until your items sell to receive payment.  We strive to maintain high merchandise standards by thoroughly inspecting all toys and equipment for any safety recalls.

Although we have been doing this for years, I still love hearing the stories from all of the wonderful parents, granparents and the children that share my day.  You just never know what you will hear!
