Halloween is just around the corner! Ghosts, goblins, and princesses, oh my! Have your kids decided on what they want to be for Halloween? Kid to Kid is here to help so your kids have the best costumes on the block. Here’s why you should shop at Kid to Kid for all their spooky needs!
Costumes are great, but they’re only for one night and maybe your child’s Halloween costume parade at their school. By next year, their costumes will be outgrown and they’ll need another. Kid to Kid is a sustainable and affordable option for costume shopping because instead of spending your money on brand-new expensive costumes, you can shop at Kid to Kid for a fraction of the cost! Plus you can sell last year’s costumes back to us, along with anything else your kids don’t need or have outgrown – for cash!
We buy and sell gently used costumes. That means we have tons of options and you can mix and match your kids’ imaginative costumes in mind. Did we hear ninja princess, superhero bacon, and watermelon cowboys?
Shoes and Coats
Depending on where you live, Halloween can be a bit cold. We have coats and jackets to keep your children warm and shoes to match their costumes. If you want some extra fun, get some light-up shoes to wear outside – they look cool in the dark!
Whatever your child wants to be for Halloween we have all the costumes and gear your child needs to be safe and warm for the spookiest night of the year. Remember to bring your kids’ old stuff into Kid to Kid so you can earn cash or 20% more in-store credit. Make sure you shop at your local Kid to Kid so that they have the coolest costume in the neighborhood!
Toys have been an important part of childhood. While some trends come and go, there are some classic toys that never seem to go out of style, especially at Kid to Kid. Why do certain toys never lose their appeal and what are the benefits of playing with them?
A big reason why classic toys never go out of style is their timeless design. Toys are usually made simple and straightforward in their designs, which allows children to use their imagination and creativity to come up with their own games and stories. Toys such as building blocks, dolls, tricycles, rocking horses, and board games have been around for generations and are still popular today because they allow children to develop their problem-solving, fine motor, and social skillsets which are essential for their growing brains to learn.
Playing with toys in general has a multitude of benefits for a child’s development. For example, building blocks and puzzles can help children develop their spatial awareness, problem-solving skills, and hand-eye coordination. Playing with dolls and stuffed animals can help children develop empathy and social skills by encouraging them to engage in imaginative play, role-playing, and also expands their use of language and self-expression. Board games can help children learn how to take turns, follow rules, and develop their strategic thinking skills such as logic, reasoning, and creative problem-solving.
Enjoyed By All
By playing with classic toys children can develop an appreciation for simplicity and the value of experiences over material things. Also, by reselling them when your children outgrow them, you are not only keeping them out of our landfills and oceans and preserving the environment for generations to come, you’re also ensuring other children can enjoy them as much as your own.
Another reason why classic toys continue to be popular is their ability to provide endless entertainment. Unlike some modern toys, classic toys don’t require batteries or electronics, which means they don’t run out of power or become outdated. Classic toys are typically made with materials such as heavy durable plastics, wood, metal, or quality fabrics such as cotton or linen. At Kid to Kid, we buy and sell used toys, baby gear, and sports gear, so there is sure to be something that will pique your child’s interest and you have the great benefit of knowing it won’t cost you a whole lot of money. Toys can be enjoyed by children of all ages, and parents can feel confident that they are providing their children with safe and durable toys that will last for years to come.
Classic toys never go out of style because of their timeless design, endless possibilities for entertainment, and developmental benefits. Toys such as building blocks, dolls, rocking horses, and board games have been enjoyed by generations of children and will endure the test of time. By encouraging children to play with classic toys, parents can help their children develop important skills and create lasting memories.

Books are an important part of a kid’s life. Studies have shown reading increases your child’s use of language and cognitive development. Buying books can sometimes really add up especially when you want a home library collection just for them. At Kid to Kid, building your kids’ library is convenient and you can stay within your budget. Here are tips to build their library.
Think of the age group
While reading to a child or infant at any age is beneficial, make sure the book seems right for their age group. Many books for infants and toddlers are made to be durable with either fabric or stiff cardboard and are relatively short and simple. Chapter and story books are for more advanced readers, with parents reading aloud or older children by themselves.
Have a variety of book genres
Whether it’s sharing, friendship, colors, math, or fairy tales, having a variety of books will broaden their minds and keep them interested. Studies show that the more variety of types of books, the more your kids will develop a greater vocabulary and positively experience the world around them without having to leave the comfort of home.
Have them help!
Involve them in the process. Take them to your local Kid to Kid and let them pick the books they’re interested in, it will keep their love of reading strong and encourage them to pursue their interests and the topics they may be curious about. Also, listening to bedtime stories read aloud is always a favorite pass time among children, and letting them help pick the stories will make bedtime a fun experience.
Sell books to us
At Kid to Kid, we buy gently used books that your child no longer reads and you can earn cash for new ones. Also, stop by often to see what books we have in stock so your kids’ library can grow!

Baby strollers as everyone knows, are quintessential items for parents with young children. They provide a safe and comfortable way to transport infants and toddlers while on the go. There are so many different types and styles of baby strollers available on the market, each with its own features and benefits. So where to begin and what should you buy?
Kid to Kid is here to help give you a deep dive into strollers and to give you all the info you need to choose the right stroller for your little ones. Plus we have some tips and tricks so you can find a quality stroller for a fair price.
Here are some of the most common types of baby strollers:
These are the most common type available, and are suitable for all ages, from newborns to toddlers. They usually have a wide range of features, such as adjustable seats, collapsible for easy storage space, canopies, trays, and storage compartments.
These are lightweight and easy to maneuver, making them a good option for travel or quick trips around town. Most are extremely simple in design, and some come with an umbrella cover to keep out the sun and rain. They are also the easiest to store because of their simple shape. These strollers are typically less expensive than full-sized ones and are best for older babies and toddlers.
These strollers have large, air-filled tires and are designed for parents who want to be active and love to jog or run with their babies. They are meant for outdoor use and rough terrain. These kinds are more aerodynamic for speed and have three wheels instead of the usual four for greater maneuverability. They provide a smooth ride and are suitable for babies six months and up.
These strollers are designed for parents of twins or two children, but some come as triple and even quad! They can be configured in various ways to accommodate different needs. You can even in some models have children of two different ages or sizes in their proper seats. They come in many different styles, including side-by-side, front and back, and cart style.
These strollers come with a detachable infant car seat that can be used in the car and snapped straight onto the stroller frame. This makes it easier to transfer your baby from the car to the stroller without ever waking them up. Many models grow with your child to accommodate their sizes as they grow.
Keep in mind that shopping for a baby stroller, there are several factors to consider, such as your budget, lifestyle, and the age and size of your child. It’s important to choose a stroller that is not only safe, comfortable, and convenient for both you and your child, but also fits your lifestyle. Look for strollers that meet safety standards, have adjustable features, and fit your needs and preferences. There’s nothing wrong with having a few different kinds of strollers in your home for use depending on where you’re going and what activities you’re doing that day.
At Kid to Kid, we buy and sell gently used strollers and baby gear. We also inspect all the gear we buy and make every effort to ensure what you are buying is the safest and highest quality. When your child outgrows their stroller you can then sell it to us and earn cash for the things they need.
So remember, baby strollers are an important investment for parents with young children. With so many different types and styles available, there is a stroller out there that can meet the needs of every family. Do your research and really think about your lifestyle and what kinds will best suit your needs. When you’ve decided, come by your local Kid to Kid and pick one out.
