The toddler stage is an active one. It lasts from ages 1-3. Legend has it that there is a peak in bad behavior around age 2, which is why we have all heard of the horror of the terrible twos. Kids of toddler age need durable yet flexible clothing, because little ones in this phase of life like to move around with uncoordinated bodies. However, that doesn’t mean they can’t still look stylish. Some of the best stores for toddler clothing in Orange County bear in mind that parents love to make their kids look good in public.

Newport Kids Upscale Resale
1775 Newport Blvd.
Costa Mesa, CA 92627
(949) 548-2849
www.newportkidsconsignment.com

This is the consignment store for kids who need to look fashionable. The store is marketed towards customers looking for upscale clothes, so they will only accept certain brands that are listed on their site. They also have a list of brands they will not accept. Old Navy and K-Mart brand clothing is unacceptable, as is Walmart’s Faded Glory brand. For those who wish to sell their clothing at the store, it is written on their site that the “account balance (your share of the sales proceeds) can either be cashed out or applied as in-store credit towards your purchases of store merchandise.”
