About Kid Stuff

As a mom of 6 kids, I started this business to fill a gap for Quality Maternity and Children's resale items in the Dekalb area. Kid Stuff opened its doors for the first time on August 1st, 1999. We had approximately 1500 square feet of merchandise. After almost 8 years, we MOVED to our NEW Location at 149 E Lincoln Hwy in May 2007. Our new location boasts approximately 4500 square feet on two floors. Kid Stuff has the largest maternity selection in Northern Illinois in sizes XS to plus. It is full of fun, trendy, and stylish items. There is beautiful baby equipment galore, fabulous furniture, TONS of terrific toys for all ages, children's fun & trendy clothes sizes preemie to tween 12/14, gift items, and plenty of room to roam. There is a large playroom located on the lower level that has a chalkboard wall, a LEGO DUPLO table, wood train sets, comfy chairs for caregivers, and lots and lots of fun toys.
