Our very first Children’s Resale Shop was opened in October of 2013. The Blue Kangaroo name came shortly after in February of 2014. Our original Flag Ship brick and mortar was opened in Cranberry Township just about 25 minutes North of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Our primary objective was to fill the need that we saw in our community – a place to buy and sell our children’s gently used clothing and goods. Since then, our objective has only grown and developed more and more each year.

Seeing the developing trend of internet shopping, we closed our brick and mortar in July of 2016 and went entirely online. This has allowed the business to flourish and grow in more ways than we had anticipated. It has granted us the luxury of truly following our creativity and developing a sincere passion for sustainable fashion and ethical production.
