By November 25, 2012

Follow me on:

Have you ever wondered where or how to donate used toys? Now that the holiday season is here, it's time to re-organize the play room and plan for the influx of new toys and gifts to our homes. Fantastic organizations like Toys for Toys take new, unwrapped toys, but aside with trying to deal with added stress of selling toys on Cragislist, Amazon or Ebay, have you ever wondered if there are organizations who will take your old toys?

Each community and organization is different and may have its own rules and regulations, but aside from friends and family members who are often happy to take hand-me-downs, there may be childcare centers, school systems and government organizations who will be the lucky recipient of your child's former favorites.

Read here for more specific information on the steps necessary with donating toys, identifying toy recalls,  how to clean toys and the types of toys various organizations may find beneficial.
