  • Assuming newer models and pretty good condition my estimates would be:
    Stroller combo - $75
    Bassinet - $30
    Changing table - $25 - $50 (I paid $45 for a used one at Once Upon A Child)
    Swing - $50 (maybe more if it's the cradle/swing type)
    You can always price a little higher and if you get no responses drop your prices. If you watch Craigslist in your area for a few days you'll see which items at which prices are actually disappearing from the listings and which ones are obviously not selling. Good luck.

  • Well for one, you shouldn't sell a used car seat. Doesn't matter what you say about it.

    Half price or below half price if they are in good condition and not outdated. If they are out dated 75% off.

  • for the stroller car seat combo id pay 100 just cuz iv been shopping for one for our new baby on the way and they can run around 200 dollers of course it depends on the brand we are looking at graco.
    Bassinet id say 30 or 40

  • Depends on the brand .

    But 50% of the NEW price is a good rule of thumb.

  • It all depends personally, for me, the model and how old they are.

    For a stroller combo, if it were under 2 years old and in great condition about $70
    the bassinet...if its the older type maybe $15 newer about $30
    changing table, depends on what kind for me...if its knicked up and age, but normally like $50
    Swing, depending on age, if it is under 2 years about $50
