what to do with all of these bikes?

LOL..my girls have so many bikes already. The one is a 12 inch bike I bought for my now 5 year old last christmas I hate to sell or get ride of it cause it is only not even a year old yet. She hasn't rode it all summer long because she learned how to ride a bike this summer and popped a whole in the tire lol. Instead of daddy fixing the tire he bought her a mongoose used for 30.00. That is 16 inches so a little bigger she can grow into. Well little did I know my mom was buying them a bike at a auction so now we have 4 bikes the sizes are 12, 16,16 and 18 inches. All girls bikes and I have only 2 girls 5 and 2.5 lol. I hate to sell these because the one is only not even a year old, the mongoose is an expensive bike and the other 2 my mom gave them. The 18 inch one she has to grow into will by next summer then I have 3 bikes what do I do with them lol

  • If you have room, hold on to them for your younger daughter. Even if your 5yo has outgrown the 12 inch, your 2.5 yo will grow into it.

  • Charity! I know it's hard to get rid of things, but if you don't need it find someone who does. Contact a school in a lower income part of town and donate it to them to raffle off to raise money for the school. Anything like that. :) It'll make you feel good and will set a great example for your girls.

  • When both your girls outgrow them you can give them away. Do you know any little girls? Or you can have a garage sale.

  • no all the girls I know are alot older. I just hate to get ride of the 12 inch cause I paid 60.00 for it last christmas. Then I hate to get ride of the mongoose because we just bought it used for 30.00 Saturday this past Saturday and then the other 2 my mom just brought them over today so I hate to get ride of the ones my mom just gave the girls I would feel really bad. And believe me she would no my 5 year old has a big mouth lol
