What do you do with old toys? Do you get rid of the ones you have once your kid's birthday comes? I am overwhelmed with toys.

  • If they are broken or missing pieces I toss them. If hey are in good shape I donate them. I am constantly getting rid of toys. They seem to multiply in my house.

  • Goodwill or Freecycle.

  • I don't prefer Goodwill. The one near me has bags piled up in the back. Almost like they trash their stuff. Thanks. I'll call Purple Heart.

  • You can send them to me ;0) I usually find someone who needs some toys and give them away.

  • Goodwill usually has a main store it is that stores job to sort all the stuff and then distribute to the other stores. The store you visited with bags could have been that store or it was things they hadn't got to yet. I would donate to the salvation army but they keep weird hours so I donate all my stuff to goodwill

  • I sort through them about once a month because they are constantly getting new toys. I just sort with through what they dont play with, whats broken and I take them to a catholic charity thing because they dont try to make a profit off them, they give them away to those who need them.

  • Also a lot of people try and use goodwill and other charity stores as a dump and donate trash.
