Would you buy used toys?

I do. We actually buy a lot of used toys. Since the good brand toys are way overpriced we ebay a lot. We wouldnt buy anything that you cant clean. But stuff that you can clean easily (like plastics) i dont have a problem with buying it. We usually buy Fisher Price.

  • we buy a lot from yard sales. We only buy books, plastic toys, or something that is easily cleaned. No stuffed animals.

  • Yes indeed. Some of our favorite toys were second-hand. Hot wheels, fischer price. I'd clean them thoroughly and fix them up a bit.

  • I don't see the harm in it. My daughter gets new toys all the time, but if I see something at a thrift store or a yard sale or even a flea market i'll buy it.
