all the stuffed animals your children accumulate over the years?  My kids have a TON of them and besides a few sentimental ones, I want to get rid of them all.  Any ideas?  I'd love to donate them but I know most places only accept new ones.  I'm drowning in stuffed animals over here!

 I had the nets that attach to the ceiling for my boys. They go up kind of like a hammock and I would just throw all of the animals up there. Luckily for me as the boys got older they started giving their girlfriends the ones that were "important" and that stream lined a lot for me!

Goodwill. Salvation Army.  Sometimes police or fire stations will to give children in tense situations if they are in nice condition.

It would be a great teaching tool if you boxed them up and sent them to Moore, OK. I'm waiting for an address of a close friend who is collecting needed items and passing them out. Stuffed animals would be great for the little ones there.

My kids still have all their stuff animals some of them are boxed for when they have kids but they still a lot of them in their rooms. An my kids are 12 and 14.

Goodwill and Salvation Army will not take stuff animals or toys any more. Good idea on police and fire station.
