Donate or sell?

Trying to determine what I should do with some stuff.  I have this

which my son has outgrown, and its in pretty good condition.  He didn't get to ride it much because he is the size of an 8-9 year old and is only 5 so he outgrew it quickly.  We bought him a different one that should accommodate him until he is about 7-8 years old.  It is used so I can't donate it to say toys for tots or anything because all those want new toys.    Would you sell it or donate it?  Local places to donate here are Goodwill and Salvation Army.  

I also have an Ameda breastpump, which I am not sure what to do with.  It was hardly used but brand new it was pretty expensive (the whole set is like $300).   What on earth do I do with it??

I would try Craigslist first. If they don't sell after a week, either lower the price or donate.

Sell both, maybe half the price or so? Can the pump be used for more than one person? I know there are different types of pumps plus whoever buys it would buy new tubing and stuff.

I would look for a local FB page and try to sell your stuff there. Maybe find a moms page.

I don't donate to goodwill because they already have enough worthless crap. I don't like goodwill lol.

I hear that the salvation army was/is anti-gay

I would donate to goodwill or a local thrift shop. Selling is a pain

 Might try Craigslist (hate doing Craigslist though because you generally get about 50 phone calls and if you are lucky you wind up being able to sell the item); but ebay wouldn't really work for the golf cart due to shipping; but that shouldn't be a problem with the breast pump.
