Stuffed animals/dolls.. Im not talking a small amount.. im talking like 4 50 gallon containers stuffed to the MAX with them? Some my DD has never seen.. I am amazed at how many she has because shes only 4... they just appear. Granted some of them were mine when I was younger, some as gifts, some just appeared i swear! She does not play with them.. I want to just give them all to good will but thats A LOT of stuffed animals.. I dont know what to do with them all, I think I would feel bad If I dumped them off at good will. I know they have a TON already. Were moving in 3-4 months across country practically and I really dont want to take all that much with us.

I donate my DD's unwanted stuffed toys to the local police and fire department. They hand them out to kids that have been in a traumatic situation. The sheriff's deputies always have teddy bears in the trunk of their patrol cars.

yea, we had about 100 or so no exaggeration.. i gave most of them to a homeless shelter and the ones with tags i gave to kids on the angel tree that wanted teddy bears and such

Also having that many can cause allergies for your child

Check with your local childrens hospital, a lot of hospitals will take them to give out to sick kids.

Im not sure my firedept would take them. Its volunteer ( I live in a small area).. I should look into it though. I know there are a lot of kids out here that would like them. Most of them are gently used since they have been packed up.

This is what I was going to suggest!

Police, fire, ambulance and hospitals take them to comfort sick, injured or upset children.
