    When kids outgrow the toys most parents either giveaway or treasure their toys.

    If a known or unknown person gives the toys for your child, how would you feel.

    It is indeed a saving in a way but most people who can afford toys often feel, "Why use someone else's used toys?"

    How should one go about this issue considering the fact that toys don't come cheap these days and children outgrow them quickly?

    I am thinking of giving away my daughters unwanted toys. I mean if they are still in good shape I am sure there will be a a family that will appreciate them. There are many families that can't afford not even the simplest of toys that are suffering economically. I know for sure most people here tend to buy used toys to be able to have gifts for their children especially on the holidays.

    Where I live, people appreciate anything free even if it's used. Of course, I would recommend disinfecting the toys well before handing them to your child. If someone gave my child a toy, I would be grateful. There's no harm in receiving free things even if you don't like it. You can receive it then give it to someone that wants it.

    I have no problem in receiving used toys from my relatives and friends, if they are in good condition. It does save money. And the other thing is that for the kids it's a new toy. If they are happy, I am happy.

    These were often some of the best ones, in my opinion. I really think back and recognize how much I was the benefit of this being a youngest child, but I also had some rough times with that so I guess it really evened itself out in the end.

    Just last week I was cleaning up my kids room with their help and we were deciding which toys we would give away because they don't use them, but also because we need the space for another things. I think it's healthy that we keep some for sentimental reasons, but the majority of the toys they no longer use it's important that we give they away for them to realize that other kids might use them.

    Receiving a free toy for my kid isn't a big deal for me since in our place you would be really happy if someone gives you something. As long as the kid would want the toy, I would gladly take it. If the kid does not like it, I would take it and give it away. There is a big fast food chain in our country that asks people to give away their old toys and they will give it to less fortunate children. They have a big box in their store where you can put your toys. I usually donate old toys there, at least another child who can't afford to buy toys would have fun playing with the toys I do not use anymore.

    Your kid is very fortunate, as there are kids who don't have any toy at all!

    Just yesterday my club organized a solidarity practice session where we could be with the players and we delivered toys for those who don't have it. I really enjoyed it!
