Toys and games

If your toys are in good working order you could try to sell them - advertise in local papers or on community noticeboards

Pass on items for free at places such as Freecycle and Freegle or sell them on websites like eBay, Gumtree and Preloved.

Toys in good condition can also be taken to a charity shop, jumble sale or carboot sale.

Give toys to a local church, playgroup or hospital - check what is suitable for their needs first.

Friends, family or neighbours with younger children may appreciate them too.

Try to keep the safety information and any instructions for the toy/game. This is particularly useful if you pass the toy on to friends, family or a charity shop.

Renfrewshire Council run the Toy Library service is based in Foxbar Library and is open to all adult library members who care for children. Parents, grandparents and carers can borrow from a variety of high quality toys which can help children develop vital skills. Please consider donating toys in good condition.
