Getting rid of SDs toys
I am cleaning out our spare bedroom (SD's room, sorta) in preparation to fix it up as a nursery for my second baby. For those of you keeping track I won that fight! my husband was resistant to giving this room to our second baby because I suspected he wanted to keep it available for SD when she graduates high school in 6 years.
Anyway we used to get her toys but stopped because she would never take them with her to her mom's house. She would always take clothes and shoes home but leave toys here. There are some things that are brand new in the box and never opened. Some of these toys are calico critters which she specifically asked for when she was 10 even though they are intended for kids ages 3 and up. Never even took them out of the box. she's 12 and her main toy now is her cell phone so I'm not quite sure what to do with these toys. Should I leave them in the boxes and just store them away and then give them to my kids when their age appropriate? Should I donate them? There are some stuffed animals here given to her by her aunt's as well I know toys for tots prefers unwrapped toys still in the box so stuffed animals cantreally be donated in the same way. What would you do with them? SD has had several chances to take them home she just doesn't want these things.
There is a big box of Legos that we're definitely going to keep however!
