Plastic Toys Everywhere: What to Do?
Rae's got a similar problem to many of us who celebrate Christmas and participate in gift exchanges. Now that the the holidays are over, there's some purging to be had. She writes:
Santa (aka: Grandma) was extra "generous" this Christmas and we really aren't interested in the massive amount of toys. They're very plastic and not very high quality. I'd like to donate them instead of sending them to a landfill, but am not sure where I can drop them off. A shelter would be awesome or even a church or daycare. Some are brand new and in the box and others are toys that we've pulled out of our toy basket in an effort to clean out our small house. The question plaguing me is why I would donate them when we don't even want them? Part of me feels bad passing these toys off on to someone else since they don't meet our personal standards for quality. Thoughts? Ideas? Help!
