When did you start to get rid of your kids old toys.  And how do you go about it?   My DD's seem to pick up everything once in a while,  but there are definitely things that don't get played with much.  Do you put them away, donate or sell yours?

We sell the exxy stuff, and give the rest to people we know who need it. IF I knew someone who genuinely was in strife, I'd give away the bigger stuff too.

I put things away for 6 months or so and if they are never asked for again I sell them on Ebay or at the markets. My plan is to hand DS a nice cheque at his 21st. If toys are looked after they sell very well.

I have given some away and have put some out on the front kerb and they were picked up by that night.  Am actually planning on doing that again today with some bigger outside toys.

We donate ours to a charity bin if they are good, otherwise they get thrown out when they break.

Give some away, sell some on gumtree, donate to daycare or when I can to a women's shelter - some children turn up with absolutely nothing.  But that depends on when my friend's friend is collecting - they are very secretive about the location.

    How dogs could make children better readers

    Issues around children learning to read are rarely out of the news. Which is hardly surprising – becoming a successful reader is of paramount importance in improving a child's life chances. Nor is it surprising that reading creates a virtuous circle: the more you read the better you become. But what may come as a surprise is that reading to dogs is gaining popularity as a way of addressing concerns about children's reading.
