Is it wrong to give children second-hand toys for Christmas or Birthdays?
I don’t think so and neither does Mabel and Martha
You see quite a while ago when my parents were cleaning out their loft they came across lots of my old toys from 1996. Looking through them I just knew the girls would absolutely love playing with them one day, and that day happened to be on Christmas morning when they unwrapped them all.
You see, to them, it doesn’t matter whether the toy comes in a box, or has been used to play with before, or has some slight fading, because to them they have lots of fabulous new toys to play with. These sorts of toys are quite expensive now so being able to save where we can is important, plus just look how happy the girls are with their Animal Hospital, Animal House, The Pet Shop, The Stables, The Vet Cars, etc.
And hey, having the girls play with toys I did over 20 years ago is quite special. Maybe they will save them for their children one day.
