Hi All,

I just wanted to know what do you typically do when your child runs through the toy / books

I give it to my maid or other staff who has children. But there are certain toys I cannot give them because it would be impossible for them to use either because it is not age appropriate or they do not have the necessary gadgets for the same.

I especially have problems with books (english). Am not sure maid's kids are that comfortable with the language without someone helping them out. So I am in a quandary. It is too much of a hassle to give it to an NGO when it is just a few odd books. 
Would like to know if any of you face the same problem

Hi, There is a Facebook page 'Kiddiwinks', which is a second sale of kid's books. There you can post your books for second sale. People interested would buy.

Thanks a lot. They specialized in imported books from UK & USA. Is that so?

You may donate your books/toys to a library or a playschool/daycare. They will appreciate it a they are always in need of materials.

Not sure about specialized in imported books from UK & USA. Believe they have mixed ones. Need to check.

Kiddiwinks is very much available in Chennai. It's a closed group. So existing members can invite their Facebook friends to this group.

Thanks aanchal. So true that a library/playschool is always interested. I need to accumulate books/toys for it. Just wondering what to do with the one offs.
