All they have to do is check the gifts and if not appropriate sell them for some outrageous second hand price in their stores. I wrapped up the older kids duplo for my little one, he didn't have a clue - some second hand gifts are perfectly fine, sometimes better than cheap/expensive and nasty crap you can buy today.

Though my ex sister in law who was a salt and pepper shaker collector, did get put out one year when I gave her a lovely old set I'd found in a op shop for Christmas...obviously she was all plark and not a real collector at all.

I agree with this:

it may be the only present they get and they won't want some ratty teddy drooled on by another child, new presents for all

That's why everything should be checked over first - sometimes we get wrapped presents for kids in hospital with age/sex label, we unwrap everything to make sure its appropriate, we don't encourage second hand toys, but some for example baby toys are like new anyway having hardly been handled. Did get some ratty teddies given for gifts one year, went straight in the bin.

 Bah Humbug   I don't like this you lot being called lefties

I'm a leftie!
Left handed that is


And it's not a good thing that you lot are trying to take over the amazing awesomeness of being a lefty with pathetic political crap

 

(today I discovered I can hit a nail with a hammer as well if my right hand as my left. I thought that was pretty handy)
