Toys, Baby Equipment and Nursery Furniture must be Clean & Current.
Current means for the most part within a 5-year manufacture date. There are some exceptions to this guideline, ( wooden high chairs, eg.), so we recommend that you call first before bringing “older” items down. All items must be clean, have all the parts, working batteries and meet current safety regulations. Please take the time to wipe down all toys, wash covers on equipment and bring all parts & pieces at the time of consignment. We are very sorry but we do not have time to clean items and cannot accept them for sale if they are not ready for the sales floor. The Stork Exchange puts out almost 300 new items a day and therefore we appreciate your cooperation in this area. We do check for recalls and, in the case of a recalled item, require that the safety retrofit be installed prior to being accepted for sale. Also, painted items need to be checked closer. Please call first if you are unsure if an item is in compliance with the law.
Toys should be for Newborn through Age 3. There are some exceptions but we are primarily looking for 3yr and under age appropriateness.
Car seats must be within a 3-year date. All car seats must have the owners instruction manual with it and they will be inspected to insure that they are safe to sell.
Cribs must be in compliance with a recent change in law. Therefore, cribs must be dated 7/2011 or newer.
We do not take Barbies, stuffed animals, matchbox cars, dolls, board games, toys for older kids, bike seats & bike trailers.
