    If you can't sell, I second this. Or places like the Red Cross op shops, salvo's etc. Plenty of people don't have the money for brand new, and our buy and sell pages always have seats exchanging hands.

    I put 2 of ours on a BSS site and they were snapped up within 5 minutes (and surprisingly, collected the same say as well).

    No, because they mostly buy brand new stuff.
    I have found out there is a place around the corner that collects 2nd hand baby stuff to distribute to charities, but they are apparently very fussy. I will try them anyway though.

    If your in the Sydney area there is an organisation by the name of Dandelion. They will clean and safety check and redistribute to disadvantaged families. Salvos, St Vincent de Paul etc don't take these type of baby items as they are not authorised to safety check them, sadly if they are donated they go to waste.

    St Kilda Mum's in Melbourne take them. They safety check before distributing. They have sister organisations in Ballarat and Geelong.

    Gumtree is another good place for things. If you're trying to give them away, I found saying $10 will get a bite better than saying for free. I advertised a big toy kitchen for free, no takers after 2 weeks so I put it up for $15 and it sold that day (didn't take the persons money when they arrived).
