All items must be clean and in working order (batteries included.) Small parts must be bagged and attached to the main part very securely. If parts get separated it will not sell. Games should be taped closed. Puzzles, books, videos and small toys should be grouped accordingly and put in ziploc bags. Secure with clear packing tape and pin tag to the ziploc bag. It is also good to write your consignor number and info on the ziploc bag with a Sharpee in case the tag comes off. Puzzles should be wrapped securely in clear Saran wrap to keep the pieces intact. TOYS NOT PACKAGED APPROPRIATELY WILL BE TURNED AWAY.

Toy recall information- Due to the high number of toy recalls during the past year, we will be inspecting toys very carefully. We reserve the right to pull any toy that we think might have been recalled. To help us, please do not bring any toys that have been subject to a recall. A helpful resource is made available by the Consumer Product Safety Commission Click here.

Then safety pin the string tag to a shoe lace or through the shoe eyelet, AND ziptie the two shoes together so they do not get separated. SHOES THAT ARE TOO WORN, DIRTY OR HAVE SCUFF MARKS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.
