How to Sell or Buy Used Children’s Products

Posted by sanjeev rai on February 10th, 2022

The buying and selling of used children’s items have been a growing trend amongst parents in recent years. With all the attention towards waste mitigation and recycling, the resale of used children’s clothes, toys and accessories is quickly becoming the norm. On the other end of the spectrum, the used kid’s items market is a great way for new parents who are on a budget to buy and provide for their children. Through this article, we will discuss the most effective ways to sell preloved children’s items and also offer a few key points that will help in buying the right types of used kid’s items for your child. 

Selling Preloved Items 

One sure shot way to declutter your home and reduce waste at the same time is selling on the used market. Children outgrow items quickly. Clothes, toys, school books, uniforms and stationery are some of the things that tend to pile up. The school items are a real issue because kids need new school books and uniforms every year. Recycling children’s clothes, toys and school items by selling them on the preloved market can also help in recovering some of your initial investment. If you are looking to sell items on the used market then follow these simple steps. 

  1. Categorize them by condition. Some items like used kid’s clothes and books can have several grades of quality for which you can demand variable prices. Used toys on the other hand get tricky. You can only really sell toys that are in good condition and are complete with no pieces missing. Funnily enough, used board games are unique in this case. Complete sets are desired but if you have an incomplete game, you can sell the pieces individually to people who are trying to complete their incomplete board games. You should consider donating the ‘fair’ quality items and bin anything that’s too damaged. 

  2. The next step is cataloguing and making the items presentable. Clean your old children’s clothes, shine any toys or action figures and take clear and legible pictures. Having good descriptive pictures can help in making a sale. 

  3. Another great way to move your items quickly is to make bundles. Themed clothes, sets of toys and a complete set of school books sold together can help move your items quickly. 

Buying Used Items for Kids 

Children are expensive and move through items like clothes, toys and books extremely quickly. This ends up costing parents a considerable amount of money. If you’re on a budget, the preloved market is definitely a lifesaver. Buying preloved children\'s toys, secondhand books and used children’s clothes also helps the environment. Items aren’t always worn out or broken, on the contrary, because children go through clothes and toys so quickly, most of the items on sale will be in good condition, some even in ‘almost new’ condition. There are a few things to look out for when buying preloved children’s clothes and toys and we’re here to help simplify the process. 


Keep an eye out for the condition of items, especially in relation to their price. Usually, the seller would have added enough pictures to get a good look. If there aren’t enough legible pictures, be patient, other options will come your way. 


Shop the deals. Usually, the months following the end of a school term see many great children’s school items listed online. The end of the season is also a great time for buying used children’s clothes so keep an eye out and you’ll be able to nab some great items at amazing prices! 


For both shoppers and sellers, finding the right network and marketplace is crucial to meet your goal. The Share Bear offers a diverse marketplace where parents buy and sell used children’s toys, preloved clothes and all sorts of accessories. You can get some of the best deals for newborn baby items. You’ll be surprised at the deals available and the quality of the items being sold. The preloved market is great for our environment as it promotes recycling and reduces unnecessary waste which is the need of the hour.

So next time you’re looking to buy preloved children’s items and secondhand books or need to get rid of used kid’s toys then consider The Share Bear.
