Getting rid of old toys?

Do you occasionally go through your toy box and get rid of any toys or props that are broken/damaged? Does it make you feel sadly nostalgic, or refreshed?

It makes me kind of sad, probably because I have a very small/limited collection and don't want to make it smaller.

Largely indifferent. I get a faint feeling of sadness anytime I throw something out, but I try not to let it get to me.

Indifferent, mostly it give me an excuse to buy a newer better version of that type of toy.

We did go through a while back and throw out toys we just didn't like, didn't use anymore, or even some from when we would just go to the college town toy shop and buy what looked interesting at a college budget (read: jelly ect)

I don't mind getting rid of things if they're broken. Sometimes I throw things out just because I don't like them. Then I usually have a moment of feeling like I should keep it just because it's wasteful to throw it away. But if it's just sitting there, taking up space and will never be used, I really don't think it's any better to keep it.

Well, if you just want to get rid of toys you don't use anymore, you can try EdenClassifieds.

I wouldn't feel sad if they were just my toys, but toys that I used with someone, I'd get sad about if we weren't together anymore.

I don't like to throw out things that I spent money on, but then I don't like having things that just don't work for me laying around.

I am about to throw some away. Some jelly toys I never use, or want to use EVER. Only saving my safe material toys!

It makes me sad to not use (or have to give away) any decent toy, which is all I've intended to acquire. We can only play with so many, though. Some just end up as faves and tend to hog all the attention. Broken toys: Pretty indifferent, unless I did something retarded to break it.

If it's broken, I'm indifferent. If it's not broken, I don't throw it away.

Wow! Forgive my nosiness, but were they all duds or bum materials or something? Or was it just the need for a fresh start?

It depends on which toy I am getting rid of.

I will feel somewhat emotional if the toy was a real favourite - I have trouble letting go....hehe.
Otherwise I don't really think twice.

Generally speaking, anything broken is something is something that was not great quality to begin with....

We don't have a very large collection either. My guess is about 15 pieces (including vibrators and bdsm props), but some of them just don't work for us or were damaged, so there was no point in keeping them.

For the first time in over 40 years of TOY BUYING I trashed hundreds...maybe more, JELLY TOYS due to Health issues (and honestly, they were melting and discoloring from old age...some not used in 30 years or more). Replacing them with NEW, HIGH END silicone toys. However, just found another BIG stash of toys...some Jelly, AGAIN. Yikes. Yes, I do feel sad when tossing out these old friends.

Getting rid of ones that are broken or damaged -- indifferent.
Getting rid of ones that I just don't like but spent money on -- sad and wasteful.
