Kids grow so fast and their interests change so quickly that, to keep up, parents are seeking more clothes and toys every few months. This adds up – taking up space and dollars. Fortunately, the trend to thrift has extended to children with a significant number (around 80%) of parents opting to supplement their children’s wardrobes and toy boxes with quality preloved clothing and toys, and up to 75% of parents getting on board to on-sell to help their and other’s pockets.

So, if you’re looking for items that need to last only a few months (like that briefly popular toy or game) you might get lucky at a thrift stall.

We’re excited to be offering, in addition to our usual preloved wearables for the grown-ups, 0-12 kid’s preloved clothing and small toys at our markets from December 2021. Our friend of the MyKids Market has hung up her shingles (her market will be sorely missed) and we’ve had so many enquiries that, with the MyKids Market blessing, we are now providing this opportunity locally in southern Tasmania.

Join with friends and bring along your baby and toddler wear, and small toys and items, like books, wooden, solid plastic and plush toys, small equipment like baby monitors and the such like. Just make sure, please, that all is clean, wiped down, not compromised with cracks or broken (or loose) bits, and are items you would confidently pass on to a friend.
