We’ve been invaded by teddy bears! They are everywhere, in the bedroom, toy room, hallway, the car, and even the bathroom. How do two little girls have so many teddy bears? This seems to be a problem many parents eventually must face. But figuring out what to do about it is a whole other issue.
If you want them gone from your home you may want to try getting rid of them for free. There are several places that will take gently used toys, especially teddy bears. Make sure they don’t smell of smoke and don’t appear too dirty. A few places you could drop off bags of bears would be the Salvation Army, orphanage or a homeless shelter. Any of the children in these places would be happy to have a teddy bear to hug, they won’t care that they aren’t brand new.
If you are looking to make a profit out of the teddy bears, you can do that too. Have a garage sale or try auctioning them off at eBay. In order to make any money off a yard sale/garage sale is buy getting word out before you do it. Start hanging up flyers two weeks before and make sure that they are still up the week before the event. This way everyone knows and can save up their money. Don’t forget to advertise what it is you are selling, in your case teddy bears. Make sure you’ve got lots of plastic bags on hand as well as change. Place all the teddy bears at the front of the sale, this is a sure way to get mom to purchase a few for her darling. Know that the customer will haggle on price and if you want to really make a lot of money have a set price. However, if it is getting late and you still have 4 bags of teddy bears you may want to reconsider.
