From Friday, August 26 through Sunday, September 18, Babies“R”Us and Toys“R”Us stores nationwide are holding the Great Trade-In event, providing our guests the opportunity to trade-in any used cribs, car seats, bassinets, strollers, travel systems, play yards, high chairs, walkers, swings, bouncers, entertainers or kids’ beds in exchange for a 25% savings on the purchase of any new baby item, in any of these product categories, from select manufacturers.
The Great Trade-In event places an emphasis on specific baby products, such as cribs and car seats that, due to safety concerns, may not be the best candidates to be handed down or resold. Beyond recalls, certain older and used baby items can be potentially unsafe for a variety of reasons, including damage or lack of compliance with recent advances in product safety standards, including new crib standards that took effect on June 28, 2011, which prohibit the manufacture or sale of drop-side cribs and require significant improvements in quality standards and testing.
Visit your local Babies“R”Us or Toys“R”Us store to trade-in your used crib, car seat or other qualifying baby product. Day care centers or other organizations that wish to exchange items in bulk are encouraged to contact their local Babies“R”Us or Toys“R”Us store prior to returning their used items to ensure adequate availability of new merchandise.
