Toys"R"Us announces dates for Great Trade-In

Customers can trade old baby products for a discount on new items.

Toys"R"Us announced that its Great Trade-In event will begin on January 24 in Babies"R"Us and Toys"R"Us stores.

During the event, customers are invited to bring in potentially unsafe old and second-hand baby products and exchange them for a discount on new items. The event runs through February 17.

Since the program's start in 2009, the Great Trade-In has resulted in the removal of more than one million pieces of used and potentially unsafe cribs, car seats and more. Products with missing or damaged parts, significant wear or those that are no longer compliant with safety standards qualify for the program.

"At Toys"R"Us, one of our most important missions as a company is to help parents keep their children safe, and we are so proud that the Great Trade-In event has helped parents remove more than one million potentially unsafe products from the marketplace," said Hank Mullany, president of Toys"R"Us, U.S. "We know that the work is far from done, and we're pleased to once again host this program in our stores nationwide to encourage parents to bring back their outdated baby gear in exchange for new items that meet today's more stringent product standards."

During the Great Trade-In event, stores will accept any used cribs, car seats, bassinets, strollers, travel systems, play yards, high chairs, toddler/twin beds, swings, walkers, bouncers and entertainers in exchange for a 25% discount on the purchase of a new baby item in any of these product categories.
