If you are like me, your days once filled with the sound of a crying infant and the smell of baby powder, now to be replaced by a home that is filled with laughter and a sense of peace that is unmatched. it’s time to say goodbye to our old friends-the stroller, bouncer, swing, etc. now what? let’s take a moment to remember those good times as we share some ideas on what you can do with an old stroller.
Do Strollers Expire?
In short, no strollers don’t have an expiration date. there is no law that states a stroller has to be replaced every so many year. after all, they are designed to be used as long as possible and can be used by many other children without the need to replace them. The material used in strollers is very durable and created to last a very long time.
However, you must remember that to keep the stroller in good condition, you must keep it thoroughly washed and cleaned every so often. it is important to always wash your strollers after each use, never wait until the next time. This will help prevent any dirt from building up throughout the season that can affect your baby’s health and comfort.
What to Do With Old Strollers?
1. Donate to Charity:
The best thing you can do with an old stroller is to donate it to someone that will use it for a good cause. the money from well-made charity strollers can be used by local charities, schools, and community organizations alike. the best part is that you can write off the cost of your stroller at tax time.
If you have a good heart and don’t need the stroller anymore, take it to the local shelter or charity store. they can use it to keep the children warm and safe during the cold winter months.
2. Pass it on to a friend or family:
Just like a car, no one wants to see your old stroller go to waste. so why not pass it on? tell your friends and family that the stroller is up for grabs. they can use it for free as long as they promise to take care of it and not abuse it or throw out their trash in it. although this might sound cheap, If you know someone who is expecting, then you can offer them a used stroller for free and it will surely have sentimental value and be appreciated by the person
3. Sell it:
sometimes, you might not be able to pass it on to your friends or family so then sell it. You can go online and have your stroller listed for sale on a local trading site. they will help you list it and sell it so that you can get some money out of your old stroller. giving it to someone who wants to use it is the best way to go, but you also need to do what is best for you and your family if you need some change and don’t know who to give the strollers to.
How many years are strollers Good For?
When people think of a stroller, they often forget they are made to last. Strollers are built to last and can be used by many children before they’re no longer needed or worn out. As long as you take good care of it, then your stroller will have a lot of years left in it. So in short they last a very long time.
I hope this article has helped you. Yes, strollers are made to last an extremely long time. They are sturdy and can be used by many children without having to be replaced. It’s better to donate it to a charity that will use a new one each year if you cannot pass it on then leave it lying around or toss it in the trash where no one can use it for anything good.
