The following are examples of what we accept – and don’t accept – for consignment at Rugrats Resale. These lists are to serve as guides. We generally accept any children’s item provided it is in excellent condition. If you have questions about an item, feel free to contact us!

Accepted Items

These examples are almost always accepted at Rugrats Resale!

  • New and Gently Used Children’s Clothing

    We accept size Preemie to children’s 16. Please only list items for the current season. Coats, sweaters, and long pants are sold during the Fall/Winter sale. Shorts, capris, tank tops, and light weight jackets are accepted during the Spring/Summer sale. Clothing must be clean and free of any stains or holes. All zippers and snaps must function properly.

  • Maternity Clothing

    All seasons of maternity clothing in current style and excellent condition are accepted.

  • Shoes

    We accept Infant size 0 though Big Kid size 7. Shoes must be clean and without excessive wear – the sole should still have a tread and not be smooth. Please only list footwear for the current season; snow boots for Fall/Winter and sandals for Spring/Summer.

  • Toys

    Toys should include all major parts. If a minor part is missing, it should be clearly noted on the tag. Battery operated toys must include working batteries, functional battery covers, and applicable chargers.

  • Books

    Children’s and Maternity hardcover and paperback books are welcome. Books should be in good condition, free of writing and torn pages. Partially completed sticker books are not accepted.

  • Video Games, DVDs, & CDs

    Games rated ESRB TEEN and under and Children’s DVDs rated G and PG are welcome at our sale. Children’s music CDs only, please.

  • Infant Equipment

    High chairs, bouncers, swings, strollers, activity mats, and stationary chairs are all great items to sell at Rugrats Resale. These items should all be sanitized and function properly.

  • Outdoor Play Equipment

    Bikes, trikes, scooters, ride-ons, playsets, and wagons are examples of items that are accepted. Play equipment must be clean and in good working order.

  • Children’s Furniture

    Toddler beds, cribs, mattresses, changing tables, rocking chairs, gliders, and twin size headboards are all accepted. Furniture must not show signs of excessive wear.

  • New or Unopened Baby Items

    New items sealed in factory packaging or with the original tags tend to sell very well. For example, unopened diapers and pacifiers sell quickly!

Accepted With Restrictions

These items are generally accepted; however, they require some special attention. If you plan to consign any of the items listed here, please make sure you follow the restrictions carefully.

  • Bedding

    Single layer blankets and sheets are the only bedding item accepted at the sale.

    Used comforters, quilts, crib bumpers, pillows, sleeping bags, and any bedding item that contains fiber fill will not be accepted at the sale. PA state law requires that previously owned items with fiber fill be sprayed prior to sale. At this time, the spraying process is too labor intensive for us to accept these items. If you are selling a used bedding set, be sure the set does not include items with fiber fill. For more details, see spraying.

    In addition to the above, all infant sleep positioners of any type are prohibited in accordance with federal government recommendations.

  • Boppy Nursing Pillows

    Boppy nursing pillows may be listed for sale. However, the pillows require spraying by PA state law. Please remove Boppy pillows from their cases prior to drop off. You can attach the pillow case to the Boppy with a safety pin.

  • Bumbo Baby Seats

    Bumbo Baby Seats are accepted provided they have been fitted with the free repair kit as detailed in the recall information posted here.

  • Cribs

    Cribs must be manufactured after June 28, 2011 per government regulations. Cribs with an earlier date of manufacture will not be accepted.

  • Board Games & Puzzles

    Board games and puzzles must include all pieces as described on the original box. Games with missing pieces will not be accepted at the sale. “Add ons” for games – such as additional card decks or expansion packs – are also not accepted.

  • Arts & Crafts

    New or like-new art supplies and craft projects are always accepted at the sale. Please do not list craft items that have been used. This includes coloring books with missing or colored pages, boxed craft projects that have been opened, and sticker books that have been partially completed.

Sprayed Items

Pennsylvania state law requires that previously owned items with fiber fill be sprayed prior to sale. The spraying process involves moving these items outside, spraying them with a state approved insecticide, allowing them to dry, the application of a yellow “law label” sticker, and finally moving the items back onto the sale floor. Due to the additional logistics involved, these items must be dropped off no later than 7pm on drop off day; please schedule your drop off appointment accordingly.

As noted above, bedding items that contain fiber fill are not accepted.

Tags on sprayed items must be pinned. Sprayed items with taped on tags will not be accepted.

The following items must be sprayed according to PA state law:

  • Bouncers

  • Carriers

  • Changing Pads

  • High Chairs

  • Mattresses

  • Nursing Pillows

  • Pack ‘n Plays

  • Playmats

  • Rock ‘n Plays

  • Strollers

  • Baby Swings
