Well, I don’t have children, but there are plenty of toys to buy for my little niece at garage sales. I opt for plastic and wooden toys – they are easily cleaned with hot water and vinegar. Moreover, wooden toys are often durable enough to pass it from generation to generation. I avoid buying stuffed toys because they aren’t designed for laundry washing and they contain various microbes and bacteria. Board games are also a good thing to purchase at garage sales. If they lack some pieces you can easily replace them.
