Trading up

Trading up

Modern society moves at lightning pace. While marbles, cards and simple ball games were the childhood ‘toys’ of our grandparents’ era, nowadays there seems to be a hot new ‘thing’ in childhood entertainment every other week. Remember, our grandparents, as kids, had the option of one or two major bricks-and-mortar department stores, usually a tram-ride from their family’s home. Nowadays, we can log on to the Internet from anywhere, purchase a cheap toy from the other side of the world, and have it delivered to our doorstep as quick as anything – every other week! 

So, don’t despair as your kids’ tastes in toys and entertainment rapidly changes. Here at BrickResales, we know that they are always looking for the next best thing. Once your teenage kids have outgrown their LEGO collection, why not simply sell it to us and turn it into cold, hard cash that they can then turn into that next best thing.

It is not uncommon for teens to contact us via our BrickResales social media pages or our website and ask “How much could I get for my LEGO collection?”. Once they hear what their unused LEGO parts could be worth, we find it’s usually a no-brainer for parents to agree to them selling it and, quick as a flash, they turn those preloved plastic bricks and parts into a shiny new X-Box, Playstation or the like. We love the story of the father and son, for example, who discovered a love of treasure hunting and fossicking the sand of their local beaches. The pair turned their family’s preloved LEGO stash into two matching metal detectors for the next chapter of entertainment in their lives.

Think of your kids’ LEGO-selling experience as a valuable life lesson in recycling and repurposing. And, of course, it’s a lesson in resources and showing them the true value of money via buying and selling. If you have tubs of unused, preloved LEGO bricks collecting dust in your home, why not give us a call to find out what it could be worth. It might be one of the most constructive phone calls you make today!
