The primary reason for the event? To round up toys or gear that have been deemed unsafe, Toys ‘R’ Us says. So bring in, for example, car seats with missing parts or ones that have been in an accident.

A news release reads:

“Safety has always been the root purpose of the company’s Trade-In events — and that hasn’t changed. In the eight years of events, Babies “R” Us has removed millions of unsafe products from the market, reducing the chance for children to be injured.”
