Got Too Many Toys? You Need This App!

Got Too Many Toys? You Need This App!

Is your home overrun with toys that are no longer played with? Do you have the urge to do a big clear out, but aren't sure where to start? We have a solution!

The first ever free toy sharing app is here! Appytoy is the app for people wanting to exchange pre-loved toys. 

The app aims to connect households, businesses and charities to allow those with too many toys to pass them on to others who need them. Parents list pre-loved toys and give them away to other members who live or work nearby. It's a fun, quick and easy way to exchange toys. It saves parents time, money and attic space. While teaching children to share, re-use and recycle. It also gives them an opportunity to meet neighbours, make friends and strengthen communities.

Appytoy has been tested by almost 50 parents over the past 6 months with 100% positive feedback. Having no value attached to the toys impressed parents as high-end products can be exchanged for say a book.

Oisin a mother of 3 asked;

“…is it possible to upload a baby's rattle and swap for a bike in return?"

Yes! That's the magic and you need to embrace this if you become part of the Appytoy Community. It's not about getting a return on your unwanted toys; it's about sharing and building the community. Appytoy is built on the “Sharing Economy‘’, principle and business model. Put simply a sharing economy is a marketplace for sharing underused assets that is run in a sustainable, social and collaborative way.

Toys cluttering up the home is a real challenge for parents. Appytoy interviewed 120 parents and found 95% live in homes cluttered with toys. 72% of them are doing nothing about it. In 2016, research conducted by packaging recycling scheme, Repak, revealed three-quarters of all Irish parents have thrown out their children’s toys before Christmas. This last bid to clear space before the big man arrives means that most are not disposed of properly. In fact, 99% of the estimated EU and US 55 Bn Euro toy industry end up in a landfill or retired to a lonely attic.
