If you’re ever looking to pick something up pretty cheap, then there’s a good chance you’ll head to your nearest Goodwill store to see if they have what you’re looking for before you scour the internet. There is always something interesting hiding on the shelves at Goodwill, you just have to spend a little bit of time trying to find the hidden treasure.
Luckily, you don’t often have to spend too long as all you really need to do is head to the toy section and you’ll most likely find a few forgotten favorites of yours from when you were growing up. The Goodwill stores allow some of our most cherished toys, clothes, and household items a second chance at a new life when they find new owners and homes to go to after being given away by their previous ones.
Occasionally you’ll find gold, and there will be something stored on the shelves at Goodwill that has never been opened making you be the first to do so. One shopper found an old toy at Goodwill, and after playing with it soon wished they’d left it well alone.
Instead of just throwing it away in the bin, a Tumblr user decided they would document their experience with this forgotten toy they picked up at Goodwill. The toy was a favorite of theirs when they were growing up, so they jumped at the chance to have a little bit of a nostalgic reunion with it. They were not expecting to regret their purchase, but as time went on this Tumblr user quickly wished they’d never bought the toy in the first place.
Kids are pretty much obsessed with toys. You know, you were once a kid. There is not a day goes by when a child doesn’t want to play with their favorite toy and if you take them into a store that has toys, you know you’re going to have a hard time leaving without having to buy something. As we grow older we still sometimes want to feel like a kid again and buy a toy or two to please the child inside us.
