To sell or not to sell?

I need advice, not sure if anyone is reading my blog lately but if you are stumbling across it let me know what you think. I'm a big ebay'er, craigslist'er for items around the house we no longer use, I don't really like clutter plus I can always usea little extra money. I have this cute lot of Fisher Price snap 'n' style dolls with outfits, Sara doesn't play with them too much anymore and they sell pretty well on ebay but part of my wants to keep them, they are super cute and come in handy if I watch younger kids or we have friends over for dinner with young girls or (and call me crazy) I am thinking way ahead and thinking maybe one day I'll have little granddaughters and they'll like to play with them. So keep em or sell em? that is the question, any advice?

Sell them. You are Hillarious you should not keep anything for your granddaughters except pictures and stuff like that not toys :)lol. Make the $$$

Ha, that's funny. I was gonna say Keep Them! Just because if you're an avid ebay-er, are able to part with things easily, then maybe every once and a while you can hold onto something that is sentimental for you. It's okay. I'm a big thrower-away-er (crazy word), too. I understand not wanting to clutter. When my kids go home to my dad's house he has kept a bunch of our old toys and I think it's so cool that my kids are all excited to play with them. But that's just me....

I say don't keep a lot, but every once in a while it's cool to hold onto something.

I'm with Beth. You don't keep a whole lot that you're not using (as evidenced by the bag of maternity clothes you gave me like 3 years ago) so there's nothing wrong with keeping something small that you like and that could be useful down the road.

i vote keep them. they look like a small enough bunch of toys that wouldn't take up much space, but a good toy to have on hand, like you said.

The fact that you are even slightly on the fence tells me that you should keep them for now and re-evaluate in about a year or so. Have you used them in the last year? Or have they sat not touched? Maybe you'll have a better idea then. But I say KEEP 'EM!
