In the past five years, the second hand market for baby gear has expanded to include any and all types of gear from safety gates, clothing, toys and everything in between. Unlike car seats, strollers never expire which means that if you find one that has only been lightly used and is of high quality, it can be a solid investment with a little bit of maintenance. Many charities do not take strollers for liability reasons which means a lot of baby gear that otherwise has a lot of life left, ends up in a landfill.
