The "I Have Available..." Thread!!!

post #1 of 53
Thread Starter 

Welcome to another year of Holiday Helpers!


This is the thread where Holiday Helper Donators can list items they have available, but don't know which FIN would like them.


We are running this thread a little bit differently than we have in the past.  This year, when something is posted on the "I Have Available..." thread, it will be temporarily held for 48 hours. That will give the HH Facilitators a chance to match it up with known needs on the FIN lists.


After that 48 hours, the remaining items are available to FINs who did *NOT* have that item on their needs list (but could still use the item).


FIN: If you want to request anything, please PM TiredX2 with your request (PLEASE remember to include post #, item description and your FIN #).


Please contact TiredX2 with any questions about "I Have Available...".


Thank you and HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!

So happy to be back in HH season! I have a $40 Groupon to the Body Shop. Good for $40 worth of anything there, including sale items. NOT redeemable on black Friday. And expires Dec. 26th, so it needs to be for a MIN who is, say, going to buy gifts for her DD (or herself!) there. I will mail it.

I can make pouches for baby wearing. Tentatively I am putting 2 out, as well as pouches for kids to wear with their dolls.  They are not adjustable so I need measurements off the people.

I have a brand new Lilla Rose Flexi Clip hairclip.  The design style is the Mighty Celtic Knot.  It is a size small, which is the most common size for a ponytail with fine hair.  Might make a nice stocking stuffer for a teen girl.

The children's book I have available are - 


Pet Babies by Charles Reasoner (board book)

Toy Story 2 Scrub Bubble Bath Book "Woody's Roundup"

Quack Says the Duck (fabric book with plastic handle)

Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown (board book)

Five Silly Monkeys by Steve Haskamp

Sesame Street "Where is Elmo's Blanket?" (lift the flap book)

Winnie the Pooh "How Do You Hop So High?" (Thinking Spot Series - 1 Animal Talents)

Winnie the Pooh "Why Don't Things Fall Up?" (Thinking Spot Series - 3 Gravity)


I would say they're all good for newborns through age 3, with the Winnie the Pooh books going up to age 5-6 since they have learning activities in them. They're all brand new. 


I also have Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert for a teen/adult. It's like new; just a couple of pages have been dog-eared.

Maternity clothes that are for a larger lady--possibly still working in an office.  The pants are mostly sized 14 (one is 16) and include 2-3 pairs of black, 1 tan and 2 jeans with a full panel.  I'm usually petite but I had a hard time finding petite maternity clothing.  But I don't remember this being the bane of my existence.  The shirts are all XL and are a mix of "obviously for the office", "obviously casual" and "in between".  I think there are maybe 8-10 shirts.  Oh--and an unopened pair of Motherhood pantyhose, firm support, "pale nude"

I have the following to share:


1.  A plush My Banky snuggly blanket, looks just like the one in this link:  http://www.addoway.com/viewad/MY-BANKY-White-Pink-Dottie-DOG-Baby-Blanket-565905  it doesn't have tags, but has never been used.


2.  3-4 (might find more) hand knitted baby/toddler blankets.  All made for my kids but not used, mostly more girl-type colors


3. journals:  1 beautiful embossed leather journal (lined); new

                              1 leather journal with pretty abstract pattern on cover (lined), new


4.  Hanukkah board books and books for young kids (probably good for ages 0-3?) not sure how many until I dig out the Hanukkah box later this week, but I can at least make sure there is one for each kid in a family.  If the family wants, I can also include some beautiful Hanukkah candles (enough for all 8 nights) and maybe some other related stuff... not sure what made it into the box at the end of last year!


5.  three games that seem to be for a Gameboy (one says that it is only for the gameboy color system).  I don't have a gameboy, so I have no way to be 100% sure that these work, but I'm hoping they do and that someone can use them!  the games are: Star Wars Episode I Racer (rated E); Pokemon Pinball (rated E); Perfect Dark (rated Teen).


6. one game for a V-smile (V-tech) hand held game system: Alphabet Park Adventure (letters, alphabetical order, objects, shapes, phonics, vocab, colors)


7.  Taggie security blankey, probably about 18" square


8.  8 Ty brand plush girl dolls (are similar to the Groovy Girls that seem to be popular with the 5-9 year old set); all are unplayed with and most have tags.


9.  Infant toy: plush bunny rabbit probably about 8 inches high, tag says "My Natural".  It isn't the EXACT same as the one in this link, but is very, very similar. New without tags.  http://www.livingtextiles.com/shop/item/1535775


10.  I haven't made this yet, but I'd be happy to put together a sort of craft grab-bag for a child.  My girls are between the ages of 1 and 6, and I'd be going through their things to share what we have, so the things would probably be best for younger children. 


Just found one more thing to add tonight:


11.  4 DVDs:  Bob the Builder, Bob's Favorite Adventures- opened but not watched yet.

                     Brainy Baby (like Baby Einstein), Shapes and Colors (ages 1-4) still in the plastic wrap

                     Baby Einstein: Baby Beethoven Symphony of Fun (used but great shape)

                     Baby Einstein: Baby Van Gogh (used by great shape)


12.  gently used CDs:  Joan Osborne, Righteous Love

                                 Tori Amos, To venus and Back (2 cd set)

                                 Monumental Classics Volumes I, 3 and 4 (sorry, haven't found volume 2 yet but will include it if I find it!)


13.  Official PC South Park game, rated Mature.  My husband says this is an older game, but maybe someone will want it! On the back it says it needs Windows 95/98... I don't know enough about computers to know if it will work with later versions, but hopefully the person who wants it will know!

I have available:


1. 13 board books of the "Disney Babies" series.  They have been read so the binding looks a little bent, but they're in good shape.

2. 3 Baby Einstein board books (Puzzling Shapes, What Does Violet See?, Mama and Me).  Again, they have been read so the binding is a little bent.

3. 2 Baby Einstein DVDs (World Animals, Baby Wordsworth).  Have been opened, but never watched.

From a Holiday Helper:




I am offering up 2 hand crocheted 'lap' sized blankets. These are great for using on the couch or can be 'kid' sized. The will not fit and cover a bed. They are somewhere between 48*48 and 60*60.


I have 2 blankets so that's 1 blanket per family.

These are made with red heart quality yarn so they have acrylic in them.


I will be shipping around December 1st.


*please let me know if you want pink or no pink in the blanket. Thanks



Contact TiredX2 for details.

I'm not sure if this is helpful or not, but I thought I'd offer them here first. I have 26 newborn sized Huggies Swaddlers diapers. They're leftover from the last package I bought my son; he's grown into the size ones now. Not sure if they can be sent to someone since they're not in a package, but if they can I'd be glad - every little bit helps with diapers!

2) 2 sets hand knitted (not by me) hat and scarf sets. The 1st is a marled brown color, suitable for male or female, and probably sized for an older child. The 2nd is a marled blue color (also gender neutral) and either older child or adult size.

4) Size 3M sleeper, girl-this has a small hole in one toe that should be easily fixed with a stitch or 2

6) Size 12 M Holiday red fleece sleeper with holiday candy on it, probably more girly

7) The following size 12M clothes, all girly:
blue and purple sweater

Dark pink pants
Turquoise short sleeve shirt

I have an unopened box of 468 Wikki Stix. Looks like this:  http://www.wikkistix.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=5&products_id=66


I wouldn't recommend these for families with children under 3 years old. Can be choking hazards. Fun and creative for an older child though. smile.gif
