dvd or vhs

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
ok... like i said we are in the process of moving... we have an elaborate collection of kids dvd's vhs... some duplicates.. my kids dont watch regular tv for the most part...
ds 10 dd 8 ds 5 dd3 dd8 mos and twins due soon...

should i keep the vhs or sell them? the dvd's are much easier to use... find a special scene etc... however vhs are more kid friendly... dvd's take up much less space...

we have entire collections of 'the wiggles. bob the builder, elmo, magic school bus, bananas in pj's" etc....not to mention almost every disney movie on the planet...(cartoon type)....

we have holiday movies... i hate to get rid of those because they are special shows but honestly they are watched 2-3x year??

I'm not sure how great the market for used VHS tapes is... You may not get enough money to make it worth your while. It may be better to donate them to a thrift store or something. We have people constantly pawning off their old VHS tapes on us. Do you know someone who could use them?

We switched to dvd only when our vcr broke (we just didn't replace it). Dvds are smaller; we keep them in a couple of binders (except for box sets). Kids can handle them--my 6.5 year old is quite adept and even the almost 3 year old has learned not to touch the silver side.

Some kid vhs goes for decent prices on ebay; otherwise, perhaps find a local charity that helps kids to donate them to.

We prefer DVDs. We're planning to donate our VHS tapes to the library.

Maybe you can copy your vhs tapes to DVD so that you don't miss them?

I put all of our Christmas movies, books and music in a seperate rubbermaid box and store them with the Christmas stuff. The rest of our holiday/seasonal books and media I store in a clear box on a closet shelf so that I can rotate them as needed.

When we switched to DVDs, my local library won't accept VHS tapes, took up too much shelf space

We use both still as we have a dual vhd/dvd machine. I also still buy vhs tapes at video stores. I say, hang onto what ever the kids watch now/you anticipate the twins wanting to watch and just eliminate as your youngest outgrow them. I don't, personally, see the point in ditching a working vhs tape if you're going to want to replace it with a dvd.
