I have a couple rubbermaids full of toys that I would donate if I could find the other parts. I feel guilty throwing them away but I don't have time to locate every part (maybe I already threw the other part away? ) Anyway - I would love to start with a clean slate. Is it awful to just throw this stuff away?

I throw away broken toy parts when I find them.

If you're really having a rough time with it, offer the lot on Freecycle. Maybe somebody else will have the patience to put toy pieces together, or might have matching parts from a different toy that would work?

I would personally freecycle first and if it doesn't get picked up within the week, toss them! I do the same thing but I was going crazy! Gotta get rid of it!

Well, I tossed them. : I would have freecycled but we have a new internet filter and it wouldn't let me go to Yahoo to turn on my acct. Well, I feel guilty and relieved all at the same time.
