Reuse makes the world go round! We believe trading toys cuts down on emissions used to ship toys, packaging, and puts sturdy favorites back into rotation in the Albuquerque community – what’s not to like? Oh yeah, the price is gentle on your wallet – that’s nice, too.
Collect gently used toys from your closets, bins and storage boxes to bring to Color Wheel Toys! Make sure games & puzzles have all their pieces, playsets are complete, and that everything you bring is in good clean working/playing condition from non-smoking environments and cleaned of any pet/human hair.

- wooden train tracks and accessories & vehicles
- Lego brand bricks
- dress up clothes and accessories (no shoes)
- construction toys like blocks, Lincoln Logs & bristle blocks

At the Appointment:
We will look through your items, set aside the things we’d like to sell, and offer you a certificate for store credit for 50% of the value of the items we’ll take. You can spend the certificate that day or save it for later to use at Color Wheel Toys on new or RePlay merchandise. Easy peasy!
