    Great points
    I found so many brand new baby toys and clothing items at garage sales. Tags were still on, some were still gift wrapped. The babies grow so fast, you can easily miss the window where the outfits would of fit. And then you discover quickly that the cutest outfits are difficult to get the baby in and out of.
    Whether second hand or purchased, make a habit of checking where the toys or clothing were made. pjs may or may not have fire retardant, toys that babies chew on should not be painted and beware potential choking hazards.
