Trade Information

Trade Centre

Toy Traders has a unique concept, in which you can trade-in your new and used items for an in-store credit. With the in-store credit you can purchase new or used product. Traded-in items are checked over carefully to ensure safety and then they are thoroughly cleaned. These items have a 30 day warranty with receipt.

Trading Toys

Items may be brought to the Trade Centre Monday-Saturday: 10-5pm, located to the right of the main entrance. There is no appointment necessary and the average trade completion time is 5 to 30 minutes. While you browse the store, the Trade Staff will calculate a value based on the condition of the items (this includes cleanliness and completeness). Once a value has been calculated, you will receive an in-store credit in the form of Trader Bucks. Trader Bucks have no expiry date and are tax-free. Trader Bucks are fully transferrable and make for a great gift or charitable donation.
