Instructibles is a "Goodthing"

I thinks its easy to see the potential, especially when it enspires young minds to create. There's no way or reason to ever put a price on creativity. It's in my best interest to make something special. I'm not in the position to donate and this where I'm hoping to get some help to work out the logistics. The parts have been in storage long enough it's time to get these parts to an assembly.

There is 25 feet of shelves packed with over 150 "banker boxes" of sorted, bagged and organized wooden toy parts. I don't know if the amount of inventory can be understood with a brief description and pics..... This is a moving truck size load.

The idea is a more of a "Goodthing."
The potential is to make more then money from pieces and parts.
The resources needed to inspire endless possibilities and make something to share in the wealth creativity.

Thank you for the ideas and input.

Ebay or craigslist might need a fee and you are dealing with random people. You might want to contact one of the editors at Make magazine with an offer and a rough estimate of the actual inventory on hand. They are trying to launch educational initiatives and might have a need. Maybe contact the technology/kids museums in the area to see if they have any programs that might want to purchase craft supplies.

I will contact Make and I've posted on CL with no response as this to be consistent with several other posting, I've expected to attract some interest. I'm not trying to profit....cover some expenses.
Thank you!

Ah, if you were to "donate" these parts: Contact various schools/daycare/scouts/churches that have afterschool programs. I think they would be interested in having "build a toy" activities. It seems that glue is all that is needed for the precut parts. I used to take my daughter to the big box home improvement stores on Saturdays for the kid's build from the free kits they gave out.

There are some hackerspaces or design schools that might want to get hold of the parts. There is one that does a pinewood derby thing at Maker Faire. Good luck.

I'm not sure I understand your question - are you asking what to make, how to make money, or just how to make folk happy with your stash?
