Recycling potties and toddler toilet seats. Charity shop or recycle the plastic?

I know it's a silly question but would you buy a used potty or toddler trainer toilet seats from a charity shop?

I'm clearing cupboards and all the cot stuff such as bumpers, blankets, throws can be donated/ reused.

But, I'm wobbling about throwing away perfectly clean and useable toilet training stuff into the recycling bin.

After all it can be bought for only a few pounds new. But I'm concerned about all the manufacturing that has already been wasted on the potty, as it has removable parts, a lid and a liftable seat. And my DM had bought it from a charity shop herself, as a spare at their house, but it soon became a favourite and moved to our house.

Donate or recycle?

I actually meant donate. Sorry. For me I view donating as recycling as things get another life. Lol. I confused myself there grin

Yes I would. What about giving them to the women's refuge? They always need baby things.
