Join 100,000+ parents using YoungPlanet to find and give secondhand children’s things for FREE.
Available across the UK.
Most of the things our children want are sat in someone else’s cupboard or loft
not being used. According to The British Heart Foundation, children have an
average of four toys they’ve never even played with – which could add up to as
many as 162 million unused toys in the UK.
So we don't need new; we need to get things moving
Helping parents declutter, give joy & save the planet, YoungPlanet is an app that
enables parents to put no-longer-used children's things to good use with new
families and away from landfill.

Issue the keyboard coming up when on login page
Went through registration, clicked the link to verify my email but when it takes me through to the login page now the keyboard doesn’t appear when you click in the email or password fields so I can’t access.
Great sustainability initiative
Super idea from the founders. Also a fabulous way of cutting the hassle of taking our second hand items to the charity shop - impossible during Covid. Great to have people come and pick items up from the house, especially when juggling twins. Brilliant contribution to the baby products circular economy. Share your items - be kind!
Just what I’ve been waiting for
Brilliant app that has helped me pass on so many things my kids have grown out of to other families. It is so easy to use, I’ve met some lovely people through it and they’re always happy to get something they need for free while I’m always happy to keep something out of landfill. Win win!
