Beggers can't be choosers

"The Salvation Army is taking donations of unwrapped gifts for families in need this Christmas - but they'd rather they weren't second hand.
Blenheim Salvation Army community ministries co-ordinator Bridget Lauder said every child deserved a new toy on Christmas Day.
"Just because someone isn't coping and can't provide Christmas gifts doesn't mean they should get leftovers," she said..."

What colour is the sky on your planet?

Nothing wrong with good second hand stuff. I buy it all the time.
Most kids don't give a damn- they just like the toys.

Is this to appease some damn do-gooders guilt trip?

Of course it is. Most giving is to make the giver feel good about themselves.
We know somebody with a couple of young boys, and you're right, they don't care if toys are secondhand, they just enjoy them.
