Take a look at our categories and find out what our members have to offer. We're sure there's something for everyone, so go ahead and take a look for yourself. Enabling families to swap and share pre-loved children's sports, hobby, tech and musical equipment is our passion.
Browse our categories to view the pre-loved items our members have that they wish to re-purpose.
Register, become a member and upload the pre-loved items your children no longer need – there are no listing fees so add as many as you wish. Choose your trade option:
• Straight swap • Earn kidd3rkredits • Sell now for £
Our members can earn kidd3rkredits our exclusive kidd3r community currency by re-purposing their pre-loved kit. Decide on the value of kidd3kredits you would like to receive for your pre-loved item and once the trade is complete, the kidd3rkredit value will be added to your member account. Once added either spend or retain the kidd3rkredits in your personal member account to redeem at a later date. It is a useful way to save for those high value items.
**You acknowledge that kidd3rkredits are not real or virtual currency or any type of financial instrument and are not redeemable for any sum of money from kidd3r at any time.
We all have experienced those times when your child needs some urgent kit. If you do not have sufficient value of kidd3kredits in your account or an item to swap but have seen an item you like our members benefit from being able to purchase additional kidd3rkredits via Paypal.
When purchased through Kidd3r these will be added to your account immediately. If our member has chosen the payment preference sell now they wish to be paid directly in £ rather than kidd3rkredits so please contact them to arrange payment using our messaging facility.
Details agreed? Our members confirm delivery arrangements and payment for delivery charges if required between themselves securely via our member messaging service.
Our vision of environmentalism is refresh, reuse, relove.
Give your pre-loved item a new lease of life. List your item in the relevant category and enable another child to afford the activity they love.
Browse the categories for an item your child may need now or in the future. New does not necessarily have to mean brand new. Source gently used, pre-loved, kit for a smart sustainable solution.
Spend the kidd3rkredits you earn from recycling your family's kit on an item your child needs now or save them in your member account to redeem at a later date.
Swapping is a great way to exchange hobby kit your child no longer uses for something they need. Simply upload your pre-loved item and search the ‘swap’ listings. Every kidd3r swap helps a child to find a new passion while utilising items that may otherwise go to landfill.FAQs
Just want to repurpose (not swap) your old hobby kit? No problem, simply sell your item instead. You set the price and your preferred payment option - either kidd3rkredits (our community currency) or £s (via PayPal). All we ask is that the item is in good condition.FAQs
Don't have anything to swap but seen something you like? You can still pick-up pre-loved hobby kit on Kidd3r simply by buying it second hand. Just message the seller, via our direct messaging service, to agree a price and payment type. If they choose kidd3rkredits, you can either use kidd3rkredits earned from your previous trades or additional kidd3rkredits can be purchased from your Kidd3r account area using PayPal.FAQs
Kidd3r is an amazing concept - offering families the triple benefit of saving money, reducing household clutter, and saving the planet! Buying new kit every time a child takes up a new hobby is not a wise use of our planet’s limited resources, especially when most new purchases come wrapped in single-use plastic packaging. Joining Kidd3r to swap pre-loved items is a brilliant way to reduce your environmental impact and make a positive difference for the next generation.

I was fortunate enough to have Irish danced from the age of four. After competing for over 12 years, winning Great Britain, All Ireland and World Championship medals, I was invited to join Michael Flatley's Irish dance troupe, Lord of The Dance. For 10 years I toured the world as Principal dancer, performing in stadiums, arena's and theatres. I was also lucky enough to have performed with his latest show, Celtic Tiger.
Offering a service to swap sports and hobby kit is such a fantastic facility; helping parents to save money whilst at the same time helping to sustain a healthy environment. For those less fortunate it provides access to uniform in order to continue their sports/dance activities, giving all children the opportunity to enjoy their passion. If only we had such a supportive service growing up!

I’m mum to Harry aged 13 and Lottie aged 7. Between them they have enjoyed many hobbies and activities including football, gymnastics and ballet to name but a view! Juggling a hectic work life balance is not easy and I was seeking a quick, easy solution to finding and funding all of their extra kit. Kidd3r has proved invaluable, saving our family money and time all whilst doing our bit for the planet. Many of my friends are interested in joining the kidd3rcommunity, why buy when you can swap?
