Ruh-roh, as Scooby Doo would say. Now what do I do?

Just a couple of suggestions (which I'm sure you've already thought of)
How about checking around for a charity that needs kids toys to help dispose of the excess? One of the ones that I use (here in NZ) is Womens Refuge (an organisation that helps women and kids get out of abusive relationships). The kids often arrive with nothing but what they're wearing, and some toys to keep are always welcome.
You could try a letter to inappropriate gift givers before the occasion (birthday, christmas, etc.), telling them what the kids are currently interested in & making a couple of gift suggestions. (It feels a bit cheeky, but often people really welcome ideas, when they don't get to see the kids too much). My default suggestion is always books -- as an ex-librarian I always feel you can never have too many.
If you don't get any joy -- you could always sell the item on e-bay (or the German equivalent)!

    This short piece contains some good suggestions about dietary management of chronic non-specific diarrhea.
