Children's toys and supply giant, Toys R Us announced late last week that they're unveiling a safety incentive program.

They're hoping to entice parents to turn in their old cribs and car seats (and more) in return for 20 percent off at their stores, in hopes of making the world a little safer for our little ones.

Did you know only 30% of recall items are actually returned? Your next hand-me-down could be in danger. Details on this new incentive, after the jump...

During the "Great Trade-In" event, which began Friday, August 28 and continues through Sunday, September 20, all Babies"R"Us and Toys"R"Us locations nationwide will accept returns of any used cribs, car seats, bassinets, strollers, travel systems, play yards and high chairs in exchange for a 20% savings on the purchase of any new baby item, in any of these product categories, from select manufacturers.

If you'd like to read up on the safety concerns behind this push to keep the hand-me-down world safe for the next wave of youngsters, you can find the full rational behind the Great Trade-In event over at their website.
