The popular Babies R Us trade-in is back and better than ever.

The event — in which customers can trade in outdated baby items like car seats and high chairs in exchange for store discounts — runs from Feb. 16 through March 18 in Babies R Us and Toys R Us stores, though parents who participate in the chain's loyalty program will have access to the event as early as Feb. 11.

From Feb. 16 through March 18, Babies R Us and Toys R Us stores will be holding their annual trade-in event.

In a post to the Toys R Us blog, the store announced that the event, formerly called the Great Trade-In, will now be known as the Greater Trade-In, promising better discounts and a wider variety of trade-able items.

"This year, we’ve added clothing to the Greater Trade-In event in addition to gear and furniture," reads the post. "Babies R Us and Toys R Us are working with local charities across the country to help clothe children in need."

Every gently used clothing item traded will be donated to these charities, and customers will receive a 25% discount on new clothing purchases.

So what else is greater about the Greater Trade-In?

Customers can trade crib and toddler mattresses, too.

Trading in baby items from the specified list, which includes play yards, strollers and bassinets, earns you a 25% discount on purchases made in Babies R Us or Toys R Us stores. Using an R Us credit card gets you 30% off.

Have nothing to trade? The stores say all customers will receive 15% off certain items both in store and online during the event.
