Bonnie when I was a little girl a friend of my grandmother's gave me an old wicker dolls pram, even as a little girl I loved it and felt honoured it was given to me but it had to live at my grandmother's home (for various practical reasons) but I knew even then it was mainly so I'd have some thing to play with at my grandma's and even then I think I knew if it came home to live at my house I'd lose interest in it straight away and not make use of it? (pretty sure I would have been told this too).
I tend to think the dictionary and stand is best left in your home for now for the reasons you initially presented, that you gain great joy see your grand children rushing to use it, its an actively for them at your home - its a win win for all.
I still have the pram and can't say my daughter when young appreciated that much, again maybe because she had access to it all the time by then? Or maybe I've been too precious about it because I was raised to be that way? - which leads us back to the whole de-cluttering of emotional items. . . . . Its one of those items its hard to know what to do with now?
It is very good to be able to discuss this topic in an open forum.

houscom -- thank you for your advice about the dictionary and stand. Thinking about it after reading your experience with the doll's pram puts it into perfect focus.
