As you can see from the below thread, there seems to be a technicality that prevents me from just using the system to offer the player with the book.
The book doesn't require the toy...but I can't offer the toy for a credit, and I'd hate to throw it away.
So, new offer: Barbie book + any other book on my shelf = free music player & the books will get shipped first class. Essentially this is now a freebie offer with 2 orders.
My 10 year old has just made the momentous decision to 86 everything Barbie from her room. I just posted the book on my shelf ( ISBN: 0794412246).

You can't request 2 credits for one book.
If you aren't willing to let it go for one credit then you should unpost it. (and actually it's not really postable)
(from the help center)
Can I offer/ask more than 1 credit for a book?
Offering to "pay" (or asking a requestor to "pay"--see below) more than "PBS price" for a book is not permitted.
Asking for more than "PBS price" for a book is considered bookselling
If this is a matter of postage cost (your book is heavy), remember that you can also request a "heavy" book with the credit you get for sending yours--so it all evens out
ETA ...I didn't mean to come off as rude or anything. I just wanted to let you know about it before you got in trouble for it. You can unpost the Barbie book and offer it as an incentive....Example....Order 3 books off my shelf and get this free Barbie Book.

The book is postable but has an additional TOY. I am offering to send the TOY for an additional credit. I will send the book for one credit, per PBS guidelines. Thanks for the heads up though.

see right here it says....
Books that require supplementary non-media materials (non-media materials cannot be sent by MediaMail)
you can't offer a toy for a credit anyways...only books....
