I have gotten rid of boxes of merch and still have a box of $250 or so worth to get rid of. And that's while keeping a stack of towels and some other items, toys shirts and whatnot
I don't think you have to pretend. You talk to him. Tell him honestly that you appreciate his generosity and him sharing his passion with the kids, but that all of the actual "stuff" is overwhelming for the house and your plan is to rotate things out when new things come in. You can even find some charity or something the accepts items like these if you look hard enough, right? Just be up front.
