expired trade

So I did a trade with a mama. I sent her diapers and she sent me some things she made along with some baby shampoo and toddler toothpaste. Well the shampoo and toothpaste expired in 2008! WWYD?

The trade value she assigned to them was $8. I think it would probably be $4+ to ship it back to her. I don't think she has any paypal. But it also seems silly to ask her to send one of the diapers back to me (worth about $8) when it would cost her $2+ to ship it.

I didn't ask when they expired, but I also didn't think someone would sell something THAT old... especially since they were about retail value... I just did it to help her get more diapers and they were things I'd buy at the store anyways.

What would you do in this situation? And do you think they are safe to use? I think I might use the shampoo if it was for me, but I wouldn't want to use it on my baby. And I definitely don't want my baby or toddler swallowing toothpaste that expired 5 years ago!
