We prioritise the processing of orders on postage paid for options (1st class tracked, Courier, 2nd class tracked on orders over free postage threshold).

We however endeavour to dispatch all orders received by 2:00pm same day* or by the day following receipt of your order (during normal opening times). Delivery usually takes between 3 and 7 working days from dispatch. You can upgrade the postage in the checkout page for faster processing of your order and delivery of your choice. See our Delivery page for more information.
* may not apply on Mondays and Peak Seasons, due to high order volumes.
My order is a gift
Many of our customers are buying gifts for lucky people. We can help with that! At the checkout there is an option to add a personalised card and/or gift wrap which also includes a personalised card. We will choose appropriate gift packing and card for your recipient, this is usually a gift bag with co-ordinating tissue paper.
Unfortunately some items are too big to gift wrap, we will let you know if this is the case (Giant Bunnies and Doll Houses are too big of our gift wrap options).
We can send direct to your recipient, saving you additional postage costs.

When an item is currently out of stock and we have more on order we give you the option to place an order for the item which will be dispatched to you when it is back in stock by the date given. If there is no date given the items are due back in stock in the next few days to a week or so. This excludes seasonal items, like Christmas, where you can pre-order, availability is usual from September.
When it says “In Stock (can be backordered) – this allows you to order more than the quantity we currently have in stock. We will order the additional quantity from the supplier.
We will dispatch your order in full when all items are in stock. If you require ‘in stock’ items to be sent straight away please place separate orders for ‘in stock’ and ‘back order/ pre-order”
You will receive a confirmation that your order is in processing. Once it has been picked and dispatched you will receive an email stating the your order has been dispatched and completed. Please check your Junk folder, as sometimes your email system may automatically file the email there.
A confirmation order will be sent to the given email address when you placed the order. Please check your Junk folder, as sometimes your email system may automatically file the email there.

Active promotional codes will be displayed here.
The discount code is only valid for orders placed online.

A voucher code may not be valid and an error message will appear at the checkout. Also:

From time to time we will offer new customer promotional codes – these promotion codes entitle you, at the time of ordering, to a saving on a new customer order placed via the website.
We reserve the right to decline orders where, in our opinion, a promotion code is invalid.
Promotion codes are only valid on specific products, while stocks last and may be withdrawn at any time.
Only one voucher code can be used per order, per person.
In the event of product returns, refunds will be given for the value of the original purchase, i.e.: With applied discount. Not at the RRP of the item.
In the event of part of the order being returned, the monetary value returned will be the value of the item/s at the time of the transaction, ie: with discount applied. The promotional discount will not be applied to replacement items. If the offer is still valid at the time of making a return you should place a new order using the original promotional code.
We reserve the right to change these Terms and Conditions at any time.
