DELIVERY ~ the exciting bit…

Thank you for placing an order or checking things through before committing to buying from us, we really appreciate your custom and time. As this is a delivery for a very important little one, we will lovingly pick and inspect the toy before preparing it for dispatch. All orders will have the box carefully lined in our beautiful, branded tissue paper and sealed with a little logoed sticker. You’ll also find a short hand-written ‘Thank You’ card inside from myself and my son for supporting our family business. We also use recycled packaging where at all possible – just doing our bit for the environment.

How much is delivery?
• We offer FREE delivery on all orders £100 and more.
• For orders less than £100, then a £3.95 delivery charge will be added to your bill.

Can you include a card?
• Absolutely – yes. We understand that we can’t always get to see our loved ones in person, so if you would like me to hand-write the card for you, then I would be delighted to do so. You just need to purchase a card then write your message in the ‘Order Notes’ box during checkout, and I will happily hand-write the card for you, seal it and include it with the parcel free of charge.
