Cancelling an order
You may cancel an order by contacting us via email or order messaging, however if it’s already been dispatched or we cannot stop the shipment from leaving, then you will need to wait to receive the goods and then arrange return according to our Returns Policy (below) Please note that in some cases, such as large wooden toys, such as dollhouses, kitchens, playsets and furniture, as per our returns policy, we do not accept change of mind returns.
Please Note that cancellations that were paid for via credit card or PayPal, will incur a 2% - 3% refund processing fee. Cancellations for Afterpay orders will incur a 7% cancellation fee, which will be removed from the total refunded.
If you’ve notified us of the cancellation request after a shipment for the order has already been booked and we are still able to stop the shipment from leaving, then we can refund you the cost of the goods, but not the shipping cost, since we are not able to retrieve the shipping fees from our carrier once a consignment has been released for pickup. This accords with our returns policy for returning goods due to change of mind.
Dispatch & Delivery
Dispatch times may vary, the usual dispatch times are 2-3 business days. These times are subject to an increase during the months leading up holidays seasons, such as October - December which may cause delays in dispatch.
Delivery is available on all products listed for sale and purchased online. All website orders are fulfilled by our warehouses located in NSW or by Supplier Direct Delivery.
Orders containing multiple items from different brands may be dispatched from different warehouses and may arrive in separate packaging and on different days.
You will be notified by email within 24 hours once your order has been dispatched. We deliver using a variety of couriers. Delivery is available to all mainland Australia and Tasmania and there is no exclusion based on delivery location, some remote areas may incur an extra surcharge on top of the website calculated shipping fee.
When you place an order from us we trust the delivery address you have provided is correct. If there are any issues with delivery to your destination due to a mistake with the address you have entered and the courier delays the delivery of the item or returns the item to sender, we do not take responsibility for this and we will have to charge you the shipping cost again to have your parcel re-delivered or redirected. If you want to change your delivery address after a booking has already been made you will have to pay a redirection fee which is usually the same cost as the original shipping fee.
