Brands we stock
We regularly stock from over 40 brands. Most can be seen on our Brands webpage.
Orders from outside Australia
We accept orders made outside of Australia. However, the order has to be delivered to an Australian address. We do not ship outside of Australia.
If the whole order is a gift, we can wrap the ordered items with tissue papers or similar kind, and include a handwritten message. If you wish to take up this offer, please request gift wrapping and/or your message in the comment box (located on the bottom right-hand side of the checkout page).
What does Limited Stock mean
Magenta circle with the text 'Limited Stock' in an item's product description means that there is low stock level for the item and, we are unable or will not be re-stocking the item. This could be due to a few reasons, such as it is being discontinued by us or has been discontinued by the supplier.
How to tell if an item is out-of-stock
We only sell toys or books that we have in-stock, except for the KidKraft range. "Notify Me when back in Stock" button will appear for out-of-stock items when you hover over the item. When you are on the product page, "Out of Stock" text will appear under the dollar value.
KidKraft items are all shipped directly from the wholesalers and they are unable to provide real-time stock count. To avoid disappointments, we will mark applicable items as out-of-stock when KidKraft advises us of low stock quantity.
Should an inventory error occur, we will contact you within 2 business days, to find out how you wish to proceed - wait for new stock to arrive, substitute if possible or, cancel & refund your purchase.
Orders where payment have been pending for over 5 business days, will be cancelled unless an alternative period has been agreed upon. From November to December, this period will be reduced to 2 business days.
All transactions are processed in Australian dollars.

Paypal - Not redirected to PayPal to make payment after pressing 'Confirm Purchase' button
This occasionally happens to some folks. We have attempted to resolve this issue; however, as there are no known commonality and the small number of occurrences, we have yet to identify the root cause. If you do encounter this problem, please contact us and we will send you a manual PayPay invoice. No need to advise order details, our system will have the details.
Paypal - Can't select the Pay Now button, or it does not appear
This issue has been raised with Paypal. Unfortunately, they have not been able to isolate the bug without screen-shots and further details. Should this occur, we will attempt to contact you, to see if you wish to still proceed. If so, payment can be completed via Paypal Invoice or over the phone. Meanwhile, we are working to implement another Credit Card payment method.
