Your Delivery

All orders are dispatched via couriers who deliver between the hours of 7am and 10pm Monday to Friday and on Saturday if Saturday delivery has been requested. All orders have a tracking number and require a signature. During busy periods, such as the Christmas season, delivery may be attempted slightly earlier or later than this window.

Please make sure that someone is available to take delivery of your order as we cannot be held responsible if our courier is unable to deliver your parcel(s) because there is no one available to sign for your order.

If our courier is unable to deliver your parcel because you are out, a card will be left at your delivery address advising you to collect your parcel from the depot named on the card.

If you make a special delivery request, for example Please leave next door or Please leave in the porch we cannot guarantee that our courier will follow these instructions when a signature is required. We advise against special delivery requests, in particular those asking that parcels be left in open or public areas, in porches, sheds and/or outdoors. Any such requests are entirely at your own risk and we cannot be held responsible if you do not receive your order.

Our couriers will email you and leave a card if no one is home when they have tried to deliver your order. You are responsible for coordinating your delivery with the courier if you are not home for them to deliver.  Our couriers will make 3 attempts to deliver your order. After 3 attempts you will be required to collect your order from the couriers depot. Parcels not collected within 7 days will be returned to us and there will be a charge of £7.50 for the return which will be deducted from your refund in addition to the outbound delivery charge.

Incorrect Address/Delivery Details: you are responsible for ensuring that you provide the correct address and postcode for delivery. If you make a mistake when you place your order please contact us immediately.  If our courier returns an order because you made a mistake with the address, postcode or delivery address your order willl be returned to us and the £7.50 returns charge by the courier plus the outbound postage charge will be deducted from your refund.

You must notify us in writing by email or telephone within 48 hours of receiving your order if items are missing or damaged. If your order has not been received within 7 days of placing your order please contact us so that we can have our courier firm trace the package. We cannot accept claims for missing orders more than 10 days after the date of order.

Please contact us if you have any questions about delivery or any other questions at all. We’re here to help.

If you have a particular delivery deadline, we recommend you select our Express Delivery option.

Unfortunately we do not deliver to the Channel Islands, BFPO addresses or overseas.

At WoodenToyShop.co.uk, if a toy is displayed as In Stock, then you can be sure it is in stock. If we don’t have the toy, we won’t take your money. Occasionally we discover that items have been miscounted in our warehouse and are no longer in stock. If this happens we will refund your order immediately or send you any missing item(s) as soon as we have new stock - whichever you prefer.

Our No Quibble returns policy is detailed below:

Returns Policy

At WoodenToyShop.co.uk we understand how important it is to choose the perfect toy for each child and we aim to make your shopping experience as easy and pleasant as possible. As of October 1st 2015 under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations you have the right to cancel and return your purchase, without having to give a reason, for up to 30 working days after you received your goods. However, we want you to have full confidence in all your selections so we operate a very simple yet fully flexible returns policy which incorporates the following features:

  • A full refund or exchange on all purchases: if you are not fully satisfied with any of your purchases you may return them to us within a reasonable time period (usually up to 30 days after the day of receipt) for a full refund or exchange.  We do not pay for the return postage costs but if you return an item to exchange for another item we do not charge you for shipping the new item. When returning an item please include a copy of the packing slip included with your order and write on it if you would like to exchange it or receive a refund.
  • Duty of Care. Customers have a duty of care towards all products during this time period and we advise that goods are returned with their original packaging to ensure that they are not damaged in transit. We reserve the right to reduce the sum refunded for goods which show evidence of use beyond the handling required to inspect items to ensure that they are as expected. As a rule of thumb, this means that you can inspect the goods as you would in a shop and return them in the same condition that you would expect to receive them.
  • Missing or Damaged Items: You must notify us in writing by email or telephone within 48 hours of receiving your order if items are missing or damaged. If your order has not been received within 7 days of placing your order please contact us so that we can have our courier firm trace the package. We cannot accept claims for missing orders or missing items more than 10 days after the date of order.
  • Faulty, Damaged Goods or Missing Parts -   If a part is missing from a product, or a part is damaged, then a replacement part will be sent rather than an entire new product. In such cases there is no need to return an item. If you are able to send us photographs of the fault or damage we may be able to to replace the missing or damaged parts or items without asking you to return them to us. Please contact us by email to info@woodentoyshop.co.uk regarding faulty or damaged items..
