Shipping Costs

Our shipping vary from flat rates in Metro areas to competitive customised rates. Please see our specific shipping page for more information. Items heavier than this may offer a choice of postage options at checkout and particularly heavy parcels may attract a surcharge that is notified by email after checkout is complete. If you do accidentally select Local Pickup - East Geelong at checkout, we will be more than happy to help by sending an invoice for appropriate postage.

Delivery Timeframes and Communication

We aim to despatch your items within 1-7 business days. Our system will automatically send you an email containing relevant tracking codes for your order on despatch so that you can monitor the status of your parcel delivery at your convenience.

Domestic Shipping and Delivery

We offer free shipping on orders over $120 that are under 2kgs in weight. If the system allows free shipping on that price for bulkier items, please be aware that heavy shipping surcharges may apply after your order placement.

We do keep some Mocka items on the floor in store but most Mocka items are sent using Courier Please and most Kidkraft items are sent by private courier.

Heavy shipping surcharges may apply to bulky items particularly those being sent in the Mocka, Baghera and Kidkraft ranges where items are too heavy and rates of delivery too diverse and often too large for us to absorb or calculate for every postcode. These items are not eligible for free shipping and an invoice for any additional shipping charges will simply be sent after purchase. Please simply contact us if you would like a shipping quote on a heavier item prior to purchase.

We cannot be held responsible for transit times once orders have been despatched but have invested in premium delivery services wherever possible in an effort to ensure a good experience for our customers.

International Ordering

International orders may only be paid by Paypal to ensure we have some protection against missing items and fraud. We ship all international orders using Auspost Express Courier International which is a premium, trackable service with signature on delivery.

Out of Stock Items

We have both a retail store and warehouse space. If you see an item as available our online store that usually means we have it in stock, however there are some situations such as stock damage or theft that can interfere with this. In addition on the very rare occasion an item may sell in our retail store before it is picked for an online order. If this happens we email you as soon as the issue is discovered to give you the choice of waiting on restock, substation to an alternative product or refund. Please be understanding that we are human and from time to time error or misfortune may affect your order.

Local Pickup

We offer free local pickup from our store at 265 Myers Street, East Geelong. Not all items are eligible for this service unfortunately, and we do reserve the right to contact you and provide you with a delivery quote or opportunity to cancel your order for such items including much of our Kidkraft and Hip Kids ranges.

Heavy/Bulky Orders

On rare occasion there may be an increase in the delivery fees payable as the result of the size your order or other unforeseen circumstances. If your order is affected by a special delivery fee we will notify you to confirm your order.

Changes of Mind

We offer store credit for changes of mind made within 30 days of purchase, where the goods are in new and unused condition. Customers are responsible for any return postage costs. Please read our store policies page for more information about returns.
