DELIVERY & Returns
We kindly ask you read the following information in full if you have ordered or are looking to order:
- Due to unexpected high demands as a result of COVID-19 and the demand on logistics countrywide, there will be a delay on all orders.
- We are processing orders with safety measures in place and we apologise in advance for the delays you will experience, deliveries may now take up to 20 working days on orders placed after May 1st.
- Once your order is ready for dispatch we will provide you with a tracking number via email or SMS, using the contact details you supplied.
- Further delays may have occurred since you ordered due to courier efficiencies, who are working to high demand with a reduced staff force.
- Please note our phone lines have now been switched off as we have made the decision to protect our staff, who are now working from home, managing our email service.
- Due to a high number of enquires at this time there are extended response times to customer service queries.
- Please do not get in touch regarding your order status, especially if it has not been longer than the 20 working days outlined within this communication, our SMS and email service is designed to keep you up to date.
- If you have experienced any issues after receiving your order or have any other enquiry we will get back to you as soon as possible.
- Please note if your order arrives with any missing parts we will prioritise this enquiry and order.
- Most deliveries are made up from multiple boxes. Before getting in touch regarding a missing box on your delivery, we kindly ask you wait three working days as boxes may have been separated at courier sorting centres due to the current high volumes they are receiving. Please use your tracking link where possible.

How long will my delivery take?
We aim to deliver most item within 2 working days, next day if you place your order before midday.
Tracking information can be provided for most items; this will be sent to you by email along with your order confirmation.
Unfortunately we are unable to provide tracking information for orders sent by Royal Mail.
Do you deliver abroad?
We are able to ship selected products abroad, but we would usually expect you to cover the costs of delivery.
Unfortunately we are currently unable to ship products overseas when purchased via our website. To obtain a delivery quote, please contact us.
How will my item be delivered?
Smaller items will be delivered by Parcelforce. If you are not in, you will be carded for collection at your local post office.
Larger items are delivered by a tracked courier service, due to the size these items will be returned to the depot if you're not able to take delivery.
Our very largest products (complete playgrounds and playhouses) will be palletised and require booking in on a specific date for delivery. You will be contacted in advance to arrange the delivery; please ensure that you are able to receive the delivery on that day.
A small number of our spare parts are sent by Royal Mail. Unfortunately we are unable to provide tracking details for these items.
What should I look out for?
Many of our larger items are delivered in several parts, this is because of the sizes and weights of the products.
Your order may include parts such as:
Wood packs: These are the packs that make up the wooden parts to your toy. They are constructed and packaged very carefully so that no parts should fall out.
Hardware box: The hardware box contains the nuts, bolts and screws necessary to build your toy. It may also contain accessories such as swing seats and climbing ropes. On most items the hardware box also contains the all-important assembly instructions!
On some of our smaller play centres the hardware may be contained inside the wood pack.
Slide: If your toy has one, this will arrive as a separate component.
Where your item is expected to be delivered in parts, we will let you know on your delivery tracking exactly what to look out for. We don’t currently allow our couriers to make part deliveries, so all parts of your toy should be delivered at the same time.
There is a problem with my delivery. What should I do?
If you believe that something is missing or damaged from your delivery, please contact us as soon as possible.
