Terms & Conditions

Making A Purchase

Making a purchase could not be easier. Just browse our store, and add any items that you wish to buy into the shopping cart. After you have finished your selection, click on ‘Checkout’ and you will be asked for a few details that we need to be able to complete the order.

We accept Visa, MasterCard. We do not charge for any item until it is ready to ship. Backordered items are not charged until they are shipped. If you do not wish to pay online, you may send your card information via phone, fax or by post. Please note Paypal payments are immediate.

If you have made a mistake in your order and cannot correct it in the shopping cart, contact us and we will correct the mistake.

When confirmation of your order is received, this is to indicate that we have received your order. It does not indicate that a contract exists between us. We will indicate acceptance of your order, and hence a contract between us, when we send you an invoice upon shipping.

We have included this term to protect us in the case that a mistake has been made in pricing, i.e. we have inadvertently under-priced goods, or we are no longer able to supply a particular product for some reason. In the case of a change of price, we will always contact you first to ensure that the price is acceptable.

Please note products may vary from pictured due to hand finishing etc, library pictures are used on our web as supplied by manufacturer, sizes are generally tip to toe, so for bears sitting they around around 2/3 of the size. Items are handmade so airbrushing, stuffing, finishing, looks, colour etc can vary, as welll as tags, bows, swing tags and labels. if you are after a specific face look, or type of tag, we are more than happy to take a photo on request of the actual item to be shipped.

When your bundle of fluff arrives please feel free to shake the fur, and pose as required, as after the journey will need some love.


Orders made by businesses are deemed final and cannot be returned. As a small business we get too many companies ordering products that are then returned after use, as such we do not offer this for business to business sales.
