Returns and Exchanges
PLEASE CONTACT US PRIOR TO RETURNING ANY ITEMS.
In cases of all returns or exchanges, please contact us by telephone or e-mail as soon as possible after receipt of your order, prior to returning any items.
It's really important to us that you're entirely happy with your purchase....
So please do take a moment to check that the age suitability, care instructions and dimensions meet your needs, when making your choice. All of this information is included within each toy's description. We do carefully check the items in your order prior to despatch, to the best of our ability and within the limitations of not interfering with manufacturers packaging.
Sending goods back
When returning items to us, we strongly recommend that you ask the Post Office or other carrier, to provide you with proof of postage, just in case the parcel goes astray, as we're unable to give refunds or exchanges for returns which don't reach us. Similarly, we can't reimburse for returns which have been damaged during their journey back to us, if the damage is clearly due to the item(s) being inadequately or inappropriately re-packaged for the return journey back to us.
Our Returns address is:
The Organic Toy Company Ltd
63 Ramsgate Road
Faulty, damaged or incorrectly sent goods
In the unlikely event that you should receive an item which is faulty or damaged, or if you've been sent an incorrect item in our error, please contact us as soon as possible by telephone or e-mail, prior to sending the item(s) back. Once we've received your return, we'll refund or exchange, whichever you prefer, to the value of the returned item(s).
If you simply change your mind about the item you've bought or you're not entirely satisfied with it, it's no problem. We'll refund or exchange to the value of the goods, provided they are returned to us in a saleable condition (see below) and within 14 days of receipt, along with proof of purchase. If you've ordered the wrong item, or change your mind about your purchase, the return postage would be at your cost. When the item(s) have been safely received by us, the value of the goods will be refunded, provided the item(s) are returned in a saleable condition.
All non-faulty items must be returned in good and saleable condition: unused, unwashed, unmarked, odour-free and with all original packaging, tags and care labels intact.
We reserve the right to refuse an "unwanted goods" return, if reasonable care hasn't been taken to keep any returned item in the same condition in which it was received, or if it's been washed, used, contains odours such as fragrances, smoke, etc, has had the tags or manufacturer's packaging removed, has been marked or is dirty or in an unsaleable condition.
Refunds can only be made by the same method of payment that was used when placing the order with us. Card refunds can only be credited to the card originally used for the transaction.
Any cash payments made in person will be refunded in cash and you will be asked to sign for receipt of this.
We reimburse your reasonable postage costs for returning faulty, damaged or incorrect items and this element of the refund will be paid by cheque as we're unable to refund back to the card more than the original transaction value. If a refund for faulty, damaged or incorrect items, relates to only part of an order, your return postage costs will be reimbursed to your card, provided the overall refund amount doesn't exceed the original transaction value.
Refunds are issued promptly on receipt of items returned in a saleable condition but please be aware that it may take up to 10 days for card refunds to appear on your account.
In cases of exchanges of items of different values, we'll first issue a refund to the value of the returned goods, including any refundable postal charges. A completely new order would then need to be placed for replacements of the returned goods.
All of the above forms part of our Terms and Conditions.
