Faulty items

Within 30 days, a customer has the right to return something for a full refund if it is poor quality, faulty, not as described or unfit for purpose.

After 30 days, we are entitled to offer a repair or a replacement before we refund.

If a fault is discovered within 6 months (and after 30 days) of purchase, it is assumed that the fault has always been there.

The retailer may offer a repair or replacement before a refund.

No deductions can be made from a refund in the first 6 months.

After 6 months, the customer must prove that the fault was there when the toy was bought.
