The shopping cart requires you to have cookies enabled on your browser. When you enter the shopping cart for the first time or from a different computer, log-in and registration options are available – please note that visitors can browse the shop without registering any details.
If you enter the shop as a Visitor and choose to order products as you are browsing, your order will be stored in a temporary cart until you register your contact details at the check out. If you don’t proceed through the checkout the items will be deleted when you leave the shop.
Once you register your details you become a registered member and will be given a Members Cart whenever you log in. This allows you to add products to your shopping cart, and come back at a later date to finalize your checkout. All the products remain in your shopping cart until you have checked them out, or removed the products from your cart. Please note that products will not be reserved for you until you have been through the complete checkout process.

Please note that items that are out of stock cannot be ordered or paid for. If you inadvertently order a larger quantity of an item than we have in stock, a notification will appear requesting that you modify the quantity. Please note that all of the Cuddly-Bub range of products are currently available on an In-Stock basis only. Some of the new products that we are now offering for sale are made to order by other businesses. These products will have a higher quantity available (which allows you to order them), and the time frame to allow is indicated in the product description. If you have ordered In-Stock and Made to Order items, they will all be shipped at the same time. In most cases this will still be within our normal 28 day shipping time, but as it will depend on demand, this cannot be guaranteed. If you require In-Stock and Made to Order items to be shipped separately, additional postage charges will apply.
Please note that In Stock items cannot be held indefinitely. Payment is required within 14 days of the order date to avoid the items being re-listed for sale.
