By selecting a date for delivery on our site, you are letting us know your preferred delivery date which we will regard as an estimated delivery date.
We make every effort to deliver goods within the estimated timescales, however delays are occasionally inevitable due to unforeseen factors. Activity Toys Direct shall be under no liability for any delay or failure to deliver the products within estimated timescales.
We will advise you of the estimated delivery date of your goods by e-mail prior to shipping. Please ensure someone is available to receive your order at the nominated address. Failed deliveries will be returned to the depot to await further instructions. In this situation, the cost of depot return and redelivery may be charged within any credit due or prior to re-delivery. Please note we do NOT offer timed delivery slots. All UK deliveries will take place between 9.00am-6.00pm Monday to Friday. You can add notes in the customer comments to leave the goods safe at your own risk.
Risk of loss or damage of products passes to you on the date when the products are delivered to you or are left with a person or at a place nominated by you. For the purposes of proof of delivery only, where you accept delivery personally, our delivery driver may ask either for your signature or may take a photograph of the products at a distance with your door open, which may include images of you.
Products are provided for personal, domestic and private use only.
If we reasonably believe that you are buying products from us with the intention of reselling them or in circumstances where it appears that bulk buying, reselling, drop-shipping or repeated orders for the same item/s are occurring, we may:
- refuse to accept your order; or
- cancel your order; or
- accept your order subject to agreeing additional or alternative terms with you (see below); and

- Consumer rights to cancel the contract within 14 days shall not apply;
- If the products are faulty or misdescribed, you may return them to us within 7 days. Where you use our returns service, you shall be charged the postage or other cost of returning any products to us (even where those products are faulty or misdescribed).

In the event that we are unable to supply the goods, where we have made a mistake, or we have processed your order in breach of these terms and conditions, we will inform you of this as soon as possible.

Due to the quick turnaround of orders, we are unable to amend an order once it has been placed. Customers must ensure they check their order carefully before submitting it.
Please note that you are entitled to cancel your contract with us, if you so wish, provided that you exercise your right and notify us no longer than 14 working days after the day on which you received the Products.
If you wish to exercise your right to cancel this contract, we will refund the original purchase price and delivery charge, provided that you have notified us in writing no longer than 14 working days after the day on which you received the Products, that you have taken reasonable care of the Products and they remain unused and unopened as outlined above.

You do not have the right to change your mind if the product has been; opened and set up, used in any way, cannot be returned as new / as received with all original packaging in its original form.

Customers using their own couriers / postal services will need to ensure goods are received by us no later than 14 days from the date of the original cancellation date.
SATB will not take any responsibility for damaged or lost items by 3rd party carriers or their partners. The ownership & responsibility of any item / items being returned by the customer will remain their responsibility until the item has been signed for by one of our warehouse team. We strongly recommend that customers insure any item they are returning to us to cover for any eventuality.
If you cannot arrange for the goods to be returned to us, we can arrange a collection service. This service operates outside of the sale of goods contract and will be treated as a separate transaction.
This service can be used for any of our products, but the cost will be quoted to you based on the size and weight of the item. This price will be quoted to you by email or in writing prior to any agreement to uplift and must be accepted by return email or in writing. You will be given the option to make a separate payment for this collection service or agree to have the cost of the service deducted from any refund issued. Please note that collections are made Monday to Friday 9.00am to 5.00pm. The collection date we give you will be one that our couriers have agreed to, however, we cannot accept any liability for couriers or any 3rd party not collecting as we have instructed. If you have any reservations about waiting in or non-collection, we recommend you use a service of your own for the return of unwanted products.
If we attempt a collection and you are not home, we will have to rearrange a new collection which may incur an additional charge which we will inform you about prior to rearranging a new collection. We reserve the right to inspect the goods and deduct a reasonable amount from any refund issued if we deem the item has not been returned as new, does not contain all original packaging in its original form, has been assembled and cannot be resold as new, or has been used and is not suitable for resale.
Faulty items and repairs
In most cases the manufacturer of an item can resolve issues with a faulty item. In the unlikely event that your product is faulty, you must notify our customer service department by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or in writing.
You will be asked to provide a detailed description of the fault or an image / images of the fault for us to pass on to the product manufacturer. Sending this information and images with your initial request will help us process your enquiry quicker.
We will arrange for replacement parts to be sent out to you from the manufacturer if we feel that this is appropriate. Full replacements will only be sent if we and/or the manufacturer agrees this is the best course of action. If we are unable to send out parts or a replacement we will offer a refund to the value paid for the product and associated delivery charges paid by the customer.
The above measures are subject to the timeframes outlined in the Consumer Rights Act. More details of your statutory rights can be obtained by requesting or downloading a copy of the Consumer Rights Act.
We aim to process all refunds as quickly as possible. During our busy seasons (April through to June & October through to December) please allow up to 7 working days for refunds and replacements to be processed. All refunds will be made using the same payment method where goods were purchased in store and using the same card used to place the order online.
The customers' statutory rights are not affected.
Please note that the time taken to process a refund may vary depending on your bank or credit card provider. In our experience, it can take up to 7 days. This processing time is completely outside of our control and any delay is not on the part of SATB Ltd
