What is a Pre-Order?
A pre-order is an order placed for an item which has not yet been released. The idea for pre-orders came when people found it hard to get items in stores due to their popularity. Companies then had the idea to allow customers to reserve their own personal copy, before the release, which has been a huge success. Pre-orders allow consumers to guarantee immediate shipment on release.
Prices generally rise by 10%-20% or more once the item is available so pre-ordering guarantees the lower price.
Do I Pay for my Pre-Order Upfront ?
Yes - All pre ordered items require payment in full to guarantee stock.

(Not applicable with the free postage offer)
If your order is made up of "pre orders" and "In Stock" items, your order will not be posted until your whole order placed is in stock. To combat this please order pre orders separate to in-stock orders.
If you order multiple pre-orders with different release dates, your order will not be posted until all items on the order are in stock, to combat this please order each item separately.
*Please Note - Pre-order release dates are subject to change due to Manufacture and shipping delays. We have no control over this and your order will be shipped when the product is in stock.
We ship on a first-come, first served basis, so your order will be processed and shipped in the order it was received
Every product on pre-order lists an expected arrival date. Our product department is in constant contact with our vendors to try to obtain the most up to date information possible. Once we know something has changed, we will update our listings and the information in your account.
We would all like pre-orders to show up within the expected time frame, but unfortunately the toy industry can have delays. The expected arrival date is an estimate only; there are no guarantees for exactly when pre-ordered products will arrive. No compensation can be given for pre-orders that arrive late. We don't recommend pre-ordering products as gifts or for special occasions that are time sensitive.
All updates will be announced on our social media pages, we cannot respond to individual requests for release dates.
We work hard to fill every pre-order we take, but occasionally a situation may be out of our control. If we cannot fill your pre-order, we will cancel it and notify you immediately. No compensation will be given for the inconvenience.
