Product Information

Do you offer a guarantee on your products?

All our products are sold with a one year guarantee against faults as standard. For more information on what our guarantee covers, please refer to our Terms and Conditions page.

What is the difference between a guarantee and a warranty?

A guarantee is given from us as a company on the goods we sell to be fit for use. Our guarantee will cover any product for a one year period against any fault. If this occurs we will be happy to replace the product for you or offer a refund. A warranty is usually supplied by the manufacturer to cover any fault on your purchased product, and the cost of any repairs incurred for a reasonable length of time after point of purchase. Please refer to our Terms and Conditions page for more details.

Were you looking for us?
Because we’ve changed our name, our address and our look.

Times change, markets change, so we have, too.

That’s why, from now on, we’ll be under a new name at a new address (along with a bright new identity and a lovely new logo). But what hasn’t changed is the quality, range and value of our early years products and resources.

We think you’ll love what we’ve done with the new place.
