Description of products and availability.
The advertising of Orchard Toys branded products ("product", "products" or "goods") on this website is an "invitation to treat" and a contract between us and you will only be created in accordance with the terms as described in Placing an Order and Acceptance of your Order ("contract").
Orchard Toys has taken every care in the preparation of the content of this website, in particular, to ensure that as far as reasonably possible, prices quoted are correct at the time of publishing and that all products have been fairly described.
Packaging styles and/or colours may vary.
Placing an Order
When placing an order you are requested to read and agree to these terms and conditions. Any orders placed by you are subject to these terms and conditions. If you are unsure about any of the content of our terms and conditions please contact our Mail Order sales team on +44 (0) 1953 859520 before you place an order.
Acceptance of your Order
After placing your order an order acknowledgement will be sent to the email address you have provided, detailing the product(s) you have ordered and confirming prices.
The order acknowledgement is not an acceptance of your order. Acceptance of your order and formation of the contract will only take place once we have confirmed your credit or debit card authorisation for your order, and the products you have ordered have been despatched (unless we have notified you that we do not accept your order or you have cancelled it in accordance with the terms as described in Cancellations). We will send you a despatch confirmation email when the product you have ordered is despatched from our warehouse.
We reserve the right to decline any order you place and/or to supply any product ordered as a result of the product you ordered being unavailable from stock, our inability to obtain authorisation for your payment, or if you do not meet our eligibility criteria. The contract between you and us will be concluded in English. The details of your specific contract will not be filed by us.
The products ordered by you will be at your risk from the time of delivery, and ownership of them will only pass to you when we receive full payment of all sums due in respect of them, including delivery charges if applicable.
Under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 (the “Regulations”), if you are contracting with us as a consumer online or by phone, you have the right to cancel your contract at any time up to 14 calendar days after the day on which you receive the goods or services you ordered. For example, if you receive the goods on a Thursday, you have 14 days from Friday to return your order to us.
If you have made a purchase through our website or over the telephone and have paid for delivery but wish to cancel your order you are entitled to a refund on the outbound delivery charge originally paid. Please note that the delivery charge refund will be the equivalent value of standard delivery.
If the goods have been delivered the cost of returning them to us is your responsibility unless the product is damaged, faulty, or does not match the order.
You have a legal obligation to take reasonable care of the goods whilst in your possession. Handling should not be beyond what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods and should not go beyond the sort of handling that might reasonably be allowed in a shop.
To cancel a contract in accordance with your legal right to do so, you just need to let us know that you have decided to cancel. The easiest way to do this is to complete the order cancellation form on our website. We will e-mail you to confirm we have received your cancellation.
Alternatively, you can contact our Customer Services team on 01953 859520 or e-mail us at email@example.com with your full name, order number, address and the date on which the order was placed/received.
Once you have informed us that you wish to cancel your order, if your goods have been delivered, please follow the returns procedure for cancelled goods.
This returns policy is specific to online and telephone purchases only.
We will only refund the outbound delivery charge for sending the product to you if:
• The product is damaged, faulty, or does not match your order
• You exercise your right to cancel your order within 14 calendar days after the day on which you received the goods
We will only refund the basic delivery cost, so if you opted for enhanced service e.g. next day delivery, we will only refund the basic delivery cost unless the product is damaged, faulty, or does not match your order.
Please note this only applies to the cancellation of the complete order; a return of part of your order will not result in the delivery charge being refunded.
The direct cost of returning the goods sits with you unless the product is damaged, faulty, or does not match the order.
Returns Procedure for Cancelled Goods
Please return the goods, in accordance with our Returns Policy, without undue delay and in any event no later than 14 days after the day on which you confirmed your wish to cancel to Orchard Toys, Chestnut Drive, Wymondham Business Park, Wymondham, Norfolk NR18 9SB to receive a full refund.
Please ensure that you enclose a note stating your order number, full name, address and telephone number. Your order number can be found on your despatch note or in your email order confirmation.
When processing a refund for cancelled goods, we will refund the original method of payment and you will receive an email confirming the refund amount. Your refund will be processed within 14 days after the day on which we receive the goods or, if earlier, the day on which we receive evidence that the goods have been returned.
Please ensure that any items to be sent back are returned securely. Orchard Toys Ltd. cannot be held liable for returned items which do not reach us.

If we fail, at any time during the term of any contract between us, to insist upon strict performance of any of your obligations under the contract or any of these terms and conditions, or if we fail to exercise any of the rights or remedies to which we are entitled under the contract, this shall not constitute a waiver of such rights or remedies and shall not relieve you from compliance with such obligations.

No waiver by us of any of these terms and conditions shall be effective unless it is expressly stated to be a waiver and is communicated to you in writing in accordance with Notices above.
If any of these terms and conditions or any provisions of a contract are determined by any competent authority to be invalid, unlawful or unenforceable to any extent, such term, condition or provision will to that extent be severed from the remaining terms, conditions and provisions which will continue to be valid to the fullest extent permitted by law.
These terms and conditions and any document expressly referred to in them constitute the whole agreement between us and supersede any previous arrangement, understanding or agreement between us, relating to the subject matter of any contract between us.
We each acknowledge that, in entering into a contract, (and the documents referred to in it), neither of us relies on any statement, representation, assurance or warranty (Representation) of any person (whether a party to that contract or not) other than as expressly set out in these terms and conditions.
Each of us agrees that the only rights and remedies available to us arising out of or in connection with a Representation shall be for breach of contract as provided in these terms and conditions.
Nothing in this clause shall limit or exclude any liability for fraud.
Our right to vary these terms and conditions
