Terms & Conditions

Grasshopper Toys Ltd dispatch orders daily between Monday and Friday. Whilst we do our utmost to complete a same-day dispatch for orders received by 3pm, we cannot guarantee to send items out within 48 hours.
Grasshopper Toys Ltd use Royal Mail or national couriers where appropriate to ship goods. Most parcels will be sent via First Class Mail within 24 hours of ordering.

UK postage contributions are charged as follows:-
All orders are charged at £3.95 for shipping. This will entitle you to First Class Royal Mail postage, normally boxed and posted out on a daily basis.

Please note; The £3.95 is a contribution only and serves to keep the prices on the site low. We try very hard to keep the costs of our shipping low but the external courier and Royal Mail set postage costs.

We realise postage costs can be really irritating, but the P&P cost covers the cardboard box, void filler labelling, invoices and staff costs for processing your order, not just the postage iteself.

If you require a package urgently, you can request 24 hour or 48 hours courier service for an additional agreed charge, subject to the item being immediately available for despatch.

Please note: The above postal rates are only applicable to UK.

Shipping Outside the UK.
Rest of World (excepting USA and Canada) shipping is charged depending upon the weight of your order and the destination. For further guidance please see our Shipping page. Parcels will be sent by airmail, surface mail or courier, depending on weight, size and value.


If you are outside the European Union, you may be subject to import duties and taxes which are levied once the package reaches your country. Additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by you; we have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country; you should contact your local customs office for further information. Additionally, when ordering from Grasshopper Toys Ltd, you are considered the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the country in which you are receiving the goods.

Environmental Policy
Grasshopper Toys is very conscious of environmental issues concerning postage and packaging. We use cardboard boxes and try hard to use biodegradable packaging; sometimes we are unable to avoid plastic pillow packaging.  If your parcel does contain this type of packaging, please don’t throw it out, store it and re-use it on another occasion.  Occasionally we will recycle and reuse good quality packaging, we hope you don't mind.

Items must be paid for at the time of purchase, goods will not be dispatched until payment has been received. If instant payment by credit/debit card or Paypal is not made, we cannot guarantee that items will still be in stock when payment is received.
Where an organisation pays by Purchase Order, payment must be received within 7 days unless other terms are agreed.
