We don’t add documentation, receipts, tax invoices or price/payment info with your parcel. All invoices from us, and payment receipts from the payment mode you used (eg Paypal, Eway, Wizpay etc) are sent to the email address you provided with your order. This is ideal for sending gifts or keeping your spending habits on the “down low” (we get it!)
EMAILS FROM US:
Sometimes your work/home server or your email spam blocker {we don’t know why} will block our emails and emails from Auspost to you – such as the Order Confirmation and / or your Auspost tracking details etc – If so please get in contact – I will do an auto resend – if this is also blocked – I can try another way.
This happens about once a week – so I am very sorry if it happens to you – and very happy to text you tracking details, invoice etc – whatever did not get- through!!)

TAX INVOICE:

Your order confirmation that is EMAILED to you has our ABN on it and acts also as your Tax invoice for tax purposes. WE are happy to resend this as required

POSTAGE INSURANCE
Your parcels are always sent using tracking and with insurance. Australia Post will send you all your tracking details to your email address, once your postage is on its way. Check your spam folder if you don’t see it.
Or ask me – I will happily send you your tracking number if you cannot find it – and get to say Hi personally in the process. 🙂

Re-cycled bubblewrap, filling etc in your parcel

We only use sustainably sourced, recycled, compostable or recyclable packaging, it may be a bit ugly at times – but its good for the planet :).
Our packaging for-Hamper and Gift orders Is made as pretty as possible -while packaging is still eco-safe.
We use biodegradable sticky tape and FSC paper and cards – mostly made in Australia – although we also source some fabulous tissue paper sustainably made in Finland

GIFTS/HAMPERS for others:
If you have noted to us, that your item is to be a gift – we gift wrap, provide a card and “Shzoozsh up” the presentation so it arrives beautifully ready for your recipient to be absolutely delighted. Our packaging for non-hamper or gift orders Is recycled/eco-safe – but fittingly fabulous in presentation!

WHAT IF POSTAGE IS MORE THAN ANYONE CAN AFFORD?
Please note: We reserve the right to refund your order and/or ask if you are willing to contribute to postage, if sending your package will cost us more than the value of the order or for any other other reasonable situation, such as, we cannot organise an affordable way to send your order. We will know this within 24 hours – so you wont be left wondering. This has actually never happened -we usually just accept the cost -but we imagine it could one day – so we have this paragraph here just in case!

NICENESS, KINDNESS, SUPER APPRECIATED 
We are humans like you, we rarely have issues with our quality toys – but it can happen! but please be nice about this. I run a small family business (not a multi national conglomerate) yes I make mistakes – but it still costs us to replace etc – so courtesy and kindness is always appreciated. WE do our best to keep you happy, so bare with our humanity.
NATURE Is both PERFECT and IMPERFECT
Hand made items such as Grimm’s and Grapat wooden toys and Hand crocheted rugs from Pebble and other crochet or felted or fair-trade items etc are all one-off items and can feature differences of colour, patterns, wood grains, dark lines and other variations in colour on grain, these are natural differences due to the nature of wood, hand crafting etc. These are not faults and will not be replaced or refunded. Happy to see photos if you are concerned.  
…..“Grimm’s love wood because it is a natural material so it always has various markings that show up in our products, making each one unique. Grimm’s toys are always one of a kind, carrying unique marks made by nature. Wood grain has changing structures and colours which serve as proof of its natural origins. The unique variations are proof of quality, not defects”..

2. Also no refund/exchange on Baby wear, Bonnets or Babiators due to the personal nature of these.

 Stock availability

Stock or exchange preferences are subject to availability.

Loss and damage during delivery:

Our lovely fairy worker (I) at Bambino, check all toys and gifts to make sure they are in perfect condition and not faulty prior to packaging and every item is packaged with great care. We always post with tracking- so that your order can be tracked.
Australia Post is a reliable delivery service, however sometimes mishaps can occur.
We cannot take responsibility for issues that take place while package is in transit.
If a package is delayed, arrives damaged or not at all; please contact us immediately by email or phone and we will help direct you through the process of claiming through Australia Post.

DAMAGED (in the post) ITEM:

All the items we post out carry insurance up to the value of $100 – we usually increase the insurance, if the items are valued over $100.
If your item/s arrive damaged, let us know within 2 days, and then your next step will be to take it to the post office with your proof of purchase (print out a receipt so they know the value of the item – I can resend this if you cant find it) and the damaged item, the box/satchel/package it arrived in etc.
You can claim up to $100 back from the Post office. If we have made the error of not insuring the item over $100 and the item that is damaged is valued above this-we can work out the options with you.
