Discounted & Free Shipping
CHRISTMAS SHIPPING 2021 UPDATE
NSW: We are located in Sydney and are finding our Sydney metro and NSW regional deliveries are being received within reasonable time frames so far this December.
However, in NSW placing orders after 10 Dec, we recommend opting for EXPRESS post especially if you are regional and want items for Xmas Day. We still cannot guarantee Aus post timings this year.
- The rest of Australia: Xmas Shipping is very slow this year, especially to regional VIC, SA, NT and WA.
- Please choose EXPRESS post for the best chance (no guarantee from us this time of year, I am sorry) to receive xmas presents before the 25th.
- I recommend ordering before the 6 December for any chance at all – even with Express Post. -We dispatch quickly – but Australia Post is very overwhelmed this year.
- CLICK AND COLLECT:. Available until- 22 Dec 2021, cost is $18 ( we pay lovely people to meet you – their time is not free, I am afraid!) so choose Click and collect at checkout and contact Susan to organise a time/day on 0416087394.
It is by a pre-arranged appointment near our storage unit in Rangers Rd Cremorne on Sydneys lower north shore. This can be organised for weekdays after 10am – please text/ call to organise when you would prefer to collect and this can be co-ordinated with one of our lovely ladies.
While we dispatch your order within 48 hours of receipt, we cannot guarantee delivery by Xmas this year due to the unpredictability of Auspost.
We offer FAST, efficient dispatch.
We pack and post within 2 business days of your order
If you really need your items super-fast – please choose EXPRESS post – we post quickly – but only Australia Post Express can reach destinations in the fastest possible timeframe.
NOTE: Any discounted/free shipping is offered to the -AFTER DISCOUNT TOTAL.
Occasionally your discount will drop your total below a discount / free shipping bracket – check if this has happened if you don’t see the shipping discount you expected.

A SPECIAL DATE coming up?
Text me (Susan) on 0416 087 394, if you want to ensure/check if your parcel will get to you or “them” in time for a particular occasion. I will only recommend Express post if I think necessary and you can then choose express at checkout. I find Australia Post incredibly reliable and fast and safe – (however, we can’t control delivery times once we have posted your item.)
Free and discounted Shipping is offered based on the cart total AFTER any discounts have been applied.
Such that, if you add a promo-code or discount coupon that deducts an amount that reduces your total below $300, free shipping will not be activated as an option.
eg. Lets say your cart total is $305.00 – but then you apply a discount coupon that deducts $10 – so you have saved $10 but it has reduced your cart total to $295 – this means that the “Over $300 Free Shipping” offer is no longer valid. For Free shipping in this case your cart needs to be over $300 – after all discounts applied.
- RECEIPTS & INVOICES
We don’t add documentation 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!)
Your order confirmation has our ABN on it and acts also as your Tax invoice for tax purposes.
- 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 can send you your tracking number if you cannot find it.
- Your order can include FREE Gift Wrap(ping) & Card/s valued over $10 (tick the box on product page to choose)
- We only use sustainably sourced, recycled, compostable or recyclable packaging, it may be a bit ugly at times – but its good for the planet
- GIFTS/HAMPERS for others:
If you have noted to us, that your item is to be a gift , or we see it is being sent to a different address to your billing address, or is obviously 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.
- No receipt or payment info comes with your parcel.
New Zealand – is a fixed rate of $29.99 for tracked and insured parcel – These are usually sent Express, depending on weight etc.

PLEASE ENQUIRE. (we are in Australia) if you would like more accurate quote for your items (e.g. perhaps your are purchasing something very small or lightweight).

1. 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 Halcyon Nights Baby wear, Bedhead Hats or Babiators due to the personal nature of clothes/hats.

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 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, but 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) 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 discuss with you the option of deducting this from the replacement item.
