We get a lot of really interesting questions, and we love chatting to you, but to save you time we have put together a list of our most frequently asked questions. Please contact us if you have anything to ask!
APRIL-JUNE 2020 Dispatch Update:
The current dispatch time is approximately 20 working days, please note this excludes public holidays (national & NSW) and weekends.
We appreciate your patience if your order is delayed beyond 20 working days. Some orders will be delayed up to 7 working days currently (up to 27 working days until dispatch). We are dealing with unforeseen delays in material delivery to our facility over which we have no control.
Your order may be sent in parts if a particular item is not available within a reasonable timeframe for dispatch.
We cannot provide ETAs or estimated shipping dates outside of the 20 working day estimate or accommodate any rush orders.
Please also there may be delays to shipping times due to couriers being inundated at the moment and delays in communication (i.e. no tracking updates). These delays are out of our control.
Due to social distancing no signatures are being recorded. Authority to Leave is automatic in these circumstances.
We appreciate your patience and support for Australian manufacturing. Please rest assured we are working as hard and as fast as we can, but in order to maintain quality and be mindful of the wellbeing of our staff these delays are unavoidable.
Our thoughts are with you all during this crazy and unpredictable time, and we hope to have your products with you ASAP.
What ages are they suitable for?
- Climbing Triangle and Ramps: 6 months - 5 years+
- Stairs / Boat : 6 months - 5 years+
- Tot Bots: 6 months - 65 years (seriously!)
- Cube Chair: 6 months - 5 years+
From the age your little ones can sit up (6 months and above) there are opportunities for them to enjoy the toys. Babies can climb before they can walk. We advise you use your discretion and knowledge of your children's abilities to provide them space and opportunity to explore safely under supervision.
We are yet to meet a kid under the age of 12 who doesn't want to climb but we recommend up to the age of 5 years to make sure they can get maximum fun. Measurements for the products are provided under each description.
The best thing about it is that they challenge themselves more as they get older. There is always a new way to use them. Which means you get years of value!
How hard is it to put together? What tools do I need?
The only tool required is an allen key (along with a little bit of time and muscle), which we provide along with instructions. A drill is useful for tightening but not necessary at all. The current record for putting a large triangle together is 8 minutes.
- The instructions for the Climbing Triangle are here (coming soon)
- The instructions for the Rocking Boat / Steps are here (coming soon)
Does the timber need to be treated?
The timber doesn't need treating. It should be kept dry and protected from the elements, but can be used inside and outside.
Speak to your local hardware store if you would like to treat the wood about what is available to suit your needs.
How much is shipping?
Shipping is additional, but we limit it to flat rate shipping in Mainland Australia (excludes remote areas and offshore islands), and have worked hard to get good New Zealand rates and cover the difference (because we are nice like that).
- Small item (up to 5kgs) i.e. Tot Bot: $15 AUD
- Large item (up to 15kgs) i.e. Large Triangle: $25 AUD
- Multiple Items (up to 1000kgs) i.e. Multiple items: $40 AUD
- Small item (up to 8kgs) i.e. Mini Pikler Triangle : $40 AUD
- Medium item (9-10kgs) i.e. Learning Tower $50 AUD
- Large item (10.5 to 15kgs) i.e. Large Triangle: $70 AUD
- Extra Large items (16-30kgs) $99 AUD
- Multiple Items (30.5 - 50kgs) i.e. Triangle & Slide: $150 AUD
Please note any taxes or duties incurred for deliveries to NZ are the responsibility of the customer.

Due to the size and weight of the equipment it costs a bit more than your average t-shirt to send! But we can guarantee this will last A LOT longer!
How long does it take to receive the order?
Do you have sales or discounts?
No, and yes. We don't do sales or discount codes. It's for a pretty good reason though. We keep our margins low. We started this business to make beautiful, quality equipment available as affordably as possible, because as a mum that's what I was looking for. We use premium materials and invest time and love to bring them to you. This way all of our customers get a great deal and it is fair to everyone. The yes part? Our collections are ALWAYS on sale and if you are ordering over $1500 worth of items we will throw in free shipping just send us a message.
What happens if I need to return the good or exchange it?
Our products are made to last and we take pride in our workmanship. If you are in any way unhappy with what you have received please notify us within three days of receiving the product. We will do everything we can to rectify the situation.
Please check your goods within three days of receiving them and contact us immediately if you require any assistance.
