Returns policy



If you are not completely happy with any items from your order you may return them to us within 21 days from delivery (subject to the conditions and exclusions below) for a refund or Store Credit (you can choose on your returns form). Please note your returns must be delivered to us within this time, returns received beyond these periods will not be accepted unless agreed otherwise (or in the case of faulty items - see below).


To avoid disappointment we advise that you place a new order for any items you wish to exchange for and request a refund for your return, as the items you want may sell out in the time it takes for us to receive your return. We are not able to hold items and cannot guarantee their availability prior to receiving your return.


Items must be in brand new condition and show no signs of wear with all original packaging, garment tags and labels still attached. Original shoe boxes and other containers that products are sold in are considered part of the product and must also be returned in undamaged and unused condition. Items returned without their branded packaging will not be accepted.

We do not accept items that have been damaged by wear and tear, altered or washed incorrectly (please check washing instructions on all garments before handling). When trying items on, please be sure they do not come in contact with perfumes, sprays, creams or other chemicals, and be sure to try shoes on a soft clean surface.


For purposes of hygiene we can not accept the following items:

  • Bottles and dummies
  • Underwear
  • Swimwear (boys swim shorts are returnable)
  • Earrings
  • Headbands and hairclips
  • Items that are supplied to order cannot be returned (e.g. Sarah Louise)


We take a great deal of care to quality-check all items thoroughly before they are dispatched, but please check your items carefully on delivery for any damage/faults and return them within the above returns periods for a refund, store credit or replacement.

All items returned as ‘faulty’ will be subject to a thorough investigation to confirm that the damage is due to a manufacturing fault and not normal wear-and-tear, which is not covered by our returns policy. The item may need to be shipped to the manufacturer for them to assess and decide this, which can take up to 28 days.

Faulty items returned beyond the regular returns period above will be professionally repaired and returned to you at no cost. If the item is unrepairable we will offer you a full or partial Store Credit or replacement (at our discretion) depending on the extent of the damage.



Items purchased under the OUTLET section can only be returned for Store Credit or exchange within 21 days of delivery.

UK ONLY: This does not affect your statutory rights - so you may still return promotional items for a refund under the Distance Selling Regulation, which requires that you provide us written notification of cancellation within 14 days of delivery.



On delivery your parcel will include a returns form with instructions, simply fill in the form and pack it along with your items into our re-sealable bag. If your packaged arrived in a Childsplay Clothing gift box you do not need to return it. This is our gift to you.


We include a free postage-paid returns label in every parcel, please stick this onto your parcel and drop it to your local post office. You will not be charged for your return and it will take 1-2 days to be returned to us. Please keep hold of your proof of postage.


Please note we do not take responsibility for any loss or delay caused when using our free returns service. For added guarantee, especially for a highly valuable return, we advise that you use your own guaranteed postal method and purchase insurance.


For your convenience we have included a sticky address label for your parcel. Please note this is not a postage-paid label so you must add stamps or pay postage when sending.


Send your returns back to us using the included address label or your own method to the following address:

Childsplay Clothing
Returns Department
Unit 5
Orion Park
Messina Way
United Kingdom

Please use a recorded/tracked and/or signed service as you are responsible for the safe and timely return of your items to us, including any postage costs, insurance, Customs & Duty charges for international returns, etc. We do not take responsibility for any additional charges, loss or delays in this process unless we have arranged to have your return collected using our own couriers.



To avoid incorrect Customs & Duty charges when your return arrives in the UK, you must mark your parcel as:


Fedex automatically charge customs and duty on every parcel returned to us.
This charge will automatically be deducted from your refund.


Please track your return and confirm it has been delivered to us safely. Once received, your return will be processed and you will receive an email confirmation with the details. We aim to process all returns within 5 working days of delivery, however during busy periods such as sales it could take up to 10 working days. We would appreciate your patience and understanding should this be the case. Please note that once we process your refund, the funds may still take up to 5-8 working days to show in your bank account.
