We are open and shipping as normal.  Local delays may be incurred with delivery, due to social distancing within sorting offices and delivery routes.


We are shipping orders everyday for arrival prior to Halloween.  We advise choosing one of our Premium or Express options the later you leave it.  This service will text/email you your delivery information, giving you full peace of mind.  Delivery estimates may be extended during peak times over Halloween and Christmas but we will endeavour to get your order to you as fast as possible.  All delivery times are best estimates and not guaranteed.


During the run up to Christmas, various postal estimates are extended.  Where a 1st class service might normally take 1-2 days, this will more likely be 3-5 days at least.  Please visit the Royal Mail website for specific information regarding your area.  As we get closer to Christmas, these estimates will be extended even further.  Please keep this in mind when selecting your delivery option.

Here at Fun Ideas Ltd we have tried to provide you with as many options as possible with regards to how you can receive your delivery.  The above delivery options include an estimate of the delivery timescales.  These are not guaranteed.  If you need your order by or on a specific day, please call us on 01202-461049 and we will be happy to help.

If your chosen delivery option requires a signature and no one is available to sign, the delivery person should leave a “While you were out” card, telling you where you can collect your parcel.  There may also be instructions as to how you can arrange for redelivery.

Please keep in mind that we cannot be held liable for any delays due to no one being available to sign for your delivery.  All delivery times are estimates.  Parcels can take up to 15 days to be delivered before classed as being missing.  We are unable to refund postage costs due to delivery taking place outside of these estimates.

If your chosen delivery method has the option of nominating a “Safe place”, you will be able to tell us where you would like your parcel left if no one is available to take delivery.  For example “Please leave behind blue bin”.  Please only notify us of places that are safe as once a parcel has been left with your authorisation we may be unable to process any claims of lost parcels.

Where your delivery is attempted but no-one is available, the courier may attempt a re-delivery or they may leave you a card advising you where your parcel can be collected etc.  We advise you check with your local delivery office in person as delivery personnel do not always leave cards  If no attempt is made to collect the parcel or it is returned to us, through no fault of our own.  Any refund of your order will incur a £10 deduction in addition to any shipping costs also not being refunded. 

Please use the Royal Mail Post Code finder to make sure your post code is correct:

Any orders placed after 1pm may be processed the following day.  Any delivery estimates or guaranteed times do not include the day the order is placed.  Fun Ideas Limited will not be held liable for delay of deliveries under any circumstances, either by Royal Mail or any other courier or for any consequential loss as a result of such delays. No compensation will be offered (other than your statutory protection) for any reason or under any circumstances incurred through loss or delay of your order, either in part or in full. Your order is only classed as accepted once we have shipped your items. At no point up until shipment has your order been accepted. Where you have placed an order and either part or the whole of your order is not available, you will be notified via email. Your order will be cancelled and any money paid will be refunded in full for items not supplied. Where you have provided us with a telephone number, we may call you to offer alternative items. We use many different suppliers and as such we may substitute your ordered product for one of similar/better quality.  During busy peak seasonal times such as Halloween or Christmas, the above delivery times may be affected and any delivery guarantees may be suspended/extended.

If you have selected to have your order delivered to an address outside of the UK, you may have to pay import taxes/duties upon delivery of yoru order.  These extra charges do not come to us, they are imposed by your own government and tax authorities.  Where a delivery fails due to non payment of these duties and the parcel is return to us, we may deduct costs incured by us, such as original shipping fess for example.  Please consult your local tax authorities for more information on import duties when ordering from the UK.
