Can I pick up my order?

Are the toys in stock and how long does it normally take to get delivered?
Toys that you can "add to basket" are in stock. Toys that are noted as out of stock are expected to come back into stock within 4 weeks. Toys that you saw previously on the web site but can't see now are either never coming back into stock, or will return into stock between 3 and 6 months time. All items featured on our site are on our shelves for delivery to your home within 3 - 4 working days. Some items may leave our supplier's warehouse directly, in which case the lead time is 6/7 working days. Toys taking 6/7 working days are note specifically in the description of that toy.
What payment methods do Mimitoys accept?
We accept online payments for Visa, Mastercard, Amex and Irish debit cards ie Laser Cards and Visa Debit.
We can also accept cheques, bank drafts and postal orders. Please ring us on 046 955 8977 (INT +353 46 955 8977) if you want to pay using these non-card methods both to place order and arrange postage of cheque, bank draft or postal order.
When is my card transacted?
When you order with us by credit card, the account is not debited until we have dispatched the goods. When you order with us by cheque we dispatch your order when your cheque has cleared its value into the Mimitoys bank account. Cheques should be made payable to "Mimitoys".
How secure are the Card Details I enter to complete my order?
We use a subsidiary of AIB to transact your card payment. With this method we cannot hold details of your card - in fact we have no record of your card details whatsoever. Proof of such is customers who reorder with us must enter their card details again. This methodology of card transacting is a corner-stone of responsible e-commerce
What are your Returns Policies?
All our toys conform to the strict European safety standards and bear the CE mark. We are confident that customers will be happy with their purchases. However, if a customer should wish to return a toy, the toy has to be send back in its original packaging and in a resell-able condition within 30 days of reception of order. The delivery charge is at the customer's expense (except in the case of faulty products). Naturally in this case, we cannot be responsible for items lost or damaged in the post. We recommend that customers get a "proof of posting certificate" to guarantee the packages safe return to us. On reception of the toys/s, a refund will be organised.
What happens to my details on your site?
When ordering on our mimitoys.ie we ask customers to register their details with us. As part of that process we ask you if we want to "Sign-Up to our Newsletter" offering you the opportunity to decline our request.
We would like to use these details to inform you of Mimitoys.ie special offers. We have not, do not and will not share your information with any other outside organisation.

Call Mimi at 0469558977 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you need any information on your order.
Is assembly required?
"assembly required" will be clearly marked in the description of the sets, toys, etc, that need assembly.
The larger role play toys such as dolls houses, playsets, tables and chairs, swingsets, etc...will all need assembly.

The inspiration for our business came from the absence of readily available good quality wooden toys that were fun and educational for babies, toddlers and preschool children in Ireland.
Since then we have broadened our scope to provide many more creative and engaging online toys for a much wider age range and now also bring you stylish and practical furniture ranges for your childrens bedroom. All available to browse at your leisure online or in our catalogue and ready to be packed and delivered to your door.
