Shipping & Returns

Thank you for shopping with Playdreamers.

We endeavour to ship all orders within 2 business days, with most orders being dispatched within 24 hours. 


AusPost are no longer offering pickups in our area. I will strive to run parcels to the post office daily, however please remember Playdreamers is a one woman team, and I'm a mother to three so occasionally days may be missed.
Aramex are currently picking up 4-6 days per week.


All orders are shipped from our warehouse and store in Forster, New South Wales. Delivery times will vary depending on your location.  
  • $9.95 flat rate shipping*.
  • *BULKY ITEMS MAY INCLUDE ADDITIONAL SHIPPING FEE. Please see shipping options at the checkout. Please note bulky items will mention Bulky Shipping Fees in their description. If "Free Shipping" is selected instead you will be invoiced for the $18 bulky shipping fee which will need payment prior to your order dispatching.
  • Bulky and Large Orders must have residential or business address - No PO Box or Parcel Lockers accepted due to extreme Australia Post rates being unattainable for small business. These orders will ship via Aramex. If you wish to have a large order shipped via Australia Post please get in touch and we will organise a custom shipping quote for you.
  • We do not currently offer Express Shipping but if you do need your parcel by a specific date please don't hesitate to contact us at or via our Instagram.
  • Local Pickup is available to customers in the Forster Tuncurry area. Please select "Local Pickup" as your shipping preference. We will email you when your order is ready and collection will be from our store in Forster during open hours.
  • Local Delivery may be organised by contacting Hannah at after ordering. Please select Local Pickup at checkout when purchasing.

Once your parcel is dispatched, delivery times are unfortunately out of our control. Delivery times vary depending on your location.

If any delays are anticipated with your order, we will contact you immediately.

Our Earth is important to us. Please reuse and recycle packaging used in your order. We pack your items for safe arrival, which means using additional packaging materials. Keep an eye out on our blog for recycled play ideas. 


If your order is intended as a gift, please write "GIFT" in the order comments. We will ship to the provided shipping address without an invoice, and send your invoice electronically to your order email address. If your shipping address is different to your billing address we will also send your invoice electronically, and no invoice will be delivered with your order. This way your purchase amount remains your private information. 



We do not currently offer shipping outside Australia. If you wish for advice on stockists of similar products in your country please get in touch and we will help however we can.
