We love helping our customers so if you have any questions or need advice please email us.


Shipping – New Zealand

All our New Zealand orders cost a flat rate of $10 and are sent via Track & Trace courier. The shipping fee is added at checkout, is for any size box and includes Rural Delivery. Please note that we are unable to deliver to a PO Box.

Freight Free

We offer freight free on all orders over $150 within New Zealand.

Monkey Kids is a small, hard-working company and we endeavour to dispatch all orders within three business days.

  • Rural delivery please allow an additional 1-2 business days

Pick Up In-store

If you would like to collect your order from our store in Rotorua, please use the discount code pickmeup to cancel any freight charges.

We are now offering pick up from our sister store in Napier at dalton + dot located at 25 Dalton Street, Napier. Please note some items may not be available in Napier and these will be sent to Napier and we will phone you when your order is ready for collection.  It your order is required for a specific date please get in contact with us so that we can have your goods available.

Loss or Damage of Goods in Transit

If you do not receive an order, or it arrives damaged, please email us and we will raise a claim on your behalf with the relevant freight company. The freight company will then contact you for verification of the loss or damage. Please note that claims can take up to six weeks to process.


Shipping – International


We will reassess this in 2022.

We charge a base shipping fee of NZ$30 for all international orders. This is added at checkout and paid with your item via whichever payment option you choose.

Once we’ve received your order we will get a firm quote and advise you of any further freight charges. We will then send you a PayPal invoice for any extra shipping fees and when this is paid we will dispatch your order.

For your peace of mind we strongly recommend all overseas orders use Track & Trace.  


Returns & Exchanges  

Buyer’s remorse!  It can be hard to know what you’re getting when buying online so if you have any questions or need advice, please contact us before you make your purchase.

Change of Mind

If you change your mind once you’ve received your item, or it’s not quite what you were expecting, we are more than happy to offer you a store credit or an exchange for your purchase price minus any freight charges incurred – you just need to contact us within 14 days of receiving your delivery..

If you can’t return the item to our shop in person, you will need to organise and pay for any shipping back to us. Track & trace couriering for returns is strongly encouraged as the item is your responsibility until it is back in our store.

In order to exchange an item or receive store credit the following criteria apply:

  • The item needs to be returned to us unused, unopened and in the original packaging.

  • We cannot accept returns of dummies/pacifiers due to health reasons.

  • We cannot accept returns of items that were bought on sale or at a discounted price.

Please note that we may need to reject a return if it doesn’t meet any of the above criteria

Shipping on Change of Mind Exchanges

If you request an exchange shipping will be applied to the new item we send you.

For exchanges on larger items we will need to charge freight according to the product’s weight and size, not the $10 flat fee. We will notify you of this prior to accepting the return.

Faulty or Damaged

We carefully inspect and pack each item for delivery but if your purchase is damaged or faulty we are happy to offer a full refund. Please email us as soon as possible – within 14 days at the latest – including photos of the damage or fault.

Once you’ve received confirmation that we will accept the return you will need to deliver the item back to us. If you can’t return the item to our shop in person, please organise a Track & Trace courier and we will reimburse you for this shipping cost.

Please note that we may need to reject a return if the damage or fault is deemed to be the customer’s responsibility.

Out of Stock

If you have purchased an item that is out of stock we will email you as soon as we discover the discrepancy. We can suggest a replacement product or you can choose to receive a full refund.

Purchase Using Afterpay, Laybuy or PayPal

If your purchase was made using Afterpay, Laybuy or PayPal we can offer you either;

  1. A store credit for the full amount, or

  2. A refund less the 5% cancellation fee charged by Afterpay, Laybuy or PayPal.  


Pricing, Payment, Taxes and Duties

All our prices are in New Zealand Dollars (NZD) and are inclusive of GST. Sometimes we may need to change our prices due to market forces so please check the cost each time before you complete your purchase.

International Orders

If you are purchasing from outside New Zealand, your country may apply customs or import duties. Unfortunately, we have no power over this and any customs or duties costs will need to be paid by you.
