If you submit an order in error you will have the opportunity to cancel this as detailed in paragraph 10 below.

If you place your order on a Saturday, Sunday or bank holiday, the order will be processed and confirmed usually on the following business day in the UK.

Once you have placed an order, you will receive an order confirmation email (Confirmation of your order at Littlemagictrain) from us acknowledging receipt of your order and containing details of your order, which we would recommend that you print out and keep for your own records. Our order confirmation e-mail is acknowledgement that we have received your order,and does not confirm acceptance of your offer to buy the goods ordered. We only accept your offer, and conclude the contract of sale for the goods ordered by you, when we dispatch the goods to you or (where you have ordered digital content) we make this available for you to download. The contract that is formed shall be in English and will include these terms and conditions.

Please note that our Printed products are subject to availability. Whilst we will try our best to ensure the website only displays goods which are in stock, this can change quickly and so there may be circumstances where a Printed product you have ordered is unavailable and needs to be printed for you. If we have already accepted your order, we will notify you how long this will take.  You will have the opportunity to cancel your order and we will terminate the contract between us.

We may also be unable to accept or fulfil your order where:

we have identified an error in the price or description of the goods;

we are unable to obtain authorisation for your payment;

you do not meet the eligibility to order criteria as set out in these terms and conditions;

we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified.

We will let you know if this is the case and will not charge you for the goods you have attempted to order in these circumstances.

Goods must be returned unused, undamaged in their original, undamaged, packaging.

we may reduce your refund of the price (excluding delivery costs) to reflect any reduction in the value of the goods if this has been caused by your handling of the goods which would not be permitted in a shop. You have a legal obligation to take reasonable care of the goods while they are in your possession and are responsible for the risk of damage during transport. If we refund you the price paid before we are able to inspect the goods and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, you must pay us an appropriate amount.

We will process any refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, no later than:

  • In the case of physical goods – 14 days after the day we receive the returned goods from you; or (if earlier) the day you provide us with evidence that you have returned the goods; and
