Rural delivery

We do not pass on the additional charge that we are charged for delivering to rural delivery addresses.

Please ensure that you do specify in your address if your address is rural delivery. If you don’t tell us you are rural delivery, we do not know to put the correct ticketing on your package and this can lead to a delay.  If you are rural, your parcel will not be delivered overnight sorry!. Please allow an additional 2-3 days for delivery.

If we do not use a rural delivery sticker on your package when it should be used, we are charged an additional $5 fee for under-ticketing!

Our preferred option is to replace the item for you. A refund will only be given if the product cannot be replaced. We can offer credits should you wish to purchase another item from our store.

We will happily meet our obligations under the Consumer Guarantees Act if our products have been wrongly described, develop a fault or are not fit for the purpose described.

Please contact us with details of the fault including a photo if possible. Often this means we can send out your replacement before you return the faulty item, which means the problem is solved faster.

Sleepytot NZ reserves the right to obtain a copy of the receipt for proof of purchase.

Reimbursement for shipping expenses will be up to the value of the original quoted shipping cost.

Electrical Items.

Change of mind electrical items can be returned for a STORE CREDIT ONLY and must be returned within 30 days.

Before returning a battery operated item which you consider faulty, we require that you have tested your item with a brand new set of high quality batteries, such as Every Ready GOLD, Energizer Plus or Duracell Plus. The majority of ‘faults’ are due to the use or poor quality batteries, such as using a mix of old and new batteries, using rechargeable batteries or cheap chain store or $2 shop batteries.

Please note LULLA doll will not work with generic batteries that are not of high quality. Likewise if the batteries have been sitting around for a while, this will effect the performance of Lulla.

Do not use Lithium batteries with any of our battery operated products including Lulla and the Baby Shusher. By doing so you will void your warranty. Use good quality rechargeable or alkaline batteries.
