Q. I made an order last night / today and I'd like to add something to it? Do I need to pay for shipping again?

A. Due to the large number of orders we process every day, it's not always possible to accommodate requests for changes or additions to an order.

If your order has already moved through to our packing room, it may be too late.

However, if your order hasn't been packed yet (ie. status is "Awaiting fulfillment") then please reach out ASAP via chat (help desk) or email us

We'll respond during usual business hours.

Q. Can I visit your shop?

A. No. Our shop is not open to the public. We are an online retailer. Our warehouse is optimised for picking and packing and not for casual browsing. We don't have facilities for parking or taking payments on site.

If you haven't found the answer to your question and you would like a phone consultation - please reach out via the help desk and request a time for a 15 minute consultation.

Q. Do You Accept Creative Kids Vouchers

A. No. We withdrew from the Service NSW Creative Kids program in March 2022 and we don't accept or redeem vouchers anymore.

While we truly loved being a Creative Kids provider - and received lots of wonderful feedback from families about our kits and lessons - when the program was updated overnight by Service NSW, it excluded providers from supplying materials in exchange for the vouchers.

Yes, we know other providers are bending the rules and offering materials for a small extra fee, but we are not one of them. Our premium quality kits were never marked up to take advantage of the vouchers, and they remain the same great value they always were.

From 1/3/2022 onwards, providers are only able to offer live lessons in exchange for the vouchers. While we trialled live online lessons for several weeks, we found our customers were really only interested in the pre-recorded lessons.

In any case - we now offer a full beginners course, with more than 25 lessons. And we still have the same great kits 🥰

When you buy one of our amazing face paint kits, we'll include the course as free bonus. Find out more here
