Items for delivery outside the European Union may be subject to import duties, taxes and fees. These are levied once the items reach the specified destination. You, the customer, are responsible for import duties, taxes and fees incurred on your purchases. However, for orders placed on our website, you will be charged the delivered price. Customs authorities may request personal information such as Social Security number when inspecting your parcel; failure to provide this information to Customs will result in the parcel being returned, we therefore recommend that the recipient’s telephone details be included with the order. In this instance we are unable to refund the cost of postage and packaging. Please note that for items you order, you are considered the importer and must comply with all laws and regulations of the country in which the items are to be delivered. Please note that cross-border deliveries are subject to opening and inspection by customs authorities. Yotoplay.com cannot guarantee that your goods will arrive in the same condition that they were dispatched should they be subject to inspection.
When purchased from yotoplay.com, you can return Yoto Players, Yoto Minis, Yoto Cards, Yoto Card Packs or Yoto supplied accessories within 60 days of purchase, for any reason.
The product must be undamaged, with its original packaging, and with all the original contents. Return arrangements may vary by region (details below).
Please note that we do not accept returns on any cards received as part of Yoto Club, unless they are found to be faulty and a replacement is needed.
Update October 2022 - Christmas Return Policy: we realise that you may want to buy some or all of these for your friends or family for Christmas and it seems to come earlier every year, so, for purchases from the 1st October 2022 to the end of the year we will accept returns requests either to the end of January 2023, or 60 days from the date of your purchase, whichever is the later.
- Contact us using the form on our support website.
- We will make the best arrangements depending on your return type, location and general situation.
- If you are returning from an address in the UK, then Yoto will pay for the return shipping and will confirm arrangements during this process.
- If you are returning from outside the UK, then you will need to arrange and pay for the shipping. It is your responsibility to also arrange any insurance and packaging you deem appropriate, and you accept the responsibility of risk for any loss or damage during shipping.
- If Yoto is arranging your return, please note that you may need a printer to print the return label that we will email to you.
- Make sure you will include your order number with your returned parcel.
- Send the parcel, packaged to avoid any damage, from your local Post Office or drop-off point.
- Once we have received the product, and if the item is in satisfactory condition, we will refund your original payment within 5 working days.
- If the product is returned damaged, incomplete (card packs need to be returned complete and as sold) or not in the original packaging, this may result either in a reduction to your refund to compensate for the loss in value, or your return being made available for your collection without refund.
If you wish to request a refund rather than have a repair or replacement, and you purchased your Yoto product from Amazon or any other retailer, whether online or at a retail outlet, you must return them to your point of purchase. Different retailers will have different rules, so please be sure to check in advance of doing so.
All Policies and Processes remain subject to change at any time. Current versions will always be available to view at the Yotoplay website.
Once your return is received and inspected, we will notify you of the approval or rejection of your refund.
If you are approved, then your refund will be processed, and a credit will automatically be applied to your credit card or original method of payment within 7 working days.
Late or missing refunds
If you haven’t received a refund yet, please follow these steps:
- First, check your bank account again
- Then, contact your credit card company. It may take some time before your refund is officially posted
- Next, contact your bank. There is often some processing time before a refund is posted
If you’ve done all of this and you still have not received your refund yet, please contact us.
Sale items will be refunded up to the value they were sold at
We only replace items if they are defective or damaged. If you need to exchange it for the same item, please contact us for further details.
Refunds will only be made to the original purchaser of the goods. If the refund is in the form of a discount voucher then that voucher is transferable.
