The terms on this webpage set out the legal contract that applies when you, as a private individual, purchase Products from www.yotoplay.com (the Website).
We’ve worked hard to make these terms easy to understand and avoid legal jargon. Please read them carefully because they are legally binding.
Who are Yoto?
Yoto Limited is a company incorporated and registered in England and Wales with company number 09542062 whose registered office is at 124 City Road, London, England, EC1V 2NX.

You can find out more information about how to contact us by clicking here.
When I buy from the Yoto website, who is my contract with?
On our website, you can buy items such as the Yoto Player, Yoto Cards, accessories, Gift Cards and Make Your Own Cards (Products).
When you purchase from Yoto Limited, the legal contract is between you and us.
Sometimes we offer discount codes for use to make purchases on our website; we reserve the right to disable these codes at any time without notice.
When is my contract formed?
Your contract with us is formed when payment is taken from your account by us, and not at the time you place your order. We’ve explained in the next few sections the process that takes place when assessing your order, and before the contract is formed between you and us. We really do try to make sure all images and details of the items appearing on the Website are accurate at the time you place your order. We don’t always get it right though, and this sometimes means your order cannot be accepted. If your order cannot be accepted for any reason, we will let you know why by email as soon as reasonably practicable, and you will be refunded.
When will my chosen payment method get charged?
When your order is accepted by us, your chosen payment method will be charged. If you order Products from Yoto for delivery to other countries, your order may be subject to import duties and taxes. Neither we nor the seller has any control over these charges, and the delivery company will usually leave you instructions on how to pay these charges.
I’ve changed my mind. When and how can I cancel my order/return my order?**
If you’ve changed your mind you can cancel and (where appropriate) return your order:
- at any time before we take payment from your account for the goods; or
- at any time during the 60 days from the day after the date the Products were delivered. If your order was delivered in multiple batches, then this timeframe starts on the day after the last item in your order was delivered to you.
You will not be able to cancel your order if your item is bespoke or has been altered by you in any way.
If you cancel because you’ve changed your mind, you will receive a refund of the price paid for the Products plus any applicable standard delivery charges (but not any enhanced or premium delivery charges). Please make sure you return the Product unused, in the same condition you received it, as well as all the packaging and included accessories, but nothing else!
Your refund can be reduced if you’ve changed your mind and can’t manage to meet the return requirements above, or if you have used the item more than you would be able to in a shop when deciding whether to buy it and it is no longer in a resaleable condition.
Please see our Contact Us page for our contact details to cancel your order. We will also, if applicable, then provide you with instructions on how to return the Product. Your order will be cancelled at the time your cancellation request is received.
You’ll usually receive your refund within 14 days of the returned Product being received back from you, or within 14 days of your cancellation notice if the Products haven’t been dispatched yet.
I’ve bought a Yoto Gift Voucher, what are my rights?
The value of your Gift Voucher can be redeemed for purchases online at www.uk.yotoplay.com using the digital pin code provided to the email address with which you purchased the Voucher.
The Gift Voucher balance cannot be exchanged for cash or redeemed against the purchase of another card.
The maximum amount that an individual Gift Voucher can hold is £100. You can check the balance of your Gift Voucher via the link included in your purchase email.
Gift Vouchers can be used during promotional periods and with Yoto Tokens or Yoto Club discount.
Your Gift Voucher is valid for a period of 12 months from the date of Gift Voucher purchase, following which the card balance will expire automatically. A Gift Voucher cannot be used after the expiry date and any remaining balance will be removed. The Gift Voucher will become invalid and no longer available for use. We have no obligation to remind or inform you of a Gift Voucher’s expiry and it is your sole responsibility to ensure that any balance is used in full prior to expiry.
A Gift Voucher expires automatically once its balance is zero.
Gift Vouchers may be used to pay for the whole or any part of an online order, including postage.
Any goods paid for using a Gift Voucher that are subsequently returned for a refund will be credited to the original Gift Voucher. For returns where part payment was taken from a Gift Voucher, the refund will be credited to your Gift Voucher in the first instance.
If a partial refund is made for any purchase using a Gift Voucher and another method of payment, then any refund amount owing will be credited to the Gift Voucher in the first instance.
If the total to be refunded is more than originally paid by Gift Voucher, then any remaining refund balance will be refunded to the other method of payment used by you (i.e. debit/credit card or cash).
