Products and Ordering

1) Are your products authentic?

We are the authorised distributor for Mother Garden products in Singapore. All our products come with a hologram sticker and a unique serial number as proof of authenticity. Beware of imitation goods sold on popular shopping sites. If it seems too good to be true, it usually is.

2) Why is the painting/texture of my wooden toy uneven?

All Mother Garden wooden toy products are painstakingly hand-crafted, assembled, and painted with child-friendly non-toxic paints. Naturally, some slight unevenness and roughness can be expected. It is what makes each wooden toy piece unique.

3) Can I pre-order items if they are out of stock?

Yes you can. When items go out of stock, we will make it easier for you to pre-order items by creating new products that are labelled “(insert out of stock product name) – Preorder”. These products can be purchased on a preorder basis and you may take advantage of any existing limited time discounts to purchase those products.

Do note that shipping may take up to 2 months from the time of your order.

Payment

4) What are the payment options available?
