Christmas Deliveries

Leaving it a little late? Here's our guide to the last dates for Christmas deliveries.

Deliveries to the UK
You can order as late as 1pm on Friday the 21st December. It will be guaranteed to arrive by 1pm on Monday the 24th if you choose our "UK Courier" delivery service, which is Royal Mail Special Delivery, at the checkout stage. It might even get there on Saturday.

If you are using our standard shipping service, which is Royal Mail 1st class, we would recommend ordering by 1pm on Wednesday the 19th December.


Deliveries to Europe and the Rest of the World
Sorry - you're probably already too late! Deliveries normally take about 3 days to get to Western Europe, 5 to get to Eastern Europe and 7 to get to the rest of the world. However, due to the whold Christmas thing, things are likely to take a little longer. There's always next year.

New Years Eve orders
We'll be closed from Christmas Eve until the 28th December, when we'll be sending out all orders received overt Christmas. If you select the UK Courier delivery service it will be guaranteed to arrive by 1pm on the 31st December.

Good Deed Giraffe


This is the Good Deed Giraffe. He lives in Scotland, and likes to dress up as a giraffe twice a week and perform random good deeds for strangers.

He's been spotted handing out coffees to office workers, bananas and water to runners, and £10 vouchers to mums. He's also been seen cleaning up litter on a beach. The guy is unemployed and all of this is funded by his busking earnings.

We've been reading about him all week, and our favourite quote comes from the BBC News website: "He hitch-hikes to reach his destinations - but is only being able to be picked up by convertibles due to his long-necked suit." Class.

You are a true super-hero and we salute you, Good Deed Giraffe.

2 new cats

We've got not one but two new cat kigurumi onesies in stock this week. One is a tortoiseshell cat with  some warped up-all-night-on-catnip eyes; the other is a ginger Garfield-esque sleepy cat. Both have collars with bells on and both are made of a soft polyester fleece.

You can find them both, and all of our other cat related costumes and clothing, on Cat Costumes page.

Restock Dates

You guys have been snapping up our animal costumes quicker than we expected lately, and so you might have noticed that quite a few of our products are out of stock. We're having a bunch shipped in by plane to make up for it and we thought we should let you know when it is all expected.

Of course, you are quite welcome to give us a ring or send us an email with any specific questions you might have, but hopefully this note will help too.

Delivery due on 23rd October

In good time for Halloween orders, we'll have the Monster, Bear (that's the fleecier of our 2 bears), Hamster, Giraffe and Panda. You can also expect some great new products next week including 2 new cats, a reindeer, a new alien and 3 new hoodies. Don't know about you but we're really excited about the alien.

Delivery due on 25th October

Also next week and in time for Halloween, but most likely a couple of days later, we'll be replenishing the kigurumis shown in our lightweight animal suits category. These ones come in different sizes, so some of them are already in stock in some sizes but out of stock in others. We'll be replenishing all sizes for most of them, and the list includes the Turtle, Bear, Dinosaur, Bee, Eagle, Dragon, Mouse (both pink and blue), Lobster, Shark, Skunk and Cheetah. There will also be some exciting newbies on this shipment too: a polar bear, bluebird, wild boar, mole and donkey. All the new ones are amazing and we can't wait to show you.

Delivery due on 15th November

In mid-November we'll be getting a huge delivery of the kigurumis shown in our fleece animal suits category. This shipment will include the characters Tigger and Eeyore, and animals the Dinosaur, Panda, White Tiger, Tabby Cat, Black Cat, Monkey, Cow, Giraffe, Seal, Frog and Kangaroo (which is currently in stock but expected to sell out soon). We'll also be getting some brand new character kigurumis including Disney's Stitch and Cheer Bear (from the Care Bears).

Delivery due on 25th November

Lastly, towards the end of November we'll be replenishing the Pink Unicorn, Black Dragon, Parrot and Crocodile (which is currently in stock but expected to sell out soon). That'll be it until Christmas but we're really looking forward to 2013 already!

Lots of your photos

You've been sending us your animal costume photos for our competition. So many in fact that they've been coming in quicker than we can upload them to our blog. So here's a big glut of lots and lots of your photos.

Please keep sending them in! We've given away 2 prizes already - the fox and the dinosaur kigurumis - and we'll be giving away another at the end of October. Also it's fun.
1. All sorts of fancy dress hi-jinks on a car, which appears to be buckling, featuring our Zebra Kigurumi. Thanks to Alex for sending it in.

2. This is Eoin, rocking out in the Dinosaur Kigurumi, in some kind of farmyard car park. Thanks to Amie for sending it in.

3. A person in our Giraffe Kigurumi in a box, in a photograph, in your mind... or something. Thanks to Elinor for this one.

4. We've only gone and forgotten who sent us this one. But we like it and we're pretty sure it had something to do with football. So thanks, you.

5. This is a nice smiley huggy one which we like because it makes us feel nice when we look at it. Well done Kelly for being so nice, and thanks for sending it in.
