RETURNS & EXCHANGES
The Child Hood understands that purchasing an item of clothing over the Internet can sometimes be tricky, which is why we offer returns/exchanges on any items (except items which are marked as “Final Sale”). To be able to exchange or obtain a refund, the item must be in its original condition (i.e. unworn and unwashed) with the tags still on. You must contact The Child Hood within 7 days of receiving the item. Please follow the following steps with regards to returns or exchanges.
- Contact The Child Hood within 7 days of receipt of item on firstname.lastname@example.org informing us of the item to be returned/exchanged, including the item style number
- Send the item back to The Child Hood. We recommend that you return your item via registered post as The Child Hood does not take any responsibility for any lost or damaged items. If you are exchanging your item for another item, please inform The Child Hood prior to sending your item back so we can check the availability of your requested item.
- Once The Child Hood receives your item, we will either credit you for the total value (excluding shipping except for faulty items), send to you an item in exchange, or we will send through to you a credit note that can be redeemed for any other item in stock.
Note: The Child Hood reserves the right to refuse or reject returns or exchanges where the correct procedure as outlined above has not been followed.
The cost of return shipping is not covered by The Child Hood and remains the customer’s responsibility, unless the product is faulty or the return is due to an error by The Child Hood. For this reason, we do our best to ensure product descriptions are kept up-to-date and as accurate as possible, and our friendly customer service team is always happy to help with any questions prior to purchase.
Orders that fail to meet the minimum shipping spend after a change of mind return is granted will incur an $8.95 fee for Australian orders or $14.95 for international orders, for the cost of shipping and handling the original order. This will be deducted from your refund or store credit.
For exchanged items, the customer will need to provide a satchel in order for us to send out exchanges. We can provide a return satchel at your cost of $8.95.
