Our services during Covid-19 & Christmas Posting Deadline
Hello, hope you are keeping safe and well.
As an online business we have been able to continue trading as usual. Please bear in mind though that there could be slight delays in your orders reaching you as Royal Mail are working hard within the lockdown conditions to deliver and staffing for them is restricted.
This years Christmas guaranteed delivery deadline will be a bit earlier this year because of this so Standard delivery deadline will be Friday 11th December and 1st Class delivery will be Monday 14th December. I will still be taking orders after these dates but I cannot guarantee delivery before Christmas.
You can arrange for postage direct to the recipient and we do offer Gift wrap service which includes a Christmas gift wrap option.
Thank you to everyone for your continued support. This is a very troubling time for small independent businesses and knowing that we have your support means that we can still do our happy dance when we receive your orders and make our way through this strange year we have all had.
Much love and best wishes to you all,

Who are The Forgotten Toy Shop...
The Forgotten Toy Shop is the brainchild of Karen Dorn.
After several years of running the business alongside a full time job, Karen decided to take the plunge and run The Forgotten Toy Shop full time from 2015.
Running the business on her own, from carefully selecting the stock for the store, to processing and packing every single order. Karen is very passionate about reigniting the magical joy of childhood play, and providing the highest quality of customer service.
In 2016 Karen was joined with chief toy tester, Zachary, who quite often likes to help with the unpacking of new stock, but sometimes becomes a challenge when he wants everything for himself to play with!!
