The Snail and the Whale

The Snail and the Whale tells the story of a tiny snail who longs to see the world and hitches a ride on the back of a gigantic whale. Together the pair sets sail on an amazing journey and visit icebergs, volcanoes, sharks and penguins. As they cruise through the sea the snail starts to feel so small in the vastness of the ocean, but when the whale is suddenly beached in a bay it’s up to the tiny snail to save the day!

Computer Hardware and Peripherals

All Multimedia computers are covered by a 12 month hardware warranty which covers all parts and labour for hardware faults.

Faults within 28 days

An exchange or refund will be issued providing the item is returned within 28 days from the original date of purchase.

Faults after 28 days but within 12 months

Desktop computers

An engineer will visit you at home to repair the fault. If the fault requires a replacement unit, the manufacturer will either swap out the hardware at home or issue an authorisation code for the product to be returned to a Toys "R" Us store.

Tablets/Laptop computers

The help line will diagnose the fault and arrange, with your assistance, for the laptop to be couriered (at their expense) to their workshop where it will be repaired and sent back to you. It will be returned, or if the fault requires it replaced within 28 working days.

Peripherals

All of our peripherals are covered by a return to manufacturer warranty. In the event of a fault our special technical help lines will assess the fault and will arrange for free repair or replacement.

Consumer Electronics (e.g. TV, Video, DVD, Karaoke & Videogame Hardware)

In the event of a fault you should contact the relevant manufacturer’s help line, contained in the product’s warranty details, for the fault to be diagnosed. You will then be directed to an authorised service centre or to your local Toys "R" Us store for a replacement. In some cases it may be necessary for you to return the item to the manufacturer for repair (at no cost to you).
