    NavyBaby Base Set Details

    Please do take the time to read the NavyBaby Caution Disclaimer. We advise supervised play at all times. Note: Items listed are relevant to when purchase is made. As we continue to source affordable, quality and safe items there is the rare occasion some items may be out of stock and will replaced with another of equal or greater value. 

    Are the items safe?
    Heuristic, loose part play items are real world objects and therefore we advise all play to be supervised by an adult at all times.
    Additional to the safety testing requirements (above), our items have been checked for quality assurance when packed. Please ensure all objects are checked again prior to use (in the chance of shipping damage) and are continually monitored for general wear and tear reasons. If you feel any items are currently not suitable for your child/ren then please remove them and reintroduce at a time more appropriate. For a closer look into our items click here.

    What age is best for heuristic play?
    NavyBaby Heuristic Sets and Loose Parts are suitable for infants who are grasping, right up to 36 months of age and beyond. Many customers purchase products before 4 months as the items can be used as visual play when baby is having floor time (after all looking is learning). Be sure to check out the descriptions on each product for a sure direction.

    Safety information for your peace of mind:

    • Items of concern are tested at an accredited Toy Testing Laboratory.
    • All items meet standard AS/NZS 8124.1:2023 part 1. This is a baseline requirement for selling any toy to young children.
    • Items have been tested with a certified choking cylinder and internal checks regularly upheld.
    • Items bypass 3 differing quality control checks as they arrive on and depart our premises.
    • Safety cards/educational leaflets with all purchases, support the customer.¬†
    • Every product holds a detailed description, helping you make the most informed choice for you and your precious one.¬†¬†
    • Our items are not designed to be teethers for your child with sore gums or those cutting teeth. If your child needs relief from teething, please use appropriate teethers.
    • We understand you know your child best and advise ADULT SUPERVISION AT ALL TIMES. Your presence during play is the most effective way to ensure your child is safe

    Frequently Asked Questions

    If you cannot find the answer to your query below, please contact us.

    How can I pay?
    We’ve got options!  Shopify payments allows you to use your credit card or Visa debit card.  If you want to pay your order off, you can use Laybuy, Afterpay or Humm.

    I'm trying to use my rewards code or discount code at the checkout and it's not working - why not?
    A couple of possibilities!  The most common is that there is a value pack in your cart.  Because these are already discounted, rewards vouchers and discount codes aren't valid on these items.  You may also be using another code already (Shopify only allows one code per order), or you perhaps have the code wrong.  If you're not sure, flick us an email and we'll be happy to help you figure it out.

    Do you allow pick ups?
    Yes we do.  We allow pick ups from our Warehouse at 20C Lake Road, Frankton, Hamilton.  Please select pick up at the checkout and you will receive an email notification when your order is ready for collection, including the pick up hours.  If the hours do not suit, please email us and we will do what we can.  Please note that all pick ups are only during business hours.

    What’s your policy around privacy and my details?
    Your privacy is incredibly important to us.  We will not disclose or sell your information or anyone … even if they ask really nicely.  Credit card details are not stored anywhere.  You can check out our full privacy policy here.
