Yet again i have read on here about another mum let down by an online retailer. I think we should create a list of good reliable retailers that we as mums and dads can recommend. If everyone can list their top 5 online retailers we then compile a list at the end.

I'll start.

1. www.kiddicare.com
2. www.koochycoo.com
3. www.funkymoose.co.uk
4. www.mothercare.co.uk
5. www.jellybabys.co.uk

www.bumpto3.com

www.johnlewis.com
www.vikingkids.co.uk

Both deliver quickly and for free. I just wrote about vikingkids on another post, I've ordered from them a few times and think their stuff is really good (only tried the outdoor range).

I have always found:
Ocado
John Lewis
Amazon
The Book People

to be good.

dancingqueen78 Sat 02-May-09 14:21:00

Oh yes, Amazon definitely!

Strawberry, it's .co.uk for VikingKids I think smile

OldLadyKnowsNothing Sat 02-May-09 14:26:03

Amazon, and my favourite for bedsheets and towels, King of Cotton. Brilliant customer service.

Little Sunflowers are fantastic. I ordered a Bob and Blossom gift set for a friend's new ds & B&B sent them the wrong one. The one they sent to Little Sunflowers included a hat and was £8 more expensive. Little Sunflowers sent me the more expensive set for no extra charge as they didn't want to delay the order. I think they're a great company.

www.monkeymccoy.co.uk have a great selection cute kids clothes and gifts by No Added Sugar, Bob & Blossom and many more brands. Some items still in the sale going for up to 50% off!! very cheap. Also new season just arrived. I love it x

jimbotri Mon 01-Jun-09 22:38:18

I've had 2 bad experiences with John Lewis online recently. Both times I paid to have something delivered on a certain day (paying £7 extra for this) and it didn't turn up. They were very apologetic, blamed the couriers, and refunded delivery charges, but it was really annoying.

bookdepository.co.uk
Usually cheaper than Amazon and free delivery anywhere in the world.
