Christmas Delivery Cut-Offs

To ensure you receive your order in time for Christmas please take into account our delivery times.

  • Domestic (USA) Orders - our free service is shipped via USPS Media Mail, which can take up to 8 days to arrive. We do not recommend using this service if you are buying as a gift for Christmas. We offer USPS Priority and Priority Express which can be selected at the checkout. These services take between 1 and 3 working days to arrive. 
  • International Orders - unfortunately we cannot currently guarantee any international orders will arrive before Christmas. If you are an international customer and are keen to have an order shipped, please contact us and we may be able to provide a quote for shipping your order with an express courier.

We will be shipping orders until the Monday 23rd December, after which our offices will be closed for the Holidays. Any orders placed after this date will be shipped the following Monday 30th when we reopen.

Christmas Returns

Outside of our normal returns policy we will accept unwanted Christmas gifts up to the 17th January 2014 for an exchange or store credit.

Gift Ideas

  • Our best value and most popular gift is of course the full collection of Animation Show of Shows Box Sets. This set contains 162 award-winning films and is the best and most diverse collection of animated shorts available on DVD in the world.
  • For the animation student or fan our Giants' First Steps DVD is an excellent choice. This is the newest addition to our range, and contains 25 student films from some of animation's biggest names. The filmmakers featured on this DVD went on to direct movies at Pixar, Disney, DreamWorks and BlueSky and this collection of films simply cannot be found anywhere else.
