Placing Orders

We are restocking as often and as quickly as our suppliers are able to ship our orders to us. Many of our toys are from small manufacturers or are handmade, and most are imported from across the globe leaving them subject to delays outside our control. 

To receive notification when an item is restocked, click the NOTIFY ME WHEN AVAILABLE button on the product page and enter your email address. This is the best way to be informed when the items you want are available again for purchase. 

If the NOTIFY ME WHEN AVAILABLE function is not working, please use a browser without ad-blockers or anti-tracking extensions installed.

If you need help with alternative gift ideas, please send us a message at hello@oompa.com or chat! We are always happy to make recommendations!

Common Product Questions

It is normal for the Grimm's tunnels to appear uneven across the bottom while still in the shrink-wrap. When the wrapping is removed, the pieces will settle to sit flush on a flat surface, revealing the unique curve of their hand-cut arches! 

Cut from a single block of wood, a tunnel may be asymmetrical with natural wood textures and markings, gaps between the arches, and a front and back; the pieces will stack best when all the arches are oriented in the same direction. If an arch does not fit, simply turn it around!

Grimm's Tunnels are a bit of a puzzle, sparking spatial reasoning and problem solving skills. Do not use downward force to stack the pieces. 

Our Bolga Basket selection varies with every shipment we receive. Each basket is one-of-a-kind and hand made by skilled artisans.  

The color and pattern combinations vary greatly by artist and basket. Our current selection is bold and bright colors. 

Exact size and shape will vary.  Baskets are easily reshaped by soaking in water (avoid getting leather covered handle wet), and air dried. 

Wishbone has clever packaging!

You will see two boxes with parts: Box 1 and Box 2.

Box 3 is inside Box 1. It is a small cylinder and contains the wheel.

Box 4 refers to the outer shipping box and is not needed for assembly.
