I’ve had orders from them sent separately before so wouldn’t chance PM or PW. Paid €20 postage but got >100 books so even with the postage it’s a bargain

Thanks a mill for the heads-up got a huge amount for just under 50 including two lots of Julia Donaldson books that are a great present for any toddler if anyone's looking for one.

I'd echo that, can't remember if definitely this company or not, but got badly stung before ordering books to PW, ended up paying seven separate PW fees on one order

When you see that their stg/eur exchange rate is about 5% better than your credit card and even with a delivery fee v free delivery to parcel motel, there is little or no difference buying in euro and getting it delivered to your door rather than parcel motel

I got 31 books.
2 art sets.
5 x (22 pencil sets) handy for gifts / party bags
2 cbeebies number block sets.
Missed out on a lot of other great bargain puzzles and games as they sold out fast but happy with what I got!
All for €30 using the AFSUPER35 then €9.99 deliver so for all the books it's a bargain have 3 kids so covered them all in that order! €40 for the lot.

Also use code “ AFSUPER35 “ for extra 35% off over €40 spend I think.

Note:- They went into administration back in December but says all orders will be fulfilled.

€9 ROI delivery, could cheaper with Revolut and parcel motel/address pal but would be worried about the weight if ordering sets

David Walliams book set out if stock but the audio book cds set is still available

Forgot they were on their last legs, always so handy at that winter festive period (that might be too early to talk about in March), when my kids were young. Some great deals to be had.
