WAITING LIST INFORMATION

THERAPISTS: we're sorry, but OUR WAITING LIST IS NOW CLOSED

Reason for closing our waiting list 
 
We've been overwhelmed by so many orders that we can't take any more requests at this time.  The list is likely to stay closed for the next two years, after which we will post on the website and on our Facebook Page as to the date the next list will open.  We're sorry, but we're unable to keep your details until the list opens again.
Patterns 
Our patterns are only available to our registered team of knitters owing to liability and insurance issues.
 
 
Other ways to get worry monsters and/or hand puppets  
We suggest that you find a free worry monster pattern online and ask a knitting group local to you if they would kindly knit some for you.  Most knitting groups do knit for charity and that way there would be no postage costs.  If you're unsure of where to look, try your local library, which will often hold a "Knit and Natter" group, or alternatively you will find that many folk have mothers or grandmothers who can knit and might be willing to help.
 
IF YOU'RE ALREADY ON THE WAITING LIST

 
We will get to your order as soon as we can.  We are prioritizing urgent requests, so if you are on the list and you feel your need is urgent please get in touch.  To all those who have already waited several months we're really sorry, but we are going as fast as we can.  The charity is very small and run by only two people and everything is handmade for you.  If you no longer need our items it would be very helpful if you could please let us know, thank you.
 
Postage and Packing for those on the list 
The charity makes no profit.  The monsters and puppets are made entirely by volunteers, who not only devote their time and skills free of charge but also pay for the materials they use.  The only charge to therapists is for the actual cost of post, packaging and insurance, either:
  • £6.95 for a box of up to 5 worry monsters (plus hand puppets if requested and if available at the same time)
  • £3.95 for a box of hand puppets only.  Please note that if hand puppets are unavailable at the time that your monsters are ready there may be a further wait for the hand puppets, which may need to be sent separately later on.  In that case a separate invoice will be sent for p&p (£3.95) when the hand puppets become available.
We're sorry but we can't send out items until the p&p charge has been paid.  Payment is not due until your items are available, when payment details will be sent.

Terms and Conditions

Please note that our items are classed as therapy items, not toys.  They must not be given out to children to take away or keep, but used only under adult supervision.  Owing to small parts, children under 36 months should never be left alone with them.

We are only able to post items to UK addresses.

Please see HERE for our other terms and conditions
