Some things we choose not to sell for personal reasons and some are for legal reasons. All decisions made by Childcycle are final.
Please do not take it personally if we do not accept one of your items. We are picky so that as a seller your stuff will have the best chance of selling and as a buyer you can trust that when you get home you will not be disappointed in your purchase.
