OP

They do not accept foreign credit cards -so your Australian credit card will not work and they do not ship to Australia. You would have to look at using one of the ship forwarding companies. And I think by the time they got it and then you paid for it to be shipped to AU - it would cost quite a bit and you may just miss out on the timing as well.

They do actually accept Australian credit cards and will ship to Australia.  There are two other threads about this, one in Misc and the other in Hot Deals.

My order took approx 3 weeks to arrive, I don't think I would trust it to arrive before Christmas.

I have ordered from them a couple of times and the longest time was 12 days.  This was last month so don't know how it would be on the lead up to Christmas.

To the PP, they are now delivering internationally and they do take Australian credit cards (I used my visa debit card) so no forwarding companies are needed.  wink.gif

They do ship here and accept Australian CC. They also have paypal.

But no, I don't think it would be here by Christmas. My order took just over three weeks and that was in November. I don't think I'd be trusting AusPost this time of year to be quick.

    How dogs could make children better readers

    Issues around children learning to read are rarely out of the news. Which is hardly surprising – becoming a successful reader is of paramount importance in improving a child's life chances. Nor is it surprising that reading creates a virtuous circle: the more you read the better you become. But what may come as a surprise is that reading to dogs is gaining popularity as a way of addressing concerns about children's reading.
