Is it your first time shopping at Owlkids Online Shop?

Welcome! We’re here to provide you an easy and safe shopping experience. To place your first order:

    1. Browse or search through the list of available items
    2. Select the items that you wish to purchase by adding them to your shopping cart
    3. Proceed to checkout by providing us with shipping and payment details. By completing these few steps, your order is out the door and on its way to you. If you're still not comfortable, we are more than happy to fill your order through phone, fax or mail.


    How do I find items?

    You have two different solutions: Browse and Search
      1. Easy as strolling through a store, you can browse our website using the categories listed in the top navigation bar. You can click on any item to reach the detailed product page holding all the information you’ll need to place your order.
      2. Search: Keywords typed into our Search Box (on the top right corner) will bring up matching results for each word. If you enter "Chickadee" into the Search Box, it will return results for Chickadee, wherever the word is found in the shopping cart including book, e-book and magazine titles, and within descriptions.


      How do I add items or review what is in my shopping cart?

        One click will be enough. Every item on our site includes an "Add to Cart" button. Clicking this button places that item in your shopping cart, waiting for your final decision. You can then check the contents of your shopping cart at any time by clicking the "Cart" icon in the top right corner. On this page, you have several options. You can:

          • "Delete" items,
          • Change the quantity of each item,
          • Check shipping charges.

         Note: When changing quantity, remember to click “Update” to register the change.  Please note that this is not necessarily a final tally, as coupons and gift certificates can still be applied during the checkout process. From “Cart”, you can continue shopping or "Check Out."


          How do I check out my final order?

            When you are done shopping, click the "Check Out" button at the bottom right of your Shopping Cart page. This will take you to our account page where New Customers can create an account or Returning Customers can sign in.


              New Customers

                You must create an account that securely stores all of the information we need to process your order. This will also speed up the check out time of all your future purchases. You’ll just have to tell us your email address, your last name and your physical address to create an account. The mandatory field will be highlighted if you try to continue without filling the fields. We will use the email address to communicate with you about any orders placed using this account. Please ensure that your email address is active; we will send you an email to create your password.
