What Delivery Options Are Offered?

Lilliputs provides two delivery options:

Are there any limits to parcel size?

Yes, the following limitations apply:

  1. There is 30Kg volumetric limit on each parcel calculated based on dimensions and weight of the product. All individual products available online conform to this, however, when ordering a large number of items, the order may have to be split into two or more separate parcels. If the order amount is over the required free shipping for multiple parcels, delivery will be free even if split e.g. An order for Local delivery of R1,700.00 will attract free shipping for up to 3 parcels. An order of R2,500.00 for Regional or Outlying delivery will attract free shipping of up to 2 parcels
  2. We do carry items that are above the 30Kg volumetric limit such as outdoor Jungle Gyms etc. These products are listed on the site and highlighted as available "In Store Only" for collection from our Rosebank branch.  Should you interested in having an "In Store Only" item couriered to you, we are happy to obtain a quote on your behalf.

What is the legal trading name of Lilliputs?


How long has Lilliputs been in operation?

Lilliputs has been in operation since 1957, making us the oldest independent toy store in South Africa.

Where does the name Lilliputs come from?

The name Lilliputs, comes from the famous literary work "Gulliver's Travels" by Jonathan Swift and refers to the fictional island of Lilliput, the land of the little people.  Gulliver's Travels will be celebrating its 300 year publication anniversary in 2026.  It is this rich history, reference to the little people and vivid imagery that underpins Lilliputs Toys. 

Do you have physical stores?

Yes.  We have 2 physical stores.  One located in Rosebank Mall and the other in Hyde Park Mall.  Whilst we are happy dealing with you online, we would certainly prefer to welcome you in person.

Do you offer a concierge service?

Yes.  Both in store (in person or telphonically) or on-line (via our chat, e-mail or social media pages).  We understand that it can be daunting to select just the right gift for that special little someone and, to be honest, no other toy store can offer the decades of experience that Lilliputs can.  We'll ask you a few questions and help guide you in selecting the perfect gift which you can purchase either in store or online.
