Non existent customer service
The worse customer service I have ever encountered from any retailer. I've had no answer to phone calls, no reply to voicemails and no reply (other than automated responses) from emails. Also, the most confusing website which doesn't seem to allow the use of a gift voucher and additional payment option for one order.
Waste of money
Drink bottle lasted a couple of months then just leaked every where. Ruining school books and soaking floors. Rip off.
I bought 2 backpacks on special earlier this year. One Basketball backpack is fine. The other Playstation one looks terrible. The inside black lining is all peeling off. My kids live in Melbourne and have only used their bags for 1 term. Very poor quality for the price. I will not buy them again.
Worst online shopping experience ever, bags with a chemical smell.
I bought two bags and two bottles for my kids. I've placed my order on 31st Dec and until 7th Jan my order's status was still under 'Order received and awaiting despatch'. I contacted the customer services on 7th Jan, and I received an email said my order has been shipped in the afternoon. I thought everything is ok. However, I received another email to explain one of my good (Deja Vu Drink Bottle) is out of stock, but I check their website, both of my selected bottles are in stocks and it's even cheaper than the price I've purchased. I've cont...acted their customer's services and they said it's because of their system. I wrote again to ask how come the bottle still in stock and no one ever answers me again. And I finally received the bags yesterday. The bag's design is cute but with a chemical smell. Overall the shopping experience with Smiggle is very bad.

Smiggle Squishies - expensive and bad quality
I bought the Catpuccino squishy, because - cat and coffee... who wouldn't. It looked adorable, was soft and slow rising and was lightly coffee-ish fragranced. Trouble was after a few squishes - and hey squishies are meant to be, well, squished, the paint started peeling. I will have to repaint it.
Expensive, bad quality
- Online store
Online purchases were straight forward but you have to make sure you read the discounts properly as some dont apply to certain products.. pricey overall and you pay for the colours and 'brand' but quality is pretty average. Kids love it so we try to buy items that wont break straight away like diaries to write/draw in.
Waste of Money! No value!
Unfortunately my kids like Smiggles products. So I purchased 2 watches, smelly felts, wrist band & school bag. After 24hours ...The Front of the watch falls off often! the watch stops working! The pencil case the felts came in has fallen apart after 7 days and very little use. The school bag threads apart. So it is all poorly made! With a high mark up price! The same value a a cheap $2 or Reject Shop product but 10 times the price.
We wont shop there again.
