A resource is a box of items, such as a topic box or an individual item such as a scooter or playframe. Depending on your subscription type you will be allocated either 6, 16, 36 or 64 resources to use on an annual basis.

Please refer to our terms and conditions of membership. Please contact us when you discover the loss, damage or fault with a resource and remove it from use until we can arrange for it to be collected or replaced. We may ask you to purchase a replacement if we are unable to fix it or do not have a spare to replace it.

No. Unfortunately due to the cost of batteries and the amount of ICT items we have, we are unable to supply batteries with the items that need them. If you are unable to purchase them yourself, please call and speak with one of the team and we will do our best to help on 03301 651 160.

A High Value Resource (HVR) is mainly a piece of equipment that Emporium has sourced from Community Playthings. These pieces of equipment are expensive to purchase and are in need by most settings and families. Due to this we have had to put limitations on how the equipment is supplied to our customers.

Due to the nature of the Emporium loan service, you may find that a substantial amount of the High Value Resources will be on loan. All HVRs are now on a six month loan term to give a fairer service to all customers and for the chance of loaning larger items. Depending on which subscription and High Value Resource entitlements you have chosen, there is the opportunity to loan High Value Resources for a £30 charge for six months.

If you would like to enquire about an item, please contact one of the team on 03301 651 160 or email us at [email protected].

Deliveries & Collections

You will receive your order within 10 working days of placing it. One of the delivery team will notify you by email once your order is processed for delivery. This is normally two working days before your order is despatched. If you need further information please email or call one of the team.

We ask that you check through your order and report anything that is missing or that you are not sure of, on the day of delivery. We can then replace or action a return of any items that there is an issue with.

There may be multiple reasons why you are unable to order. Have you actioned a return of the items you currently have on loan? Do you know if your subscription is up to date? Have you used all of your subscription entitlements? If you would like to talk to someone, please call 03301 651 160.
