A. The very youngest we can fit is roughly 11 months old babies.  This does however depend on the size of the child.

Q. How long is the rental period?

A. For collection in store the hire period is 2-3 days. For example, if you collect in store on the Friday or the Saturday after 2pm the outfit is due back on Monday before 2pm (we are closed on Sundays).  If collecting mid week the hire period is 2 days ie collection on Monday the retund day shall be Wednesday. Longer hire periods can be arranged at an additional cost.

If you would like to have your outfit delivered we take into account that your outfit must be delivered in advance.  If you select to have your outfit delivered on the Thursday the collection will be on the Monday as our couriers do not work at weekends.
