  • Suspension of Express Delivery Services

    We regret that due to holidays the express delivery services will be suspended until Monday 3rd Julyl 2017, we apologise if this causes any inconvenience.

    Between the 23th and 2nd July our hardworking back office team will still able to offer a standard delivery service on all stocked items, so provided you have planned ahead then we can still take and deliver your order, albeit somewhat slower than we would normally.

    Thank you for your understanding

  • Book Week Fund Raising For Your School

    16/01/17

    With Book week just around the corner here at Stuff 4 Fun we are pleased to announce that once again in 2017 we will be running the “Raise Funds for Your School” Promotion.

    If you are busy raising money for your School we know how hard it can be, Fete’s, Cake Stalls, Raffles, jumble sales, the list of ideas is never-ending, but most also involve a great deal of your time and energy. So why not make your life just a little easier? Here at Stuff 4 Fun we came up with a great idea five years ago to help by offering to add to your fund raising efforts.

    As we know many School’s like to encourage their Children to dress-up for a Special Day during Book Week, it could be as a Character from their favourite book such as Alice In Wonderland or Peter Pan or a figure from days gone by, perhaps a Renaissance or Victorian Costume. At Stuff 4 Fun there are plenty of ideas to choose from.

    Still interested? Then here’s how it works. All you need to do if you want to take part is register your School with us, we will then issue you with a special promotion code valid until Book Week; next step is to let your parents know through your weekly newsletter about your unique code and let them know that Stuff 4 Fun are supporting your fundraising this year. The parents then select their costume in the normal way from those displayed on our website and place their order with us using your unique code, this means we can instantly associate this order with your school.

    Once the promotion has finishes we will total up all the orders processed that have used your unique school code and will issue a cheque or other agreed form of payment to the value of 10% to an authorised and nominated school account. It couldn’t be easier.

    So if you want to take part initially contact us via the enquiry form on our website, or by email at enquiries@stuff4fun.co.uk, we will then do our part and initiate the code.

    But don’t hang around, the sooner you are registered the quicker you can let your parents know and they can plan ahead. Whilst we will make every effort to maintain our stocks to ensure a great choice of costumes for Book Week as normal we expect stocks to become scarce with our Supplier the closer we get to the event. We look forward to hearing from you.

  • Stuff 4 Fun Fancy Dress, all part of the National Elf Service this Christmas?

    Posted 05/12/2016

    Everyone knows that Santa is very busy this time of year and will need all the help he can get to meet and greet everyone that wants to see him, and at Stuff 4 Fun we have some great Elf costumes for his little or big helpers who want to be part of Santa’s National Elf Service and they are proving to be a big favourite.

    The children’s Littler Helper Elf Fancy Dress is only £10.95 and makes an ideal costume for the festive season whether they want to dress up for the School party or join in the fun at home with the family. This great Unisex outfit includes a green tunic top with printed black belt with gold buckle, red collar with a printed measuring tape around the shoulders. To complete the costume there is a pair of green and white striped trousers and a matching green and white striped hat with red trim.

    The adult his and hers Elf costume is great favourite for those attending Santa’s grotto this year and at only £9.95 for the Tunic it is a bargain buy, but don’t forget to add the Elf Shoes and Hat to make it a complete ensemble.

    For the more adventurous ladies out there we also have some grown up Elf costumes that are guaranteed to keep Santa interested this Christmas, so if you plan to give him more than a mince pie and Sherry on Christmas Eve then these might be for you.

    Don’t leave it too late to buy yours, they sell fast and are not always easy to re-stock from the manufacturer this time of year once they sell out – if it is still on our website then we still have some stock left.

  • Dressing Up For Charity

    24/08/15

     If you are planning to raise money for Charity this spring then why not do it in style and stand out from the crowd in a Stuff 4 Fun fancy dress costume.

    That is just what these two satisfied customers did when they set out to raise some money for the Stroke Association by Abseiling down the side of Battersea Power Station.

    Dressed as Mario and Luigi in our officially licence costumes they not only had a great time but they also managed to raise over £500 in sponsorship for the good cause.

    The Mario Brothers costumes are still available from Stuff 4 Fun, but are limited to the stock remaining as they have now been discontinued by the manufacturer, but there are plently of costumes and ideas to choose from so take a look -  perhaps you want to do a Del and Rodney by dressing as Batman and Robin, the choices are almost endless.

     

     

  • Now Book Week is over what’s next?

    08/03/15

    As always Book Week was a great success and one of the peak seasons for Fancy Dress as Schools all over the Country encourage their pupils to dress up as a character from their favourite book to celebrate World Book Day.

    By far the most popular costumes this year were from our Licenced Disney range, but not far behind was Harry Potter and we were surprised how many Darth Vaders went out. Now how that fits into Book Week is anyone’s guess, is there a Star Wars book? Or was it just a film and TV series, I suppose if there is no particular theme then anything goes.

    Anyway with Book Week behind us it is time to think ahead, with Easter just over a month away we think it is a great time to promote the fantastic “Lil Wabit” costumes, a much better choice of Easter Present than chocolate eggs for those little treasures in your life.

    So why not take advantage of a whopping 25% discount off our Web price for these fantastic Boy and Girl Easter Bunny costumes in blue and pink. Available in three sizes for ages from “New Born” to 18 months.

    Don’t miss out, the promotion is valid while stocks last or until Easter Monday 6tht April 2015.

    At last we have all the Frozen Costumes back on stock, deliveries in the last few days means that once again we can offer the highly popular Deluxe Costumes of Elsa and Anna from stock and also have good availabilty of the Anna and Elsa Classic costumes, but take heed because they are selling fast.

  • Nearly Time for Christmas

    20/12/13

    Nearly time for the big Ho Ho Ho and here at Stuff 4 Fun we are starting to get into the Christmas Spirit with our Christmas Dinner taking place last night at our local Chinese restaurant, everyone including David our talented Website designer and IT Support specialist from D3ewy had their fill of the fantastic food and beverages on offer.

  • Stuff 4 Fun Same Day Despatch Saves the Day

    Posted 28/11/2013

    The launch of our Same Day despatch pledge linked with our new premium delivery services earlier this month has proved a huge hit with our customers.

    Mrs Angela C of Nuneaton was so delighted with our service that she phoned to thank us. She told us that she wanted to get her 5 year old daughter the Disney Princess Rapunzel Deluxe costume for her birthday after her friend had got one. Angela had visited the local shopping centre hoping to pick one up but couldn’t find the costume anywhere on the high street so ended up ordering it on-line from one of our larger competitors who claimed to have it on stock. She waited for over a week but her order didn’t arrive so resorted to phoning them and it turned out that they didn’t have it after all and were waiting for a delivery themselves. Needless to say she asked for refund.

    With just a couple of days to go to her daughter’s birthday she found Stuff 4 Fun on a google search and saw our pledge and rang to check we had it available. It didn’t take long to identify the costume and confirm we could deliver. She took advantage of our next day service and was so delighted when the costume arrived the next day at 9:30am that she rang back to thank us.

    As a thank you for her compliment and using her story we gave her a discount code for 10% off her next purchase and she has already claimed it on a Junior Anakin Skywalker costume for her sons Christmas stocking. Needless to say this time she selected our standard delivery, curious we checked and this too was delivered just 2 days after the order was placed.

    Where we can often beat our larger competitors is that as a family run business we personally control the stock, so if we need to add some items or re-order popular lines we just do it. The larger companies have buyers with systems and procedure to follow and often targets to reduce stock. All this, plus they often suffer from cash flow issues can prevent an order being placed when it is needed. As our owner and Head of Fun Alan said, we do not need to worry about a bank overdraft so as long as the demand is there we will maintain our stocks and give our customers what they want when they need it, so with our new same day despatch pledge we can now give our customers a quick and hassle free delivery.

    If you too would like to receive a 10% discount off your next order for a Stuff 4 Fun Fancy Dress costume why not do as Angela did. Phone or email us with your good news story on how Stuff 4 Fun saved your day, we promise to try to use it in our News Updates and for your trouble we will give you a discount code so you too can grab a bargain on your next order with us.

  • Stuff 4 Fun Fancy Dress for this year’s Christmas Nativity Play

  • Fancy Dress News From the North Pole

    Posted 14/11/2013


    It’s that time of year again when Santa is getting ready to delight everyone and his Suits are in big demand with Stuff 4 Fun having the pick of the best for our customers to choose from. No matter what your budget our Santa Suits are great value for your money.

    As you would expect the more you pay for something the better the quality and that is true at Stuff 4 Fun, our extensive range of Santa’s are priced from £29.94 for the Flannel suit, a very authentic looking costume ideal for those who want a great suit on a limited budget, to £299.96 for the Super Deluxe Old time Santa Suit with hood, a truly fantastic Costume that even Father Christmas himself would be proud to wear.

    By choice we don’t stock or sell the very cheap and dare we say tacky products out there on the market as we firmly believe that if you are going to do a job then you do it well, and if you are representing the great man himself we don’t want you to disappoint the young people around the country who have been looking forward to this time of year so they can meet him.

    We are pleased to report from our stock cavern that Santa sales are up on last year, and delighted that we can still offer availability on most options with new stock arriving almost daily, unlike last year when we very quickly sold out of the popular premium suits and were unable to replenish from the manufacturer who was taken by surprise by the demand.

    The rule is that if it is on the website it’s still on stock and you can get your Santa in time for this Christmas. But don’t leave it too late because we would hate to disappoint and don’t forget that you can now also  get your purchase much quicker by selecting one of our new enhanced delivery options at the checkout.

  • Stuff 4 Fun Offers Fancy Dress on Same Day Despatch

    Posted 12/11/2013

    Stuff 4 Fun are pleased to announce the launch of our Same Day Despatch service which now includes a whole new range of delivery options including Priority, Express, Next Working Day and Saturday Morning.

    Our goal is to process and despatch all orders on the same day we receive them during the working week, remembering that our working day cut off is 2.00pm for same day despatch. Orders received after 2:00pm, over the weekend or bank holidays will be shipped the next working day.

    How can we do this? Well unlike many of our competitors who rely on wholesalers to hold stock, Stuff 4 Fun has invested over the past two years in an extensive range of stock which we hold in our forward stock location for immediate order fulfilment.

    Alan our Head of Fun and business owner says, “What we have discovered over the past few years of trading is that many customers leave ordering their costumes until the last minute, so unless you have a good range of stock available they will look elsewhere. It has taken a while to build a credible stock profile, but we now list 100’s of costumes on our stock profile and believe we have a very comprehensive range to offer our discerning customers”.

    So whether you are looking for a Disney Cinderella, Snow White or Sleeping Beauty Costume for the little Princess in your life, or a good quality Santa Claus outfit to use this year on your Christmas round, you will be able to find it on the Stuff 4 Fun website and order it in confidence knowing that it is on the shelf waiting to be despatched to you.
