Returns + Exchange
What is Cuddle Buddy's return policy?
We offer a 60 day period from when you first receive the pillow. You can return your product only if it has not been used. We will gladly accept a return if you have changed your mind for any reason subject to the following conditions... Items must be returned within 60 days of purchase together with proof of purchase... Items must be in their original condition. Please do not send items back without first contacting us.
Who is responsible for postage fees in the event of a return?
Where items are returned due to faults, we will absolutely issue a full refund for the purchase including any original postage fees paid. For 'change of mind' returns the value of the refund will be to the value of the product only. Sometimes we're not able to tell from photos or evidence provided whether there is in fact a fault. If this happens we'll provide you with a pre-paid returns label in good faith to ship your pillow/s back to us but we will need to assess whether we believe a fault exists once your items return to our premises. If we determine that there is no fault you may be required to pay a re-shipping fee to have the item sent to you again.
How do I return a pillow?
To return an item you’ve ordered you will need to request a pre-paid returns label. To do so, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘RETURNS’ in the subject line and be sure to include your contact details, order number and reason for the return in the body of the email. If the return is due to a product fault please also include a photo of the item. For all approved exchanges or returns we will issue you with a pre-paid returns label which you will receive via the email address entered when placing your order. You can print and take it along to the post office to send your return. Once the return is received at HQ it will be reviewed and after being cleared you will receive a refund for the purchase price. If the return is for a change of mind you will be refunded the product value less any associated shipping charges (original and return shipping) but with our pre-paid return labels you'll be getting the lowest possible shipping rates. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer change of mind return labels for international customers. We endeavour to process refunds as soon as they are received but please allow up to 3 business days for returns to be processed. You will receive an email notification of any refund once it has been processed.We recommend using a traceable delivery method and taking note of your tracking number. We cannot be held responsible for lost returns.
What if I have received something faulty?
Firstly, we are incredibly sorry. There's nothing worse than opening a parcel only to find your item isn't what you expected. Follow the returns process and attach a photo of the fault. If still in stock we will replace the item for you otherwise we will issue a full refund upon receiving your return. Please be sure to contact us regarding any faults within 60-days of your order to ensure we are able to assist with issuing a refund.

Are weighted blankets suited to infants and toddlers?
Weighted blankets shouldn’t be used with infants and toddlers. They can pose safety risks for very young children.
Why would I use a weighted blanket?
Weighted blankets are designed to relieve stress and create a sense of calm. They do that by providing pressure on the body.They work in a way that’s similar to an Occupational Therapist technique called Deep Touch Pressure Therapy. Pressure on the body can increase the release of serotonin in the brain. This neurotransmitter is sometimes called the “happy” chemical because it creates a sense of calm and well-being.
Why are there 3 different weights?
The blanket weight should be around 10-15% of your body weight. Please refer below for a rough guide:
70kg or Less - 7kg
70kg - 90kg - 9kg
90kg or More - 11kg
How do I wash my blanket?
Mink Cover: the blankets mink covers are removable. Just unzip the cover and remove from the blanket. You can then either spot clean, hand wash or wash it in a washing machine on a gentle cycle with lukewarm water, however a front loader machine is recommended.
Bamboo Inner Blanket: cold machine was on gentle cycle, we advise that you check the weight capacity of your washing machine. Air dry only. Do not tumble dry. Do not bleach.
Why is their only a single size blanket?
The weighted blanket works best as a single size. This is because the distribution of the weight will be most effective being used by one person. If a bigger size was made, for it to be effective the weight would have to be distributed for a second person, and a blanket of 20kg+ can pose safety problems.
