Toyday Empty Basket Bug Fixed

We recently had reported issues from customers that were unable to add our toys to their baskets, or having their shopping baskets disappear altogether when shopping on our site. (How the online world is so different to our tangible world!)

Well, without getting too technical, I'm glad to announce that this problem should now be fixed. For those of you that wish to know, the problem was due to a bit of programming logic that tried to work out if the user was a real human, or a search engine spider, and stopped the session if it thought that a search engine had got caught up in the shopping basket. Unfortunately, due to the more advanced and complex browsers and their various toolbars, our shopping cart was causing havoc with actual buyers carts because it was unable to tell the difference between a computer and a human!

It was a tough problem to crack, because it only affected a few people with different set ups, and we had to do a lot of detective work before we knew where to start. May I thank all of our frustrated customers that encountered this issue for taking the time to contact us and provide us with feedback, so we were able to delve deep and get to the root of the problem, so shopping with us should be a pleasure for everyone.

If you encounter any technical issues or bug reports with our site, please contact us at customerservice@toyday.co.uk with the details.

Going Limited

As of the 1st of July Toyday will be a limited company and we will now be known as Toyday Toy Shop Ltd. Adam and myself will become company directors with a 50% share each.It's a big step for us but is the next one!

This means lots of things to get sorted by the end of the month along with the VAT return being due. Plus we are moving house which is involving alot of DIY. This all means we are two very tired people.

The good thing about having all these deadlines apon us is that soon the dust will have settled and we can sit back and enjoy the sunshine in our new garden.

My Work Experience at Toyday By Miriam

My name is Miriam, I’m 17 years old and I’m Italian.

For two weeks I’m having my first work experience at Toyday.

The shop is very nice: The people are polite and friendly in the shop.

During the day I do some jobs: I work with a computer and I print orders that the customers place, I serve the customers and I put stamps on the letters that are used to ship the goods to the customers.

Some days I tidy the shop, I put the goods on shelves and I put the price on the goods. One day I made an inventory.

In Toyday you can find traditional and classic toy but if you are a collector of small traditional toys, in Toyday you can find a large choice of toys.

I was astonished when on the first day I discovered that in the shop there are toys for every age and for every type of child, and there is a large choice of toys.

I think I’m very lucky to work at Toyday and I’m very happy to have my first work experience in this shop because I think that I’m learning the main things for working in a shop and improve my English. I would like to thank the customer and the staff of the shop that help me with kindness when I need something or I don’t understand the English language.

New Supplier

We have discovered a new supplier of wooden toys and baby toys. The wooden toys have yet to be photographed before they can be added to the website but some new baby toys are up already.

We have a selection of new soft baby books that are great value.

Something I saw at a friends house, that Blake loved, is a mirror that roles along that they can chase which around 6 months is a great way to encorage them to crawl and I was quite pleased to find a version. We also get asked for keys for babies all the time, well now we have them!
