We are taking a bit of a break after christmas. The site will still be will be able to browse and buy, but you may not get your order delivered until after January 5th 2009. Many of our sellers will still send things out before then, but many won't.

If you need to get in touch with us from Christmas Day until the 5th, please do email, and we will reply, but we will be operating on summer holiday time.

Thanks you to every one who has supported toggle over 2008. We have had a great year and have had so much fun with toggle. We always love to hear from you and any feedback you might have about your toggle experience, so feel free to write to us with any suggestions or thoughts.

We also have great people waiting to come on board in the new year, so if you are looking for new things you haven't seen before the end of Jan would be a great time to have a look at the site. We list new things on the front page so you can easily find them.
