Because at times we all need a little reassurance.

At Vintage Playtime we recognise that buying online can sometimes prove a tad daunting - simply because it doesn't offer you the opportunity to meet your seller in person nor examine their products first-hand. So, if you are having second thoughts about buying from our online shop, or are just interested to see what people have to say about the service that we offer, then please read the following feedback kindly provided by some of our valued customers.



But if that wasn't enough to convince you, then why not watch a recording of the The Alan Titchmarsh Show, aired on the 12th November 2013, when Christopher McClure of www.vintage-playtime.com made a guest appearance? We think you'll love it!



"I did start to buy the game from your website but then I found the game cheaper on Etsy, which as it turned out was the wrong choice to make. Your company obviously provide a very good service and I will remember you for future purchases. Thank you."

- Ms Mackinson of Birmingham, UK


"First I would like to thank you for sending Wide World so quickly and safely. Also, thank you for the welcome letter and voucher."

- Mrs Harrod of Leicestershire, UK


"As promised, I am letting you know that I have literally just opened my order from you. I am absolutely delighted with the 1949 Totopoly board and the spare No. 2 black horse which you kindly gave me. I was also impressed with the meticulous way my order was packed. Thank you ever so much. As I said in an earlier email, I am sure that I shall do further business with you in the future. Thank you very much also for adding me to your links page which I have viewed. A very kind gesture which I really appreciate."

- Mr Shortall of Kent, UK


"I have been remiss in not contacting you to inform you that the two packages of games (one with the 1910 and 1957 editions of L'Attaque and the second with the 1930 edition of Dover Patrol) arrived safely and speedily. The 1910 edition of L'Attaque is magnificent. I am stunned by its condition, especially given it is roughly a century old. I would like to thank you for these amazing transactions. You secured the spectacular 1910 version of L'Attaque from a contact to meet my specific request. All of the photographs that you provided me faithfully demonstrated the quality of the products. I was also assured by your policy of only selling games that are complete and in good or better condition unless indicated. You will definitely be my preferred source for vintage games in the future. Purchasing games on eBay or other online sites is hit and miss.  The descriptions can be bafflingly confusing, with a game described as in "excellent" condition and then specific components described as in "good" or "acceptable" condition. Also, the pictures can be deliberately misleading, with pictures technically showing flaws so that the seller can point to them in case of a dispute but taken so that the extent of the flaw is understated.Thank you again."

- Mr Wills of Ontario, Canada


"I am so impressed with how quick you respond! Thank you."

- Mrs Keesee of Ohio, USA


"All done - many thanks indeed. That's another generation set up with Tri-Tactics!"

- Mr Duxbury of Hampshire, UK


"Many thanks for my electronic version of the rules for Spear's Wildlife board game.  My son will be delighted with them. Very quick service."

- Mrs Searle of North Yorkshire, UK


"Ordered and paid. Thank you so much for the excellent service"

- Mr Haines of Cambridgeshire, UK


"I have been delighted with all aspects of my transactions and will always use your company where appropriate for my needs. Thanks again for all of your help and honesty."

- Mr Smith of Nottingham, UK


"Although not yet received the items, I really enjoyed the customer service on the telephone and clearly went away feeling that the company has real passion for the products and real interest in the customer. Thank you."

- Dr Chakraverty of Shropshire, UK


"I would like to say what a pleasure it has been to use your company. Sarah has gone beyond the opening times to get a set of rules over to me and it is very much appreciated! Thank you! I will certainly be using the website for further game purchases; so happy to have found you."

- Mrs Oliver of Berkshire, UK


"Your parcel arrived safely today and the game is in perfect condition, thank you very much for packing it so carefully!  I can't wait to give it as a Christmas present. Thank you again for all your kind help with this, it has been an absolute pleasure dealing with you and your company."

- Mrs Wicks of Birmingham, UK

- Mr Callan of Jersey, Channel Islands


"Thank you for the Slap Stick game which arrived today. I was grinning from ear to ear when I opened it and can't wait to show my brothers and sisters with whom I used to play it. We are all in our 50s and 60s but I'm sure we will just have just as much fun playing it as we did all those years ago. Thanks once again for finding this game."

- Mrs Lye of London, UK


"My 1938 Buccaneer has just arrived - delivered safely thanks to your careful wrapping. What a treasure! Thank you very much indeed."
