MonkiBox Shipping Policy


Thank you for choosing MonkiBox to assist with your child’s early development needs. Here are the terms & conditions of our shipping policy. Please read carefully before making a purchase so you know what to expect.


When will I receive my order?

We process and dispatch all orders the next business working day after the order is placed. Any orders placed on Saturday and Sunday will be processed on Monday.  After an order is dispatched, the time it takes to get delivered to you depends on the destination and shipping options selected at checkout. It usually takes 3-5 business days for domestic (UAE) and 5-7 business days for GCC shipments to get delivered once dispatched. In the event of a high order volume, your order might be delayed a few days. Please be prepared for this possibility as you make your purchase. In the case of any significant shipping delays, we’ll contact you using the email or phone number you provided during checkout.


Do you ship internationally?

Yes, we do ship internationally. Upon checkout, you can select your destination country and see the different shipping options with rates.


How much does it cost to ship?

Domestic: We are happy to offer free domestic shipping across the UAE for orders above AED200. With standard free shipping, products are expected to arrive within seven days of placing your order, though sometimes we experience delays.

International: All orders to KSA are shipped free if the order value is above AED200. We also offer subsidized shipping rates for GCC countries. 


International Duties & Charges

There may be additional charges/duties levied by the destination country for international shipments. For certain destinations, you can choose to pay these at checkout or pay in cash at the time of delivery to the courier. For other countries, these charges need to be paid in cash at the time of delivery.
