SCHOOL INVOICE ORDERS: Our school invoicing system is not normally available for use by non-UK customers. However, in exceptional circumstances (e.g. if your school's payment procedures prohibit the use of a credit card), then we will provide goods for overseas schools, with a 30 day credit invoice, providing your establishment passes certain security checks. There is also an additional 'Overseas Banking Charge' of £10 for this service, to cover the banking costs we incur for accepting a bank payment in a foreign currency. Please email us at orders@learn2soar.co.uk if you wish to receive your goods with a 30 day invoice, along with the additional £10 charge.

UK Delivery

UK STANDARD DELIVERY (£1.99): All CD orders are usually dispatched via standard first class royal mail within 24 hours of the order being received. Therefore under normal circumstances most customers receive their orders within 1-3 working days. However at peak times of the year (October-November) please allow a little bit longer for your order to arrive.

UK NEXT WORKING DAY DELIVERY (£7.50): The option for UK customers to have their order delivered via "Next Day Delivery" is available for phone orders only on 0844 357 8473. However during times of heavy demand we reserve the right to withdraw this service without notice. Orders via Next Day Delivery must be placed before 2PM.


Overseas (Non-UK) Delivery

OVERSEAS [NON-UK] DELIVERY (£8.99) : NON-UK CUSTOMERS ARE ADVISED TO READ ALL THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION BEFORE BUYING FROM US:

1) OVERSEAS PAYMENT OPTIONS: Please see the adjoining 'How To Buy' tab for various payment options.

2) CUSTOMS DUTY CHARGES: We are not aware of any country in the world, which will charge you an additional customs charge, for you to receive delivery of any of our goods.

3) DELIVERY CHARGES & TIMESCALE: If you have ordered physical goods for delivery, £8.99 will be added to your order for delivery costs. (Downloadable products / licences have no delivery charge.) This £8.99 price is for the 'Royal Mail International Tracked & Signed Service'.

Deliveries will usually take 5-10 working days at the most to reach you. However, this timescale is not guaranteed. Please note that if you have ordered from a remote part of the world, your order may take up to four weeks to reach you.

If you require goods to reach you faster than the usual 5-10 days, then we do have express delivery options available, upon request, which can get the goods to you in 1-3 days.

Very very impressive
"I was immensely impressed with this enthralling Christmas musical play. The audience were completely captivated throughout. Even though we are a very large school there was something for everyone to do, be it acting, singing or dancing. The children got a great thrill from the songs and could often be heard singing them in the playground. The script was amazing. There were plenty of laugh out loud moments, but also a few tear jerkers. Through it all, the true meaning of Christmas was cleverly explained and I very much liked the way that by the end of the play the characters changed from being self-centred, to being loving and caring as part of one big family. A very, very impressive musical in keeping with the true spirit of Christmas."
by H Sneddon

A magical musical
"Your Christmas-Toy Story musical is one of the best children’s resources I’ve ever used. Period. The songs are spectacular, perfectly pitched and easy to pick up. The scripts are magical, not just in terms of the story, but in the way they are so skilfully woven together. Also the fact that there are even THREE script variations built according to children’s skill levels and that you can edit them without any restrictions, is a genius piece of marketing. The power point and sound effects were very helpful too. It makes it so easy for teachers like me to have everything good-to-go, saving precious time. The finished presentations were magical, with many parents commenting on how professional and polished the whole show was. Bravo Learn2soar Music."
by Joanne Baldwin

Brilliant
"Quick message to say my school did Christmas Toy Story last December, it was absolutely brilliant. Looking forward to using another piece of creative genius from your website which surely will be equally as good."
by T. Berry

X-Factor Winners
"Hi, Last year I purchased your Christmas Toy Story Cd with licence, but I only wanted to use one song. For our school’s Christmas concert each class had to perform one Christmas song. Any song of their choosing and the whole thing was called ‘The Christmas X-Factor Concert’. We had a judging panel and made it as much like the real show as we could. It was a great evening. My class used your Jingle Bell Rock song. We added a pretend rock band with drums, guitars and with everyone dressed as rock stars… and WE WON!!! Afterwards all the other teachers were asking where I had got the song from and when I showed them your CD, they all asked if we could so the entire musical this year. So that’s what we’re now planning to do. We’ve already started rehearsals and the pupils and teachers are loving it. It’s going to be amazing! I do have a question though. Given that we only used one song last year and didn’t actually perform the musical, can our licence be carried over to this year instead please? Thanking you in advance. | RESPONSE FROM LEARN2SOAR: Thank you Siobhan for your very kind words. I’m sure this year’s show will be a great success for you. Regarding your licence question, yes that sounds fine, but we still need to issue some paperwork. Just give our orders department a call on 0844 357 8473 and we will sort something out for you."
by Siobhan Murphy

Everyone Loved It!
"Hi there! We are so excited to purchase another play this year from Learn2soar! Last year, as the newly hired Children’s Director - and after a round of the flu among my family - I had less than two weeks to really put a play together. A Christmas-Toy Story worked wonderfully for us, and everyone loved it! It was really great for me to have a successful production so shortly after being hired. And, our congregation appreciated the true Christmas story being conveyed within the play. I love how the nativity is treated as [an optional] ‘play within a play’. Thanks very much! I am a big fan of your cute productions!"
by Marrit Zoll

Best we've ever used
"We've just held our final dress rehearsal for our 5th Grade Holidays program, with the parents coming to watch tomorrow, and I had to tell you what a pleasure it has been to use your Christmas-Toy Story. The students love it, I love it, the faculty love it, it's been awesome. The scripts are funny and entertaining, and the songs are in your head constantly [in a very good way]. Today's dress rehearsal has been perfect, and I can't wait for the grand unveiling tomorrow. Thank you for giving us a great show, full of color, charm and sheer entertainment. Happy Holidays."
by Leonard Lee

A Masterpiece
"‘A Christmas Toy Story’ was performed by our lower juniors and really was exceedingly good. It was entertaining, enthralling, at times very moving, but above all, very funny! The laughter from the audience was occasionally overwhelming, which is always a great indication that a very special performance is underway. I would highly recommend this superb musical, which is full of the joy and spectacle of the festive season. So well done Learn2soar Music. Thank you for your tremendous effort in creating such a well polished masterpiece."
by S Robins Headteacher

Fun, fun, fun!
"I used a Christmas toy story with my class of 7-8 year olds. I'll admit that I probably made things tougher for myself by using one of the harder scripts rather than the simple script (but it looked so good that I couldn't resist it), so at times I was getting a bit exasperated, but in the end I needn't have worried. The children learnt it and performed it so well. And we had so much fun with all the songs with silly dances and inflatable electric guitars for Jingle Bell Rock (which was probably the children's favourite song). I loved the Footprints song. So moving. In the end the parents were in raptures and my headteacher said it was one of the best Christmas performances she had seen in thirty years of teaching. So thank you Learn2soar for helping to make our Christmas assembly such a fun-filled festive success."
by S Harris

10 Out Of 10
"We were thrilled by our production of ‘A Christmas Toy Story’. It is indeed a very clever script where the toys that Santa brings come to life and learn about Christmas. The pupil's performances were simply amazing! We ambitiously decided to use the advanced script (with a few tweaks), so there was a great deal to learn, but nevertheless, the songs were sung beautifully, the script was delivered with excellent comic timing and dances were performed with gusto. This was due in large part due to the high quality script and songs and the fact that the children enjoyed it so much. The audience were wowed and we as staff know that this is one of the best Christmas musicals we've ever staged. 10 out of 10."
by M Mullin

Absolutely Fantastic
"We used the Christmas Toy Story musical with our infant department and it was absolutely fantastic. We changed a few of the songs as per the included suggestions and it worked brilliantly. A real treat for staff, parents and children. We particularly loved the humour and the fact that it was so easy to learn and stage. Keep up the good work."
