    Hi guys, was wondering if anyone here has used the website agesthreeandup.com before and if anyone can give me any idea what they're like?

    If this isn't in the correct place a mod can move it to wherever's suitable, thanks.

    I've ordered from them. No problems here. It sucks that they had the Takara FE Prime figures in stock last weekend and I regret not jumping the gun with them. Especially with their $9.99 shipping price...

    I think they changed ownership at some point?

    I ordered a takara cliffjumper from them, shipping was 39.99 to Ireland. I paid in full to secure myself one as they said it was on pre-order, sent them an e-mail two days ago to when they expect my order to be in and ship, no reply yet.

    Takara pre-orders for F/E Cliffjumper are back up on BBTS for my fellow fans looking for him.

    I ordered a couple sets of Prime stacks from them and they were great - this was back in 05 though...

    Yeah they changed ownership a few years ago. Fortunately. Look in the feedback section for feedback on the old owner...

    I've worked with them a few times and they've been very helpful and friendly. I, too, ordered a Takara Prime First Edition Cliffjumper from them and, apparently, it was in time to be confirmed among their last shipments before the line was cancelled. Now it's just a waiting game, I guess.

    I've purchased from them several times the last couple of years.

    The negativity towards agesthreeandup is on the old ownership back in 2008.

    The new ownership is cool and they package very well - strong box, item wrapped in bubble sheet, etc.

    The flat rate shipping is good but since they are based in British Columbia, Canada, they charge BC's HST tax of 12%.

    Normally they reply within a day or two.

    If you want an immediate response try calling their physical store. The phone number is listed here -> Ages Three and Up — Retail Store Location & Hours.

    Boris is the owner. From my experience, he's very helpful and customer oriented.
