Some customer reviews were:

Fast delivery from states to Western Australia. Extremely happy with all my purchases. Will return often.

Loved that I could find a unique gift for my " unique" kid!

"Absolutely horrible customer least, that would be my take if I actually received customer service! They don't live up to the terms on their website as to when items ship. They don't answer their emails. And, even when they claim they've shipped, by sending out a shipment notice, 36 hours later UPS does not have the package in their possession. Utterly and completely the WORST online shopping experience I've had in the modern e-commerce era!"

"I ordered before 1:00pm and paid for overnight shipping. After two days I got an email that said they were just shipping and that the package would not arrive until several days later. Then I was told that any order includes two days for processing.
Seems overnight shipping is NEVER available, even though they will charge you for it.
Customer service was horrendous
Will never shop ThInk Geek again."
