Sandtopia is an online sandplay and play therapy business based in Melbourne, Australia. We distribute world wide!
At Sandtopia we offer a range of high quality miniature figurines, as well as fantastic starter kits! We are committed to providing our clients with high quality service and are regularly searching for new figurines to expand and update our range of symbols and products. If there are particular figurines or products you are looking for, or would like Sandtopia to stock, please email us.
The staff at Sandtopia are fellow sandplay and play therapy therapists so you can be assured we have tried and tested all products to ensure their effectiveness before we sell them in the catalogue. If you have specific questions related to the products, meanings, or general sandplay technique please email Margaret. Margaret is a qualified sandplay therapist and the chief buyer of all stock at Sandtopia.

Orders are generally shipped within five working days of payment. The items within the online shop are updated as regularly as possible, however occasionally some items may be out of stock or on backorder. If this should occur with your order, we will let you know the estimate date the item is due to arrive or offer a refund or exchange for the item. We do not place items on backorder unless the item is contained within one of our kits.

Sandtopia sells its products world wide (wooden sandtrays are for Australian customers only). Postage and shipping rates are provided by Australia Post’s online calculator. International customers please note that shipping rates in Australia are quite high. Therefore your shipping fee is likely to be higher than you may expect. Wherever possible we use environmentally friendly recycled packaging.

A full exchange or refund will apply, however postage will be at your expense. Please note, all items must return to Sandtopia in their original condition and packaging (if applicable) for a refund to apply.
If an item arrives to you damaged, please email us as we may arrange to have the item returned to us. We use Australia Post for all returns. A new item will be sent to you or a refund can be issued.
Our starter and category kits contain figurines that have been carefully selected and as such, individual items within a kit cannot be returned for exchange unless damaged. The entire kit can be returned (in original condition and at your expense) if is not suitable for your needs.
