Parents, child-minders and teachers have generally reviewed Baker Ross quite positively for offering a wide selection of art supplies for kids at competitive prices. Satisfied customers were particularly impressed with the fact that they could bulk buy and receive prompt next day delivery at affordable prices compared to larger high street arts and stationery retailers.
On the downside, a few customers have remarked that they have experienced order mix-ups and damaged items upon delivery. This has been made worse by a overly complicated returns process, however people did comment that the customer service staff were generally helpful and quick to respond to their queries or complaints.
Baker Ross’ suggested party plans and arts and crafts instructions have also been popular with carers or parents stuck for creative ideas or activities for kids. Customers have expressed relief at the free children’s craft ideas on the website which they have said has taken the pressure off finding fun and educational pastimes for children.
