Our mission is to connect you with those you love in unique and fabulous ways. We feel that the best bits in life are the happy moments shared with special people. Whatever the occasion, it feels great to give someone a hug or a high five.
But sometimes it’s not possible to be there to hug them directly, and that’s where we step in. We take your kisses and cuddles, hugs and back slaps, high fives and fist bumps, laughs and jokes, and turn them into a delicious gift to be delivered straight through their letterbox. We make little gestures with a big impact.
Our goal is to enable you to send surprises through the letterbox of your special people, surprises that will keep them smiling all day.
Who We Are
At Morse Toad, every one of us loves what we do. We put our heart and soul into every gift, safe in the knowledge that each one is going to deliver a big dose of happy to a recipient somewhere across the country. We love nothing more than looking through our lovely reviews as it gives us a real sense of the impact we are having. If you're reading this...definitely review us. It really makes us happy ....or helps us improve.
It can get busy in the office. Then again, we all have young families, so busy is relative. After all, the chocolate doesn't answer back. We are always amazed by how much love there is in the world. During Covid, we experienced a wave of orders that can only be described as uplifting. When the chips are down, the human race has an enormous capacity for love and kindness. We saw this through every single order that came through the door. It was reassuring for every one of us. Chocolate is a great medium to put a smile on someone's face.
If we can ever be of service to you, or if you have questions, do get in touch using the forms or our phone number. Someone will get back to you as soon as they can during working hours.
How It All Began
Many moons ago, Mr Toad (Dicky in the real world) set off on a charity bike ride from Cairo to Cape Town. It took him and his team five and a half months of pedalling to reach their destination. They cycled through deserts, tropical forests and savannahs saturated with every man-eating beast you can imagine, an experience the average Englander is woefully unprepared to deal with. At the end of the trip, they arrived in South Africa, exhausted but triumphant, having raised almost £10,000 for charity.
Shortly after completing the trip, a package was delivered to him. This package contained a few useful items, but there, hidden underneath it all, was a chocolate bar. It transpired that his Mum had sent the package 4 months earlier, but it had missed him at the first checkpoint. It had duly been shipped from country to country in hot (literally) pursuit of the avid cyclists. Saharan sun and tropical heat had not been kind to the chocolate, and by this point it looked a shadow of its former self. But at that moment, Dicky recognised it for what it really was….a gesture of support from mother to son. Via the medium of chocolate, his Mum was saying ‘good luck, you can do it’.
Even in its miserable state, this chocolate packed a massive punch, and this got him thinking. Sometimes it’s those little gestures that make all the difference. In a world of relentless digital messages, a proper gesture, an actual physical thing, can go a long way to making a big impact on someone’s day, or even someone’s life.
And so Morse Toad was born. A messaging service dedicated to making little gestures with a big impact.
What We Stand For
We believe that the best gifts are the ones that you make yourself. That’s why our products can always be customised so you can add your own personal touch.
We believe a great gift is a surprise that arrives through the letterbox, not one that requires collecting from the Post Office. That’s why our boxes are letterbox friendly.
A picture can paint a thousand words. Photos are a snapshot in time, a memory that can be treasured forever. That’s why it’s possible to add a photograph to a number of our gifts.
Bag Yourself A Morsey
Not everyone sends gifts. Only really really nice people do.
If you’re the kind of person who likes to make other people happy, then we think you’re amazing and you deserve some recognition. After all, you deserve treats too.
If you join our Rewards Club, you can earn good Karma Coupons with every order. These can be exchanged for special offers and free gifts. And if you become a VIT, that means you’ll get your very own Morsey.
Morsey's mission is to spread smiles wherever he goes. He loves hugs and cuddles, and he loves to go on trips. You can take him with you and, if you like, post a pic of him on instagram with any of the hashtags #morsey #wheresmorsey #morseyandme.
Only the nicest of nice people will ever own a Morsey.
