Shipping Policies

Current Shipping Policies

We are currently shipping in stock inventory within 2 - 7 business days! Friend Requests and other Made-to-Order toys will be shipped in the time frame shown on the listing.

-I usually try to make at least 2 trips a week to our post office to drop off shipping. Our preferred shipping days are Monday and Friday. Sometimes issues come up and shipping times get disrupted, which is why we say 2 to 7 business days. Holidays can also interrupt this schedule.

-Shipping labels are created within 1 - 2 days of a package actually being shipped out. We do not create labels then hold the boxes for a week. If we've printed a label it will be on the box and in the mail within 2 days at the latest.

-Some customers notice that their tracking numbers show a "pre-shipment" status for longer than 2 days. USPS has been experiencing a LOT of delays and obstacles related to the COVID pandemic and other issues that have come up since 2020. A lot of times the boxes we drop off miss their entry tracking scan, which means the tracking information for the box isn't updated as it travels. This is not something we have any control over, unfortunately. Some customers report a tracking status of "pre-shipment" all the way up until the day it shows "out for delivery". It's kind of a mess, but it's what we have to deal with right now. Please understand that once we drop off a box for delivery there is nothing we can do to control the tracking or course of the delivery.

-All orders are wrapped in tissue paper and mailed in plain brown boxes. The return address lists our company as "SB Creative LLC" on the shipping label. We list our toys as "rubber toy" on any customs forms for international orders. We will NOT alter prices on customs forms or ship items as a gift to avoid paying customs fees, so please do not ask us to.

-If you believe your package is lost or was damaged in transit, you will need to contact the USPS to file a claim for compensation. If you are an international customer with a Priority Mail shipment that is more than 3 weeks from the date of shipment without an update please contact us and we will open a claim for you. Packages shipped with UPS will need to file a claim with them for any damages.

-If you order was returned to us as undeliverable we will reach out with the contact email on the order. You will have the option of a refund for the items, minus shipping cost, or you can pay for your box to be reshipped. If you do not respond within the time period specified within our contact attempt your order will be automatically refunded. Toys that are returned in this way that we can confirm haven't been removed from the box by any other party will be returned to our shop's inventory to be sold as normal. If a box is tampered with in any way or we suspect any damage, those items will NOT be resold.

-WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO REFUSE ORDERS BEING SHIPPED TO RE-SHIPMENT FACILITIES! There are countries we choose not to do business with. If we suspect you are trying to circumvent our policies using a re-shipment facility your order may be cancelled and refunded.

-We will not change the name or address on your order once the order has been placed. The only exceptions to this are for honest mistakes (such as an older address being auto filled at check out). We've been seeing folks buying items for other people in their own names and then contacting us to change the name and address to the other person's. This gets to be a lot of work and it opens up a lot of opportunities for mistakes. As well, it can be used to circumvent certain store policies, such as age restrictions. Please make sure to double check your names and addresses before you check out!

International Shipping Update


International orders are taking even longer than usual due to the pandemic. Those orders have to go through two over-burdened postal systems to reach their destination, and delays are happening all over the world. There is nothing I can do to speed those boxes along! If your package was sent by USPS first class international postage you should know that once those boxes leave the US we do NOT get tracking updates on them until they are delivered. I’ve been told by USPS that those aren’t really tracking numbers, more like reference numbers.

If you have a first class international package and you see it stopped at a Chicago or New York sorting facility for a long time, that’s pretty typical right now. Those are often the last stop for most international postage leaving the country. Chicago is particularly slow lately, and I've seen boxes stay there for over a month before moving again. I've been told by USPS that there's nothing I can do to get those boxes moving, we just have to wait. We usually don’t get tracking updates after that until it’s marked delivered. You will need to contact your local post with the tracking number you were provided for any updates. I can only see the same tracking info you can see on the USPS site. I have no information on additional customs or postal delays outside of the US.

Additionally, USPS Priority International has been incredibly slow lately. None of the shipping estimates provided by USPS at check out have been accurate lately and all international customers should expect delays. We are looking into different carriers, but at the moment we only have USPS to work with.

We have added DHL as a carrier for overseas orders. Please be advised that it is still very much ship at your own risk! DHL has been pretty fast for us, but it is important to include a phone number on your order if you're using DHL as they will use that information to contact you once your box arrives in your country. As well, please use a full first and last name, no initials, when you ship with DHL. This will help your box avoid getting stopped in transit to confirm your identity. Any boxes sent back to us will be reshipped if the buyer requests, but it will be at your expense.

We have no control over any taxes/duties/customs fees charged by any country or carrier outside of the US. Here in the United States we do not have such fees on our packages, so I'm very unknoledgeable about how to navigate that system within other countries.

WE ARE NO LONGER SHIPPING TO GERMANY! Unfortunately, we have will not be shipping to Germany for the foreseeable future due to the German Packaging Act. We are not compliant with the new act and are not currently aiming to sign up due to the time and cost it would impose on our small business. I am very sorry for the inconvenience.

Combined Orders

I'm very sorry to say that we are no longer offering to combine domestic orders. I know drop shopping can be a pain and result in multiple orders placed back to back and I'm sorry that it's so stressful. Shopify does not have any systems for combining orders, so all order combinations we did in the past were done manually and took a lot of time and effort. As we have grown it's become clear that I just don't have the time and energy to spend combining orders like this anymore. I apologize for the disappointment and inconvenience.

We do still offer to combine international orders upon request! There are some rules for this, so please read on if you are an international customer hoping to have 2 separate orders combined and shipped together.

-This is a courtesy that we offer to help customers. It takes a lot of time and effort on our part to combine these orders because they have to be done manually and tracking numbers and shipping refunds have to be sent out one order at a time. If it becomes too much work or people start abusing the system, we will cease to offer this option. We also reserve the right to deny a request to combine orders for any reason.

-Orders needing to be combined must be unshipped/unfulfilled at the time of the request. If you place an order on Saturday and another on Tuesday and want them combined, it is unlikely that we'll be able to do that since we ship weekend orders on Monday.

-If you want orders to be combined you MUST SEND A REQUEST BY EMAIL! We do not see requests in notes on orders or through Twitter. If you want orders to be considered you will need to send an email to with your name and the order numbers of the orders you want shipped together. WE WILL NOT AUTOMATICALLY COMBINE ORDERS! There are usually a couple hundred orders that come in on a drop weekend and we don't always notice the same person ordering more than one order until after postage has been paid for.

-Combining orders does not always result in a refund of shipping costs. You will be contacted if your combined order shipping exceeds the shipping cost you paid for your orders and offered options for how to pay for additional postage. Very often a full or partial shipping refund can be expected and will be sent once postage has been bought for the order on shipping day.

-We will only combine orders that have the same name and shipping address on them! If you and another person want your orders combined they need to have the same name and same address on them. Because I have to combine orders manually having to figure out who the box goes to and where to send shipping refunds gets confusing. This new rule is aimed to help reduce my stress as well as minimize mistakes on my end.
