Be sure to check your junk / spam/ trash folder for our emails.  Alternatively you can add us to your safe senders list.  

Please get in contact if you haven't recieved confirmations or drafts for your order, you may have typed your email address incorrectly, so we can amend that for you.

Where is my Draft?

Your embroidery design should be with you in 1-3 business days, it can be longer in peak times.

Certain email servers have very high spam filters, so you may find that your email draft is in your junk /spam/ trash folder.  

Some email servers are very suspicious of attachments and put them in there for safekeeping.  If you haven't actioned the email, you may find that your email server has automatically deleted it.  This is specific to hotmail &gmail and other web based servers. 

If your draft hasn't arrived within 2 business days, let us know and we'll resend it for you

Can I send to hospitals, PO Boxes, work places etc?

We use Australia Post to send our personalised Teddies, bunnies and plushies, so you can post to any address, including Parcel Locker, home, business, hospital, PO Box

With delivery to hospitals, allow a little extra time for the hospital to process the parcel internally.

Allow for the fact the Australia Post don't deliver on weekends.

Can I send a My Teddy bear overseas?

Absolutely, we send our teddy bears to a lot of countries around the world.

Please check the drop down box to see if the country you would like to send to is there.

Please note since Brexit we no longer can send to the UK as they have imposed a 20% VAT on the entire price whuch must be collected and paid for in advance of sending orpaid by the reciepient.

Similarly the European Union (EU) have imposed the same at 21% since July 1 2021 so we will no longer send to the EU.

Delivery times around the world will vary, so please allow between 2 - 8 weeks for delivery depending on the destination. This will change over time as free trade agreements are established, stay tuned.

New Zealand Approximate Postage Times.

Auckland is generally around 4 business days from dispatch and depending on how remote, allow for about a week to 10 days to other NZ destinations. Aus Post advise officially to allow up to 12 business days from sending, and can be longer in busy times.

Postal charges to NZ are the same as sending within Aus, ie A$9.90 for first item, $5 for subsequent items, and is trackable.

International Couriers

If you need to arrive really quickly there are options like Air Mail Express Post, Fedex and TNT. They can be pricey, we encourage you to get a quote and arrange this type of service, we're happy for them to collect from us.  We don't work with couriers or get quotes, but if you would like to arrange that, we are happy to have them collect from us.  Please contact us to discuss.

Finally, we are obliged to advise that there are NO export restrictions on sending overseas, as confirmed with the Australian Customs Service.

Some countries charge duty on incoming goods over a certain amount (eg in Australia this is $1000). We do mark our parcels as gifts for customs purposes.  They shouldn't incur any customs charges, but we cannot absolutely promise as is out of our control.
