• These galaxy bat plushies are made overseas with the assistance of Plush Me, a company that specializes with connecting small businesses and artists to overseas manufacturers. This small batch production allows me to keep up with demand as my business grows. They do not use factories which support child labor or forced labor, nor do they use factories with unsafe working conditions. Each plush is handmade from my own pattern designs using custom printing for the galaxy patterns. They are CE certified and made from all new materials.
• This is a handmade product is meant for display and light handling, please treat it well to avoid damage
• Plushies contain small parts and are not meant for children
• My home is a smoke free, pet friendly home. It contains cats, dogs, and birds
• Due to their handmade nature, no two plushies are quite the same. Expect slight variations
• Please read my policies before ordering
It was smaller than I expected but I don't even care, it's perfect. Got it as a gift for my friend who has a hyperfixation on bats and space and I know they're gonna love it. Really good quality, super cute.
i love love love this plush! BUT PLEASEEEEEE make it available for shipping to germany!!!
I'm glad you like the bat! I would love to ship to Germany (and other EU countries), but the laws regarding import and shipping are not possible for me to comply with.
Germany specifically has a packaging act referred to as VerpackG. This law would require me to register for the LUCID packaging registration and in order to do that, I'd need a packaging license. The license would require me to calculate my annual packaging quantities in kilograms and I'd have to pay per kilogram. There are no exceptions for small businesses.
And, the larger issue, is the Article 4 of Regulation (EU) 2019/1020 passed by the EU which requires all people who place 'toys' on the market to hire an economic operator in the EU, have technical documents drawn up of the toy that are kept for 10 years, have my products safety tasted, carry out conformity assessments, write up an EC declaration of conformity, attach a CE marking to all my products, display my contact information on the toy, and attach warnings and instructions to the toy where needed. Again, there is no exception for small businesses or, like in the case of my products, where I might only ever make 1 of some of them. Some people send their plushies to the EU marked as art pieces or adult collectible items, but plushies are specifically included in the law as a product for children, and the laws state any item that could even be potentially confused as a toy for children counts as a toy under the law regardless of how you classify it. They simply rely on the fact they send so few products, they are unlikely to be caught. If a business is caught not complying with the law they can have their products take and destroyed, be fined, being blocked at customs from sending anything, and more. So while some people are willing to take that risk, I personally am not since this is my full time business.
So I tend to recommend people who want to see my products available in their countries to speak up about laws being passed for their area and push for exceptions for small businesses who can't take on the same financial and time burden as large ones. (For example, there are exceptions under tax laws for small businesses who make under a certain $ amount). You can also find local people in your area who use my patterns and ask them to try and re-create the same products and sell them to you locally, avoiding all the issues of importing.
I wish I had a better answer than this! I had a lot of international customers in the past, but as things are now, it's just not do-able for me!
Exceptionally well made, came packaged beautifully and swift shipping. If you like cute plushie companions I highly recommend getting one or more of these plushie bats.
got it for my daughter for christmas. she loves it.
If you've been thinking about getting one, stop hesitating, and do it. They're soft, perfect sized, and will give you all the serotonin you could ask for.
