2020 Holiday Shipping Information

Year round, we have one Flat Rate for Shipping: $8.95, One Doll or Fifty.
That said, Here's what you should know
about our Holiday Shipping this year:
(Please note we are NOT passing on the new USPS Holiday Shipping Surcharge to you, our customers.)

Christmas Eve this year - 2020 - is Thursday the 24th
and the last day for US mail or UPS package delivery.
The last safe day to order will be 
Thursday December 17th. 
Thursday's orders will ship on Friday the 18th and should arrive on or by Christmas Eve.
The Pattycake Doll Company's Promise:
"That we will ship the next business day" 
That promise is still good. 
The US Postal Service delivery schedule is not. 
UPS has not been the best the last few Christmas' Either. 
As you know, online shopping exploded this year, and already all three major services (USPS, UPS, FedEx) have had troubles handling the load.
Our advice is to order as early as you can. Period. 
      
   

We do not 'Guarantee' Timely delivery... we can only tell you that we will give it to the Postal Service or UPS on time.

We cannot control what they do with your box. 

That is why we send you your tracking number SMS / emails!


IF YOUR ORDER IS TOO LARGE TO FIT INTO A PRIORITY MAIL BOX or UPS 3 Day, IT HAS TO GO RETAIL GROUND, THAT'S 3-8 DAYS!
We will do everything we can
to make it fit into Priority Mail boxes, 
***including removing dolls from their original boxes
to save space so we can use
Priority until the last moment.***
(Most Cloth Dolls - under a pound - go 1st Class Mail)

 If we still can't make it fit,
we will cancel your order and void your payment.

We'd rather give up the sale than disappoint a child for Christmas!
    • ​All orders are shipped within one business day. Order on Monday and it ships on Tuesday, etc.
    • 'Porch theft' is a growing problem. Please have your packages delivered to a 'safe' location.
    • Remember to add a day if your Mail Carrier or UPS usually leaves you a notice, leaves packages at a 'front desk' or 'management office,' 'package locker'
    • or if you are shipping to a PO Box. (No UPS)
    • Please, make sure you give us the right address. We access the US Postal Service address database. If we can't find a match, we can't ship your package. 
    • The email will contain a your delivery confirmation number, and a link to the USPS or UPS tracking so that you can follow your package's progress. 
    • Up until December our average package delivery is a week or less. As needed we ship by either First Class, Retail Ground 3 Day UPS or Priority Mail.
  • Once we give your package to the Post Office or UPS, it is in their hands. All shipping times, costs and delivery tracking information is based on what they tell us. 
Addie and I have been selling dolls since 2002, and every Christmas there are a few folks who are going to be disappointed about our shipping. Thousands of you will be just fine, but we really wish that every single one of you could get the dolls you want when you want them. We're a small family owned business, and we do our best for you and the children. We appreciate your interest and wish you and your's a wonderful holiday season. 

All our love, and God Bless... Addie and Peter Laudin
