2023 Holiday Shipping Information

Please Order Early!

When is Christmas this year and when is the last safe day to order toys for Christmas delivery?

Christmas 2023 is on a Monday, so the last safe day to order from us would be Saturday, December 16th, with the last day for USPS delivery being Saturday Dec 23rd

Here is the US Postal Service's guidance for Christmas 2023 shipping and delivery: 

  • USPS Ground Advantage™: Ship by Saturday, December 16, 
  • First-Class® Mail: Saturday, December 16, 2023
  • Priority Mail: Monday, December 18, 2023

  • And, we can not 'Guarantee' Timely delivery... we can only promise you that we will give it to the Postal Service or UPS on the next mailing day.

    We cannot control what they do with your box. 

    That is why we send you your tracking number emails!
    We will do everything we can to make it fit into Regular Mail or UPS 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 Ground )

     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. 
      • Our average package delivery is a week or less. 
    • 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 online 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
