Shop policies

Last updated on May 19, 2022
All the plushe animals in my shop are designed by myself and lovingly assembled by hand. For most of these cuddly toys, I will not make the same thing twice, so that each individual remains unique. I do use certain partons again, but often with different fabrics, colors or markings.

My goal is to make cuddly and teddy animals that look a lot like their living peers, but that still retain the cuteness of a cuddly toy. I love almost all mammals and really enjoy trying out different species, so I hope that in the future this store will be full of a wide variety of animals, something for everyone!

I also make cuddly toys on request, so if you have a specific color, animal species or anything else in mind that is not currently in my store, you can always send an email to avanii.creations AT gmail.com to see what the possibilities are.

Cancellations: not accepted

Please contact the seller if you have any problems with your order.


It is advisable to first read the listing of the item in question carefully before your purchase. For large amounts (€ 100 or more) payment can be split into two parts. Please contact me.


Each item is sent in a sturdy cardboard box, filled with protective paper or plastic. These materials have been reused from previous shipments. I send every item after receipt of payment within 1 to 3 working days via PostNL parcel service. I always choose shipping with track & trace option (in the case of Dutch customers, the item may also be picked up if possible to avoid shipping costs. Please send a message about this). Shipping takes about one to two weeks, depending on the destination and a final stop at the duane. I ship worldwide.

Additional policies and FAQs

Would you like to have a cuddly toy from a certain animal or would you rather have an existing cuddly toy in a different color? That's possible! I also accept assignments for cuddly toys, both the teddy and the 'normal' variant. The price will have to be treated separately per request. The price is mainly determined on the basis of size, measured from nose to butt. A general guideline for this is €7 per cm. For more information, please contact me at avanii.creations [!at] gmail.com or simply through Etsy.

I do have pets, namely rats. They are not allowed to get the stuffed animals or the fabrics, but since I live and work in a one-room apartment, complete isolation is not possible. If you suffer from allergies to pets or pollen, please let me know so that I can take it into account (pollen due to any outdoor photos).


Privacy policy (currently only)

This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through Etsy.com or its related sites and services.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy.

Information I Collect

To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you're ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order or a gift, for example), if you contact me directly.

Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It

I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

Data Retention

I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 4 years.

Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU

I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.

Your Rights

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:

Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.

How to Contact Me

For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Avanii, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at avanii.creations [!at] gmail.com
