World traveler creates whimsical traveling companions.
Why can't an item you use everyday be not only functional, but add a little joy and imagination to your life every time you see it?
When I go to museums, I see the most beautiful creations! My favorite is an ancient cooking skillet whose handle is the head of a ram, because... why not?! Somehow along the way, people have sacrificed everyday art and imagination for a sort of sleek and uniform look. And that's fine for some people, but not for me. I see no reason why we can't have functional things that are also pretty awesome to look at.

Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
If a payment is declined I will alert you so you can arrange for an alternate payment method. If, after a reasonable time, there is no accepted payment then the transaction will be cancelled and items will be made available for sale again.
I will always ship orders as soon as possible after the payment has been received.
Orders received on Monday through Thursday will be shipped within 48 hours.
Orders received on Friday through Sunday will usually be shipped on Monday.
As The Traveling Monster Shop is based in Wisconsin, when you are ordering during the winter months try to allow a few extra days for shipping. Blizzards tend to delay the mail. :)
Additional policies and FAQs
To clean your furry monster bag:
Hand wash gently with cold water and mild soap.
Gently press out excess water (especially from the limbs), pull lining to outside, and hang to dry.
Combing should be done very gently and only when fur is dry.
Also, please note that the fur will mat over time. By combing frequently it will slow down the process. Just remember that monster's don't regrow their fur.
