This pelican is fab, lovely soft material and a great character. The way the beak holds the fish is so cleverly thought out - everyone needs one of these guys!

This is my fourth pal from Andrea, bought as a gift for my husband who always sees a crow or raven flying when we're in Scotland on holiday and thinks it's an Eagle! This crow has bags of character and with his coloured personalised t-shirt he's going to remind my Husband of his bird identity failings all year round! Andrea was also really helpful in the postage of this one so i'm really grateful and honestly can't recommend these toys enough, the characters are amazing and you can't just stop at one!

About

Plushies and Cuddly Animals for Everyone

Read the interview at the Etsy blog here: https://blog.etsy.com/en/2015/featured-shop-andrea-vida/

"When buying from an artist/maker, you're buying more than just an object/painting. You are buying hundreds of hours of failures and experimentation. You are buying days, weeks & month of frustration and moment of PURE JOY.

You aren't just buying a thing, you're buying a piece of heart, part of a soul, a moment of someone's life. Most importantly, you're buying the artist more time to do something they are passionate about."

Sewing is my passion since I was a child, and making dolls when my children were babies - it was 20 years ago. They do not play with my dolls anymore, but the passion of dollmaking is still alive in me.
Most of my creatures are made of high quality plush and wellsoft fabrics. Sometimes I use recycled materials which are thoroughly selected and carefully cleaned and prepared by me. I prefer natural threads, canvases, linen and wool. I always use high quality polyfill to stuff my dolls.
My dolls are always carefully sewn - most of them are safe for children, even if they are not only for babies. If I use small pieces which are unavailable for toddlers, it is always referenced in the item's description.
I like to dress up my creatures - you can find lots of cute clothes for them in the shop. The creatures which can be dressed up are more or less the same size, so they can wear each other's dresses. The clothes are available together with any creatures or separetely, too.
Please feel free to browse through my shop and find your favorites!

Shipping
NEW SHIPPING POLICY - Please convo me if you have any questions!

I use two delivery providers - DHL or Hungarian Post.

I use Hungarian Post (in partnership with local postal providers for the adressee's home countries) for most European parcels. These parcels are delivered in 2-4 working days. I always send the parcels tracked - online tracking service will be provided by the local provider for the addressee's home country.
I can also deliver European parcels using DHL service but their price is higher. Please convo me if you prefer DHL service!

I use DHL for most US and Canada parcels. These parcels are usually delivered in 3-5 days and always tracked. Please provide me the adressee's (mobile) phone number so DHL will send a message prior to the delivery!
Some parcels are bigger than DHL's volume limits and sadly delivery cost would be very expensive for these ones. I dispatch these parcels using Hungarian Post's service and they will be delivered by USPS.

DHL service is very expensive for the parcels to be sent to Australia, South or Middle America or Asia. I can send parcels to these continents using Hungarian Post's service. If you would prefer DHL then please convo me and we can discuss the shipping cost options.

READY TO SHIP ITEMS: I ship them in 5-8 business days of finished purchase.

CUSTOM ORDER: please allow me 20-30 working days after received payment to make and ship your order. I always send a mail, when your order is dispatched. If you want them for a specific deadline, convo me, and I will let you know how soon I can make and ship.

Please write me your shipping adress if it doesn't match with your address available on Etsy! It's important, otherwise I will ship to your Etsy address! Thank you!

I do not take the responsibilities for customs fees.
