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!

Payment
Now I can accept Etsy Direct Checkout as well, so you needn't a PayPal account to order!
If you have any special requirements, please contact me before ordering. Once an item is paid for you have 24 hours to cancel the sale.
Shipping
I always send hte packages using Hungarian Post's priority mail service. They pick up my packages always on Thursday.

To avoid complaints I will send all my parcels registered and tracked. The extra fee for tracking is included in all item's shipping fee.

Unfortunately USPS stopped their online tracking service for packages sent from Hungary so they don't provide any information on the delivery process anymore. Delivery to the USA normally needs 14-18 days. If the package doesn't arrive to you in two weeks then please contact your local post office first and ask for the tracking code - hopefully they can find the package.

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 its 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.

Just for information, not guaranteed - Based on my experiences, delivery needs (after despatchment):
- within Europe 1-2 weeks (but sometimes three business days)
- to Southeastern Asia 8-10 business days
- to the USA and Canada 2-3 weeks (but sometimes 8 business days)
- to Australia 2-3 weeks (but sometimes 8 business days)

In some uncommon cases it happens that delivery needs 30 days - based on my feedbacks it looks to be due to customs processes.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you are unhappy with your order for any reason please contact me within 14 working days of receiving your package. I will do my best to resolve the problem quickly.
If you would like to cancel your order after the receiption of the ordered item then you can cancel it within 14 days. In this case please send the clean and undamaged item back to me on your own expense, and I will refund your payment (incuding the original shipping fee) to you within 14 days.
