A little sneak peak of plushies in the making. A brown-and-white goat and a grey lynx will be up for sale soon! Glaukos the Beanie fox is inspecting the work :) He is for sale already.

Shop policies

Last updated on June 2, 2018
All plush animals in my shop have been lovingly designed and hand made by me. For this reason, most of these plushies will not be replicated, making each individual unique and one of a kind. I do reuse patterns, but always with different colours, fabrics or markings.

My aim is to create plush animals that resemble their living cousins, but still retain some plushie cuteness. :) I love virtually all mammal species and really like to try out new species to make. Hopefully, in the near future, this shop will be filled with a great variety of animals, so there will be a perfect plushie for everyone!

I also do custom orders, so if you have a specific species or colouration in mind which I do not have up for sale, you can always send me an email at avanii.creations AT gmail.com or a message on Etsy to ask about the possibilities. The starting price is generally €7 per cm, measured from nose to butt.

Accepted payment methods

Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
I don't accept returns, exchanges, or cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
Returns and exchange details
If you are not happy with your purchase and wish to return it, you can do so within 14 days after you received it. I will need proof that the parcel is indeed on its way back. I will refund the price of the item and the first shipping cost, but will not refund the return shipping cost. The track and trace service I standard provide with every shipment should avoid loss, because the parcel can be traced. I have never lost a package in the mail so far! Should this happen anyway, please contact me so we can sort things out. Please do remember that once a parcel is shipped, I have no further influence on it.
It is advised to carefully read the listing information of an item before purchase. For the bigger sums of money (€100 and up) a payment plan can be implemented. Please contact me if you would like this. Items are shipped when everything has been paid.
Every plushie is shipped in a sturdy cardboard box, with protective paper or plastic wrappings inside, which are all reused from previous shipments. I ship out the items 1 to 3 work days after the payment has been received. The parcels are shipped by PostNL with track and trace service, so you can follow the parcel online (I send you a code and a link).

Stickers, charms and patches are shipped with standard shipping in an envelope or bubble mailer. Unfortunately there is no tracking available for these.

Shipment generally takes between one to three weeks, depending on its destination and possible waiting time at the customs. I will ship worldwide. Please note that once a parcel has been accepted by the post office, I can no longer oversee and take responsibility for what happens underway. I do my best to ensure a safe and quick shipment!
Additional policies and FAQs

- Do you do custom orders?
Absolutely! Both for teddies and regular plush. The price will have to be determined on a case by case basis and is based mainly on size (starting from €7 per cm) and complexity of the desired animal. For more information you can contact me at avanii.creations AT gmail.com or via Etsy. They open periodically, since by now I get more requests than I can fulfill.

- Do you have pets?
I have small pets (rats) who live with me in my one room apartment. They are not allowed near plushies or fabrics, but we still share the room. You don't smell anything of course, but if you are highly allergic to animals, you may want to contact me before buying.

- Do you smoke?
No, the place where my items are made and stored is absolutely smoke-free.

One last thing, if you'd like a custom order and you are allergic to pollen/have hay fever, please let me know! Sometimes I like to take pictures of plushies outdoors, but I will not do it if you are allergic!


Privacy policy

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
