Announcement   Hey all - Happy Summer to everybody!

I wish I had some HAPPY news to report but lets address the elephant in the room. As of JULY 1st - ETSY raised their seller fees a "tad". This is ok with me as they have stayed fairly low for a number of years. The problem I (as well as a lot of other shop owners are having) is they are now taking a percentage of the S&H fees that shops charge customers. I make no bones about it - I charge a handling fee on my orders. This is to cover NEW boxes, packing material as well as other sundry items the cost my business money. Anybody that has ever ordered from us knows, we pack a mean box and get them out in great time! So, with that said - I am going try to keep the shipping fees down but you may notice a slight increase here or there. I'm sorry I have to do this but as they say - its the cost of doing business!

Also - We have been super busy in the shop this summer (if your in Portland Drop by!) and haven't had much time to devote to our store front here. But look for lot of new stuff coming to the store in the near future , probably late summer in time for fall shopping! I have a great selection of items set aside that need to be processed (pics, descriptions etc.) before they are live for you to purchase!

If you're not already following us over on FB, Twitter or (especially) Instagram, we post lots of cool interesting looking items and other stuff for sale (other than whats here on Etsy of course). We also run special promo's (coupons, etc) that you can use on here but you have to get the information from over there....hint hint. Links to both can be found on our shop information page. User name is same as here: Drtonguestoys.

And please "Favorite" the shop here on Etsy and when we list and update anything in the store, you will receive a notification!

Cheerio!

Best,

Mark

About

Dealing in toys since I was a wee lad!

That is no joke - other kids had lemonade stands? I had a toy stand - well more like two saw horses and a board. I sold toys out of my garage to the neighborhood kids so I could go out and buy MORE TOYS! Fun stuff has always been a part of my life - even through High School, I visited the toy isle every chance I could get.

After running a mail order collectibles business on the side for a few years, spring forward to 1993 - I opened my first collectible toy store in Portland Oregon - Dr. Tongues 3-D House of Collectible Toys. That first shop closed in 2005 but my love of toys did not wain. I was still doing mail order through my own website and then opened up an Etsy shop in 2009.

We have reopened another retail location in Portland Oregon May 0f 2015. Dr. Tongue's "I Had That" Shoppe is here in Portland Oregon to fill your collecting needs! So if you’re in the area drop by and see what we have besides the items listed here!

Look for shop updates regularly on Facebook or on Instagram. The name? Drtonguestoys of course!

Returns and exchange details
All items are sold "as-is". Due to the nature of the collectibles business: There are no refunds, returns or exchanges - so please shop carefully. We try our best to describe every item to the best of our ability (and we have been doing this for a long time)!!! Please ask all pertinent questions prior to your purchasing the item (s). Insurance is an option when the item is purchased - if you have doubts about your mail persons package handling ability, please let us know you want to insure the package.
Payment
Dr. Tongues Toys accepts direct check out payments so no matter how you want to pay, we are ready!. If you live in the Portland Area you may pick up your item locally - cash is always nice!!! We have a store front located at 7129 NE Fremont St. in NE section of Portland. Please make payments for items ordered off of the store front as soon as possible. We will wait one week and if payment is not made OR we have not heard from you we will re-list the item and file a fee reimbursement from Etsy.
Shipping
We are set up for and use USPS Priority & First Class Shipping exclusively. Foreign (out of the country) orders - we try to use First Class International mail. If not possible due to the size or weight of the item we will use Priority Mail International. If there is a larger item that needs to be shipped with in the US, we will use Fed- Ex ground service. Please be aware we do add a "Handling" fee to our shipping charges (that would be the H in S&H). This is not an extraneous fee and merely covers our time, packing materials and GAS (traveling to the P.O.) that goes into each package we send out.
