Announcement    ★★★ ORDERS ARE PROCESSING IN 2-4 BUSINESS DAYS - CLICK TO LEARN HOW TO RUSH YOUR ORDER - Visit us at TelsaBaby.com for more products, can't find something? It's probably at our site. ★★★

Purchase this listing to rush your order ahead of everyone else (we have 80-150 orders in our queue every day so this moves you ahead of everyone else). You must send us a message and a text ☎ (314) 225-5881 and let us know that you added this https://etsy.me/3uY2u4K

★★★ POSTAL DELAYS ★★★

There are postal delays that we have NO control over. We ship our packages on time. We do not guarantee delivery dates. If you need guaranteed delivery purchase Express service. Please know that we do not print our labels before the package is ready to ship. First-class packages can take up to 2-3 weeks to receive. The post office is not scanning many packages. If it says we printed the label, we have taken it to the post office.

★★★ SANITIZING AND PRECAUTIONARY MEASURES ★★★

When we pack your orders, we sanitize our hands and workspace with 91% isopropyl alcohol, it kills basically everything, we do this before packing EACH order. Everything is heat-sealed so if it encounters anything in transit you know it’s safe. You can wash the heat-sealed bags in some hot soapy water before opening them. And of course we always recommend washing your beads with hot soapy water when you get them.

Clips can be washed as well if you need to, but be sure to blow dry them to get all water off.

Cord is best sanitized with UV light (so put it in the sun for a day).

★★★ QUESTIONS? ★★★

Have a question or need some help? Text Danielle at ☎ (314) 225-5881. She will try to respond immediately from 0900-1700 CST M-F (text, do not call, as she is on Zoom meetings all day). If you find a lower price on your order somewhere else (order + shipping) for the same products (by the same manufacturer - we can tell) let us know and we'll try to match or beat it. We are not obligated to match prices.

★★★ LOWEST SHIPPING COST / SHIPPING REFUNDS ★★★

We have the lowest shipping costs you'll find, we charge exact shipping, it's free for orders over $50 (after discounts) in the US, use this code TBFREESHIP50 and we'll pay 50% of the shipping for international orders over $200 (after discounts).

Canada and foreign shipping is often calculated much higher on here but we will refund overages for ALL shipping (US and international) if it's $1 or more over what I paid. So if you pay $25 in shipping and it costs me $8 to mail it, I refund $17. Conversely, if shipping is more than Etsy lists I will invoice you for the additional shipping costs. If we forget to credit your shipping don't hesitate to remind us.

We offer free local pickup in St. Charles, MO by 94 and 1st Capitol during business hours (9-4) using a special code. If you use the code and you will not be picking your order up we will request payment for shipping before we ship your order.

If you have concerns, contact us with the list of items you want and we will create a custom order with exact shipping for you.

★★★ INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING AND CUSTOMS ★★★

We are NOT responsible for a package once it leaves the US. If we provide you with tracking and the item is stuck in customs we will not ship out a replacement as we cannot guarantee it won't also get stuck in customs. If your package is in customs please contact your local shipping authority and check on the status with them before contacting us. We will ask you for your case number so we can follow up on the item as well. Note that only one case can be opened per item. If we purchased insurance on the package we will open the case as we are the recipient of the insurance money (in order to allow us to replace your package).

You are 100% responsible for all customs, import, and duty fees. We are not responsible for any fees. If you do not pay the fees and your package is force returned to us we will only refund your purchase minus shipping once we receive the package.

★★★ INSURANCE ★★★

Our first-class packages are usually NOT mailed with insurance as that would be very cost-prohibitive. If you want insurance on your package it will ship priority and we will do that and will invoice you for the additional shipping and insurance. Cost is generally $8-20 for domestic US parcels and $25-48 for international parcels. You MUST contact us first to arrange for insured packages.

Note that we may insure certain packages based on value at our own cost (generally any package over $40).

★★★ REFUNDS / RETURNS ★★★

As we now heat seal pack all of our products we can accept returns on products still in their original packaging. You will be responsible for all return shipping costs. Once we receive the items and can confirm their status we will credit you for your purchase price minus a 20% restocking fee as it takes time for us to put the products back. Shipping will not be refunded.

Items that shipped with Free Shipping will be subject to both a shipping fee deduction and the 20% restocking fee.

★★★ If the item has been removed from our packaging we cannot accept the return. NO EXCEPTIONS. ★★★

Read all descriptions before purchasing and if you have a question please contact us.

It is very important to note that bracelets are made based on the size you choose. You must measure before submitting your order, we make what you tell us to. A $1 bill is 6" if you don't have a ruler handy.

Wood products are prone to cracking if they are not properly conditioned weekly and every time you wash them. We will not replace cracked wood products if you did not ask us to condition it and did not purchase t-balm.

If you are in the EU you agree to abide by our refund and return policy due to the nature of our products. You must notify us within 14 days of receipt to return the product.

About TeslaBaby

Sales 58,441
On Etsy since 2014

Parenting is simpler with Tesla Baby.

We are a disabled veteran and woman-owned business - shipping from the gateway to the Midwest in Missouri.

After having a child we realized that there were gaps in available safe products -- and some that we could improve on. That's how Tesla Baby was born. It was named after our son Niekola -- the original inspiration for everything we sell. We've since added a our daughter, Acadia, and our youngest addition, Malakai. In that process, our silicone bead and wood product lines keep expanding as we see new products we can offer in better quality or at better prices.

"We" is me, Danielle Favreau (jewelry designer, portrait artist, color creator, etc.) and my husband Erique Favreau (fine wood-worker extraordinaire, packer, shipper, and the person who keeps Tesla Baby going).

We design and manufacture our products at the highest quality level for your family; everything is handmade by us unless specified otherwise. We stand behind our products and if you ever have an issue with anything please let us know.

We donate approximately $5,000 worth of product annually to organizations around the world and 10% of our sales go to two military families in need annually.

We've been featured in the St. Louis Post Dispatch twice and in several online magazines and even on TV in Canada.

Frequently asked questions
Wood Conditioning and TBalm

We condition our wood with a mix of organic oil (jojoba, olive, or coconut) and beeswax that we call T-Balm. Our T-Balm has no gluten, casein, corn, soy, sugar, vinegar, GMO products, yeast, parabens, latex, preservatives, petroleum, coloring, or perfumes. It's just pure oil and beeswax. The beeswax has been boiled long enough to kill botulism -- however, it is still always a risk as are any items with beeswax or honey products.

If you are unsure, just ask for a non-conditioned ring and we'll send it bare then you can use plain coconut oil, olive oil, or jojoba oil to season it.

Our conditioner is completely safe to use as a lip balm, diaper balm, wood conditioner, skin conditioner, and more.

We do not condition our beads but you should.

Hole and Cord Specifications and Assembly Instructions

All of our beads have a 2-2.5 mm hole and work best with 2 mm cord. In order to fit the cord through properly hold a lighter flame to the end of the cut cord for about 1 second then roll it between your fingers to seal it and make it "hard" and no longer able to fray. This melts the fibers together. Then you can thread the cord through the beads or clasps. Once you are done and have your clasps on and you make a double knot, melt the knot a bit and roll it to firm it into a solid ball. That will prevent it from coming apart.

Go to our Facebook page for videos on how to assemble teethers, necklaces, and bracelets.

Shipping Refunds & International Shipping Prices

We have the lowest shipping costs you'll find, we charge exact shipping, it's free for orders $50+ (after discounts) in the US and we'll pay 50% of the shipping for international orders over $175 (after discounts).

Canada and foreign shipping is often calculated much higher but we will refund overages for ALL shipping (US and international) if it's $1 or more over what I paid. So if you pay $25 in shipping and it costs me $8 to mail it, I refund $17. Conversely, if shipping is more than we list we will invoice you for the additional shipping costs.

If we forget to credit your shipping don't hesitate to remind us.

If you have concerns, contact me with the list of items you want and I will create a custom order with exact shipping for

International Shipping and Customs

We are NOT responsible for a package once it leaves the US. If we provide you with tracking and if the item is stuck in customs we will not ship out a replacement as we cannot guarantee it won't also get stuck in customs. If your package is in customs please contact your local shipping authority and check on the status with them before contacting us. We will ask you for your case number so we can follow up on the item as well. Note that only one case can be opened per item. If we purchased insurance on the package we will open the case as we are the recipient of the insurance money (in order to allow us to replace your package).

You are 100% responsible for all customs, import, and duty fees. We are not responsible for any fees.

Shipping Insurance

Our first class packages are NOT mailed with insurance as that would be very cost prohibitive. If you want insurance on your package it will ship priority and we will do that and will invoice you for the additional shipping and insurance. Cost is generally $7-20 for domestic US parcels and $25-48 for international parcels. You MUST contact us first to arrange for insured packages.

Note that we may insure certain packages based on value at our own cost (generally any package over $100).

Returns and Refunds

As we now heat seal pack all of our products we can accept returns on products still in their original packaging. You will be responsible for all return shipping costs. Once we receive the items and can confirm their status we will credit you for your purchase price minus a 20% restocking fee. Shipping will not be refunded.

If you are in the EU you agree to abide by our refund and return policy due to the nature of our products.

Please read all descriptions before purchasing and if you have a question please contact us. If you need immediate assistance during business hours you can text us as at (636) 627-7627, we may not answer phone calls, text first.

Processing and Shipping

We try to process all orders within 2-4 business days (not counting the day you order or weekends or holidays). We ship most orders via first-class USPS, which usually takes between 3-5 days to get to domestic addresses or 7-21 days to international addresses. Any orders over 16 oz are shipped USPS priority. All wood products are shipped in boxes to prevent breakage. We insure packages at our discretion, but you can always request that we purchase insurance and we will invoice you separately for that.
