Announcement   Welcome to The Occasional Bat, where we have bats for every occasion!

Our bats are unique and custom made creations that reflect the mood of the holiday, event or any other occasion that you can think of. Whether for a birthday, anniversary, holiday or even as a "gag gift", our bats are sure to make someone smile. Cute and cuddly despite the fact that they are bats, our little creatures are sure to make a great gift for somebody you know.

The dimensions of the bats are around 16x10x2. They come shipped in their own custom box with a certificate that has their name. If you live outside the US, please contact us to discuss additional shipping charges with you.

If you can not find a bat here, please take your time and browse through our "Batalog" on our website to see what you can find for your next occasion (www.theoccasionalbat.com or www.facebook.com/TheOccasionalBat).

FL SHIPMENTS:
Please note that orders shipped to addresses in Florida will require sales tax payment.

U.S. DOMESTIC:
When shipping domestically, we use USPS Priority which normally takes about 3-5 business days.

CANADA SHIPMENTS:
When shipping to Canada we use First Class International Service to help keep the shipping costs down for all of us. Because of this, delivery times to Canada are longer than within the United States, typically 6-10 days after we have dropped off the package. This service does include tracking, and we will send that information to you once we have printed postage. We want to be sure that you get your bats when you need them, so please order early. Thanks!

This was a Mother’s Day gift for my mom. The pattern is chock full of what look like screech owls,which she loves. I wasn’t sure she‘d dig a bat though but she loves her and apparently her male cat does is as well. She couldn’t stop taking about the quality and how great it was and she keeps it next to her on the sofa everyday. As can see in the picture it makes perfect gift to send by mail because all is packaged very nicely!

Whilst on holiday visiting my best friend, I became really ill so instead of having fun together she had to look after me. I was trying to find a present that was unique and stumbled across these bats - her favourite animal. When it arrived it was so adorable, and bigger than I thought. It was sturdier than expected, so sits nicely on her bed and doesn’t fall over or crumple. The fact it came with a name was so adorable, Victoria is such a great name for a bat. It was smiles all round as I’d found a uniquely cute present as such a great price. I have a feeling I’ll be buying her a few more so she can have a little bat family!

I love my new bats! I so appreciate the extra special goodies thrown in. Excellent craftsmanship and made to last. Packaged with care and even comes with a name card for your bat. Shipping was very prompt. Thank you so much for everything!

We love bats. We have these bats all over the house. Even our cats have bats of their own (cat toys, of course)! Bats have had a bad reputation for centuries. So we decided to make these nocturnal and shy creatures into something cute and cuddly so that everybody would like to receive one.
