NOT FOR BABIES OR REALLY LITTLE KIDS: These plushies are not safety rated for children under 5 years of age as they have small, glued/sewed-on parts and are filled with pellets (some of them).

WHY IS SHIPPING SO MUCH? Because of the limitations of PayPal's shipping calculations, I am forced to consolidate its very limited shipping increments and sometimes overestimate the costs. PayPal is simply not sophisticated enough to calculate all the various weights and rates that vary within the U.S. and from country to country. When this happens, I will refund you any overpaid shipping.

FOREIGN CUSTOMS The Particle Zoo isn't responsible for any import duties or customs charges your country imposes on you. International orderers, please be informed that larger orders will probably incur a duty (especially in UK and Canada). The Particle Zoo does NOT pay for customs charges.

AAAHH, SHIPPING: Following the postal rates, shipping is determined by total weight of order. Domestically, we ship First Class Mail unless your particles are over 13 ounces, then it automatically goes Priority. Either way, this takes about 2-4 days.
International shipping is available – just choose your country* from the pulldown menu in PayPal when checking out. We use First Class International Mail (6-21 days depending on country) which is not trackable. Orders weighing over 4 lbs (1.8 kg) are shipped Priority International Mail (6-10 days). If you require tracking, please inquire about purchasing a shipping upgrade to Express International Mail (5 days guaranteed).

* I ship to any country the U.S. post office allows, but have had problems with delays to Italy and Lithuania, and no-shows to Brazil so please order at your own risk or inquire about a shipping upgrade with tracking. All orders to Italy are now shipped via Express International to minimize loss and so they can be tracked.
I highly encourage Registered Mail when shipping to Brazil or other South American countries. It is available for $12.95. Please email me to request it. Shipping is available to Mexico through FedEx or UPS only. Please inquire to arrange special shipping: particle @ particlezoo.net.

SHAPE & SIZE: Particle plushies may vary ever so slightly from the picture because they are handmade items. Being approximately "hand-sized," they range in size from 4 to 5 inches (9-13 cm), with the electron being the smallest, and the tachyon being the longest (width: 7 inches/18 cm). Colors and fabric may vary with material availability.

WEIGHT: Particle weights vary according to their properties. The dark matter, top quark and W boson, for example, are the heaviest, as they are stuffed with polished aquarium gravel. The massless bosons are the lightest—they are stuffed with polyester stuffing. The muon, a middleweight (very loosely speaking), is stuffed with poly pellets. I tried to make the tachyon completely massless but I'm still waiting for him to return from the past (future?) to find out if it worked.

IS IT A GIFT? Add a greeting card enclosure.

THERE'S MORE: Each particle comes with a small explanatory tag describing its properties.

I WANT IT NOW: Rush orders are sometimes available, please inquire (particle @ particlezoo.net). This is dependent on the current backlog of orders pending. Expedited shipping is via U.S. Express Mail (1-2 days U.S. / 5-8 days international).

PAYMENT BY REGULAR MAIL: We accept American checks and money orders. Orders will ship upon clearance of check. Please make checks out to "The Particle Zoo."
