Tariff Notice 09.2019:
Tariffs are taxes that are placed on products imported from certain countries increasing the cost of the product, which is passed onto the consumer. Over the past year we have experienced increase in tariffs on merchandise made in China. On September 1, 2019 additional tariffs were levied against certain products we carry. We are doing everything within our means to limit the effect, but we have no choice but to raise prices on certain items.

Our products are tested by an independent internationally renowned third party testing agency; meeting and exceeding requirements established by the Consumer Products Safety Commission (“CPSC”) and conform to the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (“CPSIA”) of 2008. Certificates of compliance are available upon request. Products that require age graded labeling are done so, this way you can always pick the appropriate toy.

We delight in servicing all of our customers, and are happy to provide custom items. But please be aware, custom projects require high minimums and can take some time to complete.

What is an electronic packing list?  How do I get started with one?

Chances are if you do not know what an EPL (electronic packing list) is, you do not need one.  These electronic files are designed for redemption and amusement centers that use Property Management P.O.S. systems. Companies that provide these systems are Embed, Intercard, and SACOA.
If you have a P.O.S. system, you’ll need an EPL. This is a file that is emailed to you with all the items that were shipped with pricing and ticket information. You can sign-up yourself on the website to become one, or just call and speak with your account manager. On the website, simply click on the “Make Me an EPL Customer” button during checkout. It’s fast, easy, and free!
