SEPTEMBER 18th THROUGH OCTOBER 17th

I will be at the Big E (in the Connecticut Building) from September 18th through the 26th and then on vacation from October 2nd until the 16th and unable to process new orders. Ready to ship items will ship in mid-October when I return and custom ordered items will be processed and created in the order that they were received starting in mid-October. Your custom order is not confirmed or guaranteed for Christmas delivery until I return your inquiry with pricing and an approximate turnaround time. It is possible that orders placed after September 26th will not be available for guaranteed Christmas delivery but I will make every effort to help.

BOOK: Christmas with Rita and Whatsit by Jean-Phillipe Arrou-Vignoud

Hardcover Book - 32 pages

Reading age 4-8 years.

Rita and Whatsit have a lot to do to get ready for Christmas, including writing to Santa (he needs a few suggestions, of course), decorating the tree (with sausages), and making a delicious snack for Santa and the reindeer. Together, Rita and Whatsit are more than a match for all these challenges. But the hardest part comes last - staying in bed!

PRODUCT INFORMATION

Ready to ship options will ship in 2-3 business days using the carrier selected at checkout.

Custom made to order items will ship in 7-10 days. If there is any change to this estimate, the buyer will be contacted directly.

My products are hand made from raw materials and hand finished using child-safe paints and a water based child-safe sealant. Every piece is hand cut by me (unless otherwise noted) and then sanded and painted by hand. As a result, it may have minor flaws and inconsistencies that are typical of a handcrafted product. This also means your toy is one-of-a-kind!

- While I make every attempt to smooth rough edges, you may find some edges to be more rough than others. I purposefully leave the edges of our stackers a little more rough so they are easier to stack. To further smooth these edges, use a brown paper bag (like a lunch bag) and rub vigorously over the surface until smooth. This will not disturb the paint/stain.

- Due to the nature of painting/staining wood, there will be areas of your product that show unique patterns, wood grain, knots and coloring. This is normal and part of the character of a hand made piece.

- I try to wrap each piece to minimize interaction while shipping, however, sometimes wood dents do occur. To remove a wood dent, place a wet washcloth (wring it out) over the wood dent and press with a hot iron. The wood fibers will fill the dent back in after one or two attempts.

- All of my products are finished with a water based sealant, however it is possible that some paint or stain will still transfer or bleed. I do not recommend that children put these in their mouth or play with the toys in water.

- My products are recommended for children over the age of 3. Younger children should be supervised closely. Small parts are glued in place, but I cannot guarantee that they will not come loose over time and become a choking hazard. The Menorahs contain small magnets in the wood pieces and in the crayons. Please supervise your child closely with these items.

- Wood is a strong, but not indestructible. Heavy handed play will result in breakage or paint chipping.
