Q. Do you ship outside of the United States?

Answer: No, we do not ship internationally. Unfortunately we have decided to cease international shipping. Our shipping costs have always been integrated with our carriers however they cannot calculate any duties or taxes imposed by the destination country when the order is placed. The additional charges are levied to the carrier and consequently billed by the courier (ex - FedEx) directly to our customer after the order is delivered. This has frustrated many customers so Pint Size has decided to no longer ship our products outside of the United States. We simply don't want to upset our international friends when the international shipping costs are already expensive.

** If you have placed your order with a shipping address located outside of the United States, our team will contact you to cancel and refund your order.
