Answers to your questions about
U.S. Territories and
HOW WE DELIVER
Yes, we can ship to Alaska, Hawaii, and U.S. territories
outside the contiguous 48 states by U.S. Postal Priority where possible.
Additionally, sensitive to the plight of our many troops in foreign countries,
we can now ship to APO or FPO addresses. However, no tracking is provided by
the U.S. Post Office, which complicates the process. Although we anticipate
few problems, we can make no guarantees of adequate delivery.
Unfortunately, many of our distributors and suppliers will not ship by U.S.
Postal Service. Therefore, some items incur longer shipping time as they must
be shipped to our Colorado warehouse before being sent to these addresses.

Some items are unable to ship by U.S. Post due to size restrictions, and can
therefore, not be shipped to these addresses. If you are in doubt, ask our
We can usually ship your order from our warehouse within 12-48 hours of
receipt of the order. However, most of our suppliers will not ship by post.
Therefore, APO/FPO orders are usually shipped only from the home location of
Shop4-Toys in Littleton, Colorado. This sometimes occasions some delay in
shipping while an item travels from its original supplier to Colorado FIRST
and is then shipped to you.
The arrival time of your order is also dictated by conditions which are out of
our control. We would rather err on the side of caution than promise our
customers what others may not be able to do.
Usual U.S. Postal Priority timing should be calculated for all orders outside
the contiguous 48 states. APO/FPO Post can take from 2-6 weeks to reach you.
There is no reasonably priced, faster way to ship to most of these
addresses (including APO/FPO addresses) than Postal Priority. Please do NOT
request UPS Rush shipping for orders to APO/FPO, Alaska, Hawaii, or US
APO/FPO SHIPPING RESTRICTIONS
Most APO/FPO addresses have the following general restrictions:
- Packages may not exceed 70 lbs. (Some zip codes have lower
- Packages may not exceed 130 inches in combined length and girth.
(This means if you have a package that is 100" in length and 40" when you
measure around it, you cannot send the item)
- All packages must be sent via the U.S. Postal System. The post
office also requires companies or individuals to hand deliver packages being
sent to APO/FPO addresses. (This is one reason why many merchants won't ship
to APO/FPO addresses.)
- Firearms, alcohol, perishable foodstuffs and certain hazardous items
also are restricted. Each zip code may have an even more detailed list
of the restrictions for certain types of products.
