Packaging Plush Units

IMPORTANT: Failure to comply with FBA product preparation requirements, safety requirements, and product restrictions may result in the immediate refusal of inventory upon receipt at the Amazon fulfilment centre, disposal of the inventory upon receipt, blocking future shipments to the fulfilment centre, or charging for preparation at the fulfilment centre or for noncompliance.

Package plush Units, such as stuffed toys, animals, and puppets, so they will not be damaged during receipt, stocking, shipment preparation, or shipment to the customer. Units must be placed in a sealed poly bag or shrink-wrapped.
