Caution – Not for children 3 and under!
Shawnimals are manufactured in a factory in some cases and is always noted on the tag if so. In other cases, our items are handmade, and as such should be considered a collectible, and used as decoration. In all cases, they’re made with all-new materials – acrylic felt, synthetic fleece, plastic eyes, thread and a poly-fill material for stuffing. As the tag says: All New Materials. CHOKING HAZARD – Small parts. Not for children under 3 years. For reference, our Small Batch Manufacturer Registration Number for 2012 is 019308-022012.
As for safety, in short, yes, but we should note some important facts: First, some Shawnimals are handmade with the utmost care and are meant to be loved, but since Shawnimals are as much decorative artworks as they are stuffed things – and contain fragile stitching and potentially hazardous plastic parts – they are not intended as play things, pet toys or for children 3 and under. Second, the manufactured plush are made by the most current toy regulations and are tested by a third-party lab to ensure safety. However, Shawnimals LLC, any of its affiliates and Shawn Smith cannot be held responsible for any harm or injury that may be caused by improper use of any of the products featured on this site.
Illinois residents will have 9.5% sales tax automatically added to any order. Customers outside of Illinois do not need to pay tax, but may be liable for taxes in their own state. Please consult your state law regarding sales and use tax.

Shawnimals are either made by hand in Chicago, IL as decorative art objects, or made in a factory in China as specialty toys. All materials are non-toxic, and are tested by a third-party lab compliant with current Federal guidelines regarding products in general, specifically products that could be used by children. Please note: Because low-run fabrics are used at times in our collectible handmade or exhibition items, the materials used may or may not be non-allergenic. Please inquire before purchasing for such items.
Most sales are final. Why? Simply put, because the items that are featured on Shawnimals.com are often handmade and/or made in limited quantity. They lie somewhere between art, craft and stuffed animal. Slight variations – especially in factory made items – are to be expected, whether in size, shape and color. Should you find a major imperfection in your item, please contact us we’ll be happy to assist you if at all possible. Wrong shirt sizes can be exchanged for a different size if the shirt returned is in new, salable condition, but shipping the returned item is your responsibility.
