I do not have a cart system that can analyze the weight of everything purchased and calculate the shipping cost for all the possible locations.

So if you are ordering anywhere outside of the U.S. the shipping cost that you are first charged is only part of the total cost. Your order will be packaged, weighed, and the exact shipping cost will be calculated. I will then send you a “Money Request” through PayPal for the additional amount. You can then choose to either pay or to contact me to refuse it. I will then cancel your order and refund your total in full.


You can contact me at andy@opticaltoys.com with your order. I will package it, weight it and determine the exact shipping cost, and then send you a “Money Request” for the total. Again, you can choose to pay it or refuse it at that time.


As an alternative, order from someone in Europe! There are two places in Europe that carry some, but not all, of my products.

Heeza in Paris – www.heeza.fr You can order online.
Art Data in London – www.artdata.co.uk – They do not have an online system – contact martin@artdata.co.uk . They mostly carry the flipbooks, and not all of the titles. Also, they distribute my toys and books throughout the UK and Europe. Martin can tell you what places nearest to you that carry my products.
