Typical production times at the factories we use in China are 35-45 days after design approval. Production times for the Fair Trade factory with organic or recycled PET fabrics can take from 45-120 days depending on the type of fabric being used. Manufacturing times can also vary according to quantities and complexity of the toy, as well as the workload at the factory. We will give you the most accurate time estimate once the sample is completed to your approval and you are ready to begin production. Once production is completed, delivery times via ocean are approximately 30-40 days, while air freight times can vary from 2-10 days depending on the freight carrier. All told, including a few weeks for an average sample to be produced and approved, we recommend allotting about 14 weeks for standard ocean delivery and about 8-10 weeks for delivery by air freight. During certain times of the year, usually starting in early summer, the factories can be very busy fulfilling the next season’s holiday orders. This may add a bit of time to sample construction and production runs.
