Covid 19 Shipping Information

All orders are continuing to be shipped out either same day or next business day from our warehouse in Ohio. Due to COVID-19, USPS delivery timeframes have been unreliable. As a company, all we can do is ship your product as quickly as possible and let USPS handle the rest. Our promise to you is we will do our best to get your package out same or next business day, but we cannot be held responsible for the USPS taking longer than normal to deliver packages. 


We will accept exchanges within 3 days of receiving your item. An exchange must be unworn, unwashed and unscented. We want everyone to be happy with their purchase!

All exchanges will be done using a Great Lakes Kids gift card that then you are able to use to purchase anything else on our site. Shipping charges are non refundable. We will send the gift card within 24 hours of receiving your return and verifying that it has been unworn, unwashed and unscented.
