I know there have been topics on this before, but I'd want to ship a giant Minty plush from CT to Indiana. What's the cheapest way to do this and how much would it cost me? I can't weigh her because she's 650 miles from me and my parents would be doing all the shipping.

Anyone have one shipped before? If you could just give me the weight- or could she be shipped in a huge bag for cheaper?

I got mine from overseas and she was wrapped in about 5 black heavy duty garbage bags. None of the bags were ripped so I would say if it came from overseas fine you could probably do it to ship in the US

I've never shipped them full as they're too large for any bags other than garbage bags. Can you get your parents to weigh her?

me too.
if the legs are broken so she lays down you can get her in a smaller dimension package...but don't break them just to do that.
some people destuff them and only ship the shell. but I don't like that idea personally

I had a Frilly Frocks shipped to me, I think from within the US. She actually came in her original shipping box from Hasbro (which I saved, too). I think it was about $35-45 for shipping. Wait a minute, let me find the auction.....

From Massachusetts to Missouri, $39.86 for UPS Ground. I think she weighed something like 20lbs? I'll check the box when I get home to see if it has a weight on it.

Thanks Hodgemo! Please check if you can. I'm not sure if I can trust my parents to weigh her correctly. Smile

Any luck on this? How much do these ponies weigh?

Thanks!

Might want to pm Hodge - see if she had any luck with the weight. Also if you take a look at USPS for a price calculation, you need the height, length and girth of the parcel as well to get a quote.

This page only asks weight, but the pages thereafter have dimension specific questions:
