    Shipping is Craaaaazy
    I'm assuming because of Covid-19, but daaaaamn. I was about to buy a toy on siccauluna's site, shipping for a 75 dollar toy was 160 bucks! I thought I must have done something wrong, so i went on my computer. But it was the same, crazy shipping prices.
    And then it happened again with another toy from Japan, 50 dollars for shipping this time, not as much as the other, but still crazy high.

    I guess all toys have to be stateside for a while.

    I'm guessing those prices are DHL 'casual' rates (DHL is one of the only reliable services out of Japan atm - and unless you hit their high quota to have an actual account, rates are crazy high). EMS is cancelled atm (probably a metoo incident). I think there is another alternative shipping service that is more affordable - Blackbook Toy posted about it today.
