My bear took two weeks to arrive. But, she was nicely stuffed when she came. I was pleased.

It does depend on which shipping method you choose and proximity to the Web Fulfillment Center in Ohio. I often get mine in two days if I choose the Fedex $8.95 option. It will also go by business days, not days in general, and of course Holidays effect that as well.

When you order online, do they charge the sales tax for the state you live in or the state where you're buying from? Someone just ordered from the zoo today and was only charged a minimal amount of sales tax. Nothing near the 8%+ tax of St. Louis or where she lives.

I'm thinking you made a mistake when you said you order from the american site. The US site only ships to the US territories and does not ship internationally, just like the international sites do not ship to the US. You would first have to ship to someone in the US and then have them ship to you in Ireland.

As for ordering online, it's very safe, simple and easy to do and so far we have NEVER had a problem. It normally arrives within 5 days after ordering, but the arrival date varies upon the shipping you requested and the distance from their warehouse which is in Ohio. For me in NY if I requested standard shipping, which I normally use because we're never in a hurry to get them, it takes about 2-3 days to get here once it's been shipped. And yes you can order anything that's available on the site. Bears, clothing, accessories, if it's available you can order it.

BABW.com does ship to international addresses but the postage cost $25. I once ordered a friends2bmade doll because we can't buy them in the UK. I love it. I have also ordered off the UK babw site which was also good, I only did that because I forgot about the free dog tag weekend so I ordered on the Sunday and got it! I missed the free messenger bag though because my check didn't go into my account on time . I don't think the American site takes my debit card though, I had to use my Dads (with his permission, don't get ideas!). Overall I think ordering online is great, it's always so exciting when they come, it's like Christmas!

I stand corrected. - Amanda.

When you order it goes by your sales tax. What is nice though, is that it appears to go by the base State tax, so if you're in the sort of State where the sales tax differs every five feet (ok, so it's more like County lol) like Florida, then you can end up paying slightly less than you would at the store.
