In the early days there was only Zetacreations (who’s toys we now sell).
As shipping was expensive and customs sometimes difficult, people regularly organised groups-orders.
One private individual who was lucky enough to own a credit card would take the risk and do the order for the whole group.
Years later a new company showed up, called Furrystyle and with their appearance we decided that a European distributor was needed.
With stock of their own, cheap, local shipping and acceptance of the local payment methods.
This was how YiffyToys(tm) was born.
Now, many years later the former owners of Furrystyle decided to concentrate on the non-furry population and sell everything that makes up Furrystyle.
We stepped in and christmas came early this year.
In a few days the website, domain name, molds, and existing inventory will belong to YiffyToys.
What will happen now?
We do have enough stock of their toys and a large, last order is still produced in the US to ensure that we can continue to sell and ship their toys during the transition.
We are conducting tests, talks and preparations to ensure that these toys will be produced again in the same quality you have come to expect.
This will take time.
This weekend the domains and web-site will be transfered to us.
For reasons of privacy we will (of cause) not get the customer database but a newsletter will inform the existing customers about the change.
A large batch of toys is still being produced, so that our inventory is sufficient to last for the duration of this transition.
We stopped selling Furrystyle toys from our US shop and are shipping them from our own stock in Europe instead. (We do ship to the US+Canada from here and we do show prices in USD if desired.)
Shipping of the molds is already being prepared.
We have already set up the first casting and mold-making equipment.
We have also already conducted successful test-casts in production quality and will continue these tests. After we are content that we can repeatedly create the desired quality, colors and softness we will scale up the equipment to production scale.
