How to Get Items from Build A Bear USA Delivered to Australia
To have any item delivered overseas from the Build A Bear USA, you’ll need a physical address based in the United States.
This address is what you’ll use to receive packages from Build A Bear.
I’m sure you’re asking how you even get a physical US address if you don’t live there or even have friends or relatives in the US.
Thankfully there are companies called Freight Forwarders that can give you a US address to use. These companies are based in the USA and will assist you in shipping your items internationally.
Once you sign up with one, you’ll be given a US address. You can use this address when ordering any goods or services from American companies.
