Recieving gift from UK

    Hi

    I wonder if anyone can advise me. My daughter has got 2 soft toys to send over from the UK for my younger daughter, does she just use royal mail? Also do they have the tracking numbers and signiture on delivery, and how long/ expensive is it likely to be, are there restrictions?

    Another thing is they have a small musical box inside and am concerned customs may think something is hidden and cut open the toys, has anyone else ever had simular musical toys from overseas which arrived in one piece.

    Thank you!!

    Airmail should be fine. Might not be cheap though. They scan everything so it should be fine clearing the Aus end so long as nothing suspect shows up in the scan.

     

    If you want a tracking number and signature on delivery you'll need to use something like UPS or Parcelforce and that won't be cheap.

     

    It could also be sent surface mail which will take 2-3 months via sea/land but costs a lot less.
