How about Custom Toy Manufacturing Costs?
Pricing of each manufactured toy varies with the particular design, size, and quantities. Much of the cost of plastic and vinyl toys is in the cost of the molds that are made for production. The molds are often complex and require multiple parts in order to get the highest quality reproductions.
We will limit these costs as much as possible without sacrificing quality. Our quotes estimate expected mold and manufacturing costs. We will provide firm prices for both after you approve your prototype and are ready to begin production. These prices are good for a fixed period, usually 30 days.
If you include your postal code and country in your quote request, we will also estimate shipping costs. Calculating precise shipping weights and volumes prior to manufacturing is very difficult, but we can often give you a general idea of likely final costs of the toys as delivered to your door or loading dock. When it is time to ship your completed order, we will have a firm quote based on actual measured weights and cubic volume of the shipment. We work with different carriers to negotiate the lowest possible costs for either air freight or ocean freight. The costs for shipping, especially by ocean, can fluctuate throughout the year depending on demand for shipping due to holiday periods and the world economy. Because of these fluctuations, shipping quotes may only be guaranteed for 15-30 days.
