I have concerns about packages being left at my address without requiring that I sign for them.

Request your package to be sent via Certified Mail. (There is a small fee to cover this UPS service.) Contact: or

Who is responsible if I can't locate a delivered package

Every Teddy package has a tracking number—refer to your shipping confirmation email. If the carrier shows your package was delivered to your shipping address but you cannot locate it, contact your local carrier/post office or USPS/UPS. Once we ship and the shipping carrier confirms delivery, Teddy is not responsible for refunds or fulfillment on lost or stolen items. We are happy to provide you with any information you might need to file your claim.

I bought a Teddy product at a retail store. Can I return it here at

Sorry, we can only accept items purchased direct from The store where you purchased the item handles refunds/exchanges in accordance with their own policies. Teddy doesn’t own any local stores—we just love all the stores that stock Teddy!

Make note of your Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) number once your return/exchange is approved.
  3. Include you ORDER ID and RMA # in or on your package that includes the items you are mailing back to us. While we do ask you covering shipping back to us, we will take care of shipping fees for anything we're sending back to you.
