Bulk Purchases:

FAO Schwarz reserves the right to restrict, limit, cancel or alter orders and the terms of purchase and return applicable to Bulk Purchases. The term “Bulk Purchases” is defined as purchases made for resale and/or purchases of greater than five (5) of the same item. 


Refunds are processed in the form of original payment, less the original shipping fee. Please note an additional $10 fee is applied to cover the cost of the pre-paid shipping label and our restocking fee.

All products must be in their original packaging and not used or damaged. If your returned item arrives damaged at our warehouse, we will not be able to refund the purchase.

Please note that during the holiday season, refunds for returns may take up to 7-10 business days to be processed once the item is received at our facility. We appreciate your patience.
