Holiday shipping info!

We are working hard to get your orders shipped as quickly as possible! Please help us by carefully checking your order confirmation email to ensure we have your correct shipping address and preferred shipping method! Some common shipping methods are detailed below to help you plan your shipment. Feel free to email info@shawnimals.com with any additional shipping questions, but hurry because time is running out!

  • USPS Priority mail to a US destination will usually take approximately 1-3 business days after the package is shipped to deliver. The post office does not guarantee this time frame and packages shipped during times of high volume (like now!) can sometimes take longer.
  • FedEx ground is usually 4 business days after the package is shipped to west coast, 2 business days to the east coast since we’re based in Chicago, so please plan accordingly or upgrade shipping if needed. If you’re in the Midwest, may get to you in a day, but as always, check FedEx.com for the service map.
  • USPS First Class International will usually take about 10 business days after the package is shipped to reach the country of destination. This does not include time spent in customs or in the hands of the local post. First class packages to some countries will take much longer than this time frame and can occasionally take up to 30 days to deliver. Furthermore, USPS will not take any steps to trace a first class international package until it is at least 30 days out.

Please note: We simply cannot guarantee a delivery date for any first class package shipping to an address outside of the US since USPS cannot give us a guarantee. If you would like to be sure to get your package by the holidays or need tracking on your package, we suggest upgrading to priority or express mail.

Also note: Shawnimals will not be in the office and will be unable to ship orders or answer emails 12PM December 23 (CST) until December 27.

Feroshi the dino slug!

We know you love this wacky dino slug. After all, he’s not only an all-powerful deity in the land of Ninjatown (or so the Wee Ninjas think) he also helps out his ninja pals all of the time, including this time! Mr. Demon has somehow gained control of Ninjatown Academy, and was releasing all sorts of evil weirdos! Now Feroshi has stepped in to clean things up, and is consequently an honorary ninja. Feroshi is also the last NotM release for 2011

We think this means he’s simply inquisitive, but then again we’ve heard stories about these zombie things. Ok, for real: We’re following up our NYCC exclusive with this Ninja of the Month release, just in time for Halloween! Chunky? It’s not what you think. And the eyes on this one are perhaps the creepiest of all Shawnimals ever as well. Read on…


From the tag:
“Something evil and stumbly emerges from the Dark Forest! Something the Wee Ninjas have nicknamed Ol’ Chunky. We can’t help but feel a little bad for this Zombie, and his endearing lack of basic motor skills. Look how he keeps bumping into that tree! Aw, so clumsy and cute…”

Motto:
“Errrrr… Sooooo forgetfullll…”

When you order this $30 product you get

  • A handmade ~ 7″ x 7″ plush Ninja limited to 100 pcs.
  • Signed and numbered fancy hang tag
  • Special features – Exposed brain bit and super creepy eyes!
  • A character sticker
  • A character button

NotM teaser time!

It would seem evil is a ongoing theme here at Shawnimals lately, and the same can be said for Ninjatown Academy! No idea where Ol’ Master Ninja and the rest of the students have gone… or if they were kidnapped?! In any case, Mr. Demon is still “teaching” class to his Wee Devils, while Mastermind Ninja pulls the strings behind the scenes. Interesting developments! However, one important question remains: What will the next Ninja of the Month be? Any guesses?

Missed comics…oops!

We’re not gonna lie, we’ve been REALLY, really busy lately, and our beloved webcomic Life in Ninjatown suffered. Well, kinda… see we had the ideas, but not the physical comic to show, so we’ve just updated it with three we missed. Better yet, here they are in order titled Happy Z-day, Air head, and Mach(o) 3 respectively…
