Not a day goes by without at least one, usually three or more email inquiries on the status of this amazing balance bike, the Yedoo TooToo. It's been sold out for many months, and the producer overseas has been having trouble finding all of the parts and pieces necessary to complete orders. Our production run was released over the summer. We've been patiently waiting.
Finally, there is some light at the end of the tunnel. We have a projected completion date of around November 15, which is great news! Here's the caveat: The cost of ocean freight has risen five fold and transit times are extended by weeks or even months. Add to this, the log jam in our local port of Long Beach. Even if our vessel arrives quickly, unloading it will be badly delayed.
Our solution may include air freighting a certain number of units to San Diego in time for the holidays, but that plan is still developing, and expensive.
Most customers are asking if they can get on a waiting list or pre-order the bike. We have done this in the past and we usually get some egg on our face when there is a delay, and we don't want that. It's a bummer for everyone.
So until our transport logistics are finalized, pre-ordering will not be opened to customers. Pre-orders require full payment up front, and it is only fair that we are able to provide a reliable ETA. Until then, stay tuned.
