In the United States, federal law and regulations indicate that all toy guns transported or imported into the country must have a 6mm-wide blaze orange tip or a blaze orange stripe thick on both sides of the barrel.

How to vacuum seal stuffed animals for shipping?

You can ship plush toys and stuffed animals in vacuum bags. Place the plush toys into plastic bags and use your vacuum cleaner nozzle to suck the air out of the bag.
