I'm wanting to buy from Disney.com but  the postage price is pretty huge to Australia.   I'm after particularly Mickey/Minnie Mouse t-shirts, have seen them in Walmart.com but they don't ship to Australia.

Anyone got any idea where I can get them from?   Australia has a very ordinary range for the 12yo set.

I hope I am not hijacking your thread but I am wondering if anyone has ordered from American Girl before and what the shipping cost from there was like.

Have you tried Gap or Sears? I was in the US recently and they had Mickey Mouse and other Disney character t'shirts. Not sure if they ship overseas & how much it will be though.

With shipping forwarders the charges are not cheap most start at around $30 just to give you an idea. Then they charge around $5 for each 500g after. They also charge by volumetric weight so if you purchase shoes you can be charged for 2kgs of shipping for an item weighing much less.
