Duty charged on the product is the purchaser's responsibility. Our products are identified as "educational materials" for the purpose of determining duty.

We ship the PRIORITY MAIL INTERNATIONAL rate and the approximate weight for a small PEGS is 3# and a medium PEGS is 5#. The post office zip code where your package is shipped from is 55014. The exact costs depends on what other items you order, but you can at least get an estimate of the cost.
