How we’re going to ship Fabulous Beasts

Here’s a very important question: how do we manufacture and ship Fabulous Beasts to (hopefully) thousands of people? It’s one we’ve been wrestling with all year. We don’t just want to ship, we want to ship on time. To you! For Christmas 2016… It turns out the first thing we had to do was think globally. Over […]
