Question submitted by Phil, age 10 and Bita, age 9
It seemed like forever... but forever really is a very long time if you seriously think about it. So when I think realistically about when my wheels arrived it really was not that long. They took about 3-weeks to arrive. My cart was custom made in a darling little factory and then shipped to me by the big brown UPS truck. See our story and scroll down on the page to see picture of the factory where my wheels where made. And where other wheels are still made today for other animals too!
