What's In Production ?

Please Read Carefully

The info on this page is to inform our customers on the items we are working on now and in the near future.  ("future" here is defined as: in the next few weeks).  Instead of going to the website each day to see if something is back in stock or wondering if you will ever receive an email from the wait list, come to this page for general info.  Items on this list are to help you and your purchase planning.  NOTHING IS GUARANTEED.

The list below in GREEN are items that have been recently completed, are in stock, ready to order and ship out. The list below in the top 10 are what our hands are working on right now.  (If it is in the top 5, that tells you that they are in the paint room OR in the final stages of production.  When items hit the top 5 it also means 5-10 days before those items are back in stock and available for purchase. 11-20 are items we know you've been waiting for, and we need to start on.  If the out of stock items you are looking for are not on the list, it just means that they are further out OR you just missed the last production run of that item and are out of stock again.

We update this list every few days, so check back often for any changes.  Items that are further down the list are a very "general" production "wish list" to us that may be very fluid (some leapfrogging may occur).  As items work their way up the list they are more likely to be next in line for production.

We always encourage you to click on the "WAIT LIST" button for a particular item.  We refer to those wait list numbers when producing items, please only sign up for items you intend on purchasing when back in stock.  Our system automatically emails you when the items you sign up for come back in stock.  We usually release wait list emails 6pm - 7pm CST any given evening.  THANK YOU!

Check back to this page often.

With the enormous amount of orders for our products over the last couple years, you can tell by the out of stock items that we simply cannot keep up with demand.  If you are interested in our items for special gifts you might want to grab things that are in stock as they become available and accumulate those items.  PLEASE do not think for a second that you can put your shopping list off and purchase everything your little engineer wishes for all at one time.

We thank you for your support and your patience!
