I think it's just a luck of draw thing. The year I had Springy, I sent that gift out the earliest and it took the longest...I want to say almost 3 weeks maybe? I was close to having a panic attack, it just wouldn't arrive.
Last year it went really quick and I sent it pretty close to Christmas.
This year I ordered directly from the company thinking that would help with the stress. Nada!!!! It took forever as well
