State Fees for Registration

State registration fees vary, ranging from as little as $5.00 to $750.00. Some states do not issue joint licenses, and instead require both the manufacturer and importer to register separately.

Global Registration Services collects the states’ registration fees in advance to pay on your behalf.

Stuffed Toy Registration Fees

Currently, three U.S. states require the manufacturers of stuffed toys to register:

Massachusetts (MA)

Ohio (OH)

Pennsylvania (PA) — will not accept a  toy Uniform Registry Number (URN) issued by MA or OH

Applicants are required to send four samples of each toy to GRS for submission to each state with the applications and payments. The cost associated with stuffed toy registration is roughly $1,000.

We accept VISA, MasterCard, American Express, U.S. Check or Wire Transfer ($30 fee applies). If you are paying in non-U.S. currency, this is a flexible option to make sure your payments go through.

Get compliant. Stay compliant.

Staying on top of license renewals can be difficult because license terms vary by state. Some of them expire one, two or three years from the date of issue. Others have a set expiration date, like June 30 or December 31.

Monitoring the expiration dates of your licenses is the key to staying compliant and avoiding costly violations. Global Registration Services offers Monitored Services to help you stay on top of license renewals, sales reporting and other areas of compliance. With Monitored Services, GRS can become your designated agent for complete compliance services.
