Anyone in the Czech Republic or Slovakia help me with the following?

I'm a big fan of the Czech director Jan Sverak, and he has a new children's fantasy film titled, KUKY which came out a few months ago. Anyway, the title character which is a pink stuffed bear-like creature is available as a stuffed toy. There's a link to the official store but it's all in Czech and doesn't seem to be international friendly. See link:

I'd love to get one of these dolls/bears for my collection. How much does that item convert to US dollars and what would it cost to ship it to the USA?

To find out more about his film and related trailers link here:

From what I understand there will be an English friendly dvd coming out in early November.

Anyone who can help me on this, it would be appreciated.

oanda.com says 275 Kcs=15.4569$.
But I don't have any time machine to help you out with Czechoslovakia, although I'd like to get the TV series for kids Arabela and Navstevnici from there.

I don't quite understand the time machine part of your reply, but I appreciate the price conversion of the listed item.

Re: Anyone in Czechoslovakia can help me out on this?

Your title brought back fond memories from the times when there actually was a Czechoslovakia. I even visited it once (the current territory of Slovakia).
The TV shows I mentioned are obvoiusly Czech-heavy, and most of the films we see or like are Czech. The Slovak part is pretty much in the shade, although it has great achievements such as http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0167382/ .
(this is another reference for people who like films about Gypsies)

^ Heh... Yeah, was coming here to post the same thing. I feel like it could be part of the If/Then game: "If anyone can score me a trippy doll from a country that no longer exists,then..."

... you'd have quite some skills.

Okay, I get it guys! Talk about my mind being in retro I meant those living in the Czech Republic or Slovakia. So far no one from these European countries has responded. Oh well...

Andrash is not too far, though. I wonder if they ship to Hungary.

I went to Prague last summer and watched Spongebob Squarepants in the brief time I was in my hotel room. I really didn't think they had original programming.
