    I talked to a customs official from Jamaica, and she informed me that I couldn't bring real ones there, either.  I found very real-looking fake starfish from the Christmas Tree Shoppe.  And they were CHEAP!  I think I'm going to leave the "Made in China" tags on them until I get them through customs so that I don't have any problems.

      Thats the route Im going. I'm using the starfish/sanddollars to make a christmas tree ornament for the favors. I can't imagine going thru all that work and getting them confiscated at customs. I think I'm going to save the tags that said they were made in China and pack them with the favors. Just worried because I have to take the sticker off to pack the favovrs in there favor boxes:/

        I think customs is a hit or miss. when we went to Cancun last month we thought they would stop look at our bags and ask us lots a questions. They only asked us if we had a sandwich! Sandwich?! really... no drugs, plants etc...but sandwich....smh!

        it is probably one of those things where it is illegal to bring starfish in, but the fact of the matter is customs is hit or miss, so there are probably more times than not you would just squeak past
