Hello, I am one of the experts on Just Answer and pleased to be able to help you with your question.
Well, yes and no; this is a zero rated supply under VAT Notice 708. You should have warned the supplier to issue an invoice charging VAT at 0% and he could have so warned his suppliers. These various people could now issue new invoices with the correct rate of VAT and refund the over payments. Needless to say you will not be the most popular teddy on the block!
Thank you for your support.
