Product Review: Laya Spot by Fun Factory

August 27th, 2010 Comments off

Ooo, what’s that?

Can you tell I’m on a Fun Factory kick? I’m determined to try all their toys eventually.  I’m considering purchasing a couple of their anal toys next month when I make my ginormous plug purchase.  And by “ginormous” I mean “lots of plugs”, not “seriously huge plugs”.  Perish the thought.  Ow.

Oh yeah… I’m supposed to be telling you what I’m reviewing.

That’s none other than Fun Factory’s Laya Spot in vanilla/baby rose.  A clitoral stimulator that runs on two AAA batteries, rechargeable or otherwise.  Read more…

Rubber Ducky, You’re the One!

December 15th, 2009 Comments off

0156400-dOoo, what’s that?

Isn’t he adorable? That is the Santa Duckie Ornament from Big Teaze Toys’s I Rub My Duckie line.

What’d it come in?

As you can see, Santa Duckie comes in a clear plastic ornament box decorated with silver snowflakes.  The back wall is blue and the floor is, too.

They really don’t want that little guy rattling around in there, though.  He’s tied up and taped and tacky glued to the molded plastic mount inside the box.

How’s it made? Read more…

Product Review: Babeland Body Essentials Kit by Babeland Toys

October 24th, 2009 Comments off

BabelandBodyEssentialsPleasureWe’re growing ever more addicted to massage oils and massages.  Between the scents we’ve tried and watching M visibly relax into the mattress, it’s become something I adore even as my hands begin to ache with the effort.  So when Babeland Toys offered the Babeland Body Essentials Kit in Pleasure for review, I ignored all the other options.  We are, after all, still on the hunt for the perfect massage oil.

I was a ball of excitement when the UPS guy finally dropped it off.  And then I left it sitting on the dresser for… a week? At least.

When I opened Pleasure’s clear blue plastic case, I got a little worried.  Her Lickable Oil and BabeLicious are both Mojito Peppermint.  M isn’t much of a mint fan.

A proper mojito, for those not in the know, is made with lime juice, mint leaves, pure cane sugar, good rum and a dash of soda water.  They’re often garnished with a piece of sugar cane and a sprig of mint leaves.  They go down easy, quench your thirst and give you a warm, comfy buzz, without leaving you feeling icky in the morning.  And they happen to be my favorite drink to relax with.  Read more…

Product Review: Kookie Riding Crop by Kookie Intl

October 18th, 2009 4 comments

1061000-aOur first riding crop is about twenty-two inches long.  The handle is rubber and the shaft is metal.  And the tip is two pieces of weak leather glued and sewn to the end.  It was one of those “This really sucks but we can’t afford the alternative.” buys.

And at first, we loved it! But eventually it began to fall apart, and the leather weakened even more.  Before too long, the tip of the metal shaft, which is ridiculously sharp and poky, started to come through the leather and began leaving cuts in my skin.

So when Babeland Toys offered me the Kookie Riding Crop I was ecstatic.  I mean, look at it! It looks hella better than the one we bought from one of the local sleaze joints we call “adult bookstores”.  And, even though I love crops, I had begun to hate the one we had.

The Kookie Riding Crop is eighteen inches of leather and nylon.  The handle is a rubbery material which prevents slipping.  The shaft is weaved nylon – which definitely beats metal in impact play! – and the tip is leather.  The tip is three and one half inches long and one and three quarters inches at its widest point.  It’s all one piece folded over and sewn to the tip.  Tightly wrapped around the bottom of the leather is nylon thread to be sure the tip doesn’t slide off.  Read more…

Product Review: Fusion Duality by Evolved

October 5th, 2009 Comments off

When Babeland Toys showed me the waterproof Fusion Duality by Evolved, I was skeptical.  Anyone who knows me knows I’m very visually oriented.  So the beauty of a vibe turns me on to it almost as much as the other aspects.  And in the pictures, the Duality looks flat and plain.

But I figured, what the hell.  You can’t even begin to judge a vibrator by its photograph.  And when Cin told me she was reviewing it, too, I thought, “Opportunity! Here’s our chance to compare our vibe tastes!”

When it arrived, I ripped into the box, barely taking my eyes off it long enough to avoid tripping up the stairs.  I didn’t realize the Duality was by Evolved until I opened the box, so imagine my surprise when I pulled a white tin sporting “Evolved” in purple letters floating on black trim out of the plain brown cardboard.  It was instantly obvious that the photographs of this toy do not do it justice.  Read more…
