Not to turn this into an economics lesson lol but making a product is not cheap. It takes a huge investment, patents, marketing, etc.
The larger (and more successful) a company grows, the more buying power they have, the more flexibility they have with pricing from their suppliers. I don't think any of the companies selling storage products to the adult novelty industry are charging more than they need to to keep their businesses going. Ikea, and the like, have enormous amounts of buying power - so they can put something out for $25 that would cost a smaller company almost that just to make one!
Expense is relative to need. If you don't have children, a cleaning lady, roommate, etc that will get into your stuff then you can just use a shoe box under your bed. If you are concerned about your toys being discovered and you want somewhere safe to keep them so you have access and no one else does... can you really put a price on that?
As to expensive, compare a ToiBocks for example to a Lelo - they're both relatively in the same price range, both will last for a very long time and they're both sophisticated looking. Now consider, you can get 5 Lelo, but you'll only need 1 ToiBocks...
