Yes, I've noticed that a few days ago...so sad! And the rest of the njoy items are all out of stock without an ETA date, I suspect they're going to share the same fate as the Eleven.

At the moment, the "My favorite products" page lists 5645 total products. That number used to be over 10000.

Just a note on the Tantus products -- these are all handmade and Tantus, though relatively popular, is a small company by comparison. Any number of these could be direct discontinuations on their part where they no longer cast these products, especially the multi-color items, as each product is hand-poured and packaged for sale.

The Revolution is indeed no longer in production; that was discontinued last summer.

As far as the rest, retailers often switch up their product assortment. As far as I know, there's no one retailer who carries every single Tantus item. I'm not involved in Eden's decision-making, but I imagine they're not making business decisions based on whimsy. I can't even get mad, as the expression goes.

If this helps at all: when Tantus discontinues an item, it's generally because we are making room for new stuff that's due to arrive. So while the Revolution is gone (sad sniff), I can swear to you that there are plenty of new Tantus designs on the way - I have seen the future, and it is full of promise.

Hey Jenna, it's always a pleasure seeing you on the forums. Thanks for responding to this post, and specifically my comment.

It is true that retailers often switch up their inventory and we're definitely not making decisions on the whim of a moment. I'm sad to see some of my favorite stuff go, but I'm really excited to see all of the new items that are coming in.

While we have you for a moment, are you going to continue with the tie-bright line?

Hello, and thanks for the nice compliment! I'm always happy to share Tantus news.

The Space Toys (Comet/Rocket/Meteorit e/Asteroid) are still in production, so yes, they're not going anyplace. I've been campaigning for more "fun" colors as well, not that I don't love Midnight Purple but sometimes a nice Orange is just the ticket, you know?

This summer we also discontinued some of the older-style anal toys (Infinity & Tulip) as well as the anal beads BUT take heart: my understanding is that they're out for redesign/update and will possibly return at some point in 2014. We also have several slimmer pegging-style toys due to launch in the first quarter of 2014, which I'm pretty tickled about (do any of the old-timers here remember the Faerie? There'll be a new riff on that design, this time with a better name!) Lots of cool things coming up.

Oh, and for fans of the bigger toys, they're now being done in a slightly softer silicone formulation. We got overwhelming customer feedback that a little less firmness in the material was vastly preferred.

Interesting thread - my observation is that EF is moving to in-house designs. So if Tantus makes a product that sells well - it won't be long 'til a similar product from EF comes along. So far I'm not impressed with EF's dildo copies - but their line of harnesses look pretty good.

I just noticed that the Pleasurepillar was discontinued, which I find amusing as it's in the promo for the current sale.

That means it's been sold out and we won't be restocking it any time soon.
