I would not write about a toy before using it, because I'd have to guess about a lot of the details.
What I try to do is use it and then think about who it would work for (and who it wouldn't work for), and use that to guide me. Instead of focusing on what *I* like about a toy, and what *I* would change, I make my statements more general. "Sensitive users may not enjoy this toy's texture" -- this can be said whether I like the texture or not.
I try to point out what features of the toy would make it desirable or undesirable to certain users in the main part of the review, and then in the personal comments / experience section I'll say whether I personally enjoyed it.
