How are glass dildos so inexpensive?

For blown (no pun intended) glass, I feel like they would be more expensive! I guess they're not done by hand (more puns!)

That one to me seems reasonable, but I have see some glass dildos that are just outrageously over-priced. It's just glass, it's sand melted down, I'm pretty sure sand is cheap and easy to get, it's not like our coastlines are covered in it or anything. But I have to remember how much work is put into "hand crafting" some of these I guess. Also with the designs throughout the more elegant dildos. Okay my rant is over with, that Blossom G does look nice for the price though

there is free hand blown with out a mold or in these cases a mold is used the application of color I think is still by hand. Even when molds are used it is still handled by hands. I think the cost comes down to how quickly they can make them.

This. I worry that the cheap dildos aren't what they claim to be (super-strong and super-safe borosilicate glass, a medical-grade glass). I own a cheapo glass toy, though, so I guess I'm not THAT worried...

This, toys like those from SSA glass are made using molds whereas glass from Xhale and Phallix are made one at a time by caring artisans. That is where the price difference comes from.

Having said that, cheap does not always mean low quality. In my testing I found that a SSA glass toy survived two drops of 6-7 feet onto a steel table. Damn strong for a "Cheap" glass toy. Two of SSA's glass toys also survived going from boiling water to ice water as well.

What I find the major difference comes in the form of visual appeal, toys in the higher price range have more unique coloring and or techniques used to make them, take the Lattachino swirl probe. The swirled pattern is made by actually twisting two different colors of glass and then forming it into the shaft.
