Random toy grab-bag - do you find the idea interesting? Would you try it?

Arlinnae Arlinnae
So what if there were bags of different value toys, say for women, couples, anal, men cathegories? There could be any random toy in it from the site, perhaps worth more than the bag costs. WOuld you go for it?
I think I would love a surprise - up to only a medium price.

Oppinions?

I probably wouldn't opt for it at all. I like being able to pick and choose too much.

I think it's a fun idea - I've seen them already in toy stores. However, I wouldn't be willing to take the gamble.

I've bought toys like this in a store before. It is kinda fun The store I bought from gave discounts on the price of the grab bag according to how much you spent on your regular order.

I'd do it.

Nah, I want to pick out the toys myself. What if I already owned couple of the toys in the bag? And for something like vibes there might be one O.K. toy in the bag and two complete powerless cheapo toys...

If I was new to toys I'd TOTALLY do it, but I've reviewed and tried so many things on Eden I wouldn't want to get a duplicate.

Nah, I wouldn't go for it. I'm very picky when it comes to toys, I know what I like and what will work for me, so I don't even bother buying something that I'm not 1,000% sure on...I wouldn't be able to deal with not picking out exactly what I wanted. Lube/condom grab bags...now that's something I'd go for.

I personally wouldn't I am very choosy and picky when it comes to buying toys. I don't purchase anything less then an 8 on the safety scale. All my toys are silicone,glass and plastic bullets. I would be worried of getting some jelly or some other material that didn't fit my needs. I would rather buy something in a material that I KNOW will not harm my body.

As I am not new to toys I wouldn't find this beneficial to myself either since I know what I like,want and need in a sex toy.

Yeah, I think I'd want to get my own. I'm picky about looks, and there are a lot of toys that don't interest me at all, like realistic or freaky looking dildos, most of the men's toys, anything made of jelly, lots and lots of lingerie styles that aren't for me, most lubes unless they have a warming/tingling/inten sifying effect, certain scented items...I guess I'm a bit picky and I have a very clear idea of how I want my bedroom accessories to be.

It's a fun idea, though--I wouldn't partake myself, but I could see it being a fun option for a lot of people.

sounds like a fun idea but I would be cautious about the cost. if there was a guarantee at least 1 toy was equal to the price, I might go for it.

I would as long as I could guarantee something I would never use wouldn't be in there, like a jelly toy.

Ditto. So long as there was the assurance that you would at least get your money's worth in one of the toys, it might be fun to try. Especially if there was a chance of getting a luxury toy.

No. I'm very picky when it comes to toys, I might never touch the item (expensive or not) if it isn't something I'm interested in.

I think I currently would be happy to give something like that a shot, but the more I buy and try the more I am finding I'm kind of picky, lol.

No, I'm too picky for that. I want to know about sizes and shapes and materials ahead of time. Also, I'd be worried about wasting money on a duplicate of something I already have.

Not my thing. Like others say -- I'm too picky.

I'm a bit picky, but also very curious. I'd probably go for buying one.

I don't know. I might. I am very picky about materials, though, so the idea would give me some pause. I have such a small toy collection that I might consider a grab bag worth a shot, depending on the cost.

I think it could be a good way to try out new toys.

I'd try it if you could pick categories/pricing levels! And if there were a promise of no doubles if you ordered two (but not promising that after 2).

So say an (beginner vs advanced?) anal grab back would include some a plug, lube, a toy, a prostate toy (if selected), etc. A kegel grab bag might include a kegel exerciser and a book on kegel exercises (We need some of those). A couples grab bag would include a bullet, maybe a dildo, maybe a harness (if the price allows), lube, massage oil, edible lube, etc. The list goes on.

I say with price points comes better toy material and there is a disclaimer that says so. For some packages it would not matter but it would be nice to select toy material or select a safety range. Of course they would be excluded from sales because there is already a discount applied to them.

Grab bags would be more for beginning toy owners or ones who know they don't have a toy in that category. Some people own so many toys that a grab bag will cause them to get doubles and they will complain endlessly about it but that wouldn't be EF's fault.

Very well said!!!

I wouldn't call my self a beginner with sex toys but my collection isn't huge either (under 15), so I would defiantly be up for this, as long as we could choose out catagories cause there are some things that are off limits and Toys that relate to that would be useless for me (such as anal). It would be an excitement to see what you receive.

One of the shops that I used to go to did this all the time.

There were $5 grab bags, $10 bags, $15 bags, $20 bags, and $30 bags. And you could get them in different varieties. There were ones for couples, for him, and for her. It was a lot of fun. My friends and I would go in there and feel around the bags and shake them and make a choice from there. Then we would split the cost of a $15 or $20 one and pick and choose what we wanted out of them.

I would love it if Eden did that kind of thing. Then maybe we all could do a Grab Bag Goodie Swap, too

Well, maybe we could do something where you can choose the material, too?

My only concern with a mystery toy bag would be accidentally receiving a duplicate, especially if it were a more expensive toy. I have no friends who even know that I enjoy sex toys, let alone would they expect (let alone accept) a gift of one from me.

I would gladly do it with expendable goods like bath/body products and lubes, however. One can never have too much lubricant, and bath supplies are always welcome.

If they were in definite categories (i.e. toys for men, or toys for women) and the price wasn't too bad, I might give it a shot, but I don't think I've ever gotten anything nice from a grab bag deal.
