Would You Buy An AC Unit For Your Toy Storage?

~LaUr3n~ ~LaUr3n~
I was talking with another contributor about toys melting accidentally, not due to touching others, but because of temperature.

Would you shell out money to buy a Toy Chest that had built in AC for toys of jelly, cyberskin, etc.? Awesome? Or is that just a convenience that is unnecessary?

Or maybe even one that had heating to heat up glass and silicone prior to use instead of using other ways to heat it up?

I'm going to say maybe, but I don't know that it really gets hot enough for toys to melt where I live. But if I moved, possibly.

As myself, no. I don't have money to spend on something like that. Luckily we have central air so things wouldn't melt even in the heat of summer. But, if I had the cash to spend, well than maybe.

If I really enjoyed cyberskin and jelly toys and had a lot of them, then I might consider it. It seems silly to invest so much in something just to not protect it. Kind of like buying a fur and not having it stored or buying cigars without having a humidor. But since I'm a hard plastic/silicone kind of girl, I don't have enough of those toys or enjoy them enough to warrant their own cooling system.

Are there toys that would actually melt while simply being stored? And at what temp? This sounds unnecessary to me, but maybe somebody will post a good rational reason for this.

Most household thermostats are set at somewhere between 60 and 80 degrees. The normal human body temp is 98.6 degrees. Any toy that melts at these temps cannot be safe for internal use.

If my A/C goes out and my house gets so hot that my toys are melting, then I've obviously got bigger issues.

A small heater to warm up toys before use would be cool though.

I'd have to assume that a person who'd need this would not have air conditioning in their home and so in the heat of summer it could get above 98 degrees at times. Also, figure that if it's a box without a lot of air circulation for long periods of time it'd be hotter in there than in the open air.

Yea same here. I don't have many of that type, but if I had something I loved a lot and it was discontinued or super expensive, I might invest in this for protection. Maybe.

I don't have many toys made of materials that I'd have to worry about that. Also, all my toys stay indoors where the heating/AC unit keeps it a mild and perfect temperature. But I could imagine that if someone didn't have AC or was moving (and therefore had to keep them in a car, truck, box, or storage unit) might need to consider it. But it sounds like big bucks that could be used for more toys instead to me!

If there was something that I really enjoyed, possibly. But as of right now, I haven't found something that amazing that I couldn't easily replace.

I think it depends on where I am storing them and what state I live in. I'd worry more about humidity and such.

I refuse to waste money on toys that melt in the first place these days.

I do want the Xhale temperature bag for glass, though!

I don't like my toys cold...I do like them warm though

I would think that a mini-fridge would be a simpler solution. When I travel and buy toys I stick them in a cooler, since the temperature in a closed car can easily reach 130 degrees and they might be in there for days. Silicone and glass would be fine at those temperatures, but the packaging could be in danger, maybe.

Naw I don't see the use myself, would be a weirdly needless expense for me since I don't have many toys that can melt.

I think all you would need is a small fan, like the one on your computer. Just something to circulate the air. Hell, just drilling some holes would work wonders.

I wouldn't mind a toy warmer though.

Maybe I'm just weird, but I feel like if I lived by myself or with my partner and I had a box to put them in, I would just put a small box with a few toys in it in the fridge on really hot days.

The money would be better spent on bodysafe toys.

I agree with Carrie Ann. There are so many great toys out there made of quality material, why spend money on something that isn't up to snuff? If you already have it in your collection, that makes more sense. However, something that requires so much care to maintain probably isn't going to last long-term anyway. That's why I'm not so fond of jelly, cyberskin, and the like.

First of all... i would never put my toys in storage or anything like that... I would def want them with me... 2nd i have ac in my house so i dont see any need!

It really depends. I'm not a fan of jelly or Cyberskin. I wonder if an opaque bag in the refrigerator would do just as well? (As long as you didn't have kids or nosy room mates.)

I like my toys cold sometimes, and it's a pain in the ass (not literally) to use ice water, make the water, chill the toy, then do it again.

But, honestly, I doubt I'd spend the money. If I had extra money (which I don't at this point) I'd probably get a mess of Sugar Saks or a Toibox.

Hehehe - you already know my answer - definite yes! It was a Elastomer rabbit that melted. And I believe TPE will do it too cause on my Flirty Plush ball it has a very slight melted bit ... happened before I got it cause we havent entered summer here yet.

I do have an air conditioned house but unfortunately the cool air seems to bypass my room. Need a bigger one I think. I dont have a toy box - they are kept in a large dresser draw at this stage.
Actually, the Elastomer rabbit vibrator was in a wardrobe and it melted something shocking. My cyberskins are fine so far and a couple of them went through the same heat as the rabbit.

When we have a REALLY hot day, we can get up to 109 F.

Im also curious - what is classed as long term when referring to toys?
Just wondering what the average toy life is?

It does get pretty hot here in the summer. More humid actually. But I have A/C and I have never had an issue with anything melting. So I would rather spend the cash on something else.. like more toys

Most toys made of this material are so cheap, I would just buy a new one...when the temp would go down.

I would not spend the money on an ac unit, but I would consider buying a heater for the glass and silicone toys.

If a toy melt from just environmental temperature It wouldn't be worth getting or keeping, so no I wouldn't get an ac unit for toys.

I don't think it would be beneficial to me. I currently don't own any jelly toys, as I don't really care for the material. Even if I did, I'd just make sure to store them in a cool place where they wouldn't get ruined.

They're sex toys, not cigars haha. If you're that concerned about the longevity of your toys, spend the money for silicone toys. You'll be happier spending your money on toys rather than buying an expensive storage solution anyways

We try to avoid toys that are sensitive to heat. Not for that reason but because a lot of those toys that are heat sensitive aren't body safe.

I agree! I read this post and thought, "Oh boy, something like that would be expensive." I could by all the Jopen toys my heart desired for as much as something like that would cost.
