Have you ever had toys of conflicting materials warp each other in any way?

This is my biggest nightmare! Because of this, I keep everything in bags.

No, haven't had this problem yet and I don't have a storage method. Different and same materials touch each other

Metal toys can touch each other, with the only risk being something getting scratched.

Glass toys can touch each other, with the only risk being a scratch or chip if they're jostled and clink together hard enough.

Wood toys can touch each other, again there's scratch risk, but nothing chemical.

Pure silicone toys can touch each other with complete safety, the only issue then becoming shared lint.

Hard plastic toys can touch each other with no consequences whatsoever, just like any other household plastic.

The things that actually can't touch each other, and which also can't touch pure silicone, are: silicone composites, TPR, TPE, PVC, rubber, latex, skinlike materials, and most infamously jelly. Various combinations of those can cause chemical reactions with each other and melt into each other. They can also damage pure silicone. A jelly rebbit can even melt itself, if the clitoral attachment rests against the shaft.

Regardless of toy types, it's a pretty good idea to keep each one in its own pouch, to prevent chemical melting, to keep things from getting scratched, to keep things clean and lint-free, and to prevent spreading any germs if something accidentally gets put away without a thorough cleaning. Pouches don't need to be expensive. You can use sandwich bags, old socks, cosmetics bags, wine bags, or bags designed specifically for toys. It's best to use padded bags for glass and wood, lint free bags for silicone, and bags that seal tightly for skinlike toys that need to be stored with corn starch.

My glass are stored in the pouches that came with them, the plastic and metal lay on a shelf and everything else is in it's own bag. Better safe than sorry in my book.

i havent had an issue with it yet, but as i'm getting more expensive silicone and such items i've been looking into storage ideas, may start putting them in ziplock bags until i can think of a less ghetto looking option lol

Thanks for the info! I've always heard warnings about storing toys away from each other but I wasn't sure which materials were the problematic ones.

I purposefully threw a bunch a few toys into a bag (they were headed for the garbage anyway) to see if they would melt or deform, and even after a month they were perfectly fine. I was surprised, but that doesn't change how I store the stuff I don't intend to throw out — each item gets its own pouch.

In the past, the cheaper materials would mess with each other and be ruined. Now we keep everything from touching.

I keep everything separated, even though all my high end silicone toys are supposed to be safe around each other.

I have not had this happen because I am rather nuts about storage.

I had two TPR rabbits stored together and they got warped a bit.

I know it can happen so I keep the toys separated. All my silicone toys are separated by a metal or glass one to prevent silicone-to-silicone contact.

Yep! Back when I was 18 and didn't know the differences in materials mattered...lost my very first toy to morphing I was quite sad!

I have had a jelly toy melt before, but it was packaged all by itself and it did not wreck anything else. It was something I had gotten and didn't like so I didn't care too much about it anyway.
