Cheap product for a not so cheap price!

All in all, the Barely Bonds Kit did not prove to be as tantalizing as I'd hoped for. The material feels cheap, the feather tickler was worthless(but that's just me,) the cuffs were okay but not as great as I wished for and the blindfold was not as sexy as I'd hope for (although the inside furry black lining of the blindfold was quite comfy.)

The Barely Bonds Kit by Sportsheets was not all that I've hoped for. Thankfully, this was a free assignment; otherwise, this would have cost me $33.99! Almost 35 dollars for this product is certainly not worth it in my opinion. This kit includes velcro handcuffs, a feather tickler, and a blindfold; 3 items, which you would assume that if you were to purchase each of the three products separately, they would each be priced a little over $10! The products definitely seem dollar store worthy to me! I would not recommend this kit for beginners and I certainly would not recommend this kit for advanced users. The Barely Bonds Kit was flimsy and of poor quality. And while I appreciate that EdenFantasys provided this product free of charge, I do not feel that this product is worth the price.

The feather tickler has feathers tricking downwind at the moment of its arrival. It was not sturdily attached to the wand. And even if it was, I did not find much use to it sexually although I do have to say that the feathers are a really cute shade of darkish pink, violet, purple and black. I used some of the feathers as an accent decoration in my room. It adds a little fierceness to my whole decor. POW! With the feather tickler, I also discovered that my girlfriend is very sensitive in the back of her neck (to the point when her skin visibly crawls if I attempt to stimulate that area in any kind of way.) When I want to be a little child again, I will sometimes bug her and use the feather tickler on the back of her neck and view her reaction. It's priceless!

The package itself is not discreet whatsoever. I reside with one of my parents and my sister. There was no way I was disposing of this packing in my garbage! When I get packages that are not so discreet, I either a) immediately dispose of the packaging at the dumpster or 2) my girlfriend takes the packages to her house and dispose of it there. My family is really conservative and her family is more open-minded so we've developed that system to help conquer the problem.

The blindfold served its purpose(uninhibited my ability to see.) It has a elastic band to fit many different sized heads (which is a plus for me because I've been told that I have a noggin!) With the blindfolds, I felt that the sensation of feeling without seeing the act of touch itself, really heightened my arousal. I liked the faux fur that was featured in the interior. It made my eyes really comfy. But, the blindfold was cheap feeling, cheap looking, yet definitely NOT cheap. Quality is where this kit was lacking and for me, that was a deal breaker.

The velcro handcuffs was also the straw that broke the camels back, so to speak. They felt flimsy and they just did not turn me on. In fact, they were a complete turn off. But, I will add that these handcuffs were soft, cuddly, and able to go completely around my ankles. If you are a person who wishes to use handcuffs to substitute ankle cuffs (or traditional handcuffs do not necessarily fit your wrists,) you may find use to these. The cuffs are of pink flexy-vinyl and the lining consists of a black fur-like material.

I was expecting that something worth $35 dollars would have more substance to it. This kit did not. Either I'd suggest the price to decrease or for Sportsheets to increase the quality of this particular product. I have other products by Sportsheets and for the most part, I've had no complaints, but this one here does not take the cake as far as I am concerned. This is a beginner kit with a not so beginner price.
Follow-up commentary
This kit really is not worth it. Thankfully, it was free. I am just really disgusted with the quality of this darn kit! But hey, to each his own. I just hope that, should you all purchase this, it is worth your while.
