Gotta have a purple set!

Couldn't resist to grab a whole little kit of fuzzy purpleness!
Though this is REALLY a basic set and rather made for beginners, pretty much anyone can find some pleasures in it, as long as the tickler and cuff covers are handled with care.
If you can't wait to have more than one purple bondage toys for your collection then dare to grab it for the affordable price! But if you are looking for something that is made better, then you may want to skip out on these...

Use

Yes, there are better blindfolds out there. Yes, there are better ticklers out there. And no, the cuffs aren't "Oh my how mind-blowing" either. But when this little kit was on sale I couldn't resist grabbing it with other yummmy little things to make a small kit of fluffy, colorful lovable bondage toys!

Going with the reason of "I don't have any purple cuffs and blindfolds and feather ticklers yet," the Mistress Kit caught my attention on its highly affordable sale price. I was rambling to my Master before making my final decision that I would like to break my steady attraction to black toys all the time, intending to enhance my pleasure clothing and pleasure toys with the always adored shades of purple! He said "Hmmm-hmmm, it doesn't look all amazing and fancy", but I just rushed to grab it and rejoiced like a kid having a birthday when W/we finally received it with the other cute looking little presents!

The blindfold is a basic version, you know it by looking at the other cheaper blindfolds, and when you try it on you will see that sometimes you can still see. Nope, it doesn't block all light out unless you place it on your nose in the right way.

The feather tickler is tiny, very soft, very much something you would test as a first-time user just to see how it feels to revel in the bliss of running one along your skin.

The cuffs are typical pleasure cuffs, with the soft and somewhat cushy covers to ease the pain a metal restraint may threaten your sensitive wrists with.

If you are a beginner then this is a cute looking set of bondage toys to introduce the possibilities of light delights of being bound, restrained and teased. Advanced users may look elsewhere, for more serious cuffs for heavy play, a better blindfold for a total blackout, and a tickler that could last for a longer time than the somewhat ok purple feathers.

Design / Craftsmanship / Material / Size / Fit

Though the blindfold is made of cotton, being soft enough, it's not silky and smooth at all! The wonderfully purrrfect shade of purple looks like it tries to balance your disappointment about the rough feel of the material, coupled up with the black polyester of the straps.

The cuffs and keys are made of iron, and the faux fur lining is half acrylic and half polyester. The fur covering slides on the cuffs, and you can also take them off for more versatility. That is the negative part about it too as I see, because the fluffiness doesn't cover the cuffs completely, and it may move aside when being used. Other than that it feels very thick, fuzzy and a little bit padded to swallow some of the sharpness of the metal cuffs.

The feather tickler is made of turkey feathers and phthalate-free PVC. It is small and handy, but I noticed that out of the box one feather was already broken and just hanging low. That was quite the disappointment but something you would expect from such a basic and not pricey at all kit.

I can't smell any unpleasant odors at all (sorry but I wouldn't like to lick any of these fuzzinesses around!), you will only sniff the always pleasant scents of just bought clothing.

The sizes of these items are perfect for anyone, because of the stretchy straps of the blindfold and the adjustability of the plushy cuffs. I hope that you will forgive me for not measuring all three of them in every possible way, simply supposing that they would be a right size for anyone.
What you may wish to know anyway is that the blindfold is 7 3/4 inches long, the cuff covers are 8 inches long, and the feather tickler has the overall length of about 11 inches with the 5 3/4-inch-long PVC handle.

I doubt, to tell the truth, that anything in this set will last for a long time, other than the pretty sturdy looking blindfold and the iron handcuffs. The feathers are just too weak to stay alright for a long time, and I have my concerns about the craftsmanship of the cuff covers too, with some strings already coming loose and some fluffs falling out of the mass of fuzzes.

Performance

The blindfold was quite funny first, because W/we put it on me with the tiny extra triangle in the middle folded down on my nose. That way I could still see through two tiny holes (not too much though) and just recently found out today that it should stay folded up! That way, indeed, all the light is blocked out.

The feather tickler is very soft and pleasant, and I could tell that my Master handled it with perfect ease.

The cuffs, on the other hand, were put on only for a few moments, and I found it a little annoying how easily the covers were slipping over to the sides with each movement. Also, Master noted, a little disappointed, that the metal cuffs are only toy cuffs (seeing the flips to unlock them without keys), stating that at least the covers can be used on His real police handcuffs He received for free, for helping folks out with His techie skills at a police station once. (I know, hilarious - they asked Him what He wanted in return. He could pick from a few things and He went for three pairs of handcuffs of course!)

W/we will still have to test everything in actual use, and I am extremely excited to see how good or bad this set works out too.
    • Comfortable during use
    • Easy to put on / use

Care and Maintenance

Always remember to use feather ticklers very carefully, not getting them wet with any moisture!

While cotton is a very durable material, because of the polyester straps of the blindfold you want to wash it only gently with your hands in tepid water and some gentle detergent. It can be ironed at low temperatures.

The plushy cover of the cuffs can be cleaned using upholstery cleaner or a mild detergent in water, testing the chosen cleanser for compatibility on an inconspicuous spot first. After cleaning you want to let it dry completely before use, of course.

Storing shouldn't be a problem because each item is mighty flat in its own way! I will definitely keep the tickler away from any harm, and keep the cuffs and the blindfold in a closed place where nothing can encounter them.
Traveling must be as easy with this beautiful purple kit as well, because you can slide them away anywhere without worrying about too much space being taken up!
    • Easy to store

Packaging

This kind of Cal Exotics package is that much-liked kind of Cal Exotics package. Yep, with no barely dressed females in a motionless wiggling of their desirable curves.
Dr. Laura Berman smiles at you on this shiny paper box, everything has a redder shade of purple, and a picture of the set is shown both on the front and on the back. Some extra atmosphere-summoning blah-blah, info on the materials and, of course, Laura Berman. Basic, purple and neat, on more of the tasteful end.

It would be pretty fine for storing too, but I still think that the purple set will take up about half the space of the box. Because of that I will just find some better places for them, and rejoice that I have one less package laying around.
    • Discreet looking packaging
    • Good for storage
    • Recyclable

Personal comments

I am sure you already know I am not extremely impressed with this set, but I couldn't resist to put my paws on this beautifully purple kit, and all in all everything will have a good use with a careful handling. When something gets ruined I won't really worry, because in the meantime I will surely obtain higher quality versions, to have a better set of purple cuffs and a better purple feather tickler. And more than likely a silkier purple blindfold too.

But for now it will be lovely, matching my purple clothes, wigs, beloved style of makeup - I am content with my decision.
Just keep it in mind to get something better made, or handle this set very carefully, to enjoy it for a long enough time!

Experience

Actual testing is still ahead!
But for the few moments this set was used it looked like the covers on the cuffs will give a little bit of help in giving some comfort, the blindfold will keep all light out cozily, and the feather tickler will fulfill my infinite hunger for softness and fuzziness!

I will definitely report on anything ruined as well, because I don't think that the tickler and cuff covers will still look as good under a lighter, average use. I am mighty curious how they will deal with the pleasure service they are supposed to do for U/us!
Follow-up commentary
Well, pretty much there are only a very few things what can be called flaws in this delightfully colored kit...

The cover for the handcuffs is definitely not cushy enough for purrrrrrfect comfort, not to mention that it keeps on slipping aside on the shiny smooth metal. One feather on the tickler is hanging low as well, though it is something I expected to happen anyway. The blindfold REALLY blocks out all light well enough, only the gentle roughness of the material is what I would replace with something smoother or softer.

Still a good enough beginner kit, because feather ticklers are always a bliss to use, and the blindfold has that extra layer to cover your nose properly that most of the other blindfolds are missing in this prettiest looking shape. Not to mention that you can always take the fluffy cuff covers off, and just slide them on any other fitting cuffs just to give the fuzziness and wonderful color to something else.

Though I would find it a smarter thing to offer it for a lower price because of the not overly durable quality, just the blindfold was a great idea to obtain because of the special feature!

And anyway, who could resist these amazing colors? This is the only good enough purple kit before you go for the most wonderful Lelo bondage pleasure toys, am I right?
