From my understanding, they don't have a very long life. You're definitely not supposed to keep them around too long because they are porous. I've heard things about the material degrading. I know it can basically melt if stored in contact with other toys. It's just generally not a great material. Not very safe, doesn't last, smells awful. I just wouldn't own one.

Jelly toys are too porous for me to even consider using them. They are impossible to clean.

Yes, jelly toys eventually break down. How you care for them can increase or decrease the speed at which this occurs. Storing them improperly is usually the cause, but exposure to heat, sunlight or fabrics can also cause them to degrade quickly.

If you are prone to infections or share your toys, condoms are an absolute must when considering a toy that is porous---not just jelly, but anything that is not plastic or silicone.

Storing porous toys in their original packaging is the best way to prevent this and you should always clean them thoroughly before and after use with a toy cleaner. I've found, in the past, that antibacterial soaps are actually too harsh for jelly toys.

Probably. I have a 3-ish year old Dick Head that smells/tastes a lot worse than I thought it used to. (And I got it as a costume/novelty, not as a toy to use).

But the price isn't that great if you end up chucking the toy away in a year or two.
