How long do you spend researching a toy before buying?

Aesenthia Aesenthia
I spend a great deal of time researching toys before buying, but when I see a sale I tend to buy on impulse. My boyfriend tends to be the kind of guy who has a need and buys what he wants without researching or shopping around for the best price.

Well, maybe not months, but a good amount. We will do quite a bit of research here on EF and anywhere else we can find info and reviews. We do shop around for price somewhat. If we have a urgent desire will buy just like that ! We do like to buy from EF to support them though. After reading a lot of reviews on one of the nJoy products here made our first Eden purchase and then joined the community

I see somebody did a lot of reading on the Eden Cordless Wand. I'm guessing it's in the wish list.

I do a bunch of research, read reviews by those I trust....but I also tend to wait a bit before pulling the trigger on a newly released toy to see if it has any quirks.

My boyfriend isn't quite on the bandwagon on a wand (Hitachi or the like) quite yet and I have a hard time justifying the purchase of new toys. He ordered me a plethora of new toys (about 6 new toys), but at night that wand goes dancing through my head!! I am wondering if I do enough reviews and earn enough points, maybe it can be a gift to myself . I want to make the right choice though so I am doing quite a bit of reading to learn everything I can about them (I am also learning more about how to write a phenomenal review so win-win!)

I enjoy sales shopping, but only if a toy is highly rated, then I will buy it right away..hoping it's in stock.

I do as much research as I possibly can regarding our toy selection. I usually have 2-3 toys in mind and that I could potentially pull the trigger on, but, only purchase once the time is right. Manufacturers, Vendors and pricing are almost equally important to me.

Sometimes quite a bit and sometimes very little if any. When I haven't done the research, I've very often been burned by either something that was poorly designed or for some other reason just wasn't very good at all.

I'm an impulse buyer, usually I try things Eden suggest like the Valentines special or I rummage threw everything.

As an impulse buyer, have you ever been burned or gotten something and thought it should be better than it was Busy Me?

I used to be an impulse buyer and did regret buying a few items. Then I found a place called EdenFantasys. Reviews plentiful by ordinary people.

I tend to research materials and types for a while first so that when I'm looking at toys I know what I'm more interested in and comfortable with pre-sales
I definitely look at the reviews people leave to see how the quality of the toy has gone over with others to factor in part of my decision making process.
There are usually enough sales that something there will probably suit my needs.

I'm pretty indecisive, so I tend to take a long time deciding on purchases. It's part of my "process."

I usually take months to make these kinda of decisions, as my few impulse-buys have been a little disappointing in the past, haha.

I once spent a full year looking into sex machines.

Do tell, which one did you get ? His and hers or sharing ? Never mind, I think I know the answer.

It depends on what I want/need and if I am able to buy it instantly. Usually the higher priced items take me longer to buy so a little more research goes into them.

I didn't end up getting what I researched but I did use that research to purchase a set of sex machines. The cheap but no so nasty piston sex machines you can get from china for about $98 each.

They have the same features as the more expensive one I looked at just not a pretty to look at.

I really want a Sybian.

I always try and spend a good amount of time looking at stuff before buying it. I try not to buy cheap things and I'm afraid of the quality of product if I'm buying it online and can't physically see it.

yep, that is what I figured you would get. on the Sybian.
I also would like the Venus 2000 for men. If she gets one, so should I.

In one of my reviews the attachment for the Eden Wand, I described a "poor person's" sybian. Not quite but it does shake... and shake.

I don't tend to do much research...I've always been a bargain shopper, so when a good price comes up, I tend to snatch it up, even though I know you get what you pay for...hasn't turned out too poorly, though!

While I like when products are on sale, I always double check the entire span of the internet before I purchase something. I don't like buying toys and then finding out another site/company has it for a cheaper price. I admit I'm a big penny pincher. However, I also keep in mind that some places may not be authentic products, so I keep in mind a certain price range an item should be, but sometimes you do get lucky on price at reputable sites.

As long as you're buying quality products, there shouldn't be a problem. Just don't confuse quality with marketing.

Oh yes, OHW, I'm sure you would love the Venus 2000.

I found it a couple years ago when checking out all kinds of fucking machines. I even told a friend about it. Hahahahaha...he jumped on ordering it that day, annnnnnnnnnd, he has nothing but "after glow" praises for it.

It's like this. Had Ow got the Sybian, then I would have gotten the V 2000. Fair is fair, right ?

I have found videos to be very useful in reviews and learning about items. Now I tried to include a video in our reviews. Pics and videos are very helpful.
