Throwback Thursday - When Your Archeological Dig Turns Up Something Fun
Sex Toys on TV - Sometimes They Get it Right and Sometimes.....
I'm always very happy and super-interested when sex toys suddenly turn up in the tv shows I'm watching. Sometimes, as in the case of the first episode of Easy, they get it so right. But often, as in the case of the show I just started watching, Trinkets, they get it soooo wrong.
Trinkets is a new Netflix show about three high-school aged young women who form a bond around their shared love of shoplifting.
Greatest Hits - 2017
It's that time of year when we look back at the year that was. Here is our annual list of our best-sellers. These are the toys you loved in 2017.
Our tenth best seller is a return favorite. With a powerful vibe rivaling that of much larger wands, and a petite, light design, the Palm Power has been popular since it came out more than three years ago.
Fuze poured on the new toys this years and gave us lots of great shapes. They redesigned the old happy valley plugs with a new, more ergonomic base. These plugs are great for beginners but the come in four sizes so you can work your way from one to the next if you like. Sizes one and two tied for ninth spot on the best seller list.
#8 - We Vibe Nova
The Nova is an innovative idea that has really caught on. Nova gives you the shape of a traditional rabbit toy but makes the clitoral branch soft and flexible so that it stays connected to you no matter how you move it or how your body is shaped. Nova's outstanding quality, multiple settings, and great price made it number 8 on our best seller list this year.
#7 - Adore U Mike
This is a fun and surprising entry on our Top Ten. We sell a lot of dildos but we know that they rarely rival vibrators for top spots. People just love toys that vibrate. But Adore U came in last year with some great toys that have really taken off. Mike is from a line of 100% silicone, semi-realistic toys that look and feel great and don't break the budget. Mike also comes with a suction cup, making it harness compatible and great for play in the shower!
#6 - We Vibe Unite
We Vibe made a great choice in their updates last year. They brought us the amazing sync, with everything you could ever want in a we vibe and then thought 'What about those people who don't need all those bells and whistles and just want the we vibe shape?' The Unite has no bluetooth, no adjust-ability and no charging dock - just that great we vibe shape and function - and a 10 speed remote! And it's half the price of the We Vibe Sync! It seems like it was a good move because We Vibe Unite was our 6th best-selling toy last year.
The Magic Wand rechargeable drops down to 5th place last year but is still a favorite. It's one of the strongest vibrators on the market and the quality can't be beat.
#4 - We Vibe Sync
This version of the We Vibe came out in late 2016 and has proven to be a hit. It combines everything we love about the we vibe - the unique shape, remote control, powerful rechargeable motor - with a great new feature - the ability to adjust the shape of the toy! Sync is a hit in the store and was also our best selling toy at Taboo 2016 and 2017.
#3 - Mini Swan Wand
This one is no surprise to the Tickle Trunk staff. The mini swan was one of our favorites as soon as we saw it. Now that it's been in the store for over a year, it's our number three seller. This tiny toy with a strong rechargeable vibe and a great price, is also a favorite at our parties.
#2 - 10-speed Teaser
Our number one toy from last year switched places with number two. The teaser has been a popular toy for several years now and continues to be.
#1 - Soft Rain Bullet
The runner up last year is our winner this year. The soft rain's compact shape, multiple speeds and affordable price tag make it a popular choice. It used to be that if you wanted a quality toy made of quality material, you'd have to spend a lot of money. Our top seller for this year proves that's no longer the case.
There's so much innovation and imagination going into to toy development now. We're looking forward to seeing what's coming up for 2018.
Greatest Hits - 2016
On this last day of 2016, we thought it would be fun to look back and find out what our most popular toys were this year. Many of them are no surprise to us. If you're not familiar with them, follow the links to find out more (and pick a few of them up at a sale price for a short time).
#10 - We Vibe Tango
We Vibe quality makes this rechargeable bullet a great choice.
#9 - We Vibe Classic
We Vibe came out with many new products this year, but the original favorite shape remained a popular choice.
Sometimes the oldies are the best. The Magic Wand was one of the first modern vibrators and remains on of the most popular to this day.
And sometimes an oldie needs a modern twist. This lighter but still powerful wand was a big seller this year.
#6 - We Vibe Touch
This one has been a favorite since it came out four years ago.
#5 - Mini Swan Wand
We fell in love with the Mini Swan as soon as we saw it. Considering the fact that it came in half way through the year, it's number 5 spot is impressive.
#4 - We Vibe 4+
We Vibe has been one of our best selling toys ever since it was created more than 8 years ago. This version, introduced in 2014, added smart phone control. It's remained popular through this year.
When the favorite Magic Wand got a rechargeable update, we knew it would be popular and we were right!
#2 - Soft Rain Bullet
Sometimes you just need something compact and simple. This has been a favorite choice for portable, quiet, and affordable toys.
#1 - 10-speed Teaser
It used to be that you if you wanted a good quality, silicone coated toy, you had to pay a lot of money. This gem that we found a few years ago proved that is no longer the case. The Teaser has been one of our top choices for a versatile, quiet, durable first-time toy. It's our winner for best seller this year.
