Layout improvements

We have made a number of improvements to the layout of the home page.

  • The Brexit text is now more concise and uses up less space.
  • The footer is not horizontal and does not cause excessive scrolling
  • advanced search (often not found) is now prominently in the center
  • We added a widget to display products that are currently reduced in price (if any)

Stupid Austria packaging-recycling law

Background info

We do pay for recycling all cardboard and plastic we buy or import.
We do send proof of the amount we licensed to the German authorities.

Sadly, there is no European licensing.
That’s obviously bad with 27 EU countries.

We have absolutely no problem doing the same for the cardboard and plastic our shipment to Austria make up.
It’s a tiny amount. Licensing it is not overly expensive and after serveral weeks of research, easy to do. The price is mainly made up of an administrative fee per license. The actual amount of licensed material is mere cents.
Just even more yearly bureaucracy to handle.

The problem

The problem is not licensing our materials for recycling in Austria.
The problem is that Austria demands a company in Austria to act as a representative.
§ 16b Verpackungsverordnung 2014 „Bevollmächtigter für ausländische Versandhändler (Verpackung)“..“

There is no minimum or threshold anymore
They demany this the very moment any business sends a single paper envelope to Austria.
There was a Minimum business size called „Kleinstabgeber“ but is it discontinued 2022-12-31.

And enlisting with any Austrian representative („Bevollmächtigter“) is really expensive.
While the recycling makes up 40-80ct (mainly due to a minimum administrative fee),
we would have to charge an additional 8€ per delivery to Austria to offset this.

Changes

Insted of 8,8€, we will raise the shipping prices for Austrian customers by 3.10€ per parcel to offset a part of this additional cost.
Starting with February update to shipping prices because DHL lowered it’s monthly „energy surcharge“ for German destinations.
All non-recurring cost for registration will thus be paid by us (and thus by all customers collectively) and the recurring cost is distributed based on the amount of parces to Austria we shipped before the Covid-19 pandemic, supply chain issues and global recession.

A delivery by Exotic Erotics just arrived

Stock status

All 135 Exotic Erotics models are currently still in stock.
Remember that we just lowered the prices, prior to this delivery!

Custom toys

We do offer custom toys to be included in the next order.
Please contact us early and we’ll create a custom product for you to order as soon as the next shipment leaves the factory and we place our own restock order.

(Yes, postings in the category „Disturbing Dildo Deliveries“ are basically copy&pasted.
There is just nothing original to write about such a thing but many people are waiting
for toys of a specific manufacturer to come in, so it’s important we post these.)

WWII bomb disposal near YiffyToys

Today we had to evacuate for a World War II aerial bomb disposal.
This is the second time this happened to us.
Now we’re allowed back into the YiffyToys shop.
Everything went smoothly.

Sadly these things are still a very common occurence in Germany.
You’re lucky if one is found and disposed instead of them blowing up on their own.
Acid time delay fuses are just a bitch.
Usually they are found during construction work.

Yes, sometimes „disposal“ means these huge beasts have to be detonated in place.
That’s why such large parts of the city are evacuated with the red cross setting up camp in the trade show halls and everything.

Exotic Erotics prices lowered

As announced, we have finally lowered the prices of all imported toys due to the relaxed exchange rates between Euro and US-Dollar.
The last manufacturer we worked out way through was Exotic Erotics.

Note that there is also a delivery by Exotic Erotics currently on the way to restock many toys.

Zetacreations restocked, prices adjusted

The announced delivery of Dildos by Zetacreations (English / German) arrived.

The new stock is already available in our shop.
However 3 of 60 toys are still out of stock.

We have also adjusted the prices to match the EUR/USD exchange rate used in this order.
Many have been lowered by up to -4€. Some have been slightly raised by up to +1€.

New delivery by Exotic Erotics on it’s way

A new delivery of Dildos by Exotic Erotics (English / German) is on it’s way.
(While the last delivery is still in customs.)

We expect it to arrive in 10 business days (including customs), if USPS and DHL don’t have too much of a backlog of returned parcels from Christmas.
Then we just have to count, label and sort it for the new stock to be available in our shop (English Shop / German Shop). When that happend, we’ll report here again.
If you want to track this delivery, you can do so here, if you are eagerly awaiting some toy to be in stock again.

Custom Dildos:
For a few days now, it will be possible to order custom variation again. Just contact us via email, stating all the details like colour and firmnes. Then we’ll provide you with a custom product that can be ordered exactly 1 time via the regular ordering process. The only  difference is that it obviously takes longer to ship and we require it to be fully payed right away. Also for custom made products there is no 14 day return period.

Lower prices for FoxyRabbit

The EUR/USD exchange rate has stopped it’s free fall, that started in May 2021 and may have stabilized in the 1.05-1.07 EUR/USD range.
This allowed us to lower the prices for imported toys from FoxyRabbit

Back in mid-2021, it started it’s nose-dive at 1.22 Euro for every Dollar
While this does not seem like much, it translates to quite a difference for toys that cost 50, 80 or 200 Euro.
