The last preparations of shipping the masters and molds from Furrystyle to us are underway.
We expect them to arrive no sooner then friday next week.
Probably much later.
Once things start you’ll find updates and be able to comment on it in the Furrystyle forum.
Feel free to post any wishes for new toys or feedback on what existing toys you liked/disliked in that forum!
We are also asking people with ideas (with or without 3d design skills) to participate in comming up with a way to get user submitted designs into production! Everyone’s oppinion is asked for!
And we have open positions for writers, 2d graphic artists and 3d designers! (Not a full job, just per hour or as a temp.)
After a lot of work the new website
is now online.
It no longer features a shop itself but instead lists dealers that have the toys in stock.
We added a forum for feedback and suggestions.
Especially suggestions about new or improved designs.
I lengthy forum posting explains the future of that site.
We are making great progress in preparing the equipment needed for reliable, production quality casting of dildos.
The molds and masters as well as a large, last shipment of produced dildos are expected to arrive in the next weeks.
Then we’ll have to inspect them, create new mother molds and start the long process of casting test runs.
The current and awaited stock of dildos should last more long enough to bridge that time.
The penultimate order from Furrystyle has just arrived.
Except for the Rover all the toys are in stock again.
A last shipment of toys will come later, shortly before the production molds, masters and some randomly colored toys from Furrystyle’s last stock are shipped.
Production of the first toys in the new facilities, in europe is planned to start in the first quarter of 2012.
The furrystyle.com -domain is now hosted on our web-servers (featuring a temporary page) and the iamges, shop-layout, CAD files,.. of Furrystyle will be transfered to us shortly.
The penultimate shipment of dildos from them is already in customs and will be picked up on Friday.
So our stock will be plenty to last for the transition.
First, early tests of our new production equipment show very good results.
In the early days there was only Zetacreations (who’s toys we now sell).
As shipping was expensive and customs sometimes difficult, people regularly organised groups-orders.
One private individual who was lucky enough to own a credit card would take the risk and do the order for the whole group.
Years later a new company showed up, called Furrystyle and with their appearance we decided that a European distributor was needed.
With stock of their own, cheap, local shipping and acceptance of the local payment methods.
This was how YiffyToys(tm) was born.
Now, many years later the former owners of Furrystyle decided to concentrate on the non-furry population and sell everything that makes up Furrystyle.
We stepped in and christmas came early this year.
In a few days the website, domain name, molds, and existing inventory will belong to YiffyToys.
What will happen now?
We do have enough stock of their toys and a large, last order is still produced in the US to ensure that we can continue to sell and ship their toys during the transition.
We are conducting tests, talks and preparations to ensure that these toys will be produced again in the same quality you have come to expect.
This will take time.
This weekend the domains and web-site will be transfered to us.
For reasons of privacy we will (of cause) not get the customer database but a newsletter will inform the existing customers about the change.
A large batch of toys is still being produced, so that our inventory is sufficient to last for the duration of this transition.
We stopped selling Furrystyle toys from our US shop and are shipping them from our own stock in Europe instead. (We do ship to the US+Canada from here and we do show prices in USD if desired.)
Shipping of the molds is already being prepared.
We have already set up the first casting and mold-making equipment.
We have also already conducted successful test-casts in production quality and will continue these tests. After we are content that we can repeatedly create the desired quality, colors and softness we will scale up the equipment to production scale.
