Sextoy.com generously let me review the For Your Nymphomation XL Adult Toybox, which I have had my eye on for -months-. Prior to getting this item, my toys were all over the place, as is true of many reviewers and toy lovers. I had most in a drawer of a small bureau in my bedroom, or in the headboard cubbies. When I first looked over the different storage options I had thought that the XL Toybox was going to be more than enough, and that I would likely never amass enough items that I actually like/use to warrant needing the Adult Toychest. Well now that my collection includes 3 large electric vibes and bdsm items…..it’s quite possible that I could use up most or all of the space in that Toychest if I also put in my leather restraint gear. However, if I were to do that, I likely would have a hard time lifting that darn thing or carting it anywhere of distance. As it is, I have the Toybox filled and it’s quite heavy (I’m sure thanks in part to the Pure Wand).

I’m way impressed. It’s very sturdy. The sides/top/bottom are all firm; even when empty it retains its shape. This means that unlike the malleable toy bags, there will be no weird lumpiness when it’s all zipped up. The lock is good quality for just a skeleton-key sort. You could also purchase a small combination lock if you’re concerned about losing the keys or you want better security.

When I got this item, I asked Vera of FYN to please include the 3-pack of mesh pockets as well (I paid a few dollars extra for these). I’m very very glad I did so! Any toy that is silicone or rubber/jelly, that is shiny (as opposed to a powder/satin finish) is going to “stick” to the PVC pouches that are standard – meaning putting the toys in, especially if it’s a tight fit, will be a tad difficult. Getting the extra pouches allowed me better options. I also noticed that the mesh pouches allow for more girth. When comparing a PVC and mesh that are nearly identical in size (mesh is 1/4″ longer) I was able to easily zipper it up with the Pleasure Tops and the Bnaughty (in its fabric bag), whereas I was barely able to do the same with the PVC pouch.

This is a photo of the inside, from the site, showing all the PVC pouches that are included.

This is my case. It was a bit of a puzzle and squeeze getting all the pouches onto the Velcro strips, but I did it! Well, one of the PVC’s is inside the mesh bag there on the right, I put my glass dildo in it so that it wouldn’t get banged by the heavy Pure Wand and possibly get chipped.

This is to give a better visual reference of the case size

The sizes of the pouches are as follows: (site gives different measurements slightly, but I used my ruler!)

PVC Pouches Included:

  • 8.5″ x 6.5″
  • 8.5″ x 4.25″
  • 5.5″ x 3.75″ (toy cleaners and samples)
  • 5.25″ x 2.75″ (lube)
  • 2.5″ x 4.25″ (batteries)
  • 2.5″ x 2.5″  (condoms)

3-pack of Mesh Pouches:

  • 9″ x 5.5″
  • 9″ x 4.25″
  • 11.5″ x 6″

The PVC pouches are necessary for any item like lube, cleaners, etc that could possibly leak. I also think their condom pouch is necessary to avoid excess wear and tear to the foil pouch, which could happen if they were just stored in a mesh pouch.

There’s really only one known toy that won’t fit in this case, and that’s the Fleshlight. FYN created the Big Foot with the Fleshlight in mind, though.

    You did a nice job organizing. I am not fond of how this looks myself but I can see how it can be useful. Can you take the bags out? Like if lube spilled and you needed to clean one, is it removable?

    ~ Yep, easily removable. My layout is different from the first photo because I was able to move them around on the Velcro strips. Every pouch is like that. The mesh pouches are, I think, machine washable but I’ll need to check on that. Honestly as far as looks is concerned….everything is in view when I have it open. I don’t have to hunt for anything, I can see it all laid out before me. Unlike other bags I’ve owned in which toys are just in the bag, jumbled together.

    Wow. I’m always impressed when I read reviews of FYN products. They don’t shine to me, until reviewed well. Thanks!!
