Tunti Illuminating Boudoir Toybox provided for review by Tunti Enterprises
Tabu Toys and Tunti answered our plea for a special case to hold our collection of sex toys, and we are really appreciative of both, but I have to admit the Tunti Illuminating Boudoir Toybox (referred to from now on as Tunti Toybox) is much fancier, as the name suggests. As one would expect, it’s also significantly more expensive.
It feels and looks pretty durable, although it arrived with a dent in it. (I’m not suspicious of Tunti sending us an already dented box, by the way.) It seems more like a camera case or a lock box than a make-up bag, which is what some other cases I’ve seen online resemble. This makes the Tunti Toybox much more gender neutral, too, if that matters to you. The interior is 12 x 10 x 5, so it can fit virtually everything you need inside it. The only must-haves that I couldn’t make room for were the Hitachi Magic Wand and the Leather and Chrome Crop.
The inside is lined with a dark gray, soft yet firm foam, which the website claims to be color-fast and easy to clean. The top lid of the case is lined with crushed purple velvet and this adds a very slight touch of colour and sensuality to otherwise austere case.
My favourite aspect of the Tunti case is the fact that you can continually rearrange it according to your needs – the dividers are adjustable so you’re not stuck with any particular size. I despise it when a company predetermines the size for an organizing tool or accessory (such as a wallet) and then I’m stuck with something that suits my needs to a limited degree. There are four dividers and one center pink plexiglas divider. The pink plexiglas divider is not adjustable, which can be mildly annoying, but it certainly helps to keep toys and lube and batteries in their designated “homes”. And the plexiglas is not attached so you can remove it completely. There two mesh pockets that assist to this end as well.
The four LED two AA battery powered lights are certainly functional in the sense that you don’t have to find and turn on a lamp or light switch in the dark to find your condoms, lube, or vibrator. Thus, if you are not alone and do not wish to expose yourself to bright lights, then this feature is really helpful and comforting. It’s not a selling point for me personally, but I can see the value in it. Sometimes those overhead lights are simply too much.
The Tunti Toybox can be locked and it comes with two keys, so this is an added layer of privacy. I say ‘added’ because the box itself does not scream SEX TOYS AND OTHER SEXY STUFF OH YEAH at whoever may come across the box. It could be a box you keep important papers in or mementos from a previous relationship you still want but don’t want to look at or your DVD collection of Full House which you’re too embarrassed to keep with your other DVDs in the living room… With the Tunti Toybox, you’re covered.
Another excellent characteristic of the Tunti Toybox is that it fits nicely under the bed. Space conservationists rejoice!
Unfortunately, you have to part with quite a lot of cash to get yourself a Tunti Toybox, and I am not one to advocate buying something you cannot afford. If you cannot imagine spending nearly $100 on a case for your toys, no matter how special it is, then by all means try a different case.* If you can afford to splurge on a case for your toys, condoms, lube, and so on, then I think the Tunti Illuminating Boudoir Toybox is your best bet. If you take care of it, I’m sure it will last a long time and in a way pay for itself. I mean, these are your tools for sexual satisfaction and exploration, NOT your tampons or hair ties or belt buckles or watches or whatever the fuck. Be nice to yourself. Be nice to your toys.
Man, Mimi wrote one thorough review there. I really don’t feel like I have to say much to give you guys and gals a good idea of what you’re getting into with the Tunti Toybox.
I only have two things I would like to add about this product; One positive and one negative.
Because of the sturdy design, the Tunti Toybox could easily double as a personal defense item if it needed too. If you bash somebody with this thing, they are gonna feel it.
I’m not an electrician but it seems to me that there must be a better way to power those lights. They look like small LEDs but they are powered by two AAs in a somewhat obtrusive location. Would some watch batteries in a more streamlined location not work just as well?
