Inexpensive Ways To Fill Your Toybox At Home

Author: Raven Shadowborne © 1997


Not everyone can afford the toys sold in shops or by individuals who make them. With a bit of imagination and effort you can have yourself a wonderful toy box with many different items to create a multitude of different sensations, for less money. A list of some of the more common items is below. Use your imagination and you'll be surprised what good things you can do with the items around your house or found in local stores at less cost. but remember, always play safe! 

I have placed the items into categories, if you know of an item that is not listed here, please feel free to email me and I will add it. 


     rope (various kinds, weights, widths, and colors) different kinds provide different  sensations 
     silk scarves and neckties (careful of knots, they tend to slip) 
     carobiners and suspension harnesses (climbing supply stores) 
     Ace bandages 
     bun gee cords 
     dowel rods (canes and spreader bars) 
     weight belts

     thrift shops 
     yard sales 
     army/navy surplus shops 
     antique shops 
     Police supply 
     Dog collars and leashes (size can be used for neck or light bondage cuffs) 
     (NEVER use a dog collar as suspension cuffs. If you plan to do suspension in your play  then it is best to invest the money in a good set of suspension cuffs for both wrist and  ankle) 
     cages..remote electrical shock collars 
     horse and dog bit gags (at the veterinarian supplier) 
     silk scarves tied together at one end for a handle make a good sensory flogger, to add a bit  of sting, tie knots in the ends of each scarf 
     a length of rope, knotted in the middle and unraveled to the knot will produce a sting..tie  knots in the end of each section and it will produce a harsher sting 
     bicycle inner tubes..cut lengthwise 
     boot laces (leather, tie a bunch together at one end) 
     leather jump rope
