For battery operated toys: We inspect every item before it is shipped out. Battery-operated items are tested and only shipped if they are in working order. However, if a battery-operated item fails to work within 60 days from date of purchase, we will gladly replace it or exchange it for a different item. When returning a defective item in person, please bring your receipt into the shop, make sure your toy is clean and include all the original packaging (or as much of it as you have).
For rechargeable toys: All rechargeable toys have at least a one year warranty. If your rechargeable toy is not charging or operating correctly, email us to let us know what the issue is.

When your new toy arrives be sure to read any included material and save your receipts so you can take advantage of manufacturer's warranties. Ask us if you have questions about a specific toy.
When returning via USPS: If returning an item through the mail, you must contact us before returning that item. We cannot accept returns on items that have been damaged by the customer or after delivery (meaning items that arrive fine but then are cracked, ripped, broken or otherwise physically damaged while in your possession). If there is visible damage on a product that is returned for being defective, we will not be able to accept it. Also we cannot and will not accept any returns that arrive back in our store in an un-clean manner. Those items will be disposed of and no exchange or refund will be made. Please to not endanger the health of our staff by sending us back un-clean toys.

We will cancel any orders where we cannot verify the billing address or if it appears fraudulent.

You have two choices when checking out for domestic orders: USPS Priority Mail or In-Store Pick up.
USPS Priority Mail
All orders are shipped out as soon as possible, usually within two - three business days via USPS Priority Mail, but please allow up to eight business days for your order to arrive. While we make every effort to insure that all items on the website are in stock, from time to time an item that you ordered may be temporarily unavailable. If that is the case, we will notify you via e-mail as soon as possible and you will have an opportunity to change or cancel your order. We are real people, not robots so we appreciate your patience with us especially around extra busy times like the holidays (trust us, you'll appreciate the fact that we are real people should you ever need our help!). Please know that we pride ourselves on working very hard to process orders quickly and make you as happy as we can!
USPS will return packages that are unclaimed. If a package is returned to us (including packages that are unclaimed at the post office, refused or have a delivery address that was incomplete as given to us by the customer) and the customer requests that we reship it, the customer is charged for the reshipping, even if they have selected free shipping on the original order. If a customer decides that they do not want their order shipped again, it can be picked up at the shop or the order can be refunded (minus shipping charges and a 20% restocking fee).
We ship all our packages discreetly in plain brown or USPS Priority Mail boxes. Sometimes we do use recycled boxes but they are from non-adult related companies. The return address used is ETB/TE. The boxes never indicate what is inside or what type of business we are. Below is an example of what an order looks like.
In-Store Pick up
You can select this option to pick your order up in our Chicago shop during regular business hours. We'll pack your order and let you know when it is ready for pick up via email. Please allow 24 hours+ for your order to be ready. If you are in a hurry, call us at 773-271-1219 and we'll see if we can get your order ready faster.
We'll email you two additional times to remind you to pick up your order if it is not picked up within a week. After the third email, if we have not heard from you, we will cancel your order and refund you minus a 15% restocking fee.
Please note the free shipping for orders $100 and above only applies to orders being shipped within the US. These orders will be shipped via USPS Priority Mail. All orders with a value of $200 or more require a signature upon delivery. Orders of $350 or more may require a photo id and signature for delivery. This is to protect both the customer and us.
If you select the FREE SHIPPING option and something is out of stock on your order, you will be given the option of having your whole order shipped together for free or having it broken up for an additional $5.50 fee.
When making a claim on your order: If you need to make any claims regarding items not being received or received incorrectly, it must be in a timely manner. For items that arrive damaged or are incorrect please notify us immediately upon package arrival. All claims regarding incorrect items must be make within 48 hours of the tracked delivery time.
If you do not receive your order: For domestic packages not received by the customer, we can only process claims within 30 days of the date you placed your order. If a claim is made to us after 30 days we are unable to replace the item/s. Additionally, if your package is marked DELIVERED by the post office but you did not receive it, we are unable to offer you any refund but depending on the circumstance we may be able to replace it. Domestic packages will not be considered missing until at least 20 non-holiday weekdays have passed since the item shipped. The postal service is pretty great, but sometimes things go awry and take longer than expected.
