2021 SquarePegToys Challenge

Hey SquarePeggers,

It’s time for a Second Annual SquarePegToys® Challenge. Originally created as a fun distraction during the lockdowns last April we quickly found it was a great way to build community in our little corner of the fetish world, and to give out some free toys too! This is a contest held entirely on Twitter.

Document your hole control skills by making a video of you shooting a SquarePeg toy out of your hole.

2 winners will be chosen each week based on one of the following criteria:

Overall Creativity, Distance, or Height.

To demonstrate distance or height, be sure to include something in your shot that can be used as reference.

Have fun with this and be safe! If you didn’t win one week you can retry again the next week with a new video.

 

Details and Rules:

  • Use one of our genuine SquarePegToys®
  • Be following @SquarePegToys on Twitter, and tag your video posting with #SquarePegToysChallenge  entries submitted by DM or from last year’s challenge do not qualify.
  • Must be at least 18 years old. Your participation is your acknowledgement that you are of legal age and will only play within your own known safety limits.
  • Open to the U.S.A. and all international locations we currently ship to.
  • Winners will be determined for each week beginning April 19th and running through May 9th, 2021, and be notified by retweet and DM via Twitter.
  • Prize is a $300 credit on the SquarePegToys® website good for 30 days, no cash value, unused balance of credit will be considered forfeit after that.

Major Disruption in Package Delivery

As many of you are experiencing, the winter storms that ravaged the country beginning the week of February 11th are having a lasting effect on the movement of packages.  Many of your orders that shipped from Feb 12th and onward are stuck in a nationwide backlog.

FedEx hubs were completely shut down for days, creating backlogs everywhere.  Now that the weather has cleared, hands are needed to get packages through the system and at many hubs the crew were stuck at home for many more days either due to snow/ice in areas without snow clearing equipment or without power.

These past two weeks have been an unprecedented one, so we ask for your patience while the nationwide log jam slowly begins to break and packages can flow again!

Orders to the UK

As a part of Brexit, effective January 1, 2021 the UK government has transferred the responsibility for collecting UK VAT from themselves onto the shipper for any orders originating outside the UK that are valued under £135.  SquarePeg will not be participating in VAT collection and filing at this time and ask that you source your smaller items directly from the UK retailers Regulation London and UberKinky.  On orders valued over £135, collection will still be handled by UK as they always have been, and as such we will continue to ship orders $197US and over.

Free Shipping through 2020

Just makes all our lives a little easier after a wild year.  The Free Shipping offer extends to Hawaii and Alaska too!

Select the free ground shipping option at checkout.  The 2day Air option is not free, but we reserve the right to upgrade any order to 2day air if FedEx® quotes us a good price for it!

Additionally, SquarePegToys® cares for you in a few very unique ways:

Look at the Shop@Home™ service if you want to compare or look at some toys before committing to purchase. This is an add-on fee and there are some restrictions, full rules of the program are here

Canadians can shop as if the exchange rate was one-to-one.  All prices are still in US dollars but you get an adjustment applied at checkout that takes off about what you would lose in exchange.  More about it here

Say hello to Steve

Latest in the Realistic range.  Girthy, with a strong curve for intense g-spot and prostate play.  In both full anatomical and harness based versions.

TheSlim

The Slim

Read about the origins of this very specific type of toy in the FAQs here.

Stubby

Stubby is Back

The Stubby was one of my Original 8 that started this all, and was my go to for simple stretch and prostate play.  It was out of commission for several years but now it’s back. Stubby

Slink Tickler

New Slink® : Tickler

The randomly spaced bumps are great for giving a sense of movement when playing with the Slink®, and when you find a sweet spot, the bumps are like little finger tips pushing on it.  Tickler

professor

Meet the Professor

First sculpted arm in a Silicone Toy line.  Full skin texture on the arm, with the hand smooth and solid for better control and smoother movement inside. At just under 5 pounds the heft makes it the closest to a real hand I’ve ever felt in a toy.  Makes for easy cleanup too. The Professor

Adapting to the Pandemic

May 6, 2020 update

Orders continue to ship out by next business day. With our reliance on US sourced materials and labor, and the fact we have preserved our in house manufacturing all these years places us in a strong position to weather times just like these. We continue to practice our physical distancing in both manufacturing and shipping so we’re able to take care of your toy needs without compromising our own well-being.

 

Mar 24th Update:

Shop@Home™ will be suspended until a time when freedom of movement is restored. I don’t want people feeling pressure to get returns back when they should be sheltering in place if ordered to do so.

 

March 18th, 2020

We find ourselves in unprecedented times and uncertainty seems to be the word of the day.  My thoughts have been turning to all of you I have met personally or known through email correspondence in my 23+ years of being a part of this uniquely individual and passionate community.  I have you all in my thoughts.

At the beginning of March I was still planning out travel for store visits and my MYOD workshops, looking forward to an exciting year connecting with many of you. How quickly things have changed.  Being in Portland, Oregon where things have suddenly ground to a halt, restaurants, gyms, bars and even my favorite coffee shops have all decided to close for the foreseeable future, I can sympathize with the feelings of disconnection that many of you are now experiencing or likely will be soon. As uncertainty and distancing grows, it’s important we all maintain connection somehow and be kind to each other.  

You can take comfort in knowing we are keeping ourselves safe while we continue to produce product and ship orders for you.

As far as SquarePegToys® goes and maintaining our own safety at work, we are a tight knit crew and already have our own individual responsibilities and separate work areas so maintaining social distance has already been a natural part of our daily pattern. Additionally, we have implemented new cleaning protocols for surfaces and mandatory hand washing upon entering the space. And because we need to keep the areas clean from outside contaminants, we already change clothes before entering the work areas.

Free Shipping

As more and more will likely find themselves unable to get out or travel and local stores may be forced to suspend operations at times, I’m waiving all ground shipping charges to orders within the lower 48 states until May 1st. Orders are still shipping out next business day.

Stay safe, play well, and be kind to each other,
Scott
