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

Holiday shipping offer, and what distinguishes us from all the others

SquarePegToys® is a unique force in the toy industry.    Scott has always believed in treating you the way he would want to be treated and has built his business around one that remains unique in the industry.  With a best price everyday philosophy and strong focus on quality and service we can get you the toys you want, when you want them, so you don’t wait, and you don’t overpay because you missed a sale.

We value your business and so have invested heavily in inventory so that we can ship 99% of orders the same day if placed by 11am Eastern / 8am Pacific.

And even if your order is delayed a day, we will most always upgrade the shipping to still meet the delivery day you were quoted. Ask around, I think you’ll find a lot of happy SquarePeggers™ out there.

 

 

For the Holidays this year, here’s what you can expect:

Free FedEx® shipping on all orders placed until the end of the year
that ship within the 50 United States.

Get your order in by 3pm Eastern / 12pm Pacific* Friday Dec 20th
and we’ll take care of getting it to you by the 24th.

Yes, that means for any orders placed up to the deadline on the 20th!
Shipping will be authorized to upgrade all toy orders to arrive by Dec 24th

 

 

International Fans:  Shipping rates are even lower now, use the cart to get an easy rate quote before placing an order. Plus Canadians can take advantage of my “currency adjustment” which effectively removes the exchange rate.

Current Countries we are able to ship to are:

Australia, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Japan, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, South Africa, South Korea, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.

 

*Normal daily cutoff for same day shipping remains 11am Eastern / 8am Pacific

SquarePegToys® efface les différences de prix pour ses fans du Canada.

Mis à jour le 16 Sept, 2019

Le montant que vous voyez est à peu près le prix en dollars Canadiens que vous payez*.

Il n’y a déjà pas de frais d’impôt sur nos produits avec le NAFTA, et maintenant on vous récompense le TPS en plus! (la taxe provinciale reste à vous) Puisqu’on est basé en Oregon, un état sans taxe de vente, on vous donne le même que vos voisins au Sud.

Comment marche-t-il?

Tout simplement, on utilise un moyen du taux d’échange à fin de réduire le montant en dollars US de votre commande. Ce numéro peut changer en tout temps et ne correspondra pas au taux d’échange du jour, mais, on vous donne le choix en vous montrant la baisse de prix avant que la commande s’achève. Vous serez toujours obliger de payer aux Douanes Canadiennes le TPS/TVQ /HST en tout, mais le 5% TPS vous aurait déjà été récompensé dans le « Currency Adjustment ».

*A noter: Vous êtes responsable des frais d’échange qui peut être imposés par votre institution financière. Ce prix d’ajustement n’est pas aucunement lié au taux d’échange actuel.  

SquarePegToys® levels the playing field for Canadian customers

Please Note Updated Terms: Sept 16, 2019

What you see on the order is about what you pay in Canadian dollars*.

There are never any duties for our products under NAFTA, and now we’ll even compensate you for your GST too! Because we’re headquartered in Oregon where there is no sales tax, we’re simply extending the no sales tax concept northward. Provincial sales tax will still be up to you if you live where there is one. Adjustment is calculated on value of merchandise only.

The Details

We use an average exchange rate to calculate the adjustment for how many US dollars to actually charge to your card. The rate can change at any time and likely won’t match the current day’s rate, but the adjustment appears automatically on your order at checkout so you have time to decide before you commit to the purchase.  When your order arrives, you will still need to pay all of the GST/HST Canadian Customs will charge you, but the 5% GST has already been covered in the “Currency Adjustment”.

*Note: your bank may still charge you a fee for making a foreign currency purchase but that is not under our control and not covered here. This is also a courtesy adjustment so isn’t tied in to the actual exchange rates of the day.  

Mega Sized Leos Added to Lineup

Adding to the collection of Leos are 2 thicker ones for a bigger stretch, and 2 longer ones for playing in the Sigmoid flexure. See them all on the Leo page.

SwapIT!™ Service goes live

100% Platinum Grade silicone can be safely sterilized in an autoclave without damage, so why not get rid of toys you don’t use anymore and put that money towards new ones, or, do an even swap with someone else for a toy you want? You don’t have to go through us, but using SquarePegToys® SwapIT!™ service ensures the toys you receive have gone through the same 2-step sterilization process that hospitals use, and you keep your address private by having us act as your middleman. Yet one more way SquarePegToys® shows that it cares about your health and well-being and not just your wallet.

New S-Series

SquarePegToys® is rolling out a new sizing convention to help you choose the right sized toy.  Small, Medium, Large, doesn’t really tell you much when trying to get a plug or toy that’s right for you.  Blunt™ and Happy Hours are the first to roll out with this, and look for more toys to be added over time.  And be sure to check out the sizing charts for more insight into what toy might be right for you.

Two New Big Plugs

You all asked for it, new bigger versions of both the Happy Hour and Blunt™ Plugs:  Monster Happy Hour and XL Blunt.   (btw XL Happy Hour is almost complete)
