so back up and running again

so back up and running again

running being the operative word

last week there were about 60 orders in the book now below 50

its been a manic couple of months with everything that can go wrong going wrong again

but I am back in the saddle and making stuff and getting it out there as you may have noticed by the pictures I have been posting

still along way to go to get the list where I want it

I have had my eye right off the ball with everything work wise

to the point so far this month Impact toys has had ZERO orders as I type this
my longest blank run ever

but then again I have hardly been here posting anything

So I really am focused on getting the list down there are still a few lose end to tie up on the house (like replacing all the windows etc) but we have working (mainly) electrics now and heating and hot water and have found most of the stuff (the box of made items still remains elusive) my 2 week downtime on the work from due to the move turned into more like 6 weeks 

but I am focused on in the next 6 weeks or so clearing most of the list as you can see from this picture I have just about every flogger on order cut ready for the handles to be plaited and everything to be put together

so full steam ahead I am to do at least one order a day (sometimes more sometimes less if its a big one)

what I need now is cashflow as always I have a load of ordering to do and lots and lots of post to pay for

so here is the deal

from now until the end of the month on all custom orders (ready to ship / off the shelf are excluded from this)

use code

for 35% off your basket of qualifying items

if you want to place a larger order

will give 40% off any order placed over £200

this offer will only last until midnight UK time 31st July 2017

only available on

and dont forget is open too for all the general kinky sexy stuff

Orderbook update

So I started to make good headway on the order book after Dad’s death the legal battel etc and then when that was all over I think it hit me…. I was so pre occupied with what had to be sorted out I didnt have time to grieve


and yep it hit like a hammer


the last couple of weeks I have been selfish self absorbed and just down right lazy  ….  well apart from packing up the house


so the end of november we move house forced sale we just cant afford to stay here with dad gone

which means relocating the workshop etc

To be fair it couldnt be a worse time of year to do it with Xmas just round the corner and all the disruption that causes


Hopefully the move will go smoothly and I wont have too much down time however there is sure to be some


the workbook list has taken a bit of a slump the last couple of weeks  and frankly 2016 can do one its been a terrible year


hopefully the change of scenery and purpose built workshop will re invigorate me


the workbook is still open for orders the off the shelf section is stocked however I wont be making any more off the shelf stock until the workbook is caught up a bit


I thank all of my very patient customers

Be assured I am working through the list and your good will be shipped as soon as possible

I probably have about a week or 2 to work here before I have to seriously think about packing up


the workbook wait time is back up to the 14 week mark

Waiting list update just to bring it to the top of the blog

So as you may know by now my life has been a little topsy turvey for the last few months which has affected the waiting list


I am now back to full speed and rest assured everyone who has been waiting on items will get them In fact I went and did a big leather suede and fur shop today to make sure everything in in ready

I am currently working on some orders that are well overdue but am aiming to make 5-10 items a week to clear these up

the order book currently has 57 orders in it with 83 items to be made  some of these items go back to the start of the year I am sad to say  but I am working through them very fast now  and am hoping to catch up to the  12-14 weeks by the end of this month


New Orders from this date 11/07/2016

I am trying to bring the waiting list down  so I shall be aiming for roughly a 12 week delivery from today

This is providing that noting major happens in my life  ( about time I had a break to be fair)

Please note that all delivery times are only approximations and not guarauntees as per out terms and conditions


Off the shelf

Some people seem to be confused that custom order work is off the shelf because they pick “standard” colours and the item shows in stock  ..  the instock tag allows me to control what I can and cannot make due to supply problems, Basically its pretty somple if you pick your colours and options its a custom item … I dont keep the 3 million colour combinations in stock sorry to disapoint anyone

THE ONLY SECTION on the website that is not custom order os the off the shelf /ready to ship page

This is the only page that the waiting time does not apply, if you order from the custom order section something that is identically in the off the shelf note that someone can step in and take the item from the off the shelf section and you will have to wait for your item in the normal queue or not  (yes even if it is all black)  Please dont ask me to queue jump you or make it quickly because I cannot do it at the minute

off the shelf/ ready to ship/ready made Vs custom orders

Ok there seems to be some growing confusion with people ordering things off the site thinking they are off the shelf items.


Basically I just want to clarify some things


95% of what is on this website is CUSTOM order I.E. you pick your colours you pick your embellishments you pay for your order (or dont if you want to pay nearer the time of it being made)


The ONLY items that are ready for immediate shipping not custom are in the READY TO SHIP section of the website


Any Item ordered from any other section goes into the custom order work book

the waiting list on custom orders at the time of writing this is 8-10 weeks there are currenty 38 orders in my workbook of some 50 odd items to be made


Please be assured all items are completed in the order they come in no one is forgotten however with humans there are always things that crop up such as illness etc .. the APPROXIMATE waiting time also factors in me having a few days off and making some stock items for the off the shelf section and for any markets I may attend over the coming months


Kind regards

50 Shades of Grey …..



Well the movie is out and yes I have seen it

I have not read the books. I don’t think the movie was half bad myself.


But ..


I am not going to jump on the 50 shades hype band wagon and here is why –


The books (from what I have heard from people who have read them) are shockingly written and paint a very bad picture of BDsM relationships.


A lot of the 50 shades branded merchandise is in my opinion badly made and aimed at people who know no better with massive mark ups because of film rights.


A lot of the toys in the film were cheap and nasty  (there were a few quality pieces though) certainly not the play room of a Billionaire in my opinion


If you want a 50 shades themed toy we can make you one without having them specifically listed on the site


I just think it is a lot of hype and wind as is usual for Hollywood


and that’s about all I wanted to say in this post


ciao for now

so there have been some changes round here

here are 2 writings that we put up recently on fetlife …. sad news but not the end of the story … so this is how it is for the near future at least …

my announcement …

so its been a tough year

Very very tough

but I’m still here (much to the disappointment of some)
and I am not going anywhere fast

This year has been rough starting with all the hassle of me doing what I thought was the right thing.. (I still think it was) and all the backlash from that.. almost cost me everything including my mind.

This has had a knock on effect mega stress in my relationship with the dragon which has all fallen apart

BUT I am still here

Impact-toys has had its creations slashed to what I make now

but I am still here

The year isnt over yet but I am so looking forward to closing this one off

the last week has been heart breakingly rough

Its by no means the end once I am a bit more settled I will start making floggers again probably not on the scale Az was doing but ill make a few here and there for sets etc

I am going to start what I have been saying for ages and play with some Kip whips

so onwards and upwards

I would like to thank everyone for their support over the last year its been rough but made bearable by the support of others

officially the order book close yesterday for christmas orders

but I am going to extend it another week as I havent really been being attentive to the business this last week

so 9th Nov order book closes for pre christmas whips and devil tails and anything on the site

you can still use SANTA1 on on matched pairs of whips for a whopping discount

you can still use GET10 on for 10% off your basket

if you cant decide what to get that special someone then why not get them some gift vouchers and let them decide they are available on both sites

I would like to once again thank everyone for their support over the last year
Especially Az (the dragon) who without her I would have probably lost my mind totally and the business

Love and Light



the dragons writing


To my friends, please read.

Today, Daz and I came to the agreement that I shall no longer be involved with My remaining commitment is to ensure that existing custom orders for floggers and dragons are fulfilled, and this shall be done in a timely manner as close as possible to the quoted waiting times. All Christmas orders will be sent out in time to go under the tree.

The remaining ‘Ready To Ship‘ items that are already made and ready for posting are still available on the website but no more floggers and dragons will be made for this purpose. We hope that these remaining items find new homes with those who will appreciate them – there is a little bit of our heart in each of them.

It has been a very difficult year for both of us and sadly this has taken it’s toll on our personal and professional relationship. After removing my collar in July, we continued to work together and maintain a friendship (and a certain romance) but we have decided that it is now better for both of us to go our separate ways.

As Daz says on the @Edgeplay_co_uk profile – a huge thank you to everyone who has supported us in this venture and as friends, there have been some wonderful times and those of you who have our toys, please cherish them 🙂

There is great sadness and grief here for something that was so important to both of us, and it is with love that I wish him the best for the future.

– Az


chokes me to read them now … but we go on

Az is finishing off her work book and may make a few on offs when she knows what materials she has left over

and I will probably still make the odd flogger or 2 in the future


I have to get my head around tidying up the website  to take out the irrelevant sections, but for now I am concentrating on the plaiting and getting the workbook as small as possible so bear with me


its been a great couple of years


And we  would like to thank everyone that has supported us


we hope your toys bring you many years of pleasure


not the end 😉

Check Our Our New Checkout!


Ahem! Anyway…

As part of our ongoing mission to improve the user friendliness of our sites, we’ve introduced a new payment option on Impact-Toys.

It is now possible to pay by credit or debit card without being taken off to PayPal, which we understand can be a confusing experience for those unfamiliar with PayPal or who don’t have a PayPal account.

We have three payment options:

Card Payments (NEW!)

What you see: a seamless checkout experience that looks and feels just like the rest of Impact-Toys. No abrupt graphical changes, no wizzing off to PayPal or having to scrabble around with Internet Banking. User friendly and secure!

How it works: card details are submitted via a fully PCI compliant checkout and are sent along to Stripe, one of our secure payment gateways. Everything is fully covered by SSL security certificates and 100% legal, and we don’t see or handle any of your payment details. None of your payment details are collected or stored by our server, giving you peace of mind.

pay by card


What you see: once you have entered your shipping and billing address and checked your order is ready to go, you are taken off-site to PayPal where you have the option to log into your PayPal account (if you have one) or to pay by credit/debit card. You will then be returned to our site where you will get an order confirmation. Great for those who regularly use PayPal for their on-line shopping or for those who prefer to pay by card.

How it works: PayPal are a fully secure and PCI compliant payment gateway. With a great reputation worldwide, PayPal is a user friendly and highly trusted solution to taking payments online. As with our main card payment option, we do not see or handle any of your payment details and nothing is stored on our server. The only details we handle are those necessary to complete your order and send it out to you.

pay by paypal

Direct Bank Transfer

What you see: when you checkout via our Direct Bank Transfer option, we take your shipping details and then give you our bank account details. Perfect for those who like to use internet/mobile banking.

How it works: we do not take any payment details from you and you don’t have to worry about online security. Just take down our bank details and then choose how you wish to pay – over the counter at your bank, or by your trusted online or mobile banking provider.

bank transfer

Sound good?

We think so! Let us know what you think in the comments or by e-mail ( Any thoughts on other changes you’d like to see?

Please note: we plan to roll out our new card payment option across our other sites soon, but it is currently only available on Impact-Toys. You can still pay by bank transfer and PayPal (including card payments for those without a PayPal account) on Edgeplay.

(I’ll probably get punished for that awful pun in the title but it was so worth it…)
