I am very happy with the quality and look of this fella :3 I was worried it was going to be too floppy but it's a perfect firmness. As the seller mentions there's a bit of a wait but they clearly communicated that and kept in touch :) I also loved the friggin awesome surprise squishy that was they slipped in, luv it!

Worst experience I have ever had on Etsy. The seller was extremely curt (bordering on rude) with responses and they never shipped the item or offered a refund. If something isn’t going to be shipped for over a month and the customer complains it’s a good idea to let them know and offer a refund. Or for starters just inform the person the item is not going to ship for an extended period and again ask if they want a refund.

A Pegasus once visited me in my dreams. He tried to enter via the window, but this ended in mishap as he is a giant horse bird and did not quite fit. Instead, he collided with the frame, his horn snapped off and he flew away in shock. I picked up the forgotten horn and held its luminous beauty in my fingers, my eyes burning from the intensity. Then the horn began to glow before ascending and smacking itself firmly to the middle of my forehead. My hands became hooves, my shoulders sprouted wings, and my body began to rise- I woke to find there was no horn, but rather this perfect Somnhas. It's glittery flawless surface barely containing all the pleasures it had to share. In all honesty it put poor Pegasus' horn to shame. (Warning: Attaching toy to head does not turn one into Pegasus, don't jump from window in flight attempt.)

Best purchase I've made in a long time. It's even prettier in person, the pour is gorgeous. It also arrived just in time for my area's covid-19 quarantine. Social distancing is much more tolerable when you have something as satisfying as this to keep you company. I'll definitely be back for more in the future. Thanks Sheep!

Wow! Such an amazing toy!!! It’s absolutely stunning, and the squish is wonderful. It was packaged very well, and arrived quickly. The shape itself offers a wonderful experience. Very happy.

The devil is one of my new favorite squishies. All of the little monster heads have so many cool details and are so fun to fidget with. This red/black/blue color combo is bright but sinister and the shimmery candy red color is super sexy.

Citrus skull is so lovely. Looks like a mango. The orangey pink is very shimmery and captivating. I love the size and shape for a stress ball. Small enough for a palm squish but big enough to keep your hands busy. Included in my order was a shimmery purple little snowman squishy and an organza storage bag! Thanks so much DA!

updating my review since it's finally here! It's been over a month and even though I wasn't given updates I understand the situation (through what I've read anyway), so it's not an issue. I'm *so* happy to finally have this toy though! I knew that I needed it as soon as I saw it's listing and now that it's finally in my hands i am so :D The pretty bag it came in and the two little squishes were also wonderful surprises. I'm in love,, I do hope things get better for Sheep soon! Perhaps I'll be back sometime.
All of my adult toys, critters, and stress relievers are hand-sculpted and hand-cast by one person - me. I strive for organic designs that flow with the body for comfort and pleasure, followed by an appeal to fantasy in shape, and an extraordinary exploration of color fusions. All of my products are cast in platinum cured silicone from a provider that has tested for safety in prolonged mucous membrane application. My color choices and marbles are all pieces I put a lot of thought and consideration into and I am proud of their positive impact on my synesthesia.
I generally do not apply personal characters to representational toys for the sake of allowing my customers to associate any model with anything of their choosing. Personally I have teratophilia and to me everything is a monster or alien or demon or...you get the picture.
Do keep in mind that as a one person operation, every aspect of this is run solely by me.
Accepted payment methods
Returns & exchanges
If you have questions, concerns, or a need for partial refund, you must get in contact with me.
Shipping is generally within 1-3 weeks for stock items. A reminder that I am a walking chronic illness, I fall behind, and thus the generous shipping times are shown to cover this. If there are delays your first thing should be to contact me. Cases opened on orders will now only receive a refund and a ban from further purchasing.
Shipping itself is priority in the US and takes 2-3 days generally.
I am unable to ship internationally for the time being.
When international is re-opened, I cannot ship to Russia or Mexico.

Frequently asked questions
Are you open for custom orders?
Made-to-Order toys are sometimes available at damnaverage.com. I do not do full customs with color or sculpts.
Is there a list for all DamnAverage toys?
For a current list, see: https://damnaverage.com/pages/catalogue
For a full list including all discontinued models, see: https://damnaverage.com/blogs/news/catalogue
How do I use the (x)?
Jokingly asked about many of my critters. They are stress relievers and are obviously not intended to go into any orifice of your body.
Are items shipped discreetly?
Yes! All items are shipped in a plain white or brown box. The label has a pseudonym and PO Box for a return address. It looks like a package from a friend, but if you need to disguise anything from prying roommates I highly recommend picking up critters or grab bags with your order (available at damnaverage.com )
Why is there no First Class International?
For the whole of 2019, USPS has not allowed First Class International shipping to be completed on their site, which I use. Due to a number of reasons I refuse to deal with the front desk at my post office for shipping.
WASH YOUR ITEM(S) FIRST.
Wash after use, allow to air dry or pat dry, do not put away wet.
-Boil toys/critters for 10 minutes, do not let them touch the side of the pot as the heat may be high enough to damage them.
-For a more industrial clean, use a bleach solution (follow instructions on bleach). This kills mold if, for example, you leave snails in your shower for extended periods. Do NOT boil and bleach simultaneously.
-Store upright if possible, silicone will retain impressions or folds (some impressions lessen via rubbing). Can be stored next to other platinum silicone, but recommended you store all items in individual bags. Do not store with other materials (please don't buy jelly or pvc anyway as they are bad for your health).
Can you teach me to make toys?
Sorry, no. Nothing personal. There are a myriad of free tutorials available from the amazing professionals at Smooth-On and I highly recommend checking them out for any of your molding and casting questions.
My available firmnesses are:
OO30 - comparable to fresh gummy candy although bouncier
OO50 - comparable to slightly stale gummy candy although bouncier
~8a - firmer than gummy things, softer than erect tissue and very bendy
10a - comparable squeeze to erect tissue but much bendier
Can you sponsor my review/video?
I am not sponsoring reviews at this time for many of the same reasons I am uncomfortable attempting wholesale. Sorry.
