    WELCOME TO HELL

    A friend wants to order some items from Toyhell but wants some feedback before

    So anything bad about them or is a good store? service? packaging & inserts?


    Thanks!

    Here's the thing about toyhell: very, VERY, sloooooow.

    My stuff has always gotten to my doorstep but be prepared to wait at least a month. The longest I waited was nearly 3 months.

    But again: my stuff DID get to me every time.

    they're good, but yes. slow. and the site is odd. needs a redesign badly. seems stuck in 1995, and looks like it belongs on tripod.

    but then again, their bad design turns away a lot of customers, which results in them having stuff other sites sold out of long ago, and they sit on it for so long that the prices can get incredibly low. they can be a treasure trove of wonderful things because of this.

    To say the website is impossible to navigate would be an understatement.

    Broken links abound, nothing remotely cohesive.

    Different pages of the same products, but with two distinct prices and quotes about availability.

    An ungodly amount of "404 Not Found" pages (the "ORDER" page should not come up a 404 on a store website)

    It's tempting for sure, but I'm not sure what I can even navigate to and find :p

    ...I guess that site is living up to it's name. I had no clue what the hell I was looking at trying to get around this place...all the colors and flashing lights and pointlessly naked anime chick screenshots...what the hell were they smoking when they made that place :lol

    So in the end, they are reliable but slow as "hell"?

    I've had a couple of things from him, no complaints about any aspect of his service, with the caveat that you do have to wait.

    There's some stuff about why/how long etc. on this page:

    ORDER

    I checked them out again after reading this thread yesterday.
    There are 1 or two things on the site that looked tempting.
    and we all know temptation leads to hell...
    (just didn't think of it as being there.)

    and i constantly got 404's for the order page.
    someone should email them and say- your products- neat.
    your website-sucks.

    lol.
