What’s Wrong with “Clone a Willy” kits?
I know that some people disagree with me on this but I think that “Clone a Willy” kits have their place.
Yes, they are fairly expensive and you can really only expect to get 1 toy out of the kit.
But… I don’t think that’s awful when it’s seen in a greater context.
A “Clone a Willy” kit is designed to let you simply and quickly make a copy of a person’s… er… “willy”. It is completely self contained and the only things you have to add are water and a “model”.
The main parts in each kit are an alginate powder and a platinum cure silicone. The tube can act as a mold shell and some even come with a little vibe. The colors are a little limited, but we’re going for convenience here not art.
And maybe that’s the biggest advantage of a Clone a Willy kit – it’s super convenient and the money invested is relatively low.
And that’s where these kits come into play. For less than $50 you can try out silicone casting and see if it is something that you want to explore further. Of course, if you really enjoy it, then you can invest in the equipment needed to go into larger scale production,
There’s nothing that says you have to use the “Clone a Willy” kit on a willy!
Do you have an idea for a toy that you just want to see in silicone and be able to play with it safely? You could sculpt something original out of clay or Sculpey and use that as your model.
Personally, I think that “Clone a Willy” kits have their place for folks who are still trying to decide whether making sex toys is something that they want to invest in. The costs of a full production set up rack up fast and will be near $500 by the time you are finished.
So, for less than $50, this is a great option for testing out the waters.
Until next time…
