Blow Up Dolls – Buyer’s Guide and Reviews for Kinky Balloons

by Robyn

The minute you type “sex doll” into a browser or Amazon (aside from deleting your search history immediately afterward) you’ll have a galactic-sized avalanche of hits ranging from Onaholes to human-sized silicone figures (soulless eyes included at no extra charge).

But…

When you change it to “inflatable dolls”, the computer has a digital seizure or a frantic, confused fit and throws a random mix of results onto the screen. 

The internet just can’t seem to make up its mind about what an inflatable doll is … or businesses are just being assholes with their Google keyword searches.

You will find the following…

AIR DANCERS – The wiggling, scary-ass clowns that sit in front of car dealerships distracting drivers into accidents.

SILICONE DOLLS – Does not inflate AT ALL, the price difference is astronomical.

INFLATABLE SEX DOLLS – Our focus today – inflatable humanoids, good for gag gifts or low-cost masturbation devices.

INFLATABLE DOLL MATERIALS


You have two (sometimes three) to choose from:

  • VINYL – Very durable but has seams and creases
  • LATEX – No creases, softer, but can tear easily, some people have latex allergies
  • TPR or ABS – Accessories or extra pieces can be made from these

CUSTOMIZATION


Because of their inexpensive nature, it’s easy to print or sculpt whoever’s (celebrity) face onto your balloon friend.

Some even use other materials just for the head, hands, feet, and genitals so they look more realistic. You can also get things like pocket pussies or Onaholes to put into the vaginal cavity for increased sensations (just make sure the hole is big enough to accommodate the sleeve and the stick).

Not sure about pocket pussies? Learn more here:

I also read an interesting article about stuffing your doll (obvious joke aside).

You can cut tiny slits (preferably in places that aren’t going to bend that much) into your doll and fill it with something soft like poly-pellets, fiberfill, or cotton polyester, and then tape it up after.

I would not recommend taking it to build-a-bear and using their stuffing machine (unless you like jail).

THE PROS AND CONS


Easy to store – Perfect if space is limited or you have to hide it

They are cheap – Real dolls start at $1000,  inflatable ones at 15.

Weight – Light as air while real dolls are heavy

Lube – Just needs regular lube and normal re-application

Cleaning – Easy if it’s vinyl, just follow package directions

Holes – Usually just one, better ones will have two maybe three

Feel – It won’t feel “real” at all – if that’s important to you

Pain – Cheap ones have seams that can scratch or cut

WHERE TO BUY AN INFLATABLE DOLL


START WITH BRICK AND MORTAR STORES

 This will be your safest best. If you go in person, you can at least check it out and pay attention to details you can’t see online. Google search for sex shops near you.

TRY MORE TRUSTED ONLINE SHOPS

The next step is more reputable online sellers like Adam & Eve. They at least have a guarantee and post far more product details. However, you’ll still have to sift through the low-quality options.

Then there’s AmigaToy.com

They have plenty of okay dolls on their site (and one of the few places I could find mid-priced options), but I still found many products that are penis torcher devices bought from places like 1688.com

INFLATABLE SEX DOLL REVIEWS


HANNAH THE INFLATABLE LOVE DOLL ($20)

Let’s start with all the things that are wrong with “Hannah”.

First, it says she has three holes, but they only show the mouth (barely).  

If you’re going to buy any air dolls, make sure you can see the openings so you know what the seams are like and whether or not they will send you to the hospital. There’s also no telling if a pussy sleeve will fit inside.

All of this pales in comparison to the disturbing excuse for a face.  It looks like something from a straight-to-video bachelor party movie or a Miley Cyrus concert, not something in bed with you.  What do I like about it? … It’s cheap as chips. If it dies after one use, you won’t be out that much money. 

TRANSPARENT BODY PARTS ($15-30)

Creepy, I know, but these are much better because they can accommodate a pussy sleeve.  

They are inexpensive, but you don’t have to worry about scratching or scraping (although I can’t speak on the quality of the sleeve, I’m guessing it’s pretty porous).

I would go for something like this long before I would go for anything like we saw in the previous review, especially if you’re on the fence about whether a blow-up doll right for you.

Some people have managed to get over the transparency by finding ones with head attachments or throwing clothes on them.

INFLATABLE DOLL PILLOW ($40)

I have to say that these aren’t that bad.

Fewer appendages mean fewer seams to rip and let out air. Also, the printing on them is super cute anime rather than a porn actress’s image got stuck in the printer got smeared across the vinyl.  

But the number one selling point is they are MADE to fit any onahole you can get your hands on. THAT alone is worth the money. Plus, bunnies are friggin adorable. 

BED KINGFU DOLL FROM AMIGA TOY ($50)

The Bed Kungfu girl is also okay.

Fifty bucks gets you more realistic appendages (although the nipples are funny as hell), and the vaginal sleeve can be taken out if you want to clean it fast.

I’ll take off points for the fact that the thing looks like something out of a horror movie, a raspy voice telling you to, “open the gift on your front step.”

UPINVA DEEP THROAT DOLL ($133)

I found this one on Amazon. I also found a pile of others that had the exact same pricing of 133.99 but from different sellers … easy to see what’s going on here. Can we say, “WHITE LABEL” boys and girls!

What you’re paying for is the attempt at a realistic head, hands, and feet, as well as an air pump, sound generator, USB heated stick. 

They did well with posting what the vaginal hole looks like, however, I wouldn’t recommend it. Mostly because you can get a similar doll (like in the previous review) for cheaper.

EXTRAVAGANZA’S LEXI TYLER OR CAYENNE CLEURE ($169)

One very valuable resource I stumbled upon was ourdollcommunity.com

This forum is a fountain of information: user experiences, scam sites to avoid, lists of more reputable sellers etc. Granted they focus mostly on things like silicone dolls, but there is a section for inflatables.

It’s there I stumbled across Lexi and Cayenne.  

They are made from PVC, ABS, and TPE. There is also an AA battery bullet vibrator included.

Users speak highly of them. they do, however, run you $160 or more. KISSKISS.ch in Switzerland feels legit and they have a decent return policy. I also like the fact they steer away from low-quality products. 

INFLATABLE JUDY OR IDEAL HUSBAND/WIFE

I threw these models in because you’ll definitely come across something like them in your searches. Keep in mind they are intended for NOVELTY USE ONLY. 

I threw these models in because you’ll definitely come across something like them in your searches. Keep in mind they are intended for NOVELTY USE ONLY. 

Judy (right image)  is what most people think when it comes to inflatable dolls – which is why they flinch at the idea of an air-filled friend.

However, they are just gag gifts, because everything is out of proportion and there are NO HOLES. Sellers even state this in the details. Save these for giggles at a party.

DON’T BUY THESE…


Chinese Products, Most Amazon, and 1688.com 

Let’s take a look at this model from Amazon.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for the concept of a male doll (hey, us girls can have a little fun too). The vibrating dildo attachment is intriguing and the head/hands/feet are trying to be more realistic, but if we look closely at the picture…

Take a look at the material list…

PVC and silica gel!

If that’s what the vibrator is made from, STAY AWAY. Even if it’s called “medical grade”, it’s not body safe and a flat-out lie.  

Also, see what language it’s written in?  

This is where my research ended up taking me at nearly every turn, and it shouldn’t be a surprise.

Companies want to make money, customers don’t want to pay a lot, and China is currently one of the places that can churn out enough inexpensive products (in part, thanks to the embarrassingly low wages they give their workers).

Amazon sellers like K&L or XJBFL are most likely getting their stock from places like 1688.com (the biggest digital wholesaler in China).

Therefore, in general, I advise most people to stay away from Amazon, if humanly possible (unless the seller is known and reputable).

I like the dolls that had one hole that went straight through from front to back! The pressure from it squeezing you was great! I cannot find them anymore! The newer ones have separate pockets for front and back!

I got an inflatable one last year from Adam & Eve and didnt like it. It had 3 holes but they were to small so I threw it out after trying to use it twice.

Inflatable sex dolls are always disappointing. I hate the TPE inserts and all the noise they make when we have sex. I bought a silicone doll from MiniLoveDolls.com that feels much better so I’m going to start saving for a realdoll. All the TPE dolls are from China and not worth the risk!

Great article. Amazon is a gamble, except not really… you get what you pay for…
