    Just wondering if you are restricted to one entry, or can you submit as many designs as you like?? Cheers (Not that I've even come up with one yet but knowing me i'll probably end up with a few lol)

    Its going to take me a week at least just whittling down my ideas to the one. Oh and another week getting rid of the ridiculous ideas...although a 60ft sex robot isn't that ridiculous right?!!

    What were the winners of previous years? I see in the 'Design a sex toy' link it says the 2009 winner was the Sqweel... Just interested.

    The winners each year receive their monetary prize, and we try to find ways to bring the product to market.

    Previous years' winners have had £££ spent on development, but none except the Sqweel have yet managed to meet the exacting standards we have to get the greenlight for full production.

    Obviously, we need to keep the designs under wraps in the mean time and most of the winners wish to stay anonymous - but please rest assured that the winners receive their cash prize and we make every effort to put the design into production!

    If you come up with a concept, but the design needs developing, will it be thrown out or chosen as something to work on with experts? i.e. does it need to be the exact finished article, or more of an idea with a few sketches? x

    I think I'm going along the lines of when is a sex toy not like a sex toy? When it doesn't look like one. If you left it in your kids toy box you're not going to get that embarassing question... "Mummy what is this and what does it do?" Lol....

    I think you'll be fine - remember folks, your toy will likely go through many many changes before it turns into a physical thing. Sketches are great, as they will help the judges imagine the finished item.

    Generally, give some thought to the materials, and how the toy will work. If it vibrates, how does it vibrate? If there's a mechanical motion, how will that work? Always give some thought to the laws of physics here! There's no such thing as perpetual motion and friction can slow a toy right down.

    Try not to make the toy too fiddly or gimmicky. Self lubricating toys are submitted every year (as are vibrating gloves!) - research your idea and make sure it doesn't already exist (or has been patented)

    Good luck everyone!
