    Why is so much great stuff discontinued? :( I have the battery operated version of the Moody, and it's great.

    I think they are constantly evaluating products and rotating what they stock. I just wish they could ntoify us better if it is on a wishlist.... thank you for everyone who posts here. I find it very helpful.

    Is there something going on at Lovehoney that we don't know about?

    I understand that to make room for new items some must be discontinued, but, why are so many "new" items being discontinued?

    I really don't understand. Lovehoney what am I missing?

    maybe it's like the "pressure" method: constant rotation and restock to push people to buy stuff whilst they see it, because soon enough it'll be gone, so buy it whilst you can... probs good for business

    I would love to know too fun Louise. I assumed it was down to things not selling well, but we can't be the only ones lusting after these products. I find it hard to believe the clitorizer and Crowned jewels dildos don't sell well.
    Popk1n I think if that were the case they would give notifications of discontinued products. A lot of people would buy them under pressure but have no idea they are being discontinued until it's too late.

    I have posted this on the "great big suggestion thread", just wondered what others thought.

    We all know how annoying it is when we miss out on an item that has been discontinued and we didn't know. That's why this thread was created. Many people have expressed a wish for notification of discontinued items, but this I understand to be very complicated to implement. I think I may have found a viable solution.

    When an item becomes discontinued its status on the lovehoney computer stem must change (not to be restocked) or something like this. When this change is made on the system, maybe the item could automatically be added to a list of other not to be restocked items. I'm sure it's only a few lines of programming code to automatically list an item when it's restock quantity is changed to 0.

    I envisage the list spearing in much the same was as the " what's new in" lists, just more "not to be restocked" list. This would benefit everyone. Customers could prioritise their purchases, and reduce the risk of dissapointment of missing out on an item. Sales would increase of discontinued items and this would literally convert into space in the warehouse for new products.

    Do you think lovehoney would give it a go?

    I'm purely speculating, but it's likely a combination of things... LH will order in 'x' amount of a new toy from a supplier, and if it's not shifting at a certain rate then they won't order a 2nd batch. It seems to be trial and error. If they were truly desperate to sell the last of a badly selling range, it'd be discounted to help shift them. In the case of those crowned jewels, I guess they've done OK, but not as well as hoped.

    Then again, it could be wanting to keep things fresh.

    Perhaps they are items that get a lot of returns. Meaning lovehoney lose money. As you said it's probably a combination of things and different with each item. It is annoying though, I have most of the older items I want so I'm only likely to buy from the newer options.

    Hmmm very true Vanilla_Kink. Then I suppose Sex Squid's suggestion is more likely :) either way, they are a business and will operate in whatever way is best for them I suppose
