Finding your perfect bondage gear is no doubt a struggle – but with the Animal Instinct 5 Piece Bondage Kit, I found mine! This cute and comfortable bondage kit by Pipedream is a catch when it comes to BDSM toys. It’s a great kit for a beginner, but even the most seasoned bondage lover could enjoy it. You could honestly go into using this kit with no knowledge of anything bondage, and still manage to have an amazing time.

Given that I’ve had a small amount of bondage experience, I went in with an open mind and a lot of excitement. I’ve tried many different handcuffs before – from the mock police metal cuffs to a pair of rubber black shackles – as well as spanking with an object and using a belt like a choker – but this kit takes it to the next level. The kit includes a collar, two handcuffs, a blindfold, a flogger, and a ball gag. Each is covered in a velvet soft faux “fur” with a purple and black zebra print design. Not only is it really cute, it also keeps your bare skin from harm and discomfort – specifically, the collar and handcuffs feel SO much better than anything metallic. I’ll go over each toy in detail below. Overall, this kit is a wonderful match for me, and if you’re seriously considering expanding your kinky side, stay tuned.

About My Reviews & Ratings


At a Glance

I was overwhelmed with excitement when I opened this box. I went in presuming I’d love it, and for the most part, I do. Opening the box, I found a plastic bag filled with all of my amazing new toys. This kit comes with everything you need to get started with bondage: a pair of comfortable (though unreliable) handcuffs, a blindfold, a collar, a ball gag, and of course, the flogger. Each piece of this kit is covered in purple and black faux “fur”, which is basically a furrier, glittery velvet. All of the pieces are designed to fit comfortably and securely.


The Blindfold

Given that I used to sleep with a sleeping mask on (read: blindfold), I’ve had several come and go in my lifetime. Of all the blindfolds I’ve used, this is by far my favorite. The outside is covered in zebra printed fur while the inside is soft and comfortable against your bare skin. While wearing the blindfold, about 90% of my vision was obscured. If you position it properly to your face, you really can completely cover your range of vision. The elastic material that goes around your head is definitely stretchy and comfortable, and doesn’t get tangled up in my hair. The mask itself is 8.5 inches (21.59 cm) and is genuinely comfortable on my face. It works well and stays tightly in position. The elastic is 11 inches (27.94 cm) when fully expanded, so just about everyone can use it. Everything about this blindfold is high quality, and I really love that. One of the best – if not THE best – blindfolds I’ve ever used, by a landslide.

The Handcuffs

These handcuffs are both really adorable and problematic. In general, these cuffs are extremely easy to use and wear. The cuff’s width varies based on how tight you velcro it. The cuffs are 7 inches (17.78 cm) apart and 4 inches (10.16 cm) in diameter when the velcro is at its loosest. You can loosen or tighten them to perfectly fit your wrist size. What I love about these cuffs is that, unlike others, they don’t hurt or get too tight. Instead, the velvety fur protects your wrists from actually being harmed or uncomfortable.

The cuffs themselves are comfortable and high quality, but the chain and vinyl that connects the two is lacking strength, at best. The cuffs are attached by a metal chain inside a vinyl band. The vinyl bit began to tear after the first or second use, and by the third, it broke and they became detached entirely. It was truly heartbreaking when they became separated, but they ran their course and I had a blast using them. In the end, a pair of real handcuffs may be sturdier, but these take the cake in cuteness! They may be best when used to attach someone to furniture – as using the cuffs by themselves caused them to inevitably break. They would be best for light use and play, but if you’re pulling hard, be aware that they’re likely to break.

The Collar

For me, the collar was a huge part of the fun. I’d already spent months looking for the perfect collar: comfortable, cute, good for more than a few uses, but still gets the job done. With this collar, I found almost all of that. The collar itself is just adorable: the fur accents aren’t itchy against the skin of my neck, and watching someone hold the end of your leash is a great feeling – at least for me. When the velcro is at its tightest, the collar is 5 inches (12.7 cm) in diameter; at its loosest, the diameter is roughly 6.5 – 7 inches (16.51 – 17.78 cm). The length of the leash from the clasp is 29 inches (73.66 cm) and I consider this a good amount of distance for play.

The problem? Like the handcuffs, the collar is connected by metal and that weird black vinyl, which has almost no strength. I loved using this collar – on both my man and myself – but after several uses, the clasp and metal link that connected the leash to the collar eventually snapped off. It will take a lot for me to say that this collar serves no purpose, when it does in fact look really cute all by itself. But, the leash itself was strong enough to be pulled by myself and my man, and almost all the parts of this collar and leash combination are high quality – but the silly little vinyl bits they used to try to hold things together ended up being a burden.

The Gag

My experience with ball gags and gags in general was very limited before now. And for a first time user, this ball gag does not disappoint. The ball itself is 2 inches (5.08 cm), which is plenty if we’re talking about putting such a thing in my mouth. The ball itself has the texture of a wiffle ball – a sort of plastic feeling, hard, but with a decent amount of air holes for safety purposes. The strap parts of the gag are really comfortable too – it’s like a soft leather. This gag is very adjustable with a full length of 24.5 inches (62.23 cm). At its loosest, it measures a diameter of 7.5 inches (19.05 cm) and at its tightest, 5 inches (12.7 cm). But the real question is: how comfortable is it?

Both he and I used this gag – and we both really enjoyed it! Since I have long hair, my first thought was wondering if it would pull my hair when closing the clasp over top of it, and the answer is a positive and resounding no. It has several different hole adjustments for tightness, but our ideal range was in the first two tightest holes (no pun intended). The inside of the strap is actually really comfortable against your face and mouth, more so than I would have thought. But after all was done and enjoyed, we realized the gag was covered in saliva, and we were left wondering how we’re supposed to clean it – considering all the holes that allow the saliva to get all up in there.

My cleaning method: I pushed the strap parts back and put the ball itself under water. The wear marks on the exterior immediately vanished. I used my fingers to gently rub all over it to make ensure I got it all off. Warm and cool water worked fine – I probably wouldn’t use hot but I’m paranoid. Drying it off, I used paper towels (you could also use a towel) and gently dabbed all over it. Just be careful not to get the leather and fur wet, as it could get gross over time. If the gag starts to smell or taste funny after a while, toss it!

The Flogger

Last but by no means least, we have the flogger. From handle to tails it is 17 inches (43.18 cm) in length, and would be great for everyone from beginners to professionals. It’s easy to swing and use but better than that, it’s also fun and feels fabulous to use! You can deliver blows soft enough to tease, or hard enough to make you really whimper. The tails themselves are very soft and feel pleasurable on skin, and it’s design makes it really lightweight.

Everything about this flogger is high quality; the tails are soft but can pack a swift and stinging blow, it can be used with or without the strap, and the fur is a cute addition. I liked using this flogger and being on the giving end, but I truly enjoyed being on the receiving end because of the stinging, thudding pleasure is packs. And as for the actual weight and heft of this flogger, when it’s on your wrist or in your hand, it barely feels like anything’s there. It’s overall lightweight. Personally, I love it, and I’m very satisfied now that I have it. This is a great impact toy to add to your collection and an even better one to start it with!

Pros and Cons

Pros:

  • Adorable as Hell: Purple and black zebra print looks really cute in cuffs and collars – and this set makes for some great pictures.
  • Travel Friendly: It all fits into a box that can be stashed in a purse, backpack, or suitcase.
  • Sturdy: Everything is well-made and meant to last, except for the vinyl pieces that broke.
  • Comfortable: The blindfold, gag, cuffs, and collar are all very comfortable and the fur isn’t bothersome, which was something that I didn’t expect.

Cons:

  • Weird Vinyl: The black vinyl type material on the cuffs and collar was far too weak to handle the force that someone other than a beginner would use. Ideally, that part would be made of a stronger material to keep them connected.
  • Cuffs and Collar Broke: It was a really saddening experience to lose the cuffs and collar to some mild use, so if you’re going to put force on them beyond some beginner play, beware.

Overall

The Animal Instinct 5 Piece Bondage Kit is no doubt a great kit, and a beginner especially would truly benefit from having it. The kit gave me almost everything I wanted, and is a great starter set for anyone just starting to explore BDSM. The blindfold is simultaneously cute and sexy while still being comfortable, the flogger is heavenly, and the gag is a really good addition to any kinky person’s sex life. The biggest downfall of this kit is the vinyl that connects the two cuffs, and the collar to the leash. Both broke within about 3 uses. Very little pressure can be put on those pieces, and typical bondage beyond some light wear would probably be too much for the vinyl to handle. But despite the broken pieces, I really like this bondage kit overall. The cuffs themselves are cuter and more comfortable than any other pair of cuffs I’ve worn, and the collar is nice quality. For the low price, a beginner can’t go wrong!
