Many folks look toward Bad Dragon as the leader in fantasy dildos, but there's a growing market of creators that are selling all sorts of types and varying quality. One that recently popped up – surprisingly on Amazon – was Nothosaur, which has a quite-diverse variety of shapes and appeared to be quality silicone to boot. I had asked a couple weeks ago in a few places if anyone had bought them and if the purchase was worth it, but there wasn't much detail out there nor consensus. The seem to be based out of China with primary markets in US and Japan (and maybe EU?).
I (AMAB, non-binary, femboy, they/them) have bought multiple Bad Dragon toys (as well as a variety of other dildos from places like SquarePeg) mostly for oral and anal play, so I was really keen on trying out a new BD alternative that could possibly get around their insane pandemic backlog/wait times (and be convenient to purchase, since they have an Amazon store)... sorry BD, I just can't wait anymore!
So I acquired one to do a test run on it, and here's a review!
I got the Avoyo (non-affiliate Amazon link), zebra-pattern in Medium. Avoyo comes in 3 sizes – which you can see in their size chart on Amazon – but the Medium clocks in at a 2.6-inch head with a 13-inch length (including base) and 2.4-inch width. A pretty big boy~ This one did not come with a cum-tube, but it seems like you can order those as well. It arrived in a regular, non-branded box, was wrapped heavily, and then had its own sealed product bag as well.

Pros
• First off, the silicone: it's real, it feels great, and it appears just as high quality as my other BD toys. This was actually a big worry of mine (having experienced unsafe toys very early on in my toy exploration), so I was really really happy when I opened it up!
• Next, firmness. It doesn't seem like you can order firmness settings (I think they have custom ordering on their website, but it appears to have disappeared on their Amazon listings). Either way, this one IIRC was supposed to be "soft," but it feels more like a halfway point between BD's soft and medium firmness. It can be a bit hard to get in, because it is flexible, unless you're using the suction cup against a hard surface.
• Speaking of: the toy comes with a suction cup right off the bat. No needing to spend extra money to get that added in. I really love this feature.
• Let's talk about texture. I've used a bunch of different BD toys before, and the Avoyo has some really nice crafting patterns in the overall design of the toy. And boy can you FEEL them very well. I was worried the squishiness was going to make it disappear, but what I love about this toy is how flexible it is, but you can still really feel the veins, the medial ring, and especially those folds at the very bottom.
• Color-wise, it's pretty basic, but I really do like the zebra pattern, which other toy makers don't have in their equine options. Furry ahoy!
• Pricing: compared to Bad Dragon, you're saving some money, but it's still not super cheap (but what fantasy toys are, right?).
• Delivery seemed to be relatively fast: only about 2-3 weeks for this one (has anyone else has any other different timing?). It wasn't clear to me if they had this in stock, or if they had to produce it on order.
• Their customer service on Twitter is pretty responsive if you have questions (they do have staff in English). Also, to note, their Twitter seems to have a fair bit of information about their market growth push, so it's pretty easy to find discount codes if you look around or ask.

Cons
• Not reeeally a con, and probably up to the individual's tastes, but while the head on this big boy is squishy (see the GIF above) it's still quite hard. It REALLY pops in, if you know what I mean. Some fantasy toys makers do a mix of medium firmness for the body of the toy with a softer head, and I hope this company can maybe offer that in the future.
• The company's branding is very... familiar... I wonder if they'll rebrand in the future to develop more of their own style and image.

Overall, if you're looking for a new toy and want to move past BD's stocking/ordering issues, Nothosaur seems to be a good option. If you have the cash to spare, I'd rate this a buy. I'm having a ton of fun with the Avoyo, and I think might try to get some others soon, especially if BD can't sort out their ordering block anytime soon. I wouldn't say this replaces any fantasy toy makers, but it definitely adds some good options into the larger pool.

I think it's worth mentioning that if you check their Twitter (@NothosaurToys), they're coming out with a ton of new toys pretty quickly, so it'll be interesting to follow them and see if they can built up some extra unique items.

Feel free to ask questions below (or check my profile which will soon have more videos that I couldn't include in this review per the subreddit's rules). I hope this review gives some additional info that's helpful to the community, since a few people have been asking about the quality and reliability of Nothosaur's lineup.
