The Flex Mini® vs. Sunny 026B Thigh Master

The Sunny 026B Thigh Master is a device that utilizes a relatively well known name and an equally famous design. Mimicking the original Thigh Master that was once promoted by Suzanne Somers, the Sunny 026B Thigh Master is a blue padded foam device that features a resistance coil in the middle. The user places the two padded wings of the device in the inner parts of the thighs and squeezes his or her legs together. Because of the resistance spring, this motion requires use of the thigh muscles, constituting a basic workout.

The Sunny 026B Thigh Master can also be used on the arms and upper body. It is sold for $15.94 on the official Sears website. Sears does not appear to offer any bonus materials for the Sunny 026B Thigh Master and they charge $12.95 to ship it anywhere in the United States. As far as purchases and shipping go, the only eligible foreign country appears to be the U.S. territory Puerto Rico, and in this regard shipping and handling costs are not clear. Sears offers a 90 day satisfaction guarantee policy but we found no mention of a warranty from the manufacturer.
