Openly displayed sex toys are illegal under indecency laws in Texas. The law labels the sex toy as an "obscene device". Texas bans owning or promoting the use of more than six dildos.

I do not believe there is a law prohibiting minors from buying sex toys so long as there are no pornographic images on the box/instructions etc. Your best bet is to go into a novelty store like spensors and buy a gag gift.
