So, I just spent 2 hours trying to fight my way through people stealing my rings, and finally got the Blazing Wings. Awesome!

However, when I use them and switch to Feral, the buff goes away. Which is a bummer because I wanted to mix them with my flaming kitty effect using some of my Burning Seed. "This is gonna be so sweet" I said to myself.

Well, ok.... so it doesn't work. Well.. bummer. However, the buff is actually removed when we switch, so we can't even see it in human form again.

Can you guys please spend a LITTLE more time on these toys and make them a bit more friendly for players? I know it's just an aesthetic item and a toy, but it's super disappointing that they don't take into account all the classes.

There were some issues with certain cosmetic effects, such as Blazing Wings, attaching to shapeshift forms incorrectly (e.g. backwards, upside-down, etc). We had to disable them temporarily, but we've isolated the issues causing the bug, and should have it fixed for the next major patch. We think a feral Druid with fiery wings is going to look pretty sweet too.

Longer-term, we're working on a way to allow cosmetic toys that completely take over your character (such as Smite's Brass Compass or Krastinov's Bag of Horrors) to work with shapeshift forms as well. I don't have details to share on exactly how that's going to work yet, but we're working on a solution that will allow everyone to enjoy their toys, without hurting gameplay for other players (such as being able to recognize when a Druid is in Cat form and thus unable to be Polymorphed).
