Overview

Product summary and comments by Emma (Girl With Fire)

Summary:

I recommend that unless you are purchasing this as decoration or a greeting card, you look elsewhere. There are a lot of great paddles out there, this is not one of them. I am giving this product 2 stars, but only because I think its pretty.

Best use:

Honestly, I think the best use for this toy is as a gag gift or for decoration. As far as usability goes... it just wont hold up to more than a couple of smacks. This is a nice shiny paddle, the rhinestones give some extra texture so you can choose your side, but the stabilizer in the diamond paddle seems to be something in the neighborhood of cardboard. In my opinion there should be a tag attached somewhere that says "NOT FOR ACTUAL USE".

California Exotic does make some really good products. This just doesn't happen to be one of them.

    Emma (Girl With Fire)'s opinion
    Size wise, this toy is great. It is 13" or 33 cm in length. That is probably the only positive thing I can say about it. ho
    The materials in this toy are listed as follows: 80% pvc, 15% polyester, 5% stabilizer. They polyester is in the rope, so really this paddle is made up of almost entirely pvc, and it shows. After just a couple soft smacks against my own palm, this paddle is essentially useless, the stabilizer gave out and there is now a gentle fold in the neck of the paddle; right below the diamond.

    The stitching is solid, the rhinestones seem to be well fixed to the diamond shape of the paddle face, but seem like they would fall off of the neck fairly easily.
  • Performance

    Emma (Girl With Fire)'s opinion
    Horrible. I would not recommend this paddle for actual use. If anything I would purchase it and write on it with one of those shiny silver markers. It could make one kick butt greeting card. As I said above, after a couple soft smacks against the palm of my hand the stabilizer buckled and there is now a slight bold in the neck of the paddle.
  • Care and Maintenance

    Emma (Girl With Fire)'s opinion
    You could easily clean this with a damp cloth. If you are putting it away somewhere, make sure there is plenty of room, if you try and wedge it anywhere it is sure to fold on you.
  • Packaging

    Emma (Girl With Fire)'s opinion
    This toy was packaged in a clear plastic bag, and came with a small tag attached. The tag has the name of the Diamond Paddle on it, as well as the manufacturer California Exotic. There is also material information and the normal bit about this being a novelty item, for external use only. Any use for medical purpose is strictly prohibited etc. The packaging is about as minimal as the product material.
  • Personal comments

    Emma (Girl With Fire)'s opinion
    This paddle would have been perfectly acceptable if something sturdy had been used as a stabilizer. I really like the look of it, very shiny, pretty and menacing at the same time.
  • Experience

    Emma (Girl With Fire)'s opinion
    My experience with this toy lasted all of the 5 minutes it took me to get it out of the packaging and have it break within the first couple or smacks I gave the palm of my hand. It is now quite pathetic looking.
