The Sex & Mischief Feather Spanker is about 23.5 inches long. The handle is plastic, the crop is made out of faux leather, and the feathers are... feathers.
The crop is pretty sturdy, and is made of 3-ply faux leather. It's in the shape of a hand.
The feathers look like they are black, but in the right light they have a hint of green.
Both the crop and the feathers are held on to the handle by a rubbery type material. I think that if anything were to happen to this toy, it would be at the points where the ends meet the plastic handle. They seem secure enough now, but it would really just depend on how hard you play.
My husband loathes being tickled. But... I love torturing him, so I did it anyways. I had him blindfolded, so he had no idea what he was getting into. I tickled him until he begged me to stop, and then in half a second, I thwacked him with the crop side. He was shocked, considering he didn't even know we owned this toy yet and didn't think I had our crop out. It really took him off guard, and even more so when I started giggling at all the little handprints all over him.
He said it was just as stingy as our other crop, which has a longer end on it, and is a little more flimsy. It didn't take much effort at all for me to leave marks.
If you should need to clean this, it would be best to just use some warm water. There's no special storage needed, but you might want to make sure the feathers aren't getting ruffled if you want to keep them pretty.

Just like the back of the packaging on all the other toys from the Sex & Mischief line, it has a little erotica story that pertains to that specific toy:
