Rotating Beads

Many of the reviews I read about rabbit vibrators with rotating beads indicated that oftentimes after extended use, they stop working. I'm curious as to what Cal Exotics is doing / has done to create stronger beads that last longer.

Mmm, 'm not sure, but mine hasn't given me any issues even after many, many uses

I'm not quite sure, either, but i've had mine for a year, and the beads still work like new (:

We have not seen many problems with out rabbit style vibes. The beads (which come in many different types of materials) are all long lasting.
Also, most of our high end products are made with stainless steel. You cannot go wrong with that

What toys are these that the beads have continued to work? What should those of us searching for a vibe with beads look for to get a good one? I read somewhere once that you want to find beads that are "inset" or something. Because if they are "freestanding" (these are not the actual words, but I think should get the point across) the beads can jam and stop working. How can I tell whether the beads are inset or not?

Hi everyone! When rotating beads first appeared (Jack Rabbit circa 1980's) they were loose inside the outer skin of the vibe. They were only contained by a cavity that the mold created, and they "rotated" by an inner rotating shaft. Actually, they really didn't rotate as much as they basically mashed against one another...enough so that it introduced a whole new pleasurable feeling. As the bead concept progressed with newer toys, the mechanisms became more cumbersome, and usually jammed to the point of no longer able to rotate. Over the years, California Exotic Novelties addressed this problem, and now, beads are actually mounted on metal circles that are permanently affixed to the rotating post in the center of the vibe. We are clear in our descriptions saying "non-jamming" beads. Most of our rabbit style vibes have this feature...but, we continue to sell the "Original" Jack Rabbit as one of our best sellers! Go figure!

That's GREAT to know. It's the "fun" kind of history lesson. Thanks for letting us know, Al!

Thanks, Al! The rabbits with the tracks seem to hold up better. Now, if I could find a rabbit whose beads I couldn't stop with my PC muscles, we'd have something.

Always moving forward. My guess Cal Exotics and others will continue to improve the technology to keep us pleased.

I've always wanted to try one with beads =p
I wondered how they would hold up over time. Thanks!

Pick one that is labeled "non-jamming" beads...these are beads on a spindle that rotates. They won't hang up and stall the action!
