Copymate?

♥ Amanda ♥ ♥ Amanda ♥
Okay so I have had my hot rabbit for a while now. link And I really loved it. But I think I dropped it too many times because I busted the cap and it cannot be used anymore.

So I looked for a bit for another vibe just like it, but wanted to get something new so I could also review it. There are not too many that are simple, lightweight, and a dial base. I think those function boxes add too much weight and bulkiness.

The only two I found like it are the Impulse Rabbit, which I am dying to have, but it is always out of stock, And then there was the Wabbit Vibe. Which is what I actually purchased. link

I thought both the Hot Rabbit and the Wabbit Vibe were similar, but not IDENTICAL???

Can you say copy? The hot is made by WHK and the Wabbit is made by Pipedream. But there are exactly the same right down to the little eyes. The only difference: color.

Are there many copied toys out there?

They're both copies of the Rabbit Habit by Vibratex, which may or may not have been the original. There are tons of copies, even Jimmyjane makes one.

A lot of these companies don't make their own toys; they buy them from manufacturers who make them for everyone, then name them as they wish. You'll see it a lot with just about every type of toy. It's not a copy, it IS the same toy in many cases, just ordered by different companies in different colors, etc.

Thanks, that just answered my own question about this.

I had been looking at rabbits yesterday and had noticed another pair that were identical. At first I thought there could have been a mixed up in item's pictures. But as I looked them up on the Internet, the search results gave me identical pictures as well. That they are identical makes sense.

I have suspected this but never followed up. Certainly good to know. Thanks,

With the two you have links for above there is a material difference. AKAme, when you get your new rabbit can you please write a review? I really like the look of this but am unsure of the jelly.

I've seen toys out there with the same look and same everything but made by different companies and have different names. I always think its weird but Carrie Ann's explanation makes sense. Its weird how that works.

Sometimes the same molds are used, but not the same materials. It just depends. Sometimes it's a similar design but different motors and functions - not every design is patented, many are not.

This is true with many things. When I was 17 I worked in this apple factory. For a few days they would bottle apple juice for one of the major brands you've heard of, then for a few days they would bottle juice for another brand you've heard of, and then for a few days they would bottle juice for various generic brands... the juice was always the same.

I just randomly found exact twins: link and link. Literally, the only difference is the logo on the front.
