Party Lights and Pokey Ears.

The Icicles No. 16 is an amazing toy and a totally new way to look at the traditional Rabbit style vibrator. The slight texture but small size make it a perfect toy for beginners and advanced users alike. The detachable bullet makes it appealing to those who can't feel the clitoral vibrations when the bullet is in place in the toy, so that even those who can't quite make it position correctly can get the benefits of dual stimulation.

Use

The Icicles No. 16 by Pipedream is a glass rabbit style vibrator that is made of two parts - the plastic 10-setting bullet and a pink and clear, slightly textured glass dildo. This toy is great for g-spot and clitoral stimulation and can be used for anal play. The bullet is not very loud, the level is less than that of my cell phone's vibration setting, but the glass is completely non-discreet.

The bullet is not completely waterproof, but it is not a fixed part of the design so you can take it out of the little hole it fits snugly into and use it separate from the toy on different body parts. This aspect also allows for the glass bit to be used alone and in the tub or shower.

The orientation of the clitoral attachment to the rest of the toy is such that you may not be able to use the bullet in the toy since glass has no give or flexibility; this may cause the rabbit part to not hit your clit or for the ears to poke uncomfortably at you. If you have a VCH like I do or any other piercing, the rabbit ears may also hit uncomfortably against it. However, with a little trial and error, I think that this would be a great toy for most women.

Material / Texture

Number 16 is made of ultra safe and sturdy Pyrex glass- the same stuff that the oh so popular cookware is made of. It is non-porous and receives a 10 on the safety scale, meaning that it can be sterilized and shared safely between partners. The bullet for the innovative design is made of plastic, which is also a non-porous and hygienic material.

The glass part of the toy is completely waterproof. It is smooth along the head until you get to the pink spirals; there you'll find a slightly raised ridge. These ridges add a little stimulation while thrusting. Internally I didn't notice them at all. The bullet and controller are made of light pink, translucent plastic, and both have LED lights. The bullet is powerful and waterproof, but the controller is not since there is nothing protecting the inner workings from the snap in lid to the battery compartment.

Because the toy is glass, you should always check it for nicks, chips or cracks before use, and never use a toy that you find to have any.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Rigid

Design / Shape / Size

The Icicles No. 16 is not very realistic in design, something that I like a lot. It has a smooth, bulbous head that gently and almost unnoticeably curves inward to the straight and ribbed shaft. It then curves back up and the clitoral attachment part protrudes out. For the clitoral attachment, there is a small hole that the bullet fits tightly in and two pointed and very annoying pink tipped ears. Behind the juncture of the 'rabbit' part and the shaft, the glass is straight and ribbed again ending at a hole for a handle that two fingers easily fit in.

The toy is not very large in terms of girth. It only measures just under an inch in diameter along the shaft and a little over an inch on the head. It's about 7 1/2 inches long, with 3 1/2 of those inches being insertable. Because the toy is hand blown glass, your own measurements may vary but if they do it won't be by much.

The ears on the clit attachment may prove to be a bit frustrating for some. Because glass is rigid and has no give at all, you can't adjust the placement even the slightest bit. It may miss the clit while inserted entirely or poke uncomfortably. Also, because it is glass, you should be careful while thrusting because bruising yourself both internally and externally is a very likely possibility with this toy. The bulged head however makes for amazing g-spot stimulation.
The toy can be used anally, but I've never used it that way.

This Icicle would be, in my opinion, great for partner play because of the detachable bullet. If you thrust the glass while your partner runs the bullet over you or vice versa, it could be a great experience!

Functions / Performance / Controls

The bullet has 10 settings that are controlled by a little pink translucent box with one button that is run by 3 AAA batteries. You can push the bottom half of the button for quick on/off, but if you turn it off when you restart it, it will return back to the first setting. The vibrations are more buzzy, but even on high the toy is not loud at all. When inserted in the clit attachment in the glass, the fit is so tight that there is no rattling noise at all. The vibrations can be felt slightly in the rabbit ears, but I couldn't feel them internally at all, and the glass sort of dampens the intensity of the vibrations. The bullet and the controller have little LED lights (clear/white on the bullet and red on the controller) that stay solid through the first three settings and at number four and above blink in time with the pattern. It's almost like having a rave in your pussy.

The ten patterns are amazing; strong, but not too strong. The first three are the standard low/medium/high. Setting 4 - straight, rapid pulses on the 'high' setting.
Setting 5 - rapid pulse followed by a long drawn out pulse.
Setting 6 - Increase in intensity, steady vibration
Setting 7 - pulses slower than 4, with a slow intensity increase
Setting 8 - long pulses followed by a series of faster, stronger pulses
Setting 9 - one long steady vibration/pulse followed by faster stronger pulses
Setting 10 - long medium intensity pulse followed by the rapid high pulses like setting 4.

Don't let the size fool you, the little bullet packs a punch. I'd say the high setting was one I almost couldn't take in a steady vibration, but because of the variation and the fact that most of the settings are of medium intensity the toy has something for everyone. My bullet also got really hot after a few minutes, it wasn't something that bothered me during play, but I noticed it afterward and when I was cycling through the settings to write this. I think it has something to do with that little light on the bottom of the bullet, but I could be wrong. It just seems like the heat is mainly at the bottom of the bullet where the cord comes out and where the light is placed.
    • Discreet sound
    • Easy to use
    • Lots of variety in function

Care and Maintenance

Since the No. 16 is comprised of glass and a plastic bullet that detaches from the controller, clean-up is extremely easy for the toy. The glass part can be boiled, put in the dishwasher on the top rack, wiped down with toy wipes, toy cleaner, or a 10% bleach solution, or you can use just plain soap and water. The bullet and controller should be cleaned using toy wipes or cleaner and never submerged in water. You should always check the glass for nicks, chips, or cracks and never use one that has them. If sharing, cover the bullet with a condom as it cannot be fully sterilized. It is easily stored in the box it came in and is comparable with all types of lube.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

Number 16 comes in a completely non-discreet package. The box has an image of the glass toy proudly displayed and care/use instructions printed on the back. The box has a flap on the front that stays shut magnetically, but when you pull the flap back there's a viewing window that shows all the components of the toy. To remove the toy from its package, you can open either the top or bottom of the box and pull out the styrofoam cradle out. From there you can pull the styrofoam apart and remove the toy. I kept mine to store the toy in after use...it's small enough to slide under most beds or lay down in a drawer. It helps protect the toy from dust and fuzzies and keeps all the parts together.
    • Good for storage
    • Not discreet
    • Would make a nice gift

Experience

My experience with the Icicles was extremely varied. About a week after I got the toy, I went and had a VCH done, so I wasn't able to play with it for awhile, and then when I started back, I had a lot of trouble finding a position where the ears didn't clink against the metal or poke me uncomfortably in newly pierced skin. When I did manage to position it right, the toy was amazing and functioned just as it was supposed to. Luckily I'm built right to where the shape of the toy fits my body and I can get both clitoral and g-spot stimulation in the same go.
