Pretty Birdy

The Peacock Tickler, while a decent tickler in itself, doesn't compare to the quality of the other ticklers here on EF. Unless you like the peacock design of the feather, I'd recommend you pick a different tickler.

extremely useful review
The Peacock Tickler is a tickler toy made by Sportsheets. There is a small peacock feather which is superglued onto this plastic rod which is intended as a handle. The handle includes a small plastic cover near the top of the feather to make it look neater as well as a plastic handle at the bottom. There is only one feather at the top of the plastic rod, and the feather is a bit soft. The entire toy is about two feet long, so this toy doesn't work amazingly for really close use.

This doesn't really come in any manufacturer's packaging. EF seems to ship it with the little feather top inside of a plastic baggie to protect it. The manufacturer does put a little tag around the body of the tickler that tells you information about the tickler as well as gives you a bunch of little "games" to play with the tickler with your partner.

I've reviewed quite a few of these ticklers from Sportsheets, so I know a bit of what to expect. In that aspect, I'm really disappointed by this Peacock Tickler. For one, the plastic piece that "hides" the glue from the feather isn't as nicely "finished" as the ones on the other feathers. This one resembles electric tape in the way it looks because the upper edges of the case aren't actually finished. It's uneven as well as scratchy. The edges seem to go farther than they should too since they start to "curl" up around the feather itself. This makes the toy look a bit less "neat" and "professional" than the rest of the Tickler series.

The other sad spot about the Peacock Feather is the feather itself. The EF Picture is pretty generous to this sad feather. The feather definitely does not look luxurious or pretty - it ends up looking kinda sad. I'd describe this feather as "underweight" and scraggy. The main part of the feather looks fine, but the little feather parts that hang off the main feather are scraggly and stick out in odd directions. The entire feather is actually pretty skinny and looks sad and kinda droops a bit too. It definitely doesn't strike me as pretty as the other Sportsheets Ticklers.

The feather does still tickle despite not being quite as attractive. The feather doesn't feel as soft as some of the other ticklers though. It doesn't really tickle as much if you have your eyes open, but if you close are eyes and don't stare at the feather, it's much more of a surprise and can tickle a bit. I've found it usually works best to drag this really lightly across the skin instead of doing quick strokes. Using it lightly on the skin feels better than allowing the full feather to touch the skin. If you just drag a couple of the straggler feathers, it seems to tickle the most. So it definitely does end up tickling despite it not being as pretty.

It does have a slight sensual feel to it as well. It seems to work best when you aren't looking at it because the tease always feels better when you aren't staring at what is teasing you. The feather is a bit flimsy and will bend whichever way you make it bend.

I wouldn't recommend getting this feather anywhere near any sort of bodily fluids or lubricant. I'm not sure the feather would bounce back from that. The plastic rod is waterproof, but the feather probably wouldn't bounce back as well as there'd be no way to really clean it after use. For storage, I'd recommend storing it somewhere where the feather won't get bent - it seems to keep the bends that the feather is stored with.

So unless you really love the peacock design on the feather, I'd recommend the Ostrich Feather Tickler a lot more. It's more sturdy, the feather is much softer, and the plastic rod seems to be of a higher-quality. However, if you like the peacock design, make sure you are okay with the feather being a bit weak, the plastic rod being a bit scratchy, and the feather not looking so pretty.
Follow-up commentary
I still like my Peacock tickler, but it's just not as good as some of the other ticklers I own. The sad-looking feathers have actually become more sad-looking, and while the tickler is still in one piece, it just doesn't tickle as well as some of my other ticklers, so it's not usually my first choice to pull out if I have a choice.

    That's strange since most of Sportsheets ticklers are excellent. But hey, it happens. Excellent review, Miss Kay.

    I have been wondering about this tickler...it just doesn't look like it's the same quality as the other ticklers. I love peacock feathers but they are so fragile. I think I'll get another of the ostrich feather ticklers and be done with it.

    I love sportsheets, but I've worked with many a peacock feathers and it was pretty obvious the single feather was a bad idea on this one. They should've designed it with maybe black or other colored super soft feathers surrounding the bottom area and more peacock feathers to set up the centerpiece. Oh well...

    Is the feather a real peacock feather? The comments on the review make it seem like it is but the product page made it seem like it was not.
