Yet another classy piece of glass from Pipedreams!

The Icicles #18 is a well made and amazingly stimulating toy. It is beautiful but functional at the same time making it a fantastic G-spot toy. I really cant find anything I do not like with this toy other than the fact that it does weigh 10.5 ounces and the nubbies may take a little getting used to. What an awesome product and what a great time reviewing it!

extremely useful review
Well we ended up liking our last Pipedream purchase so much that we decided that we needed another one right away. This time we decided on Icicles #18 for a good glass G-Spot toy. We liked the craftstmanship of the Icicles #13 so much that there was not really any question of what company we would look at for our new glass toy.

Pipedreams sends out their toys in a really nice package. It arrives in a cardboard box with a magnetic flap on the front that allows you to open the front flap to view the toy through a clear plastic window in the front of the toy. As we have mentioned in other reviews, we feel that the packaging says alot about a toy. You can view the packaging and tell if the company who made put the proper amount of time into it. It appears from the package that Pipedream wants to tease the viewer to see the product but they want the front flap to close by itself with of the magnet so that the toy is hidden and protected. This says alot about the company when it is delivered in this manner.

For the most part the packaging is in black and white except for a big picture of the toy on the magnetic front flap of the box. Once the flap is opened, the entire inside of the flap is black except for the plastic see through material that allows you to view the product. The box tells the name of the company and some information about the toy. Now when it comes to discreetness, this packaging has none! If you are looking to try to keep this toy under wraps I would take it out of its box and purchase a velvet bag for it, as it does not come with a storage bag, and put it some place discrete. We personally feel the box is not a good place to store such a beautiful and fragile glass toy! Once the box is opened, you will find the toy encased in foam cut to fit which prevents the toy from moving. The combination of the box and foam makes the packaging great for storage but not so good for hiding it away from prying eyes.

Icicles #18 is made of a Pyrex Glass. Pyrex has a saftey rating of 10 because it is non porous, made of food grade material, and can be cleaned very easily. It can be cleaned with antibacterial soap and warm water or a mild toy cleaner. It can also be sterilized in your dishwasher in the upper rack if you want to go the extra mile. It is always recommened to use a condom with these toys if you intend to share them. One of my favorite things about Pyrex is its resistance to breaking. Because of its molecular structure it is very difficult to break and if it were ever to break, Pyrex doesent shatter like regular glass. Pyrex actually tends to break up in big chunks instead of splintering into small sharp pieces. This actually makes it safer than normal glass.

When you take the Icicles # 18 out of its box you can see that it is crafted with percision and artistry. It is shaped in mind to stimulate the G-Spot but can be used pretty much any way from either end. This toy comes decorated with blue nubs along the shaft of the toy with what appears to be a flower within the glass at the end of the toy. If you consider that each of these toys are hand blown the craftsmanship and time that must be involved really would blow your mind. The Icicles #18 has a length of 7 3/4 inches amd a circumference of 5 inches. It also has a diameter of 1 1/2 inches with a weight of 10.5 ounces.

The bumps are a fun change with the toy. Since the nubs are part of the glass they happen to be extremely smooth. When you find bumps on other materials they tend to be very uncomfortable due to the fact that other materials tend to catch your skin and cause irritation. The fact that the nubs are glass really makes the bumps feel great. Also keep in mind that since the toy is glass you can use either side of the toy for stimulation. We have found that the toy feels great from both ends.

I do have to say that these toys are absolutely beautiful. Glass toys are not only fun to play with but they really are works of art that you enjoy looking at.
Experience
I have been insisting on building our glass toy collection and have had my eye on Icicles 18 for a while now. It also was a toy I had to have as it always seemed to be out of stock and in high demand. I just had to have it. Unlike most G-spot toys, this was something I wanted him to experience with me the first time. I took it out of the box and handed it to the IT Guy and told him to have his way with me. With a little Maximus, the Icicles slid right in and to no suprise he had no difficulty finding my most sensual spots. The nubbies felt amazing and slightly awkward as they popped back and forth inside me. We also found out that the handle can also be fun to play with. The handle is really the same size as the other side but it has another bulb connected right next to it of the same size. So you have two big bulbs right in a row. If you want a fuller feeling with the combination of the nubs the handle side is where it is at. It was truly a glass experience that cannot compare to any other G-spot stimulator.
Follow-up commentary
Its been a while but we are back for a follow up on our beautiful Icicles No. 18. We have come to love this toy as it was one of our first glass toys. When we first got our hands on this toy we had only purchased one other glass toy and it really had not met our expectations. This toy is great on the other hand and has far exceeded our expectations. The Icicles 18 is fun for multiple reasons. The curved end helps reach the right spots, the material is great for temperature play and it has two ends one that capitalizes on the bumps and one end that is smooth. So far its been alot of fun to play with a we suggest this toy to anyone looking for a good starter glass toy. We still like it and honestly I think we actually like it even more than when we first reviewed it. Great job Pipedream!
