A perfect first toy indeed

MiMi is a cute little vibrator with a lot going for it. Its small and easy to hold and at the same time has strong vibrations. It lends itself to a variety of uses. Its only flaw is that its buttons are difficult to depress.

Use

The instructions for MiMi say that its "designed to be the perfect introduction to solo and couples play."

Its a reasonably strong clitoral vibrator. Its best use for me was to give an addition boost to G-spot stimulation sessions by holding it on my lower abdomen. I found that this increased both level of sensation and orgasm intensity.

It would also serve well for partner sex. Its so small and easy to hold. It won't get in the way even if its slipped between two people.

With its small size that fits easily in your hand, MiMi would make a terrific travel vibe. The buttons don't lock but are too difficult to press for it to accidentally activated.

Material / Texture

MiMi is made of a hard material covered with silicone. Two small metal buttons are visible at one end. It has no scent. It collects lint like all silicone products. Only water based lubes are appropriate to use with it if lube is needed at all.

Design / Shape / Size

I can't read the name MiMi without thinking of either this Mimi or a former boss who some referred to as the Dragon Lady. So, third time's a charm. This MiMi has redeemed the name.

MiMi is about three and a half inches long. It looks like a somewhat flattened egg. Its only about three quarters of an inch thick. Its covered almost completely in silicone. Only the two control buttons on the end and a small amount of plastic around the buttons aren't silicone-covered.

The word "JeJoue" and their logo are imprinted on one side.

It fits nicely in the palm of one hand and is easy to hold and control.

The buttons are MiMi's only design flaw. They are almost flush with the end and take a bit of effort to press. They were probably designed that way for looks and so that if you hold it with the button end pressed against the palm of your hand, you won't accidentally depress them. Trust me, there's no way to accidentally change MiMi's settings. The buttons require enough pressure that it almost hurts to depress them.

Mimi's design doesn't lend itself to quick speed or function changes during use. I've tested that it can be done with one hand, but in practice I always use two.

Functions / Performance / Controls

MiMi arrives fully charged and ready to use. It holds its charge for about two hours. Recharging it takes and hour and a half. It doesn't heat up during charging despite the warning about that in the instructions. A light under the silicone covering flashes during charging, then glows a steady red once its fully charged. The same steady red light glows when its in use.

While it doesn't heat up during charging, MiMi becomes quite warm with extended use.

Two buttons control its on/off status and allow you to change its vibration function. One button has a plus symbol, the other a minus symbol. Press the plus button for two seconds and it turns on at the lowest steady vibration setting. Pressing the plus button again moves it through the remaining vibration modes.

1)low steady vibration
2-5) increasing levels of steady vibration
6) on 1 second, then pause
7) fast pulse
8) roller coaster
9) fast roller coaster
10) even faster roller coaster

Pressing the minus button returns it to the previous vibration mode unless you're on mode ten, where a brief press of the minus button does nothing.

Pressing the minus button for two seconds turns MiMi off. MiMi does not remember the last setting you used. It will start on low steady vibration each time its turned on.

MiMi is moderately noisy at the higher vibration settings, but isn't rattly. At its highest steady vibration mode, MiMi is just slightly less strong than the Mystic Wand at its highest setting, which is much stronger than I expected from a vibrator this small. The vibrations are neither buzzy nor deep, but somewhere right in the middle.

Care and Maintenance

MiMi is completely waterproof which makes taking care of it easy. If you use lube with it, make sure its water based lube. It can be rinsed or washed without worry.

It doesn't come with a storage bag, unfortunately. It looks like you're expected to store it in the luxurious box it comes with. I leave it tucked into a little spot between the mattress and bed frame.

Packaging

The packaging for MiMi is quite luxurious. MiMi arrives nestled inside an attractive thick black cardboard box that opens at the top and closes with a black ribbon tie. If you pull on the ribbon tab attached to the molded plastic piece she rests on, you'll see an instruction booklet underneath. Hidden under that is the charger.

This black box is shrink wrapped and housed inside a thin cardboard box, which itself has plastic wrap around it.

The instructions are in multiple languages and are well written. The safety instructions amusingly use the word "whilst" everywhere you would expect the word "while." "DO NOT use MiMi whilst it is charging." Quite endearing.

Experience

I've used MiMi during multiple sessions. It took several sessions before I was able to finish with MiMi alone. I'm not sure whether this was because I was temporarily desensitized from using vibrators so much this week or something about MiMi. MiMi is reasonably strong, so I'm assuming its the former.

Since the buttons are not easy to press, I find that its best to adjust MiMi to the setting you want before you start and leave her there.

In addition to clitoral stimulation, MiMi can also be used as an all over body massager. You can easily hold it in your palm and move her across your body or someone else's.

Possibly her best use, for me, is to press her on my lower abdomen to increase sensation while I'm using a mechanical G-spot toy. MiMi is easy enough to hold with one hand to make this practical. Then right at the moment of climax you can move MiMi to your clitoris. The extra vibration improves the entire experience.

I've tried other vibrators, but MiMi is the most suited for this purpose so far. The Mystic Wand is too bulky and hard to control with one hand. The Magic Wand is also too bulky and ties you to the wall since its not cordless. Form 2 would be perfect if it weren't for its experience-ruining glitch. Voila is the right size and shape, but is a little weak.

MiMi has turned out to be a nice little vibrator that I plan to keep beside my bed always.
