Disappointing twirl

This toy is not worth the price, the batteries, or your time. Its poorly made, with less than satisfactory vibrations and features. It would be an expensive "gag" gift at a batchlorete party, but I would not recommend gifting it to someone for actual use.

extremely useful review
Normally I steer clear of Jelly toys, mainly because they are so porous and can't be sterilized. Also since jelly toys can't be sanitized they can't be shared, unless you put a condom or toy cover over them, but in my case I dont share. But it is not an anal usage toy, the base is not flared enough for proper safety usage, and the jelly seems to be poorly attached (see further below in the review). And cleaning Jelly can be difficult, since you cant us strong soaps on them and have to keep in a cool dark place. And on top of all of that Jelly is the worlds biggest lint/hair/dust/crumb and other icky thing magnet in the world. Aside from that Jelly Toys have a smell, a rubber smell that goes along with their rubber texture. I personally dont mind the smell too much, but its very noticeable even after cleaning.

The Cyclone was a big let down for me. When I saw it, my first thought was this was going to be a wild ride. It looked like it had all the bells and whistles to make a swiss army knife jealous. But instead, I was sadly disappointed. The first let down was the fact that it took 4 AA batteries, and provided such low vibrations. Those batteries are inserted into a removable cartridge on the back of the control panel.

As a vibrator with 13 different controls settings between the vibrator and the moving beads, I honestly expected more. The Vibarations were moderate to low, and mainly felt in the bottom shaft, where the motor is located, and couldn't or were barely felt at the tip with the moving beads. The "7 high intensity functions" as the box claims, were;
~ low vibes
~ medium vibrations, and here is where I noticed the noise. Was coming from the motor/powerhouse, and it sounded like the plastic case was loose, causing it to vibrate against itself. It was very off putting. The only way to make the noise lessen or stop was to firmly grasp the shaft of the toy. But still the vibrations were buzzy.
~ high vibrations, the noise was very noticeable, and it literally sounded like someones phone was on vibrate on a glass or hollow table. It was very loud.
~Escalating pulse from Low - High
~Pulsating Vibrations in Med-High
~Faster Pulsating Vibrations
~Fast Pulsations with a long vibe at the end.

Now I enjoyed some of the patterns more than others, particularly the Escalating one. And I enjoyed the quick on/off switch.

As for the 6 "Variable Speeds" on the "orgasmic twirling head", they are the general low/slow. Moving to high/faster moving settings, but they were so close it was hard to tell the difference between 1-3 and 4-6. Now it may seem like the package is claiming this is a "squirmy" toy, where the toy will actually tilt from side to side, but its NOT. It does not tilt, just simply move the beads around the inner part of the head of the toy. And for me I only felt 2 settings, level 1 low and level 6 high, and on the lower settings, if you applied any pressure with your hand they would completely stop. And as you can imagine the sound was quite loud, but swirling metal beads usually are not quiet. (If you ever owned or bough your child a "Furby", and you remember that mechanical sound it made when it moved or talked, thats what the beads sound like).

One cool feature the powerhouse has is that the buttons glow in the dark, making nightly fun easier. But on down side there is no quick off button for the rotation beads. You have to press the "DOWN" arrow 6 times to turn it off. If you are on a setting higher than 2 you can hold the down arrow and it will cycle down to level 1 but you still have to press the button again to fully turn off the rotations. CONTINUED BELOW-->
Experience
CONTINUED FROM ABOVE----->

The Toy itself is quite large, being 9.5 inches long with 6.5 inches of insertable length and diameter of 1 3/4 inches. Being made of jelly it really isnt that 'squishy', infact its rather solid. I noticed on my toy , and this could be a defect, but under the jelly there seemed to be a lot of "air holes" and around the base of the toy, where the jelly met the power house, it was already starting to pull away from the plastic.
This toy is also NOT waterproof or splashproof, so be careful in cleaning as well. The backing for the battery cartridge is not sealed and does not have a rubber ring to keep out water. Also I noticed that while the jelly was textured and had a nicely raised vein down the top of the shaft, the head seemed to be crooked. It didn't cause any changes in the performance of the toy, but looking at it, it just looked funny, like the shaft was twisted half way up and the head was bored and looking off in another direction.


The packaging was quite "tacky" for my tastes, with a clear clam casing. It had a pink cardboard insert, that matched the pink jelly toy, with all of its "orgasmic" features printed on the sides pointing to each one. I wouldnt recommend keeping the toy in the clam case just because it seemed to hold more "rubber smell" that way.
Overall I was disappointed in the toy. The vibrations were not that "ultra" as promised by the packaging, and were infact just loud and really took away from my pleasure time. The "orgasmic tilting head" was less than satisfactory, with its speed settings being pretty much the same. The Smell was to be expected from a jelly toy but still wasn't helping its cause.

I did use the toy "muted", with all the settings off and as just a standard dildo, and it did feel okay with the girth and size, but the fact that all those features were basically lost on it was just sad.

I also used the tilting rotational beads on my clit, as recommend by another member but I found that with pressure the beads would stop completely in the lower settings and in the higher settings they were just moving too fast for me. They werent painful, just too fast for me to actually feel the pressure and stimulation I needed.
Follow-up commentary
I still dont like this toy. They Jelly product irritated my sensitive lady bits, and the fact that it collected everything fuzzy, hairy or dusty just makes me hate it more.

    you're welcome! Remember a lot of people also have reactions to Jelly Products. Especially easily angered and sensitive lady bits! Plus I dont like the quality of Jelly, its cheap and icky.

    I've never seen this one or heard of the company. Interesting design, but it clearly doesn't work.
