Dreams do come true.

This toy is definitely worth your money. It looks pretty simply, but in fact does wonders with its simplistic design.

Use

I was having a hard time finding a good toy for me, but here it is. Personally I think it is great for the shower, though make sure you have the seal right, it can be tricky (see below). I do not think this is a good vibrator for external use; however, a great tool for internal use. It has a very slight curve at the top for G-spot stimulation but don't let the small angle steer you away, it does a great job though it looks almost straight. Having the toy being jelly, I enjoy it in the shower because it seems to pick up any and everything in its path. Bed use is just as good, but be careful where you set this toy down for it will pick up every piece of dust or animal hair around it. Usually I say most toys are suited for couples play, but for this particular toy, the arousal might actually make your partner slightly jealous, so I suggest solo play.

Material / Texture

The texture of this toy was a first for me. This is my first jelly toy and I was a little turned off at first. The material is very smooth and extremely bendable the way this one was put together. However, there is a slight odor to this product; it is not heavy and only noticeable when trying to smell the product, so I highly doubt it will interfere with play time at all. The smooth texture allows for much easier movement, so it is great for both advanced and beginners who like all the other aspects of this particular toy. The toy is bendable and can almost be bent in half when trying to bend it that far. The easy bendablily of the product makes it slide much smoother than I have ever experienced.
    • Flexible
    • Light odor
    • Porous

Design / Shape / Size

Great design, worked wonders for me. The battery input is slightly odd and there are no directions to help you with setting it up correctly. It says you need two batteries, but you also need to know that the batteries need to be put in opposite directions (like you see in most electronics) and that you need to screw the cap on just as you see in the photos, with its face turned 90 degrees compared to the curve at the tip. If the two pieces are not lined up perfectly, then the toy does not get power and will not vibrate. I thought mine was broken until I figured this out, but be careful and play with it a bit at first because you want to make sure the waterproof seal stays intact at the same time. Its size I would consider slightly large, but the length to wide ratio is prefect. The toy can be easily hidden with the right carrying case. Like mentioned, the toy picks up all kinds of small particles. So yes, travel-friendly but make sure you give it a wash between getting it from your suitcase and using it.
    • Discreet look/design

Functions / Performance / Controls

There is only one function, vibrate. The dial is very easy to handle, just spin to your desired speed. The vibrations are located in the tip of the toy. You can actually see the vibrator inside the toy and it appears to be significantly large. The toy produces a small buzz while being used. So I would not suggest a dorm room or using it anywhere that is shared. Waterproof worked great though, had it in the shower and when I pulled it apart, there was absolutely no water to be seen past the waterproof seal.
    • Easy to use
    • Multiple settings
    • Powerful

Care and Maintenance

I store mine in the box it came in to try and keep it out of the "elements" (I live with cats and their hair is everywhere). It can be stored anywhere pretty easily, just give it a good wash right before use to rid it of whatever dust or small particles it might have caught during its nap. I have been washing mine with regular soap and water and it is doing wonderfully, so maintenance is a breeze with this product.
    • Easy to clean
    • High maintenance

Packaging

Packaged in a clear box with minimal instructions. The toy itself does not need instructions; however, the tricky battery compartment would be much easier understood if they had provided instructions. I would not recommend using the box it came in as either storage or gift box.
Follow-up commentary
After liking this product so much, my partner and I looked into other products like it and stumbled upon this issue with jelly toys having phthalates within some of the products. Phthalates are a chemical that can have major side effects when introduced into the body and should not be a part of any toy for internal use. We actually went to the extent of emailing the company because the information we were getting from different sources were conflicting. With that being said I have copy and pasted the emails between us and the company.

From us to the company:
I have purchased the Ashton's Sweet Dreams toy through a third party site. This and many other sites have the material for this product listed as jelly which contains phthalates. However your website lists the material as TPR and phthalate free. Since I have already purchased the product I would like to know if the material is truly phthalate free as health concerns with this substance have been raised.

From the company to us:
This product is PVC. It also is non-phthalate. By non-phthalate we mean it may contain a trace of phthalates but is not entirely phthalate free.
Hope this helps

The company was hopeful however the chemical is still scary to mess with so I have moved on to other toys just to be safe.
