Marvelous MiMi!

Je Joue adds a whole new dimension to the basic massage stone with its MiMi rechargeable vibrator. It's small, safe, very discreet, and pleasingly powerful! I wouldn't be afraid to leave this one laying around, but make sure it's still there when you go to use it the next time!

extremely useful review
MiMi from Je Joue is a small, portable, rechargeable, discreet, external-use-vibrator in the shape of a teardrop or flattened egg. Whether you are just beginning to explore alone or with your partner, or if you are an experienced collector of unique, powerhouse toys, Mimi provides tantalizing vibrations that can be used all over the body for a sensual massage (NOT for medical/extended therapeutic use) or for pinpointed pleasure on the clitoris. It's also fun and very safe to use in the shower or tub.

DESIGN, MATERIAL, & SIZE
Simplicity in design and visual appeal is what makes Mimi an ideal take-along toy to throw in your pocket or purse. It looks like nothing more than a massage stone and is available in 4 colors: pink, purple (my color), black, or rose.

A seamless, velvety, silicone coating (referred to as the "fascia" in the booklet) covers the entire surface, making it extremely safe to share and clean. It's odorless and tasteless. There's a small function pad at the base of the widest end, which is made of plastic and contains two very small metal buttons, which also serve as the charging contacts and on/off/function buttons. There's a decent amount of drag, so it won't slip out of your hands unless you drench it in lube. Speaking of wet stuff, you don't want to use any type of massage lotion with MiMi, since the material is only compatible with a water-based lubricant.

Mimi is not very bulky due to it's flatter design: about 2 inches wide, 1-inch thick, and 3-1/4 inches long. I like the way that it fits nicely in to the palm of my hand. It isn't heavy either, so it can be used comfortably. It's also completely solid with zero flexibility or compression.

CHARGING AND OPERATION
There are numerous additional "Do's and Don't" to read up on before you get busy, the most important to me were: #1) Don't plug MiMi in wet #2) Connect Mimi to the charging dock BEFORE plugging it in to the wall #3) Even though MiMi is waterproof, don't leave it submerged for prolonged periods.

The dock connects magnetically to the power buttons on the Mimi. Mind you, it's not the strongest connection, so place it where it won't get bumped. Leave it charge until the light turns solid red. Then unplug the charger from the wall and have fun! Turn Mimi on by HOLDING down on the "+" button for a few seconds. Cycle through 5 increasingly steady vibration patterns and 5 pulsation modes by continuously pressing the same button. Return to a previous mode by hitting the "-" button, or switch off by HOLDING down the "-" button.

The pulsation modes are: #1- Strong long tapping, #2- Strong shorter tapping, #3- Low-to-high "revving", #4 and #5- are similar to #1 & #2, but are more of a pulsing or whirring.

I found it relatively quiet, which is good if you have housemates.

CARE TIPS & PACKAGING
Nothing more is needed to clean MiMi than antibacterial soap and warm water, and yes, you can safely submerge it underwater, but not for extended periods of time. In other words, don't mistake it for a bar of soap and leave it sitting at the bottom of the tub! Again, only use a water-based lubricant.

The quality of this toy is visible even before you take it out of the box. The packaging, perfect for gift giving, is C-L-A-S-S-Y! Enclosed in a thin black paper box/outer layer is a sturdy black storage box that closes with a ribbon. It's not too large, 4x6x4, and has the "Je Joue" logo on the top side. The vibrator sits alone on top in a plastic tray, and underneath is room to store the charger. There's a direction manual in multiple languages that instructs the user on operation and care of the toy. It's divided in to 3 sections: Product Information, Safety Information, and Warranty; however, each section is translated in to multiple languages before moving on the the next section, so it is very important that you don't miss reading the SAFETY INFORMATION in your language, as I myself almost overlooked that part.

FINAL VERDICT
Mimi is a very well-made toy. My biggest dislike is that the power buttons are very small and you have to press down hard to get them to work, but at the same time, I understand why they are like that. It's a pricier purchase, but a toy that will last a long time! It also comes with a limited one year warranty, so save your receipt!
Experience
I was so anxious to use Mimi that I made the mistake of not fully reading the part of having to hold down the power button for a few seconds until the motor turned on. Once I had that part going, it was game on. I used Mimi just as I would a regular bullet, since I usually just play solo with my toys. I jumped straight over the weaker vibrations and went for the mega vibes, which did the trick within about ten minutes. Does this work better than my $20 bullet? No, not really, but it's cordless so there's no tangling, and from a green standpoint, there are no batteries.

It appears to retain the charge for a good while. I can't give you an exact amount of time, but I charged it a week ago and have used it about 4 times since then and it's still fine. I did notice an audible frequency drop when I left it on for about 5 min. Je Joue recommends not leaving it on for more than 15 minutes total.
Follow-up commentary
I love the size of the MiMi, but it's a bit harder than what I like to use to rub frantically over my clitoris, so, needless to say, I really don't use it that often.
