My Fat Little CaterpillarThis versatile toy gives you the option to play without the sleeve if you are not sure whether or not you will enjoy all the texture on it, as it can be remove, leaving you with a decent vibrator. Either way, you won't loose out. With this little guy's strong rumbling vibrations and reasonable price point, I don't see how you can not give it a shot.
Girth, price, removable sleeve, 2AAA batteries, quiet.
Nubs can be rough, hard to clean, hard to hold when wet.
I found this toy to be fun and exciting. The Softee can be used as a massager and the nubs make it excellent for nipple and clitoral stimulation. It can also be used for vaginal use as well, although most people may find the girth, with the added nubs, to be a little much for insertion. The nubs on this toy create quite a bit of sensation and drag when used internally, so I recommend plenty of lube for this purpose. This toy is probably not best for thrusting. I find that putting it in and letting it sit there gives an incredible deep rumbling sensation. Due to the girth and texture of this vibrator, it would not be an ideal beginner vibe for the inexperienced nor would it make a good toy for anal use due to the texture.
This toy is made of TPR silicone. It has a firm squishy feel to it. The nubs are soft and pliable. The sleeve is removable. The vibrator itself is an average vibrator constructed of hard plastic. Even if you don't like the texture and/or girth with the sleeve on, using the vibrator alone can get the job done because of its strong motor/vibrations. The toy as a whole has a very light chemical smell that you would have to have your nose next to the toy to smell. The texture does add a lot of stimulation and may not be great for beginners.
The shape and design of this toy are a great ideas. It is 6" long with 5" being uneven, bulbous, nubby enjoyment. The head is pretty large and has light nubs which become longer the further down the shaft you go. The Softee is an exquisite 1-5/8" in diameter for a wonderful sensation of fullness. The sleeve is removable, leaving a normal vibrator that is actually very nice. It is small and compact making it easy to pack and store.
The Softee's vibrations come from a spinning motor in the tip of the toy, making it excellent for clitoral stimulation. The toy only uses 2-AAA batteries that are easily inserted within the locking twist base which also doubles as the power dial, which is activated by turning it. You can easily adjust the vibration with one hand using one or two fingers. The vibrations of this toy start out low and rumbling and intensify as you turn the dial. There are no patterns just a steady vibrate when on. The highest setting is very strong. I was surprised and very happy with the strength of the vibrations. Despite the great vibes, this toy is very quiet; I could barely hear it from just 3ft away!
The Softee could require a little more care than your average toy. The sleeve makes it possible for lube and other fluids to slip under it, so I would recommend taking the sleeve off to clean the toy thoroughly. You can clean the toy with mild soap or your favorite toy cleaner and water. Make sure to leave the sleeve off until the whole thing is dry. To store the toy I would recommend putting it back in its case or a lint and dust free case, as it collects any dust hair lint or just anything around.
This toy comes in a small molded plastic clam shell container which readily reveals the contents and easily pops open by pulling apart from the top. The packaging is not bulky at all making it great (but not pretty) for storing the toy in.
Follow-up commentary 5 months after original review
We have retired the sleeve of this vibrator to the closet and no longer use it. The vibrator it came with remains in our toy drawer as my quicky go to toy. This toy was worth the purchase if for no other reason than the toys strong vibrations. Though money may be well spent just getting a nicer quality traditional vibe.
