My Little CaterpillarThe Harlequin is a silicone, splash-proof, battery operated, travel-friendly vibrator. Although I felt like the vibrations were lacking a bit, they were able to get me to climax (on the high setting). I find that the Harlequin makes a great toy for foreplay rather than your go-to vibrator.
There are ten vibration patterns:
4) long pulsating vibrations
5) short bursts of vibrations
6) three bursts and an escalating vibration
7) one long vibration followed by a quick one
8) a combination of long, short, and escalating vibrations
9) one long vibration, then three bursts, followed by one long vibration
10) two quick vibrations and then one long vibration
In order to reach the pattern you desire, you have to click the button until you find the one that you want. I found this inconvenient and annoying. My partner had a difficult time locating the button, and pressing and searching for the pattern I liked while it was in use. Also, the strength of the vibrations fell short. They were not as powerful as I liked them to be, except for the "high" setting.
The Harlequin is made out of a soft, velvety silicone. Also, the shaft has a slight give to it if you press your fingers on it, but is firm otherwise. It has a safety rating of ten, and is latex-free, nonporous, phthalates-free, hypoallergenic, and is food grade material safe. It is important to note that only water-based lubricants can be used with this toy because it is made out of silicone. In order to clean this toy, warm water and soap can be used, or a nonalcoholic-based toy cleaner/moist towelette can be used as well.
I loved the packaging. It came in a nicely designed black box with a cutout to view the toy. Also, the backing of the box has a magnetic closure, so it can be opened and closed to view the toy. Also, included with the toy are two AAA batteries which are required to operate the toy.
On a final note, the Harlequin is splash-proof. The battery compartment seals nicely, and when I took it in the shower, not a drop of water made it past the rubber o-ring seal. Best of all, it is extremely quiet.
p.s. It is a durable vibrator. I accidentally dropped it in the shower, and nothing happened. It still functions properly.
