Use

Mimi by Je Joue is a compact vibrator that has a sleek design and unassuming shape which truly make it a 'discreet massager'.

Mimi is great for clitoral stimulation. The interesting shape makes it easy to hold and provides a broad stimulation to some of your most sensitive areas. While this vibrator is great for clitoral use, it's far from limited to only that type of play. It works great on all the sensitive areas of the body; nipples, perineum, testicles, shaft of the penis, around the outside of the anus, etc. It's a great item to use during solo play, with a partner during mutual masturbation, or by having them use it on you. Spicing up foreplay is easy since Mimi fits so comfortably in the palm of your hand.

On top of erotic uses, Mimi is also great to use as a general body massager. Use on the neck, shoulders, upper and lower back, etc. for a nice massage after a long day. And since this vibrator is so quiet, it will help you to relax since there's no super loud buzzing sound near your ears.

Mimi has an interesting shape that makes it rather apparent that it shouldn't be used internally. While it wouldn't get lost if you were to insert into the vagina, I would imagine it would be rather uncomfortable and wouldn't cause much pleasure. If you're looking for an insertable toy, check out Uma; same company, similar design. Likewise, this toy is not designed to be inserted into the anus. With no flared base, this toy could easily get lost inside of you, resulting in discomfort and a blow to your pride from an embarrassing trip to the ER!

Since Mimi is waterproof, you can take this toy straight from the bedroom into the tub or shower without any worry about water leaking into any part of the toy and causing damage.

Material / Texture

Mimi is made from firm ABS plastic and is coated with a totally seamless, buttery smooth silicone. Silicone is rated a 10/10 on Eden's material safety scale for being made from food-grade material, being hypo-allergenic, latex free, non-porous, and phthalates free.

This vibrator has no give to it at all since the whole toy is not made from silicone. The silicone coating is extremely velvety smooth and has no drag to it which is impressive considering the material type. Thanks to the lack of drag, it doesn't pick up lint like a lot of toys that are made from this material. The finish truly feels luxurious in your hands, aside from Uma (a toy from the same company), I've never felt a toy feel this incredibly silky, smooth.

The lack of texture is great for beginners and those that prefer smooth toys. Mimi glides easily over the body without even requiring the use of lubricant.

Upon opening the box, there was no smell or taste to the toy, which is always appreciated.

Design / Shape / Size

Mimi has a flat, egg like shape to it, only it's larger than a typical egg, and comes in four different colors; black, purple, lilac, and the one I'm reviewing, rose. The size fits comfortably and easily in your hand while in use, and stimulates a broad area. It's about 3 1/4" in total length and is 5" around at its widest area. You won't receive any pin-point vibrations from this toy since the tip is totally rounded, but it's great for those that prefer a larger area to be stimulated at the same time.

Toward the base of the toy is the only marking on it; the company name and logo slightly imprinted into the silicone. In the center of the logo, a small light glows while the toy is on and when charging. The base of the toy is where the three buttons are located and is also where the magnetic charger connects.

The whole toy is quite compact and is no larger than the palm of my hand. This makes it a great option if you're looking for something to use while you're traveling. The shape of the vibrator is very discreet and someone wouldn't instantly know what the toy was for unless they really looked at the charging port and were fairly advanced users themselves.


The size make this toy great for beginners since it's very non-intimidating, but is also great for more advanced users looking for a rechargeable, compact, silicone vibrator.

Functions / Performance / Controls

Mimi is a rechargeable vibrator that's simple to figure out and easy to use. The initial charge takes about the same amount of time as each charge after that; right around two hours when the battery is fully drained. Included with your Mimi, is an adaptor that attaches to the base of the toy (directly onto the buttons) using a magnetic charging clip. The clip that connects to the toy is the same color as the Mimi you've ordered.

When the adaptor is plugged in, a blue light comes on indicating that it is being powered. This light comes on whether or not the clip is attached to the toy. When the charger is clipped to the Mimi, a small light also shows up on the toy and flashes while it's charging, but becomes a steady light once the toy is fully charged.


There are three buttons in total on the base of the toy that look similar to this; (+)(~)(-). The center button is a little more difficult to press than the other two, but are much easier to press than the same buttons that Uma also has to offer. The outer buttons control the five vibration levels while the center button controls the six different pulsing vibrations. Turning the toy on is as simple as pressing and holding down the (+) button until the toy starts to vibrate. Once the toy is on, pressing the (+) button again will bring up the intensity of the toy. At any point, you can lower the intensity by pressing the (-) button, or turn the toy off by holding the (-) button down for a few seconds.

The center button is where the vibrations vary. Once you've turned your toy on, you're on the first setting; a steady vibration. The first press of the (~) button will bring you to a fast pulsation, a second press to a roller-coaster pulsation, a third brings you to a slower pulsation with a slight pause, a fourth brings you to a quick and short pulsation, a fifth brings a quick and long pulsation, and a sixth brings you to a slow and long pulsation. Once you've passed the setting you like, you can't go back. You have to either turn the toy off and back on to start at the beginning, or cycle back through them all.

The intensity levels go from a low 2 vrooms, to a high 4 vrooms; but it's not quite powerful enough for me to give it a 5 vroom rating. I have other clitoral toys that are more powerful than the Mimi, but this should satisfy most users between the varying intensity and different pattern choices. The vibrations are a little more focused on the tip of the toy, but do leave your fingers feeling very tingly, even after a short period of time. I've also noticed that when pressing down, the power lessens slightly. So for those who like pin-point vibrations and a good amount of pressure, Mimi might not be the best choice for you.
    • Easy to use
    • Lots of variety in function
    • Rechargeable

Care and Maintenance

Cleaning Mimi is very easy. Simply wash with anti-bacterial soap and warm water, your favorite sex toy cleaner, or sterilize by wiping down with a 10% bleach solution. Always make sure that this toy is dry before storing.

Since this is a silicone toy, only water-based lubricant can be used with it. Other types might cause damage to the incredibly smooth surface of the toy, potentially making it unusable.

Mimi doesn't come with a storage pouch, but does come with a very elegant looking black box that not only holds the toy safely in place, but also has room for the charger and instruction manual. This is really the best place to store your toy, but if you were to decide on something else, a small pouch or plastic baggie would work okay as well. Keep in mind that the surface of this toy should not be touching an item of similar material since it could cause damage to your toy.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

Mimi comes packaged in a very thin cardboard box that arrives in a plastic bag. The box is not at all discreet; the toy is boldly shown in full color, and has a variety of words on it that clearly make it a dead giveaway what the box contains. The information on the outside of the box is displayed in several languages. It's very tastefully done, but isn't necessary to hold on to and can be broken down and recycled.




When you first remove the storage box, it's wrapped securely in plastic. After removing the plastic, you'll see how elegant the box looks. It's far more discreet than the first box, but does have the company name in silver on the top. This black box is a much sturdier cardboard and is made well enough that using it for storage should work very well. On either side of the box are also small notches that make it much easier to remove the cover.




Once open, your Mimi sits cradled in one area of the box, while the other side has a little storage area. When your toy is removed, you'll see that the box was made so that Mimi would sit into a dip that's sized perfectly for the toy. Inside the storage area, you find the charger and information booklet. Everything you need for this toy fits perfectly inside this beautiful black box!


The informational booklet included has some information about the toy, but not as much as you would expect based on the size of it. Only 10 pages are in English, but it does include all the important information about the toy; how it's used, the limited warranty, and a whole lot of what NOT to do with your toy. The information contained makes it easy to toss the indiscreet box that the toy first arrives in.

This toy would make a very nice gift to give someone, if you first remove the thin box that surrounds it. It looks like it could contain something like a watch or something of similar size, but be aware that when opened, others might realize that it's a sex toy and could cause the receiver to feel a little embarrassed.

    • Good for storage
    • Minimal
    • Would make a nice gift

Experience

I can fully understand why Mimi is a product that so many people rave about. It is such an elegant and beautiful toy! The variety in function is wonderful, it's waterproof, and is made from some of the smoothest silicone you'll ever feel. However, as I'm discovering my body and learning more about my taste in toys; Mimi just doesn't do it for me. Broad stimulation just isn't my thing! I like to feel pin-point vibrations and while Mimi CAN get me off, it's much more of a struggle than I feel it should be.

It's an awesome toy, but just not one for my specific tastes.
Follow-up commentary
Mimi is a great product, boasting some of my favorite qualities a toy can have; it's made from silicone, is rechargeable, and is compact and discreet. However, I require more of a pinpoint stimulation to satisfy me. Mimi is a great toy for most, but the broad stimulation it provides just wasn't right for me.
