Rondo: not sure it's worth $100, but it is a very nice vibrator!

This is a wonderful toy. The different colors are very pretty. The packaging is wonderful and all the extras that are included with Close2You toys are great. Had this toy been sent with the correct charger to begin with, I would have given it a 5 stars. Other then that, I found it to be just great. I wish the price was a little cheaper & that you could change intensity levels. Other then those things, I definitely recommend it to everyone.

Use

Rondo is a curved vibrator that is great for internal or external play. It can be used for g spot play, clitoral stimulation, or anal. The rounded handle shaped similar to a circle allows you to get a good grip on the toy and also serves as a stop for those using it for anal play. This toy is manufactured by Close2you. Rondo can be used for both solo play or partner play. Since it is waterproof it can be used in or out of the water. Just be sure the charging port is closed tightly so no water will get inside.

Material / Texture

Rondo is made from silicone. Silicone is a very soft and smooth material and is rated at the top of the safety chart at a 10. It is a body safe material, hypo-allergenic, latex free, phthalates free, and waterproof. Even more importantly it is non porous so you will not have to worry about bacteria growing all over your toy. Silicone is odor free and tasteless. This vibrator is mostly smooth but does have 4 grooves going down the shaft away from the handle. The handle is made of white matte plastic. It does also have a noticeable seam down the middle of the toy and it is definitely noticeable when using it. Although it is noticeable it isn't uncomfortable in any way. This vibrator does have a good bit of drag to it as well. Lubes are definitely recommended but not required. I do find this toy is perfect for beginners since its girth isn't all that wide and its texture isn't all that noticeable. Advanced users who aren't looking for extreme texture or intensity would probably like this toy as well.


Design / Shape / Size

The Rondo is shaped similar to a J but with not as much of a curve. It is very pretty to look at and it comes in 2 different colors, navy blue and light purple. I, myself purchased the navy blue which I have found most toys do not come in. The color is very pretty and the shape definitely makes it stand out in my collection. Since it is curved it is made to hit the g-spot nicely on most ladies.

As far as size is concerned, the Rondo is approximately 7 3/4 inches in length, 5 1/4 of which is insertable. It has a circumference of approximately 4 1/2 inches, and weighs less then 1/2 lb. The diameter is just over 1 1/4 inches so it is not all that girthy and will be perfect for beginners.

This toy is definitely not discrete, if anyone was to see it they would definitely know what it is. This toy does come with very nice packaging which I will describe later but again its not discreet packaging at all. I do however recommend this toy for traveling since it can be placed in a toy pouch and be ready to go. It is somewhat large so it may or may not fit in your purse, but an overnight bag or suitcase would hold it just fine. Only complaint on traveling you might find would be it possibly turning on if it isn't in its box.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The controls on the Rondo are on the circle shaped handle. The handle itself is white matte plastic with 2 silicone buttons. The smaller button is the power button which of course turns the toy on and off. The larger button is the function button which controls the 6 different patterns. This particular toy does not have different intensities, they are all about the same. There is also a covered charger port as well on the handle. Simply remove the cover and plug in the charger to charge your toy. The Rondo apparently comes with a European charger which cannot be used in the US so if you find you receive this charger you can either buy a plug in adapter from a hardware store or call EF and have them send you the correct charger. This toy is nearly silent and cannot be heard through a closed door.


    • Discreet sound
    • Easy to use
    • Multiple settings

Care and Maintenance

Caring for Rondo is pretty simple. Just take some water and anti bacterial soap and it down real good, paying close attention to the grooved areas. You can also use a wipe or sterilize with 10% bleach. I do not recommend submerging this toy is water simply dipping in the boiling water for a few minutes should do the trick. Although this item is supposed to be waterproof I still tend to get paranoid about completely having any electrical item under water, but that is just my personal opinion. Also be sure to check the cover for the charging port and make sure it is completely closed. I did find it slightly difficult figuring out how the actual cover is supposed to fit on it perfectly so that is another reason I will be avoiding submerging it in water.

As far as lubes, since this item is silicone only use water based lube items. Oils or silicone based could break down the material and cause damage to your expensive toy.

What about storage? Well you have 2 options! This item does come nicely packaged in a special drawer box just for it or you can place in the toy pouch that also came with it. Being that the box does have a picture of the item I would not leave it out in public unless you want people knowing your business.


    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

I have included several pictures of the packaging on this toy. I definitely love the packaging of all the Close2you products. The rondo comes in a 2 drawer chest. It opens up like a book from the top where there is a see through plastic window that shows you the toy. On the side is the larger top drawer where the Rondo lies between 2 foam cutouts that hold it snugly in place. The bottom smaller drawer holds accessories such as lubes and wipes. The box itself is white and has a picture of the rondo and also product information. The box of course is reusable.

The Rondo comes with your basic Close2you accessories including a package of lube, a purple cock ring,a toy wipe, a purple storage pouch should you choose to not keep it in the drawers, and an owners manual. It also comes with a European charger. Keep in mind if you live in the US you will either have to buy a special device to plug into your american outlets at home or call EdenFantasys to have them send you an american style charger. I did call and was sent one the next day.

The packaging is definitely first class in my book. If you have friends that like toys I would highly recommend this product for gift giving. It is just beautiful.








    • Good for storage
    • Not discreet

Personal comments

The only complaints I personally have about this toy is the charger port cover. I did have a little difficulty figuring out how to close and seal it properly. Also the fact that I was sent an European charger and then had to wait a few days to get the new charger. It wouldn't have been so bad had the toy been charged but it was completely dead on arrival and wouldn't even turn on until charged. EdenFantasys representative was just great though about apologizing for the error and immediately sent me a replacement free of charge.



Experience

Despite the charger complication I absolutely love this toy. I love the color, the shape, and the material. Although I did find the need for a small amount of lube since it did have drag, other then that it was just great. I definitely recommend this toy all buyers. The only users this might not work for are the more advanced ones needing a lot of intensity and texture.
Follow-up commentary
I have only had this a couple weeks and I have already managed to use it probably 8-10 times. It has become one of my favorite toys! Only complaint on this is the intensity kinda sucks. It definitely needs a lot more juice for my likings.. however with a little extra work it definitely gets the job done every single time!

    Nice job on this review! I really liked mine, but it was too girthy for me to insert comfortably.

    The wrong charger?! Oh wow. That would be a bummer. I have had this on my wishlist forever, but had no idea it only had one intensity. That's disappointing. Not sure I really want this one so much now, but you did say it was great and you recommend it to all users, so that makes me feel like it might really work out in the long run. Thank you for sharing.

    Too bad it only has one intensity. For such a high quality toy, you would expect more than one level. Thanks for the review.
