Sweet roses

In my eyes, this is a great vibrator. It is absolutely adorable, rather discreet, and packs some great vibrations. I wasn't expecting this nice of toy for such a low price, but I was pleasantly surprised in more ways than one.

I originally purchased this toy solely because I thought it was SO SUPER CUTE (I love pink, girly things, and the roses at the base really sold me!) but I was pleasantly surprised when I got it in the mail. Not only is it the most lovely vibrator I have ever seen, but it performed very well! It's great for foreplay because of its small size (it can get tossed aside easily when things start heating up!) and the vibrations are strong but not strong enough for instant climax. I like to use this toy when I'm alone to relax or if I just need a moment of quick satisfaction.

This gumdrop provided steady, moderately strong vibrations. The soft feel of the jelly outer layer makes this toy comfortable to use, and the rigid inner core makes it feel just realistic enough. Since it is a jelly vibe, it does have a rubbery scent, but I have noticed that it has diminished slightly over time. I would not suggest putting this toy in your mouth, the rubber taste is strong. The rose band at the base is cute, but doesn't offer much in terms of additional stimulation. The rather small size is nice for beginners and casual use. It's really nice to take with you on trips because it doesn't take up too much space and is a great go-to vibe. I also use it often as a clitoral massager which is very satisfying; the vibrations at the tip are much more powerful than on the shaft. This toy is rather quiet and is easy to clean with warm water and toy cleaner.

Unfortunately jelly toys can't be sterilized. You can definitely use condoms with them, or you could use a toy cover. Personally I don't use condoms with this toy. I don't share it with anyone else, so cleaning it well with soap and water is sufficient. Another reason why I don't use a condom on this toy is it's small size; but you could definitely try it! Water and silicone lubes are safe for jelly toys. The rose designs were not much trouble to clean at all, the impressions aren't very deep. For areas like that on toys I normally use a very soft bristled toothbrush(and not the same one you use for your teeth) to get into the nooks and crannies. With just regular soap and water, it comes clean in a snap.

I have had this toy for several months now and it has held up to the test of time, no dead motors or anything of the sort. Just remember to change the batteries often (just regular AAs), because the vibrations will weaken as the batteries do. It helps if you remove the batteries when you aren't using it.
Follow-up commentary
This little beauty has been very good to me. It gave me a scare the other day because I thought it broke; it just needed batteries! This gumdrop does eat through batteries rather quickly so remember to take them out when you aren't using it and change them often to avoid losing power at a crucial moment!

    "the vibrations are strong but not strong enough for instant climax" I LOVE this statement! OMG, this a great way to look at vibes that are strong, but not super strong!

    Can it be sterilized, what lubes are safe to use, and would you recommend using a condom?
  • Sir
    The jelly material reminds me of those jelly shoes that everyone had back in the '90s. I agree to editing your review and answering those questions that J's Alley asked within it! They would make your review much better.

    Also, I'm surprised that it's easy to clean even if you insert it past the rose designs. They seem a bit hard to clean thoroughly. Were they in any way, or were you able to get between the edges?

    @J's Alley-- Thanks Smile Unfortunately jelly toys can't be sterilized. You can definitely use condoms with them, or you could use a toy cover. Personally I don't use condoms with this toy. I don't share it with anyone else, so cleaning it well with soap and water is sufficient. Another reason why I don't use a condom on this toy is it's small size; but you could definitely try it! Water and silicone lubes are safe for jelly toys.

    @Sir-- Haha, I can definitely see what you mean about the jelly shoes. This vibe in particular reminds me of them because of the glitter flecks embedded in it. I'll definitely edit and add this extra info in.
