That's So Kiwi!

This little 'rabbit-bird' of a vibrator has some great positives: it's latex and phthalate free silicone, great for those who enjoy clit stimulation from rabbit vibrators, and is waterproof. If you're very sensitive, it'll go the distance. But those who like pressure or high power should look elsewhere. This little Kiwi is definitely more of a tease and for foreplay rather than a toy to take you all the way.

This Kiwi is supposed to resemble this Kiwi:Kiwi Bird

And not the kiwi most of us think of: Kiwi
That being said, it harbors no further resemblance to the bird than that. It's not like the creature vibrates or lights up. I think...

But that leads me into the introduction of this toy: it is a lighted vibrator (again, quite unlike the bird)! But that does make it pretty unique. The thin, pointed tip of the vibrator lights up via an LED bulb under the slightly foggy but clear silicone material. It glows a purple-hued pink and will actually keep rhythm with the vibration pattern. I'm not sure why you would want a pointer on your naughty bits during play but hey, different stroke for different folks.

The Mating Call of the Kiwi

This vibrator is meant to be used externally only. So tease your genitals, nipples, and all your secret erogenous parts, but don't insert this anywhere. There's very little danger (other than being lost in the anal canal) but it honestly won't provide must stimulation that way.

Also, this Kiwi is waterproof. I didn't believe it myself, actually, due to the fact that it lacks a rubber O-ring and the way the battery compartment closes seeming so rudimentary and simplistic. But I submerged it fully for some water play and no water seemed to get inside the compartment at all. Though let me just say that the purple-pink light illuminated the water in a pretty pink hue and that in itself was pretty cool!

The Plumage of the Kiwi

The Kiwi is designed to be adorable and unique, which is does rather well. But my critique is that the foggy silicone looks cheap and reminds me of jelly and being able to see where the plastic ends underneath it takes away from the smooth lines of the toy. I wish they had traded in the clit-light for a solid color silicone for a more attractive appearance and possibly moving the motor closer to the tip. That would fix not just the aesthetics issue but some functional ones as well.

The Flight of the Kiwi

Actually, the Kiwi bird is flightless... but follow my train of thought for a moment. This little vibrator runs on two AAA batteries that set into the compartment in their own slots. As mentioned before, there is no rubber O-ring and the only way the cap stays on is with these two very small grooves in the side. There's no threading on which to screw on the top piece, just a small twist to put it together, which is why it made me nervous to dunk it in water.

Kiwi 02

One interesting thing I did notice is that you can put the cap back on facing either way. The way I put mine on seems to be backwards from the way the Eden pictures have it. So depending on which way you want the buttons facing in relation to the direction of the pointed tip is how you should put it on for you.

But once that's done, you can get to the power. There is no dedicated on/off button, unfortunately. But at least you can click either button in order to start it up. If you press the bottom button, you actually start off with the last vibration pattern. If you press the top button (or, what I would consider the top one), it start you out with the lowest steady vibration level. It's virtually silent but almost virtually powerless. The third setting is the highest steady vibration level and it's pretty darn loud! Under all the covers I have and outside the bedroom door doesn't muffle this toy. I'd have to be playing music, the television, and maybe flushing a toilet in the bathroom for no one to be overhearing me. It's not as loud as a wand by any means, but it's still not discreet.

And what else is disappointing about this toy is that for all the noise it creates, it doesn't provide equal power either. The silicone sleeve where it's sitting on top of the plastic is where I feel the most intense vibration, which is of the more buzzy variety. But in the tip? Well... Let me get back to the vibration patterns first.

1. Fairly quick pulsation on high
2. Pulsation the reminds me of "Ta-Da!" on high
3. Triple set pulsations on high
4. Escalating pulsation from low to high with 5 levels
5. Strobing escalation followed by pulsations and more escalating strobing before starting over
6. Strobing escalation, pulsations, escalating higher, then slowly strobes back down to low
7. Pulsing up to high in three level followed by escalating strobing
Experience
The Behavior of the Kiwi

So while there are plenty of vibration patterns, decent power, and a flexible tip to this vibrator, it has one frustrating obstacle for me. Unless you position your body part of choice right on the underside of the toy's tip, you'll little to nothing. It seems that the whipping motion only travels one direction and placing my finger gently on the very tip or on the side, everything stop moving. Meanwhile the hand I hold the main body of the toy with goes numb.

So let me explain what I think the main flaw of the toy is... While the design concept is incredibly cute and ergonomic for single-handed holding, it just falls short. The toy is heftier than I expected, actually, with all of the weight in the battery compartment end. The product page lists it at half a pound! The tip is completely squishy, bendable, and hollow since the light nor the motor is located in the very end. If there was some kind of rigid inner rod or just firmer silicone or the motor being closer to the tip, it could have been amazing!

The Kiwi's Habitat

The packaging is very similar to the toy: almost perfect. It's a sturdy cardboard box with a sleek black finish on the outside and a lime green on the inside. There's a plastic mold insert covered in satin to hold the toy and the box closes with a secure magnet. For me the epic fail is the large gaping hole in the lid of the box. That's the only thing that takes away from it as a storage device. How am I supposed to keep dust and animal hair from joining the Kiwi inside the box? I am considering modding it to cover the hole though... Perhaps that will be in the follow-up review.

    @Amy - Thank you! Yeah, I know the links are broken. I need to get them replaced after the issue with my flickr account. I promise they'll be back soon (eventually).

    LOL @ the kiwi bird pic! I love the touches of humor you added despite your misfortune of having the pain in the a** toy. Lol. I thought the light up was really neat, but that tiny 'poker' just looks liked it'd only poke your clitoris and not feel very good. Since it's a tiny poker (lol) I see how it won't exactly give you a broad area to vibrate on. If that even makes sense. Lol. I loved your review! It was both adorable and extremely useful. This is actually the first time I've ever even seen this freaky kiwi. Lol. Many kudos to you for trying with it.
