Use

The Iconic Bullet from Jimmyjane is exactly that, a classic bullet vibrator pared down to its simplest features presented in a white that feels clean and timeless. The bullet has many uses, from pure clitoral stimulation, teasing all over the body, during partner play, and inserted into any toy compatible with a standard-size bullet.

This toy is too small to be effective for internal use and should never, ever be inserted anally as it can be pulled out of reach of retrieval without medical assistance.

Material / Texture

The Iconic Bullet is made of hard ABS plastic and is latex and phthalates free. The hard plastic is completely smooth and has almost no drag and no smell or taste. The singular push-button on the end is a slightly more catchy, soft material that is still quite smooth.

The white is almost clinical and antiseptic and doesn't show fingerprints unless you look very closely. Admittedly, I've dropped it a few times - but the good news is, I don't see any evidence of scratching or harm. The toy has a nice weight for the size and the construction feels secure, not cheap. The o-ring fits snugly between the main body and the base with the function button, making this toy feel secure for use in the shower or tub - just make sure the segments are screwed tightly together so no leaks can occur.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all

Design / Shape / Size

The Iconic Bullet is classic bullet size, about 2 1/2" inches long and about 5/8" wide. This will work for any toy that accepts a standard-size bullet. On the very bottom, near the function button, there are a few discreet embossed markings for legal compliance but they are hardly noticeable.



The Iconic Bullet cannot be locked for travel and does activate rather easily. It's a good size to carry in a purse, but with the slight pressure required to turn it on, I would suggest keeping the batteries separate in a baggie or very well insulated, or perhaps in a hard lipstick case with a cotton-ball to cushion the button.

Despite being the Iconic Bullet, the toy is rather discreet and doesn't call attention to itself.

The toy takes 3 LR44 watch batteries, and your first set of them are included already in the toy so you're ready right out of the box. Unscrew the bottom cap with the function button and remove the protective tag over the battery connection for first use. For replacement, the toy includes a helpful diagram of battery orientation on the inner wall.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The Iconic Bullet's one function button gives you access to three vibration levels, and a fourth press turns the toy off.

The vibrations are a good bit on the buzzy side but the vibrations are incredibly strong. This toy is as strong as my MiMi and just the tiniest bit weaker than the Tango, another bullet-style vibrator - though it's certainly much buzzier than the rumbly vibrations of those two.

I was incredibly impressed by the strength, and especially considering the watch-battery power source. I appreciated the three different levels, I'm not a fan of toys and bullets with only one vibration mode. The vibrations are strong near the motor, yet not uncomfortable near the base where I found myself holding it most of the time.

The highest level of vibration is quite loud, louder than most of the toys I have given 2 bees. However, I doubt you would hear this through a closed door, though likely through covers, so I don't feel it's quite 3 bees, just the top end of 2.

The Iconic Bullet is waterproof and holds up to splash-tests, though I have not used it while fully immersed in water. This is great for cleaning and the o-ring seal feels strong enough to stand up to use in water.

Care and Maintenance

Jimmyjane instructs to clean this toy using mild soap and water, and that's the perfect way to clean it. You could also use toy wipes, but make sure not to boil or put in the dishwasher.

This toy can be used with water-based, oil, or silicone lubricants though this is not entirely necessary with the smooth texture. The toy does heat up a bit while in use, so a cool lubricant would be pleasant and could add some sensation.

The Iconic Bullet doesn't come with storage, so that's up to you. You could keep it in a tiny toy-bag, plastic baggie, wrapped in a cloth, or even in a lipstick case. Just keep it stored in a cool, dark, and dry place away from direct contact with other toys.

Packaging

The Iconic Bullet comes in an aesthetically pleasing, informative, and entertaining glossy thick paper box. There's tons of information, including first use instructions, cleaning information, and a one year warranty against defects in materials or workmanship.



The box opens up to reveal the bullet cradled in a red paper holder that fits it perfectly and snugly.



The color scheme is tasteful, modern, and eye-catching - especially when you open to box to a rush of red with the bullet nestled in. This would make a lovely gift, though you'd of course want to wrap it. It includes good information and everything you'd need to know as a first-time user.

The box is decent for storage, though quite a bit larger than the toy and the flaps do not like to stay closed if you've opened them wide and you might have to remove the red cradle and bend them in to help a bit if you want to store it in there without them popping open.
    • Good for storage
    • Very informative
    • Would make a nice gift

Personal comments

This is an incredible toy for a great price and belongs in anyone's collection. It's great for solo or partner play, and the shape and size stay easily nestled while using a dildo or during sex. It far outclasses any bullet I've received with a toy and would be a great replacement for any of them to give those toys a bit more zing and buzz.

Experience

I was very impressed with the Iconic Bullet. I bought it because I've been looking at it and wondering if a watch-battery powered toy could possibly be strong enough for me. While it's a bit buzzier than I'd prefer, it's certainly strong enough. I think even the second setting could bring me to finish with only a bit more time. The vibrations are strong and penetrate the skin well, as well as conducting through toy material.

I'll probably use my Tango more often since I prefer the deeper vibrations, but the Iconic Bullet is great to have around. The Tango is too long to be used comfortably with all bullet-compatible toys.

I would recommend this toy to anyone looking for an inexpensive and quality introduction to clitoral vibrators or sex toys in general.
