Tried And True

The range of vibrations on this toy makes it great for a slow build up or can provide you with that 10 second quick orgasm. The colors are lovely, the vibrations get quite strong, but it's really loud. It even comes with a case that matches the vibrator. Overall a great start to a collection or for somebody not sure about vibrators.
Pretty, powerful for one AA, storage case, not intimidating.
Can get very loud.
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


This hide-a-vibe is best suited for beginners, but can be enjoyed by just about anyone. It can be used for clitoral stimulation as well as vaginal penetration. In addition to all its solo options, you can also use this toy with a partner. It's loud, it doesn't have the most powerful vibrations out there, but for somebody who is starting to explore the world of toys, there are much worse options out there to start with.

Material / Texture

Both the vibe and the case are made out of the same plastic. Being made of plastic means that they are non-porous and phthalate-free and have a hard smooth texture. Running your fingers across it produces no drag whatsoever.

Design / Shape / Size

I'll start with the case. The design is very simple: it's a box like object big enough to hold a small vibrator. It measures 5 1/4" long and just under 1 1/2" across at any point. There is a break point just about exactly across the equator of the case, this separates the two halves. Inside there is a definitive "top" and "bottom". The bottom of the case has a round "hole" for lack of a better word that will hold the base of the vibrator in place while being stored. While the vibrator is inside it is held very securely. It doesn't bounce around and it won't accidentally get turned on.

The vibrator itself is shaped just like every other traditional slim line vibrator. It has a total length of 5", with the base taking up 1/2" of that, leaving the length of the vibrator itself at 4 1/2". It has an insertable length of 3 1/2" and has a circumference of 3 1/4" with a diameter of 1".

More experienced vibe users will probably get bored with this one pretty quick, but it's very basic and simple design make it perfect for beginners who are new to vibrators and want to test the waters.

Now while this isn't exactly the most discreet thing out there, if you keep it in the case and leave it out on accident, there's nothing about it that screams "sex toy". However if you're worried about people snooping through things you leave out, just be sure to toss this in a drawer when you're done with it.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The vibrations can be felt very easily throughout the entire toy, but almost seem concentrated in the tip. However it's really not all that discernible, especially when being used.

The vibrations are controlled by a twist dial, located at the base of the toy. There appear to be about 3 speeds, but there's a fairly gradual transition from one to the next so it's harder to pinpoint exactly where you're at on a scale, but I've tried to sum it up as best as possible.

- The first level is the lowest. It's not all that loud, but at the same time is able to offer a bit more power than I would have expected from it.

- The second is a little louder and a lot more powerful. It's still quiet enough that just covers should be able to muffle the sound should, for whatever reason, somebody happen to be in the room with you. To be safe, I would have the TV on as well.

- The third level is the loudest, and also the most powerful. And by loudest I mean kick everybody out of the room, turn the TV up, and shut the door. Most of the noise seems to come from what seems like the toy rattling itself from the inside. The highest level of vibration here is enough to make my fingers go numb from just holding the toy for a few moments.

All of the vibrations are a steady vibration, there is no pulsing or anything fancy. They seem lower pitched but still fairly audible, especially if you know to listen for it.

This toy runs on 1 AA battery. To install, simply unscrew the cap to the battery compartment in a counter clockwise direction, drop the battery in "pointy" side down, then screw the cap back on in a clockwise direction. Also note that while screwing the cap back on after installation, you are very likely to turn the toy on. Please don't be startled, this is perfectly normal. Battery life seems to be pretty fantastic so far. And by that I mean we've used this toy off and on for almost a year and have yet to change the battery.

As far as I know this toy is not waterproof. I haven't felt like risking it yet, so I would advise against taking this into a watery environment.

Care and Maintenance

Taking care of this toy is extremely easy. Because it's made of a hard plastic you can clean it by either washing it with antibacterial soap and hot water, wipe it down with isopropyl alcohol, wipe it with a toy wipe, or just shoot it with a toy cleaner. Take special care to avoid getting the controls or the battery compartment wet. Personally I just clean mine with a little bit of toy cleaner.

You should also remove the batter for extended periods of storage to avoid corrosion of the interior metal workings.


I purchased mine outside of EF and have since lost the packaging.

Personal comments

This toy is absolutely never to be used anally. It can't be sterilized, and do you really want to explain to the doctor why your hind end is vibrating?

Also taking note of not being able to sterilize, that means either use a condom if you plan to share, or just don't share.


This toy got used mostly in partner play. I think I used it once or twice on myself. Just like all the other slimline vibes like this I've had, after too much play my clit would go numb and there wasn't anything I could really do about it. Of course, at that point I've been playing for an hour or so and have had quite a number of satisfying orgasms.

Inserting vaginally didn't really seem to do anything for my g-spot, but I've always been more for dual stimulation and rely on clit playing to get me off while something is inside of me.

The range of vibrations on this toy makes it great for a slow build up or can provide you with that 10 second quick orgasm.

My fiance loved to insert this into my vagina while he performed oral. It was lovely.
Follow-up commentary
This doesn't get as much play as it could, but it always works every time we do use it. I still highly recommend this to those who are newer to toys and don't want to break the bank and want to be able to keep things a bit more discreet.
