A Gentle Flower!

The Petite Flowers vibrator is extremely flexible and soft. It makes a great "first toy" and also a toy for a person whose playtime becomes a bit rough. For more experienced users, this toy will get things started, but may not be enough to finish things off.

Use

OK, my wife and I received this as a free gift from Eden. My wife just had to give this one a try, even over the ones that we personally ordered. I think it was due to the saying,"Designed by a woman, for a woman". Anyway, on to the review:

The Petite Flowers is a product by Doc Johnson. It is made for both solo and couples play. It is also waterproof, so don't be afraid to use this in the shower, tub, or pool.

This particular vibrator is extremely flexible. There is no solid shaft of any kind, inside the body of this toy. It is not made for anal play for two reasons. There is no flared base, and the shaft is too flexible.

This is also part of a line that has daisies and roses on the shaft, instead of just hibiscus. It also comes in six different colors.

This vibe can stimulate the clitoris, nipples, labia and may also be able to touch the G-Spot, due to its flexibility. It would not work well, if you have an all over body massage in mind. It also may stimulate the scrotum and perineum on males, depending on thier individual sensitivity.

Material / Texture

This vibrator is made from TPE and plastic. TPE is a co-polymer or mix of polymers(usually rubber and plastic) that are more of a cost to manufacture, due to the fact that poorer grade fillers do not work with them, but are much easier to mold than rubber itself. They are also susceptible to melting at higher temperatures above the point they lose their rubber like behavior.

This toy is latex and phthalate free. It is also Hypo-allergenic, so anyone should be able to use this one. It is also more porous than silicone toys.

This vibrator comes in six different colors and three different patterns. we have the pink hibiscus, a free gift from Eden. There are small flowers that follow on top of a swirled shaft.

There was no smell to the material, when it arrived. The texture of the material is similar to a latex feel, offering resistance similar to a balloon, when rubbed. It is also extremely flexible, allowing the shaft to be bent in half, with little force and no stressing of the material.

I would have to say this one is for the beginner. Its soft, flexible body allows a few stronger than needed thrusts, without any pain or damage.

Design / Shape / Size

This particular vibrator has a total length of 7 5/8 inches long. The base is 1 5/8 inches long and the shaft is 6 inches long, which is also the insertable length. The diameter is 1 3/8 inches at the base, but tapers to the tip. Each of the swirls measure approximately 3/4 inch in width and the shaft has 21 leafs, or flowers, on the swirls.

The Doc Johnson logo is printed in silver just above the control knob. The base is completely smooth, with the control knob at a 90 degree angle from the base. The knob has a rubber base, with plastic ridges and a center for easier finger grip. The knob is only 1/8 inch off the base, but tapers to be level with the base. The knob is also 13/16 in diameter.

I would put this vibrator in the beginners circle of toys. It can also fit the person whose partner is a bit over-exerting in the thrusting department, as this toy has no solid core. The design is great for clitoral stimulation, but would better suit a tease, than to complete the entire job, itself.

I would also not recommend this one for air travel. In a suitcase or a larger purse on a car trip would work just fine.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The Petite Flowers vibrator is a variable vibration toy. You can set the intensity of the vibrations. The control knob rotates from its lowest setting all the way up to high. The control knob does have to be turned almost a quarter turn before it starts up. From its off setting to high, it's about half a turn.

This particular toy has a disadvantage. Since there is no solid inner core to it, the vibrations are weakened as they pass through the material. This may lead more experienced users to steer clear. The bullet is located near the tip, approximately 3/4 of an inch in. There is also no real vibration felt at the base, even on high.

This vibrator is also waterproof. Yes, I tested it with good results. There was no diminished function under water, and my wife tested it in the shower. I would say that is probably where this toy will get most of its use, with us. It's more of a get ready toy for us, than a get up and go toy.

The noise is also on the quiet side. I would put it as less than a battery operated shaver. You would not be able to hear it through a door, and it is just barely audible on its own under a heavy blanket. Inserted, there barely is any noise to it.

Care and Maintenance

Care and maintenance is fairly simple. This toy takes 2 AAA batteries. The cover must be fully tightened, or it will not operate. Also remember to install the batteries with one positive up, and the other, positive down. Remember to remove the batteries, if you store this toy for any period of time.

If you intend water play with this vibrator, make sure the o-ring is in good working order.

This toy is compatible with water based and silicone based lubes. Do not boil this toy! It can be cleaned with soap and water, or if needed, a toy cleaner. Remember to use a condom if you share. I recommend not to share.

Due to the ability of this material to collect dust and lint, I would recommend storing in a plastic zip-lock bag, or you can store it in the original packaging, such as my wife and I choose top do. There are no other requirements for storing this toy, exept to remove the batteries and store it clean and dry.

Packaging

The packaging this toy arrived in, also the place where ours is stored, is a plastic box. It opens on top and is3 7/16 inches wide, by 1 7/16 inches deep and 8 7/16 tall. There is also a flap on top that is 1 inch tall with a hole for a hook.

The box is see-through, so by no means discreet. It lists the manufacture, Doc Johnson, and states it is waterproof, non-toxic, phthalate free, and swirl hibiscus. It also says, "Designed by a woman, for a woman".

There is no directions on the box, or an instruction manual. The only thing on the box is that you must close the battery cap tightly.

Personal comments

When this toy arrived, there was some issue to getting it to operate. Most of that was due to the fact that when they stated tight, they really mean tight. If the cap is a bit off, the toy will not function at all. The other issue, be it a small one, was that it takes a full quarter turn to get this one to even start.

The material this toy is made from, combined with the fact there is no solid shaft inside of it, does weaken the vibrations quite a bit. To us, it was more for getting in the mood, rather than taking my wife to climax.

I wouldn't count this one out for those who are new to the vibrator toys, and also the ones who can become a bit rough during playtime. This toy offers a bit of protection against too forceful of a thrust, due to the fact the material is soft and extremely flexible.

Experience

This was not one that I went out and bought, but this is one of the more unique vibrators that I have now added to my collection.

After the package arrived, I was struck by the claim on the box "Designed by a Woman, For a Woman" and knew I had to test it out immediately. This soft sleeve Petite Flowers Viberator has many textures, that I first had to feel out with my hands. There are the spirals that begin at the tip and carry through the shaft to the control base. The 21 "Hibiscus Flowers" start on the towards the tip and spiral down, each one raised. I was amazed at the fact, you can actually bend it at the middle to a 180 degree angle. It is very flexible, but yet when you apply pressure to the tip, it seems sturdy. The material has a "squishy" effect to it, especially the middle. The tip is where the bullet is located and also where the strongest concentration of vibrations are located. You can feel the vibrations down the shaft, but the decrease considerably by the time you hit the middle and very faint at the base, just above the plastic control.

The material is somewhat transparent, meaning you can see the bullet and the batteries through the sleeve, when looking close at it. This vibrator is a multi-speed, but I didn't notice a significant difference between low and high. The one thing that is noticable is that it is barely audible. I could barely hear it when I turned it on. This is something that I love about this vibrator.

I am going to mention two things that I found not so wonderful about the toy, keep in mind this is before I even used it. First, there are no instructions on the box or on the vibrator itself that explain battery placement. This was frustrating because i did not want to ruin the vibrator by doing it wrong. I must have lucked out because I put one battery (+) down and the other (-) down, then screwed back on the end cap. It worked eventually (I will touch on this particular issue in a moment). The box does warn you to "Close Cap Tightly", but nothing about batteries or what might occur if you disregard the warning. Now, for the other issue I wanted to touch on. After putting in the batteries, I began to turn the dial slowly. Nothing happened. It didn't even have the faintest vibration until after I turned the dial a full 1/4 turn. This could lead many to believe that the thing don't work if they don't continue to turn the dial.

After having said all that, I enjoy using the tip for clitorial, nipple, and other sensitive areas during play. Since, there is not much difference between high and low, I don't feel the need to fiddle with the control dial all that much. The textures of the spirals and the flowers gives added stimulation to all these areas, as well.

The material that this is made from, does have quite a bit of resistance to it when pulled across the skin, so I think lube is a good recommendation when using for the above stimulation.

The vibrations are not strong, actually they are rather weak. I think a beginning user of vibrators is who would benefit the most from this. When the vibrator is used vaginally, I didn't notice to much of the textures. I could feel them and the vibrations, but it was not pronounced or powerful. This again is another reason why I think beginners would appreciate this viberator more.

I do like the softness the material has, as I don't have to worry about it hurting me if it accidentally hits wrong during our play. I do like its non-intimidating look, feel, and size. This vibrator claims to be waterproof, but I very rarely use these in the tub. I will agree that it is "splash-proof", but be sure the battery case is securely screwed on before putting it near water.

Again, I think this would suit the first time user or inexperienced user. The advanced users would probably be disappointed in the vibrations that it puts out and that the speeds are not varying by much.

This is a pretty addition to our collection, but I don't see us pulling this one out continually. This will probably be used more when I am feeling that I need to have a "I feel pretty, oh so pretty" moments.

    Just got one and I wish it had a bit more firmness to it. Other than that I am hoping the wife likes it.
    Wonderful review.

    Thanks for the review! I'm getting this one as a free gift as well.
    It looks fun, but after reading that it's not very firm I'm a little afraid that I may not like it as I like my vibrations *strong* lol.
