Adorable and Buzzy, but Not as Powerful as I Had Hoped...

This toy has a ton of wonderful features, but when it came down to the real test, I found that although the vibration feels very buzzy, it ends up feeling "flat". If you're looking for strictly a powerful clitoral stimulator, you may want to look elsewhere. However, if you're okay with a moderately strong vibration and want something classically adorable, multi-functional, ergonomically perfect and simple to use and maintain, this could be a winner for you!

extremely useful review
I am one of those women who NEED clitoral stimulation to orgasm. I'm always on the look-out for that perfect toy (especially one to use during intercourse) where I say "This is THE one. I will never need to even try another." So far, I've found a few that were pretty darn good, but I still find myself looking for better. I have never owned a Lelo toy before now, so I can't compare it to other models. They are all so cute and scrumptious looking and when I saw this adorable little egg-shaped toy, I knew I had to have it. Did it live up to my expectations? Unfortunately, not quite. I guess I'm just really hard to please.

Let me start at the beginning. I thought the packaging was pretty darn exquisite. I love how they match the outer box with the color of Lelo you chose (I picked pink). It's classy and boasts of all the great attributes of what's inside. The black box within is nice and sturdy. It's also very discreet being plain with only the word 'Lelo' on the lid. It's great for storage if you have the room for it or it comes with a nice little storage pouch if you don't. Also inside is a mini catalog, the warranty and an instruction booklet with versions for a plethora of different languages.

The toy itself is a super cute little critter. It's sort of a flattened egg shape and I seem to have a thing for egg shaped items (must be a throwback from my collecting years when I was a kid). I like that it's not phallic, so if the kids see it, they might not think much of it. Plus the pretty design of it makes it non-embarrassing to use in front of my hubby. It's ergonomic and fits perfectly in the palm of my hand. It's about 1 3/4" wide at the center and 4" long. The white portion is a hard plastic while the pink portion (the user end) is coated with a velvety textured silicone finish. There are (4) buttons on the white portion that control the toy.

I love that it's rechargeable, because batteries are so darn expensive and they don't seem to last very long before they start to decline and affect the functionality of the toy. Nothing worse than wrestling with changing batteries once you've gotten started! It's accurate that it takes about 4 hours to charge and runs a couple of hours off that charge - not too shabby.

You can lock the controls, so if you travel with it, it won't come on accidentally. It's easy to clean - use water-based cleaners ONLY!
Experience
This little guy is simple to operate although it may take a little getting used to in figuring out where the buttons are by feel rather than having to stop and look to change settings. Not much, but a little. I also have to press the button a couple times sometimes for it to take. There are (+) and (-) buttons to change the vibration intensity. Then there are two arrow keys to scroll through the various patterns - solid, moderately long bursts, quick bursts, roller coaster, escalation and deceleration and a really bizarre non-pattern series that kind of just goes all over the place (I have never had a toy do that). There seems to be 5 or 6 speeds although it's hard to say for sure because sometimes it "sticks" and I can't tell for sure where the highest speed is because some of the differences are fairly subtle. This toy is also incredibly quiet!

Pros: Truly, I love nearly everything about this toy - the ergonomic, easy-to-hold shape, the cute, classy look, the pretty color, the size that fits perfectly into the palm of my hand and the multiple functions. I love that it's rechargeable. And it does make a nice massager for the back or neck areas - and pretty much any other external part of your body - because of its shape (the vibrations actually feel more powerful when using it for that purpose for some weird reason).

Cons: The big one - when it came down to the intensity of the vibrations, for me it left something to be desired. It feels pretty strong when you hold it in your hand. It's very buzzy for sure. However, I found the vibrations in actual clitoral use to be fairly flat even at the highest setting. While it worked (eventually) to get me there, it took some time and some extra movement. For the money, I was pretty disappointed in the lack of power. Again, I haven't had any other Lelo toys to compare it to, but if it's stronger than all of the prior models, I'm glad I didn't buy any of those. It's also not waterproof which, for the price, would have been nice.
Follow-up commentary
This toy has definitely grown on me. I love the look and the size. The controls take some getting used to - figuring out which is which when you're thinking of other things. But that's minor. While I was disappointed that the vibrations weren't as strong as I had initially hoped, this is the toy we turn to almost every time. And it works every single time - maybe not quite as fast as I sometimes wish. But it's convenient, cute and does the job. And it still offers plenty of buzz that I don't regret buying this little guy.

    Good review, too bad it didn't pack more of a punch. I can't wait for LELO to hype up their power a little bit for the rest of us buzz queens.

    Thanks for a great, honest review. Sorry it didn't work for you, good luck in your search for that perfect clitoral vibe! Have you tried the Xtreme Pak? For people that love power I know that's a solid buy, and it's relatively inexpensive.
