Better Than Bamboo By Far!If you're looking for a G-spot vibrator that delivers light clitoral vibrations, the Zini Zook is for you. It's unique, quiet, silky-smooth, and has more features and vibration patterns than you could ever imagine. "Zook" and "luxury" are synonymous due to its rechargeable capabilities, silicone material, and gorgeous LED light display. If you don't mind a toy that isn't girthy, don't pass up the Zini Zook. It's not just beautiful; It's a powerful toy that is deserving of its price tag.
- High-quality silicone
- Light-up display
- Tons of features
- May not be girthy enough for some
- Not entirely waterproof
This fancy toy isn't just got g-spotting, though. The head of the toy can be used directly on your clitoris, if you're looking for stronger vibrations than the clitoral attachment can offer. In this sense, you could also use the head for other parts of your body, such as your nipples. This toy is also safe for anal because if the clitoral attachment didn't stop you (and I congratulate you if you can make it past it), the control console should. However, since the toy is meant for g-spotting, the insertable portion isn't very long, and it may not be very satisfying anally if you like length.
The Zook is perfect for solo time, but it can also be used by couples. For example, you could insert the toy into your vagina, and just lay back and relax while your partner works the controls. This can really add to the experience because you won't know when the vibrations will change, and what's going to happen next. This toy claims to be waterproof, but I'd say it's more of a splash-proof toy. I'm not sure I would want to risk water seeping into the charging port, even with the plug covering it. The booklet confirms that it is a splash-proof toy, rather than a waterproof toy. In the beginning of the booklet, it states that it's waterproof but later on, it says it's splash-proof. I would rather trust the later statement and not ruin my pricey toy.
Being that it is made of silicone, it is hypoallergenic, latex-free, non-porous, and phthalate-free. Silicone is a high-quality, food-grade material that is anti-bacterial in nature. Silicone can normally be sterilized by boiling, but this toy cannot because it is motorized so do NOT boil this toy. You can, however, wipe it down with a 10% bleach solution. Once sterilized, this toy should be fairly safe for sharing, so long as you're comfortable with the possibility of bodily fluids mixing.
The texture of the Zook is insanely smooth. This is my first silicone toy so I'm not sure how others feel, but from what I can tell based on other reviews, the smoothness of this toy is something special. It is so velvety soft and luxurious-feeling, that the first thing my boyfriend and I did with it was rub our hands all over it. I cannot stress how great this toy feels. Because it is so smooth, lube isn't really necessary but if you do use lube, a little will go a long way, due to the toy's non-porous nature. The silicone doesn't attract hair and dirt like some toys, and any that gets on it is easily brushed off. There are a few small ridges on the shaft near and on the clitoral attachment, but these are purely decorative and not felt once in use. The ridge on the G-spot head, however, is felt so if you like some texture, this toy is good for you. If texture bothers you, then you might want to look elsewhere. The ridge didn't bother me and in fact, I believe it added to the experience.
The curve of the G-spot head works for me. This is my first G-spotting toy and I don't quite have the technique down, but this toy definitely gets me in the right places. The clitoral attachment also hits my clitoris fine, but due to the flexible nature of it, it doesn't apply much pressure. This isn't good if you need stronger pressure on your clitoris to get off, but this is good in the sense that this toy will work for bodies of all shapes and sizes. Since the motor isn't located in the clitoral attachment, it can be bent back very far, so don't worry about if it will fit you or not.
The Zook weighs 6 oz. The full length of the toy is about 8 3/8". The insertable portion is 3 1/2". The G-spotting head has a width of about 1 1/2" and a circumference of 4 1/8". It is curved at 23.5 degrees. The thinnest portion of the Zook has a width of 5/8" and a circumference of about 2 2/8". Unbent, the clitoral attachment sticks out on the bottom at a length of 5/8" and on the top at a length of 1 3/8", but flexibility can make it bend to farther lengths. The length of the cord used for recharging is about 4' 11" without the jack, and the part you plug into the wall. Plugged into the wall (excluding the metal bits that go into the outlet), it will stick out about 3 3/8".

Comparison with the only other rabbit vibrator I own, the Classic Rabbit Pearl
Once you get the hang of all the different functions, the Zook is incredibly easy to use. You can control the whole thing using only three buttons, a plus (+) button, a minus (-) button, and a mode (o) button. Pressing the plus (+) button once turns the toy on. From there, you can press the plus (+) button to increase the speed four times, making the toy have five speeds/strengths in all. Holding the plus (+) button for two (2) seconds turbos the Zook instantly to its highest speed. Pressing the minus (-) button decreases the speed, and holding the minus (-) button for two (2) seconds turns the Zook off, regardless of what speed or pattern you're on. When you press the mode (o) button, that's when you get to the fun part of the Zook.
There are fifteen (15) different vibration patterns to this toy, all with their own LED light color so you can clearly see what pattern you're on, in addition to feeling it. This really helps you remember your favorite settings, by remembering the colors that go with them. The colors and patterns are hard to explain, but I've tried my best to do so. It's better to just see for yourself!

Besides the stated, there are even more functions to the Zook. Holding the plus (+) button for two (2) seconds while the toy is on, a pattern will turn the LED light colors on or off. When the toy is off, you can put it into Travel Lock, by holding the minus (-) button first, adding the plus (+) button, and holding them both simultaneously for two (2) seconds. When the toy is in Travel Lock, it won't accidentally turn on and won't be able to be used until you do the same thing again to turn the Travel Lock off. Trying to use the toy while its in Travel Lock, will result in nothing more than the LED light showing red. This is great for travelling (obviously), and also for storage. Finally, you can check the battery charge when the toy is off, by holding the mode (o) button for two (2) seconds. The LED light color displayed shows you how much power the toy has. These colors also correspond to those displayed while the toy is charging.
Blue - 100% Power
- Charging/Not Charging
Green - Over 95% Power
Light Green - 70%-95% Power

Orange - 10%-50% Power
Red - 0%-10% Power
- Not Charging
Red (Blinks Ten  Times Then Shuts Off) - 0% Power
Important note: As stated before, I don't really think the Zook is waterproof so I would not submerge it. It is, however, splash-proof and you should be able to clean it without too much worry about ruining it. Just make sure that the plug is firmly inserted into the charging port before you start cleaning it.
The only lube that's compatible with the Zook, as with other silicone toys, is water-based. Oil-based and silicone-based lubricants will degrade your toy, so make sure to keep them away from your toy. You also have to watch out for your Zook touching other toys. If it touches other toys for a while, depending on the material (including other silicone toys), they may both "melt" and you don't want that to happen. It is best to keep your Zook in the box it came in, the pouch provided, or a plastic bag or similar method to keep it isolated. Do not store the toy in direct sunlight or extreme heat.
Since the Zook is rechargeable, there are no batteries necessary. When your Zook starts getting low on power, simply plug it in and let it charge. When you first receive your Zook, charge it before even turning it on. I can't stress that enough. This, as well as charging your toy before it's completely drained of power, will help to prolong the life of your toy. While it's charging for the first time, take the time to look through the booklets the Zook comes with, and familiarize yourself with its controls and functions. The average charge time usually takes about two hours, and you'll be able to use your toy for about two to three hours, before it needs charging again. This information is based on the booklet provided, and it seems to hold true to life. It cautions not to let your Zook charge for more than 24 hours, but you really shouldn't charge it more than is necessary, anyway. To prolong the life of your toy, you should try to charge it after every 1 1/2 hours of use, or 60 days of non-use.
Inside the box, you'll find something similar to a clam-shell case that will be holding your Zook. Simply raise the top by pulling on the attached ribbon, and you'll be able to take your toy out. If you take this entire plastic piece out, you'll find two multilingual booklets (one quick-start guide and one informational user manual), your recharging cable, and a toy pouch. The booklets are very informative and tell you everything you need to know in eight different languages. The user manual also has information on the one-year warranty that comes with every new Zini toy so make sure to keep your receipt (if you have one) and the serial number of your Zook. As far as I can tell, the serial number only exists on the cardboard sleeve that covers your Zook's box so make sure not to throw this away, at least until you've registered your Zook on the Zini website. The toy pouch that comes with it has the same pattern as the box and your Zook can fit in it nicely. I, however, don't use it for that. I store my Zook in the original clam-shell case, and I use the toy pouch to store three of my smaller vibrators (Passion Bullets Dual, Xtreme Pack G-spot Bullet, and High Intensity Bullet) and the N-battery that one of them takes (though I'll probably throw in the other batteries soon, as well). Surprisingly, there is still even a little more room left in the pouch. It's a pretty great pouch and a lot bigger than it looks.
I love my Zook but I'm a little disappointed in the weak vibrations of the clitoral attachment. I don't have any other Zini products, but if the Ran works like the Zook, I wish I had gotten it, instead, because then I could just bypass the whole "moving the clitoral attachment aside for a better vibrator" part. It has a slightly different design but I assume they're pretty much the same, besides the lack of a clitoral attachment and different color choices. The Zini Hua is very much like the Zook, as well, but with a bigger clitoral attachment. I'm not sure if it's bigger because the motor is located inside, but if so, I definitely would choose that toy over either of the previously mentioned, after doing proper research and seeing if it is of the same quality as the Zook.
