Buzzy as a Bee, Not Quite Sweet as Honey

I think this vibrator may be worth it for some users-- do you want something small that you can slip into your purse and don't mind the noise of a regular buzzy vibrator on its highest setting?
What about the clicker; is it going to be an issue that it pauses in vibration when changing settings?
And lastly, what are you using it for? Little Honey is good for external, gentle to moderate stimulation, but little else.
Published:
Pros:
AA battery use, Small discreet size, Nice texture.
Cons:
Loud on highest setting, Clicker is annoying, May be too small for some.

Use

The Little Honey is primarily designed for external stimulation-- on the clit, nipples, and over the body. Because this vibrator is so small, a little less than 5" with about 3.5" insertable length, it's really not for anything more than shallow vaginal penetration. I wouldn't recommend using Little Honey for anal, either-- it's far too small in both length and diameter (1" at the "bulb", maybe 3/4" for the rest of the shaft). You could, however, use it to stimulate the area around the anus. Personally, I just kept the Little Honey on my body, rather than in. When I did use it for penetration I found her too small.

I would say the Little Honey is good for solo use and partner use. She's so small no one can feel intimidated by her! (Just so long as you and your partner don't mind the buzz...) I would not recommend Little Honey for travel with the batteries inside-- it's too easy to hit the white button clicker at the base. However, this is a fairly discreetly sized vibrator, though I do think it may be too loud at the highest setting for some hotel/motel walls.

Material / Texture

Little Honey's packaging says it has a velvety texture, and indeed it does, with a rigid and hard underlying texture (as it is plastic) that would make it good for those who need pressure. The packaging didn't mention anything about it being non-porous, but usually plastic is. This is also ABS phthalate free plastic.
There was a definite light odor of plastic to the Little Honey, which still persisted after a spin in the shower with me. However, it's not a distracting awful smell, just plastic. Little Honey had no taste that I could detect.
While this little vibrator is gently ridged along the shaft, it really doesn't add a whole lot in terms of texture, at least for my body. Once this is lubed up, it glides just as well as the next plastic vibrator.

Because Little Honey is so small and non-threatening, I'd say this is a definite vibrator for beginners. However, even me, who's really new to vibrators (this is my third) was somewhat disappointed in Little Honey as a "get me there" vibrator. She's more for foreplay than raging O's. I'd say advanced users who want a lot of power, length and texture look elsewhere. Little Honey is sweet...and not much else.

Design / Shape / Size

Design-wise Little Honey is cute and classy. It's a fairly discreet looking vibrator that fits in the palm of your hand. I felt the design would have really been something if it'd had more power, since I really liked the "pop" of the bulb. Texture-wise the ridges are more for aesthetics than actual stimulation, but more sensitive users may disagree. The velvety touch texture makes this vibrator feel great before it does get lubed up, and gives it a bit of drag.

I think even though this was a small vibrator, I would have still liked it-- sometimes you don't want the girthy giants! And personally, I loved how small and discreet this vibrator was; easier to store, hide and transport. But I still want power in my vibrators, and in this regard Little Honey fell a bit...short. Sure you can get more power (up to a moderate level) at the highest setting, but in return you sacrifice the discreet aspect...and if that's the case I'd rather have a Hitachi.
As I've said before, this would be a good gentle vibrator for a beginner or more advanced users who enjoy teasing vibrators. And you could take this toy with you during travel due to its small size, as long as you remember to take out the batteries.

Functions / Performance / Controls

Because Little Honey is such a small vibrator, the vibrations can be felt all along the shaft, though they are a bit stronger in the tip (bulb). You can change between the two speeds and "off" via the clicker button at the bottom of the vibrator, which cycles you through the vibrators from lowest to highest. However, there is a pause between each setting difference, which can get annoying, and there is no emergency off button. If someone comes home unexpectedly when you're using the low setting, you're going to have to turn it to high (with its accompanying angry-bee BZZZZZ sound) before you can turn it off.

One pro about this vibrator is that it uses AA batteries. However, a warning: take out the paper before you insert the battery! I must have been too excited to try out my vibrator when I got it, but I just slipped in my AA only to have it get stuck! Worse yet, the paper made it very hard to get the battery out since it created such a tight seal. Luckily duct tape saved the day.

There is a definite difference between the low and high settings-- one is weak and teasing and the other is moderate and more satisfying. However, there's also a noise difference, from nearly silent to cell phone-on-vibrate loud.

I'd say this vibrator is splash-proof, as it's gone in the shower with me. The package says waterproof and the vibrator has a plastic ring inside where the screw-on cap meets the shaft, but I'm not too certain about this claim. The vibrator's clicker button is pretty loose and I could envision water seeping in around it.

Care and Maintenance

Little Honey is 100% ABS plastic, which basically means it's the common plastic found in a lot of household and automobile appliances. This makes it safe to use with silicone, oil and water-based lubes, as well as easy to clean. The ridges that you can see along the shaft are shallow so gunk won't get caught in it. I've elected to keep this with my other plastic vibrator in a soft drawstring pouch. However, the packaging is decent enough that you could keep it in that. You just have to not mind putting your toys in those flimsy plastic molds.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

Little Honey came in a simple, lightweight white cardboard box that has pea-soup green abstract graphics. I'm quite glad it didn't come with naked women on the box, because then they would look like aliens. I'd say this box is pretty basic. It says how big it is in cm, that it's velvet touch and waterproof, has two functions, and uses AA batteries. It also says it's ABS plastic, made in China, and notes the color listings (blue, pink and black). On the top flap it has the usual warning: "Novelty Use only!" It also makes the claim that they're the the first company (Name: Sex Toys) to obtain a bunch of certificates "authorized by National Medical Supervisory Bureau", then says "No medical claims are warranted or implied by use of this product."
I'd say the packaging is more classy than boxes that are adorned with blonde women sucking lollipops, but it's not the prettiest of packages. You could use it to store the vibe in though.
You can recycle the box, and it does not come with a battery.

Experience

For me this is not a go-to vibrator, but it is a decently made one, especially for the price. I would make this my partner-play vibrator since it'd be good for foreplay, is small, and I won't care if we get a little rough with it.
Follow-up commentary
I'm sure I still have this, but it's been buried at the bottom of my sock drawer. It just does not put out enough power to satisfy me, and I can warm up with a better toy at a lower setting.
