Deal Me In!The Croupier is a sure bet for a good G-spot vibrator that can also be used clitorally. The control wheel and waterproof construction are what every toy should have. The fine European craftsmanship Evolved is known for is obvious with this toy. The unique shape, deep vibrations, and unique silicone construction are definitely worth the price.
Design, size, easy to control, and waterproof.
The Croupier is designed as a G-spot vibe, but because of it's shape, it's an excellent multi-tasker. I can use it on my G-spot solo, or on my clit during sex. It's a great toy for any woman to add to her arsenal.
Evolved always promises quality with their products, and this is no exception. It's 100% smooth European silicone, and is phthalates and latex free with a matte finish. The finish does have a bit of drag/stickiness to it, so hairs, fibers, and dust do cling to it. It's waterproof, and advertised as scent free. Personally though, I could smell a faint almost cherry like smell. It wasn't bad, and it certainly went away after washing and use. The texture is perfect for beginners and veterans alike.
The Roulette line which this toy is from prides itself on its interesting shapes, and this is no different. It is curved to fit nicely against the g-spot, and is bulged/swirled to add extra sensation. The best way to describe this is that they were shaping the main part of the vibe, and tossed a smaller mold on top of it. It has give to it, but is still firm enough to get the job of penetration done and done well. One thing that is particularly nice about it is that the is slightly off center so it feels more ergonomic and the handle fit my hand perfectly. This toy is definitely girthy, and the measurements speak for themselves. It's a full 8 inches long with 5 inches for insertion, and a hefty 5 inch circumference. This bad boy will fill you up, that's for sure. I think it's probably a bit heavier than most vibrators I own, weighing in at almost 1 and a half pounds.(The manufacturer's website specifically states 1lb, 5oz.) If you're new to g-spot vibes, this might take some work to get it in comfortably, but the key is using enough lube and being turned on quite a bit. For the more advanced user, the extra girth is appreciated. Now as far as hiding and being discreet, this toy is not for the shy. It's pretty good sized, and when you use the box it came in for storage, it needs a bit of room. I'm running out of room in my nightstand drawer, and I only have two Evolved novelty items in it!
This is a hard working toy. It has amazing deep vibrations centered in the last 2.5 inches towards the tip. It's centered there, but don't worry, the vibrations carry throughout the entire shaft. It's a multi-speed vibrator, and my favorite part is the scroll wheel control. A flick of the thumb can take you from mild to wild pretty quickly, and the best part is that there's no fumbling to do it. The fact that you can do so from the front or back of the toy is extremely useful. I really like the hard plastic handle with a rubber Evolved logo in the middle at the top. This is where the 2 AA batteries go. You simply twist the cap, and it pops off so battery removal is very easy. It has inner and outer rings to keep the battery compartment dry. I was able to keep a good grip on it even when it was wet, and that's a definite plus in my book! The Croupier is a semi-quiet toy. You cannot hear it through a door when it's in use under the blankets, and is virtually silent when it's inside you under the blankets. However, if you are up close to it, then yes, it's a bit noisy. I took it into the shower with me for "purely scientific reasons" as I told my husband. I love the Evolved line, and especially this toy because it's 100% waterproof, and works very well in water. I also ran some water in the sink, turned the toy on, and tossed it in for about 10 minutes, and it held up just fine.
It's made from 100% silicone, which is pretty easy to care for since it is non-porous. Since it has electrical components, I personally would not put it in the dishwasher or boiling water because I don't want to take a chance on destroying it. I run it under hot water, then use some antibacterial hand soap, wash it thoroughly, and then rinse it. I then let it air dry since it tends to pick up small pieces of hair & fibers when it's dried with a towel. As far as lubes go, I recommend a good water based lube since silicone and oil based lubes are a no-no for silicone toys. Using a silicone lube can melt the toy. If you're going to share it, make sure to use a condom on it. I personally keep it separate from other toys because that's my preference, and I also keep it in the original package since it's designed to be a storage box.
The Croupier arrived in a clear hard plasticbox, with latches on the top and bottom. It's very sturdy and air-tight. I love Evolved Novelties because their packaging is dual purpose, unlike some toys where you can't use the original packaging to store the item. They are classy enough for gift giving too. Believe me, if I got one of their items as a gift, I'd be really excited just because of the packaging and how expensive it feels. It's definitely not your cheap plastic.
I've used this solo, had it used on me by my hubby, and used it during sex. I really enjoyed it every way I tried it. My hubby had a few complaints about the toy, with number 1 being the size/weight. He said to him it was pretty heavy. However, I personally had no issues with the size/weight when I used it clitorally or vaginally. He also wasn't a fan of the scroll wheel because he bumped it once or twice with his finger while using it on me. Once again, I didn't have any issues with the wheel. I never moved speed unintentionally during use, even while it was wet. Overall, I was pretty satisfied with this item, and honestly have no complaints.
Follow-up commentary 3 months after original review
The Croupier is still in my top three toys and is wonderful no matter what I use it for. I really enjoy using it with my hubby during sex, as the design and shape work out to be quite ergonomic. Not to mention it's one of the prettiest toys I own!
