Just...no.I got this solely because it was a free gift with my order a few months ago. I never actually bothered to take it out until now, just out of curiosity. Well, it's not something I would typically go for and I have more issues with it than things that I like about it. I don't think this will be in my toy collection for very long.
The remote is easily fits into the palm. It is small, at 4" long, but fits in the hand with room to control the buttons with your thumb. The bullet itself is about 3" long, with a circumference of about 3". The cord is 30", so that gives you a bit of room to work with.
There are 10 speeds to this toy, and the higher you turn it up, the louder it gets. And this thing is loud and buzzy! It's not quiet in the first place, but it just gets louder and louder when you turn it up. There are red LED lights that light up with each of your selections, for both speed and pattern.
At it's strongest, the vibrations are about a 3, maybe a 3.5 on the vroom scale, but they are very buzzy. Not deep vibrations at all. The first vibration pattern is a steady vibration. The second is a rollercoaster pattern, which goes from low to high,then drops from high to low. The third is sort of an escalating pattern. The last two are different pulsating patterns. Each of them is very loud, and very buzzy. This could easily be heard under covers, and through a door depending on how high you have the bullet and how quiet your room is.
This bullet takes 3 AAA batteries, which I find to be off-putting. My Ako only takes 2, and it is a lost better and quieter than this. For a regular bullet/egg vibrator to take 3 AAA batteries is crazy to me, it seems like such a waste. Not to mention, that this this doesn't have an actual off button. You just turn the speed down until the lights go off, then it's off. To me, that is a sign that this could be a real battery guzzler.
As for storage, like I said, the buttons can get pressed and the toy can turn on, not to mention that it seems like it would be a battery guzzler anyway. Because of that, I would take the batteries out before storing it. To me, this isn't worth the hassle of the extra measures to clean or store it.
The packaging was a plastic bag, with the name of the toy on it in bold black text. Very basic, no instructions included, not that they're really needed since the toy is easy to figure out. There wouldn't really be a point to keeping this bag for storage; it doesn't even have a zipper seal or anything, you have to tear it open.
