My Ugly Little ToyThis is a fun kit but it takes a bit of skill to pull off in a pleasing manner. It would be nice if there were more colors available or more silicone in each kit. All in all it's a cute idea that with a few tweaks could be a great idea. As it is it's great as a fun bachelorette activity or something similar.
Takes amazing creative ability
The vibrator works just like a typical AA battery plastic vibrator can be expected to work, and after the silicone dries it's usable, but I dunno - I am just disappointed that it turned out so badly. This might be perfect for someone who works with clay and has good hand strength. I thought I had good hand strength given that I perform massages on a regular basis but this defeated me and made my hands hurt.
It's a great idea and with a bit of tweaking it could work for the average user but as it is I was really not wanting to use the darn thing after making it. Maybe I am a prissy bitch but it's just ugly...my fault entirely, but still.
The vibrator, itself is hard plastic and pretty run of the mill. It's a turn dial based traditional vibrator. With the silicone covering it should be 100% non-porous but on my vibe there are thin spots and divots all over the silicone finish. The texture of the silicone shell is odd and it does provide some interesting sensations.
The vibrator is about 5 inches long and the girth is gonna vary with how much silicone you place around the vibrator. My sleeve is rather thin in places and thick in others. It looks rather cool from the backside though.
The vibrator is sized like a clitoral vibe or a very short insertable that isn't anal safe without an Enhancer. It's easy to slide into a sock drawer after it dries or a bedside table. My ugly little friend will get noticed if I leave it out...and I just might because it's so ugly it's almost cute!
My toy is nowhere near discreet, it's not even in the same zip code as discreet. It's pink and yellow, mottled, has handprints and thin spots- it is a discussion piece! There is a way to buy more silicone in different colors online and I might investigate this option and create a better sleeve for my little friend in the future.
I would suggest very quickly working the silicone and setting compound in both colors and then mildly kneading the two together then fitting the silicone around the toy. You have to be quick or the silicone becomes too stiff to work with and you need gorilla hand strength to even cover the darn vibrator. I tried to get all creative but ran out of time. The instructions say to draw up an idea before starting but it would seem my idea was too complicated. Still, it was fun...
The toy takes one AA battery and is about as strong as you would expect one AA battery to put out. I like the fact that the dial base is tight and doesn't change during use easily. It is rather noticeable, noise-wise, but nothing outrageous.
Ok, so I tried the toy with the silicone sleeve and the thin spot on the top of the toy where the seam didn't close easily tore open. So I am going to order some more silicone for the toy and try again later. I'll post pics when I do because I expect the next toy to be MUCH better looking.
The toy isn't waterproof but it didn't leak when I washed it in the sink, so at the very least it is splashproof. I just wouldn't dunk it in the tub or pool.
I store mine on my dresser because it is fascinatingly ugly and I'm weird like that. It can easily fit in a small toy bag or box but the packaging doesn't really double as a storage medium. I have spot tested the silicone for lube compatibility and it seems to work just fine with silicone lube. If you manage to create a masterpiece you might wanna use water based lube just to be safe and sure. At the very least a quick spot test will answer any questions you might have.
