Quite The Unusual Shape!

I would recommend this product to the beginner or intermediate, who has already tried the traditional vibrators. It may be a bit too flexible for the advanced user for G-Spot stimulation, but it has other features that may appeal to them. For the low price of $23.99, on sale now for $14.39, it's worth being in the toybox of surprises.

Use

This one was just a must for our toy collection. It has an unusual design to it and it also claims to be virtually silent. My wife bought this toy for us. On to the review:

The Dial A Dream#94 is made by Doc Johnson. It comes in the colors, Periwinkle and pink. My wife chose Periwinkle for our collection. It has an unique design, which was a bit baffling to me when I first saw it. It was quite different from the traditional vibes and G-Spot stimulators I have had the chance to work with.

I would put this product into the category of beginner, for the most part, but I also see benefits that could fit the more experienced users. I say this, due to the fact that it is so flexible at the tip, it may not provide enough pressure to the G-Spot of an advanced user. That was not the case with us. It worked beautifully.

This particular vibrator can do G-Spot, labia, clitoris, nipples and also some spots on the male body, such as scrotum, penis and perineum. This toy can be used for solo and couples play. Basically, anywhere a vibration feels good, this one will fit the bill. It is also rigid enough to give a back massage with, but won't work for bearing down on.

Material / Texture

When we first received this vibrator, we noticed no smell to it. There is a molding seam that divides the shaft into two parts. It isn't real noticeable to the touch, but it is visibly.

The texture feels like silicone. There is no stickiness to it, but when rubbed, gives a resistance similar to rubber. The shaft is completely smooth, except at the base, where there is a logo molded into it. The battery cover/control on ours is a slightly different shade compared to the body.. The knob, itself, has ridges in it for improved fingertip turning.

Now, the Eden site, as well as the box and Doc Johnson site say this material is silicone. Under the description at Doc Johnson, it says ABS and TPE. To err on the side of the better, I will refer to it as TPE Silicone and not plain silicone. I will explain more in the care and maintenance section.
    • Flexible
    • No odor
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

OK, for me, in the beginning, this was one strange looking toy. The more my wife and I used it, its design became more obvious.

The vibrators total length is 7 3/4 inches. The shaft is 6 inches and the handle is 1 3/4 inches long. The tip is 1 3/4 inches by 1 inch in diameter. It is comprised of two different directional tips coming out of one. The shaft, where the heads start to part ways, 1 1/4 from the tip, is 7/8 in diameter. The base of the shaft is 1 3/8 diameter, tapering to the plastic battery cover.

The design is unique, in the fact that the longest of heads seems to have much stronger vibrations compared to the shorter. For every vibration setting, there are two different intensities.

This vibrator is also good in the fact that it's flexible enough to avoid being hurt by too forceful of a push. That could be the drawback for the experienced user. The design and material also do not require a lot of lube.

This toy, being somewhat shorter, would be easier to travel, but I would still say no planes.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The vibrator is located it the tip of this toy, where the two heads start to seperate. Slight vibration is transfered to the control/handle, but not very intense. The location of the vibrations make this a great toy for the stimulation of the clitoris and G-Spot. As I said before, it may have the downside of its flexibility to advanced users.

The control for this toy is a round dial. It may be a bit hard to control, if you have lube on your fingers of the control wheel. It was designed to spin it with your thumb, when in use. It has multiple speed settings, which is nice. You can go from a teasing vibration right up to getting the job done.

I have to say, this is a quiet toy. When it's not pressed against the body, the noise is louder than a buzz on a cellphone, but when in use, it's quieter than a cellphone.

This particular toy is also waterproof. Make sure the base is fully tight, as there is an o-ring to seal water out. When we tried it in water, the battery compartment showed no signs of leakage.
    • Discreet sound
    • Easy to use
    • Lots of variety in function

Care and Maintenance

OK, now to the differences of material. If this is TPE silicone, it cannot be boiled to be sterilized. Silicone, itself, can be boiled. I would go to the side of caution. Was in warm water and soap. Use a toy cleaner, if needed.

As far as lubes go, I always recommend water-based. We always use climax-bursts-cooling for our lube needs. It is safe on just about everything.

The vibrator takes two AAA batteries. I always recommend having spares around. Also, remove if you store for any length of time. We store ours in the original packaging, but if you store in a toybox or dresses, I would recommend using a zip-lock bag.

If you share, use a condom. My advice is not to share!
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

The vibrator comes in a clear, plastic container that has two different shades of blue and white lettering. It says it is waterproof, virtually silent, silicone and a new dial control. Its country of origin is China.

It also comes with a registration card and a limited 90 day warranty. Shipping and handling to use the warranty costs $10.00, check or money order.

The box has a pull out that is shaped for the vibrator. It makes an excellent storage container for the toy. The box is 10 inches high by 3 5/8 wide and 1 5/8 deep. There is also a 1 inch top where a hole for a hook is placed.
It is in no way discreet, as the box is see-through and the product speaks for itself on its intended use.
    • Good for storage
    • Not discreet

Personal comments

When this toy was put through its battery of tests and personal uses, it ended up with high scores. It was great to tease my wife's nipples and clitoris. I also found that in some places on me, the vibrations were a nice, added touch.

It is nice that you can control the vibrations in two different manners. It makes it quite easy to do the teasing, without fumbling at the controls.

The toy, or maybe it would be better to say I, was able to hit my wife's G-Spot. Although I managed that amazing feat, I think it was just shy of what she was needing.

All in all, this toy will get a workout from time to time. In my follow-up, I'll let you know how it has been doing.

And now, what I'm sure you have all been waiting for, my wife's comments:

Experience

When it comes to misfit toys, whether it be by function or appearance, I gravitate towards them to snatch them up. This Dial-a-Dream was no different. The first selling point is the unique shape and the second is that is a shade of purple. Yes, I know Eden lists this as blue and I am begging to differ that it is not.

After the Dial-a-Dreams arrival, I immediately went to work taking it out of its package and finding batteries to put in it. There were two things with this vibe that I found interesting, upon up close inspection. First, the shape of the overall toy itself. It reminds me of a Crocus beginning to bloom its first petal or even one of those lop-sided hearts. Second, is the control itself. It is an actually a dial base, with four sets of double lines spaced even around a circle. I thought that this would be a detriment to the contol of this toy. I am still a bit half and half on this issue of detriment or enhancement.

As you are able to turn the dial easily, any lube, massage oil, or lotion may make turning the dial more difficult. We made sure our hands were free of any of the above materials during the actual use of this vibe.

The shape of this vibe may seem intimidating at initial glance, but inserting the vibe vaginally was not an issue. The shaft of the vibe has the feel of one of those stress reliever balls. It is slightly bendable, which is more pronounced in the "neck" area just below the bulbs.

Even on the highest setting, the Dial-a-Dream is relatively quiet. Slightly buzzy, but quiet. The sound is greatly reduced when inserted vaginally. For clitorial and other sensitive area play, the sound might become a slight annoyance.

The vibrations of this toy start with a slower, weaker, vibration. Turning the dial, the vibrations increase in strength. After exploring a little with this toy, when it comes to vaginally, it easily reaches my g-spot when turning the vibes taller bulb towards it. The vibrations are not overpowering and makes it a nice toy for both beginners and advanced users.

The more advanced users may enjoy the fact, that by simply turning the vibe, so that the taller bulb is towards the back, you will have anal stimulation as well. This is based off of using it vaginally, of coarse! For the beginners, this might be to much stimulation and also may be uncomfortable for the ones not used to stimulation in this area.

Personally, I enjoyed the setting at half-way. The vibrations were strong enough and there was less sound of buzzing in this setting, compared to high.

There are a few things that could be improved on with this vibe. One of them being, there is no way to tell on the dial where your settings exactly are. There are no indicator marks on the dial, that are easily visible. The other issue is, that when placing the battery cap back on, you have to pay close attention to how you do it. There is no way to tell after screwing it on where the control dial will end up. For example, on one try, the control ended flush with the bulbs laying flat. For the ease of control, you would have to keep the bulbs at there widest. On the second try, it was perfect for me. The control dial lined up along the side flush with the larger bulb, when laying the vibe flat. This would also happen in reverse, when making the control line up on the other side having the smaller bulb in line. Close attention needs to be taken, because this not only affects control during couples play, it could cause frustration during solo play.

I especially enjoyed this vibe, because of the multitude of different uses and sensations you can acquire from it. We plan on keeping this towards the top of our favorite list because of it.
