Shhhhh... I'm Hunting Wabbits...As a first-time rabbit user myself, I am certain this particular rabbit would be a great choice for anyone looking to try their first one. Though I wish it were quieter so that it would be more discreet, you can't beat the price for something that does the job this well.
Powerful, Great Price, Great For Beginners
Whether you are new to rabbits or just looking to add to your collection, I'm certain this toy won't disappoint most anyone. However, it is made of jelly, so it is not suitable for some. I was a bit leery about buying a rabbit after reading so many reviews (on many rabbits, not this particular one) about the attachment being so far back that it doesn't provide much, if any, stimulation. I decided to take a chance on this one and was surprised to find that it was placed perfectly for me. With 6" of insertable length, it wasn't overwhelming in the least. With the touch of a button, the insertable end rotates just fast enough to feel amazing and is not agitating in the least. (I know the nubs can look intimidating.) There is another button to change the direction of the rotation from clockwise to counterclockwise and from counterclockwise to clockwise. The attachment is in the shape of a bird with a rather pointed-looking beak, but don't let it fool you—this little guy is surprisingly gentle. There is a separate on/off button for the attachment and a button for low to high/high to low speeds. The low speed is great for foreplay and isn't likely to be strong enough to bring you to orgasm. The high speed was quite a welcome surprise and was too much for me to handle. I enjoy using this toy for foreplay (it's how we enjoy all of our toys), but if I turn on the higher setting, I can only use it for about a minute, maybe two, before I can't take it anymore. Not that that's a bad thing—I simply don't wish to orgasm during what's supposed to be foreplay! If you're looking for a quick, private session, this is an ideal addition to any collection.
Though it is a great price for a great toy, this toy is, in fact, made of jelly. Before getting this, I read a couple of reviews that said there was a smell with this toy, but neither my husband nor I could smell anything even when we first opened the package. (Not that I'm saying anyone else is wrong, but I feel it is relevant to mention the smell is not always there, so it likely isn't very strong or lasting when it is there.) The nubs on the head look potentially painful, but I've had no problem with them in the month that we've had this. We've used it at least 10 times, and each time has been as amazing as the last, though we are always sure to use a little lube with it just to be safe. As for the beads, I loved the idea of them when we got this, but they don't do anything for me. They add to the noise level but have yet to cause any type of problem or to do anything that would make me regret getting this in the least. The bird-shaped attachment also looked intimidating at first glance, but I was very wrong. The jelly material is very soft and flexible, so you will definitely be enjoying the vibrations and not feeling as though it's attacking you. Since it is made of jelly, it is not sterilizable and will need to be washed with a toy cleaner or soap and water. Even if you make a mess of it, it is very easy to rinse and to wipe clean. The grooves for the texture don't go deep enough to make cleaning a pain.
As I mentioned, I was pleasantly surprised by the perfect size for me. The full length is only 10" while the insertable length is 6" with a 1 1/2" diameter. It's fairly light at only one pound and features a control pad with easy-to-push buttons as the base. The light ribbing and nubs are easy to clean and provide a little extra stimulation. The beads inside move well and don't seem to bunch up. (I have pushed them around quite a lot with my fingers to see if they would pinch or bunch together and cause any problems, but they just shift back to where they should be.) This toy is NOT discreet. It is very noisy and too large to hide in a purse. You could pack it away for travel, as you could most toys, but I wouldn't recommend packing it in anything someone might go through as they will not miss it.
To reiterate, the controls are located on the base and are very simple, easy-to-push buttons. The function of each button is listed beneath it. The insertable length is rotating while the attachment vibrates at one of two speeds: low and HIGH. There is one button to turn the rotating head on or off and another to change the direction of the rotations from clockwise to counterclockwise/counterclockwise to clockwise. There is a separate button to turn the attachment on or off and another button to change the speed from high to low/low to high. The buttons are easy to push, but I have yet to bump one. They have never gotten stuck for me or failed to work at all. This toy takes a surprising four AA-sized batteries, but I am still using the same set I first put in it when we opened it.
This is one of the easiest-to-clean toys that we own. No matter what lube we use or how messy we get it, with a quick warm rinse and a wipe with a rag, it is clean—though, once again, it IS jelly and CANNOT be sterilized. We have a smaller plastic set of drawers that we store our toys in. We store this with our other jelly toys. (Each is laid out and not thrown on top of each other.) This toy hasn't been one to collect lint or dust for us, but we haven't really given it the chance to. I'm sure if it were tossed on a dresser or dropped on the floor, the jelly material would allow some things to cling to it but would rinse off very easily.
This comes in a simple plastic box but is packed well—very well, in fact. When we got ours, the plastic box itself was smashed on one side, but it did not affect the toy at all. It looked as though someone packing it had dropped the box on the ground and "grenaded" the side. The plastic box is cheap, simple packaging—nothing fancy or worth keeping. It also isn't discreet in the least. While there were no naked women, etc., on the front, it was clear so you could see the toy inside. Luckily, it was recyclable.
Follow-up commentary 7 months after original review
I'm surprised, but I have to say, I still LOVE this rabbit! I've had no trouble with it at all. Not with color, smell, integrity, or anything else I would have expected. It's in such great condition that if you put a brand new one in front of me, I couldn't tell the difference. It still doesn't eat through batteries, and has just as much power as when I first got it, despite what should be considered over-use. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a rabbit, whether you're a beginner or a novice. This is one of the best buys I've made in a long time. I hope everyone else that tries it enjoys it as much as I do!
