Velvety cutieThis is a very simple toy that I think most beginners will enjoy. Despite the low price, the toy doesn't feel cheap in your hands and it's reliable long-term. Users who are very concerned about the noise level may want to go with something rated two bees.
The toy is very average in performance and design. The shaft is average sized and the velvety plastic feels nice against your skin. The vibrations can be felt through the whole shaft, but more so at the tip. The vibrations are a bit rumbly and louder than I'd like, but they should be enough to please most people. The toy feels great with or without the vibrations on. I can't find much to not like about this toy, but my favorite thing is that it is waterproof.
I like to take mine into the bath/shower and wash it under running water. It still works great even after it has come in contact with water. However, this toy does tend to have a problem with the battery cover cracking, which could weaken its resistance to water. To prevent cracking, I'd suggest storing it with the cap screwed all the way off the toy to reduce any tension put on it. This toy will last you quite a while so by the time it wears out you'll most likely have added more to your collection.
I think this toy is reliable and enjoyable. The toy and the packaging it comes in are so cute and simple that it's not going to scare anyone away. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a simple first time vibe. If you're looking for something quieter or with a higher material rating this is not the vibe for you.
