Welcome, Spring!

The MiniVibe Spring is a high quality, rechargeable vibrator with a neat magnetic charging system. It is completely waterproof. The vibrations range from gentle to strong and are comparably quiet. The design is pretty to look at and comfortable to use. Many people will enjoy this toy from Fun Factory, whether your're buying your first vibe or adding to a collection.

Use

Fun Factory's Minivibe Spring vibrator is a small vibrator which is best used for external stimulation. Some may like it for shallow vaginal penetration. Fun Factory advises against anal play with this toy because it is not designed with any kind of flared base that will keep the toy outside your body.
It is perfect for self play or use with a partner. Because it is fairly compact, the Minivibe Spring is not an ideal toy for thrusting or deep penetration. You may find it to be perfect for teasing or warming up.

The velvety finish and stronger vibrations also make this a nice toy for body massage. Especially with a little lubrication, the silicone glides effortlessly over sore muscles. This toy may be a good choice for some travel situations since it needs to be charged and the batteries cannot be replaced (it can be hard to charge toys discreetly). There is also no travel-lock mechanism, so in a bag or suitcase the toy could be turned on accidentally.

Material / Texture

Like many other Fun Factory toys, the Minivibe Spring is made of a high-quality silicone shaft with a hard plastic charging base. The silicone is non-porous, phthalates free, hypo-allergenic, food-grade material, and latex free, making this a safe and healthy choice for almost anyone. A very nice feature of this quality of silicone is that is doesn't have any manufacturing smell, taste, or tacky feel.

The shaft has a few modest bumps in the form of flowers on it, but once the toy is vibrating, they are all but impossible to feel. The designs look nice, but don't produce any extra stimulation.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Velvety

Design / Shape / Size

The MiniVibe Spring vibrator is compact, easy to hold, and easy to use. Because it measures in at only 3.25" of insertable length, it is un-intimidating and may be appealing to folks who are new to toys or who just aren't looking for deep penetration.

While the toy itself is small and could be easily concealed, it may be a little harder to hide while it's charging. Since the charger is magnetic, you can't just plug it in a toss it in a drawer, lest the charger be jostled and lose its connection.

The MiniVibe Spring is a pretty toy, with vibrant colors. Fun Factory's new "Click 'n' Charge" magnetic charging system means that the toy is 100% waterproof (really, no gimmicks here!) and doesn't ever need to have the batteries replaced. The watertightness comes from the fact that there are no openings where a charger is plugged into the toy and no compartments that can be opened.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The MiniVibe Spring has 9 vibration settings which range from very gentle to moderate-high intensity. This is no jack-hammer, but on it's high settings it does provide strong vibrations which will be strong enough for most people. The vibrations can be easily felt throughout the shaft, and are not localized in any one point.

Despite the strong vibrations, this is a fantastically quiet toy. On its highest setting, you may just be able to hear it over a blanket, but probably not if there was an air conditioner running in the background.

The controls are not wholly intuitive, but can be easily mastered. There are only two buttons on the vibe, which are marked with a "+" and "-" sign respectively. To turn the toy on, you hold down the "+" button for a couple seconds. The toy turns on to a very gentle vibration. You may adjust the intensity of vibrations by stepping up and down (click the appropriate button once) or holding the button you wish while the vibe moves through the settings seamlessly. You can also turn on a "roller coaster" setting when you reach the highest vibration setting and hold the "+" button down. To turn the toy off, you must cycle to the lowest setting and then once more click the "-" button to turn it off.

The MiniVibe Spring could not be more waterproofed. It is perfect to use practically anywhere you wish.

Care and Maintenance

One of the main features of this toy is its magnetic "Click 'n' Charge" recharging method. Ideally, you just click the magnetic charger onto the base of the toy, and wait for the light to turn off, indicating that it's finished. This does not always bear out in reality though, as I found that the charger needed to be positioned "just so" on the vibe, or else it would lose contact and stop charging. I checked on the toy several times while charging and had to adjust the connection twice.

Additionally, there is some confusion about the indicator lights when charging. The charger's instruction manual says that while charging the charger will pulsate red and when complete it glow steadily. However, the toy's manual says that it will glow steadily while charging and then turn off when complete. I found the second to be accurate; but a problem with this indicator is that the light turns off both when the charge is complete and when the connection is broken. So you may think the toy is done charging when you really just have a poor connection.

A beautiful feature of the MiniVibe Spring is clearly that it is completely submersible and waterproof. Therefore, it is exceptionally easy to clean between uses (soap and water work just fine).

One downside to this toy is that like many other silicone toys, it collects lint and debris easily. This can be limited by drying it with a lint free cloth after cleaning and storing it in it's box or wrapped in a lint free cloth.

Another downside to silicone toys is that you cannot use silicone based lubes with them, or you may ruin the finish of the toy. However, you can use virtually any other type of lube you like with the MiniVibe Spring.
