The Mini Vibra Tease is made of TPR - it's more porous than silicone and it can't be sterilized, so unless you want to wrangle a condom that might be longer than the toy itself, this one isn't for sharing. It cleans up easily with soap and water or toy cleaner when you're done, and you can use it with water-based or silicone lube.
The consistency is nice and sturdy without being inflexible, and the texture is smooth. A little bit of lube and it slides right in, with enough give to let your muscles really clamp down on it.
The bullet vibe has a waterproof seal, so you can take this baby into the water with some silicone lube and put jacuzzi jets to shame. It's metallic colored but not completely smooth in texture, which helps you get a good grip on it.
My only complaint is that the toy doesn't have the narrow base that would let it stay inside, but I'm willing to take that in stride and look at it as a feature and not a flaw. It's more a probe than a plug, and as a probe it does the job very well.
It comes in friendly purple, clinical clear, and serious black. Since it's not fit for sharing without a condom, this means we can color-code them in my household. (Purple only gets used on me, clear only gets used on my partner... And, hmm... a black one, unused, in case we have company!) It fits in my hand and I've got pretty small hands, so I'd say it's discreet enough to store privately or to travel with.
This is an excellent anal toy for beginners, and as a seasoned practitioner I enjoyed it too. The tiny circumference at the tip widens seamlessly to a good, comfortable width, perfect for spreading your rear passage gently and slowly, and the vibration is just right. It's a great warm-up to more anal play, or a fun tease all on its own.
The one-click bullet vibes are always hit or miss for me. It's easy to hit that button when you don't want to, and hard to catch it just right when you want to. This one isn't bad, but if you were willing to give up the waterproof quality, you could replace with another bullet, even one of the corded ones with multiple speeds. I was happy with the one that was included.
Since the toy is so small, there weren't many options for the placement of the vibe. I'd rather the vibe didn't stick out the bottom so that I could sit with the toy inserted, but on the other hand, where TPR and vibe meet, it's always a little bit of a fight to get them unattached. At least this way, you can change the batteries quickly and easily without having to get into coaxing apart materials that don't want to separate.
The Mini Vibra Tease is easily washed with soap and water and/or your favorite toy cleaner solution, patted dry with a paper towel (I'm picky -- cloth towels leave fuzz on toys!) and then stored in clean non-shedding cloth. I use (clean!) orphan socks for storing toys because it keeps them from picking up lint and cat hair, and keeps them pretty much ready to go (though a rinse before you start is never a bad idea). Since this probe is TPR and not silicone, don't put this one in the dishwasher or boil it. It won't love you if you do. It's compatible with silicone and water-based lubes.
The packaging is small and easy to open -- it's one of those plastic holders that was meant to come apart, not one of the childproof ones that you need a chainsaw to open. It comes with basic instructions and TWO SETS of three watch batteries, which I really appreciate! It's not that I was just that enthusiastic when I unboxed it (well, I was, but anyway...) but personally I tend to steer away from the vibes that use watch batteries because they're so annoying to replace. It takes forethought and advance ordering; you can't just discreetly pick them up on your regular supermarket trip, or cannibalize them out of the TV remote in a moment of desperation. So, getting two sets was a definite bonus for me.
