This material of the sleeve, Rocks-Off's own IntraMed, feels spongy but is non-porous, and has a good solid feel to it while still being soft and somewhat squishy. It's a texture that's kind of hard to describe. Velvety, but smooth, soft, but also solid. It provides a good, direct outlet for sensations, and doesn't feel so squishy that you have to push it hard against yourself to get all the vibrations, the way some softer sleeves do. I also like the way it feels in your hand, smooth but firm, and you can get a good grip on it.
The bullet underneath is a plain plastic casing, with a tapered point perfect for clitoral stimulation.
Along with being odorless, phthalate-free and non-porous, it seems this new material is also "reprocess-able and recyclable", and pretty environmentally friendly. It looks like there are lots of reasons to look forward to more Rocks-Off products in the future.
There are pretty much two words to sum up the shape of my Slinky Pink; cute and simple. A simple pink color, simple classic shape, and the adorable little Rocks Off LTD simple (which I believe is an "R" and "o" curved into the shape of a heart), just slightly raised on the sleeve. The bullet inside also has the symbol, as well as the name of the bullet; RO 80MM. The bullet is bigger than most bullets you'll find, and I kind of like it that way. Slim and long with that perfect point, the bullet is my favorite part.
One downside would be it's battery of choice. Slinky requires a 1.5v N Type / LR1 battery. Personally, I have no idea what that is, so its a good thing one came with it. But when changing time comes, I might have some trouble at the store. (And I bet it's expensive.)
As with most bullet-based toys, the functions are simply On and Off. But with this toy you won't mind. It's not earth-shattering strength, but it is wonderfully powered and bought me to orgasm with barely any extra effort. And if the vibrations aren't quite strong enough for you, just pull off the sleeve and use the bullet on it's own. It's pin-point tip allows all those sensations to go just where you need them.
I don't usually hold high opinions for bullet toys, or expect them to be very good quality, but this toy proves that even the things we expect to be mediocre can be made to exceed our expectations and become a really great product. Here Rocks-Off LTD has made a toy that's simple but great in that simplicity. It's a toy you'll keep coming back to because it simply delivers. Good sensations, good design, good fun. I'd say that's a wonderful combination.
Did I mention the battery was included? They're awesome.
The bullet itself is plastic, so can be used with just about any lubricant, and the sleeve's IntraMed material works with any lubricant, with the exception of oil-based products.
The IntraMed material description recommends washing with soap and water or a 10% bleach solution. I've been using my toy cleaner and not had any problems. Just makes sure to clean both the sleeve and the bullet underneath, to keep it squeaky clean.
The box also says the material "contains anti-microbial properties" which means more fun for you with a little less worry about getting it super clean.
Slinky Pinky comes standing upright in a basic clear plastic display box, but even the box is pretty cute. With it's hexagon shape, curvy lettering design and lots of informative tidbits on the back, it;s one of those boxes you can see yourself picking up in a store and going "Oooh, I like this one...."
The box could be a little sturdier. The way Slinky stands up inside kind of makes you want to keep it stored there, but the thin plastic of the box snaps and tears quite easily, making the whole package less attractive.
I really just want to say that this cute little bullet brought me to orgasm. This little bullet brought me to orgasm when I was just idly playing with it while watching T.V., and moments later in bed. I like this toy.
I love that the bullet comes cleanly out of it's sleeve, and is adorable and effective all by itself. In fact, I like the bullet alone a little better than I like the whole thing all together.
