The Mini Koala is made from TPE material which can be cleaned very easily. Just use some soap and water and it will be nice and clean. Some toy cleaner would work well, too. Since it is TPE, it's not recommended to share this toy unless it's covered with a condom. It's also phthalate-free.
I'm happy to say this toy has no odor. I hate when you open up a package and there is a strong odor because it makes you not want to even use the toy. I was also surprised that this toy didn't collect much lint. I've had toys that collect a lot of lint and you have to constantly clean it.
The Koala is very soft at the touch. It wasn't sticky like most of the toys I have. Since the shape is of a koala, it's not flexible. The ears are about the only thing that is flexible. I would say this toy is more for beginners. The reason I say this is because it's a clitoral simulator and it's very small. Perfect for beginners!
The main design of this toy is the shape of a koala. The koala is attached to the remote by a wire. The remote and toy are very easy to hold. You shouldn't have any problems trying to keep a hold of the toy. The remote has ten different speeds and an easy on-off button. There is a small cap that you can remove and put your batteries in. It's very easy to remove and put back on. There is a printed guide to show you how the batteries go in, which is always nice to have.
I would defiantly say this toy is easy to store. It's very small, so you shouldn't have a problem finding somewhere to store it. Smaller toys are always the easiest to hide. It's also very suitable for travel. It should fit just about anywhere in your bag when you're ready to go traveling.
The controls are very easy to use with this toy. There are two buttons, one for the on/off and the other to control the vibrations. This toy has ten different functions. This would be why there is a ten printed on the remote for the vibrations button.
Vibrations are as follows: (I'll do my best to describe them properly)
1. Low, steady vibration
2. Medium, steady vibration
3. High, steady vibration
4. Vibrations that go up, up, up...kind of like escalating.
5. Short-fast pulsing
6. Fast pulsing
7. Escalating vibration and then the pulsing
8. Short-fast pulsing, faster pulsing, than steady vibration
9. Escalating followed by a steady vibration
10. Variety of everything; pulses that are low and high
All the vibrations are very quiet and if you hit the off button it will start over at the first vibration. It's a great warm-up toy!
This toy is very easy to take care of. All you really have to do is wash it with some soap and water or a toy cleaner. It's as simple as that. It doesn't collect much lint so that should make it much more easy to clean, as well. I would say you could store this toy just about anywhere. It's very small and could be put away just about anywhere.
The koala toy came in one of those plastic cases with it molded around the toy and where you can see right through to the toy. In other words, it's not discreet. It had a piece of cardboard with some writing about the toy on it as well as a picture of a koala with a tree. On the front, it says it's waterproof, which is always a plus--as well as 10 powerful functions, perfect for clitoral stimulation.
On the back of the package, it talks a little bit about the toy and its functions. It says it's made with a velvety touch and requires 2 AAA batteries, which are not included. Even though plastic cases are not always the best option, this toy was packaged very well and it wasn't damaged, so that's always a huge plus.
I'm usually not the type to try out animal-shaped toys, but I enjoyed this toy. It's great for getting warmed-up to get yourself in the mood for your partner. It doesn't have the best vibrations but it's very quiet and I love that about it. It's always a great thing when toys are not noisy.
My overall experience with this toy was great. I really enjoyed using it to warm up. There's lots of different patterns to keep you satisfied. Even though the vibrations were not the best, it was still satisfying. It's the perfect toy for any beginners!
