The Mini Mini Monkey is made of Polyvinyl chloride (PVC). The material is completely smooth (though the toy itself is bumpy), and has no discernible taste, but a very light scent. The smell is unnoticeable unless you're trying to shove the toy down your nostrils, and it seems to fade a bit with time, as well as multiple washings. The material is somewhat squishy, and reminds me vaguely of one of those squeaky dog toys. As I mentioned above, there's really no texture, aside from the shape of the monkey itself which lends some unique sensations.
The wire connecting the monkey to the remote is, I believe, plastic coated. Unfortunately, the wire is also very thin, and feels incredibly flimsy. I wouldn't be surprised if one accidental tug or kink would snap the cord, or dislodge it from the toy/remote. The remote itself appears to be made out of a clear, transparent plastic. This too felt very cheap, and honestly feels like it could easily fall apart or otherwise break. I'm seriously unimpressed with the quality of materials.
The Mini Mini Monkey is shaped like-- well, a monkey. A monkey with a cord coming out its butt cheek, attached to a remote. A monkey with a brown banana (yes, that IS bothering me). A monkey with eight feet-- or are those toes? But most importantly, a monkey with a smile. A monkey that is happy, ready, and willing to please.
Our cheerful little friend is roughly 2" tall, and 1 3/4" wide. It is attached to a 4" long remote via a 26" long wire. The remote of the toy is transparent, allowing you to see the inner mechanisms, batteries, etc. It seriously reminds me of an old GameBoy my grandma used to have. It's also a very comfortable size and shape to hold in your hand, and the dial that dictates the power level is easy to control with your thumb. The toy would be fairly easy to hide, and pretty decent for traveling. It is not waterproof (seriously, there's a decent sized opening in the remote where the cord is inserted), and should not be submerged. You'll also want to take care while cleaning this toy, as the bottom of the monkey lacks any type of covering. Flip it upside down, and you'll see the butt end of a white bullet staring back at you. Again, I'm unimpressed.
The Mini Mini Monkey runs on 2 AA batteries, which can be inserted in the back of the remote. The battery compartment is a little nifty in that the lid can't be fully removed. It's actually attached to the rest of the remote, which will thankfully prevent me from losing it. A dial on the front of the remote controls the vibrations. It has a star in the center of it, and tiny, barely legible words which read 'on' and 'off'. Turning it to the left will activate the toy, and if you continue cranking it, it will also increase the intensity.
Let me start by making something abundantly clear. This toy is not powerful. The lowest setting is pretty weak, and the highest setting is only slightly stronger. There's not much discernible difference between the speeds. At its strongest, it's only moderate in strength. The vibrations are very buzzy and soft. Definitely pleasant, but not mind blowing. It will probably be sufficient for most people, but really wasn't powerful enough for me.
The vibrations can be felt all over the toy, but are strongest near the top of the monkey's head and ears. As strange as it sounds, I actually really enjoyed the bumpy shape of the monkey while in use. The body of the toy gives you a few different types of stimulation to be had. The head is smooth and rounded, and covers a surprisingly large area. The ears work nicely for more pinpoint stimulation. And the face and feet provide some very interesting texture.
The Mini Mini Monkey is compatible with both silicone and water-based lubricants. After you're done monkeying around, be sure to wash this little fella with some warm water, and antibacterial soap. You could also use your favorite toy cleaner instead. Take care not to submerge the remote, or the monkey itself under running water. If you want to be on the safe side, use a wet, soapy rag to wash him up. Dry completely before storing.
The Mini Mini Monkey came in a clear clamshell case, molded to fit the remote and uniquely shaped bullet. No instructions were included with the product. Minimal details were included on the packaging, such as what batteries it takes, what the material is, and the fact that it is "multi-speed". The largest, main portion of text reads, "Everyone loves a monkey and everyone loves a powerful little multi-speed bullet too! The Mini Mini Monkey...tickles your fancy, stimulates your clitoris...perfect for serious sex or just monkeying around!" Information on obtaining a warranty for the toy is also stated on the back. I saved the packaging to use for storage, as it keeps the toy safe and the cord free from getting tangled or damaged.
I'm really torn about this toy. There are a few good things about it, and then some not so good things. I can't say I love it, can't say I hate it. It's just.. meh. Neither here nor there.
