This toy is smooth but has a lot of drag to it. It's made of pure silicone. It's plush so it picks up a lot of lint. The base where the buttons are located is much smoother without drag. It has no scent to it which is nice. I know a lot of toys have a tendency to smell funny.
It hints at what it is, without being too obvious. The size is nice at 6 inches long with a 1 1/8th inch girth. You can buy a small silk case for this toy to store it in or just toss it in with your other toys. You can travel with this toy but you should make sure to write a note saying what it is.
This toy has 10 speeds: it vibrate on high, medium, low, gradient burst, intermittent, surge, inta surge, even step, roller coaster, and pulsate. It has two buttons, the on/off button and the change setting button, both located at the bottom of the toy. You have to really push the buttons till you hear a click sound so accidental on/off or setting switch is hard to do. This toy is quiet even when used above the sheets at the highest speed. The toy performed well underwater.
This toy is easy to clean being that it is pure silicone. Take the battery out and make sure it is closed securely, and use warm water and mild soap to clean or your favourite toy cleaner. Since this toy is made of silicone it is suggested that you use ONLY water based lubes.
There was a small paper slip in the box the toy came in. The packaging was not outrageous like some other toy's packaging.
You can use the package it came in for storing the toy, or recycle it.
