This toy is made out of food grade material with a safety rating of 10. It also has the added bonus of being hypo-allergenic, latex free, non-porous and phthalate free. There is absolutely no smell or taste to it so those with a sensitive sense of smell to toys can rejoice!
The texture is mostly smooth but the main body does have a veined/ridged design that certainly adds a little bit of stimulation for whatever part of your body that you decide to use this toy on. While they are defined enough to feel, they are not over-powering in the slightest and should be fine for even complete beginners to enjoy.
The curved head of the Petite Posh is my favorite part about this toy. It's curved just enough to add that little bit of extra stimulation while inside of you but not so much that it makes inserting it uncomfortable. The size, as the name suggests, is quite small. The insertable portion is 5" with a circumference of 4" and a diameter of 1 1/4", so if you're looking for a toy to give you a "full" feeling this is absolutely not the toy for you. But if you are a beginner or simply don't like big toys, you'll be more than pleased with the size.
My one complaint about the design is the location of the button used to turn it on. The button is located on the very bottom of the toy which means it is easily accessible while it's in use, but it also means that it's very easy to accidentally hit it while in the middle of your fun time. Having one button control all of its functions means that if you do accidentally hit it, you'll have to tap the same button 9 times to get back to where you were. It becomes less of a problem the more you get used to using it, though.
The size and relative low noise means that this can easily fit into any purse or bag (or even pocket) that you may be traveling with though as with any toy that vibrates, I suggest removing the battery before taking it anywhere.
This toy functioned exactly as I expected without any problems what-so-ever and in some cases performed better than expected. The vibrations are certainly the highlight of the toy, being more powerful than I expected as well as being more "buzzy" as opposed to "rumbly." When turned on, the vibrations can be felt throughout the entire toy but are slightly more powerful near the top/head of it.
It's fairly quiet so if you're concerned about someone hearing you a closed door or a thick cover on top of you should be all you need to cancel out the noise. Another wonderful thing about this toy is that it's completely waterproof. In fact, my first use of it came in the bath tub where I used it submerged under water for about 15 minutes without any ill effects and will continue to confidently do so.
Cleaning is as simple as everything else for this toy. Simply wash it with soap and warm water. And remember, it's waterproof so don't be afraid to get it wet! Storing it is easy as well. It's small size makes it fit just about anywhere you can think of to place it. I've found that, unlike a lot of other toys I've used with similar material, it doesn't really attract things like lint or other grungy particles so place in your sock drawer with your mind at ease.
The Petite Posh come packed in a mostly plain box with a picture of the toy on the front as well as some minute instructions on the back. Inside, the toy is wrapped in sealed plastic and also comes with an instructional booklet outlining the different vibrating functions.
The box itself is a good size larger than the toy and because of this I wouldn't recommend using it for storage.
