The Flame is made of pure silicone. The silicone is smooth, however, it does have a few ridges built into it. It is porous free, phthalates-free, latex-free, and hypoallergenic.
Overall the design of the Flame is nice. I like its small shape, and the slight ridges can be a nice bonus. I am honestly a fan of smooth toys, and this one offers smoothness, with gentle soft ridges that actually enhance the toy, even though I tend to find ridges a drawback on most toys.
The Flame has come in a pretty red color. It has 5 inches in length, with 3 1/4 of them being insertable. It also has a diameter of one inch. The small size makes it perfect for travel, and while it isn't exactly a discreet looking toy, it is easy to hide in a drawer or a bag.
The Flame has 11 cycles, including steady vibration, escalation, pulsation, and roller coaster vibrations. It has two buttons, the top one changes the cycle you are using while the bottom one turns the toy on and off. It takes a single AA battery and is waterproof.
While the flame is small and convenient to take with you, it isn't the quietest. You may want to make sure that you have music or the TV on for background noise to help cover the sound or running water would work perfectly. It is a little louder than most cell phones on vibrate.
The Flame is waterproof which makes it easy to clean with soap and water or your favorite toy cleaner. It is also easy to store, however as with all silicone toys please store it in a separate bag from other silicone toys and avoid using silicone lubricants with it as this could damage your toy(s). Water-based lubricant is the best option for silicone toys.
The Flame comes in a small clear plastic box. It comes with instructions and information on the toy. While you could gift it to someone, I'd make sure to give it to them privately as to not embarrass them.
