The Shane's World Pledge Party is made of plastic. Plastic is rated an 8 out of 10 on the Eden Safety Scale and is nonporous and body safe. Being nonporous means that you can disinfect it and share it with others because bacteria can't live inside the material, and being body safe means that it doesn't contain any nasty chemicals that can seep into your body.
Plastic is very smooth, which means that it has little drag and is not a lint magnet. Because it's so smooth, lube is entirely optional with this toy. If you do want to use lube, silicone or waterbased are both fine with the material.
This toy comes in 4 bright colors. Each color comes with four white tips. The tips are also made of plastic and have no give at all to them. The rigidity is good, because it allows for the user to put as much or as little pressure as they need.
Underneath the attachments, there are three metal circles. Metal is also nonporous and body safe if you decide to play with this toy sans tip. The metal feels a bit colder than room temperature, but the plastic is not cool to the touch.
While all of the tips are smooth, some do have point and ridges to add stimulation. There are no seams on the tips or the toy that can be felt during use, though there are circular indents on the tops of the attachments.
In total, plastic is a good material for both beginners and advanced users. It's body safe, and the rigidity allows for the user to put as much or as little pressure as they like.
The Pledge Party is of very similar design to other pocket rockets, but is just a bit smaller. The smaller size makes it good for people living in the dorms (like the name implies) or who don't have much storage space. It also makes it better for traveling.
Without the caps, the Pledge Party is about 2.5 inches long. With the rounded cap it's 3 inches long, and the other three caps put the length somewhere in between. There is really no insertable length to this toy, because it is not meant to be inserted.
There is a small ridge on the tip where the different tips slide on. The whole toy comes apart halfway down to allow you to insert the batteries. It is not hard to put the batteries in, but if you twist it too far when turning the toy off, it can accidentally pop open.
There are 4 tips. The first tip is the rounded tip. This tip adds the most length to the toy, and is very smooth. It's good for blunt clitoral stimulation and for body massages.
The second tip is the small spiky tip. This has multiple small, short spikes. These are quite sharp and firm, especially if you put a lot of force behind them.
The third tip is the super spiky tip. This has fewer spikes, but they are much longer. If you want something that can actually cause pain, this tip will be the best bet. It is not able to break the skin.
The fourth tip has several flat, raised circles on it. This is also good for clitoral stimulation and body massages, but offers a flat surface unlike the first tip.
If you left this out on the table, it looks like a traditional sex toy. You should keep this out of sight, especially if you have company who don't want to see your toy collection. The small size does make this a nice choice to toss into a suitcase or over-nighter.
The toy VS a pen:
The battery compartment open:
This toy is very simple in function. It's not complicated and is easy to use, but it's also a bit of a hit or miss toy. If the one function is too strong or too weak for the user, they'll be reaching for something else to get them off.
You control this toy by twisting the center. If you twist it one way the battery compartment pops open, but if you twist it the other way it turns on to the one setting. Because of this, you need to be careful when turning it off in order to not open it.
One issue with this toy is that there are no arrows telling you which way to turn it to open it or turn it on. Often pocket rockets have this, which helps them to not fall open when you're in the shower and potentially get ruined.
The one setting that this toy offers is about 3 vrooms and 3 bees. While you can slightly control the intensity by using different tips, if 3 vrooms is too strong or too weak for you, look elsewhere. It's loud enough to be heard over the shower or through the door if your house is very quiet.
While it is pretty powerful, the vibrations are very buzzy. They also tend to really transfer to your fingers, so it's not the most pleasant toy to use for extended periods of time.
In total, this toy is easy to figure out, but only has one setting and is pretty loud. While it does have a lot of power for the small size, the way that it accidentally pops open almost ruins the 'waterproof' claims of this toy.
The Pledge Party is a very easy to care for toy. While the nubs could collect gunk if you insert them, because this is an external toy they are easy to wash off under the tap. The toy itself is waterproof, so you don't have to worry about washing this carefully. You can use soap and water, a toy cleaner, or even an Eden toy wipe. Because the plastic is so smooth, you can get away with just washing this after each use if you keep it in a clean place.
If you want to switch users, you also can wipe this down with a 10% bleach solution. This will prevent the spread of bacteria and infection by killing any germs that may not have died with normal washing methods.
This toy is compatible with all materials, so you can toss it in with any of your other toys. While it is easy to store by just tossing it into a drawer, the small heads can be a bit tough to keep track of. This toy is also compatible with all types of lube.
The Pledge Party comes in minimal packaging. It is a plastic clamshell, and is resealable. You can easily see the product through the front of the packaging, and it is not at all discreet about what you're getting.
The front of the package has a 'sorority girl' taking off her clothing. While she's not completely naked like some packaging features, it's still not tasteful. There is also the name of the toy and the line that it's in. The girls clothing matches the color of the toy.
On the back is some very basic information. It states the material of the toy. You also can see the two sets of watch batteries that this toy comes with. There are additional instructions included on battery insertion and care inside of the packaging.
Because of the design, this is both bulky and not discreet for storage. While it would not be bad to wrap up and give as a gift, it does not give off an air of quality.
While I have tried a few Pocket Rockets in the past, this one is by far the cutest. The bright color and small size make it great to take with you or hide just about anywhere. While it is the cutest of the ones I've tried, it is also the most likely to pop open during use.
Even though this toy is waterproof (it has an o-ring), the fact that it has no arrows like most pocket rockets do, telling you when it's 'open,' 'off,' or 'closed,' it's super easily to accidentally open when turning it off. If you're a super cautious person this won't be an issue, but I don't trust myself to take this into the shower.
If you're looking for a super cheap toy to try out or to take on a trip with you, this would be an okay choice. While I usually recommend something you can use both internally and externally for a first toy, I wouldn't try and talk you out of getting this to start your collection.
In total I am giving this toy 4 out of 5 stars. It comes with batteries, has some power, is small, is made of a safe material, and is very easy to use. While it does open easily and is a bit loud, I don't feel that I should dock two stars for those issues.
