Great starter vibe for beginners. Great back-up vibe for toy connoisseurs.
I love luxury vibes, but someone starting out needs quality options at a lower price point. I would never recommend a beginner use a poor quality or low powered option, as it might put them off sex toys forever. The Bottle Rocket line by Evolved is a great choice for beginners. I've culled most of the cheap toys from my collection, but Apollo is still in my naughty drawer because I still use it. It's a great value, and I think highly of it.

Looks Aren't Everything
An elegant looking yet affordable clitoral vibrator. It might be perfect for those who like pinpoint stimulation and don't need a ton of power, but it didn't work for me
The Bottle Rockets Apollo is a pretty and compact vibrator that works better as a clitoral stimulator than vaginally due to its small size. It uses one AA battery which provides moderate vibrations up and down the length of the toy. Apollo has only one speed and an easy-to-use push button on its base that can be turned off accidentally. While it won’t send you blasting off into orgasmic bliss, it will likely put a smile on your face.
Waterproof, phthalate-free, doesn’t use watch batteries, attractive styling, quiet.
Not too powerful, only 1 speed, easy to turn on/off accidentally, may be too small for some.
