This toy is made of soft, smooth plastic with a somewhat velvety finish. There is wide vertical ribbing from the tip to base, which felt nice when I inserted the vibe but was not particularly noticeable once inside. It is body-friendly and non-porous, and it has no smell or taste.
I was unsure about the shape and size of this toy at first, but it is really very effective. It is a mere 1" in diameter that is tapered at the tip for very easy insertion, making it a great beginner vibe. It's insertable length is about 3-1/4", and the tip rested nicely against my G-spot when inserted.

This is a one speed, push-button vibe. It is of medium intensity, and the vibrations are on the higher end of medium (as opposed to deeper, more "thrummy" vibrations--these are a little closer to high-pitched "buzzy" vibrations). The vibrations are concentrated mostly in the first inch or so of the tip and wane to much softer vibrations at the base. The toy is fairly quiet--it could probably be heard under a blanket, but not through a closed door. This toy is also waterproof. The battery compartment is sealed tightly by a thick silver ring and kept moisture out when tested in the water.
This is a pretty low-maintenance toy. It is non-porous, can be cleaned with warm water and mild soap or toy cleaner. Both water-based and silicone-based lubricants can be used with plastic toys.
The packaging for this toy is adorable. It comes in a small plastic bottle that unscrews at the bottom that can be used for storage. Mine easily fit in my nightstand drawer. My only concern with the packaging is that sometimes the bottom of the bottle bumps the button and turns the toy on. This can be alleviated by removing the battery before storing.
