As a "velvety" plastic toy, the Little Flower passes all of my sensory tests: right out of the package, there are no manufacturing smells, tastes, or sticky residue. The matte finish gives this toy a soft, feminine feel which keeps the Little Flower from feeling cheap.
Either side of the small shaft has a vine and flower design molded into the plastic. The image is only very slightly raised which provides a pleasing aesthetic but can't be easily felt during use.
As far as a mini-traditional vibrator goes, the Little Flower hits the mark pretty well. Its small and unobtrusive design allows it to be easily stored virtually anywhere, or carried along in a bag or purse. The petite nature and straightforward design also make it suitable for those who do not have much experience with toys or who are looking for something smaller.
The single design draw-back as far as I can see is that the control button on the base bulges out slightly, which means that the Little Flower cannot stand up on end. Many users won't care, but some may prefer a flat base.
There are two speeds of constant vibration offered by the Little Flower: low and high. The low setting is a gentle vibration which is nice for foreplay and might be preferred by users who are very sensitive to vibration. The high setting is more likely to be satisfying for most users, and necessary to achieve orgasm when used for clitoral stimulation.
The function is controlled with a single button on the base of the toy. From the off position, push the button once to turn on low, again to switch to high, and once more to turn it off. The button can be difficult to push in and you may have a try a few times to fully engage it.
The Little Flower is a waterproof toy which performs splendidly when exposed to moisture. The control button appears to be well sealed, and the battery case has a silicone gasket which you can feel tighten when you close the case. When fully submerged in water while running, the Little Flower continued flawlessly. After removing the toy from the water and drying off the outside, there were no signs of moisture inside the battery case.
Hard plastic is a beautiful material because it can be used with virtually all types of lubricant. So take your pick, and get busy!
This hard plastic toy couldn't be easier to maintain. Take your pick of toy cleaners, wipes, or good old soap and water. The waterproof feature allows you to clean the toy without concern about moisture or suds entering the battery case or effecting the electronics.
Another nice feature of hard plastic is that it needs no special storage considerations. Just clean it off and stick it back in the drawer, bag, or box where you want to keep it.
The Little Flower comes with low-budget, basic packaging. A small window in the front of the paperboard box reveals the toy inside. The box sports the same floral design that decorates the toy itself. While not designed for storage, the box could be kept and used to hold the toy when not in use. No instructions come in the box, but they're not necessary either.
