The Little Honey Grooved is made from that lovely, velvety feeling, hard plastic. It also has a small metal ring where the screw cap meets the body, and the end button is covered in something flexible and rubber-ish.
The vibrator is the size of a large bullet (something like the High Intensity Bullet) but it is not bullet shaped - it's end is gently rounded but it is grooved all over with vertical ridges. It is small - about the width of my thumb and as long as my little finger (and I have medium sized hands). The Little Honey takes one basic standard AA battery through a screw cap at one end (no watch batteries or N cells!!!). The screw cap is backed up with an o-ring, so the Little Honey is water resistant and can safely go for field trips into the shower.
The grooves on the Little Honey provide some very interesting texture when the bullet is used to massage sensitive body parts, and they match well with the velvety-ness of the plastic. As well, the grooves make this bullet very easy to remove from holes in silicone toys, because they prevent a vacuum from forming in the hole.
The Little Honey clicks on through a depressed push button in its base. A single click for low, a second for high, and a third to take it to off again. The neat thing about this button is that it is impossible to trigger with anything broader than a finger tip - so its actually a pretty safe vibrator to toss haphazardly in a purse without it going off on its own. The push button is easy to use and is not easily triggered by mistake during use.
The vibrations come in two frequencies, (very) low and (very) high, which are centered at the tip of the vibrator. The high is intense for a single AA battery vibrator. Don't quote me on this, but I think its the best output I've ever seen from a single battery. The noise this vibrator puts out is also very reasonable - easily muted under covers.
Soap and water (battery removed) should suffice for keeping this toy clean, and a good soak in 10% bleach solution (10 minutes at least) will get it to a very thorough level of sanitization. Special care should be paid to the ridges on the toy when a quick clean is being done. Being hard plastic, this vibrator is compatible with any and every type of lube. And while this toy is excellent for tickling the anus and perineum, insertion into the anus is off limits, as it could so easily go missing.
I'm not sure, exactly, what is "up" with the labeling on this toys packaging, but I had to share. First off, Little Honey comes in a cardboard box that has a small front window that lets you see the toy inside. On the back of the box, the following is written:
"The first factory that obtained the manufacturing certificate, sales registration certificate and export sales certificate authorized by National Medical Supervisory Bureau.
No medical claims are warranted or implied by use of this product.
Sold as a novelty only."
This is a cute little bullet, and definitely something I would recommend. I have issues with the watch battery bullets (and N cell bullets....basically, anything that takes batteries other then AA and AAA) and so I really appreciate that this is a bullet that takes a AA battery and has a lot of oomph.
