Use

The Heart Paddle by Eden Toys is for use by couples who enjoy impact play. If you're looking for the next step up from spanking by hand, then this paddle may be perfect for your bedroom antics, and can open a whole new line of fantasies between you and a partner. Beginners to advanced users will find something to love about this compact paddle. It's a simple, lightweight paddle that can deliver a light thwack to a full-blown smack of the skin. This makes it great for foreplay, and a good middle ground whether you want to lightly spank your partner, or leave welts with heavy play.

This particular paddle is also travel friendly due to its size. Remember to pack it flat, as it does bend, and can possibly warp the material if left bent for too long in storage or your luggage. This particular paddle is great on all body parts, and can even be used on the genitals due to its size and ease of use. If you're sweaty on a hot day, this thing can even be used to fan yourself.

Design / Craftsmanship / Size / Material / Features

The Heart paddle is made from leather and suede. The body of the paddle is made up of a rough black leather, and the heart cut-out designs are a soft red suede. Along the body of the leather, there's red stitching, which holds together the three layers of leather and adds to the aesthetics of the paddle. The design of this paddle is nicely done, and it feels sturdy in the grip. There is also a hanging/wrist strap attached to this paddle that I believe is a canvas material.


The stitching

The leather is lightweight, but feels nice and sturdy, with a bit of flex after the first heart before the middle one. There weren't any smells to the material when removed from the plastic bag, so it doesn't smell like leather normally would. The red suede of the hearts is pretty thin, even for two layers, and you can move it back and forth with your fingers, so it feels pretty weak and feels like it can rip easily if users aren't careful. However, the overall quality of this paddle is great, and should hold up, even with the roughest form of play.

The leather is kind of scratchy, so after prolonged use your hand may feel the effects of the handle, but the receiver doesn't have to worry about this particular problem. The wrist strap may be too small for larger hands to slip through, but because of the paddle's compact size, gripping it shouldn't be a problem.

The sizes for the Heart paddle by Eden Toys are as follows:

Overall length - 10-1/2 inches (without the strap included)
Overall length - 15 inches (with the strap included)
Widest point of hearts (width) - 2-1/2 inches
Portion between hearts (width) - 1-1/2 inches
Handle (width) - 1-1/4 inches

Performance

This toy can bring a wonderful thwack against the skin if handled with a heavy hand. If the user prefers a lighter slap, it's great for that as well. The leather is not completely smooth against the skin because of the stitching, but this in no way cuts the flesh with heavier strikes. Depending on how hard or soft you slap this against the skin, it leaves a stinging sensation or a thud behind. With heavier slaps, this paddle also can create faint heart shaped marks on the skin, but it takes repeat hits in the same exact spot in order to achieve this goal.

This paddle is lightweight, so you'll have to be the judge of just how hard you're hitting your partner, because it is so easily maneuvered. Users who take part in impact play should have a safe word, just in case. This paddle is great for everyone, and even users with larger than average hands will find the handle easy to hold. The small size, combined with the material and the small bit of flex makes this a great teaser as well, and can be used for rewarding your partner, or punishing them.

Care and Maintenance

Due to this paddle being made of leather it is better to think of it as fluid-bonded to whomever you're using it on if you're using this naked. Leather rates a 7 out of 10 on the Eden safety scale. While it is water-resistant, leather is porous, and will retain fluids and some scents if picked up. If your Heart paddle gets dirty, you can wipe it down with a damp cloth and a mild soap. Never use harsh chemicals on leather, as it will degrade and cause it to crack and flake.

Suede also rates a 7 on the Eden safety scale, and again, it is a porous material. However, suede is not water-resistant, and can stain if water soaks into it. To clean this material using water, rub the entire area down with a wet cloth. If you have one on hand, you will also need to use a suede brush to refresh the nap of the material if you get this soaked. Never use soaps on this material, as it will ruin it, and cause the suede to dry out and degrade.

Once you've wiped your toy down, allow it to air dry. Always store your leather in a cool, dry place away from indirect sunlight. A closet is a great place to put your impact toys. The wrist strap allows you to hang it from a hook. If you don't like the idea of having hooks in your wall, invest in shower curtain hooks (the circular kind) and hang them around the pole in your closet where your clothes go if you have extra closet space. This will allow your paddle to hang in its straight position and not have anything bending or putting pressure on it.

Packaging

The paddle came shipped in a discreet cardboard box. The box didn't have the contents listed on the outside and simply said it came from "Web Merchants Inc.", which is discreet enough if the person delivering it doesn't know who the seller is. Inside of the box, there were air pillows to protect the contents from bouncing around in transit. Both of these things can be recycled if you have no further use of them. The paddle was in a clear, plastic, sealed bag, which had a UPC sticker on the outside.

The paddle didn't come with tags, instructions or anything further, but the use of it is self-explanatory. There aren't any instructions on how to clean this paddle, so you can use this review as a guide, or you can look up online the proper ways to clean leather and suede. If you want to gift this paddle to someone, a nice gift bag or a gift box will do fine. That is, if the person you're gifting this to isn't ashamed of opening this kind of thing in front of others.

Follow-up commentary
We still enjoy using the heart paddle to see if we can make hearts on our backsides with it. The leather had held up well and showed only minor signs of wear around the edges. We use this roughly, so the fact it has stood the test of time really shows the craftsmanship of the paddle.
