All That Glitters

I do love the way it looks and feels. I can't stop petting it. However, when it comes to getting me off, it severely fails at the job. It seems to be so tiny and a bit of a battery guzzler. Half the patterns do nothing for me and the other half only get me so close.
Nice design, good variety of vibrations, soft velvety feel
Cannot turn off vibe instantly, very small and slender

extremely useful review


This toy is so pretty, I squealed when I opened it. Its base is covered in pretty, shiny rhinestones. Who could resist that? I even texted my boyfriend about the lovely look of this slim vibrator. He was a little less thrilled than I was, but what does he know?

The Groovies Wave is a 8 speed vibrator that seems to offer so much; an appealing aesthetic design, different patterns, a soft and silky texture. However, it doesn't live up to what I so wanted from it. It was a tad too small for me, but I don't judge and that didn't lessen my excitement any. It has all these wonderful settings! It is also very quiet, which surprised me. I enjoyed being able to hear myself think, instead of an intense motor noise.
Despite the nifty patterns and quietness, there isn't an "Oh shit" button. Think like an on/off switch. Imagine, you're off in your own world fucking yourself insane and somebody bursts in the room. Sure they know you were masturbating cause your top is off, you're sweating some and you've covered your body with a cover but nobody can prove it. Except now they can, cause your vibrator will NOT shut up unless you go through ALL the patterns until it shuts off!
Now, I'm not really worrying about getting caught, but I imagine some college kids, or even a stay at home mom doesn't wanna get caught in the act so unless you own your domain I wouldn't invest in this.
It isn't very thick or long, but it stimulates your clit wonderfully. A few of the patterns are kind of repetitive and useless, but you'll find yours.
The eight patterns are labeled as:
Long Pulses
Short Pulses
Intense Buzz
and Mixed Pattern.
So personally for me, 23 year old female in a long distance relationship who gets off way too easily with clit stimulation Teasing and Flutter were a joke. They were so dull and light, I thought I had crappy batteries in. I am aware of the fact that they are called "Teasing" and "Flutter" but I didn't feel something "flutterish" it just felt unsure, like it wanted to work but couldn't.
I liked Buzz, it finally started getting some approval from me. It was harder, but nothing too special to call home about.
Long pulses and short pulses did the best for me, alongside Intense buzz. Short and Long Pulses gave that pulsating sensation I so adore during intercourse and Intense buzz, was like Buzz only better.
Mixed Pattern, was awful it goes through all of them in a slow manner, and you lose some excitement letting this toy guide your clit.

Material / Texture

The Groovies Wave is made out of ABS plastic, and has a very velvety PU coat. I loved how silky smooth it felt. The Groovies Wave didn't have a plastic smell when I took it out, and didn't taste too wretched either. The wavy texture was really nice but nothing too overwhelming. I believe a beginner could definitely use this as one of their first toy experiences. The Groovie Waves doesn't require a lot of lube due to its very nice smooth texture.

Design / Shape / Size

The design was really lovely. From the base of rhinestones, to the wavy shape and the velvety PU coating I love this toy. For me, personally, it's small-the span of my hand is almost bigger than the toy and it's not very thick at all. The toy is 5 1/2 inches long (with an insertable length of 4 1/2 inches) and 3 1/4 inches around. Again, a perfect size for a beginner toy. This toy could be pretty discreet, it's so tiny I can't imagine having an issue putting it away.

Functions / Performance / Controls

Nice amount of options on this toy. I assumed, with it being so cheap, they couldn't figure out a way to add all these different vibration patterns without making you go all the way through all eight. That's my biggest complaint on this toy. I have to go through all the patterns. I think Flutter and Tease are a waste of time, and so is Mixed Pattern. The control is one button and it's easy enough to use. This toy isn't noisy at all, and I like that a lot. I used this toy in the shower, but did not completely submerge it. Water just slid right off, and the battery compartment was closed up tight. I noticed no water damage after my shower.
    • Easy to use
    • Lots of variety in function
    • Multiple settings

Care and Maintenance

It's easy enough to take care of. ABS plastic just needs warm water and soap. Wipe it down and let it dry. I'm currently keeping it in its original packaging. You can use water, oil and silicone lube with this shiny gem.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


The toy came in a basic little package with a blue cardboard backdrop that says "Groovies Wave" and says "8 functions, Waterproof and Phthalate Free". On the back are some basic details about the 8 different functions and properties on the toy, along with how to insert the batteries and clean the toy.
    • Good for storage

Personal comments

With the easy going texture, pretty color, discreetness, and some variety in the vibrations you can kind of figure out what gets your blood flowing. This toy is perfect for beginners who may not quite know what they prefer in vibration strength or speed. If you are someone who likes strong vibrations, girth and length...this is not the toy for you. If you're not sure what you like, I'd get it. This is a cute little toy that will kind of let you explore what your wants are and it's not a bad price either.
Follow-up commentary
So it's still pretty. Still velvety to the touch. Still overall not being used.
Too tiny for this girl, and although there is a nice variety of vibrations they are not strong enough to even have me use this at the beginning of foreplay. So not that powerful, not thick or long enough, and you can't even turn it off quickly.

  • Morganna
    I love this review!!
  • Beaners
    I completely agree. It was enough for teasing, but not really enough to get me off.
  • Airen Wolf
    Great review! See? Told ya it was ready to go!
  • Illusional
    Thanks mentor!
  • P'Gell
    Good review. Illusional. Although I do like the Mixed Pattern (kind of like a man, you aren't sure what it's going to do next, and I mean that in the nicest way) it is too short and thin for me, too.

    I lost it once or twice. "Well, shit. I know it's in there. OH, there's the rhinestones. I got it!"
  • Illusional
    LOL, P'Gell!
  • Selective Sensualist
    Great review on this, hon! I completely agree with your assessment of it.
  • Shellz31
    Lol @ P'Gell. I like that.
    I have this but I haven't actually used it yet. I don't think it will be girthy enough to totally satisfy. I must give it a try if I can tear myself away from Isla. She is still top of my toy list!

    Great review chickie.
  • Lucidity
    I felt the same way about this; pretty, but also pretty disappointing!
    Thanks for the great review.
  • BadassFatass
    This disappointed me too. Well, more like it frustrated the hell out of me. I'm glad I'm not the only one who felt this way.
  • Sweet-Justice
    Thank you for the review!
    I really like the way this looks, and I'm not all about vibe power but I wish it had a little more girth to it, other wise it seems like you might as well use a tampon :/
  • DeliciousSurprise
    Great review, sorry it doesn't pack enough of a punch
  • phunkyphreak
