Not my #1, but still makes the cut!

It is definitely worth it for the price. It would be worth it even if the price were a little higher. I did not like the loud vibrations because it is very indiscreet. But, I did like the texture and the girth of this toy, and it was great for vaginal play (not too big, not too small). I gave this vibe four stars because of its loud vibrations; if not, it would have definitely received five stars.

extremely useful review


Although this is not my favorite toy, with its pretty purple color, its velvety texture, great girth, and strong vibrations, it definitely makes the cut to be in my bedside table drawer! It is perfect for solo play. It works both for clitoral stimulation as well as for vaginal play. It has a good amount of girth and drag to get the job done. It has just enough drag so that it can be enjoyed during couples play without the fear of having it slip in too easily and hurting the cervix. It is perfect for both beginner and advanced users. I would not recommend for anal play since there is no base to it. This purple baby is the perfect gift for any beginner looking to experiment with clitoral stimulation and vaginal play. I am actually looking into getting one of these for a family member who has never had a toy. Although this toy is suitable for use in most places, it is NOT discreet enough to do so. It is extremely loud and would definitely get someone's attention.

Material / Texture

The Groovies Slimline is a plastic toy with a velvety coating. It is non-porous and made up of phthalate-free ABS plastic. I love the coating! I was glad that it was not just hard plastic. The velvety coating is smooth and adds more drag, which makes it more enjoyable during penetration. It is a traditional vibrator, but definitely worth the price. It is not a flexible toy, so being careful during penetration is a must.

A big plus for this toy is that it has no odor! I am always concerned with odor, although a mild odor is okay as long as it doesn't interrupt me during use. To the touch, this baby is very smooth, easy to hold, and easy to slide in and out. During foreplay I like to tease my husband, so I like to lick and suck on the vibrator. It was great that there was no taste to it: that would turn me away from putting my mouth on it.

Design / Shape / Size

The design on the Groovies Slimline is very basic. The girth is perfect for beginners, as well as for advanced users. It is neither too big nor too small. It is a little over 7" long, and about 6" is insertable.

One of the problems I have when using a toy is that I get too wet from natural lubrication and the toys always seem to slide out on their own and slide in too easily, which can easily hurt my cervix. Well, with the velvety texture the Groovies Slimline has, it adds more drag, helps out with the sliding in and out, and gives it a better sensation.

Storing is easy! It is thin enough to slide into just about anywhere when trying to store it and/or travel with it.

Functions / Performance / Controls

It has a multispeed dial at the bottom, which increases steadily in strength. The control is very simple to use. Not much instruction is need since there is not much to this toy. You simply insert the batteries, close the cap tight, and turn the dial on the base to turn it on. (If the cap is not screwed on tightly, it will not turn on - or it will turn on and off during use.)

I will say: when I first received the package, I opened it, put in the batteries, and thought to myself, "Wow this is noisy!" The husband agreed. Most of my toys I can get away with using without the husband knowing and wanting to join in, as long as he is sitting at the base of the bed. But, this one he will surely hear!

On the highest setting, it can be heard in the same room, but not behind closed doors. The vibrations are located slightly below the shaft. Although they are felt pretty strong at the tip, they are stronger below the shaft. It has very strong vibrations, which, to me, is great because I love mine on the highest setting!

It is waterproof, and using this baby in the shower definitely adds to the sensation, especially during partner play. I was a little skeptical about using this in the bath; but, even in a tub full of water, it worked great and definitely added to the sensation (not to mention that the Mr. was beyond thrilled to see me in a tub of water playing with myself).

Care and Maintenance

The Groovies Slimline is very easy to clean: just a little bit of soap and warm water will get it clean. Since it is waterproof, it makes it a lot easier to wash it before and after each use.


The packaging was very simple. No instructions were included, except the ones listed on the back of the package. I like to keep most of my toys stored in their original cases unless I use them often, and the fact that I did not have to tear or cut the package was a plus because I do get to store it in there whenever it's not in use. It comes in a package you would typically see hanging in stores on a shelf.

Personal comments

It did take me longer than it does with my #1 vibe to get off (I guess I'm learning that each vibe has its little tricks to do the job). But, even still, the sensation when finally finishing was great. It definitely felt different than with my #1 vibe and required a little more work on my part (besides the usual placing it on my clit and just waiting to get off). I was so super wet after finally having an orgasm that slipping it in my pussy was super easy! I loved it.


Wow! With the strong vibrations I felt upon opening it, I thought for sure it would have been a piece of cake to get off with it. I was wrong! It took long, it was loud, and when pressing hard against my clit, it would make a weird honking sound - the kind a truck would make, only very low! I looked out my window to see who was driving by. It wasn't until later that I realized that it was the toy making those noises. I really did believe this would have been the replacement for my old one that is starting to go bad. Well, it's not. I did manage to get off, and it did take some work. Normally, I would just hold the vibe to my clit (once I find my spot) and let myself get there; but, with this one, it took moving and shifting and playing around with it. The vibrations are pretty strong; maybe I just haven't gotten the hang of it yet. Whatever the case, it will not be replacing my little friend, at least not as a clit stimulator. Don't let that alone discourage you. The girth is great and the velvety texture makes for great penetration. It was a little hard for my taste, so I was primarily looking to use this as a clitoral stimulator. My husband likes it because it made it easier on him to use on me since it wasn't going to slip in and out as easily as other toys, and he knew it would not accidentally hurt my cervix.
