Bottle rockets Apollo - traditional vibrator by Evolved Novelties - review by sunkissedJess

The Flight of Apollo.

It may lack in power and size for some users but this is probably one of the best toys for a beginner or first time toy user. It is a small, inexpensive, good quality, vibrator that has just enough power to get the job done. It can be used by yourself for some solo fun or you can use this for teasing during foreplay with your partner.
Great for beginners
Packaging makes for a good gift
May be too small and not powerful enough for some users.
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


The Apollo Bottle Rocket is a great little vibrator that I would recommend to beginners and first time toy users. It's very cute, fun, and in no way intimidating. It's best used for clitoral stimulation but can also be used for teasing or even inserted for a more shallow penetration. It's also great for introducing sex toys into the bedroom with a partner. It's easy to use and can be especially fun during foreplay. It's also very small and lightweight so you don't have to worry about it getting in the way of things. Since there is no flared base and this toy is so small, it is not intended for anal use. I would not recommend using this anally but you could use it for teasing around the anus. A more advanced user wouldn't hate this toy and it could even be a good choice if you're looking for something to take with you when traveling. Although, if you're wanting a deep penetration and something more filling, I would not suggest you buy The Apollo Bottle Rocket.

Material / Texture

The Apollo is made of a hard plastic with a smooth, velvety coating. This material is non-porous, hypo-allergenic, latex free, and free of phthalates. It is odorless, tasteless, and completely body safe. It's not a pliable material so it does not bend in any way. Since there is no texture on this toy, it's great for those who are sensitive to textures. I love the smoothness and velvety feel of this toy. There is no drag to this material and there are no problems when it comes to collecting hair or lint. Another great thing about this material is that it glides against the skin very nicely so lubricant really isn't necessary. Although, if you choose to use lubricant, any lubricant of your choice is safe to use with this material.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

The design, shape, and size of this toy is perfect for any beginner. It is very traditional in shape but is miniature in size. It has an hourglass shape to it with a tapered tip that makes it really useful for pinpoint stimulation and also very comfortable to insert. The Apollo is 4 1/2 inches long with an instertable length of 3 1/4 inches and 3 inches in circumference. It's not very long or filling toy so make sure to take that into consideration before you purchase this product. You can store and take this toy pretty much anywhere. It is extremely travel friendly and easy to hide.

    • Partner play

Functions / Performance / Controls

The Apollo is not your most intense vibrator, so I wouldn't really recommend this for someone who is looking for a lot of power in their toy. It's also not the worst when it comes to intensity either. If you are content with moderate vibrations then this would be the toy for you. The vibrations on this toy are very buzzy and felt mostly at the tip, making it great for pinpoint stimulation. The noise level is pretty quite. You would be able to hear it through the covers but I doubt you would be able to hear it through a closed door. Powering and controlling the Apollo is extremely easy. It runs on 1 AA battery and has a one push button control on the bottom of the toy that will power your toy and provide you with three different constant vibration levels; low, medium, and high. Inserting the battery is a very easy process, just make sure to screw the lid back on tightly, especially if you plan to use this toy in the water.
    • Discreet sound
    • Easy to use

Care and Maintenance

Being that The Apollo Bottle Rocket is 100% waterproof, it is extremely easy to clean and take care of. To wash this toy you can simply clean it with a mild soap and warm water. It is also safe to clean with your choice of toy cleaner or toy wipes. This toy is compatible with both water based and silicone based lubes, so choosing a lube is just as easy as cleaning up. Since this is a non-porous material that doesn't collect hair or lint, it doesn't require to be stored in a bag or pouch and can be safely store with other toys.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


If you ask me, the packaging for the entire Bottle Rockets line by Evolved is absolutely adorable. The Apollo comes packaged in a clear, see-thru plastic bottle that resembles an older style soda bottle. It's ready for gift giving and you could easily continue to store it inside the package it comes in if you wish to do so. It may not be the most discreet packaging but I guess it would depend on the person.

To remove the toy you must unscrew the bottom of the bottle. I've read in a lot of reviews that people try to unscrew the cap but that won't work. There are no instructions included with this toy but they do provide a small amount of information about the toy on the back of the bottle.

    • Good for storage
    • Not discreet
    • Would make a nice gift


I am in love with The Bottle Rockets line by Evolved. The Apollo has completed my collection and I now have all four of them. The Nova and The Saturn were my very first toy purchases and it really was a great introduction to sex toys for me. They all really have a little something different to offer you when it comes to texture and shape. I would recommend any of the toys from this line to all beginners who want something simple but aren't really sure what they are looking for or what they might like. They are inexpensive toys made of good quality, that will not turn off a first time toy user.

    I love the bottle rockets saturn that I have. I haven't tried any of the others in the line though. Thank you for sharing.
  • sunkissedJess
    The packaging is very creative and adorable
    Sadly, I think these are being discontinued here on Eden I saw there are still some Orions left but the others are all out of stock without the option to set an alert when it comes back in stock. That's too bad because this line really appealed to me as a first time toy buyer.
  • GONE!
