UnforeSeedable Disappointment

This vibrator is good for someone who likes a hard, rigid vibrator made for pinpoint stimulation. The Seed is also a vibrator of high quality materials with a range of settings with moderate vibrations. Though the Seed is not quite right for everyone, it is very well made!
Pinpoint vibrations, Small, Easy to clean, Rechargeable, Pretty lights, Variety of settings
Not very strong vibrations, Hard tip
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


The Zini Seed is a small, compact vibrator mainly used for clitoral stimulation. The tip is made of a soft velvety silicone and the rest of the toy is made of a hard plastic material. The tip is small, which allows for pinpoint vibrations in areas of your choosing. The vibrator can also be used to stimulate the vagina, anus, nipples and other erogenous zones of the body. Please be careful stimulating near your anus since the vibe does not have a tapered edge and could get lost inside your body. Out of all my vibrators, the Zini Seed is my most quiet, and would be great in a dorm room or in a roommate situation. Part of the reason the seed is not loud is because it doesn't have very strong vibrations, but it would be perfect for someone who likes moderate vibrations. The toy lights up during use and is a different color on each setting. This toy would be good to use during partner sex as well as during solo sex and could be for anyone that likes moderate precise vibrations. The Zini Seed is a small, moderately strong pinpoint vibrator great for many occasions!

Material / Texture

The base of the toy is made of a hard smooth plastic and the tip is of a soft silicone. The silicone used on the Seed is softer than that of my other vibrators and is very velvety and smooth. The entire toy is very stiff. The tip is silicone over plastic, so it does not have any give. Since there is plastic under the silicone, you can apply force to the vibrator and really feel it. Also since the toy is smooth, it is not really good for people who like vibrators with texture. The toy had no smell when I first opened the package. The silicone also has no taste.
    • Not porous at all
    • Rigid
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

The Zini Seed is a compact clitoral stimulator that fits in my hand very well. Since the toy is small, it is easy to manipulate and move to different parts of the body. The tip of the toy is designed well for direct pinpoint stimulation. The toy gets narrower as it approaches the tip and the tip is wide enough that it is not uncomfortable. I think the toy is very aesthetically pleasing, and I like the two tone color combination of white and pink. I also like how the toy lights up different colors for different settings.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The Zini Seed has three buttons, a + sign, a - sign, and an o. The vibe has a basic vibration mode that has five settings for vibration speed. The vibrator also has 10 vibration pattern settings. To turn the seed on you press the plus button and to turn the seed off you hold the - button. After pressing the +, if you keep pressing the plus you will scroll through the 5 normal vibration settings, to go to a lower setting you press the - sign. Once you get to the highest setting and continue to hit the + button nothing will happen and the vibrator will continue to stay at the highest setting.

To switch to the patterns you hit the o button which is in between the + and - signs. To scroll through the patterns, you can press either the + or - buttons. If you continue to press the + or - sign you will just continue to scroll through the settings over and over again. If you press the o button again you will go back the last vibration setting you had been on before going to patterns. If you hold the o button you will go to a random pattern mode where the seed switches patterns every few seconds. If you hold the o again you will go back to the normal vibration settings. To turn the LED light off you press and hold the + button on one of the pattern settings. If you press and hold the + button when you are on normal vibration mode it will bring you to the highest vibration speed.

Note: When you press the - or + buttons while in the normal vibration mode the LED light will glow a whitish purply color. When the button is not held, the LED light stays off on this mode.
Also, all settings on this vibrator are buzzy.
Vibration 1- 1 vroom
Vibration 2- 1 vroom
Vibration 3- 2 vroom
Vibration 4- 2 vroom
Vibration 5- 3 vroom

Note: When you are on the pattern setting, the LED light will glow the color of the pattern for the entirety of the time you have that setting on, unlike in the normal vibration setting.
Pattern 1- white/ purple - goes up and down in speed slowly
Pattern 2- teal - goes up and down in speed quicker
Pattern 3- blue - goes up and down in speed very quickly
Pattern 4- red/ orange - goes up in speed slowly and then pulses off
Pattern 5- fuschia - goes up in speed even slower and then pulses off
Pattern 6- lime green - goes up in speed and then pulses twice
Pattern 7- purple - constant fast pulsing
Pattern 8- violet - constant fast pulsing (slower than 7)
Pattern 9- pink/ purple - off kilter fast pulsing
Pattern 10- pink - fast pulsing and a brief pause of regular vibration

I really just like pattern 1 and how it goes up and down in speed slowly. When I use vibrators I usually go up in down in speed often, so this pattern mimics what I like a little bit. Once you learn the controls they are easy to remember and the buttons are easy to press while using the toy. The toy is not very noisy, but you definitely would hear it across the room, but probably not in the room next door. Certain settings are louder than others, like some of the patterns and the stronger vibrations. The vibrator is very quiet if you use it under the covers. The toy is not really waterproof and you definitely have to be careful to not get the power cord port wet while cleaning the toy.

The toy is very unique in the sense that you can hold down the o button when the toy is off and it will tell you how much battery is left.
Green - 100% - 95%
Light green - 95% - 70%
Yellow - 70% - 50%
Orange - 50% - 10%
Red - 10% - 0%

Plugging the toy in is easy, you just insert the plug into the hole of the toy. Another great feature is that you can even use the toy while it is charging!
    • Discreet sound
    • Multiple settings
    • Rechargeable

Care and Maintenance

This toy is mildly easy to clean because it is smooth and made of silicone; however, there are crevices between the plastic and silicone and around the buttons on the vibrator. I wash the vibe in the sink, but am very careful about getting water near the base where the power cord port goes. It could also be washed with a moist towel with soap. Since the vibrator is made of silicone it collects lint, so it is important to rinse the vibrator off before use. The vibrator comes with a carrying case which is good for storage between uses. The toy is small and is very easy to store and to carry around. Also since the vibe is silicone it is important to keep it away from other silicone toys and to only use water-based lube with it, since silicone based lube can ruin the toy.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


The packaging of the Zini Seed is the most elegant of all the toys I have bought. The Seed comes in a black box which is very simple. When you open the box you see the Seed. Especially since my seed is pink and white it really contrasted against the black of the box. The toy came with a satchel in order to hold the seed which is very useful for storage.
    • Discreet looking packaging
    • Good for storage
    • Minimal

Personal comments

This vibrator is buzzy rather than rumbly which is part of the reason I am not a fan of it. The Seed also is not very strong and therefore is not strong enough for me. Though in the product details it says that the Seed is waterproof, it appears that it is not actually waterproof. The port for the charging wire is not covered well and so if the toy was emerged in water, it would probably die. The seed may be splash proof, but I have been too nervous to try it in the shower.


I do not really like the Zini Seed, though it has many positive features. I am not a fan of the vibrations because they are buzzy and I am more interested in rumbly vibrations. I also do not like pinpoint stimulation and like a more wide tip to stimulate my clitoris, therefore the small tip of the seed is too small to me. I also do not like that the tip is so rigid, I like a more flexible tip. However, I love that the toy is rechargeable and I do not constantly have to make sure I have batteries in my house. I also like that I am able to go up and down in vibration very easily and can switch to patterns with ease.

    Great review! I had contacted Zini not long ago to find out what the deal was with splashproof vs waterproof and was told it is not waterproof. You can read more about it in my review. I submitted a support ticket to get Eden to change their info on the product page but nothing has happened yet.

    @Melanie Personally I don't really need a toy to be waterproof so the seed was okay for me, but if I bought this toy and found out it was not actually waterproof I would be very disappointed! I'll send a support ticket too to try to help change the product page. Thanks for your comment!
