When in doubt... play Chess!

Check mates the bishop is a fairly simple but aesthetically pleasing vibrator. It is a very decent well built mini vibrator that you can take anywhere.
Velvety, evenly distributed vibrations, sturdy and compact.
Medium range vibrations at highest setting.
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


The Checkmates the bishop is a Mini vibrator for the clit or insertion. It is sleek, yet shapely, has multiple speeds and is waterproof.
Some may find chess boring but I no longer do because of this velvety, evenly distributed vibrating bishop. Though because of the smaller size the vibrations tend to be in the lower to mid end range, it is not enough to count it out!

Material / Texture

It is made of ABS plastic with a satin smooth purple coating. So water and silicone based lubes are best for this vibe. It is rigid and beyond velvety to touch as well as having no taste or smell. For those of you with allergies or sensitivities it is latex and phthalate free.

Design / Shape / Size

It is a classic looking vibrator despite it's curves. The royal purple color is very deep and beautiful to look at. The vibrator stands at 5 1/2" with about 3 that is insertable. The diamater varies from 1 1/4" down, the biggest points are at the ends which are rounded.

You can notice the seam on the toy slightly but it's more just you can tell where it was cut, it doesn't stick out at all. The white plastic part screws off to hold the batteries. It has a nice waterproof seal that doesn't let anything in at all. I was very comfortable with taking it in the tub without worry.

It takes one AAA battery, which isn't much, but it is a mini vibrator so keep that in mind.

I'm not exactly sure if peoples assumptions would be that this was a sex toy at first glance. It bares a resemblance to some sort of exercise weight.
    • Discreet look/design

Functions / Performance / Controls

The vibrations are pretty evenly distributed like I said before. You don't have to just use the tip you can use it on it's side or even the bottom. It feels very nice on it's side as a massage tool, especially on the back because of the curves. It's very quiet even on it's highest speed.

You control the vibrations at the bottom after the white part. It twists easily even with one hand use but won't just turn on without you turning it. It also won't take the battery section off at all while changing speeds, it's very secure. The vibrations go up to about a medium speed, so not your strongest vibe in the box but with the velvet feel and shape it is easy to get off with this fellow.
    • Discreet sound
    • Easy to use
    • Multiple settings

Care and Maintenance

Super easy clean up, soap and water or your toy cleaner. I store mine back in the plastic tube it came in because it looks nice and is very compact. The plastic is pretty firm so it doesn't dent against other boxes or toys in my storage.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


As seen in the first picture the packaging was enjoyable. It is a durable plastic tube with printing on it. It gives you all the specs on the back of the tube and some on the base of the tube. It has a loop at the top if you plan on hanging it for some reason. The base of the tube will hold the toy upright on a table, which is fun if you are planning on using this toy for actual chess.
    • Good for storage
    • Minimal
    • Would make a nice gift


I wanted this toy for the name alone to be honest. But I wasn't disappointed. While it isn't as strong as I wish it was I find I really enjoy it. I probably will use this toy more for clitoral use but it does feel nice when inside. I feel like because I can use it on it's sides and still feel the vibration it was really something I was drawn to. I will also use it as a massager alone I'm sure.

It states that it does have a 1 year warranty on the packaging so that is always a plus if you break it. It feels pretty durable so chances are low that you will actually need it.
