A Trip to the Zoo, Anyone?

Sweety Giraffe is a fun and cute vibration that comes in a pretty bright yellow color. Sweety would add a touch of whimsy to your collection and is versatile enough to be used on dry land and in water. You can't go wrong with these strong vibrations and quiet motor.

Use

Sweety Giraffe is a bright yellow g-spot vibrator with the likeness of a giraffe. It is great for clitoral and g-spot stimulation as well as external stimulation to any other part of the body. I think this vibe is best for solo play because it is pretty long and might get in the way during couple's play. But, it could be used by one person on another, either for genital stimulation or body massage. Since Sweety Giraffe is waterproof, it can be used anywhere! And, it's amazingly quiet for its size.

Material / Texture

The insertable portion of Sweety Giraffe is made from 'medical grade silicone'. The silicone has a small amount of drag when touched with unlubricated skin. The texture on Sweety Giraffe varies from place to place. The tip is shaped like the head of a giraffe and curved for g-spot stimulation. The very tip has raised lips with slightly raised nostrils just below that. Further down on the head are raised eyes, horns and ears. There's also a lump in between the eyes, but I'm not sure what part of a giraffe that is. Down the center of the back of the giraffe is a straight, raised line and then on the rest of the body there are raised 'spots' like a giraffe would have. The spots are of varying size and shape and they are just slightly higher than the rest of the silicone. The texture is not intense and would probably not be enough for a texture queen, but can be felt during insertion and sometimes during external stimulation, depending on how the vibe is positioned. My favorite was the lips on the tip, which feel amazing for clitoral stimulation. There is no odor or taste to the material. The head of the giraffe feels like it is mostly just silicone with enough firmness to allow for pressure when using it internally. The body is moderately flexible. It kind of feels like there is an egg or large bullet that is attached to the rotary dial in some type of swivel joint. The bottom part where the rotary dial is located is all plastic with grooved lines for traction.

Design / Shape / Size

I really love the design of Sweety Giraffe. It is cute AND functional! And it's bright yellow, which I have no other vibes in. It is 8.5 inches long with 7.5 of those inches insertable. The largest circumference of Sweety is 5.5 inches but it does taper to a smaller size as you near the tip. If you're trying to picture the size and aren't good at visualizing numbered measurements, Sweety is about the size of a traditional vibrator, but spruced up with the lovely silicone Giraffe. The head of the giraffe is angled for g-spot stimulation, and in my opinion is successfully angled. The flexibility of the body allows for you to angle the tip and thrust but without it being too rigid or uncomfortable. The size of Sweety makes it not so easy to hide, but it DOES come with a silver satin storage bag, so at least someone would have to open the bag to see what it was.

Functions / Performance / Controls

Sweety Giraffe takes two AA batteries which you insert by unscrewing the bottom and dropping them in. Just put the top back on and you're ready to go. The vibrations are controled by the rotary dial on the bottom, just twist it clockwise and you can go from mild to wild. There is only one vibration pattern for Sweety, and it is a steady vibration. I think that sometimes, the simplest things are the best. The lowest vibration strength is probably a two on the EF vroom scale and the highest is a five. Like I said, from mild to wild! The twist dial is easy to use, it has grooved lines running up and down it for extra grip, however it does have pretty good resistance (can't be turned accidentally or super easily). After you've lubed up, it can be a little difficult to get a good grip to adjust the intensity.

Sweety is amazingly quiet. On the lowest setting, no way could someone hear it through a door, and I highly doubt they could on the highest setting either. As I am writing this I had to test that, so I turned it on high, laid it on the bed and stood right outside my closed door and heard nothing. To me, that is a pretty big plus! Most bigger toys I've used, granted also cheaper toys, were very noisy. I don't have any roommates, so this isn't a concern for me, but I know it may be a concern for others.

Sweety's vibrations appear to be located in the neck just below the head but translate well into the rest of the toy. The head of Sweety vibrates very strongly, functioning almost like rabbit ears on a rabbit, but thicker and firmer.

This morning I took Sweety off of dry ground and into the shower to test the waterproofness of him. I can happily report that there were no operational problems while in water. There was no moisture in the battery compartment after the shower and I have turned Sweety on and off repeatedly since then with no malfunctions. The only problem is trying to use a water-based lubricant with Sweety in the shower. My particular lubricant kept washing off, but you might have more success with a different lube.

Care and Maintenance

According to the EF site, Sweety Giraffe is dishwasher safe and boilable. However, the insert that came in the box recommends cleaning with warm water and soap or a toy cleaner. I use warm water and soap, myself. The silicone material does attract lint and hair, but soap and water remove it easily. Sweety came with a silver satin storage bag which works great to help keep hair and lint off of it.

Since Sweety is made of silicone it is important to make sure you use only water-based lubricants. Using other types of lubricant can cause degradation in the material and damage your Sweety. Also, avoid silicone to silicone toy contact for the same reason.

Packaging

Sweety Giraffe came in a long silver box with a cut out so you can see Sweety inside. Sweety is enclosed in a plastic clam shell type container inside the box. It is not discreet at all and really not suitable for storage as the plastic gets caught on the inside flaps when you try to reinsert it. There were also the silver storage bag, two inserts about the different JoyDivision products, a packet of AquaGlide lubricant, and a pamphlet with instructions for use, care, and warranty information.

The warranty is listed under 'Guarantee' and says the following:
'The guarantee on the material (silicone) is 5 years for material faults, if the product is used for its intended purpose and with water soluble lubricant. The guarantee for all other parts is 2 years from the date of purchase. The complaint process (sending in the item with sales slip) takes place through the retailer from which the article was purchased. The original sales slip must be retained in order for the guarantee to be given.'

All information on the pamphlet is in multiple languages and the product is manufactured in Germany.
    • Not discreet
    • Very informative

Personal comments

One thing that I haven't mentioned much about yet is the lubricant that came with Sweety Giraffe. It is called Aquaglide and is a water-based lubricant that is also manufactured by JoyDivision. There was a small packet that was sufficient for one use included in the box. Aquaglide is a nice thick lubricant that stayed where you put it and lasted throughout my play session. I really liked it, especially compared to my other water-based lubricants. I looked it up on the internet to see what was in it and that type information. The package says that the ingredients are Aqua, Glycerine, Hydroxyethycellulose, and Soidum Methylparaben. So that's the bad news, it contains glycerine and paraben which may not work for those who are sensitve to these ingredients. I have not had any problems as a result of use. The packaging also says that it is 'dermatologically and clinically tested, 100% condom compatible, quality controlled, long lasting lubrication, water-based and greaseless, and pH optimal. Even with the glycerine and parabens, I think I'd actually get more of this stuff, it was that impressive.

Experience

The first time I used Sweety Giraffe I tried him out on dry land with the included lubricant. I started by turning the dial to the highest setting and applying the tip to my clitoris. I quickly found that this was TOO intense for me, so I turned it down to a medium setting and used the nicely textured lips to stimulate my clit. The flexible head almost acts like the ears of a rabbit vibrator in sensation only. It doesn't visibly move as much or quickly as a rabbit, but the vibrations are strong and quick. Using the medium vibration on my clit was strong enough to bring me to orgasm, but once I was ready for insertion, I turned Sweety all the way back up. Upon insertion, you can feel the raised ridge on the back more than any of the other raised portions. I was actually concerned that the ridge or even the spots might be uncomfortable, but with the proper amount of lube they were able to glide over skin providing a little textural stimulation without any discomfort. The girth of the Sweety is not a problem at all for me when lubricant is used. The head is angled just right to hit the g-spot and there is enough firmness to allow for thrusting and stimulation. I did prefer the higher vibration during insertion. I think that the shape and vibrations would be enough for most women to orgasm from.

When I used Sweety in the shower, I found that using Sweety for clitoral stimulation was better for me. I first tried using Sweety while I was standing, which made insertion awkward due to angle and size. I applied some water-based lubricant but it kept washing off in the water. I also laid down in the tub and tried using Sweety for insertion, but without lubricant, it wasn't realistic for me. So, while Sweety works in water, I would suggest finding a lubricant that is compatible but doesn't wash off too easily.

Overall, I really enjoyed Sweety Giraffe. My experience has me checking out their other products available. I'm definitely wanting to explore more of their line!
