Pirates pendant vibe - bullet vibrator by Digital Playground - review by Chirple

Cabin Girl's First Toy

If you're okay with the moderate intensity and probably not a terribly long life-span, it's a cute first toy or novelty edition to a collection. If used only sparingly, I imagine it would have lasted longer than it did for us.
ARR, PIRATES. Discreet. Cute. Decently powerful.
Not terribly intense. A little small. Lasted only a few months.
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


The shiny little gold Pirate from Digital Playground works best for clitoral stimulation and the pointed tip allows you to direct the sensations pretty well. The chain (although, perhaps you could replace it with a cord) is a little too pinchy for anything internal and I wouldn't trust the connectors enough for anal play.

While it doesn't have any value to relax sore muscles, the size and shape lent itself well to being used to stimulate other sensitive areas and dragged around as a teasing buzz.

Material / Texture

The Pirate pendant is smooth plastic and reminds me of costume jewelry, and I like that the material is non-porous and phthalates free without a perceptible odor. It shines more like tin than gold, but it's not totally garish. The texture is nice and decorative, but I don't feel it really added or subtracted from play. It's a little bit extra and not annoying.

    • No odor

Design / Shape / Size

The pendant is shaped a bit like a peanut, with one end slightly larger and tapering to a soft point. The skinner, waist-like portion lends itself to being held. It has a skull and ornate banding that provide texture throughout. The detail is a bit soft in definition and I couldn't really tell what I was looking at without really scanning it. I think it's a necessary evil with a toy this size to keep it generally pleasurable and it looks nicer than simply being bare.

One of my only initial problems with this vibe is that I felt it was a little small to handle. The shape helps make up for this and keeps the concept discreet, but even with my tiny hands and fingers, I would lose hold of it. I found it best to hold the chain in my hand to keep a little tension on it to keep it from slipping out of my fingers.

Aesthetically, I'm a big fan. It's not going to convince anyone it's really gold, but it does the job for the price. It's so discreet, unless someone's seen it before I doubt they'd guess what it was. The small size that's not the best in-use does lend itself well to being worn as a necklace. You could wear it to the Renaissance Festival if you were brave enough, though with all the dust I'm sure it would need a good bath after! It's not entirely waterproof, so you'd want to use wipes or be careful when cleaning it off.

Functions / Performance / Controls

To control the vibrations, you press the little "stem" at the top and you cycle through low, high, and three pulse patterns. You can't lock it and there's no emergency off function.

While it's not a weak bullet, it's not that strong either - but I was pleasantly surprised it got that much oomph out of just three watch batteries. The watch batteries themselves are a pain, expensive and a short life, and if it wasn't for the novelty value I would tend to shy away from a toy that uses them.

It's nice and it did it for my partner, but not for me. I appreciated the pulse patterns, they were a nice addition and I find I prefer them to just straight vibration for warming up. It can be annoying to cycle through all of them to go from a pulse back to high vibration, but in a toy this size there's not really much else they can do at this price.

It's pretty quiet, you can barely hear it under the covers and certainly not through a closed door. It's a pleasant little warm buzz that lets you know it's on and it's not distracting.
    • Discreet sound
    • Easy to use
    • Multiple settings

Care and Maintenance

You can clean it with soap and water (being careful since it's not fully waterproof) or cleaning alcohol, really easy. I didn't use any lubricant with it, but it's compatible with water-based, oil, and silicone lubes.

Once it's dry, you can store it wherever you'd like - it doesn't collect lint and is happy to hang out anywhere from in a sock drawer or on a nightstand to tucked away in a jewelry box.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


The packaging it comes in is just your typical plastic clamshell type case with a cardboard insert that depicts a stormy sea, ships and the PIRATES text. It's cheap and lets you know the postal workers didn't open it up and play with it.

It's cheap and I wouldn't use it for storage, just get rid of it, preferably by recycling.

The box is not as discreet as the toy itself and lets you know it's a vibrator. I guess if you're giving it to someone at a birthday or bachelorette party, it lets them know what it is instead of making them wonder why you got them a kind of funny-looking necklace.
    • Recyclable
    • Would make a nice gift

Personal comments

It's a neat merchandising tie-in with Digital Playground's Pirates franchise, but for me it falls into the "novelty" category.


I got this toy as a gift for my partner who appreciated how discreet it was. As a first toy, it was great, it wasn't garish or off-putting or intimidating. It's easy to use and is decently powerful.

It was fun to use as a couple and aside from the issue of how small it was, easy to manipulate and I do really like the shape.

Unfortunately, the motor eventually wore out after a few months. I guess it's your call if it's worth it for the price, or if you'd try to be more careful with it. I'm not really sure why it died, but it was nice while it lasted.

I really liked this little toy, but both of us agree we would not buy it again. It certainly wasn't a waste and I think we got the value's worth out of it by the time it croaked.

    Awesome job!

    I actually got one of these with the Pirates Riley Fleashlight, but it doesn't work properly. I think there's a broken wire somewhere. After reading your review, I decided to get one in my last order. I know my Master will like the idea of me wearing a bullet necklace cause he often tells me to play while out and about. Now I'll be able to have it on me everywhere I go. I like the idea of it more than the actual function - from what I could feel from this dodgy one.

    Nice review, thank you! Sorry to hear it's not working anymore.

    You'd be able to tell who has knowledge about sex toys, when you see the reactions on those people's face, seeing the bullet around your neck at the Renaissance Faire!
