Pocket wand - pocket rocket by Shaki Toys - review by meitman

“Dig the Deep of the Lady”

This toy has a lot of potential, but fails miserably in its design. It would make an excellent gag gift, but there are too many other options that can do what this toy does for the same price and without the let-downs.

Fails in design, says it is used to "dig the deep of the lady" but isn't well suited for that

Use

The Pocket Wand is a smooth, thin vibrator similar in function to a vibrating egg. It is long and slender and can be inserted vaginally, however because it is so thin it may not work as well for internal stimulation. G-spot stimulation is possible, but harder to achieve because it is not curved. It will work well for clitoral or pin-point stimulation. Because of the design (we’ll get to this later) and it not having a flared base I would not recommend “digging the deep” with this toy for even an experienced anal player.

Material / Texture

The Pocket Wand is made out of food-grade plastic. It is non-porous, hypo-allergenic, latex and phthalate-free. It is smooth except for the seam where it opens to put batteries in. Although the seam can be felt with your hand it is not felt when used vaginally. There was no noticeable smell after opening the package.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

The Pocket Wand, called Russian Torpedo on the packaging, is shaped like a long, slender torpedo, measuring 6 inches long and 1 inch at its widest point. The tip that vibrates measures ¾ of an inch.

The design was not thought through well enough. Two-thirds of the toy houses the 2 AA batteries while the top third houses the motor. It took me a while to figure out how to open this toy just to put the batteries in. I finally figured out if you grab each end with your hands and try to break the toy in half the top third of the toy will pop open. Because you just push the top third down onto the bottom portion of the toy, I would think the seam will eventually where down over time and will eventually cause the toy to easily come apart. For this reason, I would not recommend using the toy anally even for an experienced anal player. You don’t want to be using this toy and accidentally have the top third come off and “dig the really deep”.

To turn the toy on there are two metal contacts inside. You twist the top or bottom sections of the toy until the two contacts meet. This is easy enough, but I have had to bend the contacts a couple of times to get the right angle for the two to touch and turn on. Because it is so easy to turn on/off, you will want to use some lube if you are using the toy internally. Your natural lubrication may not be enough. My wife actually managed to turn the toy off when she used it vaginally.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The Pocket Wand is not the quietest toy because it has a very strong motor. It is probably loud enough to hear through a door if you are using it externally. If it were designed a little better it would actually be a very useful toy. It works well for clitoral or pin-point stimulation. It does, however, get pretty warm while in use, which makes me wonder how long this toy will actually last before burning up. It never got hot enough that I would worry about burns or anything, but it definitely gets warmer on the vibrating end while in use. Because of how strong the motor is, the vibrations are felt from end to end of this toy and may cause your hand to go numb with extended use. There is only one level of vibrations from the moment you turn it on and it is strong.

Care and Maintenance

Food-grade plastic can be cleaned with soap, hot water, wiping down with isopropyl alcohol, or a toy cleaner. It is safe to use with water, oil, or silicone lubes.

This toy is not water resistant by any stretch of the imagination. You will want to clean it thoroughly inside and out as body fluids will most definitely get inside and will cause an odor after a short time. Because moisture can get in so easily, I am concerned that repeated moisture or thorough cleanings will eventually result in corroded metal inside the toy. You will want to make sure you dry it out very well to prevent that.

Packaging

The packaging is minimal. It is just a basic plastic packaging that holds the wand and a cardboard information sheet. You will probably want to put this package inside of something else if you are going to wrap it up and give it as a gift. The cardboard with all the information, however, is my favorite part of this product! It is definitely not discreet and when I read the information it makes me think that a group of Russian virgin teenagers came up with the info in their parents’ basement. The cardboard calls this toy a Russian Torpedo featuring a “foreign style” and is a “high-tech weapon”. It claims this “cute little guy brings you endless climax” and “is ready to dig the deep of the lady”. “It can give Lady the special feeling, Take Lady to the deluxe and sexy world.” “You will never forget the time you and him!”

Personal comments

I cannot tell you how hard my wife and I have laughed since receiving this toy! Just thinking about “digging the deep of the lady” makes us start laughing. For the packaging info alone I would give this toy as a gag gift to someone with a good sense of humor. Then I would warn them about the failures in the design and recommend they give it to someone else as a joke. It’s just too bad because this toy has potential with the powerful motor and longer length, but the design flaws and the lack of any moisture resistance makes this toy too much of a hassle for a modern day sex toy in my opinion. You can get a vibrating bullet that is more water resistant and has the same vibration intensity for the same price without all the flaws.
    • Great gag gift
Follow-up commentary
I wasn't really sure how to rate this. I still laugh every time I think of the packaging, but I still don't think this a toy you really want to use for its intended purpose. This is a toy you get for a gag, not to actually use.

    Good review! Sorry to hear the toy didn't work out. Shaki Toys is based out of Shenzhen, China. That would explain the odd phrases on the packaging.
  • Jenyana
    Great review, thanks! Too bad it didn't work out for you...

    The information in the package sounds absolutely hilarious, though. Might be worth getting if only for the laugh. XD
  • meitman
    It wasn't a terrible experience or anything. I just personally feel there are other toys that can do the job as well for the same price.

    I didn't even think about seeing where the company was based out of. I just assumed since they called it a Russian Torpedo that they were based out of Russia. That's funny! Thanks for the comment!
