The Sparkle Vibe from California Exotics is a powerful, yet budget friendly vibrator. Its compact size makes it a good choice for travel. Even though it is small in stature this little vibrator has BIG vibrations. The sparkle vibe is versatile. It can be used on many areas of the body, from the nipples to the clit, to an all over body massage. You won't be let down! It's perfect for solo play as well as partner play. Beginners will not be intimidated by this vibe and seasoned toy users will appreciate its power.

The small size and sparkles also makes this vibe a perfect party gift. It would be suitable as a gag gift or even as a cute party favor at a sex toy party or bachelorette party.

This toy is not waterproof and not recommended for water play. I also would advise against using this toy for anal play. It has nothing to stop it from getting lost!

Material / Texture

The Sparkle Vibe is made of sparkly, hard plastic. The plastic is food-grade material, hypo-allergenic, latex free, and phthalates free. It's very smooth, no ridges or texture of any kind. I believe that beginners would appreciate the smoothness for easy insertion, but might not care for the rigidness of it. This vibe does not have any smell or taste. It does not collect lint. I'm not certain how sturdy this toy is. I feel like it could break if you were to step on it. I don't think it would crack during use though.

Design / Shape / Size

As far as the design goes, this is a very traditional vibe as far as shape and size. It is also light weight. It's your classic porn vibrator, but what I was drawn to was the colors and sparkle! I got mine in pink, which is my favorite color. The extra pizzazz makes these an excellent gift.

The circumference (3 1/4") and diameter (1") equal a nice size for me, I have a hard time accommodating a larger girth so this is ideal. The toy itself is 5 1/2" in length but the insertable length is 4 1/2". That too is a good size. I wouldn't want something so rigid any longer than that, too pokey! Size queens need not apply.

This toy is super travel friendly!

Functions / Performance / Controls

This vibe's best attribute is probably its power. You get a lot of "bang" for your buck. It has a few different speeds that are controlled by a dial located on the bottom of the vibe. It does not have any fancy patterns, but you could make your own if you were determined. The dial is simple to use, but can slide out of your selected speed if you're not careful. The vibrations range from light to powerful. You can feel vibrations through the entire vibe, but the tip seems to have the most intense vibrations. It runs off of a single AA battery which keeps the entire price tag of this vibe low. This toy does make some noise, especially on the highest setting, but it cannot be heard under a blanket or behind a closed door. If you share a room or a bed with someone, they would be able to hear it.

Care and Maintenance

This toy is made out of plastic so it gets an 8 out of 10 on the material safety scale. This is primarily because it cannot be boiled. Regardless, clean up is easy! The most simple choice would be a toy wipe like Eden Toy and Body Wipes. They are a little on the expensive side, but a lot of times you can get them free with your purchase. Another easy choice would be an antibacterial toy spray like this. It's priced well and works, you just have to be careful not to drench this toy in it. If you don't want to spend any money, you can still clean your toy with antibacterial soap and water. You have to be more careful with this method because the toy is not waterproof. You should clean your toy before and after each use.

You can store this vibe inside its original packaging if you wish, or practically anywhere it won't get stepped on. Always take the battery out before storing. It will lengthen your battery life and protect against any corrosion accidents that might occur.

As far as lubes go, this toy can handle water, oil, or silicone based lubricants. Since this toy is targeted at women I wouldn't recommend oil based lubes, unless it is coconut oil. I would also recommend staying away from lubes that contain glycerin unless you know how your body reacts to it. Healthy girly bits equal happy girly bits!

The Sparkle Vibe comes in a clear plastic package that states it is part of the Shane's World line from California Exotics. It is not discreet. The front of the package has a girl clutching her breast and trying her best to look provocative. It's rather silly! It also has product features on the front.

On the back it has the web address of the manufacturers website. It also has information about the batteries and when to clean the toy. It clearly states that this toy is not waterproof.

The packaging is great for storage. It snaps back together like it has never been opened. If I was going to gift this I would probably put it in different packaging because of the cheesy model!
    • Good for storage
    • Not discreet


I bought this vibe because of the price tag. My budget was tight after Christmas but I really wanted a vibe since the death of a more expensive vibe that I had owned for years. So this was a impulse buy for sure. I have not been disappointed. I get the most pleasure out of this by setting it on a lower speed and putting the tip of the vibe right on my clit. As I said before you can insert this toy, but I don't enjoy it as much that way. It's not pliable enough for me.
