Girl's Best Friend?

Overall, I was disappointed in this product. If you're someone that keeps lube around, go for it - otherwise, don't bother.
Surprisingly strong vibrations
Easy to clean
Collects dust and fuzz
Lube required
Vibrations are hard to feel in clit stimulator
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


This is one of those products that is very "take it or leave it" for me. I think it functions better as a clitoral stimulator than as an internal vibrator. I don't like the fact that I have to use lube with it, whether to insert the mini bullet vibe into the toy itself or just to get it inside me. That bothers me because I don't always have lube readily available. It also doesn't provide the length that I usually prefer, but that's just a personal preference. However, I wouldn't toss this toy out completely. It does provide discreet stimulation in the form of an easy to clean product.

Material / Texture

The dolphin is made of TPR silicone. It's latex-free and hypoallergenic. The covering is not smooth, but rather pitted and textured, which is great for stimulation but collects dust and dirt easily.

Upon removing the toy from its packaging, I found that there was next to no odor or overpowering smell. I did like that, because it usually means that any odor it holds will go away within the first few washes.

Design / Shape / Size

This vibrator is two and a half inches long, so it's very small compared to my usual vibrators. This is the kind of vibrator I would insert for stimulation while I'm engaging in other sexual play. I generally prefer something with more length.

The dolphin covering is detailed to look like an actual dolphin. It works to focus the vibrations in the "nose" of the toy and the hooked tail provides clitoral stimulation. The problem here is that the vibrations are all in the nose and you can barely feel them on your clit.

The design is also very discreet. After you remove the mini bullet vibe, you really can't tell that it's a vibrator at all.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The vibe is small but relatively powerful. The vibrations are controlled by a twist knob on the end of the vibe. There is a slight difference between the lowest setting and the highest. The change is more gradual, so it's hard at first to notice a difference. Also, the material of the dolphin covering is thick enough that the vibrations are dulled somewhat.

This toy is not very loud at all. It cannot be heard through a closed door, and it's very quiet beneath the sheets. It's a great toy for those living with other people, but I wouldn't recommend it if you're sharing a bedroom.
    • Discreet sound
    • Easy to use

Care and Maintenance

As far as cleaning goes, it's pretty simple. Just remove the bullet and wipe with a wet wash cloth or spray down with toy cleaner and wipe clean. Because the cover has a lot of pits and places for dirt and bacteria to collect, it has to be cleaned very carefully. After you have removed the bullet, scrub the cover in warm water and antibacterial soap or toy cleaner. You could even soak it in warm water for a little while before scrubbing as an added precaution.
    • Easy to clean
Follow-up commentary
I still like this toy, although I don't use it as much anymore. It isn't the best product in my "toy box" but I do enjoy it from time to time.

    Hey - I edited your review. It's great that you included a lot of detail, but one thing I did notice while I was reading it was that you seem to be using the toy in a way that's different from the intended use (I think this vibe is mostly supposed to be a clitoral toy rather than a dual-action vibe). That's not a criticism, since you can obviously use a toy however you want to, but I did wonder whether it's, I don't know, fair to dock points off a toy for not being good at something it wasn't designed for. I don't know - just something to think about

    Thank you!

    @pasdechat- I docked points for the fact that the you collects dust and fuzz easily and the vibrations are hard to feel in clitoral stimulator, which is, in fact, the tail of the dolphin. The toy is mean to be inserted into the vagina, otherwise they wouldn't have put ridges for stimulation on the tail.

    thank you for sharing. This wouldn't be strong enough for me.
