Glowing Weakness

Glo Mini by Doc Johnson is a cute toy but just not powerful enough for me. On the highest vibration setting, the intensity level is only a 3 out of 5. Also, the vibrations are buzzy rather than rumbly. The toy has a number of great features such as being waterproof, having a variety of functions, and it glows in the dark. It'd be a good toy for those who prefer buzzy vibrations on the lower intensity levels.
Glows in the dark, colour options, easy to use, 10 functions, waterproof, inexpensive.
Gap between bullet and silver coloured area, material safety, buzzy low-intensity vibrations.
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review
Glo Mini by Doc Johnson is available in a number of vibrant colours. I received the blue coloured toy to review but it’s also available in yellow, orange, and pink. The bullet arrived in a cardboard package. The front of the packaging states the name of the product, size, and a couple of features. There is also a plastic window at the front of the package to see the toy inside. The back of the packaging states a bunch of product features, material of the bullet, company contact information, and website. The packaging could be used for storing the toy or it can be recycled. It’s a small toy so I recycled the packaging to conserve space.


Glo Mini is made of ABS and PVC with Sil-A-Gel. The top of the bullet seems to be the part made of PVC with the base of the toy being ABS (plastic). PVC has a pretty low rating on EdenFantasys safety scale but the product page fails to mention the Sil-A-Gel. PVC has a safety rating of only 2 out of 10, but Sil-A-Gel is a 5 out of 10. The guide to materials states that Sil-A-Gel is “completely antibacterial” but I won’t use the toy without a condom covering it because the rating is so low. I’d definitely recommend covering it with a condom if you plan on sharing the toy.


The toy has a rubbery scent to it but you need to put your nose right up to the toy to smell it. The toy also has a rubbery taste to it. The bullet is firm with no flexibility to it. The bullet is smooth with no textures. The material has a bit of drag to it but this can easily be remedied with lubrication. The toy is compatible with both water-based and silicone-based lubricants.

The toy can be inserted vaginally or used externally. There is no flared base to the toy so it shouldn’t be used anally. The total length of the toy is approximately 4 inches. The insertable portion of the bullet (the blue part) measures just a tad over 2 ½ inches in length and has a circumference of 3 inches. Below is a size comparison photo of the toy beside a 355mL can of pop.


The toy requires 1x AA battery, which is not included. The bottom of the toy (the white part) twists off the bullet to access the compartment. It’s really easy to access and close. There is a clear O-ring above the cap to ensure that no water gets into the battery compartment. The toy is waterproof so it can be brought into the bath, shower, etc. Just be sure to close the lid tightly before bringing it into the water.


There is just one button to the toy and it is located at the very bottom of the base. To turn the toy on, click it once. When the toy is on, the button lights up a white colour. The setting you’re met with when you first turn the toy on is the highest, constant vibration. There are a total of 10 functions to Glo Mini. To cycle through the different settings you just continue pressing the button at the base of the toy.


The settings are as follows:

1. High, constant vibration
2. Medium, constant vibration
3. Low, constant vibration
4. Very fast pulses escalating from low to high
5. Fast pulses, low intensity
6. Medium pulses, high intensity
7. Very fast pulses, high intensity
8. Very fast pulses, medium intensity
9. Long pulses, high intensity
10. Very fast pulses, low intensity

The toy can be turned off at any time by holding the button down for a few seconds. When you turn the toy back on, you’re met with the next function from the one you had left of on. So for example, if you turned the toy off while on the third setting (low, constant vibration) and then you turned it back on, the toy would then be on the fourth setting, which is the fast, escalating pulses. If you want to be back at the very first setting when you turn the toy back on, you’ll need to twist off the battery compartment lid and then twist it back on.

The toy glows in the dark, which is kind of cool. I found that if I held the toy under the light for 30 seconds or so that the glow was much brighter. I, personally, don’t really care if my toys glow in the dark but it’s a fun feature for those that do. The vibrations are strongest at the head of the bullet but can be felt throughout the entire body of the toy. The noise level to the toy can be heard from beneath the covers but not through a closed door. I submerged the toy in water and it works perfectly.

The vibrations are buzzy rather than rumbly and are a 3 out of 5 vroom level on the highest setting (first function). Sadly, that just isn’t enough power for me. I need at least a 4 out of 5 vroom level and prefer the deep, buzzy vibrations. I was not able to satisfy myself with this toy. This toy will probably just be used as an external vibrator on my partner (testicles, etc) since he prefers the weak-moderate levels of vibration.

With no texture and being waterproof, Glo Mini is really easy to clean. You can clean the toy with soap and water, toy wipes, or a toy cleaning spray. Though the one thing that concerned me was the gap between the bottom of the bullet and the silver coloured ring. If you’re using lubricant or inserting the bullet, that gap can collect fluids. This is the part of the toy that you’ll want to pay extra attention to when cleaning. It helps that the toy can be submerged in water when cleaning but it would have been nice if there were no gap at all.

I’ve given the toy a 3 out of 5 star rating. It’s not necessarily a bad toy but I don’t find it that fabulous either. The material safety is rather low so it is best to use a condom with the toy. It’d be best suited for those who prefer buzzy vibrations to the rumbly ones and those who don’t need much power to be satisfied. I’m power hungry and this toy doesn’t satisfy my appetite.
