Good if you're on a budget

Overall, I do not recommend this product if you can afford anything better. But, if price is your concern then it will definitely get the job done in a pinch. It can get loud, especially after repeated use, loud enough that I have been questioned about the sound through a wall. Note that these were very thin walls, and I think in most places this would not be an issue. You can change the intensity, but sometimes that just isn't enough.
It's easy to use, intuitive, and budget friendly. Convenient to stow away, easy to take on trips.
Battery consumption and sound. Not recommended for roommate situations.

useful review


The Sparkle vibes is a good toy if you need something cheap and quick. It doesn't have a lot of penetration value but is good for clit stimulation. The biggest problem I have with this toy is the battery consumption. If you want to buy a toy to use for a long time, this might not be a good choice. Even though the starting price is cheap, you'll need to factor in the cost of those batteries you will need to replace quickly. You can't use it in the bath or shower, and it feels "cheap" so I wouldn't suggest you be too rough with it.

    • Clitoris

Material / Texture

The material is a hard plastic. There are no discernible ridges, the entire thing is smooth except for the base where you can control the vibrations which has ridges (those can help you change speeds if your fingers are a little slippery). The lack of texture makes it feel boring to me if used for penetration.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

It's small, under six inches total, with less length to use for actual penetration. The shape is very simple and practical, just a cone that vibrates. Size wise, it worked well for travel, could pack it in your carry-on luggage without an issue (plus you get to see it on the x-ray machine).
    • Beginner
    • Partner play

Functions / Performance / Controls

The controls for the intensity are located at the base, which screws off and is where you insert the batteries. Personally, I think that it goes through batteries too quickly and the more often you use it, the more strained (loud) it sounds. This toy is not waterproof. The best function for me is clitoral stimulation, and I am hesitant to even try it anally. The controls are intuitive, although would be nice if there were more settings. Understandably, that could be a bit much to ask for such an economic toy.
    • Battery guzzler
    • Easy to use
    • Not discreet at all

Care and Maintenance

Wash this toy with soap and water. Do not boil it. If you're going to share, just use a condom for it. It's easy to stow away in a drawer or even in a purse if you happen to have company that might decide to borrow a pair of socks without asking.
    • Easy to clean
