Although there may be better vibes out there, this one was good for my first toy. It can be used to stimulate multiple points on the body and is quiet enough for apartment living. It would be good for someone looking for a vibrator with a little more give than traditional plastic vibes.
Great shape, Flexible, Waterproof
Strong smell

extremely useful review


This was my very first vibrator! I was impressed by the jelly material and found the color friendly and unintimidating. It has a great battery life in comparison to other toys I've read reviews for. The toy is waterproof which makes it very easy to clean, even if you choose plain soap and water. Lanny's Vivid Dreams is controlled by a dial, and while I thought the range may have been too small, it was a nice, simple method of control. I'm definitely glad I got this particular vibrator as my first.

Material / Texture

Upon first opening the package, Lanny's Vivid Dreams did have a very strong plastic-y smell. While I happen to like the smell, it doesn't necessarily belong on a sex-toy. The scent did fade with just one wash.

The vibrator is definitely solid, but the jelly material has a slight give to it. The entire vibrator is relatively flexible, I could bend it almost in half. I had to use (water based) lubricant with it, and on skin the jelly material has a higher drag than most smooth plastics. The swirled texture is similar to ribs and definitely adds to the experience.

Because this is a Jelly toy (and therefore porous) it should not be shared or used for anal and vaginal stimulation without the use of a clean condom with each switch. This particular vibrator also should probably not be used anally because the base does not flare at all and is actually slightly smaller then the vibrator above it.
    • Flexible
    • Somewhat porous
    • Strong odor

Design / Shape / Size

I found the design and color pretty. I now realize I probably should not have bought a jelly vibrator as my first vibe as there is definitely a learning curve. However, because it is only mildly phallic and is not flesh toned, it is good for someone who is intimidated by the more realistic vibrators out there. The ability of the material to bend was nice, especially since it did not bend too much.

The bulb at the top houses the vibrator which makes it good for clitoral stimulation. The color is bright and the shape is obvious, so I probably would not travel with this vibrator.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The battery compartment was not labeled, so it took two tries to put the batteries in the right way, but once they were in, operation was straight forward. The controls are one knob on the base, which is textured, making it easy to turn with just one hand.

The vibrator has multiple speeds, and the dial makes the transitions between speeds less sudden and jarring. The highest speed is not too strong (as a first vibrator). At it's quietest you cannot hear it under covers, and at it's loudest you still cannot hear it through a closed door. The noise it produces is more of a steady buzz, you would not mistake it for a cellphone.

At its strongest setting it is still pretty quiet, and I felt comfortable using it in my dorm room. The vibrator is waterproof, and proved itself by not showing any water in the battery compartment after being submerged, and more importantly after being rubbed to wash. It seems to have a good battery life, but I was not running it at full power for most of the time.

The actual vibrating motor is in the tip of the toy, making it good for multiple points of stimulation. The vibrations also traveled the length of the toy quite nicely.
    • Discreet sound
    • Easy to use
    • Long lasting power

Care and Maintenance

This toy was easy to wash with soap and water. It can't be sterilized because of the material, but the use of a condom to cover it can take care of this problem. The packaging is bright and obvious, so I'm probably not going to store it in its package long term. This toy should only be used with water or silicone based lubes.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


The packaging has the scantily clad Lanny right on the front. It has a pink color scheme and lists several features on the front. I do think the package has nice aesthetics, but it isn't very subtle. The package was easy to open. There were no instructions included, but Lanny's Vivid Dreams was easy to figure out.
    • Not discreet


As someone new to the world of vibrators, I was not expecting the toy to be more than purely functional. Lanny's Vivid Dream proved me wrong. The texture of the vibrator was smooth with a slight give, not like the hard plastic I had seen previously. I don't think it is good for someone who absolutely needs G-spot stimulation, but the bulbed end was easy to position for a short amount of time (longer or with more pressure gave my hand a cramp). Because the motor is in the tip, it is great for clitoral stimulation. Since it was my first vibrator I think there was a bit of a learning curve. I couldn't finish the first few times I used it. However, once I figured out what I liked, I was really pleased and surprised with the results!

    I can't stand stinky toys - it really puts a dampener on them!

    Great review
  • naughtyjo
    Great review, thanks! I wonder if this is similar to the current 'free with every order' vibe EF are giving away at the moment? Stinky toys are a pain, hopefully that smell fades with time xx

    Oh, it is, I just checked, but it's different material -- not jelly. Now I'm really happy, because one is in the post, on it's way to me WOOT

    Good review. I am glad the toy was fully waterproof, because some times it will say waterproof & not be. Does this toy have an O ring?
