Minivibe Little Paul - discreet vibrator by Fun Factory - review by solly

Add resource

Little and Feisty!

With his bright and cheery colors, cute smile, and range of powerful vibrations, Little Paul is sure to win a place in your heart! This is definitely a toy worth considering if you are looking for more power in a smaller size. While the ability to recharge would be nice, this toy is not a battery guzzler, and you are still getting the same high-quality that Fun Factory prides themselves upon in a more compact and less expensive package.
Cute design, good for beginners, body-safe materials
Not rechargeable, might be too small for some

useful review


As soon as Little Paul arrived in the mail, I was very excited to try him! Though he is of a modest size, he packs a powerful punch and provides an impressive range of vibrations. Little Paul can be used solo or with a partner, internally or externally. Because this toy does not have a flared base, it should not be used anally. I am a bit of a power-queen, but Little Paul provided more than enough stimulation for me while using him with my partner. My partner, who does not prefer such strong vibrations, commented on how powerful she thought this toy was and was happy to have something to play with in a size and design that wasn't overwhelming or intimidating. With his charming smile, Little Paul is sure to win a place in your heart!

Material / Texture

This toy is made from Fun Factory's blend of medical-grade silicone, with a hard plastic control pad at the base. It is completely body-safe so you can use this toy with no worries. It is soft, squishy and has a bit of drag to the surface. I found that this texture added to the stimulation the toy provided while in use, and it also helps lubricant cling to the toy. The ridges on the toy also provide extra stimulation both during penetration and externally, by moving the toy back and forth. The head of the toy is curved and somewhat flexible, which helps with hitting your G-spot.

Design / Shape / Size

Little Paul measures in at 5 1/2 inches in height and has a circumference of 4 1/2 inches. I personally found the design of this toy to be charming, and the bright green color is very cheerful to look at. This little guy's smile won me over and the cute design and modest size makes him easy for anyone--even total beginners--to use. While I wouldn't call him totally discreet, it might be possible for someone to mistake him as a kid's toy at first glance. It would be easy to travel with Little Paul, since his small size makes it easy to fit him almost anywhere you want to store him.

Functions / Performance / Controls

I am somewhat new to Fun Factory's line of toys, having only tried one of their older toys previously, and I have to say that the vibration patterns they use are certainly unique. While I found myself wishing for a constant, standard vibration that was adjustable, I started to warm up to the variety of patterns after a while. This is definitely a toy that grows on you. The controls are located near the base of the toy and you simply press the (+) and (-) buttons to cycle through the vibrations or to turn the toy off. Little Paul's vibrations are very quiet and I could not hear them through a closed door.

The battery compartment is very well designed and I am impressed to see this much quality in a battery-operated toy--there's no struggle with correctly inserting and removing batteries from Little Paul! Simply unscrew the cap at the base of the toy and insert two AAA batteries into the labeled slots, and replace the cap when you are done. According to the user manual, the toy is waterproof as long as the base is securely and correctly screwed shut. While I have not tested this out myself, I am confident that the toy would operate fine while being used in the bathtub, shower, or any other place you want to have a wet and wild adventure with your new toy.

Care and Maintenance

Little Paul is made of silicone, so he should only be used with water-based lubricants. To clean this toy, you can use any standard sex toy cleaner or wipes, or good old fashioned soap and water. Because it is an electronic toy, it cannot be boiled, autoclaved, or stuck in the dishwasher--unless you want to break the poor little guy! It is very easy to care for, and although the silicone does attract lint (this is a property that almost all silicone toys I own share), a quick rinse under some water before use will remove any remaining debris. Fun Factory does not provide a storage pouch with their toys so for now I am storing him in his packaging until I have time to sew him his own drawstring bag--you may also choose to keep your new toy in a zippered, plastic bag. Because of his size, it is a breeze to store Little Paul anywhere you want him.

Follow-up commentary
This toy has been great for my partner to use, but I haven't used it as much myself since I prefer my more powerful toys. Still, it has a place in our toy box and I'm glad that we gave it a try!

    Fixed the measurements again - sorry! I always get diameter and circumference mixed up but yes, he is 4.5" measured all the way around.
