Not Blasting away, but at Least There's Take Off

As a freebie, the Velvet Pocket Rocket us a good one. It's even a good value if you are looking for an affordable toy with an average strength. So long as you are okay with some minor aesthetic issues and don't need bells or whistles, this can be a toy for you.
Good Value
Decent Strength
Plastic Gets unseemly scratches, battery cage can fall out, vibes are buzzy.

extremely useful review


The Velvet pocket Rocket by Doc Johnson is, well, a pocket rocket. This little vibe is designed for the lady on the go. It's small, easy to travel with, and easy to use. The Velvet pocket rocket is designed for external stimulation of the clitoris as well as other erogenous zones (It would be plain uncomfortable to put it in any entrance, and dangerous for anal). The cap for the toy can also be removed, so there are two different textures for the price of one.

This toy is a good choice for beginners and those who want a moderately strong toy for a good price. it is highly affordable (or free, since it was an EF freebie). More advanced users will probably be bored by this one. It's also an option for those who need a toy that is not loud, especially if you live in a dorm situation. The pocket rocket is also waterproof, so it could be used for shower play as well.

Material / Texture

This pocket rocket is made mostly of plastic. Plastic ranks an 8 out of 10 on the Eden safety scale. While it is plastic, there appears to be some coating on the body of the toy. It feels velvety, like Velvet Cote or polyurethane. Either way, the coatings are generally a 7 or 8 on the safety scale. It is also non porous, so it will last longer and bacteria won't thrive inside the toy.

There is texture on the switch of the toy. It has ribbing to make it easy to turn and use. The top also has texture. The clear plastic top has multiple, hard nodes on it. You can remove the top with a little elbow grease and you can use the metal, rounded nodes on the toy. Do note that if you removed the plastic top, you might get scratch marks on the plastic of the toy.

The texture is apparent but manageable for beginners. It can also titillate those who love texture as well. The entire toy is solid and unyielding. It will stay where you apply pressure. There is no overt odor to this toy.

Design / Shape / Size

The Velvet Pocket Rocket is small, which makes it easy to travel with. It is 4 inches long and is 3.25 inches around at its widest point. Since it is an external toy, size matters most in terms of travel and ease of handeling. The texture at the dial base and overall shape make it easy to hold. The size is friendly to all types of experience.

The design is that of a classic pocket rocket. The useable portion is small compared to the rest of the toy. This also means that you can't move this toy around as much since you only have a small amount of space that can hit your hot zones.

The Velvet pocket rocket can easily fit in a purse or zipper pocket. You can even keep the battery in when traveling since it does require some force to turn this toy on. In terms of sound, this toy clocks in at about 2 Bees. If you throw a thick blanket over you won't be heard beyond you door. If there is background noise, you could probably get away with only a blanket.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The controls are simple and easy to use. The bottom of the toy has a turn dial. It takes a bit of force to twist the toy on. It can be twisted to just one vibe setting. Overall, the strength of the toy is a fit for a user with average to high sensitivity. if you have a clit o' steel or require high vibrations, this toy won't work for you.

The vibrations are more buzzy than rumbly in nature. They don't travel as well as rumbly toys do. Still, given the price of the toy, it has a decent value.

The Velvet Pocket Rocket has an O-ring, making it waterproof. I would say this toy is better suited for the shower than the full submersion of the bath, but it should be all right. The Velvet Pocket Rocket takes 1 AA battery (the product page is incorrect) and the battery seems to last a while.

Care and Maintenance

Care for the Velvet Pocket Rocket is easy. It can be washed with soap and water, toy cleaner, or wet wipes. Just take extra care to clean the debris that can gather around the nodes of the toy. If you tend to use the toy with the plastic cap on, take care in cleaning the rim where it caps on.

Both silicone and water based lubricant's can be used with this toy.

    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


The packaging for this toy is very minimal. As an Eden freebie, is comes in a little, clear plastic bag (almost like a sealed sandwich bag). This toy could be a great option as a gift for a beginner.

Personal comments

Overall, this toy is probably best for a beginner trying to figure out their likes and dislikes. Even if you end up not liking this toy, just learning more aout your preferences is still worth the cost of this toy. If you have OCD, I would advise you against this one. The toy is visually appealing enough (nothing fancy, but not bad at all), but if you decide to remove the plastic cap, you can scratch it. You see white scratch marks and it makes the toy look cheap and half-broken.

Another caution is that I would not use this in a tub. You should also be careful not to open the battery cage on accident. Just be familiar with the toy and where it comes undone so you don't ruin it in the shower.

    Oh, forgot to mention! While I pictured a lilac pocket rocket, I own both colors. So it does kind still count, right?

    Great review--I think these are nice for a rocket, but agree with you as far as more beginner based items.
