Play pal Thumper - traditional vibrator by Cal Exotics - review by TinyTease

Pungent Feel Good Fun

Its non pliable core provides endless moments of firm thrusting, while the outer skin is quite forgiving and gentle on yours. This skin is very realistic feeling and warms up to your body. Its waterproof and multi-function feature make it fun both in and out of water, and being phthalate free, you can play with this toy knowing your body is safe. A little on the thick side, the Thumper is a good choice for those wanting a moderately full feeling without being stretched.
Phthalate free, realistic feeling texture, waterproof, multi-speed.
Strong scent, it would be nice to have a separate power button, can be difficult to grip with lube.
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


The Play Pal Thumper surely must have been designed solely as a vaginal toy. The tapered tip allows for easy vaginal entry and the little bumps at the neck allow for very subtle texture. When used for breast or clitoral stimulation, the soft skin of the toy allows for a very comfortable sensation when rubbed against, however the vibrations seem best suited for internal stimulation. But, do not use in your bum as there is no flared base on this toy, and it is somewhat easy to lose your grip on the realistic skin. This also makes it useless for strap on play.

Easy to use alone during solo intimate encounters as well as couple or group play. Its waterproof feature offers the freedom to use in the bedroom, the tub, the sauna or your best friends jacuzzi!

Material / Texture

The velvety soft, pliable outer layer of Pure Skin is, by far the next best thing since sliced bread. It feels fantastic - like real skin, just colder. The nice thing about the skin is that it does warm up quite nicely while using it, and with the waterproof feature, you could even heat up the Thumper in a bowl of water beforehand! It's smooth and silky and provides a wonderfully smooth ride during thrusting. The only off-putting thing about this material is the scent and taste is quite strong.

The Pure Skin is layered over a firm core that really holds its shape while in use, even during vigorous thrusting. This could be a positive or a negative depending on whether or not you prefer a firm toy. While the core stands tall, the Pure Skin does offer a lovely, soft give, allowing the Play Pal Thumper to mimic the feel of a VERY erect member.

Design / Shape / Size

Thumper has an interesting shape. It somewhat resembles a non-phallic penis. It does look like a penis, doesn't at the same time. I would call it a friendly looking member. One you wouldn't mind inviting over for dinner. The tip is slightly elongated and tapered at the end. This allows for very easy entry and pinpointing where you would like the pressure. At the neck of the shaft, there are 3 subtle bumps which are barely noticeable during thrusting. The bottom half of the shaft is simple and smooth, covered in Pure Skin, while the very base is hard plastic. In the center of the base, you will find a cute, clear push button which activates the three vibration settings.

This toy is a tiny bit on the thicker side, so it may not be suitable for those just beginning with penetration. Those who like a moderately full feeling, but do not enjoy feeling stretched would most likely benefit from the Thumpers girth. It is average in length, however, so, keep that in mind - it isn't really designed for discretion. It is not a toy that would be easy to hide in a purse or pillow case, but one could certainly hide it inside a pair of socks if need be.

Functions / Performance / Controls

Thumper is activated by pressing the single button at the base of the toy and there are three vibration settings: Low, Moderate and Medium. Simply click through to find the setting you want, but keep in mind there is no back button or a separate power button. All this means is if you click past the setting you want, you will have to click through all the settings, including "off", to get back to the one you desire.

The vibrations are found centralized in the shaft, so Thumper provides the most stimulation when inserted. The intensity of the vibrations are probably enough for most people, but if you crave high intensity, you may find this toy to fall short.

The Play Pal Thumper is certainly no silent lover, but one would have a hard time hearing it on the highest setting through a closed door or under water. And YES! It does perform just as well in the water as it does out. Just be sure to use a nice water based lubricant for water play.

Care and Maintenance

As Pure Skin is a mix of silicone and PVC, you can ONLY use water based lubes with it. Oil and silicone can break it down. It is also quite porous, so it is best to use with a condom (especially if you plan on sharing) and make sure to wash before and after each use with either a toy cleaner or mild antibacterial soap and water. It is also best to dust it lightly with corn starch after it dries to keep its wonderfully skin like texture. Store in a sealed plastic bag out of direct sunlight for maximum life.


I have enjoyed using my Play Pal Thumper - without a condom - but I always make sure to wash it afterward. I personally prefer a toy with a little more bend to it, but I think that this toy will be a good choice for those who like a very firm, but realistic feel. Really, this toy feels incredible because of the Pure Skins texture. It is my absolute favorite feature of the toy.

    Thank you, Sammi! I did forget to mention in my review that a very light dusting of corn starch renewed its original feel completely! It's so great.

    Yeah, it does kill a few things for me, but it has a lot of other great aspects.
