Smelly Flower!

I would not recommend this toy to anyone; not because it doesn't perform but it is so repulsive. If I had a vase, I would probably display, but for sexual play, I don't think this little guy is coming out for another performance.
Affordable, Pretty!
Strong Odor, Slimy, a bit weak, Jelly
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


This toy is meant for vaginal penetration and for solo play/ couple play. Use a condom with this toy though! I was stimulated somewhat by this toy but it does not scream with power. Because this toy bends in the middle, you can also manipulate the toy for g-spot play, which I found was a little better than using a traditional vibrator. The toy does not have a tapered off bottom, so I do not recommend this for anal play. In the end, I had to use another toy to finish me off; not because it was not strong enough, but because I did not care for the smell. This toy is meant for a beginner level. You can use this toy either in bed or the tub because it is water proof, and performs well. (It's a bit weaker in the tub, however).

Material / Texture

The material is made of jelly and thus is porous. Jelly ranks as a 2 on the Eden scale, and because it is porous, I would highly recommend using a condom with each use, especially if you are sharing this toy with other individuals. When I opened the box, the first thing I noticed was the smell. I have not had a toy that smells before, so this was a bit of a turn off for me. When I touched the toy, it seems to have an almost weird sweat to it- it is moist to the touch, especially the head of the toy.The toy is incredibly squishy, but has a firm form. The toy has bumps that resemble petals, which I feel did lend itself to some stimulation, but not a lot. If you are looking for some texture that will not overwhelm you, this toy will deliver it. The bottom of the toy has a small decoration which gives the toy a bit of a fun texture; however, because it is placed so low on the toy and basically out of reach for vaginal stimulation, it is more for decoration purposes rather than for a functional purpose. One major downside that I have noticed is that the toy will collect lint and dirt incredibly quickly, even if it is in a clean toy box. I will not be storing this toy with my other toys. I would not recommend this toy to anyone, but since Eden asks me to, I would say this would be appropriate for beginners.

Design / Shape / Size

I really like the design of this toy; it slightly resembles a flower, which I feel is just beautiful. It is long and narrow. Because it does not have a flared base, I would only recommend this for vaginal use and keep away from anal use. The toy bends in the middle, which allows for some good g-spot play; I think that was my favorite part about the toy. Many traditional vibes tend to forget about this part in a woman, but this toy definitely allows for stimulation here. The ridges provided a bit of stimulation, but I feel overall, they were meant for more of an aesthetic purpose rather than a functional purpose. The toy is about the same size as typical dildos- not too big and not too small. The whole toy is about 8 inches, but has about 6 inches of insertable length, or about the length of the average penis. It has a circumference of 5 inches and a diameter of 1 5/8 inches, which is about the diameter of an average penis. If you are a size queen, which I definitely am, this toy is not meant for you. However, if you are a beginner looking for a pretty dildo that will not overwhelm you with gimmicks (ie texture, size, vibration power), I would recommend this type of toy. This toy could be passed off as being discreet if you showed this to a truly naive individual, but I think most people would have some idea of what its actual function is if they saw it. I think this toy is suitable for travel; just remember to separate this toy from everything else because it will attract any and all dirt near. You could easily stow this in your purse.

Functions / Performance / Controls

At the bottom of the toy, there is turn dial which allows for many levels of stimulation to occur. I felt the toy was a bit weak, even at its highest setting, especially for advanced users. This toy would be more appropriate for beginners that wish to experiment with a vibrator. I was a bit annoyed with turn dial vibrations because I had to consciously change the vibration with my other hand while I was trying to masturbate (I was first introduced to button controls, though, and I think that may be the reason I'm so prejudiced against turn dial controls). My favorite attribute about this toy is that its waterproof and if you desire to take it into the tub, that can easily be done. However, the toy's power in the toy is no stronger than it is in the water, so if you desire, I would recommend taking another toy to finish you off. I'm not a fan of the use of batteries; I would much rather plug this toy in and charge it. However, battery power allows a toy to be more discreet, so this may be the toy for you after all- it really depends what you're into. This toy isn't overtly noisy, but I would for sure not use this with someone else in the room (unless that's what you want to do).
    • Medium strength
    • Multiple settings
    • Not very discreet

Care and Maintenance

This toy is made of jelly!!! So it is going to be a little bit more annoying to take care of than if you bought a toy made of plastic or silicone. First off, if you want to create as little of a mess as possible, I would highly, highly recommend the use of a condom. That way, your toy will not absorb any of your juices, bacteria, and whatever else that may be present. However, if you decide to forgo the condom, I will warn you now, it will be almost impossible to clean and you may be making yourself available to bacterial infections and other health risks. Now that I've warned you plenty, I'll tell you how to clean it. If you are going to use soap and water, first make sure the battery is tightly closed and then clean it. Dry it off with a paper towel. You may also use toy cleaner/ anti bacterial wipes. Do not boil or bleach your toy because you will ruin it. I would use water based lube; I'm not sure if I would use silicone lube because it may ruin the toy. When you store this toy, store it separately in a special lint free case (I would recommend a metal box) and from your other toys or it will attract all sorts of gunk to settle on them
    • Difficult to store
    • Hard to clean
    • High maintenance


I think my favorite thing about this toy is the packaging. Not because it is amazing or anything, but because I found it highly humorous. It is not discreet at all- it has a window which displays your toy in all its glory. On the sides of the toy, there are pictures of women seductively playing with the toy. It is not a type of box that is meant for long term use. The box states what the toy is, has some cheesy phrases and that's pretty much it. However, it is recyclable, if you are not afraid of being judged by your recycle man/ woman.

Personal comments

I really don't like this toy. I felt the power was okay, but I think what turned me off was the material. I never tried a toy with a smell that pungent, and I was so repulsed that I had to switch to my fairy (which I absolutely love; if you want to read my review on that, do it!). The feel of the jelly material was disgusting; I never met a toy that actually sweats prior to any play. All in all, if you are looking for an affordable vibrator, this is NOT it. Eden has plenty of quality toys that are not as repulsive as this.
    • Slimy
    • Strong odor
Follow-up commentary
I'll be honest; I've only used this one other time after I wrote my original review (with a condom of course). I found that when I used it a second time, there were strong vibes that were not there originally, but then faltered in the middle of play. I tried to tinker with it a bit, but I found that its power can be a bit unpredictable. After playing the power modes for a few times, I found that it can have very weak vibrations or some very strong vibrations (a little bit more than regular vibe), but with a lot of inconsistency.

The smell has diminished only a little bit even after I washed five to six times. I store it away from all my other toys because I really don't need my nicer toys to smell. Even for a jelly toy, the stench is a bit overwhelming.

I wouldn't recommend this to anyone, unless they want a toy with somewhat unpredictable vibrations that they only need for one or two times; otherwise, steer clear of it
