Sunrise UR3 soft sleeve and vibrator - traditional vibrator by Doc Johnson - review by kandy anjel

Sunrise is not so sunny

Compared to the other UR3 products that I have tried, this vibe falls very short of my expectations. It may be great for beginners, but not so great for advanced users. Thank goodness it's not an expensive toy.
Good vibrations, Discreet, Low Cost
The smell, Sleeve does not stay in place, High maitenance

useful review


The "sunrise UR3 soft sleeve and vibrator" is intended for vaginal insertion, but it may be used for clitoral stimulation. However, I don't recommend using it for the anal insertion due to the fact that this material is very porous and there is no flared base. I'd have to say this toy is more for beginner toy users than for advanced. This toy may be used solo, or with a partner. This could also be a good toy for couples who want to start trying to bring in toys to spice things up. The price is very inexpensive compared to a lot of vibes.

Material / Texture

The vibe is made of hard plastic with a sleeve. The sleeve is made of Ultra Realistic 3.0 (UR3) material which is meant to mimic real skin. This material is given a safety rating of 2 of 10 by Eden. The low rating is because the UR3 material is very porous. It picks up lint, dirt and hair. The toy also smells like chemicals. It actually made me sneeze when I smelled it. And the smell does not fade when washing as with some toys. It felt soft to the touch. The sleeve does not stay in place. When using it the sleeve will slide and buckle. There are a couple ribs on the head but they aren't really that noticeable at all. I'd have to say this toy is more for beginners than for advanced toy users.

    • Strong odor

Design / Shape / Size

The design of this toy is a simple straight vibe. The UR3 sleeve has a little ribbed design on the head. It's supposed to add extra stimulation, but they are pretty much unnoticeable. The size of this vibe is 7 1/2" long and 2" thick. The size is good for most users whether advanced or beginner. It's easy to hide and travel with, but I'd be careful how you pack it because it is a major lint magnet. This is a good vibe without the sleeve. I still recommend it for beginners.

Functions / Performance / Controls

This vibe has great vibrations, but that is about the only great feature. The strongest vibrations are located up towards the head of the toy. The sleeve is definitely the downfall of this vibe. It's intended to add stimulation, and it may for some, but not for me. The sleeve does not stay in place and does not feel realistic like most UR3 toys do. The sleeve is very inconvenient. I say this because not only to you have to keep fixing the sleeve every couple seconds, but you have to be very careful because of the dirt and germs it hides. The toy isn't very noisy though, which I always find to be a good thing.
    • Discreet sound
    • Not enough variety

Care and Maintenance

This toy is high maintenance to clean. You must wash before and after each use because the material is very porous. You should take off the sleeve to clean both the vibrator and the sleeve. I say this because I noticed after using it, fluids had leaked in between the sleeve and the vibe. You should clean with warm water and antibacterial soap, or toy cleaner. You should also dust with cornstarch (not talc), or the UR3 powder. This helps maintain the shape and quality. You can only use water-based lubricants with the sleeve of this toy. Contact with silicone-based lubricants, oil or petroleum-based products will cause damages to the surface of the sleeve. Also, if this toy comes in contact with any other toys made from silicone, or other materials, the UR3 material may react with them. You should store this toy in a cool, dry, dark place and away from other toys. I recommend storing it in a plastic baggie or plastic storage bin because this toy is a major lint magnet. I also recommend storing it in the clamshell package that it came in, which is what I use and it works great.
    • High maintenance


Vivid's "Sunrise UR3 sleeve vibrator" comes in a clamshell package. The insert in the package is mostly black and white with light tints of color. At the top, above the vibe, it says "Vivid UR3 soft sleeve vibrators" in fuchsia. Underneath the UR3, in very small print it says, "Ultra Realistic 3.0 The Ultimate skin". Next to the vibe, it has a blonde girl smiling and printed over her chest in downward text it says "Sunrise". Under that, there is a star and the word "Vivid". It also says non-phthalate, Doc Johnson, and built in america. On the back it says "UR3 soft touch sleeve, multi-speed vibrations, non-phthalate, body safe material, antibacterial sil-a-gel formula, and proudly made in america." There is also a warning to not submerge product in water and do not attempt to warm product in microwave or conventional oven. That part actually made me giggle as I've never seen that printed on a toy before.
    • Discreet looking packaging
    • Good for storage


When I opened this toy, I expected a lot more than what I got from it. The last UR3 Product I bought was nothing short of amazing, but this toy was a huge disappointment. It smells awful and when you touch it or use it, that is all you smell. And the smell does not fade with washing. That's a major turn-off for me. When I used it, the vibes were great, especially for clitoral stimulation. But when inserted it was barely noticeable and the material didn't make it feel more realistic at all. The ribs at the head are so small that you don't feel those either. Another thing that was very annoying about this toy, is the sleeve does not stay in place. While using it, I had to adjust the sleeve and put it back several times. It kept slipping off and buckling up on me. This toy may be a good toy for some. Unfortunately for me, it was a huge disappointment.
Follow-up commentary
It's still not worth it. The sleeve starts to wear out pretty fast. Mine has spots where it has started to split apart on the sleeve. I threw my sleeve away and just use it as a traditional vibe.
