Retractable heart massager - bullet vibrator by Cal Exotics - review by nori

This tiny heart packs a punch!

This little heart vibe packs a punch. Its extra long cord allows for a better, hands-free experience, and the little size means it can fit almost anywhere! It's excellent for all-over teasing, and for direct playing as well. The only real downside is its ability to eat up batteries (and it's difficult to find batteries at that!).
Retractable cord, ability to pulse, very small, powerful for its size, long cord
Tough on batteries, very small, may be loud in some situations

extremely useful review


I think the best use for the vibrator would be externally. It's small enough that you can really pinpoint stimulation to your breasts, your neck, ears, wrists - all over your entire body. I've found that I love the sensation of the buzzy vibrations against my nipples and along my lips. For some reason, it sends a nice tingle all the way down my spine! I've also used this to trace circles down my lover's hipbones, along the curves of their behind, and along their opening. Each of these were met with breathy begs for more!

Although most would recommend this toy for its ability to tease and pleasure your clit, I've found I like the toy best when it's nestled underneath a dildo. My go-to dildo has a suction cup base, so when placing this powerful little vibe underneath, good LORD you can feel the vibrations all the way up. This is a wonderful alternative for those of us who have difficulty finding vibrators to suit our needs. Let me stress how wonderful this feels. Since the bullet is so small, it makes such a little difference on the added length, but they're powerful enough to feel it to the tips of your toes!

I wouldn't recommend using this toy as an insertable for anal, for the sole fact that I don't really trust wires. It's never really a good idea to pull a toy by the wire powering it, lest you break it at the most inopportune times. (Trust me, it's happened before. Never again.)

I would not advise this vibe for travel, just because the button can be so easily pressed. And as you should know from Fight Club, modern bombs don't tick, they buzz. So if you do want to take this for travel, remove the 3 watch batteries from the back compartment.

Material / Texture

The Retractable Heart massager is made from, as Eden puts it, 'plastic.' The packaging doesn't give us much more information than that, unfortunately. Eden's scare rates the material at an 8/10. So it's not the MOST body safe out there, but not bad, overall. But having used this toy for quite a few months now, I can say with certainty that it has never given off a plastic-y scent, even when it was first opened and rinsed. The color hasn't chipped or faded, and the retractable-ness of the wire hasn't faltered at all. The plastic itself is very smooth to the touch, while the control button has a slightly velvety feel. Overall, it feel nice in your hand.

Design / Shape / Size

In terms of sensitive contact, I found this bullet to me a little too small for clitoral stimulation. The bullet itself measures in at about an inch by a half inch, and is made of a smooth, silver plastic - so this little sucker is TINY! The handheld base, however, is pleasant in shape and fits perfectly into my hand at about 2 1/2 inches. The wire itself unravels to about 25 inches. The max is 30. It's enough distance so that I can move my hand/control wherever I'd like, and still not move the bullet! It works very much like a hardware tape measure. Pull once and let it click to lock the cord, pull again to let it retract. Very neat, very easy!

I do love the shape. It was the whimsical shape that led me to wanting this adorable little gem. I would absolutely point this vibe in the direction of a beginner.

Functions / Performance / Controls

One of the coolest things about this tiny vibe is its ability to work without switching all the way on. Technically, it only has two settings: ON and OFF. In that hazy in-between area, though, where it's not completely on or completely off, you have the ability to pulse this tiny toy. Therein lies one of my favorite features of this toy.

The vibrations themself are a little buzzy - a tiny bit high for my standards. I tend to enjoy low rumbly vibrations, but the way in which I enjoy this toy, it works perfectly for me.

The batteries are what killed my endorphin high, unfortunately. The three watch batteries do not last long at all, and they're not the easiest batteries to find in your local drugstore. I've had a few vibes that used watch batteries that I've tried once then threw out. So I had a few rounds with this toy before I had to buy new batteries. I believe it's worth it, though. I think one set of batteries lasting me... 2-3 sessions? (About an hour, hour and a half each with sporatic use?) Not too bad, but definitely not great.

Care and Maintenance

Unfortunately, it says nowhere on the package that this toy is waterproof. So while I avoid running it under direct water, I tend to use a little bit of warm water, soap, and a washcloth to clean her off. The only thing you need to worry about getting wet is the handheld unit. But with a foot-and-a-half long retractable cord (estimated length!), it's not too difficult to keep the base away from water.

I personally use water-based lube with this toy, when a situation calls for it. Silicone-based should also be safe. Just be careful if you are using this in conjunction with other toys. Test a small area first to double check! Oil-based lube will disintegrate condoms, so keep that in mind as well.

This toy is super tempting to share, but since there are limited ways of completely steralizing it, I would get a second one for use on your partner. They're not very expensive toys, and they last a decent amount of time for their price. Safe sex is the very best kind of sex.

Personal comments

I can proudly say that this is the only non-AA toy I've kept past the first few battery replacements. I've found that this vibe is lovely, despite being powered by only three watch batteries.

This vibe is also a little bit of a loud mouth. I can hear it a bit louder than most of the other bullet vibes I own, but the sound can easily be muffled by a few pillows or blankets. Haven't tried the through-the-door test yet, but I would just be careful and enjoy this toy alone if your housing/rooming/dorming situation doesn't know.
Follow-up commentary
I was initially confused as to which of these heart diagrams I would choose for my follow up review. I view this more as a disposable toy, than anything. When the batteries ran out on this, (and I ran out of watch batteries to replace it with) I threw this toy out. It wasn't worth the trip out to go get more batteries.

I am, however, considering buying myself another one of these. So I don't like it enough to buy more batteries, but I like it enough to think about buying a new one. Go figure!
