The Eden velvet play waterproof vibrating egg is made of a PU coated plastic and I did not notice any smell when I received it. The material is soft to the touch, but the toy itself is hard and doesn't have any give to it. It may make one a little sore if you're using it for any grinding. The wider end of the egg makes it large enough to really provide a large area of stimulation and make sure you get off.
The size of the toy is 3 1/2" inches long so it's great for travel or discreet play. The wide tip provides a large area of stimulation. The weight is just 2.2 ounces which means it's perfect for on the go and won't weigh you down if you need to take it with you. The cord is long enough that you can play comfortable with the egg on your clit & the controller in your hand and not too long that you're getting tangled up in it. This really would be a perfect size for a travel toy.
Although this egg vibrator has 12 settings, I would definitely recommend this to a beginner as the vibrations may not be strong enough for someone looking for a strong or deep vibration. All of the settings are on the buzzier side. This vibe is one of the quietest I have used, which really does make this a really great discreet or travel vibrator. The controller is very easy to use and I like that there is an off button specifically, so you don't have to go through each vibration pattern to turn it off. The vibe takes two AA batteries and I would not say it's a battery guzzler. I use this one often and notice that I change it less than my other toys.
This toy's small size makes it very easy to store. Since it's made of hard plastic, it's on the safer side of the porosity scale and you can clean it with soap and water or toy cleaner. Since it's waterproof, you also don't have to worry to much about keeping any area from getting wet while cleaning it.
