Babeland was awesome enough to send me a Toyfriend of my very own! These toys seem very abstract, but something that I have always admired about this line of toys is that they seem to have something for everyone. They have wide toys and thin toys, clitoral toys and g-spot toys, they have things that are shaped in ways that I don't quite understand... And they all look awesome.
I chose the magenta colored Toyfriend, also known as 'Bubbly.' Bubbly's blurb introduces it as either being a 'strand of pearls or a ray gun.' If you knew how much I was into science fiction and the 1950's I bet you could guess which I feel it looks like.
The entire vibrator is sizable and is almost 9 inches ling, but the 'ray gun' bit is only 1.5 inches long. You can use this externally, by inserting just the ray gun bit, or by inserting the ray gun bit and a bit of the shaft.
I personally like to either only insert the ray gun bit or use this externally on my clitoris. As far as g-spot vibrators go, this isn't the best out there. The 'pearls' are fairly flexible, and the neck where the toy bends is super flexible. This means that if you like a lot of g-spot pressure you won't get much out of it. I personally like softer toys, so this works well for me.
This toy is also made of silicone, one of the safest materials around. You can wash it with an antibacterial cleaner or soap and water, but one of the perms is that if you want to switch orifices or users you can wipe it down with a 10% bleach solution.
There are 5 settings to this toy, making is a nice way for new users to try out patterns. They are as follows;
3- bbbbzzzZZZZ bbbzzzzZZZ
4- bbzzZZ bbzzZZ
5- bbZZ bbZZ
To turn it off you simply hold down the button for 2 seconds. This is nice in case you have to turn it off and don't have time to cycle through the patterns. When you turn it back on it starts back on the first setting.
On high it is a good 3 out of 5 in power and maybe a 1.5 out of 5 in volume. It's also completely waterproof, making this wonderful for bath or shower play. It's a perfect toy for those living in the dorms or with thin walls.
It comes in a cute box that, while not discreet, would be fine to wrap and give as a gift. It's got a see-through front and it does say "I vibrate!" but it has no lewd descriptions or naked women on the front. It also comes with a cute stand if you want to display your new toy.
Overall, this cute, stylish Toyfriend is a great vibrator, but because of the small tip and soft material it may be best for beginners or those who don't need a lot of pressure or intensity. If you don't think that this Toyfriend is for you don't fear; Babeland carries the whole line and they're bound to have something for everyone!
