The Bubbles vibrator is part of the new mini-line, which features Click and Charge technology. This vibrator comes packaged in the standard grey and red Fun Factory box, visible through the front. Product information is on the back, and an instruction pamphlet is included. This looked so cute in the window, I couldn’t wait to get it in my hands!
This vibrator is adorable (does that sound strange to call a vibrator?) with four pink bubbles squished together atop a black plastic base (it also comes in blue). It looks a bit like a caterpillar, although without the Fun Factory face. It’s super soft and squishy and fun to play with. It’s made of 100% silicone, so it’s body safe, phthalates-free, latex free, and hypoallergenic. The texture has a bit of a drag to it, and it’s fun just to hold and squeeze the toy.
This vibrator is small. It’s just 5 1/2” long, with 4” of insertable length. The bubbles are 1 1/2″ wide at their widest point and flexible. The bubbles form a gentle curve, which is great for g-spot stimulation (but this vibrator should NOT be used anally). These bubbles sit atop the black base, which says “Fun” on the bottom. This is where the charger is connected.
The charger, which comes in a separate box, is a simple magnetic charger, with 2 points of contact for the vibrator. This charger is compatible with all the new Click and Charge Fun Factory toys. The rechargeable battery is a lithium polymer, and can be recharged at any time, so you don’t have to wait for the Bubbles vibrator to be completely discharged before powering it up again.
The Bubbles vibrator must be charged for 6 hours before first use (later charges should be considerably less). The 2 “Fun” logos must be placed completely on top of each other. When it’s a steady red, the Bubbles is ready for use. The charger snaps right on, but it’s a bit easy to dislodge, so you’ll want to make sure you’re charging this in a location where nothing will bump the charger or toy. You’ll know it’s charging since the logo pulses red while it’s gathering power. The charger can’t be connected during use – the vibrator will switch off if it’s connected.
The Bubbles vibrator is easy to operate. Two touch buttons are located on the front bottom of the silicone, and all you can see is the + and – sign where they are. To turn the vibrator on, press and hold the + button for 2 seconds. It will start on it’s lowest vibration, which is incredibly low and steady. Pressing + repeatedly about 3 more times will boost the Bubble’s power to it’s maximum vibration speed, which is quite strong and rumbly, although very quiet.
The vibration patterns can be accessed when the Bubbles is on high by pressing the + button again. The patterns that it cycles through are: long pulses, medium pulses, and fast pulses. The patterns keep cycling with a press of the + button: pressing – takes the vibrations back to steady on the highest setting.
The Bubbles vibrator doesn’t have a dedicated off button. To turn off, simply press and hold the – button until the vibrator stops. At full power, the Bubbles will operate for 1 hour before it needs to be recharged.
This vibrator is easy to clean. It should be cleaned both before and after each use with a mild soap and water and patted dry. It can be stored in its box. Only water-based lubricants are safe to use.
If you travel with the Bubbles, temperature changes can cause condensation on the vibrator, and you should wait a few hours before charging or using. The vibrator shouldn’t come into contact with metal surfaces, which can cause a short circuit. You should also keep credit cards or cards with magnetic strips away from this toy and its charger.
This vibrator is completely waterproof, so it can be used in the tub or shower as well as the bed.
So, Does It Work? I really enjoyed this vibrator. While the low speed did nothing for me – I could barely feel it – the high speed was wonderfully strong. The pulse patterns were nice to alternate with the high speed. It worked well both on my clit as well as internally. I could hit my g-spot with this vibrator, but it was a bit tricky to manipulate and thrust due to its short length. I did find that I had to use a lot of lubricant with this one, but once I did it was slick and comfortable. This was fun to use in the bath as well, although I didn’t like it in the shower due to its short length.
I found it did keep its charge about an hour, and it was pretty easy to recharge. It took the Bubbles about 3 hours to charge up when I completely drained the batteries.
Overall, I’d recommend the Bubbles vibrator from Fun Factory. It’s quite a bit of fun!
