Calexotics Mini Marvels Silicone Marvelous Flicker Tongue Vibrator Review

This is my third Calexotics product. They are all very similar, and I was drawn to the Mini Marvels Silicone Marvelous Flicker Tongue Vibrator because of the promise of a flickering tongue sensation. I’ve got to say that’s a pretty strong promise, as I’ve yet to meet a live human tongue that could vibrate. Am I being cynical? Maybe.

What I want to put to you is that the Mini Marvels Silicone Marvelous Flicker Tongue Vibrator is a perfectly good toy. The problem is, it can’t do what it’s creepy tongue-like shape promises, and Calexotics have created a superior product, in my opinion. The Calexotice silhouette  is like the Mini Marvels Silicone Marvelous Flicker Tongue Vibrator in that it is a small-ish silicone, waterproof and rechargable clitoral vibrator, which has a flickering tip. The Calexotics silhouette is superior to the Mini Marvels Silicone Marvelous Flicker Tongue Vibrator because it’s tip is more precise, and it has additional ridges on one side that feel wonderful (and it doesn’t look like a creepy bright pink disembodied tongue, but some people may like the tongue look).

Basically, what I’m trying to tell you, is I probably would have been a whole lot more positive about the Mini Marvels Silicone Marvelous Flicker Tongue Vibrator if I didn’t think it’s just a not as good version of another Calexotic product. I’ve been ruined for this toy, and I had such high hope for it.

Packaging

All the mini marvels from Calexotics have the same brightly coloured fun packaging, with pop-up art style women drawn on the front. The boxes are hard and sturdy and could be used for long term storage. However, it’s a lot of packaging for quite a small toy and one USB charger, and if you don’t have a ton of space a little storage pouch would be a better option. Also, if you want to keep the box for storage you’d have to hang on to the plastic that covers the toy due to the great big hole in the front of the box, which isn’t very practical. I think this is definitely a case of style over practicality.

Charging

The Mini Marvels Silicone Marvelous Flicker Tongue Vibrator is USB rechargable. It has a pin charger with quite a long pin that you need to push right in to the little hole at the base of the toy. You need to push fairly hard, so don’t be nervous about breaking it when you do this. Plug the USB end into any USB port, I used a wall plug. The two buttons on the lower part will light up and flash as the Mini Marvels Silicone Marvelous Flicker Tongue Vibrator is charging, and will stay solidly on once it is fully charged. It only took about an hour to charge mine fully on the first charge.

Features and Settings

The Mini Marvels Silicone Marvelous Flicker Tongue Vibrator is made from bright pink silicone. Garish doesn’t begin to cut it, but if you’re in to really bright toys you will enjoy this one. The silicone feels quite nice to the touch though, if giving a little bit of friction. There is a faint seam along the length of toy. The handle of the Mini Marvels Silicone Marvelous Flicker Tongue Vibrator is sphere-shaped with two raised buttons that are the controls. Protruding from this sphere is a long, thin tongue-like structure that slims down to a rounded and slightly turned up tip.

The top lump of a button turns the Mini Marvels Silicone Marvelous Flicker Tongue Vibrator on if you hold it down for four or so seconds. The buttons light up and the toy buzzes into life at the lowest constant vibration setting. This top button will also turn the Mini Marvels Silicone Marvelous Flicker Tongue Vibrator off if you hold it down for four seconds again. It’s a simple on/off switch. You need to press down fairly hard and be able to hold it, if you have any problems with grip this may be tricky for you.

The lower lump of a button is the settings control; clicking it lets you scroll through the ten functions. The first three functions are constant speeds, each faster than the last. The remaining eight are various patterns, including both pulses and smooth escalations. The lights behind the buttons reflect what the function is doing, e.g. flashing on and off in time to the pulse, or getting gradually brighter in time with the escalation. This is a fun, if slightly pointless, feature (you can easily feel each mode on the hand you are holding it with, I guess maybe if you have a partner who is watching you and wants to know which setting the vibrator is on it could be useful?).

Using the Mini Marvels Silicone Marvelous Flicker Tongue Vibrator

In use, I found the Mini Marvels Silicone Marvelous Flicker Tongue Vibrator just okay. It didn’t fill me with wild desire, or leave me feeling like I’d experienced something new and exciting. The Mini Marvels Silicone Marvelous Flicker Tongue Vibrator did vibrate against my clit in a way that felt nice, with the aid of plenty of water-based lube. But overall I found it, kind of dull?

I did orgasm, but I felt like I had to work quite hard to get there. It certainly felt absolutely nothing like oral sex, or a tongue, despite it’s shape, and I can’t say I felt the flicking sensation much at all. To me it just felt like another clitoral vibrator, and not a very precise one at that (I love precision). Like I said at the beginning, I think I have been spoilt by such good clitoral toys, and the Mini Marvels Silicone Marvelous Flicker Tongue Vibrator is by no means a bad toy. It’s just not as exciting as I thought it would be.

I used it several times, giving it plenty of chances to change my mind and shine. Each time I tried something different, and I found out that if I lay the length of it over my vulva it makes for quite a nice broad stimulation toy. However, I like to apply a bit of pressure when I am using broad stimulation and sort of massage my clit, and the Mini Marvels Silicone Marvelous Flicker Tongue Vibrator is just too flexible for this. I also tried inserting it into my vagina once, which was alright, but not exactly orgasmic; more of a funny tease.

Conclusion

I’m not really sure what to conclude here. The Mini Marvels Silicone Marvelous Flicker Tongue Vibrator does have a lot of good features; it’s silicone, waterproof and USB rechargeable. It’s quite quiet and it’s vibrations are fairly rumbly. I can see the end of the tongue shape flicking up and down very very fast, which might feel great to someone. To me though, it’s just a garish pink tongue-shaped clit vibrator that doesn’t give me enough precision, or pressure or texture in order to have a really good clitoral orgasm.
