Bubbles is a cute, albeit short, G-spot vibrator available in fitting bubblegum pink. It gets its name from its appearance – a serious of bulbs on the shaft which look like bubbles. Typical of most Fun Factory vibrators, the silicone of Bubbles is soft and pliable; although, the core of the toy is not, so the shaft is not uber flexible. Toward the end, the bubbles are pure, soft silicone so the head can be flexed a bit this way and that. Although Bubbles might look almost fluffy in photos, it is not that soft.

Unlike many G-spot toys, Bubbles is wider and more filling. While I do not particularly enjoy super thin toys, I found the specific shape, size and perhaps even material of this vibrator to be difficult to maneuver and insert, even with an abundant amount of water based lube and arousal. Bubbles will probably be a better fit for someone whose G-spot is not as shallow as mine; I usually prefer a less angled head than that on this vibrator and the fit was just not comfortable where I needed to vibrator to sit. In addition to this, Bubbles may be too short to reach some G-spots because there are only insertable 4.5 inches.

Because of the separate bulges, Bubbles has a variety of widths. It seems to be wider right where it curves (the second to last “bubble”) and it has a diameter of 1.6″. The lower bubbles are around the same girth while the bubble on the end is slightly smaller with a 1.5″ diameter. Obviously, it is less girthy in between the bubbles but this actually seems to make it harder for me to maneuver. Having such a wide bulge at the curve point also hinders movement.

Although the shape was not ideal, I found the vibrations to be satisfactory. They are not incredibly deep and do not quite compare with the Sinfflut Intensity (also from Fun Factory), but are fairly strong, especially for a toy of its size. There are multiple settings of vibration which are controlled by two buttons: one which powers on the toy/increases vibration and one which decreases vibration/turns off the toy. The symbols are embossed into the silicone itself and you have to press through it to control the toy. I found this to be a little difficult as the softer silicone requires an exact touch and my fingernails frequently get in the way. I would much prefer hard plastic buttons at the base.

There are about 6 modes of steady vibration. Toward the higher settings, they do tend to blend together. There are also 3 pulsating modes which are essentially slow pulse, medium pulse and fast pulse. I do not think my Bubbles originally pulsated correctly at first but it does now.

In use, Bubbles is not whisper quiet but would probably not be heard through a closed door even on the higher settings.

Bubbles is also unique in that it is part of Fun Factory’s line of new click and charge vibrators. These rechargeable vibrators run on an internal battery and connect to a magnetic charger at their base (which is small, rounded and plastic so it may become slippery during use) which then plugs into the wall. The toy and charger have Fun Factory logos which need to be lined up. When charging, a red light on the charger indicates status but my charger actually seems to have a broken light (but it still works). The toy does come charged which is a plus.

Babeland sent me a magnetic charger with Bubbles so I assume it and similar click and charge toys will come with it. Both the toy and the charger have the same instruction manual which is quite big as, per usual, it contains several languages. This information states that the toy can be used approximately 1 hour on the highest setting. I did use it 2 – 3 times before charging it and it definitely did not lose any strength. Although it says these toys should be charged before first use (and that charge can take up to 6 hours), I did not charge mine. The toy cannot be used while charging; it will switch off. The set up does not allow a toy to be ruined by overcharging, which is always nice. There is a warning that Bubbles should never be stored dead; it should always be charged.

Because there are no ports or holes or anything of the sort, Bubbles is completely waterproof and can be played with in the shower or bath. This also makes cleaning a cinch because the soft silicone will attract lint that is hard to remove with cleaning wipes or sprays. I find running water does the trick much better.

While my anatomy did not love Bubbles, it is a quality toy and the click and charge system is pretty awesome. I definitely want to check out other BiMini vibes from Fun Factory.
