Disappointing change to favorite toy ever :(
on March 15, 2014
The original toy was mind-blowing. (See my original review below). That one lasted me a year (of near-daily use) before I had to replace it. The second replacement was the same.
The third replacement, however, stopped working after only a few uses. I contacted Amazon and asked for a refund, which they gave me. I purchased another one.
I've had it barely two months (used it maybe five times, total) and again the motor has completely died. I don't know what's happening, because the originals were powerhouses, but the newer ones have crapped out on me with hardly any use. It's INCREDIBLY disappointing, because this is my absolute favorite toy of all time, but I can't keep shelling out $40 for crappy items that barely last a month.
I can't express how much I love this toy. Something about the side-to-side (POWERFUL) vibrations makes this unparalleled in my history of toys. I haven't found another one yet that is equally as strong, which I like. Yes, the two speeds are high and higher, but WOW will they take you higher! On occasion, I've gotten there in 30 seconds.
Warning though- if you like strong vibrations, this toy will ruin you for any other. I'm addicted.
Cons: burns through batteries like you cannot believe, is fairly noisy.
With being used pretty much daily, my first one lasted me a year and a half before it burned out. I bought this one about a year ago and it's starting to get a little glitchy now, so I'll need a new one soon. But it's SO worth it.
