When I opened the box there was a very slight smell, but this went away after washing it. It uses a magnetic charger which I thought was interesting, so make sure you have somewhere stable to put it or else it will disconnect. The rotations this toy has in combination with the vibrations feels awesome once it's in the right spot. The only problem I have is keeping it there, as there's not enough room between the last bead and the stopper, it slips out unless I'm holding it there. The only other issue I have is battery life is shorter than I would like, but it still functions well. Overall it's a fairly good product, I would like for it to stay in hands free but that's really my only complaint about it.
