IMTOY ZOO Giraffe Vibrator Review

Solo Sex Safari With ‘Giraffe’ from the IMTOY ZOO Collection

I’ve recently written about the intriguing IMTOY ZOO Sex Toys Collection, and the IMTOY ZOO Giraffe Vibrator is the toy I received from the 6-part range. Upon receiving the gift package from IMTOY I was hugely excited to read it was a giraffe vibrator… I’ve seen rabbit vibrators and egg vibrators and even swan vibrators, but a giraffe? Wow!

Packaging

The packaging is very pretty as well as functional:

First Impressions

My excitement soon dissipated when I opened the box. I must admit to a huge disappointment upon seeing that the IMTOY ZOO Giraffe Vibrator looks nothing like a giraffe and pretty much exactly like your run-of-the-mill classic vaginal vibe. Oh sure, it’s a pretty pastel colour (if you’re into that sort of thing), and it’s covered with smooth silicone, and there’s a fancy charger and shimmery metallic base. But all in all, it’s a classic vag vibe – not a giraffe. Not even giraffe texture or print.

Sighs aside, it was time to see what the IMTOY ZOO Giraffe Vibrator could offer me rather than focusing on what it definitely didn’t. Looks are novel but they’re not everything, especially in a product designed for internal use.

Charging Up

Before getting started, I need to charge my IMTOY ZOO Giraffe Vibrator up. This is pretty simple; there’s a USB/magnetic charging lead included with the toy and the connection is nice and strong. No flimsy connectors which disconnect with so much as a heavy breath in its direction. There’s an LED which lights up behind the power button of the vibrator as it’s charging.

Once charged, I was interested in seeing what sort of power the IMTOY ZOO Giraffe Vibrator could provide. Although its primary purpose is as a vaginal penetrative toy, I definitely prefer clit stim and I’ve enjoyed many a powerful-enough vag vibrator for clitoral orgasms instead.

It wasn’t to be with the IMTOY ZOO Giraffe Vibrator alone; the top constant speed of vibration couldn’t get me off despite trying on several different occasions. I’m not one for pulses and patterns either – but if you are, then you might enjoy the Giraffe. I’ll explain more about that in a while.

The ZOO App

Something quite different about the admittedly rather ordinary looking IMTOY ZOO Giraffe Vibrator is that there’s an app. Not just a ‘oh now you can access the functions you get on the vibrator but from your mobile instead’ app, but one which offers quite a bit more.

As well as allowing mobile access to the functions the IMTOY ZOO Giraffe Vibrator offers through its power button, there’s also some pretty funky options like getting your toy to vibrate to sound fed into your phone’s microphone, or to a music or video file selected from your phone’s library.

There’s even the option to ‘draw’ your own vibration pattern – quite literally, you draw whichever squiggle pattern on the screen and the vibrator follows the line you’ve drawn!

It was pretty simple to connect the vibrator to the app, you’re instantly directed to the connect button when you’ve downloaded and gone into the app. You need to make sure your Bluetooth is on first, and press the power button on the IMTOY ZOO Giraffe Vibrator for a second until the power LED is flashing.

Power-Up Extras

Two other points of interest on the app is the ‘bomb’ button and the ‘rocket’  button. From what I can make out, the first is to increase the power quite slowly to a peak power point, while the latter is to instantly turbo boost and continue with that max power.

I like the rocket button!

In fact, the rocket button is what I need the IMTOY ZOO Giraffe Vibrator to be set to in order for me to reach orgasm with this vibrator. Even then I need some great quality lube, and a lot of time to relax into the session, and to be using it for clit stim rather than vaginal (which is its intended use). So although I can reach orgasm with this toy, I’d be a bit annoyed if I’d spent money on this vibrator and a) couldn’t get off with it in the intended manner, b) could only orgasm with it during one of those elongated, relaxed, ‘everything has to be just perfect’ sessions and c) only really enjoyed the fancy-schmancy app for one thing only, the rocket button. Oh, and d) discovered it looked nothing like a giraffe and didn’t have a textured or even printed giraffe design.

Summary

Overall, I’m not massively impressed with the IMTOY ZOO Giraffe Vibrator. This is even more sad than usual because sales of the IMTOY ZOO Collection help support South Africa’s Endangered Wildlife Trust. It should be kept in mind that I’m probably not your typical vaginal vibrator lover; I don’t get off on vaginal stimulation alone. I also hugely prefer textured over smooth toys, and for the clit stim I need to get off quickly my clitoris demands some pretty hardcore vibration power.

For smooth penetrative toy lovers who don’t require super-strength vibes, and for someone looking for a luxurious looking and feeling vibrator which also goes some way towards protecting endangered wildlife, the IMTOY ZOO Giraffe Vibrator could be great. Or why not take a look at the rest of the range, there are some intriguing options available in the 6-part range. Just don’t expect them to look like the animals they’re named for!

The IMTOY ZOO Giraffe Vibrator is currently priced at $79.99 which at today’s rates converts to approximately £63.
