I got a little Doc Johnson Candy Bullet from FunWares for review. This is a small bullet. It measures 2.2″ with a diameter of 0.7″. The Candy Bullet has pearl shiny color to it. It comes in white pearl, purple pearl or pink pearl. I have the pink one and I love the color.
Notice that it comes with the 3 watch batteries that power this toy, nice touch. The Candy Bullet has 7 functions and one button near the base. The bullet unscrews to reveal the battery compartment. It is also a water-proof toy. This bullet is made of ABS plastic, so it is easy to clean and maintain. I like the color, size , materials, and the fact that it is waterproof. My liking of this product stops there.
This bullet is a great example of why some people loathe the big manufacturers. I had a bit of a problem getting it to work. This bullet has 7 functions, or at least it did when I got it to work. First of all, I had a hard time getting it to work. I took the batteries out and put them back in like 4 times before it finally made the proper connection. The after about 10 mins of play I “lost” four functions. Yea, like they don’t exist anymore! Right now I only have the first three steady vibes, low, med, and high. It is a nice buzzy sensation, but wtf? Why did it just stop working like that?
Then, as if that wasn’t enough, the toy is loud. Really way too loud for such a small device. It does have a plastic tube in the battery compartment that I thought might be the problem. It says “Do Not Remove”, but I took it out to see if it would help. It didn’t. The bullet is obnoxiously loud either way. I never would have thought that looking at the package. Here is a close up look at the back…
Oh yea, I almost forgot about the “warranty” that the manufacturer has on this. Straight from the Doc Johnson Website:
To obtain Warranty Service of your product, ship your defective product in its entirety with original packaging along with a note describing the defect to the below address, together with a proof of purchase receipt within the last 30 days and Warranty Fees of $15.00 (check or money order) payable to Doc Johnson Warranty Dept (all shipping arrangements must be made by you and all shipping charges and (or) insurance must be fully prepaid). Print and fill out the Age Verification Form (PDF FORMAT) and attach with your Warranty Claim. You must be 18 years or older to submit your Warranty Claim.
I love it when a manufacturer stands behind their product. I hate to see things like this, where a company would try to make even more money from a consumer that was just inconvenienced by shitty quality control. So, no I would not recommend this product at all.
♦♦ Let me point out that FunWares does carry some awesome bullets, and a very large selection of other adult products at very competitive prices. I would recommend the Crystal High Intensity Bullet by California Exotics or Le Reve 3-Speed Bullet by Pipedream Toys. FunWares can only go on what the manufacturer tells them about a product until they have it independently reviewed.
I was supplied this toy free of charge from FunWares in exchange for an un-biased review. This review is in compliance with the FTC guidelines.
