The Zany is a great vibrator for anyone new to sex toys for women. It’s not intimidating in anyway and is nice and simple to use.

What’s in the box?

The packaging was really smart and well designed. As always when I order from Lovehoney, it arrived quickly and in completely discreet wrapping. Inside the box was the Zany mini vibe itself, and a set of instruction.

What does it look like?

This Zany is a fairly odd looking thing to be quite honest! It’s half white and blue with two “ears” or sticky out bits for extra surface area against your skin.

What does it feel like?

It’s made of body-safe silicone so feels nice and soft and is pleasant to touch. Like all silicone toys, you are advised to use water-based lubes with it as opposed to silicone-based ones which can degrade the silicone over a period of time.

The rabbit ears are bendy but also firm. They move with you as needed.

How big is it?

This mini vibrator is small at 3.7 inches in length. It’s not designed for insertion and is mainly for use on your clit.

How is it powered?

Just one AAA battery is needed to power this vibrator. The battery inserts into the base and the base twists on and off.

I always prefer mains powered vibrators over battery powered ones, but for the price of this I think it’s worth having it battery powered.

Plus if this is one of your first vibrators, you may not want to opt for an expensive mains powered vibrator.

Despite running off one single battery, the Zany is extremely powerful and you can see this for yourself in the video review on Lovehoney (link below).

How loud is it?

No vibrator is absolutely silent, regardless of what adverts say and this is no different. It’s definitely on the quieter side of vibrators though which is what you want, especially if you are new to sex toys.

How many settings does it have?

The Zany has one single control so stays on the same speed all of the time with no variation.

How do you use it?

To switch on and off you simply twist the main body of the Zany vibrator to on or to off. It’s fairly self explanatory and you’re unlikely to need to look at the instructions to work it out.

Does it really work?

The Zany gives great clitoral orgasms because of it’s power and the “ears” or antennae as you might refer to them give precise stimulation where you want it. There are better toys on the market than this, but I was happy with it for it’s low price.

Another good point about this vibrator is it’s waterproof and this is demonstrated in the above video. It still works completely submersed under water.

You can also use the Zany on your nipples if you enjoy some stimulation there, and your partner will enjoy the vibrations against his balls too.

It’s a good little toy to use during sex as it’s small. You can easily use it against your own clit during penetration.

What are the good points?

The obvious good point about this mini vibe is the price. It’s cheap and cheerful and so a great introductory sex toy for women.

It’s silicone coated.

It’s completely waterproof.

It’s small so transportable and can fit discreetly in your  bag.

What are the bad points?

It doesn’t come with batteries! A pet hate of mine! If you’re buying this make sure you also order some batteries at the same time to avoid disappointment when it arrives and you have no batteries.

What do other people say?

Other reviews on the Lovehoney website are really good with an overall rating of four stars, or 8/10.

The only real negatives were one reviewer said they didn’t find the Zany powerful enough for them, and someone said they found the ears too hard.
