If there’s one word that’s going to command my attention pretty much whenever I hear it, it’s the word magic. Magic is…magical. It fascinates and entertains, nothing can stir my imagination like the idea of magic can. If I hear the word, I wanna know what’s going on. If I see it in print you know I’m gonna check it out. And if I see a sex toy collection with magic in its name there’s no way I’m gonna turn down the opportunity to review it. That’s why I come bearing my opinions of the Lovehoney A Little Bit of Magic Collection.
I don’t have a great deal of experience with bricks and mortar sex shops, but I know for a fact that I’d be all over this kit as soon as I walked in the door. Why? Shiny packaging. I’m a Geordie girl so naturally, I’m half magpie, and shiny stuff is always gonna reel me in for a look. And if I was in a physical shop, my hand would definitely have gone in my purse for this one.

One of my most popular reviews to date is the one I wrote for the MiaMaxx Thrusting Vibrator. That little handheld fucking machine gets so much attention here on Scandarella. If you’ve not read that particular review, here’s a spoiler; I wasn’t impressed. The thing was noisy, I found it awkward to use with my short arms and bulky frame. When the creators of MiaMaxx read that review they offered to send me a couple of products. One intended to make using the toy easier for me, and the other to offer a different sensation while I tried it out.
Before I talk about those, though, I’ll tell you a bit about my MiaMaxx. No, I’m not gonna rehash an old review. See, before I even got a chance to try out my new goodies, my MiaMaxx croaked. There was no life in the old bugger at all. So, being the awesomely generous company that they are, MiaMaxx sent me a new toy! Continue reading “MiaMaxx Thrusting Vibrator, Stand, & Xara Sleeve”
Happy Earth Day, folks! I really should have brought you this review before now, but I couldn’t resist hanging on until Earth Day. Why? Because the Blush Novelties Gaia Eco – named after the primordial Greek ‘Mother Earth’ goddess – is (as far as I know) the world’s first biodegradable vibrator.
It’s made of BioFeel – which according to the packaging is “a starch-based bioplastic, a polymer compound material mixed with corn starch.” I’ve had cups made of this stuff before, and pet bowls and one dinner tray. But the Gaia is the first sex toy I’ve ever seen made from this material. Continue reading “Blush Novelties Gaia Eco Vibrator”
I’m about to share one of the most exciting things that has happened to me in my entire sex toy reviewing career. When Crimson Princess became a sponsor of Scandarella they gave me permission to choose any product I liked from their store for review. Well! They carry so many amazing things it could have been a case of a kid in a candy shop, but luckily for me, I’ve long kept extensive lists of toys that have caught my eye. And this seemed like the perfect opportunity to get my hands on something I’ve wanted for ages. The rather incredible Swan Wand.
When someone says the word ‘wand’ my mind immediately conjures up an image of the Doxy. Or Harry Potter, depending on the conversation. See, when I think of the classic wand shape I think of long handles, usually wired, and narrow necks that make using their large domed heads internally not just impractical but also inadvisable. But more and more often I’m seeing what I would class as a vibrator badged up as a wand. That seems to be the case with the Swan Wand…if you’re a fan of uber girthy vibrators, that is.

I’ve been such a lucky duck, recently. Some gorgeous sex toys have passed through the doors of the Scandarella household, one of the most recent being the i-Scream ice cream cone vibrator. I love everything about that darling little thing, and now I’m getting to talk about another product from the mind of the same person who designed it. Let me introduce you to the Red Minx Vibrator by Shiri Zinn.
From the moment I ripped the tape off the outer box and saw what was lying in wait among the packing paper, I was smitten. The packaging for this thing is next level stuff. You folks know I’m a self-confessed packaging whore, and the box the Red Minx comes in delights me. Some toys come with pretty paperboard cartons, some with plastic cases. But the Red Minx? This baby comes in a satin lined, faux snake print covered, hand-crafted box. Scarlet and blood red, sturdy, and with a silver clasp to keep it closed. Gorgeous!

I’m sure you can all remember the recent guest review the lovely Just Jess Reviews did of the MysteryVibe Crescendo, right here at Scandarella. She wasn’t impressed at all, not unlike many other reviewers out there. Right after that review went live, MysteryVibe told me that they’d been listening to the feedback they were receiving, and they offered Jess a chance to review the new improved Crescendo. Well, this is her mini review! Did MysteryVibe really make improvements, or did they just do a few ineffectual tweaks? Check out what Jess has to say to find out!
I was super excited when MysteryVibe reached out after reading my guest review on Scandarella. My wish had come true, they had listened to bloggers’ and reviewers’ feedback and created the Crescendo 2.0 – New motors! Continue reading “MysteryVibe Crescendo Follow Up Mini Review”
Okay. You might know that I kinda loved the So Divine Wicked Game Magic Wand, but did you know I got more than just that in my review package? After reviewing the Je T’Aime Mini Vibrator, I went back to using the wand, but it’s time to be professional. Other products need my attention, and today it’s the turn of the So Divine Ooh La La Flower Vibrator.
Cute! That’s the best word to describe this vibe. Adorable works too, and so does pretty. I know I usually whine about how tired I am of pink sex toys, and that opinion still stands, but given the flowery nature of this vibe it couldn’t have been any other colour.

I love getting to try new products. It’s always fun, nearly always orgasmic, and only very rarely dull. It’s especially exciting if the products are from a brand I like, and OVO just happens to be one such brand. They recently sent me a box of goodies, and the one I’ve chosen to review first is the OVO E4 Dual Sensation Vibrator.
Firstly, shout out to OVO’s fancy new packaging! Personally, I liked their previous boxes, but they did have the slight problem of being sturdy enough for long term storage but not at all discreet. OVO have addressed that, switching their toy printed boxes for a magnetically closing grey box with simple branding. Over that is a throw away sleeve, and this is where you’ll find actual size product pictures and info. When you’re ready to store, sling the sleeve and put keep your box wherever you like.

Toward the latter end of last year, Betty’s Toy Box – a fantastic women led shop in the US whose quality products cater to everyone – gave me the opportunity to review something new; the Jopen Opal Vibrating Glass Dual Massager. It had so many possibilities, and while I did love certain aspects of it, I longed for a simpler version. Something that I could use hard and fast without having to stress out about keeping external arms in contact with my clit.
Well, Jopen delivered, and I now have in my hands – again, thanks to Betty’s Toy Box – the Jopen Opal Vibrating Glass Wand. Continue reading “Jopen Opal Wand”
When I received an email from So Divine asking if I’d like to review a bunch of their products, I genuinely clapped my hands with glee. Why? Because I’d already spotted the So Divine Wicked Game Magic Wand and, oh, how I wanted it!
It was the first thing I got my hands on when the package arrived (and there was a lot of stuff in that parcel so keep an eye out for more So Divine reviews!). I probably don’t need to remind you that I’m a packaging junkie, but I will. Pretty, simple, and tasteful, it’s a delight to open a parcel with a So Divine product in it.
