The Rabbit What…?!
The Rabbit Company is a sex toy manufacturer that only makes rabbit vibrators — by which they mean vibrators that have ears. They have a number of dual-stimulators (imagine a classic rabbit vibrator) but they also make a number of handheld external vibes that have two ears.
I am going to address the elephant in the room: almost all of their products resemble other companies’ toys, and we don’t see a whole lot of actual innovation and much of product development. Most of their products have the shafts of Lelo Ina, Mona or Lelo Loki, meshed with an external arm of a Vibratex rabbit: with actual ears and all. Others simply don’t make any sense (a wand vibe that’s also a rabbit vibe). Their pocket vibrators remind us of Love Crave Duet. And even though they carry their products in other colors, all you will see on their website is bright pink. Despite the somewhat tacky marketing, website and product design (back to the 90s??), they went for Lelo prices and even placed themselves at higher price-points than We-Vibe or Je Joue. Lelo hasn’t been a great company lately (a lot of people just don’t want to buy Lelo anymore), so in a way I can’t be entirely upset with The Rabbit Company for replicating their truly genius Mona shaft. And to be fair, they have several models that are not entirely inspired by other companies, such as their G-spot rabbit, the Lay-on Rabbit and the Rabbit Ears.
Out of the above I was truly curious about the Rabbit Ears. Emmeline Peaches reviewed quite positively the Lay-on Rabbit, so I went for the more flexible Rabbit Ears. The Rabbit Company only makes body-safe sex toys that are rechargeable and come with a 5-year warranty, which is not a bad place to start in an industry that’s been poisoning their clients with toxic materials and offensive marketing.
The Rabbit Company products are well made and are mostly visually appealing (not the dazzling, sparkly editions covered in crystals, God no). They come in a stylish packaging that only has an image of the bunny on white background and a list of the key features of the product.
What is the Rabbit Ears?
The Rabbit Ears is a small, handheld external vibrator. It’s made for external stimulation on the clitoris and other erogenous zones. It’s longer than traditional bullet vibes and the motor is located in the shaft of the toy, so either the shaft can be used directly or the little ears at the end can be placed on the clit. I like the idea of unbundling the rabbit ears from the rabbit vibe, because a lot of folks actually really like the little soft ears but prefer using a dildo separately. Rabbits rarely work for most people.
The toy is made of matte silicone (it only comes in pink or purple). It’s easy to use and the shaft is long enough to hold it in place, but at the same time the total size of the product makes it a good travel vibe. It fits in a small purse and it’s very light. A downside is that it doesn’t come with a storage bag (which is something that I’d expect for this kind of price). It’s rechargeable and waterproof (but should not be submerged for more than 15 min).
How does it behave?
What I like about the motor and the programs is that it has 10 different speeds. And no patterns! YAY! And it has “+” and “-” controls, so you can go back and forth in speeds. There is nothing more annoying than toys that only have, say, 3 speeds and a bunch of patterns; or single control toys. The motor is powerful though a little loud (it’s on the buzzier side).
The reason I cannot fully recommend this toy is that we live in a world where We-Vibe Tango costs $79. And Tango is without a doubt much more rumbly and deep, it’s fully waterproof and might work for more people. But if soft bunny ears do the trick for you (say, more so than bullet vibrators), the Rabbit Ears could be the way to go for you. Now Shevibe carries The Rabbit Company and the Rabbit Ears sell for $89.99.
