L'Amour Tripler

The L’Amour Tripler is a sleek modern-looking rabbit vibrator, with a 13cm insertable shaft, and 3cm width. The rabbit ears extend from the shaft in a near fashion, and the three-button control panel is near the base of the vibrator.

The Tripler is lightweight, easy to handle and has 3 speeds and 7 patterns of vibration. The control panel is illuminated with a luminous light source to make adjustments when it is dark.

Made from ABS with a silicone coated skin.

A great mid-range price rabbit vibrator. Easy to use, feels good, looks good, and functions well.

My First Jack Rabbit

The My First Jack Rabbit has two shafts, a small one that is the rabbit with its ears and the central shaft that is longer and thicker. The beads in the centre of the main shaft rotate in both directions, and it has a proportionately sized penis shaped head at the top which also rotates in both directions.

The controls are easy to use and backlit and glow so that you can still see and use them in the dark. The manufacturer claims this to be a sonic vibrator, which in reality makes it a lot quieter than it is predecessors and is still one of the more silent rabbit vibrators on the market. Function-wise it is powerful through all levels of vibration, pulsing and rotations. Select from varying vibrations and patterns; Six vibration levels with a seventh dedicated to the rabbit ears. A separate control for the rotating head and the 56 beads encased in the shaft that rotate in bot directions. It runs on standard AA batteries. The My First Jack Rabbit is available in the two colours - purple and pink.

On the cheaper end of the price scale, so don’t expect it to last forever, but it’s a robust and well-proportioned rabbit vibrator. Great for the beginner.

iVibe Rabbit

Available in three colours, Strawberry, Blueberry and Grape. It is a well tried and tested waterproof rabbit vibrator that has the usual rabbit combination of a longer, thicker main shaft and a smaller off-shoot rabbit with ears. The beaded section on the main shaft is bigger than some and rotates. The iVibe’s motor has eight-speed settings with three pleasure/patterns. The insertable portion is pliable but firm with its vibrations. The bottom battery casing is a plastic material where the controls sit. Requires AA batteries.

Another great beginner vibrator. A better brand, and better components than cheaper rabbit vibrators.

Lelo Ina Wave

The Ina is available in three vibrant colours – plum, cerise and ocean blue. It has ten unique vibration patterns and wave alternatives that adjust at the press of a button. Made from a silky silicone material and is completely waterproof.

It is rechargeable and four hours of continuous use is possible if fully charged first. Curved and moulded in design with no rabbit ears in this instance. The rabbit part of the toy is a rounded and long curved nub protruding from the middle of the shaft - similar to the main shaft of the toy but smaller. The controls are well positioned and are easy to operate while the toy is being used solo or with a partner.

Quality components, quality manufacturing, and a well-designed toy. This toy has lots of features and is highly recommended for all levels of user.

Adore Luxury by Swan

The Adore is another very different type of rechargeable, water-resistant rabbit vibrator. It is part of the Petite range from Swan and is available in the SWAN signature colour – a vibrant Pink. Has a multi-speed motor with several patterns of vibration.

The whole shaft is a sleeve of seamless silicone – the only exception is where it joins the controls at the bottom. It has a wireless stand to place it in for recharge. The vibrations are varied and include pulse and vibes in multiple combinations with an additional rotating function; You can control these separately and also run them independently. There is a lock and hold function for pre-determined settings. It carries a 12-month limited warranty against defects. Will operate for approximately 9 hours on a full charge.

A quality, well-made toy from BMS, who make a range of top end vibrators. On par with LELO.

The Different Types of Rabbit Vibrator

As seen in Sex and The City, the original rabbit vibrator was invented in the US by California Exotic Novelties in the early 1990's. It made its debut on Sex and The City in 1999 and was a huge hit in the US, Europe and all through Asia, not long after that. The pseudo-standard rabbit vibrator is a light jelly coating over a shaft with a row of beads in the shaft - this was the original design, and the core principle still exists today. The modern twist is that they are now often made from silicone, and with a rotating and vibrating shaft.

The clitoral stimulator, or rabbit, protrudes from the middle of the vibrator shaft. Once the shaft has been inserted into the vagina, the clitoral stimulator sits atop the clitoris. The shaft tip then stimulates the g-spot, and the rabbit stimulates the clitoris. It is easy to tell the difference between the various types of rabbit vibrators once you have a little bit of know-how.

In this section, we walk you through the most common types of what we call rabbit vibrators.

Rabbit vs Dolphin vs Other

Rabbit vs Dolphin vs Other

If we are comparing rabbit, vs. dolphin, vs. other, then the styling is purely cosmetic, and the underlying technology inside the vibrator does not differ. The main difference is the style and mould of the clitoral stimulator - is it in the shape of a rabbit, beaver, dolphin or is it nondescript.

Of course, these differences may drive very different looking designs in the overall appearance of the rabbit vibrator – making them ultimately unique.

Rabbit - The Rabbit has Bunny ears that sit in a ‘V’ shape at the top of the clitoral stimulator on the side of the main shaft of the vibrator. It is by far the most common kind of dual stimulation vibrator and is why we call this category rabbit vibrators. Having said that you can also get other types of animal nose vibrators.

Dolphin - Instead of a rabbit, the dolphin design has a dolphin nose shape at the top of the clitoral stimulator.

Beaver - Similar to the Rabbit and Dolphin, the Beaver design has a beaver snout on the clitoral stimulator instead.

Other - Some have uniquely shaped tops like a tiny cup or are shaped silicone to cup the clitoris upper and lower instead of side to side.

There are also those that have a what we might determine as a mini sculpted nub on the side with no specific animal type shaping - refer Swan range of products for examples.

We also have those that are a curved arm with attention to detail being in the flow of the curving top to bottom – refer Lelo range for examples.

 
Standard kind of rabbit vibrator

Standard Dual-Action Vibrators

The general size of the standard rabbit vibrator’s shaft is approximately 11-13cm long, with a diameter of 4cm. The standard model has two motors – the main one is inside the main shaft, and the second in the thicker part of the clitoral stimulator. The motors can be controlled independently, to make the right vibration setting in the right region. For example you might prefer intense g-spot stimulation, with a light buzz on the clitoris – this can be achieved with most rabbit vibrators.

The standard model most commonly include a section of rotating beads with the head on top and separated operating functions of the shaft and clitoral vibrator. Rabbit ears are also the most common.

 
Mini Rabbit Vibrator

Mini & Small Rabbit Vibrators

Smaller versions of the standard dual-action rabbit vibrator. They come in different designs and colours but are mostly smaller versions of their bigger brothers in the standard size category. In some cases, they may have the one shaft with a clitoral stimulator on the top instead of a separate clitoral stimulator. Some may have a small nobble on the side or a shape like a tongue about 2cm on the side. In this category, they are typically in the region of 8-10cm’s insertable in length, with a width of about 3cm.

The majority of manufacturers produce ranges of small rabbit vibrators. This size of the vibrator is suitable for women with a smaller vagina, or those who are not comfortable with the larger sized rabbit.

The smaller size might mean they have a fix, non-rotating frame, and possibly even a single motor.

 
Thrusting Rabbit Style Vibrator

Thrusters

A thrusting rabbit vibrator refers to the ability of the vibrator to extend or thrust the main shaft outward/inward during the action. The Thruster style of vibrators pumps and push the head up and down and is controlled via an additional mode on the control pad on some rabbit vibrators. This kind of rabbit evolved to have this enhanced pulse and rotation movement over the course of the last few years. The interesting thing is that we’ve seen thrusters also retain many of the other standard rabbit vibrator features – beads, rotating, dual or triple motor, etc.

The thrusting action typically starts below the head of the vibrator and extends outwards making the shaft 3-4cm longer when extended. Using the control pad it is easy to adjust the speed of the thrusting, but it is not normally very fast in movement. We have found that the beads on the shaft can still rotate independently of the thrusting, and all of these together, provide multiple stimulation points. There are not very many rabbit vibrators available on the market with the thrusting action functionality included.

 
Triple rabbit vibrators

Triple Stimulators

A triple stimulator is designed to stimulate the three top female erogenous zones at the same time. Imagine if you will, a standard sized dual-action rabbit vibrator, with an added string of graduated beads on the opposite side to the main shaft to the rabbit ears.

The beaded strand, designed for anal stimulation, vibrates as a flow-on effect as the main shaft vibrates. The triple stimulator is designed to stimulate vaginal, clitoral and anal all at the same time.

 

Other Things to Consider When Buying a Rabbit Vibrator

Sizes & Shapes

Rabbit vibrators are available in a variety of sizes and shapes. It is important to be aware of the size of the toy you want to buy before you do so, rather than buy something that does not suit you. In general, your past experiences will guide you in size and shaping of the toy you want to buy. Whether you enjoy varying types of stimulation like clitoral and anal as well as vaginal will all play a part in your choice. If you are new to choosing a rabbit vibrator, you will not have that luxury.

If you are uncertain, or new to choosing a rabbit vibrator, then we recommend selecting a medium, or standard size vibrator and trying it to see how it feels in size. It’s good to remember that no matter the size, any vibrator can be used as a clitoral stimulator if it is too small or big.

Unfortunately every woman differs in the size of their vagina, or what is comfortable and enjoyable for them, you have to try a few to find the right shape, and size to suit you.

If you have a small vagina, you would not be advised to buy one of the larger toys and similarly if you have a large vagina, you would not buy a slim vibrator. You would look for something that is bigger in diameter and possibly longer as well.

Materials

Of the many different kinds and many different brands that make rabbit vibrators, we find wide discrepancies in the types of materials, used to manufacture them. Five years ago the materials were a lot more primitive, nowadays in 2015/2016, we find most decent manufacturers switching to use silicone compounds as the final skin point contact material.

By last skin point contact, we mean the stuff that touches the skin, the one you feel. How manufacturers achieve a silicone feel, at a lower cost point, is by creating a plastic frame, and then forming a silicone skin that sits on top of the plastic.

This type of manufacturing process has become a lot more popular, because silicone offers superior feel and touch, over any other material. It warms to the touch, feels lush, is hypoallergenic, and luxurious. It feels more expensive, and this is why manufacturers try to limit the amount they use in toys while still producing quality products – hence using a top quality silicone skin instead of a whole toy made from cheaper silicone, or from a cheaper alternative material.

However, there are considerably different qualities of silicone and plastic that manufacturers can use for their products. For example, a cheaper toy may be produced from a lesser grade of silicone than would have been used to create a more expensive toy.

Most modern rabbit vibrator toys in 2015/2016 have this kind of design – a hard plastic frame, with a silicone coating or skin. The plastic frame is important because it contains the working components of the toy, like the motor, batteries, wiring, controller electronics and components, required to make the toy rotate, vibrate and buzz.

In some cases, jelly coated toys, have a part plastic frame, and a plastic coated metal rod through the core of the toy to hold it in shape. The skin coating on jelly-like toys is most commonly a silicone composite called Silagel.

Nearly all modern materials are bacteria resistant, and Phthalate free (materials free from phthalic acid that makes plastics more flexible). This is a critical consideration in buying quality brand products because some cheap (although we do not stock them), brands do still use phthalates. The two key reasons to consider the material of the rabbit vibrator is that, cheap phthalates can harm you, and skin sensitivity/reactions to some compounds is possible.

Another material that is being occasionally used in rabbit vibrators is Pyrex glass. This is evident as the Icicles range of toys are all glass. While only one or two rabbit vibrators have it, the glass is by its nature hygienic, easy to clean and while not flexible the Icicles glass is medical grade – making it shatter and shard resistant. The rigid nature of glass means they are easy to cool and warm, and only require a single vibrator.

In summary, we recommend:-

  • Buy a rabbit vibrator that is nice looking and has a great feeling material
  • Always buy phthalate-free toys (note: we do not sell any toys with phthalates in them).
  • Choose a modern manufactured toy (beware old discount stock sales with stock from 5+ years ago, it may be toxic)
  • If you experience a reaction, always stop, remove the toy, and consult an expert about skin irritation.
 

Motors (Single, Dual or Triple)

Most rabbit vibrators come with a standard two motors - one in the shaft and one in the rabbit ears, clitoral stimulator. Some exceptions to this apply, where smaller rabbit vibrators might only have one motor, and some of the more advanced, and expensive rabbit vibrators might have, three motors.

Generally the more motors, the more power and versatility the rabbit vibrator will have - it will likely be able to more finely and precisely target the most pleasurable stimulation spots in and around the vagina.

In summary, we recommend:-

  • Choose a rabbit vibrator with at least 2 motors if possible, as this will deliver enough stimulating vibration to the clitoris and the g-spot. If you can afford a more expensive rabbit vibrator, then you might get three motors, giving you even more power and control.
If you want more buzz you should select a rabbit vibrator with more motors
 
speed limit

Speeds and Vibration Rhythms

Rabbit vibrators typically have two forms of vibration setting: speed and pattern.

Speed/Power - This is the control of the intensity of the vibration, how strong and fast the vibration is. Most rabbit vibrators have several settings for the speed, from a light tickle sensation, through to a high-intensity buzzing that almost would make your hand numb. Manufacturers offer this variance because women and their level of vibration requirement differ significantly. For women who enjoy a greater standard of vibration, a higher speed setting will be required, for those who are sensitive they may only require the lower vibration settings. The speed settings are in most cases controlled by push buttons on the base of the rabbit vibrator.

Patterns of Vibration - This is the type of vibration, and it will give you the pulse, thrust and rotation of the beads in the main and clitoral shafts. There are usually several types of pattern that a rabbit vibrator can achieve with mixing vibration speed with pulse/thrust levels.

The main thing to consider in regards to the speed and patterns of vibration is, always choose a toy with options. If the rabbit vibrator is limited to one speed, then this will limit your ability to go to that next level. If this is your first toy, then having several speeds is important as it will allow you to experiment, find speed settings that suit you, and your orgasm requirements.

Once you have used a vibrator a few times you will find one particular pattern of vibration that you enjoy more than the others. You will subsequently return to this same pattern, but your selection of vibration speed will almost always vary in intensity over time, and often during the same session. The type of vibration pattern and rate that women like varies considerably from woman to woman.

In summary, we recommend:-

  • Choose a rabbit vibrator with several settings of both – flexibility is the key. Do not limit yourself to one speed of vibration for your rabbit vibrator you might feel let down by the lack of options.
 

Regular Batteries vs Rechargeable

Choosing a toy with standard batteries vs. inbuilt rechargeable battery powered is an important consideration when making a purchase, as it can impact ongoing costs of running your vibrator.

Commonly the standard insertable battery-powered rabbit vibrators are cheaper, (not necessarily lower quality), and higher priced rabbits are rechargeable. Of course when considering which one to buy there are some considerations beyond the battery and the price, we’ve laid out a pro and con list here.

Battery Powered

Pro’s
  • If the batteries do die, then you can easily and quickly replace them.
  • Cheaper toys use these batteries.
Con’s
  • Always need to keep a spare set of replacement batteries on hand. Some toys take AA, some AAA, some N size, some AG13 and so dependent on how many toys you have; you may need to keep a range of them handy. Always buy a good quality brand and place them in the chamber in the correct polarity + to + and – to -.
  • Extra expense for buying replacement batteries.
  • If you recharge your batteries and your toy does not seem to work, it is probably the batteries causing the problem. Some toys just do not work with rechargeable batteries. These are usually larger than standard disposable batteries, and they get stuck in the battery casings. If you do have issues of this nature, then try a normal, regular set of disposable batteries.
  • If you do not use your rabbit vibrator very often then batteries can corrode on their own – this is a common problem in battery operated appliances.

Rechargeable:

Pro’s
  • These offer convenience, are easy to use, and you never need to worry about buying or putting batteries in them.
Con’s
  • You may have forgotten to plug your toy in to charge after the last use.
  • Being a sealed compartment if the battery fails completely, you will not be able to change it.

If your rabbit vibrator is standard battery powered, before cleaning, always remove the batteries.

In summary, we recommend:-

  • Choose a rabbit vibrator with the type of battery that suits your budget, and your experience.
choose your battery type in your vibrator carefully
 
waterproof vs water-resistant

Waterproof vs Water-Resistant

Some rabbit vibrators are waterproof, some are water-resistant, and some are not to be used near water at all.

Typically the cheaper end of the market, are not safe for use near water. The mid price point is typically water-resistant, and the higher end is water-proof. Of course this is a typical scenario, please check the rabbit vibrator you are intending on purchasing to ensure it suits your water-based activity requirements.

When you receive your toy, also be sure to read the manufacturer’s instructions before taking your toy into the shower or anywhere near water because there is a difference between Waterproof and Water-resistant.

If a toy is water-resistant, you can not take it in the bath or hot tub with you and you cannot submerge it in water to clean it. You will need to remove the batteries just in case they become exposed to moisture, and then clean the toy and dry it thoroughly before putting the batteries back in.

If your vibrator is waterproof, then you can expect to be able to take it in the bath, in the hot tub or in the shower where it will be okay if submerged in water.

So, bear this in mind when choosing your vibrator especially if you spend much time in or close to the water.

Cleaning is easy with a waterproof toy because you drop it in some warm soapy water and wash it quickly.

In summary, we recommend:-

  • Waterproofing comes at a slightly higher cost, but you can use it in the bath, or under water.
  • Water-resistant does not mean you can submerge the vibrator in water.
  • Check the manufacturer’s instructions before using near or in water.
  • Choose the rabbit toy that best suits the place you enjoy to have an orgasm > if in the bath or shower, then choose a waterproof one.
 

Trusted Brands

We nearly always recommend to customers that they choose a trusted brand of rabbit vibrator. Why? They have better quality parts, are made from better quality materials, come with an excellent warranty, are made under hygienic conditions. They also last longer than some of the cheaper products; this might also mean they come with a slightly higher price tag, but the positives far outweigh the negatives – picking a trusted name is advised.

From our experience, the top rabbit vibrator brands are (in no particular order of preference): LELO, Doc Johnson, California Exotics, PipeDream, BMS/Swan, and New Sensation Novelties.

If you have chosen a brand previously and found it to be good, you might be more brand loyal, and want to select that name again. We encourage you to do that, as you are more likely to be happy with your purchase. If however you are open to change or bought a dud last time, and then please consider one of the brands listed above, or throughout this buyers guide.

In summary, we recommend:-

  • Choosing a branded toy is better than an unknown/untested brand
Brand of rabbit vibrator matters - choose carefully, a brand with good production history
 
warranties associated to rabbit vibrators

Warranty

Warranty on your rabbit vibrator can vary, and it may be something that you have not considered when buying your new vibrator. Some of the very cheap items do not have a warranty at all and are considered throw-away items after only two or three uses. Luckily there are not that many rabbit vibes that fall into this category.

It is imperative to consider what warranty a toy has before making a purchase.

For example, both LELO and Swan offer 12-month replacement warranties for product defects on all their products. This is the top end of the price bracket, but they also come with a lot more surety in their quality purely because they do not want to get returns. So choosing a rabbit vibrator from these two brands will likely prove to be an excellent purchase.

In summary, we recommend:-

  • If you can afford it, then buy a quality brand like LELO, or Swan – you will not regret it, and not just for the warranty!
  • Unfortunately, every toy will break at some stage due to any number of factors. Fortunately by the time you want a replacement something newer and more modern is most likely to be available.
 

Price

Often we hear customers say that price is a critical consideration in their choice. We tend to agree, but once we have started asking questions about the type of toy a customer wants, and the features they like, we usually find their ideal toy is in a higher price bracket than they really want to spend.

The truth is, if you have read this guide, the points above, and still want the best in all of the categories mentioned, then you are not going to get all of those things for a bargain basement price. You will need to make compromises, or revise your budget.

Quality products will in general mean that they command a higher price. Fortunately, a quality toy will last and will probably never go out of fashion. You will also find that better quality toys have more features than cheaper ones. This is because the top end manufacturers have invested a considerable amount of time and money in making their toys more technologically advanced, and with improved materials. They not only make them last longer but are superior in operation, and more user-friendly than some of the cheaper rabbit vibrators on the market.

In summary, we recommend:-

  • Don’t make a purchase based solely on price. Look for the features you want in your rabbit vibrator, and the type that you like, and then consider the best options from there.
price is a serious consideration when choosing a rabbit vibrator
 

Summary

Choosing a rabbit vibrator can be a daunting task if you're new to using vibrating toys. The main thing to consider when choosing a rabbit vibrator is to answer the question - what kind of orgasm and pleasure do I like? If you answer this question then you should be looking for, and choosing a rabbit vibrator that best suits your requirements, and best answers the question. Typically if you are considering a rabbit vibrator then you like both clitoral and g-spot. If you're not in the same price zone as a Lelo product, then it's best to choose a reputable brand, and maybe one of the more popular products from those ranges.
