Evaluation: Pink Punch Sundown Mushroom


Pink Punch Sunset MushroomSome of the memorable merchandise I’ve reviewed this 12 months to date must be the Pink Punch Peachu. While the suction toy sadly wasn’t in a position to fulfill me in addition to I hoped, I used to be blown away by each different side of it. Regardless of being a comparatively new model with just one different product underneath their belt, Pink Punch had clearly utilized a excessive degree of thought and consideration into their flagship stimulator, with the design of the toy itself and every thing else regarding it being distinctive. The Peachu, based mostly appropriately on a peach, is a mini murals, as is its discreet packaging, distinctive storage case (which doubled as a charging dock), and cyberpunk-style cellphone app for long-distance management. So, when that evaluation was finished, the one factor on my thoughts was getting my fingers on Pink Punch’s different launch, the Sundown Mushroom.

Product Description

While the Pink Punch Sundown Mushroom is a very completely different model of toy in comparison with the Peachu, all the key parts that made it so particular stay. Meaning it’s appropriate with the PinkPunch App and comes with a customized storage case for added discretion and journey security, which might additionally perform as a charging dock, wirelessly connecting to the product when it’s positioned inside. Moreover, the combination of translucent body-safe silicone masking a gradient of colored silicone (this time being pink to yellow) that I liked a lot can be nonetheless current, alongside a couple of additional particulars, equivalent to dots of pink upon the yellow head to provide it extra of a mushroom look. On that be aware, Pink Punch have once more been fairly correct with their naming, with the Sundown Mushroom having the looks of a mushroom bathed in sundown colors. Wanting like an especially small wand massager (and dealing like one too), it then has a distinguished head, earlier than scaling down to a curved deal with, and this works so nicely I’m stunned I’ve by no means seen a mushroom-inspired massager earlier than! On the very prime, you’ll discover a small cross indented, which is a pleasant contact each visually and textually, actually highlighting that translucent silicone, though not like on the Peachu, this materials is definitely fairly agency. A single button then rests on the finish of the toy, and close by you’ll discover a small flap with a gap in it. It is a little bit of an interruption to the in any other case clean and conventional design, and the intention is that it means that you can connect the included pink retrieval string (this encompasses a love coronary heart on the finish, doubling down on that nostalgic Polly Pocket really feel), which you’ll be able to then use to take away the toy throughout insertion. Though I’m undecided why Pink Punch thought such a factor was wanted, because the Sundown Mushroom doesn’t appear like a toy that ought to be inserted, and even the directions point out a number of occasions that inner use will not be advisable. Lastly, the toy can be absolutely waterproof.

I truly discovered it so troublesome to take a photograph of the Sundown Mushroom in its case as a result of noise it makes, that I resorted to utilizing the damaged model (which is an identical) for this photograph.

Preliminary Issues

Proper from the getgo there was an issue with the Pink Punch Sundown Mushroom… it didn’t work! To be extra particular, it couldn’t maintain its cost. I don’t know whether or not the fault lied within the toy itself or the charging case, however while throughout cost every thing appeared wonderful, in addition to instantly after, during which the toy might activate usually, throughout the hour it could once more have a very flat battery, even when it was turned off the whole time. I used to be unable to make use of it, and after asking round, it was fairly clear this was not regular. Fortunately Pink Punch have been variety sufficient to ship out a second copy, which is what I’ll be reviewing immediately. It’s additionally value noting that while I could have simply been very unfortunate, since I haven’t heard of anybody else having this difficulty, if I acquired a dud copy then it could be downside for others too, and whereas Pink Punch don’t seem to supply a standard guarantee or have any correct info on returns on their web site, it does checklist them as having a one-year alternative service for high quality points within the instruction handbook.

Supply

My authentic order for the Sundown Mushroom was positioned with Pink Punch on the twenty first of April. I had points receiving this package deal, because it went out for supply on the 4th of Could, however as an alternative received delayed seemingly indefinitely till I contacted the courier, who lastly delivered it on the seventeenth. So after virtually a month of ready, I used to be extremely disillusioned when the toy didn’t work. On the third of June, Pink Punch confirmed a alternative could be despatched, nevertheless it was not shipped until the thirtieth, presumably on account of inventory points. Lastly, on the sixth of July, my new Sundown Mushroom arrived, this time with out difficulty. The one constructive about this expertise was that no less than each packages have been completely discreet, with no point out of the sender or the contents.

Packaging

Pink Punch Sunset Mushroom packaging

The Sundown Mushroom arrived in virtually an identical packaging to the Peachu, which was incredible since I completely adored what I acquired with that toy. You may see a video I filmed of it right here, or try the Peachu’s evaluation for an in-depth description, however it’s primarily a high-quality field coated in lovely illustrations of the toy. Plus, the very best bit is the clear plastic sleeve that surrounds it, as all the textual content and data on the toy is on this, which means you’ll be able to merely take away it for a discreet storage field. Opening this up, you’ll then discover the Sundown Mushroom resting in its case, which it itself is resting in plastic, and the toy additionally comes with a set of stickers that includes extra of these discreet illustrations, a charging twine (this isn’t solely pink, making it straightforward to establish, but it surely additionally options the Pink Punch brand), an introductory card, and a big instruction handbook, which can be crammed with extra art work of the toy. Sadly although, despite the fact that it’s solely been a month since I acquired this copy of the Sundown Mushroom, the Pink Punch web site now lists the product as coming with various packaging, and I’ve seen posts on their social media which appear to verify the change. Whereas I don’t have this packaging for comparability, it doesn’t look nice, and contemplating I’ve already acknowledged that the OG Pink Punch field is “the nicest packaging for a intercourse toy I’ve ever acquired” in my evaluation of the Peachu, I can not think about any change goes to be value it.

Charging

The Pink Punch Sundown Mushroom is USB rechargeable, with its battery being crammed wirelessly when in its case. Though while I’ve reviewed intercourse toys with charging instances and stands earlier than, together with the Peachu, I’ve by no means used one fairly like this. Much like how Apple’s AirPods work, the thought with the Sundown Mushroom is that the case can maintain its personal cost, which might then maintain the toy’s battery full even when it isn’t plugged into something. This was one thing I struggled to grasp at first, as it isn’t clearly defined on both the Pink Punch web site or the instruction handbook. However primarily, when plugged right into a USB port, the charging case will take two hours to completely cost, with the sunshine on its facet blinking while on cost and turning off upon completion (the directions truly checklist this as staying on when full). The toy can be charged right now, which is able to take two hours as nicely. Alternatively, as soon as the case is absolutely charged, it is ready to cost the Sundown Mushroom 3 times earlier than needing to be plugged again in, and this can take 2.5 hours every time, with the heart-shaped gentle throughout the case blinking throughout cost and turning off upon completion. As soon as absolutely charged, the toy ought to final for round one hour, which is low, however made up for with the case. While you’ll then be capable to examine on the battery degree of the Sundown Mushroom throughout the app, the case additionally supplies this info in the event you click on the button on its facet, with the sunshine exhibiting what number of of these three costs it has left (this isn’t defined in any respect within the directions and was solely just lately added to the web site, nevertheless, so I had no concept what the button did until now). Lastly, whereas all of that is nice, regardless of being just a little lengthy winded, it’s let down by one main downside. When the Sundown Mushroom is positioned in its case to cost, it virtually all the time emits a high-pitched noise that’s virtually painful to listen to. It’s turn into such an issue that I’ve taken to avoiding inserting the toy again in its case for storage, and once I have to cost it, it must be in a special room from me. Each my copies of the Sundown Mushroom have this difficulty, so I don’t suppose it’s only a fault in mine.

Customized Case

As for the case itself, it is a lot of enjoyable, even with out the charging factor. I discussed in my evaluation of the Pink Punch Peachu how a lot the app leaned into 90s / 2000s nostalgia, they usually’ve finished it once more with the Sundown Mushroom, as this has full Polly Pocket and Completely Spies! vibes. Pink and yellow to match the toy, this difficult plastic case has an airbrushed-looking gradient on the surface, that includes the Pink Punch brand on the prime (making it sadly not privateness protected against a inquisitive Google search), and a bunch of authorized info on the underside (once more, not discreet, because it lists the product being a vibrator), in addition to line work all through that makes it appear like some type of sci-fi capsule (the directions truly name it an area capsule). On the underside you’ll additionally discover grip pads, to make sure it doesn’t slide round no matter floor it’s positioned on, and on one facet you’ll discover the charging gap, which is normally coated by a small piece of silicone. In the meantime, on the entrance sits the indicator gentle and its button. Opening the case, the lid solely goes 90 levels, and right here you’ll discover a Sundown Mushroom-shaped opening for the toy to relaxation in, alongside its retrieval twine, the opposite indicator gentle (which sits throughout the twine’s heart-shaped deal with) and the Pink Punch brand. Just a few extra small aesthetic particulars then function within this, persevering with that cyberpunk really feel.

Controls

The PinkPunch App might provide better management for individuals who want to use it, however the toy can be managed with the one button at its base. Plus, whereas it could appear like a wand massager, this product is definitely much more like a bullet vibrator each with reference to the way it feels and the way it’s managed, and with this in thoughts, the one button management is fairly customary. To show the toy on, merely maintain down the button till you are feeling a fast vibration, which is able to place the toy in stand-by mode. You may then proceed clicking this to cycle via the Sundown Mushroom’s eight modes, three of that are regular and 5 of that are patterns, earlier than returning to stand-by mode. Lastly, to show it off once more merely maintain down the button. That is all wonderful up entrance, however there are some issues (which appears to be changing into a pattern with this toy). Firstly, the button is kind of troublesome to press. There isn’t a indication of the place it’s besides visible (and the idea it’s on the toy’s tip), and even when you’ll be able to see it, it nonetheless requires a good quantity of stress to really use, which I’ve discovered tiring. Secondly, this product does one thing I’ve presumably by no means seen on a intercourse toy earlier than: it has no gentle! That is notably unusual contemplating it has a stand-by mode (customary for any toy that has an app), as a result of it means there’s completely no indication that the toy is on when on this mode, not solely making it more durable to find the button at midnight, however making it extraordinarily possible individuals will overlook about it and drain the battery accidentally.

The App

I already reviewed the PinkPunch App not too way back for the Peachu, and since then there has solely been one minor bug repair replace, so for loads of screenshots and in-depth particulars on the app I’d advocate testing that put up. Total although, this app may be very easy in comparison with others in the marketplace, and the one actual use for it’s the long-distance accomplice management choice. Though for individuals who need a good better vary of regular speeds (or no less than the impression of them), having the ability to use your finger to steadily increase the depth all the way in which from 0 to 100 is fairly nice too. Testing it out with the Sundown Mushroom, the principle distinction I discovered was merely that the photographs within the “Begin” part are completely different and extra shroom-focused (as it’s referred to as within the App). Moreover, a brand new bug I encountered was that in the event you slide your finger up and down right here, primarily inserting the vibrations on full velocity after which off once more quickly after, the toy can take round 10 seconds to really flip off, which is a big lag. Lastly, the one different distinction I famous is that while the out there handbook for the Peachu was completely in Chinese language, it is usually out there in English for the Sundown Mushroom.

First Impressions

All the pieces had been clean crusing for my Pink Punch Peachu, earlier than it reached this level and began to go downhill. So the truth that there have already been so many points with the Sundown Mushroom was regarding. Plus, this toy is tiny, so I’m clearly not anticipating it to have tremendous robust vibrations. Turning it on for the primary time, my assumption was confirmed, with the motor feeling buzzy and weak. Plus, it is usually fairly loud, and since buzzy equals high-pitched, this noise travels greater than with different toys, making it not excellent for privateness.

My Expertise

I loved utilizing the Pink Punch Sundown Mushroom greater than the Peachu. However sadly that’s the place the positives finish. Apart from the points we’ve already mentioned, such because the weak vibrations and troublesome to make use of button, there isn’t something incorrect with the Sundown Mushroom. However there isn’t something nice about it both. What it makes me consider, on account of its measurement and motor power, is definitely the small novelty keychain-style wands you see typically. And, really, that’s how I’d describe this product: a novelty. As a result of while every thing about it’s enjoyable and quirky, the precise use falls quick. Orgasms do come ultimately and really feel ok, however there’s little to maintain me going again for extra. Plus, I actually suppose making the pinnacle so agency was a mistake, particularly since Pink Punch went out of their technique to make the Peachu’s physique smooth for no motive aside from aesthetics. As for testing the product internally, I didn’t do that since it’s clearly not meant for it, and the directions even point out a number of occasions that it isn’t advisable. If it wasn’t for the retrieval string I by no means would have even thought-about it, and so aside from as an additional deal with (which jogs my memory of the charms we use to connect to telephones, excellent for that nostalgia vibe) it has no use.

Cleansing & Care

The Pink Punch Sundown Mushroom’s outer layer of translucent silicone didn’t like my pictures lights, washing out the colored interior layer. Try these images for a extra correct have a look at its usually vibrant physique.

Cleansing the Pink Punch Sundown Mushroom is straightforward since it’s waterproof. After use, merely give it a wash with some heat soapy water, earlier than rinsing and leaving to air dry. When you have used it internally, the method is generally the identical, however simply be certain that to get any gunk out of the retrieval twine’s gap. After you could retailer it within the charging case (which will even recharge it!), however be certain that to not get the case moist as this isn’t waterproof. As well as, do be certain that to not use silicone-based lubricants with this product, as it could harm the silicone it’s manufactured from.

Remaining Ideas

Just like the Pink Punch Peachu, visually every thing is ideal in relation to the Sundown Mushroom. However while I might see the trouble this new model had put into every side of the design, together with thrilling improvements just like the AirPods-style charging case, it simply felt like each space additionally had flaws. The truth is, the one factor I had no complaints about was the packaging, which they’ve apparently now modified to a worse design! While issues did enhance from my preliminary damaged copy of the toy, additional issues just like the high-pitched noise the charger makes, the dearth of indicator gentle and the battle to press its button all added up, and when it lastly got here time to check it in use, I used to be left feeling just like the Sundown Mushroom was merely not definitely worth the trouble. As a result of on the finish of the day, the vibrations are very sub-par, and so actually you might be paying for all that additional stuff. Functionally, the most important constructive I’ve for this toy is the app, and at simply $150 AUD / $99 USD, that is truly the most cost effective long-distance appropriate vibrator I’ve tried. So this, mixed with how giftable an merchandise it’s, makes it excellent as a gift for a accomplice who has a desire for cute issues. However in any other case, in the event you’re merely searching for a robust wand massager or clitoral vibrator to make use of solo, then this isn’t for you.
