Most sex toys aren't things you leave lying out and about. The Paris I Rub My Duckie definitely is pretty safe to leave lying out. Even my mother who knows about my sex toy habit stopped by one day and made a comment on how cute my rubber duck in the bathroom was with it's Swarvoski crystal nose piercing. I pressed the center of the Paris' back and my mom's jaw dropped when Paris promptly vibrated.
To get into Paris' battery compartment, a small Phillip's head screw driver is required. Slip two AA batteries into place, tightly screw the lid back down, and you're ready for some fun in the tub. Water based lubricant should only be used according to Big Teaze Toys (the maker), but as that won't last long in the tub I just skip it.

There's a small button in the Back of Paris' back that can be lightly felt when you run a finger over it. One press down and Paris is ready to party. The vibration is quiet, soft, and a deeper throbbing. Sadly, Paris wasn't enough to get me off clitorally. BUT this duck makes for one fantastic back massager in the tub.
Paris is made from latex and phthalate free PVC. While the material is pretty body friendly, be sure to not share the toy between partners and to clean her thoroughly after use. Cleaning is very easy as this duckie is waterproof. Also be sure to remove the feather boa before taking it in the tub.
So how did Paris fair in the tub? She floats sideways for one, minor detail, but I was hoping for upright sailing. She was watertight on the maiden voyage, but not so swell on her second trip to sea. I removed the battery compartment shocked to find it filled with water. I hadn't had this problem the first time, but did on the second and third uses. I decided to give Paris one more run before throwing her away, and she did well on the fourth and fifth tries. The vibrations are still going so I'm cautiously optimistic that the second and third times may have been user error.
If Paris decides to permanently water log, I'd say skip, but so far she's only flooded twice and continues to run. It's a cute duck that can be left out in a bathroom without raising any eyebrows and Paris gives one fantastic massage. I'm cautiously saying recommended.
