Elegant, upscale, and hand-crafted with amazing attention to detail, this luxurious line of glass massagers will leave you breathless. Each hand-blown Icicle glass wand is sleek, unique, and made to play hard. The hypoallergenic glass is nonporous and body safe, and when cared for properly, is designed to last a lifetime. Run the wand under warm water or place it in the microwave to heat things up. Chill it under cold water or put it in the freezer for a cool sensation. Since glass is nonporous, cleanup is a snap. Use Pipedream Toy Cleaner and warm water, or throw it in the dishwasher for a worry-free wash after the fun.
Modest In Size But Not In Pleasure!, September 29, 2012
I was lucky enough to find myself the owner of an Icicles No 08 Glass dildo after recently winning a competition. It had been a while since I had last played with a glass toy despite the fact that I own several glass dildos already. I was at one time a fan of the feel of glass but had turned into a silicone addict since. I was excited waiting for my my new icicles to arrive and more than glad to have an excuse to give glass toys a try again.
The icicles No 08 Dildo arrived beautifully packaged in a black and white box which describes the item within as being a 'hand blown glass massager'. The front of the box features an illustration of the toy within and pulls open to reveal the toy itself sitting behind a window of clear plastic. The packaging though simple has a feel of elegance to it and is the type of packaging that you might hold onto for more long term storage of the toy. When opened the box safely contains the Glass toy within inner foam packaging.
Once removed from its packaging the first thing I thought upon seeing the icicles No 08 was "wow this is pretty petite" My second thought was of how wonderfully this toy reflects light. I have owned some pretty aesthetically pleasing glass toys before but none match this or are even close. The blue spirals within the glass show tints of purple and turquoise when the light hits them, while the outside of the glass reflects rainbow colours, blues, purples, greens and yellows.
In terms of size the Icicles No 08 has an overall length of 7 inches or 5 1/4 inches of insertable length if you insert up to the beginning of the ball. In girth the 'ripples' of the toy vary from 2 1/2 inches to 3 1/4 inches in circumference and the 'ball' end is 5 inches in circumference.
-Overall Length: 7"
-Insertable Lenghth: 5 1/4"
-Circumference: 2 1/2 at thinnest and 5" at Ball
With this not being the longest and certainly not being a girthy toy (with the exception of the ball end) I would highly recommend this to anyone new to toys and looking for their first glass toy. As a fan of smaller toys myself I was relieved to see the size of this in person but I feel that even people used to larger toys will enjoy this, with the added sensation the ripples create and the option of inserting the balled end for G-spot stimulation this toy is likely to satisfy most.
I find my favourite use for this is to first warm it up in hands and apply a small amount of lube before inserting the smaller end using the ball as a handle, the sensations from slowly inserting the ripples can be surprisingly intense. This being a smooth textured toy I also found it great for lubing up and using to rub my clit, and being made of glass it can be heated up or cooled down before play. I find the easiest way to do this is to rest the toy in either warm or cold water before use. You can also chill this in the freezer and according to its packaging it is even safe to heat in the microwave.
Another benefit of being made of glass is that this toy is hypoallergenic, body-safe and non-porous. Cleaning is also easy, I clean mine with warm soapy water but this can also be placed in the dishwasher, as it is non-porous it doesn't absorb or harbour bacteria within its material. I use water based lube with mine but any type of lubricant can be used with it.
Beautiful, easy to clean and store, ripples feel amazing.
This is the toy that re-awoke my love of glass toys and that's understandable with its simple but effective shape. Petite enough to be beginner friendly but still very stimulating.

I Love My Glass!, August 23, 2011
Icicles No. 8 has been an amazing addition to my toy box for so many reasons. For starters, glass will never degrade and will look beautiful forever! The large rounded end is perfect for g-spot stimulation and the small end is awesome for anal play. I love the smooth slippery surface requires little lubrication and since it is non-porous, glass can be completely sterilized!
