Today, I am reviewing another type of “sex toy” – a sex doll. I have written about why I like sex dolls and I have shared in different web forums my increasing collection (4 to date). I have already written about the Love Venus R, so today I want to write about another of the dolls – the Teddy Babe.
After a month or so with “Kyoko” as I renamed my Teddy Babe “Akiko”, I can say that Teddy Babes (or TB) are rightfully “cuddle monsters”. These dolls are basically an adult themed version of the teddy bears many of us remember from our childhood. There are two different sizes of the TBs – the traditional TB which measures about 4 feet tall and the newer TB Deluxe, measuring 5 feet 2 inches tall. Both models have cartoonish features, vinyl eye decals, latex lips, and large breasts with the Deluxe models having toes and more lifelike proportions. They are known as cuddling monsters because they feel as good as the mentioned teddy bears: TBs are soft, cute as hell, and even sexy when photographed.

TBs come from the factory ready to use: they come dressed in a teddy lingerie with matching panties, acrylic finger nails, attached good quality wig, earrings, a removable velour pouch in the vaginal area for sex making / masturbation, a pair of color matching stockings, and an instruction / care booklet. I bought the “Akiko” model which resembled an Asian woman, but the manufacturer has other models available – brunettes, Latinas, redheads, blondes, and even a vampire model!
Now, they can be cuddly and adorable, but that is not the purpose I bought her – the purpose was to use it as a “sleeve mount”: a place to put my sleeves to have hands free sessions. So, is a TB good to fuck?
The answer to this question is a single word: frustrating. When new, the TBs are stiff as a board – the legs barely open and their wire skeleton is hard to bend. Once you pose the TB for a few weeks (so the wire skeleton looses a little), then the legs open wide enough. That is part of the frustration – the doll is almost impossible to use as a sex toy during the first few weeks of ownership. Then the insert is another frustration. The original velour insert is not erotic at all, so many owners substitute it with any of the onaholes / sleeves inserts commercially available. Fleslights or full size Meikis do not fit, so you have to stick with mid size inserts similar to the ones used with the Love Venus R. Missionary position is tricky, requiring a few strategically placed pillows to allow for sex making. Her on top is quite easy to achieve once the legs open enough, and doggy style is possible once the wire skeleton is softened enough – something that can take months.

- Cute and adorable.
- Don’t scream “sex doll” and many women don’t find them intimidating (they are not “realistic” enough to be an adversary for them).
- Fun to hold and squeeze
- Lightweight – around 10 pounds (4 feet TB)
- Easy to customize, dress and accessorize.
- Easy to clean and maintain – clean as you clean most pillows and cushions.
- Temperamental to pose / adjust during use.
- Difficult to place a third-party sleeve
- Cartoon-like proportions
Verdict: Teddy Babes are a good entry-level doll that allows customization and good hands free sessions once her skeleton looses its original stiffness.
