NobEssence describes its toys as wooden sculptures, and it's easy to see why, with the beautifully executed Fling. Ergonomically designed to be comfortable for both individuals and couples-though we found it much easier to use solo-the toy incorporates a unique hole in the handle to accommodate two fingers and provide slip-proof control. Another selling point of the Fling is its luxury packaging. The artfully designed brown-and-blue box isn't the simple cardboard variety we're used to seeing. Instead, in keeping with NobEssence's environmental consciousness, the recyclable box is made from paper-coated wood. Included with each toy are instructions for proper care and maintenance. The toy we reviewed is crafted from bamboo, though other hardwoods are available.
