Fun Factory Tiger Dildo Review

I’ll tell you one thing I never considered would make a dildo better, and that’s a handle. It makes total sense to add one, but sex toys so rarely have them.

It wasn’t even something I thought was possible until I came across the Fun Factory Tiger dildo, whereupon it quickly became something I had to test out.

Fun Factory Tiger Dildo Review

If you’ve ever struggled to keep your grip on a toy, whether for yourself or whilst using it on someone else, then you might want to consider checking this product out. 

At the time of writing this article, Fun Factory is celebrating 25 years of “fun”, taking the time to create toys that inspire sexual exploration, using high-quality materials with a sustainable manufacturing process, giving them a tiny CO2 footprint, which is pretty sexy in its own right.

Their priority is encouraging their users to be playful and experiment, regardless of sex, gender, or orientation. Fun Factory aims to, as the name suggests, put the fun back into sex, whether you’re alone, in a couple, in a bed, bathtub, or in a car.

This can be seen in the bright colors, interesting designs, and wide range of toys available. 

The Tiger dildo is no exception to this - available in bright turquoise and with a tiger-striped design, this dildo promises great results with 6 different speeds and 6 different vibration patterns.

This review will break down the good and the bad to be found about the G5 Tiger dildo from Fun Factory. 

The Good

As mentioned above, one of the more unique aspects of this product is the ergonomic handle which allows for a greater range of movement and much better grip.

No more losing your hold on the toy because of an excess of lube or in the bath/shower - yes, this toy is also totally waterproof. 

A feature of this product that I particularly enjoy is the QuickSTOP function, which is a part of the intuitive controls and allows you to easily and quickly stop the vibration in you’re interrupted for some reason.

God knows there’s nothing worse than frantically trying to find the controls to turn a vibrator off when you hear someone approaching. It’s really a testament to the manufacturer’s understanding of practicality.

On top of this there’s also a travel lock that ensures it doesn’t accidentally turn on in your suitcase and leave you with an awkward situation at the airport. 

This dildo comes with a USB cable for when you need to recharge it - you’ll be able to tell due to the charging light - and once it’s fully powered it offers 45 minutes of play on the highest speed, and up to 2 hours on lower settings.

Plus the medial grade, body-safe, non-porous silicone makes for super easy cleaning. 

The Bad

Nothing is perfect, and whilst this dildo has a ton of great, 5-star reviews, it also has a few negative reviews that deserve some recognition if you’re wondering whether this is the right vibrator for you. 

Some people have noted that this toy has a tendency to “dry out” whilst in use, which can end up being pretty uncomfortable or even painful if you’re not careful.

If this is the case with you then you will need to ensure that you’re using a lot of lube and reapplying it frequently, which can get a bit messy (thank goodness for the handle, at least). 

Some other reviewers claim that their product came defective or without vital things like the charging cable.

Although these are in the minority of complaints, it’s still worth bearing in mind that some people have these kinds of manufacturing issues, and that no company is going to be able to ship things perfectly every time.

Fun Factory state that they have a 30 day return policy through Amazon if the toy remains unopened, and a 2-year warranty on their toys in case something is broken or missing.

Fun Factory products also use a universal charger, meaning that if your product happens to be delivered without the charger, or you happen to lose or otherwise damage it, you'll be able to purchase a replacement. 

The Conclusion

Lots and lots of people have been reviewing the Fun Factory Tiger dildo very positively, and its not hard to figure out why. It seems to do everything that it claims and then some. All whilst being comfortable and quiet.

As with most Fun Factory products, you can tell that functionality was considered when designing the product, not just “what’s going to look the sexiest”.

Although there are definitely aspects that you need to bear in mind, like making sure you have enough water-based lube, I would happily recommend this product to anyone on the lookout for a new vibrator dildo. (Did I mention that practical handle?) 

Frequently Asked Questions

What Kind Of Lube Should I Use With This Product?

Due to the fact that this is a silicone toy, you’ll need to use water-based lubricants only whilst using it. This is because silicone based lube can react to silicone toys and make the surface feel tacky, which effectively ruins it.

Water-based lube is a far safer option as it’s very unlikely you or your toy will have a reaction to it. If it starts to dry out you can either apply more, or you can reactivate it with a drop of water. Or saliva. Which is convenient. 

Is The Product Shipped Discretely? 

Yes! All Fun Factory toys are shipped in plain packaging, with “shipping department” as the return address.

Even if someone does happen to see that you ordered something from “fun factory” they’re more likely to think it’s a kid’s toys company than anything else - unless they already know, in which case you’ve just made yourself an equally sexually-satisfied friend.
