Does anybody out there own one of these, or one from the line period. the prices are a little jaw dropping for the size and the design. Yeah there cute, but Jesus, there's nothing really special about them. Would like to hear from actual owners before I buy one.

I have the Spirit. It's fairly powerful and the silicone is high quality. Power Bullets are usually pricey (the motor in these as well as the Jopen line). The Spirit is really ergonomic - the most ergonomic vibrator I own, in fact. That's its high point for me.

The down sides are that they aren't as strong as cheaper brands and the battery life is short.

They have several luxury-vibe features.

Not everything pricey is mind-blowing. Perhaps they spent a lot on research and development and need to recoup it.

Rechargeable Lithium ion batteries are expensive.

Therefore, rechargeable vibrators are expensive. This is true across all brands and designs.

Can someone do a search and find the cheapest rechargeable vibe? I'm guessing there won't be one under $~80.

I agree that these are priced high but they are a luxury vibe. As mentioned in other comments above the battery and the power bullet likely contribute to the cost. Also most if not all luxury vibe come with a 1 year warranty against defect. I imagine that this also contributes to the high price. Also most silicone products have a higher price tag suggesting that it's not a cheep material. The technology used to develop this product may also be contributing to the price.

The Leaf line is overpriced compared to what it's offering compared to similar products.

I spent $91 on mine and am not unhappy. I feel this is more in-line with what they're actually worth - $80-100.

Touch vs the life. One just seems a little bigger in diameter.

There are also advertising that they are an eco-friendly sex toy as well, the materials or methods used could have increased the price point.

It's a waterproof, eco-friendly, vibrating art piece.

I'd also like to hear from other owners. It's something I'm looking at, but also can't figure out why the price is so high.

I have "Life" and I genuinely feel it was worth the money. It is one of the best vibes I've ever used. The shape is outstanding, comfortable to hold and it puts pressure on just the places where I need it. The silicone has a lovely sensual feel. It's unbelievably quiet--very important for me, since I live in a teeny apartment with very thin walls! But the thing that makes it really worth it to my mind is the quality of the vibrations themselves. They aren't just strong, but they are deep and rumbly and, for me, just perfect. Instant pleasure.

I know it seems odd to pay so much for a little green 3-speed vibe, and I sometime really do wish it at least had a few extra vibe patterns! But what it does, it does better than anything else, and that really does make it pretty darn special.

This response is actually making me want to buy one, where I previously has no interest. Keep thine witchcraft away from me!

I just bought the life and I think it's worth it. Very powerful, nice design, waterproof, rechargeable, Eco-friendly. Basically everything I look for in a vibe. Most of the time, you get what you pay for.

I'm looking into the Mood breezy heart, USB charge, and got good reviews, downsize not water proof but on sale now and even it's regular price is reasonable
