Flora Forever - Fun Factory has stolen my heart

I love, love, love this toy. It's cute, easy to use, slender and nimble. The vibrations are strong, but it's quite quiet, with an emergency off button. It has great customer service and has a 2-year warranty. It's supposedly waterproof, but I can say it IS water-resistant. It has a super long battery life and is USB charged! It's a slam dunk for me!
strong vibration, quiet, ridged, pretty, rechargeable, multifunction, 2 year warranty!
cleaning is difficult, needs storage, may not make 2 years

extremely useful review
The Fun Factory 'Flora' model has some bang for your buck. I personally love this toy - it's small, but powerful, and I have definitely gotten my money's worth out of this one. I purchased it as part of the EdenFantasys bundle deal, so it comes with a 'Microtouch' mini-vibe and Kama Sutra Strawberry 'love balm' - for free!

Fun Factory has the loveliest packaging - clean, easy to open, but not made for long term storage. The actual instruction packet that comes with it is not very helpful. However, the toy itself is simple and intuitive enough that it wasn't too much of a problem.

The Toy Itself:
Cute, ribbed, waterproof and rechargeable? What's not to like?
With several different functions, the Flora model can go from the softest, feather-touch vibrations to 'bring down the house' mode in seconds. The + and - buttons on it are self-explanatory, and exploring all the different settings is guaranteed to find at least one winner for you. With that being said, this still had more vroom than I expected - and the battery life is AMAZING. I've used Flora on its highest setting for 2 hours straight without it dying on me. Think of what you're saving on AAAs!

It is a bit small, so be prepared for vaginal use. It is slender, nimble and easily maneuverable - which makes it a great first serious toy for beginners. Experienced users might be a bit disappointed with this toy's size and power - I would recommend saving your money and upgrading to the Stronic Eins, or something of that nature. However, the small size actually makes it easier to hit your G-spot.

Bonus: If you live with housemates like I do, having a quiet toy is important. The Flora's other fun function is the instant shut off button. No press and hold, no waiting for shut off - knock at your door? Go answer it without fear. The vibrations are not silent, but unless you live with paper-thin walls, it will not be a problem.

My first Flora actually came with a wall-charger, and not the USB I expected. This was actually a welcome change for me, as I could take my laptop with me during the day and leave the toy to charge at home without fear. A note on charging - the toy will NOT function while charging. The Click n' Charge technology is pretty cool - albeit you have to make sure the toy will not roll or fall away from it, as it easily disconnects.

Well, the material of the toy itself is silicone. Obviously, this means that you have to be careful with what type of lube you use with it and how you clean it. The texture itself is great and user-friendly - not too cold or stiff during use. However, the silicone does have a distinctive smell - for first time silicone users, that might be a turn-off.

The silicone also makes it a little more difficult to clean. Although the texture is much softer, and more skin-like, the ridges on this baby cause little deposits to form on them during use. Now don't get me wrong, the ridges are pretty great for internal usage, and definitely help to rev your engine. However, they do make clean-up a bit more intensive than just 'wipe and go'. I would recommend getting some heavy-duty sex toy wipes with this one - it's well worth the investment.

The Flora has an easy travel mode, as well. It locks down in a matter of seconds, and won't turn on until you press and hold a certain combination. It certainly managed to stay off for me through airport security and still had plenty of battery when I reached my destination - pretty impressive.

All in all, I love my Flora - and I anticipate the two of us being good buddies for quite a while. I would hands-down give her a 5/5 for me. It may not be for everyone, but with all its good looks and charm, I couldn't help but fall in love.
A Note on Fun Factory:
Sadly, my Flora died about 3 months after I got it. It just died during the middle of play and would not take a charge. Suffice it to say, I was rather annoyed. That is, until I contacted Fun Factory about a replacement. When I bought this toy, I was unaware that it came with a 2-year warranty. When I contacted support via email, they got right back to me. I sent them a pdf of my Eden Receipt, and my address and voila! A week later I have a brand, spanking new Flora and a free set of 'Smart Balls' (Kegel balls) without having to mess around with customer verification, etc. It was almost too easy - no paying shipping or exchange, etc! I didn't have to ship in anything and it was so low-hassle that I couldn't even be annoyed that it died. THANKS, FUN FACTORY!
Follow-up commentary
It's been a while since I last updated this review, and my Flora is still going strong after a year of near-everyday usage.

After the initial quick replacement, I have had zero issues. The damn thing holds a charge the same as before (I'm currently on vacation for a WEEK, and felt comfortable simply pre-charging before I left. No extra cords for this lady).

The only things I have grown less and less fond of is using it for vaginal stimulation. The ridges on the Flora are not the texture that I enjoy, and I tend to use it clitorally for its strong vibration. Plus, they're a pain in the butt to clean - I still haven't worked out a good system!

I still love my Flora - I haven't touched my other sex toys in about 5 months. It might not be strong enough for everyone, but it still satisfies this battle-hardened vagina! Worth. Every. Penny.
