The Fun Factory Sundaze: My Journey
I chose the Sundaze to review because it seemed different! Testing sex toys for a living means you build up a collection pretty quickly, and ideally I want to have all kinds of toys included in mine. The thing about weird, new sex toys, though, is that they take a while to get to grips with. I had to take a thorough read-though the instructions in the box beforehand, and even then I wasn’t sure what to expect.
Trying it OutI started it up and was… underwhelmed. None of the modes I tried seemed strong enough for me! There were some interesting things going on with the pulsating, but the tapping felt weak and I really felt like I wanted more. Still, I persevered. I tried repositioning the Sundaze around so it could hit my G-spot better, and helped it along a bit by using my fingers for some clitoral stimulation. Eventually, it started to feel good! The orgasm wasn’t mind-blowingly intense, but it was comfortably pleasurable.
Why Would They Do That?!It was only when I started writing this review that I noticed something about the Sundaze. Every time I used it, I thought that the vibrations were pretty weird, but didn’t think much more about it. However, once I looked at the manual again, I realized that I hadn’t actually tried the vibrations at all! Fun Factory have chosen incredibly weird controls for this toy, where you actually start off in the middle of the settings when you turn it on! To access the vibrations, you press the power button and then use the – button to go back, where you can choose from 3 different, admittedly very rumbly speeds. It does say this in the manual, but not particularly clearly. Why they would make it this way is beyond me — it’s one of the least intuitive ways to control a sex toy that I’ve encountered.

What I like/dislike about the design
The Fun Factory Sundaze has a pretty interesting design. Probably the most noticeable thing is the big, flattened tip, which is designed to provide a large surface area for both g-spot massage and broad clitoral stimulation. The silicone shaft then tapers a bit before getting girthier again, and then there's a hard plastic handle. The shaft and tip have a bit of squish to them, but not enough to feel flexible like jelly. My Sundaze came in a wonderful pistachio green, but pink is also available.
My User Experience Unveiled
The first thing I thought when I picked up the Sundaze was 'wow, it's hefty!'. At just over 0.7 lbs, it might pose a bit of a challenge for those who aren't able to hold a heavier toy for a prolonged period, especially since it's designed for slower orgasms! The other thing I realized later was that the Sundaze has some... interesting controls. There are three buttons: the 'Fun Factory' on button, then + and - buttons. Rather than allowing you to skip between vibration, tapping and pulsating, you have to cycle through them all. Plus, it actually starts in the middle, and you have to use the - to find the vibrations! It doesn't seem to be the most user-friendly system.
How Well-made is the Fun Factory Sundaze?
The Fun Factory Sundaze is a premium sex toy, and, for the most part, it feels like it. Although its heft might put some people off, I do think it shows that it's solidly built. The functions also never falter, and nothing ever rattles around as you use it. I will, however, take off a couple of points for the feel of the silicone. I have no doubt that it's good, pure silicone, but it doesn't feel as silky smooth as other silicone sex toys.
The Fun Factory Sundaze: Balancing Quality and Cost
Before you look at the price of the Fun Factory Sundaze, I suggest you take a seat. While I wouldn't even consider calling it affordable, that's to be expected from such an innovative, premium product. However, I also understand that its high-end price tag might make you less willing to try out the unorthodox sensations that the Sundaze provides. Take a read through this review and decide for yourself whether you want to make the investment.
A Closer Look at the Fun Factory Sundaze’s Effectiveness
The Sundaze takes a bit of getting used to. It's unlikely to immediately blow you away, but it's not really meant to! Fun Factory say themselves that it's meant to help "break your orgasm habits and discover, step-by-step, uncharted paths to an exciting new climax". That's a big promise, and I can't say that it totally delivered on it. However, I did find myself really enjoying the more intense modes — it gave a good g-spot massage that really did feel better than the usual g-spot vibrations! It's a toy that requires some experimentation.
Breaking Down the Packaging of the Fun Factory Sundaze
The Fun Factory Sundaze's packaging certainly feels special (and for the price, I would expect nothing less!). There's an outer cardboard sleeve with a picture of the product and other information, and inside is a gold cardboard box that feels just like a gift box! Open the box and you'll be greeted with a manual on what the Sundaze does and how, a gold storage bag made from water-resistant Tyvek®, a USB charging cable and, of course, the Sundaze, wrapped up in plastic and those little nets they put on fancy fruit.
Materials and care of the Fun Factory Sundaze
The Fun Factory Sundaze is made from silicone and ABS plastic, which are both non-porous and body-safe materials. It's also completely waterproof, which makes cleaning this toy super easy. Just use some warm water and mild, unscented soap and lather it up, making sure to get into the crevice where the two materials meet. Then rinse off the soap and leave to dry before storing it in its pouch.
Does the Sundaze Really Stimulate 3 Different Nerve Endings? I don’t claim to be a scientist, but I did take a cool class on pain perception during my Psychology degree (accidental humble brag, sorry). In that class, we talked a lot about nerve endings and touch receptors, so I was intrigued by Fun Factory’s claims that the 3 different modes of the Sundaze can stimulate the Merkel’s Discs, Pacinian Corpuscles and Ruffini Endings. These are different nerve endings that respond to different kinds of touch, but some alarm bells were set off in my head because… the vagina is generally not thought to respond to touch, just pressure. I did some googling and read a paper or two, and found that there are no Pacinian Corpuscles inside the vagina, and there’s debate whether the other types exist there or not. Plus, Merkel’s Discs don’t respond to light touch, as they say, but to sustained pressure. I won’t bore you with all the details, but I am disappointed that Fun Factory seem to be misleading its customers this way. I don’t know if it’s intentional or just a lack of research, but, either way, not so cool.

I truthfully can't tell you whether or not you'll enjoy the Fun Factory Sundaze or not. That's not code for anything — this toy has very polarized reviews that either claim it to be the best toy ever or a total waste of money! What it offers is very different from most other vibrators, and it will require you to take some time to figure out how it might work for you, as well as adapt to taking the scenic route to an orgasm. I did have some really nice experiences with the Sundaze, but it's definitely not something I would reach for if I was just looking for a quickie. If you're curious, though, and have the budget for an investment like this, then it could be worth trying out.

Fun Factory Sundaze vs. Fun Factory Stronic RealThe Fun Factory Sundaze and the Fun Factory Stronic Real are both high-quality G-spot vibrators with slightly different features. The Stronic Real is more of a thrusting dildo, whereas the Fun Factory Sundaze provides unique tapping and pulsating motion that might feel like gentle thrusting. When it comes to performance, the Fun Factory Stronic Real got an impressive overall score of 4.8/5.0, noticeably surpassing the Sundaze’s 4.0/5.0. The Stronic Real also got higher Bedbible ratings at a perfect 5.0/5.0 compared to Sundaze’s 4.2/5.0. Design-wise, Stronic Real’s more realistic dildo-like design scored a high 100/100, leaving the Sundaze trailing behind at 85/100. The Fun Factory Sundaze offers 3 vibration modes and other features like 3 tapping and 5 pulsating thrust modes, the Stronic Real brings to the table 7 speeds & 3 patterns of thrusting and vibration. Power-wise the Stronic Real’s vibrations are weaker and buzzier, scoring a low 20/100 compared to the Fun Factory Sundaze’s power score of 40/100. When it comes to size, the Fun Factory Stronic Real is slightly longer, offering 5.5 inches of insertable length, whereas the Fun Factory Sundaze has an insertable length of 4 inches. Both have the same diameter of 1.4 meaning they are suitable for beginners and more advanced users like-wise. In conclusion, the Fun Factory Sundaze is a great gentle G-spot vibrator that is perfect for those who want to explore different types of stimulation, whereas the Fun Factory Stronic will please those, who are after the pulsating/thrusting sensations.
Fun Factory Sundaze vs. Tenga Iroha MaiThe Tenga Iroha Mai and the Fun Factory Sundaze both feature unique stimulation modes; the Sundaze provides a variety of tapping, pulsations, and vibrations, whereas the Iroha Mai features an innovative Hapic WAVE technology, which feels like tapping, thrumming, and pulsing. The Tenga Iroha Mai is one of the lowest-rated products in this comparison in terms of Bedbible rating and power. The Sundaze scored a Bedbible rating of 4.2 / 5.0, whereas the Tenga Iroha Mai got 3.0/5.0. On the other hand, in the design arena, the Iroha Mai shines brilliantly with 97/100, just ahead of the Sundaze’s 85/100. However, when it comes to power, the Tenga Iroha Mai was rated as a much weaker and buzzier vibrator, receiving a power score of 20/100, compared to Fun Factory Sundaze’s 40/100. When it comes to size, both are very similar, they have an insertable length of 4 inches and are very close in diameter. Overall, both products provide unique stimulation, but the Fun Factory Sundaze is better when it comes to functionality, whereas the Tenga Iroha Mai shines looks-wise.
Fun Factory Sundaze vs. Fun Factory Bi-Stronic FusionThe Fun Factory Bi-Stronic Fusion is a pulsating rabbit vibrator that offers simultaneous internal and external stimulation, whereas the Fun Factory Sundaze is all about the G-spot. When you pit the Fun Factory Sundaze against the Bi-Stronic Fusion, it’s a tight competition. Sundaze has an overall score of 4.0/5.0, which the Bi Stronic Fusion slightly trumps with a 3.5/5.0. In terms of Bedbible ratings, both tie at 3.5/5.0. Design-wise, the Sundaze takes the lead with 85/100 compared to Bi Stronic Fusion’s 70/100. In terms of size, the Bi Stronic Fusion is lengthier, providing a deeper reach. Power-wise the Fun Factory Bi-Stronic Fusion is one of the most powerful stimulations in this comparison, it scored 60/100 in power ratings, and its vibrations and deeper and rumblier than the Fun Factory Sundaze. On top of that, the Bi-Stronic Fusion offers 6 vibration patterns and 8 pulsating modes, compared to Sundaze’s 3 tapping modes and 5 pulsating modes. So, if you are looking for a dual-stimulating pulsating vibrator, the Fun Factory Bi-Stronic Fusion is the one for you, and if you prefer a gentler G-spot stimulation, or you are not a fan of rabbits, then stick with Fun Factory Sundaze.
Fun Factory Sundaze vs. Lovense GravityLovense Gravity is one of the best thrusting vibrators on the market. It’s the highest-rated alternative in this comparison, but keep in mind that this type of stimulation might be too intense for some users. While Sundaze holds an overall score of 4.0/5.0, Gravity steals the show with a perfect 5.0/5.0. The Bedbible rating gave Gravity a top-notch 5.0/5.0 over Sundaze’s 4.2/5.0. In the design arena, Gravity dazzles with a score of 95/100, edging out Sundaze’s 85/100. Size-wise, the Gravity has a slightly longer insertable length of 5.12 inches compared to Sundaze’s 4 inches. And on top of powerful vibrations and thrusting the Lovense Gravity has a mobile app that gives you extra control and long-distance play. So, if you are looking for a gentle G-spot vibrator with a variety of different types of stimulation, the Fun Factory Sundaze will be a perfect choice, but if you prefer a more powerful thrusting dildo with app connectivity, the Lovense Gravity might be a more suitable choice!
How to use Fun Factory Sundaze
Before using the Sundaze, I recommend applying a generous amount of lube to both the toy and yourself. Since the silicone feels a little rough and grippy, lube will help everything slide smoothly and feel way nicer! Stick with a water-based lube to avoid damaging the silicone. Play around with the settings and find what feels good to you, and remember that you can save your favorite setting by holding down the 'Fun Factory' button for 2 seconds, until you hear 2 beeps.
