Fun Factory has always had a unique and light-hearted design ethic that I really like. Maybe it’s our shared German heritage, but the smooth, round lines and bright colors are a reminder that sex toys are meant to be fun. Recently, they’ve been moving toward waterproof, rechargeable vibes of a more premium quality. Although I miss their old mid-range items, I have to say that it’s really nice having waterproof rechargeable products from them with the same thumpy, hearty vibration as always. The Yooo, by Fun Factory, is definitely unique in a surprisingly functional way. I’ve been calling mine “Bubbles,” but that doesn’t really do it justice. Anyway, check out the video and see for yourself what makes this one special.
- Toy: Yooo (sent by Babeland.com for review)
- Type: Rechargeable vibrator, outtie, waterproof
- Manufacturer: Fun Factory
- Material: Silicone and plastic
- Price: $119
- SMT rating: N/A (Would be an SMT 1 if it were an innie; multiple levels of vibrations and throbby pulsation modes. Has 2 vibrators inside, making it even stronger)
The Yooo is a pleasantly shaped outtie vibrator made of three bubbly spheres. It’s about 4.75″ long and 2.5″ wide, and is made from silicone and ABS plastic. Like most Fun Factory toys, it’s rechargeable, and its charger uses magnets to attach to the toy. Since this means there isn’t any sort of hole for a cord to go in, the Yooo is entirely waterproof. It has two motors inside, and has strong, thumpy vibrations, particularly on its higher pulsation settings. Besides the usual “Plus” and “Minus” buttons to control the speed and setting, the Yooo also has a “Turbo” button that, when pressed, sends the toy into a high, strong vibration for when you need that extra little kick to push you over the edge. The button area is backlit and seems to light up even when merely jostled (instead of only when a button is pressed), which is cute and makes it easy to find the buttons even in the dark. The Yooo is an outtie-only vibrator, meant to stimulate the clitoris, vaginal opening, labia, or even the penis and scrotum in your life. It shouldn’t be used as an innie vibrator, but it’s excellent for what it’s meant to do!
Since it’s Fun Factory, it goes without saying that the Yooo is high-quality and has captured my heart. It’s cute and non-intimidating and comes in a variety of adorable colors. The bulbous shape makes it easy to grip, even for those with poor hand strength. Its shape lends itself equally well to stimulating a clitoris as stroking up and down a penis. It has lots of strong levels of vibration, and all the pulsation settings are pleasantly strong. The Turbo button is an excellent additional touch that other toy manufacturers could learn from.
I have very few complaints about the Yooo. Foremost would be that the buttons are all small and a bit hard to press, especially the Minus button. For those who are visually disabled, if you can’t see the magnetic charging attachment light up when correctly aligned with the toy, it may be difficult to tell when the toy is charging correctly and when it is fully charged. Finally, it’s disappointing that the Yooo isn’t being marketed toward men as well as women, because it makes a perfectly enjoyable boy toy!
Overall, the Yooo is yet another well-made, interesting and original toy from Fun Factory that is high-quality and enjoyable.
