I had the opportunity to interview Laura Von Der Brelie, Fun Factory’s Sales Manager of the Asian and Australian market at the 2017 ARexpo in Sydney, Australia. Laura Von Der Brelie is only 26 years old and has worked for Fun Factory for 2.5 years in Germany. She is the face of Fun Factory and spends much of her time traveling to meet up with members of the adult lifestyle industry to talk about her award winning brand. Fun Factory is one of Adultsmart’s and Oh Zone Adult Lifestyle Centre’s bestselling brands due to their product’s design, motors, high quality and reliability which can be seen through our numerous sex toy reviews. Laura said:
“It’s great to work in a challenging industry which is about more than sex, fun and adult movies. Fun Factory offers a lifestyle product. These days society is more open minded. Recently our brand visibility within Australia grew immensely and it is our goal to grow on from there.”
When asked about what inspired the establishment of the company Laura explained:
“We value fun, passion, performance and quality which can be seen through our special designs. 20 years ago Fun Factory wanted sex toys to be colourful and made out of medical grade silicone. Back then everything was made in a plastic material that was not body safe. Everything was made in flesh tones.”
When asked about what she loves most about Fun Factory, Laura’s smile filled the room and she made a gesture towards her face.
“I love that they authentically create the product’s right next to the office building. I know the faces of the people who are constructing the products. People often don’t believe me when I tell them that I can see them through the glass but we operate right next to them in Bremen, Germany.”
It is refreshing to hear how important this was to her. Fun Factory adult lifestyle products are made and designed in Germany. Afterwards they are than imported over into Australia. Everything is made with hand poured, medical grade, 100% body safe silicone. The care they instill into each and every product they make is what sets them apart from their competitors. The silicone is silky, smooth with a matte finish. Their sex toys are slightly flexible to gently work with the contours of the natural body.
“Fun Factory has a Stronic range which is made with patented Drive Technology. They are pulsators not vibrators.”
The Fun Factory Stronic range is made differently from the standard vibrator that uses a weighted turning engine. This technology features an ergonomically designed sex toy that automatically moves back and forth in a natural thrusting motion. They have 10 rumbling, stimulation levels including low speed rhythms to something which is powerfully pleasurable. The Stronic range include the Fun Factory Bi Stronic Fusion, Stronic Drei, and Stronic Eins.
“Our best sellers include the Tiger and the Big Boss which are products of the latest vibrator generation that come in bright colours and are available in Fun Factory’s Black Line. “
The recently released Fun Factory Black Line includes some of their bestselling products including the Laya II Miss Bi, Tiger and Big Boss. This line differs from it’s usual colourful range with a sleek statement that exudes luxury. Big Boss is a phallic shaped vibrator that measures 9″ in total length, has a 7″ insertable length and is 2″ in girth. Tiger is a rabbit vibrator that measures 8.5” in total length, 6” insertable length and is 4 ¾” in girth. It features pronounced ribs along the shaft and base. It can be used for vagina or anal play. Both sex toys have 6 vibration rhythms and 6 vibration intensities.
“I love the Miss Bi!”
Miss Bi a waterproof rabbit vibrator with a 3″ insertable length and 1.5″ girth. It has two independent motors, one is placed at the base of the clitoral arm and another placed within the shaft. The vibrations are extremely powerful, deep and rumbling which are sent throughout the whole sex toy. It has 6 vibration intensities, 3 on each motor and 6 vibration modes.
I asked Laura what quotes and role models inspired her successful career she said:
“My favourite quote is by Walt Disney who said “If you can dream it, you can do it”. This quote is my motivation, I gained by doing a hobby I love. I am dancing in a first league Latin dance team for years and there I learned to hold on on what you believe in, to break barriers, to leave your comfort zone and to reach for new goals. I don’t have any specific role models except my parents of course but in general I really look up to those people who know how to work in a team and to motivate people and those who just make it a happy day just by their presence.”
