At FUN FACTORY, we are pioneers in playfulness. For over twenty years, we’ve created toys that inspire sexual exploration — and we make them well, so your mind is free to focus on FUN. Our products are responsibly manufactured in Germany, with fair labor practices and a tiny carbon footprint, because we know that ethics are sexy.

In 1996, recent engineering grads Dirk Bauer and Michael Pahl sat down at Dirk’s kitchen table with a sketch pad and some Play-Doh to design the first ever body-safe, non-phallic, harness-compatible dildo: PADDY PENGUIN. (No prizes for guessing the shape.)

If you didn’t go to adult stores in the early nineties, believe us: the landscape was dire. Imagine piles of beige, realistic dildos made of mystery rubber, each giving off a chemical smell. If that wasn’t your jam, you didn’t have a lot of options. Dirk and Michael decided that they could do a lot better — and so, FUN FACTORY was born.

Since then, we’ve moved from a kitchen table to an eco-friendly, fair labor factory in Bremen, Germany that creates toys for bedrooms all around the world.

The German Difference

Throughout all the changes, we’ve kept the same principles front and center: making the best toys for actual people’s actual bodies and desires, regardless of trends. We’re about trust, exploration, and of course, FUN.
