Toy Review: Iris by Lelo

The last time I was looking to purchase a vibe I decided to try one that was a little more expensive. Lelo is a Swiss company that makes higher end toys and I was very impressed with what I found at their site. There are a lot of places online where you can find resellers offering Lelo toys at a reduced price so use the Lelo site to learn about the toys and then if you find one you like, do a search to find other distributors who are selling it.

I decided on the Iris. It was the shape and size that I was looking for and, like all the toys made by Iris, it is made of a super soft phthalate-free silicone. I had been disappointed in a previous toy for it’s texture and the smell of the chemicals in the product so I was looking for something that wouldn’t be a compromise in that area.

When I first opened the package I felt like I was opening something special. I had received other toys that had pictures of other women on the packaging and this one was a simple white box with color accents in the Iris color I had chosen. Inside the packaging, was a black box with the toy inside in a black satin sleeve. I still store the toy in that sleeve and black box after I have washed and dried it.

I like that the Iris has a rechargeable battery that allows you to use it without a cord and that it stays charged for a long time. It vibrates in 5 different modes and a variety of intensities. It feels so soft and is contoured in a way that feels natural for my body. I love that it is a very quiet toy and that it has a safety lock on it so that it won’t accidentally turn on, which are both problems I have encounter previously.

There are quite a number of nice looking toys at the Lelo site including the Bo and Lily so feel free to peruse the site for what interests you. For people who have more money than they know what to do with, there are even gold-plated toys. 🙂

Given that I was able to purchase my Iris for about $75 and for all it’s benefits that I have described I give the Iris by Lelo 4 1/2 peppers. The only deterrent for me is the price so the rating is reduced for that reason as you may not be able to find a Lelo toy in a price range that fits your budget.


  1. Wow, sounds like a good one!

  2. Lelo is a very nice, well made vibrator! As a store owner I can be confident in the Lelo products and know that my customers will be happy with the vibrator they have purchased for a long time. The Lelo products are made wtih quality and the best part is that they are 100% free of phthalates!

  3. I found this on amazon today ranging from $59 to $79 depending on color
