While the Hitachi may have been the original wand massager (read our review here), due to its popularity there are now countless alternatives. Some good…some not so much.
We’ve done some research and…let’s say…testing…
And came up with a few recommendations for alternatives to the original Hitachi magic wand vibrator that can still get the job done.
1. Adam & Eve Magic Massager
For our first alternative, we are going to stick with one of our preferred vendors: Adam & Eve. It’s obviously wonderful that they provide 25% off orders for our readers, but more importantly, they’re a legit, reliable business that sells legit, reliable products.
Coincidentally, even though they’re our preferred supplier of the original magic wand, they have a wand of their own that’s top-notch (perhaps one that is even better than the original).
The basic Adam & Eve massager quite resembles the Hitachi in both appearance and functionality. It has the same essential design (with the biggest difference being the red color as opposed to the blue) and also has dual speeds.
If you’re looking for the alternative that most closely resembles the original wand, this is the option to go for.
Adam & Eve have sold over 125,000 of these, receiving extremely high reviews.
2. Adam & Eve Magic Massager – Deluxe 8x
If you’d like to go for an upgraded version, however, Adam & Eve have a “Deluxe 8x” massager model.
While the design is very similar to both the basic Adam & Eve massager and the original Hitachi massager, the functionality is certainly quite different.
Rather than a dual-mode setting, this deluxe edition massager has 8 vibration modes. That’s 4 time the fun :).
This is really the best vibrator on the market if you are looking for a wand-style vibrator. It has all of the benefits of the original, but more flexibility and options in terms of vibration modes.
It also has a ridiculous amount of reviews from some very, very satisfied customers.
3. Lulu 7+ Wand Massager
For the next alternative wand vibrator, we’re going to head on over to Amazon and take a look at the Lulu 7+ Personal Wand Massager.
There’s a lot to be said about packing a lot into a small package. This mini wand massager is powerful, made of great-feeling silicone, and has several speed options and 5 intensity levels.
For convenience, it offers USB charging, is a cordless vibrator (so you don’t have to be near an outlet), and actually remembers your last setting…in case your’e in a hurry.
This little vibrator packs a ton of convenience…and more importantly…power!
While the original Hitachi wand has been called the “Rolls Royce” of vibrators, one Amazon reviewer called the Lulu vibrator the “Ferrari” of vibrators.
Plus, this comes in a few different colors, so you aren’t limited to just one design.
This is an absolutely wonderful alternative if you’re seeking one, and you can pick one up on Amazon here >>
4. Shibari Mini Halo Wand Massager
Rounding out our list of alternatives to the original Hitachi magic wand is the Shibari Mini Halo wand vibrator.
While Shibari does have the “My Wand” model that more closely resembles Hitachi’s original wand, we decided to pick this one as an alternative for a few reasons.
This is just different enough – both in terms of design and in terms of functionality – to make it a great alternative (after all, if you’re looking for an alternative you’re likely looking for something a bit different, right?).
The size and design of this vibrator more closely resembles the Lulu 7+ than the original Hitachi wand. It’s similarly on the smaller side, and has some convenient features like USB charging.
Here’s the thing that sets the Shibari Mini Halo apart: it has 20 different vibration functions! That makes this one the most versatile of the bunch that we’ve listed here. Of course, most of you wont’ need 20 different variations, you’ll likely hone in a one or a couple that you absolutely love (that being said, having 20 to explore gives you a bigger variety to choose from and find the settings you really enjoy).
We’ve come a long way since the original magic wand has launched. There are plenty of options out there for you to test out to see which one best suits your needs.
