They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but that only goes so far when it comes to quality, safety, and satisfaction. As the world’s best selling massage wand, the Magic Wand has seen more than its fair share of imposters. And, while we will always welcome and invite fair competition, we’re not so keen on identity theft.
So, to protect you from lackluster – and potentially harmful – look-a-likes, we work tirelessly to eliminate true counterfeits from the market. However, please remember: buyer beware!
Our first suggestion – make sure you trust the source. Online shopping is great, and that includes marketplaces like Amazon that feature many authorized Magic Wand retailers. But, they can also be home to fakes. Here are some things that should raise red flags:
- Price – if it seems too good to be true, it probably is. While pricing varies online, the real thing will always be within a reasonable range. Compare prices with other sellers to get a sense for what you’re looking at before you click ‘buy.’
- Packaging – look for photos of packaging. Our current packaging is pictured on the left. Anything else should be a warning sign.
- Brand Name – counterfeit sellers will frequently use the words “Magic” and “Wand” within their listings to trick search engines – and consumers. Authentic Magic Wands will always have the Magic Wand logo and the circle ® mark indicating the brand’s registered trademark.
- Physical Features – Authentic Magic Wands always have a white handle and body, blue neck, and white head. See additional photos on the left for details from each model.
Counterfeit Magic Wands may sadly even look just like the real thing, but they are often built using inferior – possibly unsafe – components. Additionally, many fakes use motors that are not nearly as powerful or reliable as ours. This leads to disappointing experiences, and no one wants that!
If you ever have questions about a product’s authenticity or would like to report a possible counterfeit, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
