A friend recently called me so excited to tell me that after years of waiting, debating, hemming and hawing she had FINALLY bought a Magic Wand! She was so excited to get it home and try it. I was just as excited until she started telling me some details: She had gotten a really great price AND it was purple AND the control was a dial!
Cue the sad trombone.
My friend had made a sadly common mistake – she had fallen for folks using the phrase “Magic Wand” to refer to any wand style vibrator, like how many of us say “Kleenex” when we mean “tissue” or “Xerox” when we mean “photocopy”. Consequently my friend, who went in wanting the wand she had heard me raving about for years ended up with something else entirely.
How can you avoid this? Well, we’ve talked before about spotting counterfeit Magic Wands which can get tricky, and the good news is what we’re talking about today is WAY easier! If you are in a shop and someone is saying “Magic Wand” to you, make sure the toy you are looking at is white – this legendary massager doesn’t come in colors! – look for the blue switch plate on the corded version and blue buttons on the rechargeable Magic Wand. Also, look at those controls! The genuine Magic Wand features a rocker switch on the corded version and blue rectangular buttons on the Magic Wand Rechargeable – no dials!
Now, go forth and find your genuine Magic Wand! There are some great retailers listed on this page to make it even easier.
