A staple for sex toys in the UK, LoveHoney have put together this Classic Magic Wand Vibrator and have also been bringing us budget (though not necessarily lesser) versions of our favourite brands for many years now.
But how will their take on the recently-departed Hitachi magic wand go down?

Shape and Style
One look at this offering from LoveHoney will tell you that this particular wand was made with Hitachi in mind.
At quite a lengthy 13 inches, this toy is pretty near to the original specifications of the Hitachi.
Additionally, it has a rather girthy base diameter of 2.4 inches.
The wand itself is plastic, though the head is firm but soft.
The neck of the wand is made with flexibility in mind allowing the user to tilt the head of the wand against the desired area.
The most interesting thing about the design of this toy is, however, the scroll wheel LoveHoney adopts rather than the traditional push-button design.
There is a downside to this.
The handle is not ergonomically designed so can be quite slippery when using with lubricant or during particularly…clammy moments!
This can also apply to the wheel.
Use with caution or you may find yourself zooming from naught to sixty in three seconds!
Power and Vibrations
LoveHoney have put a lot of effort into making this particular wand more accessible to those of us who like powerful toys and others who prefer a lower, teasing setting to our massagers.
This seems like quite a tall order in such a physically imposing toy.
So, how do LoveHoney incorporate this amount of variety into their speed settings?
The scroll wheel.
Easily accessible in the middle of the handle, the scroll wheel is easily manipulated during play.
You can switch from a high to a low speed with simply by moving the wheel.
Let’s see how these users found the this feature in their reviews:
All reviews sourced here.
As usual, LoveHoney more than hits the spot in this particular category.
Given the sheer range of this toy, it is definitely recommended for newbies and wand-pros alike.
The simple, easy to use design and simplicity of the controls make this toy more accessible to newbies than most.
This toy is also a sleek £54.99 – a far less risky gamble than many of its competitors for any newbie to consider.
Furthermore, there are no fiddly battery compartments to check or recharge sockets to search for.
In fact, LoveHoney has an entire range of these little magic wands so if this one seems a little more than you can handle, feel free to browse the website for other alternatives.
Power and Discretion
This toy is mains-powered, meaning it is attached to a lead and does need to be plugged into a mains socket at all times in order to be used. This might seem slightly limiting, but when you’d be hard pressed to find a battery-powered alternative which can match this particular wand in terms of the power and consistency of its vibrations.
Furthermore, you’d be less likely to find a wand of the same calibre without a lead.
In terms of discretion, this wand is not one to use when sharing a house or in a house with particularly thin walls.
Many reviewers agree that while this toy is one of the most pleasurable it is far from the most quiet.
Materials and cleaning
This toy is not waterproof, therefore should be cleaned with a damp cloth after use and should not be submerged.
Please do not take this or any other mains-powered toy into the shower or the bath with you.
The toy is plastic and contains no phthalates or latex for those with allergies.
LoveHoney seem to have delivered an affordable, easy to use alternative not only to the Hitachi, but to many other brands out there on the market.
Simple, affordable and effective. What’s more, with over 700 reviews and average score of 4.5 stars on the LoveHoney website, this toy is more of a safe bet than a real gamble.
Try it for yourself.
