VINTAGE VIBRATOR MUSEUM


Modern Classics
Many of our antique vibrators have modern equivalents. These contemporary classics are among the most popular vibrators of today. Check out the comparisons below to see what vibrator types have remained the strongest, most purchased, or best-designed!
  • Known as "the Cadillac of Vibrators," the Hitachi Magic Wand first appeared on the North American market in the 1970s, and is perhaps the world's most popular vibrating sex toy. Like the vintage Norelco Massager, the Hitachi Magic Wand is marketed as a massager, and is loved for its long, wand-style handle and powerful vibration.

  • With seven attachments and two speeds, the Wahl 7-in-1 is truly a classic-style vibrator. This coil-operated wonder-design hasn't changed much in the last 50 years. The Wahl vibrators are/were lighter, faster, and quieter than most other electrical vibrators. Like the vintage Wahl Hand-E, the Wahl 7-in-1 vibrator is known for its fast, focused vibration and massage-centered marketing.

  • The Minna Ola is the first vibrator to use grip feedback technology as the primary method of control. Ola responds to and copies the squeeze pressure and pattern of the user's hand, providing an intuitive user experience designed for either internal or external use. While not as technologically advanced, the Niagara Hand Unit (c. 1965-1976) also offered the possibility of internal and/or external stimulation, and was meant to be intuitive in its use. The Niagara Hand Unit's controls were simple and located on the cord, where adjustment would not interrupt application.

  • Similar to vintage barbershop vibrators, the Fukuoku 9000 provides a stimulating buzz by fitting over the user's finger for enhanced manual massage. Once the tiniest vibrator in the world, the Fukuoko 9000 has three different silicone sleeve attachments for subtle variations in sensation. Unlike the tiny Fukuoku, the Oster Stim-U-Lax for Barbers (c. 1948) has a relatively large, heavy motor that straps to the back of the user's hand. The strong vibrations are transmitted through the hand, down the fingers, and onto the scalp (or other body part).

  • The colorful Mini Pink Leopard Vibe is a pocket-sized, waterproof version of the classic slimline style. This simple, streamlined style was designed for internal use, and was one of the first to be marketed openly as a sex toy. The Mini Pink Leopard Vibe and the vintage Personal Vibrator both show the iconic slimline shape that many folks think of when they hear the word "vibrator."

  • The Vibra Slim (c. 1960) is essentially a firm, contoured block that vibrates as the user sits or lays across it. Simple, easy, and strong, this classic is similar to many modern sex toys and furniture, including the Liberator Pulse; this ingenious piece of sex furniture allows one to position a dildo or vibrator in a secure toy mount, then ride it hands-free for perfectly customized pleasure.

  • The powerful, waterproof G-Ki vibrator features an adjustable curve intended to customize the vibrator's shape, and help stimulate the user's G-spot. While the G-Ki and the vintage Handy Hannah (c. 1950) vibrator have little technology in common, they share an aspiration to customize the experience and empower the user. The Handy Hannah vibrator was among the first to become popular as a consumer good, putting the power of the personal into the homes and hands of users.
