Purchase: vibrating Harry Potter broom

Himself is pointing the vibrating Harry Potter broom at me and "firing" it. The sound is obnoxious and makes me feel slightly guilty that it's going to my 12-year-old sister for Christmas, but my mom will get even with me later.

That is all.

maybe you could use the vibrating broom for something fun. *grins*

But it's not my type. It's just not... adjustable enough. I like my toys to have some ability to modulate speed/intensity. This one makes noises, too. Eee!

When I first ever heard of the vibrating brooms, I thought it was a joke. I didn't realize they were real. But they are the #1 gift for girls between 11 and 13. Of course they are. They vibrate.

Feeling awkward. : /

The initial reviews on Amazon.com were hysterical... too bad they've been deleted since. They were priceless.

But yes, I bought one because I found it at Big Lots for less than half retail and then thought, hey, this would be funny to give to the little sister. My family sent Laurel the mechanized "walking" horses I left at my parents because Laurel would just turn them on and leave them on their side until the noise drove me nuts, so touche! Yeah. I love clearance toys, but Laurel doesn't need anything with batteries yet.

I think I'm at the point where I need something gas-powered - I'm tired of using up batteries!

Well, you could buy one that plugs into the wall...

Good electric vibes run a fair bit more than battery ones, but in my experience, they last longer.

Offhand, the two major models you'll see are the Hitachi Magic Wand ($50-ish) and the Wahl Coil (low-to-mid $30s). The Good Vibrations catalog lists two other models -- the Acuvibe and Dr. Scholl's Deluxe Wand -- that look like they can be used cordless as well, but I'm not familiar with either model.

I have not one, but two, vibrating Harry Potter brooms in my house. Man, were they a b#%*% to wrap in foil paper last Xmas.

Big Lots kicks ass.
