The Mini Wanachi is a cheap wand style clitoral vibe. The 8″ by 1″ toy has a flexible silicone head and plastic handle and operates with a twist on control at the base that gradually increases the strength of its vibrations from moderate to strong. At its lowest speed the vibration sound is pretty quiet but gets louder when you turn it all the way up, but it is still relatively quiet compared to a lot of other wand style vibes. The Mini Wanachi runs on 2 AA batteries, and if you take them out in between uses they last a very long time. The toy is also waterproof, and although many toys that claim to be waterproof actually aren’t, I would consider this one truly waterproof because I actually put it through my dishwasher (without soap) and it survived and has still worked over a year later. I wouldn’t recommend trying that though because I can’t vouch that it will always work (plus it isn’t necessary.) This toy comes in a variety of colors including black, white, blue, pink, and purple. The price varies depending on where you purchase it, mine was $24.99 at a toy boutique (it is cheaper online), but I would still consider that a steal considering how long it has lasted.
This toy is marketed as a “body massager”, but considering its small size it is actually more ideal as a clitoral vibrator. I like that it is strong enough that I can use it over my panties if I don’t have a lot of time or want to avoid getting messy, but it isn’t so strong that I feel like orgasming immediately (like with the Hitachi.) The toy doesn’t come with any programmed functions or pulsations, but I easily create my own by twisting the control back and forth from low to high rapidly or slowly. This toy is also easily used during sex because of its long handle and flexible head.
Cleaning this toy is easy; I use soap and water, but you can use toy cleaner if you want (just make sure it doesn’t contain alcohol.) The package and toy details online both say the head is silicone, but it doesn’t feel the same as the high quality silicone on some of my other toys (such as Lelos). This doesn’t really bother me though me considering I only use this toy externally. Both of the Wanachi’s materials (silicone and ABS plastic) are phthalate free, body safe, and non porous.
I recommend the Mini Wanachi if you’re looking for a cheap clitoral toy because it’s inexpensive yet powerful and long-lasting. The petite toy is great for travel, and its hygienic materials make it low maintenance and easy to clean. As with any other toy, I recommend taking the batteries out in between uses to increase the life of the toy and the batteries. Since the toy’s head is made of silicone, only use water based lubes with it. Also, if you are going to use it in water, make sure the battery compartment is screwed on tightly.
