Electric toothbrushes that just "buzz" (instead of twisting and turning the head) contain pager motors as well. Or you can make one - and motor with an off-centre weight will vibrate, and if the motor is large, you just make a large bristlebot. I have seen video of one large enough to carry an adult. It was Japanese.
