I built one by breaking apart one of those vibrating toothbrushes. Not the expensive kind but the $5 each kind made by Colgate and Crest and Oral B and other guys.

You just have to work a little harder and be a little more careful as getting it out requires some pliers and tearing of the plastic.

Your local electronics surplus store is often a good place to look for small motors. Also, dead cellphones are relatively common and you can take the vibrating motor (and other good parts) out and use it. Yes, motorized toothbrushes are also a good source. eBay is a place to look for larger quantities; you'll want to use search terms like pager motor or cell phone motor.
