We bought a few of these for my son and his friends. They are brilliant and can be used again and again
Classic prop glasses. We have already had lots of fun with them. :-)
Very funny and great for my son to prank his dad
We love this trick! It's so easy to do, very effective and a really good price too.
Have been using Magic By Post (or Matchrite the Funny Business - the company name we used to write our cheques out to - and post to Winchester Road) for more than 30 years. Always happy to get my magic from them.
The trick itself is surprisingly simple and very well made. Comes with the little padlock (which are surprisingly hard to find - one the right size anyway). Would highly recommend - hence 5* review.
I did magically professionally in my teens and early twenties and then turned to other pursuits. Now, some thirty years later, I have returned to magic. I missed it. So much has changed in the age of the internet with so much more information on techniques, presentations and new slights out there. I performed Wild Card all the time back in the day, when I was working at a small magic shop and performing, and it was always a crowd pleaser. I was very excited to see that it is still around. I have been practicing non-stop on my new routine and introducing new handlings which I have seen across the internet.
My one complaint about the Bicycle Deck Wild Card is that they all seem to be the same combination of cards for the trick (I received two decks from different vendors and then checked with others as well as online videos, and they all seem to be the same). I always used to carry three packets with me with different combinations so that I could perform the trick in the same room to different onlookers without everyone thinking I was redoing something I had already done (with a different presentation and handling). I wish there were an assortment with these packets.
Nonetheless, the cards are good quality and I am sure will last much longer than the old waxed nondescript playing cards of which my packets were made. I also appreciated the instruction packet that came with the cards and gave me some ideas for different routines and handlings.
Yes my copy has 116 pages,more like a book.It contains a lot of photos of magicians and tricks with diagrams.When you think of magic today,a lot of the tricks and idea's come from older books or magazines,the masters of magic.
Unlike the dove pan which can only make items appear,the Magical Candy Box,can make items appear,then the same items can disappear if you want to.Great if one is a Children's Entertainer,with sweets appearing.On the back of the instruction leaflet,there are ten ideas,I am sure with a little imagination you will think of a lot more..
It is a very light hearted read.Yes 100's of Catchy Business Names and Slogans.I look forward to volume 2 in the near future.
It certainly is a good read,very interesting booklet.
These booklets are a very good read on different aspects of magic.
Yes great value,three good card tricks,12 Amazing Tricks You Can Do Booklet,plus a 10% Voucher off you next order.
The magician gets it wrong four times,surely not,but glad to say it all turns right in the end.Good running gag.Easy to do.
Cards in Air,comes with a full deck of Bicycle cards and gimmicks and full instructions,what great value.Good trick.
A fine series of good entertaining gags for your magical prediction..Good effect.
