Paul Harris Presents Wings by Matthew Mello
A stunning visual card trick that will leave your audience gob smacked. The angel on the back of the card actually flaps its wings! An odd and beautiful sight.
You show the two little angels printed on the back of your playing card. Separated from each other for almost forever..each angel at opposite ends of the card.. trapped in their dried ink loneliness.
But then, a kindly spectator blows them a kiss. There's a moment of stillness...then the angel starts FLAPPING ITS WINGS! Yep..the two little angel wings seem to be FLUTTERING UP AND DOWN..yet never lifting off the flat surface of the card. An odd beautiful sight indeed. Are those wings really flapping? Are you seeing what you think you're seeing? Is this some weird angelic optical delusion? Is that really your audience giggling with delight?
A moment later the animated angel is GONE!. There's just a BLANK SPACE at the top of the card. Perhaps the angel has flown to the kindly spectator's ear to whisper "thank you"? But then the angel REAPPEARS back on the card...right NEXT TO THE OTHER ANGEL! Our two angel buddies together at last! (And yes..you can let your spectator keep the special angelic souvenir).
WINGS provides you with a fun, compelling emotional hook..and THREE distinct moments of astonishment: The wings ANIMATE..the angel VANISHES...the angel REAPPEARS next to its long lost angel buddy.

- From MagicReviewed.com:
For $35 you get an incredible visual effect, a well made gimmick, six "give away" cards, a deck of Mandolin Back playing cards, and an excellent instructional DVD
Products like this make me very happy. First, you see the trailer and think . . . no way . . . it's gotta be some ridiculously complex gimmick that isn't practical. Then the product arrives and holy cow was I wrong. I love that! The effect looks exactly like the video trailer shows. The ad copy is 100%. The animated illusion of the wings flapping is beautiful. The gimmick is hand made and easy to use.
If you choose to have the card signed and given out as a souvenir, you can do that six times before having to purchase refills.
I have nothing bad to say about this product. If you like the effect, then you'll be very happy with your purchase. The price is excellent considering all that you're getting. If you think you'd perform a trick like this, you're right. It's super simple to do, and the instructions and additional handling ideas are superb.
I cannot recommend this highly enough.
