Breathtaking Quality!

Ok so it is clear by now that the Magic Wagon guys are serious about quality props. This is probably the single finest piece of magic woodwork I have ever seen. It is that good! The finish, the lines, the inlay, the velvety lining, the snugness and fine tolerances of the whole unit is just breathtaking!

Everything about this screams high end quality. The effect might be as old as the hills and you grandmother may well guess the method, but to lay people the effect is stunning.

And for Collector’s what a huge treat you are in for, you will not be able to find a finer piece of "furniture" to fill your magic den with and each of the pieces in this line are just so much better than amost anything being produced today.

The instructions are clear and everything I have received from this company has been delivered and packaged very well.

Highly Recommended!

Amazing Quality, Great Magic!

More real furniture quality magic from those fast and efficient guys over at the Magic Wagon. The finish out on these props is just breathtaking – the inlay work is marvellous and everything is trimmed with this fine velvety material – it just looks very classy.

The new line has a very distinctive look and I think you can expect more great items from these guys in the near future.

Not only is this card box amazing to look at but the effect is rather unique. In a nutshell you show the box with the ribbon around it securely trapping a single card (or cards) that can be seen at all times through the glass. A spectator is given a normal deck of cards to shuffle and a card freely selected. When the card is removed from the card box it is seen to match perfectly. The card can be different every time and it is all examinable if required.

The instructions are clear and everything I have received from this company has been delivered and packaged very well.

Highly Recommended!

Amazing Quality, Simple and Effective Magic!

So this new line of high quality collectables from the The Magic Wagon is really quite amazing. The quality of the manufacture is as good as anything I have seen from any dealer. In fact unlike most magic manufacturers it would not surprise me if the the craftsmen making these boxes are professional furniture and cabinet makers, as opposed to "guys good with wood."

The new line has a very distinctive look and I think you can expect more great items from these guys in the near future.

This effect uses a simple method but the routine is built up into something quite special. You are able to predict the totals on 2 and 3 ungimmicked and shaken dice, even without touching or even seeing them or the box in the final phases.

The instructions are clear and everything I have received from this company has been delivered and packaged very well.

Great Mini-magic, Babcock style

It just great that Mel offers some of his magic in various sizes to please one’s taste. Since my interest in the mini-magic of Alan Warner began, I have looked at other builders for these little cuties. I have been fortunate to get three from Mel in mini size with the Mini ABC Blocks being a real treat. Using exotic woods, combined with a reputation for both wood and metal working skills, Mel sure delivers and he, particularly, did a flawless job on all my mini sized pieces.

Mel used a highly grained and beautiful Bocote wood on my ABC Blocks and the workmanship is superb. If you get his "Ultimate ABC", as I did, you also get the matching open box to have the middle block visibly and instantly reappear to complete the routine. The appearance of that "B" block is startling to see. The effect is a classic and you have a choice from his "Giant" with 4 inch blocks to the "Mini" with the 1 1/4 inch blocks…Most Highly Recommended!

Schwarzman’s paddle treat…a lucky find!

I love paddles and this one is a prized one. Beautifully crafted and imported by Howard Schwarzman in the late 1980’s (instruction copyright is dated 1988). The seller told me that Howard had informed him only a half dozen were sold, so it seems it is also quite rare. The Oriental diamond design on the lid of the box is actually two wood veneer overlays. This is an all wood construction, including the chips and finished with a smooth clear coating. Superb craftsmanship throughout, for an import!

The effect has a lengthy Chinese gambling theme. Single colored chips double magically, and then change into various colors. Money doubles and a decorative writing grandly appears on the paddle to end the routine. The paddle measures 4 3/4 inches by 1 1/4 inch. The decorative box housing the entire set measures 5 3/4 inches by 2 inches.

Overall, this is truly a gorgeous paddle that is a treasure in my collection. Don’t recall how much I paid for it, but after seeing it, I would have gladly had paid much more.

STar Trick

As usual this is ver clever original magic from Mentalism Unlimited. The poster is very well done on heavy paper so it will last a long time. The force is very clever and is done right in front of your spectator. The reveal of the chosen star is great and everything is clean at the end.

Very effective original magic.

This is the easies and quickest trick to do. AND FUN!

I read thru the patter 3 times, ran thru the handling 3 times…"You know 3 a big deal in magic…" and I was ready for a test showing… just like all of RBPS (Ron Bauer’s Private Studies) before putting a trick into a show the Conjurer must carefully study his technique and presentation.
After studying the material I went to the magic meetings & magic shops to demonstrate. I was pleased with the results. Everyone I showed was fooled (Magician and non-magician).

Thanks Ron.

Very Attractive & Quite Creative!

Francois Danis has done it again! This set of paddle effects is very attractive… and the routines are quite creative. The two mummy paddles are based on the old "parrot cages" paddle effect, using two paddles. The "Hercules" paddle and dice paddle combine to make a sort of "hot rod" type routine. The black is a simple chalk paddle. The routines and "patter" that is provided make for very nice stories while sharing the magic. The paddles have a nice feel for them… and are easy to manipulate the paddle move. Upon receiving my Chance Wolf Paddle Craft set (one of my most prized possessions)… I asked Francois to craft me a set of paddles… Francois Danis style. This is the finished product… and I couldn’t be more satisfied. He is now making an Oriental Paddle Collection… and I can’t wait to get that set.
