The Best Just Got Better

Just when you thought high quality couldn’t get higher, Magic Wagon has gone and outdone themselves. The Chin Chao Color Blocks along with Magic Wagon’s latest group of offerings once again proves that this company has a mission in mind. That mission is to show the magic community how far quality props can be pushed, and still be attainable. High priced? Yes. High quality? You have to see it to believe it.
This is an old effect, done to perfection by Alan Warner, Mel Babcock, and Clarence Miller to name a few. But Magic Wagon in my opinion, has taken this potentially pedestrian trick and turned it into a parlor masterpiece. It is just that pretty. The color palette, finish, hardware…everything, makes it feel like something special. My only criticism – and I believe it’s valid – is that this piece is so precious that it’s hard to take it out of its box to perform. But, I guess if you ‘re going to have a fault, that’s a good fault to have.

And the Winner is…

The winner is you…if you own this effect from Magic Wagon. I honestly don’t know how this company can turn out such uncompromised quality, time after time, and still continue to beat their customers’ expectations.
Every magician knows this effect. It’s been produced over the years by dozens of reputable magic manufacturers with stunning results. And then came Magic Wagon, sneaking onto the scene with nary a whisper, only to stun us all with their mind-blowing devotion to producing winner after winner in the realm of beautiful magic props. Somebody stop these guys already before I need a third mortgage. With the Square Tubes of Pekka they took an "oldy but a goody," and turned it into an "oldy but a masterpiece."
Those descriptions are simply based on appearance. The handling is equally as favorable. The black art is believable, the load area is substantial, and the finish…aside from being attractive, is easy to grip and work with. When you see this piece…and feel it…you’ll be torn on whether to collect it, perform it, or hide it so no one else can have it except you. It is absolutely dazzling.

Wonderful, Clean, Entertaining Mentalism!

On the Martin’s Magic site one of the effects I get asked about a lot is Gary Kurtz’s amazing $link(304,Psycho Kinetic Dice). Unfortunately Gary stopped making this many years ago and of course I foolishly sold my set.

However, recently I had a custom set of six dice made using the same method as Gary’s dice and designed this routine around them. You show six different dice and show them all to be ordinary by having the spectators shake them in the shakers a few times. Then you ask them to choose any four dice and to place them in the shakers.

In the meantime you introduce your Psychic Tortoise – Rocket "Rocky" Martin (yes named after my daughter’s tortoise!) – and write a quick prediction and place it inside Rocky’s shell. Now the four dice are shaken and one by one they are placed over Rocky’s magic shell so that Rocky can feel the vibes. At the end the four caps are opened to reveal the number of the top of each dice. The cover of Rocky’s shell is now lifted and there for all to see is the prediction that was made before the shaking began is the same.

There is nothing added or taken away and any of the six dice can be used. In fact you could have three chosen or six even.

I really like it and wish that Gary would start making the dice again so that other people could enjoy their magic!

More Breathtaking Quality!

Here we go again with some really incredible quality magic from those great guys over at the $link(http://magic-wagon.com target=_blank,Magic Wagon).

This is an old effect, and I’ve owned versions from $link(285,Alan Warner) and $link(3260,Mel Babcock), and there have certainly been others. But although Alan’s and Mel’s are beautiful, it is hard to compare with the quality and finish of this set.

Just totally breathtaking. Just look at the amazing magic in the $link(nd=wagoncollector,Magic Wagon Collectors Line) – it is hard to find anyone either today or in the past making such beautiful magic.

Highly Recommended for Magic Collector’s and appreciators of fine craftsmanship everywhere!
