Mini-Duck by Jimmy Hearsum

(c. 1965) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)

There have been many versions of the Card Duck over the years. It was invented by Laurie Ireland and marketed by him as Otto, The Automaton Duck.

What is amazing about this little guy is until you see the 4th photo you think it is a Hamilton Jo-Anne Duck.  Jimmy Hearsum did an amazing job in creating this miniature replica. He works really well, once you have the right cards and you don’t over fill the card tray.  He fits in the jacket pocket and the crowd loves him 🙂

Effect: This is a Jim Hearsum deluxe bench made item with permission of Ireland Magic Co. and released by U.F. Grant. Based on the larger Jo-Anne Duck.

The cutest thing that ever came the way of a close-up performer. Actually carry it in your jacket pocket if you like. It sits on palm of your hand. From a deck of Playtime cards, several are selected and returned to deck, and deck put in feed box. “Mini” ducks down in and picks out the selected cards one at a time. Ideal for small gathering of children. Just right size for hospitality suite, the small bar, etc. . . . Perfect for clowns because it rides in a pocket of their costume. Wonderful for the “Attache Case Set,” it fits so neatly.

    I Love my Mini-Duck!

    So I had one of these little guys years ago, but unfortunately he was damaged on delivery by a large Khyber Kobra – yes they were poorly packed in the same box and the big ATA case for the Kobra literally crushed the duck!

    I’m glad to have one back. What is amazing about this little guy is until you see the 4th photo you think it is a Hamilton Jo-Anne Duck. Jimmy Hearsum did an amazing job in creating this miniature replica.

    He works really well, once you have the right cards and you don’t over fill the card tray. I have found slightly smaller cards than the mini-bicycle cards work best.

    So my ducks are happy again!
