“Prince Jack” is a novelty packet card trick. Here is the description of the effect:

A packet of cards is shown to contain 4 face down cards. One card is turned face up to show a nice picture of a frog that has a crown on its head. It is the Frog Prince.

This is a popular fairy tale that tells of a handsome price who was cursed by a witch to become a frog.

 When the packet of cards is counted with this one face up card, all 4 cards magically turn themselves face upwards, and they all show the Frog Prince.

One of the Frog Prince cards is turned face downwards. Like before, all the 4 cards magically turn themselves face downwards.

As the story goes, the spell can only be broken if the prince is kissed by a beautiful princess.

A lady spectator is asked to blow a kiss towards the packet of cards.

Will this work? Will the frog turn back into a prince? But wait a minute ... the story tells only of one Frog Prince ... here are 4 Frog Princes. Is the kiss from the spectator potent enough to work for all the 4 Frog Princes?

The packet of cards is turned over and spread to show that there are now not 4 princes, but 4 Jacks – the Jack of Spades, the Jack of Hearts, the Jack of Clubs and the Jack of Diamonds! The lady spectator is congratulated on her success!

You receive all the specially printed cards plus a link to Jeremy’s personal magic coach tutorial video. The cards are beautifully and colourfully printed on good quality card stock. Jeremy will teach you the “Elmsley Count” as well as the “Ascanio Spread” that are needed for this effect. They are 2 useful sleights-of-hand that you need to know if you are interested in performing packet card tricks.

At the end of the performance, the trick resets itself – so that you are now ready to perform at another table if you are doing table-hopping magic.

Specially printed cards add fun and novelty to a card trick. The moment the audience see the cute picture of the Frog Prince, they will break into a smile. This is what magic is all about: it is about fun, imagination and wonderment.

A worthwhile investment. It is an effect that will delight both children and adults.

Highly Recommended!

The most popular and practical gimmicked wallet for magicians has to be the Himber Wallet.

This is usually manufactured as a man’s breast wallet.

The Weiser Wallet functions like a Himber Wallet, but with several differences. It is manufactured as a bifold wallet. It has compartments to hold credit cards and a window to contain folded bills or other small flat objects such as a playing card or a photograph. It has a money clip on one side of the exterior of the wallet. It also has a locking feature.

The money clip can be used to hold predictions, playing cards, and of course bills. The locking feature ensures that the gimmick of the wallet is not being accidentally exposed. A unique feature of this wallet is that it enables you to visably change an item placed inside the window to another item.

You receive this beautifully manufactured black leather wallet, and a link to a short 12 minutes video tutorial by Paul Romhany. In the video, Paul teaches you 2 effects that make use of the features of this wallet.

In the first trick, a blue back playing card is held under the money clip of the wallet. A spectator shuffles a deck of red back cards. She freely chooses one card and keeps it safe inside the wallet. The blue prediction card is shown to be, say, the ten of hearts. The card inside the wallet is taken out and shown to be also the ten of hearts.

In the seond effect, a credit or store card is held in one hand. The other hand takes the wallet and taps on this card . It magically changes into a piecce of folded bill. The wallet can be shown on all sides and there is no trace of the card.

Use this wallet as a Himber Wallet, and more!

“Magical Triangle Tube” is a prop that allows you to magically produce silks or small spring flowers.

A transparent triangular tube is held in the hand. It can be seen that it is empty and there is nothing inside the tube. A shake of the hand, and a silk magically appears inside it.

The appearance of the silk is instantaneous and visual.

You receive the tube and printed instructions. It is easy to operate the tube.

The effect works based on a clever construction of the tube and it does not use magnets or spring.

The tube measures 5 inches wide X 4 inches high X 8.5 inches long. It is suitable for use on stage.

This tube can produce a silk up to a maximum of 24 inches square.

There is a double tube version. It looks exactly like the single tube version except that you can vanish the silk after it is produced, by putting it back inside the tube and shaking the tube. Although the double tube is of the same size as the single tube, it can only hold a silk up to a maximum of 18 inches square.

This double tube costs $40.

By using both the single and double tubes, you can perform a 20th century handkerchiefs trick. Use the double tube to produce a yellow silk. Produce 2 silks from the single tube: a red silk and a blue silk tied together at one end.

Take out the yellow silk, display it and put it back inside the tube. Shake this tube and the yellow silk vanishes. Take out the blue and red silks from the single tube. Magically, the yellow silk reappears tied inbetween the red and blue silks.

You need to specify which version of the tube you want when purchasing the product. If you purchase both the single and double tubes together, you pay only $65 ($5 discount).

You will want to use the Magical Triangle Tube to produce your silks. (Rated 5/5 starts)

INEVITABLE by Brian Caswell

Written by John Teo

Brian Caswell has established himself as a clever inventor of mentalism effects, when his 2 tricks “Cataclysm” and “Trilogy” took the magic world by storm.

“Inevitable” is another one of his very clever mentalism effects.

A deck of blank face playing cards is given to a spectator to examine. 6 specially printed cards, comprising a pair of square symbols, a pair of circle symbols and a pair of cross symbols are also given out for examination.

A spectator is given a set of 3 different symbol cards, niz the square, the circle and the cross. The performer has the other 3 different symbol cards. He spreads the deck faces towards himself and inserts each of the 3 symbol cards at different locations in the deck.

The performer then deals cards onto the table and the spectator inserts each of her 3 cards at 3 different locations of her choice in the deck. The deck is then spread face upwards on the table. It is seen that the spectator has inserted each of her 3 cards exactly next to each of the performer’s 3 cards that were placed earlier in the different locations in the deck. Upon closer examination, the spectator has inserted her square symbol card next to the square symbol card of the performer, her circle symbol card next to the circle symbol card of the performer, and her cross symbol card next to the cross symbol card of the performer.

Those who are familiar with the “Gemini force” will be surprised that this is a pairing of not 2, but 3 cards. There is another important difference. The “Gemini force” requires that the card be inserted face up into a face down deck. Astute members of the audience can notice a slight discrepency in the card selected in this manner. But in this effect where each pair of cards is found facing the same direction, the application of the Gemini force is cleverly concealed.

You receive an instructional DVD and a set of 3 pairs of specially printed ESP symbol cards in red bicycle backs. You will have to supply your own red back deck of bicycle blank cards. If you do not want to use blank face cards, you can use your deck of ordinary red back bicycle cards. Nothing is gimmicked, and everything can be freely examined at the end of the performance.

 With blank face cards and a marker, you can create your own matching sets of cards, for example, 3 pairs of world famous fictional lovers.

What is “Jenzo”? You will not find this word in the dictionary or from Google. Is it the name of a person, an object, or ...?

You bring out a small leather pouch. Inside it are 4 small black slabs, with some strange designs etched on both sides of the slabs. What are these?

You have now created sufficient curiosity with everyone not only with the name of Jenzo, but also with the actual props.

  - 16 - You now have a captivated audience ready for you to perform Jenzo.

You explain that these 4 slabs have some strange magical properties.

You arrange all the 4 slabs to form a picture of a “heart” suit. You then rearrange them to form a picture of a “diamond”, then a “spade”, and finally a “club”. You also show that they can be rearranged to form the picture of a “Queen”, a “Jack” and a “King”. You have shown the audience that these tiles can reveal the identities of a playing card. It is now time for you to show how they work.

You have 2 playing cards chosen from a deck of cards. Ask the spectator to disclose her first chosen card – it is the 10 of hearts. The 4 slabs are arranged to form a square and in the middle of the square can be seen the symbols of a “10” and a “heart”. The slabs have correctly revealed the first selected card.

As for the second chosen card, you ask if it is a number or picture card. When you are told that it is a number card, you ask the spectator to make it more difficult for you to find out what it is by asking her to divide this number by 2. You may get some hesitation as the spectator eventually tells that the result is 31⁄2. But the slabs never made a mistake. They come together to form the number “31⁄2”.

You wish to carry out more experiments with these slabs. You now switch on the calculator function in your mobile. You ask the spectator to multiply any 2 digit number by another 2 digit number. Then you get her to multiply again by another 2 digit number and yet another 2 digit number. The total is a random figure of 19,898,991. You ask the audience to concentrate only on the first 4 digits. The 4 slabs are rearranged to form the number “1989”!

You receive the 4 slabs housed inside a nice leather key-chain pouch. This is in turn contained inside a nice presentation box. You are given a link to an almost 30 minutes of video instructions.

Here are 3 reasons for investing in this product:

The name Jenzo and the slabs are not associated with anything that people

know. Therefore, the prop creates a deep sense of mystery. This makes the audience want to see you perform magic with them. If you use Jenzo as part of a routine in your act, you can create your own story about where you obtained these mysterious slabs, and what they actually are, to fit into your theme of your act.

The slabs are well made with the designs etched onto the tiles. The 4 slabs are kept inside a leather pouch. This makes you look professional performing with such nice props.

This is not a one effect trick but a routine. Jenzo reveals each of the 4 card suits, the Queen, King and the Jack, the 10 of hearts, the 3 of diamonds, the number 31⁄2, and the number 1989. The number 1989 can be part of a randomly generated number using a calculator, or the year 1989 randomly chosen by a spectator in which a special event occured. You can create your own routine using Jenzo to reveal your force information in whatever order you like.

Jenzo is easy to perform. To make the performance effective, you must not hesitate when rearanging the 4 slabs to form the different revelations. For this, you need to be familiar with the tiles and know which side and which edge to put together to form each reveal. This takes a little while to practise, but it is nothing difficult because you can use the designs printed on the tiles to aid you.

You get to learn 2 forces. There is an interesting force with a deck of cards to force 2 playing cards which is a creation of Paul Harris. You are also taught the “toxic force” using the calculator functions of your mobile phone to force a certain total. The “toxic force” is becoming a clasic in calculator magic.

Jenzo provides novelty to your magical performance.

Highly Recommended!

This is another wonderful invention from the creative mind of Fujiwara.

A pair of metal scissors is shown to be inside a plastic sheath. It is taken out to cut a piece of paper or rope to show that it is sharp.

The performer then strokes the metal blades of the scissors. The blades are seen to bend.

The scissors can still cut the paper or rope, but its blades are now bent at an angle. The bent scissors can no longer be put back into its sheath.

The scissors can be given out for examination.

You receive the special pair of scissors and the sheath.

This is a wonderful prop to be used on its own, or on part of a rope cutting routine or on part of a metal bending act.
