Packet Bundle - Pirates and Smileys and Fleas, Oh My!
$30 US, free shipping in the USA
What a fun group of packet effects here! You get three packet effects for one low price suitable for kids and adults alike. Plus, you get a bonus comedy prediction card that will leave your audience laughing (or at least put a smile on their face). These affects are also Zoom friendly! Here is what you get:
A classic kid show comedy prop re-engineered for today's performer (with permission by Trevor Lewis).
The effect: a performer states there are so many people they need their spyglass/telescope to see them all. They show the spyglass and holds it to their eye but they are looking at it from the wrong end, saying the audience is so tiny! The audience says turn it around, and using the classic "turn it around" gag, the performer turns themselves around a few times before realizing the spyglass needs to be turned around. The performer turns the spyglass around but lets go of the top end, making the spyglass turn around by itself and the performer is still looking at the wrong end. The spyglass is turned around and again the top end is let go and the spyglass turns around by itself again. Finally, the performer looks in the correct end but can't see anything. At first the end is cleared with a sleeve, thinking it is dirty. Then the performer realizes the lens cap is on. Twisting the lens cap reveals the sudden appearance of a 4+ foot spring snake!

Lip Balm Coin Box Routine Idea (Performance Video)
A routine idea for yellow or blue coin boxes, which is a variation of Ken Brooke's routine in Lewis Ganson's book "The Art of Close Up Magic Volume 1".Posted by Funtastic Magic on Monday, October 30, 2017
New Coin Box Options
We have recently added new coin box options. We now have boxes in 5 coin sizes: USA quarter, half dollar and Eisenhower/Morgan dollar sizes, as well as British 2 pound and 2 Euro coin sizes. We also added a steam punk lid to most of the box sizes, which can be ordered as part of a coin box set or individually. We also now offer 8 stainless steel finishes in addition to the 8 color options in plastic. You don't need to worry about product availability. Since all products are 3D printed on demand, over thirty coin box items with 16 material options are always available. Pick from one of the coin box sets or order items individually for a customized coin box set.
Pictured here: Okito box with steam punk lid printed in metallic plastic. This is a USA half dollar size box with Walking LIberty half dollars, which were in minted between 1916 and 1947.
Okito and Boston Boxes Disguised as Lip Balm
Yes we did it. We printed half dollar Okito and Boston boxes in yellow and blue, added a sticker to the lid, and viola, we now have Carmex and Lip Medex coin boxes. You can use the PDFs from our download page to print the stickers on your own ink jet printer. We also have 8 other colors to choose from if you need a unique coin box to brighten up your routine.

Jack The Duck and the Pinwheel
Here is a video of my friend "Quacker" Jack the Duck helping me test a prototype of a new magic trick.
Santa's Naughty Or Nice Scanner
I've been beta testing a new technology product coming from the North Pole and it's pretty cool (literally). Basically, it is a portable scanner to determine if someone has been naughty or nice for the past year. It is easy to use too. You first check the device is working properly by verifying a question mark is displayed on both sides. You then wave the scanner around a spectator individual and in real time the scanner will determine if the person has been naughty or nice. It will display on both sides either a green check mark for "Nice" or a red "X" for "Naughty". I hear the TSA is interested in this for screening at airports.
This is a beta product and I have had a few issues with it. For example, I have found the device breaks occasionally, possibly when the naughty or nice force is strong in someone, or "it's complicated".
There have been some rumors about this product and I can confirm this is NOT a magician's paddle trick created from a 3D printed DIY lollipop paddle and using Avery round 1 1/2" labels (product 8293) printed from a color printer for the artwork. Just sayin.
