In this review i'm going to look at three Uday Products.
Swap Wallet: http://www.penguinmagic.com/product.php?ID=S12750
Clip Board: http://www.penguinmagic.com/product.php?ID=S12769
Magic Photo Frame: http://www.penguinmagic.com/product.php?ID=S12793

I'll be keeping it short. If you like further info, leave a comment.

Swap Wallet:
Basically its a simple trick. Swap one item for another, 2-way switch (other effects are possible). Similar to a Himber style wallet. Whats good about this is that is is only $6!!!! Also its made from leather (or at least what appears to be leather) as opposed to cheap plastic or other material. Also i've not seen this in other wallets but its constructed in a way that only one "compartment" can open at any time. This is great, makes handling it very natural and prevents possible drop-page or accidents. I thought it was pretty clever and pretty decent quality. Instructions suck though.
Rating 9/10

Clip Board:
Mentalism Clipboard. The description should say is THAT IT CAN ONLY BE USED FOR PRESHOW. There's zero way to look at the impression (yes its a impression device), while the spectator is in front of you. If you have Pyspher stick with that. However this is Cheap (even cheaper for the smaller version $2.25 only). If you have a preshow trick this will be good. Cause they're is no way the spectators will see how this works, its pretty well hidden. So hidden in fact, that it can only be used in preshow lol. You will have to cut up or supply your own paper. Also eventually if you use this like 30 times (?? just a estimate) you will need to buy a new one. Instructions suck.
Rating 6.5/10

Magic Photo Frame:
Not sure why i bought this. Probably just so i can have enough to get a something from the Free Hug promotion. Once again this is Cheap at $6. Well the instructions are super bad on this. It didn't explain very well how to reset it (i think i've broken it? but i can fix it with some double sided tape). Reset takes ages (or maybe i'm doing it wrong, because instructions suck), also the effect isnt that convincing, and the explanation doesn't really explain how to perform it in a convincing way (i think there is a way to perform it properly, there is a preview vid for this that is good reference i guess). It is real glass but not a real picture frame. Backing is cheap paper like material. Basically what it does is make anything flat (photo, or playing card) appear in a photo frame that is apparently shown empty before. Method-wize it works quite smoothly. But reset is stupid and instructions are fail.
Rating 4/10

Bottom line: Uday have cheap, workable products (that are surprisingly decent quality) that have short twitter-like instructions that are terrible. Still better than S.S adams tricks and stuff from cheap magic sets. Still if you have any experience in magic, you could probably pass up on these. However they are cheap!! also the swap wallet is good.

About 8cm by 12.5cm or so, about 0.8cm thick. Actual item you swap will have to be smaller say 10cm long (not 12.5cm) or so

If that isn't your thumb in the pic above then someone else must be using it too. ;-)
