I have to say, if you were doing a close up show that you regularly performed, this could be a great set piece. It would be a piece of theater worth exploring. It's movements looked too automated. But then if a clay figure came to life what would it look like?

You'll never be able to perform this thing in real life... it takes a ton of time to set up and it's pretty obvious that it's just a trick (the shoes thing and everything) and plus your hands get really oily after you mess around with clay so you wouldn't be able to do anything else after this trick.
I wouldn't buy it for magic purposes, maybe just for something to own because it's cool but the price is too high anyway


Last time I messed around with clay I didn't end up with really oily hands. Nothing a quick wipe down with a wet nap or some hand sanitizer couldn't fix up.

I would do this with Playdough. Yeah wetnaps would work fine, and this effect would most likely be my closer anyway. One could make an entire routine around this effect, one that could last the length of several effects if put together properly.

Playdough would be great because it's easily recognizable here in the States, and there are quite a few different colors of it that are easily available.

Little Man is the biggest joke that has ever been hyped for release. It's also been over a year now since the terrible demo of Little Man gliding was first released. Janet, Paul's sister has been leading many people on with false updates, broken promises, and down right lies.

Paul Harris should be ashamed of himself for taking part in such a con. Little Man's advertising was seriously misleading, and was even posted on the Ripoff website.

All the old threads on MagicCafe relating to Little Man have been locked, while new threads constantly get deleted. Makes you wonder what's going on doesn't it. Why so much censorship and cover up?

In the mean time Paul Harris is still taking pre-orders from any sucker willing to let Paul Harris earn the interrest on their money while they are led to believe that one day they will receive their Little Man.

Little Man and Paul Harris will both go down as one of the most deceitful marketing tactic in magic history.

That's because he advertises on the "green place" and Mr. Brooks won't let anyone offend an advertiser. Brooks doesn't care about the quality or truthfulness of the ads, just the income they provide.

I would say that Paddy is right.

I like most of Paul's work but I think Little Man one that even him bull s h t to make money then still has not gave people what thay payed for. By the time most of them asked for there money back, he made money off theres in the bank.

So was this project officially cancelled? Or are they still claiming it's in the works?

Just hit the new release section today.
If it were not for the incredibly suspicious pad you have to put it on it might be worth the $300. If that pad is made to look liks a wallet or something(can't really tell from the video) it might take the heat off the method.
