Quentin Reynolds is a professional magician whose specialty is children's shows. The routine taught on this DVD is the highlight of his show -- a polished five minute act which is accomplished with nothing more than an ordinary pocket-handkerchief.

You are treated to a live performance in front of a classroom of children where Quentin brings the kids to a frenzy using this handkerchief routine and the many gags and touches which make it a masterpiece. Following the performance you are taught everything you need to know to perform the act.

The routine is a brisk and upbeat sequence of effects which begins with a stretching handkerchief, a series of knots and culimates with the animation of the Magic Mouse. It is adaptable for most performing situations such as stage, parlor, close-up, walk-around, kids, adults, yet it still fits in your pocket and is very easy to do.

Routines, sequences and gags explained:

  • The Magic Mouse
  • The Stretching Hank
  • The Jumping Hank
  • Karrell Fox's Knifty-Knot
  • Karrell Fox's No Not
  • Frank Garcia's Iron Gag
  • Stewart Judah's Watchwinder gag
Also includes tips from George Sands, Harry Blackstone, Sr., Dan Garrett, Martin Gardner, and tons of jokes, gags, tidbits, and advice which can only be learned from years of continuous performance. Includes a discussion on making the routine even stronger and much more.

Quentin Reynolds' 5 Minutes with a Pocket Handkerchief
Price: 29.95

Difficulty
5/10
It's quite easy to learn, the moves are easy. Just all you have to do is practice, practice, practice.

Set-Up
10/10
The only thing you need to do is fold the hankerchief up into a square. Now you are ready to perform!

Practice Time
5/10
I don't do this routine as I haven't spent enough time with it, but once I start watching the DVD more often, it should be easy. He has a nice long routine, that when you practice often. You will remember it for the rest of your life.

Video Quality
9/10
The menu is a little slow but the graphics and sound are great.

Teaching Quality
8/10
He teaches the routine very well. The thing I didn't like is how he started out with the mouse at the beggining when teaching, but that wasn't the start of the routine. So it confused me for about 5-10 mins. Otherwise, the angles and everything are great. He doesn't fumble and mumble a lot when teaching so it is easy to understand.

The routine
9/10
I think its well thought out and planned. Children and adults too, will have a fun time watching it. You will also have fun performing it!

Comments
This DVD is very good and out of all my DVD's I must say this is probably one of my favourite. This DVD is very fun. If you do birthdays, or things like at schools where there are lots of children, you NEED to buy this.

If your in doubt of this trick, I'd say click "Add to Cart" now!

I've ALWAYS wanted this... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 15th, 2010
I've always wanted this routine ever since I saw it performed for me when I was really little. A walk-around magician did it for my family and I while we were at the pier at redondo beach. It was evening, and the guy told me about a special cloth...he did a similar routine and turned the handkerchief into different things and then made it move! I really thought the handkerchief moved by itself!

When I saw this demo for the first time, I was just getting into magic and passed it by because it wasn't cool enough for me. Handerchief tricks with highschool kids and adults? IDK...So, it's been 5 years now that I've been doing magic for lots of different people and I've gotten a lot more serious about it - I don't mind using a handkerchief anymore as long as I pick the right audience and the right context to use it in. I use to practice my tricks on little kids if my friend had a relative they wanted me to do a trick for, but they were never really interested in cards and coins and I would always hear "can you do things with other stuff?"

Since then I've always stayed away from handkerchiefs because generally it's used once or twice in a routine and discarded and that really turned me off. I started other routines with silverware, coins, rubber-bands, paper clips and safety pins, pens, pencils, but nothing in a really solid routine that didn't involve boring office supplies.

Then I came back to this handkerchief dvd and made the buy after 5 years. This is a truly under-used and under-estimated piece of magic. I never thought about the handkerchief as being so mysterious and special. This routine, although a super fun one to do also teaches you to embrace this tool as something unique and powerful in itself and with that, makes your performance come to life. With other applications, the handkerchief may just be your secret weapon as it disarms spectators instantly. They don't take the thing seriously at all and so you can use it in really haunting ways (imagine a routine done with a creepy looking cloth)or like in this routine, use it for something really fun and light-hearted. When involved with spectators they really start thinking that the cloth is not for real or that it's weird or scary!

As for this particular dvd though, it's really fun to watch and practice with, easy navigation, and good bonus tips and techniques, but it also teaches a lot about the magic between the handkerchief and the magician -and for other performances, that's invaluable. There's a lot more to the routine than meets the eye and Quentin's performance teaches a lot about performing with a croud outside of handerchief magic as well as connecting with the tools and props that you use in your performances to make them really, really come to life and really powerful. Now go scare some people with this! Watch out for kids and don't make them cry!! LOL

I Absolutely love it!! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 7th, 2006
Okay the whole mouse routine is worth the price of the dvd. This routine is PERFECT for any kid show or adult performer. The reactions are awesome. Quenton teaches great, and you can learn the whole routine the first time watching it through.

Great Kids Routine Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 3rd, 2010
This a unique routine in that with a pocket handkerchief you can make and animate a mouse. I am working on putting this directly into my kids shows. If you do shows for kids then you should consider getting this. Add it to your cart now.

Wonderful Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 7th, 2010
This is a truly wonderful DVD. It is worth the price just for the entertainment value. The instruction is very clear and complete. Most of the routines are very useful and adaptable. You won't need many materials that you don't already have.

This DVD is SO GOOD.

I bought this from my local shop and I am practicing it. It is very fun, and children LOVE it.

If you do birthdays, or things like at schools, you NEED to buy this.

Out of my DVD's this is probably one of my favourite.

Great Childrens Magic Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 26th, 2005
This DVD has one of the best childrens magic routines on it that I have ever seen. It uses a very ordinary object to entertain people. It starts small and works its way into being able to bring things to life. If you are a children's magician, then this DVD is a must.

AWESOME!!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 4th, 2005
This is the best act I've ever seen doing with just an ordinary full-size gentlemans handkerchief! Even creating that little mouse is worth the price of the DVD. Well I haven't yet created the mouse because it always falls to pieces as I practice, I've only got to the christmas-cracker part. But all I can say is WOW! I didn't know I could make such funny things with a hanky. I got invited to perform some magic at christmas eve in my local church for kids and if I can get this trick down, I'll get the church down. ;-) A complete must for childrens entertainer and Quentin is one of my favourite magicians! It is hard to get things down but all you need to get before you buy this DVD or as you buy this, get a full size gentlemens hanky (18" size) and a Watchwinder gag. The watchwinder isn't supplied through Penguin Magic but I bought this at my local dealer. Quentin explains that Watchwinders are sold in many magic shops. The watchwinder is also fun in other situations but using the Watchwinder in this effect it gets a great laugh!

The mouse is something smaller than Roxie Raccoon and close likely to Judy Mouse, and this is the Magic mouse. Quentin is the best childrens entertainer I've ever seen!

what's on it is good but alittle short Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
I do like what is on the dvd.
And if this is what you are looking for or if you are looking for a nice routine with only a handkerchief that will last for 5 minutes (and is fun) I would recommend buying.
But personally I think it is a little short. like dvd's that have more on it/are longer. Maybe I like also dvd's with more than one routine/act better.
