Not something I use in my routine these days but definitely a classic. This is especially great for
younger audiences and children.

This trick is certainly a classic trick, but.. I have sensed from the audiences I have performed
for, that it is really fading out of popularity. Either people have seen it before, and even though
it would be impressive, they are bored with it, or else they find it too juvenile to be pleased. I'm
not sure, but I have always gotten unsatisfying results with this one. Can't say I recommend it.

I’ve been asked to perform Ultra gum more times than any other trick in my collection, and I have a
huge collection spanning 40 years.
This is so much fun to perform and I turn this one into an
‘impromptu’ miracle. I’ve had many, many people inspect the gimmick and no one has discovered it
This is easy to perform and Richard Sanders, Spidey and Deven Ye teach you in great detail
all the ins and outs of the different routines. I always have a few gimmicks on hand, ready to go.
This is one of the tricks that I perform at parties because there are no angle limitations, and
for those that can’t believe what they witnessed and want to see the pack of gum, no problem!
like to perform magic that starts clean, and ends clean. Any magic that you perform where you allow
the audience to handle your apparatus, gimmicked or not, makes for a truly magical experience where
you’ll be begged to do it over and over again.
Sure, you can perform where you manage your
audience and never allow a peek or to inspect anything, but the impact isn’t the same and you’ll
always have a few saying you used a trick deck, or whatever, unless you can ditch or switch really
If you want to be remembered as being able to do ‘real’ magic with no complicated
sleights, ditches or switches, add this one to your repertoire.
Every magician should know this classic
It doesn't fit well at all, and let's face it: The days of TTs are all but over. It's one of those
novelties that every magician should have, but very few use.
I don't think it's worth $15,
but if you actually decide to commit to learning TT magic, you'll get your money's worth.
I added the thumb trick to my speaking opportunities and had my business card made out of the silk.
My first try 4 years ago brought down the house when I taught 120 new magicians the magic. Now I am
"well known" and it is not unusual to hear, Hey Dennis I have your thumb in my room, what are you up
to next? From across the room, embarrassing for the other speakers that put pages and page3s of info
in a great package. I get calls they get to do theirs again.
This young man teaches clearly with style! I'd like to see more thumb tip lessons with him
featured. Thank you!
There are several tricks every magician should learn whether they like or use them, Ambitious Card,
Linking Rings, Cups and Balls, and the Vanishing Handkerchief among others. This is probably one of
the ones you won't use but it will provide a spring board into other tricks based on technique
Here is a classic trick that has been around for a long time. The best part about this trick is that
there are no pull or reels involved so you can perform this in short sleeves. To start, you can
actually show your hands empty. Just push the cloth into your hand and it vanishes. The best part
is, that unlike the traditional way, you can made the silk re-appear. Hand the silk out, show your
hands empty and you're good to go. Just be sure you practice in front of a mirror so you can make it
look real good.
Hi! This is your official PenguinMagic reviewer, B_Magic.
This is a classic effect that
every beginner should have in their starting arsenal. I'm not a big fan of this particular effect,
but it is an intro in the use of a very versatile and useful gimmick. For that reason, the trick is
There are many miracle-status uses for the supplied gimmick. It's something that
most new magicians will use for quite sometime.
