I used to demo this everyday at the local Magic Shop. I performed this hundreds, maybe thousands of
times. It is a really excellent trick. It can be a very fun trick for beginners and if you use a
little imagination it can be a very useful item that not many will see for a professional routine.
That can be used to restore, change, vanish or exchange small flattish items. It is easy to do and
is surprisingly deceptive. I see Penguin is at the moment out of stock. If you have a local Magic
Shop go there and get it. It is inexpensive and you will like it.
Old trick that always get great reactions! So simple to do but so strong!I always keep it in my
When I was younger I came across a book or something that had this illusion, It sounded so cool I
had to do it, I didn't have anyone teach me the fundamentals of it. So when it got down to it, I was
a kid doing this trick with my set of tricks, i didn't carry around a magic set, everything was in
my pocket. This was highly inconvenient for carrying around to do. Ideally it was meant for
something you were prepared for, but what kid is. I also was poor and didn't have colored paper,
just construction paper, and it got bulky and such, it made it hard to carry. The End though, the
trick looks good, but is inconvenient use of paper for a kid. it's a kids trick, but is a burden for
kids to carry, and adults would look at it like, ok, that's cool i guess.
Seriously, this is not a trick for an adult. There's so much paper being folded and unfolded, after
the change happens, the immediate reaction from the spectator will be that the original item is in
there somewhere, buried under all that paper.
Don't get me wrong... it's a rather effective
illusion, but after the initial chuckle you'll get, as soon as the spectator thinks about it for a
moment, they know that the first item they saw is in there somewhere.
For a kid, this is a
nice effect. But please don't mistake this for something you'd want to use with grown-ups.
This prop has so many different uses. It may look like a kiddie trick but it has potential for much
bigger things. Penguin does a good job with the instructional video. Pack small plays big.
There are few great tricks for under $5, and this is one of them. I was a little skeptical at
first if people would be fooled by this. I've used this hundreds of times and almost nobody ever
figures it out. It can be used for so much more than just changing money....make things disappear,
produce things, etc. A great buy. Don't pass this up.
Perfect for kids or colorful and flamboyant characters. And cheap enough to worth a try
one of my earliest tricks purchased, this is easy and is really based on your creativity. If you use
your brain you can come up with some great routines. The sky is the limit!
You know what they say: the easiest tricks are the best. Buddha Money Mystery is really so simple
that you can start performing it to friends, family etc. as soon as you get it. And I promise you
huge reactions every time.
I've had this trick for about 2 years. It is one of the tricks kids beg me to show over and over
and over...and isn't that exactly the memorable effect you want? I'll usually let one or two young
people help me open the papers to discover the coin has vanished or reappeared. They just love
feeling like their hands were on the magic as it happened.
It's self working and I'll argue
that it IS examinable to the point people usually WANT to examine it. If you let them help you fold
some of the papers or unfold them, They feel like the magic is happening in their hands. No one has
ever figured this trick out.....and no one has even asked how it's done. They just enjoy it and
look for other little items they'd like for you to vanish.
