A Magician and Mentalist dream! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 1st, 2013
Anytime you can do magic or mentalism with "organic" props ( coins, rings, or MINTS ) that they can handle, audiences don't bother connecting the dots to "PROP".
The Mintalist box is gimmicked with a stealth secret, meaning it can't be seen. They handle the box and can't see anything other than a normal mint box ( ALL the mints are real and can be eaten) but it allows you to create magical routines that will fry any audience.
As Entertainers, we are always asked to "show them something". Not many performers carry props when they aren't working, but if you're of the Eric Mead/Jeff McBride school of "Magician 24/7", you want to be able to perform what looks like impromptu magic at a moments notice.
Mintalist allows us to do just that. Most people carry mints already, so with Mintalist we're not having to carry anything extra.
Next time a friend mentions to a someone or a group that you're a Magician or Mentalist, don't get caught off guard by not being able to show them something. Pop a mint in your mouth, pause and say..."well, let's try something"!
It's perfect for Restaurant or Strolling Magicians as well!
The DVD is beautifully filmed and chock full of ideas and tips to make this a must carry piece of magic!
Great Impromtu Prop Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 10th, 2013
Ok to start, I'd like to say to any of the negative reviews below suggesting that the box is "too big" and the label is suspicious, you sound like my ex-girlfriend, quit b#tching!!! This prop is perfect for an impromtu situation calling for mentalism... Whats funny is there are christmas tic-tac boxes out right now with mixed flavours that are the EXACT same shape/size/design as the box provided, further more grab one of those boxes slowly peel off one of those labels and attach it to your prop box if your still OCDing about the label, VIOLA the B$tchfest has been silenced... were supposed to be magicians here... theres a solution for everything guys! Overall if your a good magician you'll be using this daily!
Not bad. Not amazing. Report this review

Honestly, I think the method is cooler than the effect. I have neither glowing reviews nor stark criticism about this one. I won't be much help.
Fun, but far from perfect Report this review

I'll say first off that what compelled me to buy this trick was that I was completely baffled by the way in which it was presented in the trailer. The effect seemed so impressive, and the presentation so clean, that I figured this has got to be an ingenious device. The product itself was not quite what I expected. The problem was that I was way over-thinking what the possible solution could be, when it is actually so incredibly simplistic that a five-year-old could probably design this. Not that it's a horrible trick, but considering the price, you could probably get a whole set of just as good of quality tricks in one of those kid sets you find in the toy store for less. The good thing about it is that it's a nice, organic kind of trick that uses an everyday object, which can often come off as more convincing to spectators. Now for the drawbacks: For one, the label on the box is very generic and unrealistic looking. That right there can start the performance off with immediate suspicion. It would be better if it had a genuine tic-tac label (obviously, there are probably copy write reasons for this), but I suppose a way around it is to switch out labels; this would be tedious, however. Another problem is that the box isn't the same scale as any tic-tac box that I've seen. Maybe there's a size sold somewhere that I don't know about. Also, there are four main routines and several bonus ones discussed in the DVD, but you can really only do one at a time per spectator as the reset needs to be done in private. Lastly, this is best performed for children or people who don't have a clue. Some clever people, like my fiancé, can easily get you caught in a sticky situation with this one. Overall, it's alright if you can get it at a super-super markdown.
best mentalism prop Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 3rd, 2013
Its one of the greatest mentalism prop and yet an everyday object. It has bold predictions and evrytime a different outcome too.
The DVD is very well shot and very good in explanations everything is explained thoroughly.
The best part is everything is examinable and yet 100% gimmicked
I really loved it
What a great piece of mentalism!Best gimmick ever! Report this review

Peter Eggink ROCKED again!!!
We have been waiting a long time for this and YES, he finally released it!!!
My opinion?...AN AWESOME PIECE OF ENGINEERING!!!PERFECT MECHANISM!!!
...and still fully examinable!!!They will never have a clue of how this works!!!
The routines included are beautiful and very practical, Peter gives great deatails about how all should work and what to do in case something goes a little wrong...turning it all always to your favor, just to astonish your audience!
The dvd is greatly filmed and of a great quality video.
The teaching is very clear and the handling and routines included are so organic that this will look like a miracle to your spectators eyes.
A great creation from the "crazy" mind of one of the best magic creators around: Peter Eggink!!!

It's a good trick and the gimmick is very cool. But right away my gimmick was broken. NO matter what i could do I wasn't able to fix it. Also the extra sticker doesn't have adhesive on it so you need to use your own glue and it doesn't look very good.
Maybe it was a once in a life time mistake but it was a waste of money to me.
Nice idea. Don't think it's worth the money. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 19th, 2013
If you like what you saw in the trailer, then you'll probably like this. However for me, this wasn't that great because of these reasons:
1 - Though the mint box can be 'examined', it's not something that leaves you 'clean'
2 - The method/thinking if very similar to Daniel Garcia's method for Mint Condition. Benefits of this one though is that you can re-do this much quicker without the tedious set-up with Mint Condition. Down side is this method is much more expensive as you're essentially paying $40 for a 'gimmick'
3 - My own gimmick device was very filmsy, so I had to take it away to fix it. Though they do provide you with 'spare parts', I felt the construction of it was a bit filmsy without giving too much away.
Overall, I'd say save your money and get something better if you're investing paying for the full price $40. Get it if you think this is honestly something you will be using frequently enough to justify investing $40 for one type of effect.

Here's something for all ages. It's not a card trick (not that cards tricks are bad), and yet it has many applications, which go beyond mentalism. This is a great concept. It has a lot of potential and opens up new ideas for the creative performer looking to do something unique.
casual item Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 29th, 2013
the trick is very good, but the item takes quite a lot of pocket space, for just a little mind reading effect. if you consume tic-tacks its great, or if you like to take it with you when your going out with friends
