"Heinstein's Dream is without a doubt the best torn and restored card I have seen. It's a real workable item!"
- Bill Malone

"I have had this for quite a while now and can HIGHLY recommend it to anyone who want to add a T&R card routine to their REAL WORLD show. Of all the versions that I have examined over the years, Heinstein's Dream is the one that I currently use strolling/stand up. It looks very clean and is relatively easy to do!"
- Cody Fisher

"Heinstein's Dream is strong, visual magic that is practical and performable. If you are looking for a real world torn and restored card effect Heinstein's Dream is the answer."
- Matthew Furman - Professional Magician

"Heinstein's Dream blew me away the first time I saw it. It looks like real magic. The explanations are clear and easy to follow with no details left out. By far my favorite Torn and Restored card effect!"
- Ian Pidgeon

Heinstein's Dream is a clean, practical, commercial and easy to perform version of the Torn and Restored Card. Fine-tuned after more than a decade of performances, creator Karl Hein has developed a diabolical method for this classic effect. Heinstein's Dream allows you to adapt the same setup to perform 3 versions for maximum versatility: An instant flash restoration at the performer's fingertips, a powerful restoration in the spectator's hand and a visual piece by piece restoration. If you've been searching for a solution to this plot that is as practical as it is deceptive- look no further. Heinstein's Dream delivers!

Great Concept Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 14th, 2014
This is a great approach to the TnR plot. Although my intentions of buying this were in hopes that this would be my most "practical, go to" version of the TnR... I regret to say it is not... There is a bit of a time consuming set-up and for most professionals this would probably not be worth losing pocket space for the extra deck you would most likely need to perform this in a walk around situation without a force.

If you really like the look of this it might be worth it to you, but in my opinion there are more practical solutions to the TnR effect. The flash restoration and in the hands versions are by far the most workable of this dvd. The piece by piece is very angle sensitive and does not look near as visual or clean as other methods out there. The method to being able to show the front and back of a free selection is a very fooling method but as I said before also comes at a cost of losing the freedom of a normal deck and pocket space(deck switch). The signature is also very peculiar as you must only sign in one corner...

Overall I loved this method, I think its a work of art and brilliantly thought out... but I can not say this would ever be the number one choice for most. This is a wonderful flash restoration of a freely selected card.

A Cardworker's Dream Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 28th, 2014
This really is a TnR routine that fullfills three very important needs: simplicity, minimal setup and yet super strong impact! A real worker's dream! Finally a TnR routine that makes sense. And you end 99,9% clean, with absolutely no heat on that little "someting". Karl is an excellent teacher and explains this thoroughly, so that anyone born with two hands easily will get this down and then perform it in the real world for real people. This goes straight into my professional working repertoire!

deserves 1st Nobel Prize in Magic Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 15th, 2014
This trick deserves the first Nobel Prize in Magic. Why?
Because this effect, the torn and restored card, has been a mess for a long time--just look at how many versions you have in your closet. But it took Karl Hein to come along, and to cloak it in mystery (this has to do with freely selecting the card, and you must buy it to understand). Next, he understood that when you are doing this trick, conditions can change quickly. SO HE WORKED IT OUT SO YOU CAN EASILY AND SIMPLY, WITH SOME PRACTICE, CHOOSE ONE OF TWO OR THREE ENDINGS, DEPENDING ON HOW THE ANGLES, etc... are. THIS IS WORKABLE, FUN, AND PURE GENIUS. This type of solution may never have been worked out for this type of effect, so Karl deserves great recognition for making this workable and incredibly flexible. 10 out of 5 stars.

fools 'em every time Report this review

I recently performed this in front of some folks at a convenience store, and in exchange for their time, I bought some candy bars they were selling. It was good practice and the kid there had a souvenir card he was still mesmerized with when I left.
