The app must be purchased seperately Report this review

All that you get when you purchase this are three plastic spiders, three plastic cockroaches and about twenty sticky pads for adhering them to the backs of peoples' hands. I assumed there would be a code or something that would allow you to download the app for free. There is not. The app must be purchased seperately from the appstore for $4.99. The description should state this!9 of 12 magicians found this helpful.
Apart from that its a great gag. I just felt a bit cheated.

To the other reviewer James who felt cheated because the download was not included as we all thought it would be judging by the advertisement. It is true that Penguin does not make it clear at all, that you must also pay another four ninety nine in order to get the phone app portion of this effect, as well they should. Shame on them, but if you are assertive and do as I did and call them on it, they will happily give you a credit for the extra money you had to pay for the download. If they do not, I will have a talk with them. I told them to be more clear about it & they should be adjusting the advertisement soon. Penguin has usually taken care of me whenever I had an issue. This gag/illusion is a SCREAM!! I mean literally. For the most part the reactions are huge & intense with a nice healthy chorus of heavy laughter afterwards. Just understand that if you buy this you are NOT getting the phone application... Just the cute, useful physical props. The download is sold separately & the info is supplied with the props packaging or just go to "my pet Boris.com". Penguin... In all fairness, due to the situation, I recommend you leave my FULL REVIEW uncensored. My reviews are thee most accurate & unbiased on this site. They should be respected as such. My reviews are here for a reason. Trust them. Achilles5 of 6 magicians found this helpful.

Easy to learn with guaranteed reactions. You get realistic looking creatures and the download is now my favorite one on my phone.3 of 3 magicians found this helpful.
The first time that I performed this on a friend I got a response that far surpassed any on the product description provided by my friends at Penguin Magic!
I feel that this little goody has totally prepared me for my Halloween Shows this year.
Easy to do....Great Reactions...Fun to Perform.......and that's what it is all about now isn't it?

AMAZING REACTIONS, and its really quick to perform! Everyone that I showed my new app to had a genuine reaction to the spider appearing on their hand.
The app itself like any app is largely device dependant, the native camera on my phone crashes the app, but the in app camera shows a blurry picture. This is going to vary from device to device though. Additionally, you can only show this trick to each person once... fine for table hopping or hitting the street, but for us casual try-hards at work, don't think this will have much life in the office.
You have to purchase the app separately. I didn't realize this from the PM description however after the fact it was in one of the reviews.
I love the reactions from this gag, however after two weeks at work I had showed everyone that I was going to show, so to me it wasn't really worth the money for me. However if you feel like you can get more life out of it than I did, they I would really recomend checking out the website 'www.mypetboris.com' and select a cheaper pack, there's really no need to buy 3 spiders and 3 cockroaches for this trick.

While this one falls more under the, gag category than magic it really is a lot of fun! I broke it out and used it within a day or two of receiving it and the reactions were great (people DO NOT LIKE SPIDERS)!1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.
I gave it 4 stars for 2 reasons. One: the app is a little buggy (pardon the pun) and on more than 1 occasion blinked out mid presentation and two: it could have included a bunch more adhesion dots, (you can buy more separately). That said, if you like freaking people out and getting great reactions you're gonna love the gag!
Nice gag Report this review

If you have an iPhone... Buy it.. Also the app is sold separately but is worth it and I use to have the Jim pace (the web) this is by far much better...1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.

Hands down this receives the BEST reaction of anything I perform. However, it really is more of a gag than magic. The entire audience screams! I've never had a problem -well, a volunteer did upon seeing the cockroach on the back of her hand "fling" the cockroach across the room -never to be found. But now I have back up cockroaches.
Simply buy it and start getting a belly laugh every day!

I have owned 'the web' before (the magic trick that this was based on) and it was great.. This is a modern version that gives a huge reaction.. just awesome!
LOVE IT!!!!!! Report this review

When I first received the pack I was really worried people would feel the bug when I put it on their hands. I couldn't have been more wrong. The reactions I get have been priceless and left me laughing so hard I couldn't breathe. Definitely one of my all time faves.
AMAZING!!!! Report this review
