There's a clever piece of apparatus out there that lets you perform multiple miracles with your bare hands.

It hides in plain sight, allowing you to vanish, produce and change items while your hands seem to be completely empty.

If not, you'll definitely want one after you see what can be done with it.

In this lesson, Dan will show you:

- How to get rid of annoying cigarette smoke

- How to control the element of fire

- How to instantly restore damaged electronics

- How to vanish over 800 things at the same time... and more!

You're going to learn the proper way to employ one of my favorite devices. Join Dan as he teaches you tricks with The Thumb Tip!

Glad I purchased it Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 3rd, 2014
I debated about purchasing this edition because I have so much reference material on the Thumb Tip already. (i.e. Darwin's DVD Set, 101 Things to do with a Thumb Tip, and several other sources to include Tarbell. Dan's presentation is refreshing to watch while he shows up-to-date methods, and tips on employing this gimmick. The suggestion he has for hiding it from view and becoming comfortable using it is worth the price of the download alone. The effects he presents in this volume are things you can do seemingly impromptu when someone asks, "Will you show me a trick?"

I totally agree you may start carrying this device again if you aren't already.

This is the Best Tarbell Episode Yet Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 3rd, 2014
Thumb tips are bad-ass! And there's nothing better than a set of effects that teach you how to use them in a modern setting!!!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Also, Thumb Tips are really cheap and really good, buy a cheap durable one and follow Dan's instructions on concealing a thumb tip and you are good!

This is how a TT is used! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 4th, 2014
Once again, Dan Harlan nailed it.

It's a big mistake for any Magician to not use a TT because miracles can be accomplished with it.

Let Dan teach you how to blow people away with your magic using this grand daddy of all magic props.

My new found respect for the thumb tip. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 3rd, 2014
I've always thought thumb tips are old school. Now after watching Tarbell 6 on thumb tips I've a new found respect for this most neglected prop. If you want to have a deeper understanding of using the thumb tip which I always thought only to vanish a silk or do a bill change, do get this video download, no regrets. Now the thumb tip will always be in my pocket!

this is what I have needed all along Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 4th, 2014
I have barely used my thumb tip and this lesson has really opened my eyes to the possibilities. I only ever did a sugar trick and even then it was bland. This has made my thumb tip my new best friend. Love the cigarette effect. If u own one and have never used it, this video will have u hunting your drawer for it! Well presented, a good choice of effects to suit anyone, with superb inspirational ideas and changes u can do with the right imagination.

I will use my Thumb Tip again Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 5th, 2014
One of my first gimmicks that I owned was a thumb tip. I got it about 30 years ago. It was the only one they had in the store and it fit way down on my thumb and was very loose--it was obviously made for someone bigger than me. I used it to open my act as a junior magician producing and vanishing a silk: a wow moment. I didn't know it could do anything else.

I recently watched Smoothini on American Got Talent (2014) pour salt into his had, make it disappear, then reappear in the other hand. He did the same with water. He is using a thumb tip, I thought. I didn't know it could do that! This was a reawakening. Now, my thumb tip is way too loose for water, so I turned to the thumb tip guide on Penguin Magic's website and learned that there are different types, materials, and sizes of thumb tips and that some work better with liquids and other better with fire, silks, and so forth.

In addition to the website guide, the video also has a discussion about fit and types. From both of these, I learned that my old thumb tip is way too big -- I never did grow into it.

I am so glad that I found your guide and found this video. What is old is new again.

Nice teaching Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 4th, 2014
This is a really nice episode. Dan as usual teaches the wonderful tricks very elegantly.

I just think he went too fast over the part with the burning stick into palm. I burned and destroyed my thumb tip (and it also hurted like....), because I just followed him on the video. There was no description on what happens to the fire, when it gets into the tip, so it let me now with a destroyed thumb tip. .. my last one :(

But really nice tricks!

Great video Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 7th, 2014
I have slowly become a fan of Dan's over the years, but this solidifies the deal. First class teaching of classic routines using a prop that many young magicians probably don't even know exists.

Kudos to Penguin for reviving a classic and not trying to make it over-the-top cool like other magic sites that focus more on the Affliction t-shirt the magician is wearing than the trick.

Revisiting the Classics Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 26th, 2014
I was in the midst of doing a tutorial for the original Tarbell course in magic for magibook. However, Dan Harlan is the right guy to teach it. I have been loving every installment, and revisiting these classsics with Dan's insight and updates has helped excite me again about these items. For instance, the thumb tip! Other than using it for Losander's the salt game, I really didn't use a thumb tip anymore. However, after watching this lesson I have started caring it everyone and have even reincorperated Annemann's billet switch utilizing the gimmick. If that wasn't enought, PM was nice enough to send me another thumb tip for free.
