This one I was hesitant to use at first and thougth: this is more a prank than a magic trick. I
thought it would be obvious to my magic-proof girlfriend. I just showed it to her because I didn't
have anything better to do and: after 2 repeats she was - obviously - even more baffled then after
the first time. Which still astonishes me, to be honest, I would have thought she would figure it
out or trick me or something. At least after the repeats. This is one of the tricks that might go
into the drawer because the perfomer kind of doesn't trust the props or himself enough and gets
paranoid about if it will work or not. Well, at least you read my experience.
"But I SAW
them. I really did!"
No you see them, now you don't, I guess.
like the fact that I will have to go mint-hunting at some point, can't get them where I live. But
there are probably 40 or so inside.
Would also like to say that I had the same concern
about not being able to practice this in somebody's hands, but then again there is only one right
way to do it anyway (though different ideas come with the instructions), and I didn't practice for
more than 5 minutes. A mirror will do and your own hand. And you can also practice by putting them
on the table instead.

If you prefer vanishing a mint from a spectator's hand and less interested in making the mint becme
animated, get this instead of Movemint (since it is costs 5x less).
I moved all the box
contents (mints and gimmicks) into another box that is more locally available. I wish they included
more of the gimmicked mints - which is rubber coated so the "click' noise during the steal is
Gregory Wilson's handling is my favorite.

A very charming little trick. I think this suits a one-on-one scenario best, ideally with a very
It's a great trick to have in your reportoire, I wouldn't say it would suit a
structured act but it's a good one to have to use off the cuff!
This is a great gimmick. 4 because mine got a little messed up in the mail and you kinda need a
spectators hand to practice, but it's truely a great trick!
Truly an ingenious trick. The Kennedy/Harris collaboration has produced the best close-up effect in
my routine. Very easy to perform, and get's a terrific reaction every time. Just love it.
Hey guys, everything you read so far is true! This trick is very strong and people WILL remember it
forever. It all happens right in their hands, when you didn't even TOUCHED them! Boom! one of the
mints disappears from their hand and immediately show between your lips!!!
The reason I gave it
4 and not 5 is because the gimmick is pretty small and if you're not careful enough and you let your
spectator do a 'wrong' move, you might loose your gimmick (and in my case - for life.) Ive just
had it for few days, I love it, its amazing, but, I cant perform it anymore cause I need some more
supply I hope penguin sells the extra gimmicks seperatly, just to be prepared for a rainy day...
A neat effect.... it's all that it's presented to be and more....well-crafted and well-conceived...
good value for your buck..... I love it ...and even in Canada I have been able to get 'mints' that
work with the gimmick....you won't be dissappointed...
It' OK... Not the best. Depends on the person I suppose. It doesn't really fit me, but its cool... a
little misdirection needed, nothing to hard. 2 mints clearly go into their hand and they close their
hand and one disappears and appears in your mouth...
Hey this trick is da bomb! It's so easy to learn and fools everybody! The mints are really good too!
You gotta get this trick!
The whole situation starts innocently enough. You ask a person if they want a mint? You give the
person two instead of one. To Correct your mistake you magically make one of the mints vanish from
the spectators hand and appear smack right on your lips. The trick starts without the person
actually knowing it is a trick. This is the first bright spot. The entire concept of the trick is
just magnificent and it adds a new dimension to "street" magic. The trick comes with three routines
and each are the same effect with basic handling......The only thing that may be a negative for this
trick is the fact that it is not an easy trick to practice, since you really need a spectators hand
to learn the routine the proper way. For the money.....can't go wrong.
