Ok, gotta say when I opened the box, was not impressed. I like to try to figure out the trick before
I read/watch the instructions. I examined the wallets - couldn't find the secret, no umm, loading
device. I was thinking, on no, gonna have to use slight of hand. So I popped in the DVD (well done
btw) and was amazed at how easy and clean this is! He even tells you you can re-set the wallet IN
FRONT OF THE SPECTATORS! I was skeptical, but tried it at a party last night, works great! Super
easy re-set. I put rings and coins (different times) into the inner silk, people were amazed. And I
re-set it right there BEFORE I moved on to the next group! My only complaint is the instructions are
on DVD only (which seems to be happening more and more often now a days) I wish that written
instructions would be included with the DVD to enhance learning. A great trick! BUY IT NOW, no
wait, don't I want to be the only one with it around here ;-)

The crowds love this one. Packs small, plays BIG! Add to cart now!
I only needed to watch
the first ten minutes of the DVD to be out on the street doing this for the holiday crowds.
Its not a gimmick but a routine which requires a small bit of handling which is why I say its
for intermediate. The moves are easy, but i pay my rent wit street magic, so im in it four days a
week polishing up my routine on the fly. I have added this trick to my routine cause its easy &
I expected a gimmick but was very happy to find it was not. If you want the
strongest magic possible you want non-gimmicked & examinable, either before or after, very clean,
and this trick does that.
People on the street are less likely to give you their rings, but
it plays out just as well with their signed coin.
This trick & about six others equals
quitting yer job to party like a rock star. I'd also recommend the ambitious card routine, two card
monte, white out, card in hat, riffle force/mind reading, & some basic fanning.
Get it! Dominate!

Within minutes of watching the DVD I was amazing my wife (who is a really tough audience).
The props are high quality, not the cheap plastic stuff the knockoff's sell.
Nick's handling is incredibly fluid and easy to learn, and the DVD has quite a
few extras and novel handlings (including a signed bill changes to another denomination, then is
found inside the nest of wallets)
Thank you, Nick. This is worth every penny and will be
in my repertoire for a long, long time.

First off (before my review), I would like to state that penguinmagic offers exceptional customer!!!
In particular, Chris helped me adjust my order here on this site (long story short, I decided to add
an additional item onto my purchase problem being that I had already paid the shipping for my first
item and had to pay again). Chris was a huge help and for that I HIGHLY RECOMMEND PENGUINMAGIC DUE
TO THE CARE AND ATTENTION THAT THIS SITE OFFERS TO CUSTOMERS SUCH AS MYSELF. PLEASE KEEP UP THE
REVIEW FOR DELUXE NEST OF WALLETS STARTS HERE!!!
Made to look like it contained an expensive, classy, professional product with a precious item
within it (kind of like buying expensive shoes and getting a very nice box to put the shoes in). The
box contains the words "Deluxe Nest Of Wallets" written on it along with the two geniuses who
created the Deluxe Nest Of Wallets written directly below the products name (box is thin and black
in color and words were written in silver lettering).
Overall packaging: 10/10
THE PROPS: Smelled of real genuine pressed leather!!! All three envelope shaped wallets were
very stiff (bad for the trick, but once they are broken in, the wallets become your best friend!),
making it slightly difficult to open the wallets consecutively. To keep this review short, all three
wallets scream quality! The look and feel give the performer a confident feeling as if these wallets
were made to last for a very, VERY LONG TIME! (Using the wallets over and over again will result in
the wallets to get worn in; hence it will make the overall trick itself smoother and more efficient
to perform!). The red cloth that's included with the wallets is not too bad as it does get the job
done (not as good as the one he used on the DVD and not so crappy as to fall apart and no, you are
not stuck with this cloth because you can easily switch it out for one of your own cloths).
Overall for the props: 12/10 (Wallets) and 8.5/10 (Cloth)
THE DVD:"Who needs this? I
can figure it out!" Hours later... "OK... I need to watch the DVD... LOL." Within 10 minutes of
watching the DVD I was just shocked because this DVD informs you of EVERYTHING (NO STONE LEFT
UNTURNED) and do you know what the best part is?? You can reset this thing back up after you do the
trick INFRONT OF YOUR SPECTATORS!! I should also mention that you can hand everything out and nobody
will find a thing XD Take it from me, as I have used this from table to table/group to group.
Overall for the DVD: 12/10 (That's right! Over 100% again!!! Quality DVD, Nick as your personal
instructor, instant reset, and impossible to figure out unless you watch the DVD!)
ADDITIONAL ADVICE: Watch the DVD to the end (not just the 1st 10 minutes) as it provides real
life tips and handlings that will drastically improve your performances as well as increase your
knowledge of the prop to aid you in getting a full usage of the props that you're provided with. So
stop reading this and click the add to cart button NOW!!! BEFORE IT'S GONE!!! (Did I mention that
there's almost no sleight of hand involved for this practical miracle?) XD

I bought this trick because it reminded me of one of the tricks I used to fool my older cousins with
when I was a kid. It was a series of match boxes with a smaller and smaller box and then a bag with
a ruberband around it. But it only worked with coins and you had to use a funnel. It still amazed
everyone but this trick is much cleaner, no funnel, and can be done with rings, coins or whatever
will fit. I tried it out on my family and they were stumped. They all just looked at me dumbfounded.
It is also really easy to reset. This trick is one that will not sit on the shelf.

Only a word: WOW! This trick is SO easy to learn and the effect is awesome :) You know the best
part? The wallet is FULLY EXAMINABLE . You HAVE to buy it .

This is a strong effect, and will find a home in my working repertoire if I can work out one
These are indeed real leather wallets as the advert states but I did not
initially believe this to be the case. they are made of pressed and processed leather and as such
are very slick on the outside surface. To me the effect relies strongly on the ability to open each
successive wallet easily and cleanly without fumbling around.
Out of the box they are very
stiff and the leather requires some breaking in to make it soft which I have done. I have also used
the baby powder on the flaps as suggested on the dvd but still have difficulty smoothly opening
them. To me it is more an issue of how slippery the leather on the outside is. It feels almost
oily and my fingertips cannot often find purchase on the leather.
All of the above being
said the effect floors them when I can get the wallets open cleanly. They are easy to load and
clever. I use them as a finale to a signed bent coin routine. If I can work out a way to make the
leather less slippery against my fingers the nest of wallets will find a permanent home. If not....
bottom of the drawer.

in one word, when you open the package, you cannot figure out the gimmick, your audience can't also.
