The most highly anticipated magic trick of the year is here!

A device that creates MIRACLES, built into a mini tin of Altoid mints. You will NEVER leave home without Mint Box by Danny Garcia.

Danny Garcia invented some of the best magic of the early 2000s... and then he mysteriously vanished from the industry. What you may NOT know, is that he NEVER stopped creating magic and has only gotten better. In fact, he's been creating a lot of the magic you've seen on TV for the top magicians on the planet.

He hasn't released a single thing in YEARS. Until today.

Mint Box is a card-to-box like nothing you've seen before. You can perform it secretly to cause a signed card to appear in your pocket, but where it takes things to A WHOLE OTHER LEVEL is that you can even use it to visually vanish or transform objects.

All built into a mini Altoids mint tin, this is the most portable and best card-to-box we've ever seen.

Simplicity and effectiveness Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 19th, 2018
I am a fan of Garcia's work. He has solid methods that are typically workable and fun. Mint Box is no difference. The gimmick is simple, visual, fun, and pretty consistent.

Pros: Visual, Fun, Simple, small (in pocket), easily repeatable, and workable.

Cons: Fragile, limited information, and cost.

The Gimmick: When getting the gimmick, there are several warnings to read the instructions or watch the online instructional video before attempting to use the gimmick, for good reason. The way the gimmick is constructed and how it works is not typical to how similar gimmicks work so you can break it. Garcia does not provide refills or instructions to fix the gimmick. If you ruin the gimmick, which in my opinion, will happen over time, there is no real way to fix it unless you source it yourself. With that being said, the gimmick is quite simple, which I really like. Once you get the gimmick to work and understand how it works, it is a deceptive trick. It looks convincing and it allows super clean shows. He also provides suggestions for fun "Instagram" video tricks which is a fun addition. I like the gimmick's organic look since it is made from a real Altoids tin. It is easy to motivate and easy to carry. The box is not easily broken so pocket management is great.

The Instruction: Danny goes over the umbrella information, including the routines shown in the trailer and teaser. The main routine is a solid 2 phase kicker that is pretty easy to do. No real sleights involved except a few basic 101 kind of moves. He goes over each move and explains some variations of how to do it. He then goes over some variations of switching the card for different angles and variations. These are nice to add to that toolbox. The video (an online instruction that you cannot download, unless through penguin) is 31:30 minutes long. It does not go over maintenance, other routines, or other uses for the gimmick. Due to the fact that it does not explain how to construct the gimmick, you are unable to modify the gimmick to fit other routines that may involve money, different cards, or billets. I think options for these would provide more bang for the buck, especially since you are paying 60$ for the routine.

Overall: I like this product. It provides a great card to box which can be easily rationalized for performance, the handling is simple and clean, and the reactions are great (since it happens in their hands). This is simple to add to your set and requires minimal new sleights. The downside for me is what you get for this price. I have seen other products come out with more diversity and product than this from other creators costing half the price (or more). In this package, you get the Mint Box gimmick set to go out of the box, a quick instruction guide, and an online instructional video running 31 minutes. I feel that for the price I would walk away with some refills, more (creative) routines, and some cool interesting applications for this. I have heard mention of another Altoid DVD being brought up that is similar. I feel that those DVDs do well in conjunction. You can do many of the same moves from the other DVD with Mint Box that could make the tricks more impactful and impromptu.

Overall I rate this an 8/10. Mint Box is an amazing gimmick that is simple and workable, however, it can be damaged and you are out of luck at this time and you are left with only one/two routines to do with this (if you do not count the Instagram video trick).

I am a full time working magician. I perform 20 shows a weekend as owner of the Bisbee Seance Room. I put mint box in my show after watching the tutorial video. It made it through 18 shows before breaking. Love the effect, reluctant to buy a new one at $60.

Price is too high Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 24th, 2018
It works ok , but the price is too high, he didn’t included a spare gimmicks for repairing , and he didn’t explained how to repair the gimmiked box if needed , i'm disapointed , it could be better if he would included some repairing gimmicks for the money that i have paid .

Great Utility Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 14th, 2018
I got this in the mail today. After playing around with it for about 5 hours I have started creating my own routine where a card turns to mints then ends up in the tin where it visually turns back into mints and the actual card is whereever I choose to have it appear.
I doubt I'll show anyone but its fun to play with.

The device itself seems like it will last if handled well. The impossible Card location routine is as shown. this device delivers and works extremely well.
The only downside is refills. If there was available cheap refills for ppl who purchased or if danny showed how to build it this would be a 5 star reveiw and well worth more than asking price. while not needing often if used heavily you may need a new one every year or so.
Altho the steep price may be because many ppl will try and make them as its a pretty simple concept.
Money well spent and a wonderful utility.

Thank you Danny!!!!

VERY GOOD...CLEVER....BE CAREFUL!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 14th, 2018
OK instead of a 4...id give this more like a 4.5......

The gimmick is great...packaging and teaching great....it IS sensitive and could get damaged pretty easy if not careful. He could have made the part that could get damaged using a stronger material tho so thats my main point deduction. There are a few moves that need coordinating in the routine so along with the sensitive gimmick you will have to practice quite a bit not only to get smooth but smooth and NOT damage anything. Done correctly this is pretty cool. Recommend!!

Great! But... Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 19th, 2018
I picked this up from my local magic shop in Seattle Pike Place Market. This effect is all around well made and I truly enjoying performing this effect. I work at the restaurant as table hopping and I usually use Destination Box by Jon Allen which I absolutely love using. But the problem with Destination box is the size of it and you have to carry it around in hand. Mintbox is much much smaller than Destination Box, Paragon 3D by Jon Allen, The Box by Mark Southworth, and great for pocket management, and Mintbox is something that recognize by everyone.

The only things I have problem with this is, 40-50 is a reasonable price for Mintbox. Not 60. And second is, if you're going to charge 60, at least have some replacement or instruction how to build a new one. If something happened to my Mintbox, which is delicate, I WANT to know how to replace it at low cost. Not paying another 60 bucks each time.

Daniel Garcia has done it again!! The only reason for a 4 and not a 5 is i really think for $60 dollars its a little much. One little mistake (one wrong move) with the gimmick and ITS DONE!!!! So be very CAREFUL!!! Other then that its AMAZING.

Very unnecessary gimmick and you will break it easily. Save your money for better things.

Beauty. But not for the grandkids. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 15th, 2018
This is a solid utility device. It is something so skillfully crafted that if used properly, should fade into the background, even flow out of the spectator's memory,
if they try to reconstruct what they saw (big box, little box, mint box, pill tin). It can be handled as long as the audience can be managed (i.e., not by your 2nd cousin Fred's toddler who sticks things in his nose) but no one will be interested in it. But it is a utility, not an indestructible self-working Tenyo miracle. Don't buy it, break it and downgrade it because you don't want to put in the mental and muscle (and character acting) practice. Don't buy this for your 8 year old grandson. The vid is excellent, comprehensive but does not spoon feed you moves. You must watch and listen and adapt move for your own center of gravity (sometime's Daniel's is behind him I think). Fragile? No more than a Fantasio product. Highly recommended for the pro, semi-pro and hobbyist with benefits (you know who you are).

Will be good with practice Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 22nd, 2018
Is it worth $60? It will be if your able to put in a little practice time. There's a move and a half that will require some time but I expect it will get good reactions after I do so. Yes it COULD be fragile, but only if you don't heed the many warnings.
