Not bad Report this review

This is ok, but if you're really interested in this sort of routine, there are better options. The issues I have with this are first with the props: the walnut shells look like cheap plastic... well, because they are. That's why this is so inexpensive. And the pea can be tough to work with if you're used to using cups and balls, because it's so small.

Just in case you're not clear on this, there's no gaff involved... you're basically just learning a basic steal. You don't get taught any routines... this just shows you the basic move.

I'm also not happy that the instructional video was shot completely from the spectator's view. Trying to teach a steal without showing what's seen from the performer's perspective is a very poor idea. Since this product is clearly intended for someone just starting out with this sort of routine, it needed to be shown and demonstrated much more clearly.

Takes pratice but fun. Report this review

The materials that make up the pea and nuts are very well made, and they pretty much pass for the real thing unless someone heavily scrutinized them. But their intended purpose is not to really pass off as a real set of walnuts. It does take some practice and relies on the same principles as the cups and balls. Its too small in my opinion even for most parlor/living room magic, but its fun to show your friends at their desk if you get free time at work.

Disappointing! Report this review

I am sad to say this coz i like products from penguin magic.
This product has not satisfied me. the shell is made of cheap plastic! the shells don't move smoothly on the close up pad. the sharp edges of the shell spoil the surface of the pad. the
pea is made of rubber. its ok. but the shells should be made thick and smooth edges at the bottom.

Cheap Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 24th, 2011
What you get is 3 plastic shells and 2 different sized rubber peas. The instructions that come with it explaines the basic move but not really anything else. For those who havn't worked with the 3 shell game before, it will take some practice but will completly fool your spectators once you get good. For the price, I recommed it.

I love these. I have used them in PROFESSIONAL shows. I learned the routine from the Frank Garcia Stars of Magic DVD which Penguin sells, and I recommend you to get this also.
This set is made correctly. Once you get this set you will never need another set. I recommend getting extra peas, which Penguin can supply, as I have lost a couple of peas.
