"Cody’s Birthday Card is a worker in the truest sense of the word. Super commercial, super powerful." - Cameron Francis

"Cody Fisher’s Happy Birthday Trick is STRONG commercial magic that is EASY to do." - Karl Hein

"Cody has taken the diary trick premise and turned it into a real workhorse of a routine. Happy Birthday Trick is the most streamlined and commercial version of this effect I have seen. It can be done at any point during a card set, everything is examinable and it instantly resets. What more could you ask for? Do yourself and your audiences a favor and pick this up, you won't regret it!" - Aaron J. Smith

"Every magic effect Cody puts out on the market has been thoroughly tested, tweaked, and re-tested in real-world situations. I can attest to this, because I have watched him work most of his routines. I have watched the original concept and been very impressed, but then I saw the final product months later and the result, in every case has been an extremely commercial and workable magic routine. The Happy Birthday trick is no exception. He has not only created a strong routine that will entertain as well as astonish, but made it easy to perform, re-set, and perform again. As with everything else Cody creates, his instructions are straight forward and easy to follow." - Peter Hinrichs

"Cody has taken a classic and reimagined it into a fun and engaging worker that you are sure to use! The perfect closer to make your client’s guest of honor the star of the show!" - Michael O'Brien

"Cody Fisher does it again! He's taken the diary plot and re-worked into a real world worker's dream! I'm competent at sleight of hand but in the real world, I want EASY. This routine looked to me that it was sleight of hand heavy, or at least a double lift. Happily, its sleight free, and NO memory! So easy. There are ZERO angle issues with this, so you can do it surrounded. The reset takes about 2 seconds and can be done right in front of the spectators, before you move on to the next group. This routine is particularly powerful because it uses a person's birthday, so you have a personal connection to the effect. Visually, because of the color change, the reveal 'pops' against the backdrop of the other cards. And it also has a great 'kicker,' which is something I love in close-up magic. In short, this is about the most perfect close-up effect you could add to your set this year. Bravo, Cody!" - Cris Johnson

"Cody has modernized the old diary effect making it practical, portable, and workable. He has written a script that makes perfect sense, legitimizing each step in the routine. This is also a strong fooling effect, and since it integrates your spectator's birthday, it's something personal to them which, in turn, makes the effect more memorable. This routine is very deceptive and entertaining, and can be done with a SHUFFLED DECK OF CARDS. You'll use this a lot in your working repertoire." - Alym Amlani

That card is shown to have the words, “Happy Birthday” written on the back. Not only that, but it’s the only red card in an all blue-backed deck. The final kicker is that the matching card is found on the back of a calendar that has been in plain view the whole time.

Plus the gaffs required to perform the effect are included. You’ll be ready to go right out of the box. The only thing you have to do is have someone you can amaze by wishing them a happy birthday!

I feel mislead and cheated...Nothing against Cody's effect because it's actually pretty good even with the mentioned limitations. But I bought this solely because I thought that ANY birthday could be named. While watching the trailer I suspected the force in play that Cody was using, but discounted it because if somebody named for example, October 23rd then it wouldn't work. IMO Penguin should step up to the plate and offer those who already purchased it a $10 Discount code towards a future purchase to lesson the sting.

such a great trick! you get anything you need as penguin say you'll get, you even get a deck of cards (btw it's totally useable for other rutines). the products are in great quality and the trick itself is amazing. it is very simple to do, and Cody explains all of the parts in both begginer and advanced terminology. the reactions i got for this effect were really good, and most importantly, you are left totally clean!! you can do any rutine you want after it. i'll defifntely use it on my preformences.
one thing you must know - the trick doesn't work with every birthday. however, Cody has a suggestion to improve your odds, and if you can do elementry school math quickly which isn't more complex than 50-34, there is a very small number of dates you can't work with.
but don't let it scare you, i think it is a great trick, mainly for begginers and it has grea reactions.
