"Paul has married an imaginative conceit to a baffling penetration and the result is pure magic." - David Regal

"This routine has it all; a crystal clear premise, a bullet proof method and loads of audience involvement. Minimal pocket space, and an instant reset make this a no brainer." - Ian Kendall

""Paul has taken the classic 'Checkers & Rope' stage trick and updated it into a little close up wonder!" - Cody S. Fisher

Miracle Pick Pocket is a simple effect that is incredibly baffling. R. Paul Wilson has taken a classic effect in magic, and given it a couple of clever twists that will delight your audience.

Here’s what happens:

A coin it confirmed to be tied onto a loop of string. Five other coins are then threaded onto the loop with the coin threaded through the string locking them into place as an example of an ancient wallet for money with holes in the center. It would take a miracle to remove the coins from the string. The spectators hold the loop on a marker which is then covered by a napkin. With a gentle shake the coins penetrate the cord falling into the magician’s hand proving. At the end everything is examinable.

The Miracle Pickpocket has an engaging presentation taught in detail by one of the foremost sleight of hand artists in the world. In addition R. Paul Wilson teaches some optional phases including a visual penetration of the cord through the coin.

Give a Magician Enough String . . . Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 10th, 2020
I like the idea of this effect as something handy to keep in the pocket, and it is that. But the "coins" are of the cheapest quality. Whether this is necessary for the trick or not, I still need to determine when I get better Chinese coins next week. Maybe it's a weight issue?

My real issue with the trick is the string supplied (at least the one I received) is around half the length that Wilson is using in the tutorial. Very few adult hands are going be able to use the string provided. The bonus move is impossible to do with the string I received.

Although I really like this effect, when the trick cannot be done with the props provided it is a big disappointment. Heading off to Walmart now to get what should have been provided.

String Report this review

I love the trick, but, the provided string is ridiculous. Like the previous reviewer, I’ll have to make a pilgrimage to Walmart or Joanns to purchase the proper items.

Not enough Report this review

The coins are very cheap looking and the cord provided is way too short.

More than Shown in Promo Vid - Great Stuff Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 8th, 2020
I love this. It can stand alone, or it can be added to Charming Chinese Challenge, coins across with the supplied coins, or a three fly with the supplied coins. Nothing is gaffed. But the handling is fantastic. There is an option not shown on the video to pull off the coins one at a time. I prefer it that way. It stops being a puzzle if you have a person hold each end of the sharpie. Now it is a miracle. The instructions cover a great ending where the last coin is pulled off the rope by a Spellbound move. Then thrown back on. Finally the instructions cover a second phase with an ADDITIONAL knot around the coins making this longer if you want it, more of a routine, and more mysterious. Even without the coins and string supplied this is a good value and a real worker of a trick. You'll be doing it in minutes and this is one I will actually use.

I don't much care how cheap the coins look. That's beside the point. I have to agree with the others, however. How much more would it have cost the supplier to make the string 6-8 inches longer?

Classic trick but pocket sized Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 31st, 2020
This is the same trick as the Checker Necklace. I knew it when I saw it but Checker Necklace is such a great routine that I had to have this pocket size version. I also really enjoy R Paul Wilson’s work. This is a very strong effect with minimal skill. The cord it shipped with was too small but Penguin has already offered a replacement (still waiting for mine).

Great piece for my repertoire Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 30th, 2020
Most of the magic that I do has patter about my merchant seaman days and my family. The Irish side family has Leprechauns and Fairies while the Chinese side has the Yellow Emperor, Wushu, and the ancient idioms; the merchant seaman side has a lot of purified NSFW content ;)

This piece is clever and fits right in with my tall tales based on real experiences.
