"I'll make a prediction: This iconic toy will become an iconic trick."
-Gregory Wilson

"I'm fooled! Very cool concept that works great for stand-up magic. As a solo performer, I love this."
-Justin Flom

"Ingenious and practical. The method is well constructed and totally under the radar. You've hit a home run!"
-Reza


There are over 360,000 different possible combinations in which you can construct a Mr. Potato Head. That means if you had a Mr. Potato Head for every different possible configuration and set them side by side they could encompass the entire island of Manhattan in New York. MPH is a trick where you have your audience member arrange a Mr. Potato Head into any order and configuration they want, and out of over 360,000 different possible combinations you predict the exact outcome.

-Use it for close up and stage
-Full professional script
-Nothing written down
-No stooges or instant stooges
-No assistants
-No switches
-No forces
-No pre-show work.

It's going into my show Report this review

Let's start with the ad copy.

-Close up and Stage: While this is true, I only plan to use it on stage.
-Full professional script: True but it also leaves you plenty of room to add in your own personality.
-No stooges or instant stooges: True
-No assistants: True
-No Switches: True
-No Forces: For predicting the MPH the audience member has mixed up, this is true
- No pre-show work: Once again, true.

Personally, I love this trick. Joshua has provided a very smart method to make this effect work.

I know some guys are on the cafe were upset about the "reveal" however, there are TONS of ways to do the reveal at the end plus, yes, you can do the reveal shown in the video. That said, there are MANY strong ways to do the reveal.

The best thing I can say about this trick is it's going to go into my show. For $45 plus the cost of of 2 MPH toys and the items needed to make the gimmick, you have a great piece of magic to add to your show for under $80. That's tough to beat!

False advertising Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 14th, 2014
This is a case of pure false advertising and shame on whoever wrote the description for this product for blatantly lying to fellow magicians in order to swindle them out of their hard earned cash.

The description reads: "MPH is a trick where you have your audience member arrange a Mr. Potato Head into any order and configuration they want, and out of over 360,000 different possible combinations you predict the exact outcome." Well, that is simply a blatant lie and just not true.

Without giving away the exact method, the truth is and should read something like: MPH is a method and handling [edited to protect secret] such that your audience members MAY think there are 360,000 different possible combinations. [edited to protect secret]

But even the above description doesn't really apply to the closeup and "walk around" version because even a child would realize and call you on the fact that the gimmicked toy can not be completely rearranged as they may want it to.

This download should not be priced more than ten dollars and should not be bought by anyone with even a slightest of training in magic/mentalism unless on sale for five.

MPH... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 6th, 2014
Joshua Jordan's debut marketed effect is a great one. The video is well produced and the well organized. He explains the effect and the method, but does not get too much into presentation, in that he does not say, "THIS is how you must do the reveal." At first, I was disgruntled, but after some thought, this is a great way to market an effect. However you decide to do the reveal, it will be unique to you. He gives you several ways he has done it as an outline. This way necessitates the magician to have some creativity. He includes his script for the effect, which is sound with built in laughs. I would have like to heard about the response from the audience member after reveal and after the show.

The method is very creative and will necessitate a trip to Home Depot or Walmart for supplies, plus Mr. Potato Head(s). After getting the supplies and routining for my style, it will go into my show. I lecture to nurses, doctors and universities and the by-play of anatomy only is great.

I look forward to more effects from Joshua Jordan. This effect shows his creativity, his humor, and personality well. If you want a unique prediction, this effect is solid.

Engaging Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 4th, 2014
I think this will play really well on stage, there is a such hook for the audience, great routine. Great conclusion.

I love the fact this has got me thinking of how else to reveal MPH.

I have to say however, i personally would never do the close up version. Way to risky.

If you work the stage you will love this.

Some will say this is priced too high for a download, however this is probably too cheap. This is a well thought out routine and you can tell it has been worked. There is real life performance footage which is refreshing. For me its time to explore even more possibilities.

Should of listen to the complaints on MC Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 15th, 2017
Should of known better, the reveal on video was the best possible ending for the effect and was not the norm for the ending that most will have to use in most cases. Sad he chose to pitch the effect the way he did.

Great Value if You Understand What You're Buying Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 7th, 2018
There's been some confusion about what you're paying for with M.P.H., so let me try to clarify. As with most effects, what you're paying for is the reaction of your audience. Many, many tricks seem different or even disappointing once you know the secret -- which is why we don't share the secret with spectators. Some people who have purchased M.P.H. have apparently been disappointed with the secret, but they're not considering the perception of an audience that doesn't also know it.

What your audience will perceive is that you predicted the configuration of a Mr Potato Head doll from among more than 360,000 possibilities. At no relevant point during the routine will you touch either the spectator's doll or the prediction. Your prediction can be in the form of a second doll, a small drawing, a large drawing, an image on your phone or social media, or whatever you want. It's analogous to the spectator selecting a playing card, and then you revealing your prediction as a duplicate card, a tattoo, a huge sheet with "7H" painted on it, or whatever reveal you want.

The trailer shows one way of presenting the reveal, and Josh discusses this and other ways. What has thrown some people off is making too many assumptions from the trailer that weren't actually stated. It's difficult to address this too directly without tipping the method, but suffice it to say this: It's true that you can't always achieve the exact type of reveal shown in the trailer, but if that's the case you will still achieve a different type of reveal that will be equally impressive to your audience. It's not even entirely fair to call the reveal in the trailer a best-case scenario, since your audience doesn't know what might or might not have happened in the first place.

You receive not only the method and a high-quality instructional video, but you also get a complete written script (PDF) for a 10-minute stage routine. This is a big difference between this and other lower-priced downloads for other effects. Josh explains at the start of the video that he's teaching exactly what he performs in his stage shows.

Try to remember the first time you saw a performance of a coin vanish, or the Invisible Deck, or a metamorphosis box -- before you knew the secret. You were probably stunned. If those secrets weren't as widely known today as they are, wouldn't you pay $45 to learn them and receive a full script to perform them? In other words, wouldn't you pay to make your audience feel the way you did the first time you saw those effects?

With M.P.H., you're buying the ability to make your audience believe you predicted one of more than 360,000 choices, and you're compensating the creator of the effect for developing and sharing that ability.

Can I give more than 5 stars? Report this review

I saw a guy at the magic castle do this last month and I immediately began scouring the internet for it. I couldn't find it and started asking some friends about it (thinking that it wasn't public). I ended up buying it off a friend and found out later it was sold on Penguin, so I had to leave a review. This trick is AWESOME!!!! They are basically giving you 10 minutes of live stage performance that you can verbatim put in your show right away. The script that is included is funny and magical. This would work great for a serious mentalist or a comedy magician. I don't normally take the time to leave reviews but this was worth it.

A little beauty Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 22nd, 2015
I really like this effect.

MDH is a real little beauty. Once you pick yourself up a mr Potato head and follow Joshua's instructions on how to get it "Performance ready" you're pretty much good to go. It's a no brainer from here.

I had a couple of questions for Joshua before I performed it, emailed him yesterday and he got back to me inside 24 hours with some answers for me.

MDH is colourful, creative and fun.

Add to cart.

Good Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 8th, 2014
This is very good.

I'll be to the point, I can't see many negatives. I wouldn't use this as a staple in my show, I would use this if my baggage got lost and I did not have anything, this would be a FANTASTIC trick to have for that.

He teaches a very clever [redacted] from Chester Sass but he never explains when its used, so you don't know if it's [redacted]..

Anyways, the method is clever, nothing amazing but practical. Buy it.
