The classic Gypsy Thread effect built into an everyday object. Close up, Stand up, Kids shows, emcee's, this prop fits into any situation.

It's very rare to be able to add to your repertoire a 100% audience tested piece of magic. After hundreds of performances, tweaking and re-tweaking every last detail of the Gypsy Yo-Yo, you can rest assured every wrinkle has be ironed out.

Bring from you pocket a real Imperial Yo-Yo. After showing the Yo-Yo go up and down several times, you explain to your audience that, as a kid, the string was always far too long and the Yo-Yo would always hit the ground. Trying to adjust the length, you proceed to snap the string, breaking off a small piece. This is repeated several times until all that is left dangling from the Yo-Yo are a few inches of string.

The pieces are rolled together into a ball and added to the small, dangling Yo-Yo string. Without any cover etc., the very end of the string is slowly pulled, the ball unravels and the Yo-Yo string is once again fully restored. The string is wound back around the Yo-Yo. You finish by showing the Yo-Yo freely spinning up and down and back to its original state.

The gimmick is custom-built, inside a real Yo-Yo. We love the method and handling. This effect is perfect for so many different types of show. It is destined to become a classic for many years.

Perfect for stand up, strolling, kids' shows, emcees, trade shows. This prop fits into any performer's pocket and is always ready to go.

Mark Mason does a terrific job explaining this trick. I did it for my magic club for the first time and it went well. Rather easy to do even for beginners. A little expensive and more of a certain type of string has to be purchased after a few tricks. This is a good trick.

First off, I love the idea of Gypsie tread.. But their is never a reason to break the thread, let alone restore it. Gypsie Yo yo solves this problem. It's well made and very genius!! Marks explanation is spot on as always and it's practical for any situation. Buy it now!!!!

This is a great prop for the classic Gypsy Thread. The story and patter wrote itself for me. Highly recommended for any audience. This is going into my act after some well rehearsed practice time.

A Fantastic Update to an Old Classic Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 19th, 2015
I'd been doing the gypsy thread on and off for years in stand-up and stage shows. With the exception of the few times I had a camera and video screen projecting live, it always felt to me as if the audience didn't get the full effect of this beautiful restoration, mainly because the thread was so small and they would need to strain their eyes to see it. The Gypsy Yo-Yo solved this problem and more! The set-up and reset on this is so easy and the routine works perfect in all kinds of environments. You can even do it surrounded. No tangles ever and being able to yo-yo before and after the effect really sells it. LOVE THIS, THANK YOU DAVID LEVITAN AND MARK MASON!

Predictable Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 5th, 2015
I gave this trick 3 stars because it is rather easy to figure out how it is performed..in MY opinion. The trick is well made and thought out though. The DVD is not as thorough as Dave Mason usually does. For instance, he does not tell you how to dispose of the broken threads! Most could figure this out, but still, it is a crucial part of the routine. Also, because of the set up you cannot use the YoYo very vigorously before breaking the string. AFTER the restoration you can. Lastly, and this is only my personal observation, I thought the string supplied looked too thick for YoYo string. Consequently, I unraveled it to make it half as thick. It still worked okay, but also allowed you to get twice the mileage out of the string supplied and made it a lot easier to prepare and conceal the gimmick. Hope this helps!

Yoyo Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 2nd, 2016
This product was put together really well.
The Duncan yoyo symbol came off of the yoyo the first day of practising which you can always make a sticker and put it on or leave it blank. Mark also mentions that there is enough string supplied to do 10 performances but realistically there is enough to do it twice but yet again he tells you where to buy more.
That being said this trick works amazing and I'm adding it to my stage and street shows.
