I like this. The prop takes about 5-10 mins of construction, then you're ready to go. The
instructions are clear. The actual performance is easy and takes no practice. No angle issues. The
appearance is as in the demo.

Pros: The effect looks exactly like the demo, the quality of the props is good and it is easy to do.
Cons: You do have to assemble the gimmick yourself but this only takes a few minutes.
Additionally, the gimmick will wear out over time so there is a possibility it could break during
performance. The envelope is not examinable (but you probably knew that!) - you'll need to buy a
second one if you want to hand out a matching envelope for examination at the end.
This is one of my favorite's from Tenyo's 2022 lineup and definitely worth the $12!

I got this on another magic site but my review goes here. There is a little assembly required but
it’s not much. The instructions are ok and once built it looks pretty good. Very good for camera and
in person too.

⭐Way Better quality,gimmick & price than
I was concerned from the
DIY , but it just needed a couple of seconds to assemble the Gimmicks, 🔆 you'll get some spares
Gimmicks, the gimmick is thick that will last long life, 🟢and the Refills for the gimmick are
available at any office stores 50pcs for about 2$ or 4$ .
🟣The envelope is a very good quality
material (plastic cardboard) water proof.
🆘️📛I own the gimmick by Smagic that costs highest
price & lower quality lots of diy when compared to Tenyo ,
🈯️🈶️🈹️Tenyo is excellent and
perfect, i ✅highly recommended buying Tenyo way better & smoother than the other, it has a stopper
mechanisms allowing activating
🚫the Smagic gimmick needed to be using a clips, ✅Tenyo has a
built in and invisible mechanism, so you could put the envelope at the side or in your pocket
showing its empty and when needed at your will you'll be able activating it at your fingertips very
clean & smooth .
✔🔴🟠🟢✅Just Buy one or more before it will be out of stock.✔
So, I have a routine in my corporate act that deals with a borrowed bill that travels back in time.
However it requires the sudden production of another bill at the end. I have literally been trying
to find the right production for years to end this with and nothing was working and had the visual I
was looking for.
Before this was released, my friend Jon Kamm sent me a promo video of this
from the 2022 Tenyo lineup that was on another dealer site. I didn't know Penguin would be carrying
it so I pre-ordered it because I knew that if this looked like the video, it was EXACTLY what I was
looking for, despite it being a "Tenyo Toy".
I wish I had come to Pengun 1st because despite
pre-ordering it elsewhere, their order got goofed so I order one from Penguin a month later, my less
expensive ($12ea with FREE shipping from Penguin vs $15ea plus shipping from the other place)
Penguin order still arrived a day before the 1st order!
Anyway, I can't believe I'm saying
this but this toy trick is so perfect for my situation that I may actually be able to move my bill
routine to the end of my show (and drop my straight jacket finally) and actually close my corporate
act with this thing, do to the perfect context in which the effect works!
I did however
recently discover that an issue I was having with it at first was due to the handling in the
instructions. If you handle it that way, the gimmick sometimes gets stuck, messing up the effect.
However, I don't know the origin of the design, but I just saw someone do it in their intro on Fool
Us and he held it sideways gripping the edges of the bottom, rather than gripping the body of the
envelope while holding it vertical.
It works 100% of the time with the horizontal grip, making
it much less nerve wracking to do. That is good since it us purely a gimmick driven prop and you
shouldn't have to worry about doing something wrong to goof it up like you do with sleight of hand.
This effect is so simple and very visual. If you like the video, buy this. Also, you can't beat
I grabbed this to possibly use at the start of my Bill to Lemon routine. After receiving it, I am
very happy to see that it does look pretty identical to the trailers. Very, very quick and visual -
looks quite clean too. I'll definitely be adding it to my shows. There is a limited number of uses
to it (pieces will wear over time), but at such a low price, and for an item that I plan to use
regularly in paid shows, I have no problem purchasing a bunch of these to have as backup as they
wear out. Highly recommended.
