3-D Bunnies 3-D Bunnies -- This is a classic effect where two sponge rabbits appear, disappear, and then multiply in your spectator's hand. This is very easy, and very magical. These rabbits are of the highest quality.

With DVD technology, learning magic is easier than ever. By freezing frames and jumping to specific explanations and performances, it becomes simple to master the fundamentals of these marvelous magic tricks.

Ball Vase - Royal Magic Ball Vase - Royal Magic -- The Ball Vase is one of the oldest tricks in magic. Tens of millions have been sold over the years and still remains one of the best tricks around. Why? Frankly, because the trick is just fun, easy and good. Here is the basic effect: A small vase is displayed. The top removed and a small ball taken out. The top is replaced and the ball is secreted in the performers back pocket.....A magical wave of the hand....The top of the vase is removed and the BALL IS BACK!!! Top replaced...magical gesture and the top is removed to again show the ball has vanished only to reappear in the performers back pocket! Great item for ages 7 to adult.

Buddha Money Mystery Buddha Money Mystery -- A classic little effect. You display a folded sheet of paper. The paper is unfolded to produce a small folded paper. This second one is unfolded to produce a third and the third is unfolded to produce a fourth. The fourth is unfolded and found empty. You place a quarter on the fourth paper and refold all four sheets of paper. Snap your fingers....unfold the papers and the coin is gone!!! The process can be reversed to make a coin or folded dollar bill, etc. APPEAR magically from the papers!

Chinese Sticks Chinese Sticks -- Effect: You display two wands. From one wand hangs a gold cord with a gold tassle attached. The other wand has a gold tassle hanging from the top of the wand. As you pull the short cord down the long cord shortens. It appears that the two wands are connected. This is where it gets good....You separate the wands so that they are not touching AT ALL....And, then pull the short cord....again, the long cord shortens. There are many variations: You place one in a shirt pocket, etc. One of my favorite tricks, this IS a classic from the old school that maintains its effect. GREAT fun.

Crazy Cube Crazy Cube -- One of my first tricks this is a total fooler: You display two small black canisters with red caps. The smaller will fit inside the larger. You also display a small white die. You turn your back to the audience and ask a spectator to take the smaller of the two canisters and the die and select a number on the die and place it top up in the canister. They are then to firmly fix the cap on the top. You now turn to them take the small canister and place it into the larger canister and place the top on. You can now place the canister on the table, give to the spectator, etc. You concentrate....finally, you TELL THE SPECTATOR EXACTLY WHAT NUMBER THEY SELECTED!!! Cool, easy and very magical. You

Cups and Balls - small, plastic Cups and Balls - small, plastic -- Considered by many to be 'the' classic magic trick. Very probably the oldest trick on record. What you get here is the 'basic' routine in which one at a time three small balls apparently penetrate the top of three cups. Take a little bit of practice, but is easy, fun and magical to perform.

Drawer Box Drawer Box -- Inexpensive Drawer Box that will vanish and produce small objects. Considering the price, this is quite nice. Easy to do.

Hot Rod - Black Wood Hot Rod - Black Wood -- The Hot Rod is one of the most popular pocket magic tricks ever released.  I have sold literally thousands over the last 30 years and it continues to wow any audience that sees it.The effect is simple:  You show a small black wooden rod that has six jewels of different colors along it's length.  A spectator selects a number from 1 to 6 and your count to the corresponding jewel.  With a quick shake of the rod ALL THE JEWELS CHANGE TO THE SELECTED COLOR!  You can of course show both sides of the rod to be the same.....  Very cool.....

Hyrum the Haunted Hank Hyrum the Haunted Hank -- Another one of my favorite close-up tricks. I have used this for both casual and show work. Here we go: You display an attractive handkerchief. It is placed on the table and the corner folded in towards the middle. Placing just the thumbs of both hands on the hanky, suddenly the hanky begins to move. The middle rises up and settles down. It jumps into the air, etc. This takes a little practice, but is a blast to do. Cannot be examined, but most of the items in this catagory cannot be.

Magical Block Magical Block -- Penny on the table. You cover it with a small red plastic block. The block is picked up to show the penny has changed instantly to a dime. Very, very neat.

Penetration Frame Penetration Frame -- A red plastic frame is shown. In the frame is a solid clear plastic sheet. Two playing cards, business cards, etc. are placed on either side of the frame. A pen is thrust through the cards. You can show both side of the frame with the pen protruding from both sides. The pen is removed. The cards are removed. Suddenly the audience discovers that the plastic sheet has NO HOLES IN IT!!! Powerful, fun and easy to do.

Rabbits, Rabbits, Everywhere Rabbits, Rabbits, Everywhere -- Rabbits, Rabbits, Rabbits is the classic Peter Rabbit trick made even easier and is considered by many, myself included to be one of the finest commercial close-up effects ever devised. It's roots are in sponge manipulation. This unit by Goshman is a seminal classic starter set. Here it is: You display two sponge rabbits. You place one in your hand and one in the hand of a spectator. Say the magic word and open your hand to show that 'your' rabbit has vanished! Spectator opens his/her hand to find BOTH rabbits! Killer, by you do it again......Again, the large dad rabbit vanishes from YOUR hand, but.....when the spectator opens her hand out pops the mom and dad rabbit AND...FIVE LITTLE BABY RABBITS!!! Trust me, the appearence of the small rabbits is one of the most amazing things you will ever see. Takes practice and thought, but you will LEARN so much about what MAGIC is all about....REALLY ABOUT!

You can shuffle and instantly unshuffle the deck. Check out the inexpensive DVD (only $12.00) that gives you a variety of great tricks with the Stripper Deck!

Two Ones To A Two Two Ones To A Two -- One of the finest close-up pocket tricks you will every buy...guaranteed! I have done this for years and I can tell you...this one kills. Here is the EXACT effect as seen by the audience: From your pocket you remove and openly display two one dollar bills front and back. The bills are placed together and folded down into a packet. The packet NEVER leaves the sight of the audience. You snap the packet and open it instantly to show it has transformed into a single Two Dollar Bill! You show the bill front and back and then reverse the moves to split the Two back into two ones. Just that simple and clean. No Thumb Tips are used for this one. Although I have never had anyone ask to examine the bills, if you wish it is simple to place them in your pocket and switch for an ungimmicked pair. This trick is EASY, FUN and MAGICAL!
