An entire act that fits in your pocket. Featuring the hilarious Magic Mouse.
Quentin Reynolds is a professional magician whose specialty is children's shows. The routine taught on this DVD/Video is the highlight of his show -- a polished five-minute act which is accomplished with nothing more than an ordinary pocket-handkerchief.
You are treated to a live performance in front of a classroom of children where Quentin brings the kids to a frenzy using this handkerchief routine and the many gags and touches which make it a masterpiece. Following the performance you are taught everything you need to know to perform the act.
The routine is a brisk and upbeat sequence of effects that begins with a stretching handkerchief, a series of knots and culminates with the animation of the Magic Mouse. It is adaptable for most performing situations such as stage, parlor, close-up, walk-around, kids, adults, yet it still fits in your pocket and is very easy to do.
Effects and sequences taught:
In addition to the above you are also taught: Frank Garcia's Iron Gag, Stewart Judah's Watchwinder Gag, tips from George Sands, Harry Blackstone, Sr., Dan Garrett, Martin Gardner, and tons of jokes, gags, by-play, tidbits, and advice which can only be learned from years of continuous performance. Includes a discussion on making the routine even stronger and much more.
These gimmicks are the most powerful tools a magician or mentalist can use. It's really very difficult to believe that with such a little and inexpensive gimmick, you can produce the quality and the quantity of effects that look like real miracles.
You can write letters, numbers, check marks, etc.surreptitiously, in front of the audience, giving the impression that it was written well before the event or effect. It gives you limitless possibilities.
These quality Vernet Writers are available in four different styles (sold separately):
These writers are refillable and include a pin to help extract the lead and Instructions.
This Issue's Highlights:

So you think that since you know how to bend a fork that you're ready to take on the world? Get in line, I'm afraid. There's someone in front who's already on the verge. After some rough times and some incredible times, Morgan is now ready to take what's his and has the chops, talent, look, and dedication to make it all happen.

What you read inside will give you new found appreciation of 'what it takes' to make in the world of magic.
Stepping Up to the Plate!
Jamie D. Grant is the man. No seriously, he is the man for this issue of Street Magic Magazine. Jamie became the de facto editor as he is next in line to take control.
So, when James left for a business trip out to meet with Cyril, Jamie stepped up to the plate and gave the rest of the crew the necessary leadership required to make this current issue a reality.
From managing the writers and contributors to assuring all of the necessary content made it in time for layout-Jamie really took the bull by the horns and made it happen. Without his direction, it wouldn't have happened.
We're tremendously happy with the way this issue has turned out, so make sure you say hi to Jamie and give him a well-deserved ataboy when you get a chance. He deserves the credit, but if you have any complaints... you can still fire those off to James to handle... that's always entertaining for the rest of us here at SM!
Well, we might as well just roll right into Magic Friday then since we were just stroking Jamie's genius (I'm trying to get promoted here myself), and this rendition of his unique way of reviewing effects.
For those of you who are fans of Jamie D. Grant's fantastic Magic Fridays, then you are not going to be disappointed by the content this time around.
In typical fashion, our Content Editor Editor kicks it into high gear with some real world reviews on three great products:
And as we said in the last issue, watch out... Jamie's reviews have been known to sell at least three items for every 25,000+ people who read them!
These lecture notes contain six of Paul Romhany's favorite routines that he has performed over the past twenty years. They range from stand-up to stage and even a little close-up ditty using business cards. There is something in here for every type of performer.
An effect that will be remembered by your audience.
A spectator selects a card, tears it in pieces and keeps one of them for himself. The magician burns/vanishes the remaining pieces and shows a perfectly well closed can. The can and a can opener are given to a second spectator. This spectator opens the can only to find a card inside, which has one corner missing. This corner is exactly the one that the other spectator kept for himself! Both can and card can be given as a souvenir.
Remember: The can is really closed and can be in full view the whole time. The spectator opens the can. The corner matches the chosen card.
This trick is a must-have that requires no sleight of hand.
You get a pack of 10 cans specially prepared with Red back Bicycle cards
Can Dimensions Approximately: 2.5" tall - 2.75" diameter

Cut & Restored Ribbon - The performer shows two lengths of ribbon and then clearly severs them. With just a gesture, they are restored.
Rose Surprise - Flower blossoms are produced from an empty cylinder.
Vanishing Rose - A rose blossom visibly vanishes right at the performer's fingertips.
Coin Production - Large silver coins are produced out of nowhere from a sheer scarf.
Jumping Knot - A red scarf is laid inside a folder. A white scarf is knotted. At the performer's command, the knot vanishes and is found to be tied in the red one.
Linking Silks - Three sheer scarves are tied into loops which then link and unlink in inexplicable and astounding ways.
Mia's Silk Puffs / Three Mysterious Knots - Knots are tied into the centers of three sheer scarves. The scarves are then tied together in a loop yet the center knots magically untie themselves while the scarves remain tied to each other.
Silk into a Bouquet of Flowers (explanation only) - An extremely clever method for producing a bouquet of spring flowers in the center of a sheer silk.
This is by far one of the neatest devices for producing a cane. It is a small handmade device that is foot operated. It will shoot an appearing cane from the floor to your hand. It can easily be concealed behind a stand or placed into a "Gift" box, etc.. Anytime you need an instant cane a simple tap of the foot will get the job done!
The performance video above says it all really, this is a routine whereby 3 Random Audience members each mentally think of a Playing Card and then Another audience member calls up one of their friends on their Mobile phone.
This friend on the end of the phone is then asked to name three playing cards which are written down onto a pad by the volunteer on the phone.
These 3 Playing Card names (which were chosen by their friend on the end of their phone) are then read out aloud by them to everybody and it is confirmed that miraculously somehow, their friend on the end of their mobile phone has been able to name all 3 playing cards that the three random audience members were merely thinking of.
There are no Stooges and absolutely no pre-show work involved, this plays exactly as you see it in the video, and not only is this presentation taught within this PDF, but also you will learn how to achieve a similar feat of Long Distance Mobile Phone Telepathy, whereby the person on the end of the phone is able to name the 3 different words that 3 random audience members have freely selected from some randomly selected books.
This is a most powerful Mentalism Book Test that Royle featured within his European Television Series "Life In The Bus Lane"
Plus using the Psychology and Techniques you will learn within this manual, you will find that you can apply much of the thinking and methodology to make many other routines even stronger as well.
