The creative magic of MagicWorld is indeed proud to offer this great new gimmick to the magical world.
NO LESS THAN FOUR EFFECTS ARE POSSIBLE WITH PROPELLO
More than just a collection of tricks, the material demonstrated and taught in the second volume of Al Schneider's landmark video series could easily form the backbone of an entire close-up act! Master any of these magical showpieces and you'll quickly earn a reputation for performing professional-caliber magic like one would expect to see in Las Vegas. This is truly powerful material!
AMBITIOUS CARD - A selected, signed card is returned to the deck four times yet continually rises to the top. This classic of magic is enhanced by Al Schneider's handling of the basic move that makes this effect work, turning a standard card effect into a miracle.
CARD TO CARD CASE - A great closer for the Ambitious Card routine. Very simple, yet very convincing!
DYNAMIC COIN - A coin interlude in which a coin disappears, reappears, penetrates the back of the performer's hand and much more. Lots of magic - and all you need is a half-dollar!
TRI VANISH - Three coins disappear only to quickly appear at the ends of your elbows. If you learn it and perform it just once, your audience's response will convince you to use it in every show.
COINS ACROSS - Though all eyes are glued to your every move, three coins magically travel from one hand to another. It's done slowly and deliberately - and it'll knock their socks off!
OFF - A finger ring is threaded onto a length of rope three times yet comes off with just a simple tap on the hand. A spectator who watched Al perform this ten times in one evening finally asked, "Where do you hide the other ring?"
CROSSED CARDS - Coins seem to melt away to nothing and appear under cards crossed on the table. Spectators are often heard to say, "That's beautiful!"
SLY NAPKINS - The perfect impromptu routine. A small bar napkin is torn into two pieces and each piece is rolled into a ball. The small balls magically jump from one hand to another, vanish and reappear. It's an any time, any place effect that's loads of fun.
HIMBER WALLET ROUTINE - Several blank pieces of paper are magically turned into real twenty-dollar bills! Several principles have been combined to make this a very deceptive routine for a common prop, plus - it's easy to do!
ONE HALF GONE - In a very slow and convincing way, the performer sandwiches a half-dollar between four copper coins and puts everything into a coin box. However, the silver coin manages to escape, despite the very fair conditions. Easy to do - and you'll love the surprise ending!
HUGS AND KISSES - Three large silver coins with "X's" cut into them and three copper coins with "O's" change places in a very mysterious way.
MATRIX - This is the trick that made Al Schneider a legend. Four coins, placed under four playing cards, magically gather together. Though it's one of the most imitated tricks in the history of magic, Al's original version is still the best and chances are, you'll almost certainly fool magicians who haven't seen it.
Here is perhaps the easiest way to make people believe you're a master card cheat. First, show that you can get " jacks or better" whether or not you're the dealer. Then, demonstrating an imperceptible "new move", you deal all four jacks to anyone you choose in a four-handed game. Finally, you garner laughter and applause with a surprise payoff!
Welcome to the Art of Mike Melito aka CAN MAN!
Introducing us to his line of Hand-Made, Magic-Themed Sculptures. Here we have a soda can sculpted into a traditional classic magic trick called "Card Stab". Own a unique piece of art. Soda Cans may vary.
Introduction by Can Man:
"I started carving Can Man in 1994. One day I looked at a can and wondered what could be sculpted out of it. I had seen airplanes molded from cans and thought the soda logos made a very colorful sculpture. However, I wanted to think outside of the box, or can in this case. My first attempt was to cut out a piece from the can that was already in the shape I wanted to see. However, the first attempt came out looking like a very awkward stick figure. In fact, people that saw it had to be told what they were looking at. As I thought about my first attempt, I realized I could cut out a stick figure, keep it attached to the can, and then mold the figure like a child's bendy figure toy. Eureka - Can Man was born."
Dimensions Approximately 8 1/2" x 2 1/2" (21.59cm x 6.35cm)

Wand moves from one envelope to the other magically.
The Magician show two empty envelopes labeled 1 and 2. A wand is shown to be solid by tapping on the table. It is then placed into envelope 1. The audience is asked whether they want the wand to fly from envelope 1 to envelope 2, visibly or invisibly. Obviously they say "visibly". The Magician takes out the wand from envelope 1 and places it into envelope 2. The audience sees no magic in this. Now the magician says that he will transfer the wand back to envelope 1, "invisibly". He pretends as if he is picking up the wand from 2 and placing it in 1. To prove that it is indeed gone from envelope 2, he crushes the envelope and takes out the wand from 1.
Comes complete with 6 envelopes, 12" wand, 10 gimmick wands and instruction sheet.

Professional magic, yet easy to do!
In this 50 page book Paul reveals two different routines and methods for his Bill To Can routine, which have been a feature of his comedy show for the past twenty five years. This book contains the two versions that Paul has performed on television, cruise ships, trade-shows and for private stand-up functions.
Fifteen years ago Paul Romhany caused a stir in the magic fraternity when he performed his original Impossible Bill To Can routine on national television. He was accused of using stooges because the routine was that impossible. However, what magicians did not know was that Paul had worked out a routine that did not use stooges, and he had been performing it live for many years prior to the TV appearance.
This book also contains another version which is an alternative to the original Bill To Can routine, and different in method making it very practical for all working conditions. Tried and tested over many years in thousands of shows, on land and at sea! This routine is perfect for magicians who work in private homes, corporate functions or even on cruise ships. What adds value to this is that Paul has given his complete scripted routine. Each and every gag has been placed in this routine for a reason, to gain maximum amount of laughs per minute. You are not only buying the method but also the complete eight minute routine as performed exactly by Paul Romhany around the world, making this is signature comedy routine. Anybody looking for a strong, commercial and hilarious routine, this is it! Version One: At the beginning of the show the magician brings out a can of Baked Beans, and places it in full view of the audience. They can see it is sealed, and the magician continues with the show. At a certain point, he has a bill signed and placed in an envelope, where, after comedy by-play it is burnt (or shredded if fire is a problem as on cruise ships). The magician then shows his hands empty and opens the can to find the signed bill.
Version Two: The magician brings out a can of Baked Beans and hands it to an audience member where they hold on to it until needed. At some point in the show a $100 bill is borrowed, signed and sealed in an envelope. The envelope is held close to a flame for all to see, however it 'accidentally' burns. Not one to give up, the magician asks to borrow another bill. This time it's a $10 bill and signed. It is folded a few times and visibly changes in to the previous signed $100 bill. The spectator holding the can is asked to open it up, and inside is the signed $10 bill. The performer NEVER goes near the can once the spectator holds on to it from the start!
"The real value of this is the detailed routine itself. There were a few times while reading this that I burst out laughing. To get that from reading a script is rare. Another nice thing about some of the comedy in the routine is the fact that one bit in particular will require acting to pull off. It's not Academy Award acting that's needed, but it's different from simply stating a line and waiting for the laugh. i LIKE this, as it gives the comedy a naturalness that's missing so often from a magic routine."
