Message: Posted by: digitaltrip (Sep 24, 2008 08:22AM)
I saw an eBay auction recently selling Tenyo's new 2009 line of products!
Here are the descriptions of them (copied and pasted from the auction):
...and I'm not affiliated with the eBay seller in any way. I just thought the Tenyo fans would be interested. :)


Name of these are for Japanese version, USA version may changes their name

1) Mahono (Wonder) Frame Pinocchio

Showing the picture frame to your audience. The cute Pinocchio picture inside it. Magician shakes the frame, magically, his nose grows longer. Again shake the frame, his nose become normal. Magician takes a picture from the frame for examine.

2) Vanishing Point (with DVD)

Magician places a partition and thin board on the table. Then put a ball on this board. Magician covers the ball by the jumbo card. When the jumbo card is removed, Magically, the ball has vanished.

3) Magical Door (with DVD)

Magical ask your audience to examine two flat plates (door). Each door has keyhole in the center. Attach the two doors to the stand. Between two doors, there is a little space. Magician drop the metal chain between two doors, and insert the long key from the keyhole. Magician shows that chain could not escape from the between two door. Making magical gesture, Magician can pull the chain up. The Chain has penetrated the Key, and removes from two doors. You can perform one more trick with this props.

4) Synchro (Synchronized) box (with DVD)

Two small boxes are opened and are shown to be empty. One is closed and the two are placed together. When one is closed, the other one opens. Even when placed in different positions when one matchbox is closed, the other one open. The one box is printed Sun and the other is Moon, so that you can perform this trick with story.

5) Yomigaeru Shinbunshi (Torn and restored newspaper)

Tenyo has picked out this classic trick Torn and restored Newspaper as the World Greatest Magic series 2009. They have made some improvement in original trick.
Very easy to attach.

A Tenyo friend sent it to my e-mail, two videos. Sorry, but I cant make it public.

My favorites: the cool Pinocchio trick (very fun) and the Key /chain trick (impossible).
The news paper and the matchbox trick looks very smooth and well designed.

This was my first Tenyo trick (bought 1979), [b]Squeeze Play[/b]: [url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZMAxTGgh910[/url] (You can examine the props before and after).

I still have it and still use it...

With Vanishing point you do not have to use the supplied ball, you can vanish a golf ball or one from your cups.

Martinka has the set of five effects as a pre-order special for $130. Retail value is $180+

One of the Tenyo 2009, I found a little difference between Japanese ver. Mahono Frame and Animation Frame.

Picture of Mahono Frame is Disney original.

And 3 of them, Japanese ver. has DVD inside the box.

Magical door started off promising but the method is too obvious especially during the 2nd phase.

Synchro boxes is a plastic version of a classic. No doubt self-contained but probably not examinable to the nth degree, unlike a classic method where the gimmick is removed and ditched. Also, who heard of plastic matchboxes?

Vanishing point. I don't see the point! Surely there are less convoluted ways of making an object vanish. Also relies on being able to hold out without looking guilty.

Not impressed with this latest offering from Tenyo. I think their best ideas are behind them.

My favorite Tenyo piece is still Angelo Carbone's Prison Box!

Wow, I have to say I'm quite impressed with the 2009 line. Not only are they good effects, but I like how they made them in black plastic instead of toyish multi colored plastics.

Tenyo has great jobs with their 2009 lines. I love all items.
Message: Posted by: Angelo Carbone (Dec 23, 2008 04:42AM)
I have all 5 of the new Tenyo line. My favourite is Vanishing Point. Quite simple in plot but very baffling. Have fooled many with it already.


PS Thanks magicman for choosing my Prison Box as my favourite.

Oops, I meant YOUR favourite. :)

My favorite is Vanishing Point also. The new products are much better this year. Good stuff all around. But nothing compares to the Prison Box :)

Mahono frame is another item for you guys to pay attention. It should play big in kids shows.

Hence extra pictures provide in that you can always make more color copies for signed as an sovenuir. Kids will only check that signed picture for sure!

I like the plot of Vanishing Point... the elephant disappears!

In Vanishing Point, one of the hands looks suspicious. I hope it's not p******
Message: Posted by: michaelmystic2003 (Mar 28, 2009 03:42PM)
It certainly looks like it.

The Mahono Frame (Version sold in Japan with disney characters) Has become a huge hit in my walk around work here in Orlando. If you make extra pics to let them keep at teh end they go nuts for it and its pretty simple with your scanner and printer you can even put your contactinfo on the back its worked out quite well several times now doing just that. The other is the magic door gets great response. There is a guy making themup north somwhere out of wood but the frames do not come out so you loose the whole [penetration of the plates and key which is in my opinion better than the first phase for sure.
