I am trying to find miniature decks of Bicycle playing cards...both blue and red back. Does anyone have a source to find them as I can't and have been looking for sometime now?

I got one and made up an invisible deck with it.

I am also looking for some. My kids have been interested in card tricks since they see me holding a deck of cards for so many times.

I am thinking, who knows they will be better than I am now. I'm not gonna push them to like it, even after getting a deck of cards and they're bored with it, I'm okay with that.

Is there any Bicycle deck suitable for kids under 10 years old?

Thanks.

I picked up some black rounder mini decks and my 8 year old can handle them pretty well.

Presently mini bicycle # 404 playing cards are no longer made. They are very hard to find now.

USPCC does make mini_hoyle cards http://www.bicyclecards.com/product/hoyle-mini-playing-cards/ I've used these in conjunction with a bike deck for Diamond Jim Tyler's "small card" effect. The back designs are close enough. The red pips are a slightly different hue but the effect still works.

Im guessing I should hold on to my mini bikes then!

Most mini bikes are made with just regular stock. Anyone knows where to find a 'bike quality' mini deck?

AndreaMooreMagic, I don't think I have ever seen true Bicycle stock / air-cushion finish mini bikes, which is unfortunate because the mini 404's are not that much thinner than a regular pack, so they could have totally done so.

If anyone is looking for mini 404's, I have a small handful of old school ones that I never got around to using.

If anyone still needs these, just search for "Bicycle Rider Mini" on eBay right now. I'm waiting for 3 decks--2 blue, 1 red--to arrive in tomorrow's mail. Cost for 3 decks = $11.99 with free shipping. They're advertised as being plastic coated with air cushion finish just like the regular size cards. There are also eBay listings for 1 or 2 decks starting around $6-$7.

Quick addendum: My 3 mini decks came today and positively DO NOT have a stippled, air-cushion finish but rather are quite glossy. Also the stock is more like some Chinese decks that identify as "paper" and seems like it would take a permanent crease easily. Color me very disappointed.

I recently received boxes of magic from a fellow magician who passed away. He seemed to have the right idea of stocking up on duplicate props when they were available. I remember when Walgreens use to have the miniature bicycle cards around Christmas . Wish I had extra to share.
