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.

I see that an Amazon seller has mini Bicycle decks in stock. The last photo in the set of seven shows how the size of this deck compares to Poker and Big Box Bicycle sizes. At $1.99 per deck and free shipping, that's not a bad deal IMHO. But then again, I haven't ordered any, so can't judge the finish.
