I don't know if they're any good, but they're always available on EBAY and pretty cheap.

there is a lot of magic in those videos.
many classic effects and unique handlings as well. All within the grasp of the beginner...

I bought the Jawdroppers videos a few years ago and I really liked them. There is a great deal of simple, yet effective tricks on the videos. Well worth the $40US I paid!

The tapes are geared towards the total neophyte, so he doesn't use the magic terminology you are probably familiar with and your experience will probably suggest slightly different handlings to you for some effects, but there is some really good material here. It's how I kick-started my real pursuit of magic. Larry Anderson, the teacher on these tapes, worked with Mark Wilson in the creation of the Complete Course in Magic and it is similarly accessible.

Worth getting for those still fairly new to magic, while veterans with huge libraries probably already have most of the material scattered throughout their other sources.

I agree with Paul that he doesn't use magic terminology. If I remember there are not a lot of credits given either.

There is a brief mention of Lary Anderson with his photo in Mark Wilson's course. Is he the same guy? From where to know more about Lary Anderson?

I have all four of them and each of them are decent videos. Some of the tricks, I think, are too good to even be on this video: eg. Self Folding bill and Cut and restored bill. The 4th video is my least favorite because of the Svengali deck tricks. Not many use Svengali decks anymore.

The jaw droppers videos are how I got started many years ago. They have good effects for the beginner. If you are thinking of purchasing them, buy them on ebay because you can get all 4 videos plus the Svengali deck for about $15.00 to $20.00.

I think the JawDroppers video tapes are good for beginners. I used them about 6 years ago when I was starting to get heavily into magic. I still nowadays go back to them occasionally when I am looking to add some impromtu magic to my list of magic. It is a pretty good set of tapes.

I'm sure that anyone new to magic will find a handful of tricks that suit them on each tape. I recommend watching them once or twice without the explanations to pick the coolest tricks that make your jaw drop then go back, learn, study, and master them. I still do a few of the tricks I learned from these tapes because they are fun and fairly easy to do. One can put quite a bit of showmanship to these tricks and make a nice reputation for them selves in social circles.

I'm sure some experienced magicians will find a handful of useful tricks with the series. Ashes on the arm is still one of my trademark tricks and I learned it seven years ago off of Jaw Droppers!
