I have heard people tell me that Hasbro has bought off D'Lite. Did anyone else hear this? I can't find any articles on it.

Are you saying that a children's toy company will be selling D'Lites???

What these are aren't toys, and would Rocco do that?

That is what I heard people say. They could be misunderstanding what they said. Like last year, KB toy store sold D'Lites over the holiday season. You got two D'Lites, plus a DVD for $14.99. I know many magicians complained that they had to pay retail price of $50, but KB sold for $15.

These have been in toy stores and gag/variety shops for years.

Yep...nothing new here. And, yes, Rocco would do that. They've been in toy stores for some time now.

Ahhh....the quest for the almighty dollar continues!

Unfortunately, the dollar is mightier than the art... LOL

I have a friend who has a brick-and-mortar magic shop. He says that the only people buying these are kids coming in to get them for raves. He typically sells a dozen or so of them at a time for that purpose.

If more "magicians" lived by that quote, we'd all get far more respect and be far better received for our "art".

They used to be a magic item but over the last several years all mystery and therefore value has been removed. They clearly are a toy anymore. Sad.

Why wouldn't Rocco do that!!!!!

Would you? YES! If you were smart.

I've sold hundreds of D'lites to kids of all ages, it's a very over exposed trick. I'd say more exposed than the TT.

Well, I happened to meet Rocco last Monday and he was selling a ton of D'Lites for $10 a pair. He didn't say anything about Hasbro owning it, but I didn't ask either.

Yeah, but if you went to Vegas and passed by the Houdini magic shops you couldn't make it a minute in the shop without them pitching the darn things.

Those just give me horrible flashbacks of raves of long past.

Fantasma magic I think is owned by a toy company

Do they now include ecstacy? An evil magician could slip it into his clients drinks. Then he wouldn't even have to try......but they would want to touch his props-- a lot.....and possibly lick them Smile
