I just bought Dan Harlan's Pack Small Play Big Video and was wondering if anyone who has it could tell me how to make the double ended sucker with the four different colors. Thanks.

I made mine just as explained in the video.
It works fine. What didn't you understand?

All it explains in the video is that they cover it with tape so it looks like its wrapped in plastic like most suckers are. I don't know what the suckers are made out of or if they are real. I also don't know what the stem is made out of.

If you search for this trick I think you can find the commercial product for under $10.00

Just to let you know I've got a review of Dan's "Packs small play big" on my website http://www.kidzmagic.com
I really do intend to update the website soon Smile

There's a trick on the market called "Lollipops" and I believe it's the same as the video. I saw the Kid Magic one a while ago, so I don't know exactly. The trick on the market is about $3 or something and it served me well way before Dan's video came out. Enjoy it!

You know, I never thought that that prop was particularly convincing. Most lollipops kids see today are transparent. The opacity of the prop looks highly suspicious. But I think the looks can be vastly improved.

My idea is to mount two round plexiglas (or perspex) mirrors that are silvered on both sides to each end of a dowel (which may be wrapped by typing paper) or a white cardboard stick. Then cover each face of each mirror with different colors (red, yellow, orange, purple or green) of a material KLUTZ sells for window art:

http://klutz.com/search.php?search=windo......amp;y=15

Unlike paint, this material has some body, and will build up some thickness. It is soft and can be peeled from the mirrors, but its thickness distorts somewhat the reflection of the mirror. Cover these with transparent tape as Harlan suggests (both for looks and to keep the window art material in place), and you have a personally produced prop.

The window art colors, coupled with the mirrors, create a “mirror glass” effect, which gives the spectators the impression that they can see right through the lollipop.

I have had this prop for about 25 years and use it in my shows today so I am not sure where I got it but one day a few months ago while doing a show a kid and her dad came up to me and said we have that same sucker. I asked them where he got it and he said at Costco in a magic set. I still havent been able to find it but that's what they told me.

My 8 year old niece has a "Lance Burton" magic set with one in it. I would not be surprised if the set came from Costco.
The 2 sets he is marketing on his website don't look like what my niece has, so I don't know if it's in one of them or not.
I read keeblem's review of this video, and would be curious to know what other's think of it. I seem to recall having read somewhat mixed reviews elsewhere. I saw Dan lecture last fall and was very impressed by him, but he didn't really do anything off this tape.

I have see viewed this tape and the other three I think they are good for someone who was thinking about starting out.

The effects (espcially the Milk Shake Effect) are good the the lollipop is easy to make. The one I have seen on the market is a small version and it looks well...like a prop. The one Dan uses on his tape is bigger.

I can't wait for the other pack small play big videos to come out.
