The perfect magic kit. Why? POWERFUL magic that transcends language, culture and age.

KIT INCLUDES ALL SPECIAL PROPS YOU NEED.

From the trailer, that looks like it's a thumb tip and maybe a loop. Do they include the silk?

I took the plunge, I had some money left on my gift card anyhow.

I contacted penguin for you, it does include the silk.

I love Losander's animation, and I am starting out on busking pretty soon, I think the card going up at an angle will be a good crowd puller rather than worrying about spinning a coin around. Then go straight into a signed card trick, lovely for what I need to do. Can't wait to receive it.

He teaches it in his lecture but given it comes with materials and teaching is quite the bargain. These items are scattered in his "Anytime Anywhere", "Elegant Illusion", and other places, nice to have this all in one place.

Yes sir. Everything's included. And without exposing methods, I'll just say it's a little more than what you listed.

The universal appeal of these tricks is what sets this kit apart. Losander performs them all over the world, and learning from his experience is priceless. For a complete kit + DVD that costs about the same as the props would cost individually, it's a great value.

I've always admired magicians who can be entertaining in a language other than their primary one. Losander is one of the best examples. He's been called a rock-star, and if you've ever been around him during conventions etc, it's so true!! And it's more than just the hair Smile It's a passion for magic, and an attitude he has.

Here's a video of me doing some of the tricks possible with this kit:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=om0kuoxu......aixedsgg

As for what's NEW, well, if you're a seasoned pro (as most people here on the Café are), you won't be FOOLED by anything here. BUT, still, the kit is worth considering for a couple reasons:

1) I saw Losander do a 4-minute salt routine at a live show a couple months back and it was wonderful. He did the Th*#b T*# better than anyone I'd ever seen. And he had this whole, big, logical routine for it. Lots of magic moments packed in there. Just because you own the gimmick doesn't mean you can't get better at it. And seriously, from what I saw, Losander is the best.

2) The particular Th*#b T*# you get in the kit is amazing. Never seen one like it before. Now it could be old/pre-existing (i'm honestly not sure), but I'm seeing it for the first time and it's great. Actually, you get 2 in the kit. One normal one, and then one fancy/new one, which is the one I'm talking about here.

3) You get a pack of l00p$, which is always nice to have.

So, yeah, if you're looking for something revolutionary, look elsewhere. Gotta be honest about that. BUT really, 90% of the time, when somebody claims they have something revolutionary, it sucks. Here, you're going to learn how to truly improve stuff that you already do. And you'll get props that will make it even better (along with all the subtleties you'll learn.)

also for professionals.

I'm presuming they all have the same size TT? So anyone with larger or smaller hands would have to get one anyway?

Check out how he gets the TT with the silk from his right hand into his left after he does the "hold my sleeves" bit in the demo. Not exactly new, but beautifully done.

I've been into magic for nearly twenty years, but this looks great and I am seriously considering picking it up.

Question to anyone in the know: Is this only going to be available from Penguin or will it be shipped out to other dealers at any point? I live on a tiny island off the cost of the UK and the shipping pretty much doubles the cost for me. Plus, the length of time it would take to get he is relatively long. Not necessarily a deal breaker, but would like to know before taking the plunge and ordering from the states

Hi Rick,

I have a question concerning the t**** t*p. Is it the super elastic t*** t*p available on Losander's website and is it for you better than a classic vernet t*** t*p (my best one for me)? I ask you that because I have a super soft one and I don't like it. If Losander'one has an improvment from the others, I'll get it for sure. Everything from Losander is gold.

Thank you
