See Through Card - Tenyo T-77
Shigeru Sugawara - 1976 (2nd hand)

A spectator selects a card. The magician brings out a transparent plastic case showing the four of diamonds. But this isn't the selected card. The magician opens the case and the ace of diamonds appears. But this isn't the selection either. A thin transparent plate is shown freely and the case is closed with the plate inside. When the case is reopened, the spots have disappeared from the case and have magically "printed" onto the previously blank plate showing as the five of diamonds. This is the selected card!

Complete - Used but in excellent condition.

Pillars of Thor - Tenyo T170 (1995) - NEW

A legendary Magical Mystery!

The Pillars of Thor is an entirely new version of a classic effect in magic.

Easy to do, yet a real fooler!

A length of string runs between the two, absolutely separate, Pillars of Thor. Placing the Pillars together, the magician cuts the string with a playing card. Yet by pulling one end of the string, the other end moves. The pillars are separated to show the cut ends of the string. Still the string seems to be connected. An impossibility! Then, a magic wave, and the string is completely restored the pillars separated to show the string running between them as before.

Created by Hiroshi Kondo.

Funnel Vision - Tenyo T182 (1997) - NEW

You show an opaque plastic case. Open the lid to show the inside. The inside looks like a cutaway view of a funnel.

Drop a Quarter into the top of the funnel. When it comes out the bottom, it has changed into a little tiny coin! Do this three times. Each time a shrunken coin drops out the bottom. Now, turn the case over and drop two of the tiny quarters inside. Suddenly, they change into a full-sized Half Dollar!! Self-working. Quite a charming routine.

Quarters pass through a funnel-shaped case, and drop out the other end.... shrunken!
After three quarter have been transformed, the funnel is turned upside down.
When two of the miniatures are now inserted, they drop out in the form of a full-sized half dollar.

The construction of this thin case allows for the optional usage of its interior space. It allows you to switch regular coins for miniature ones, and miniature coins for a real half dollar. Mysterious and humorous, this is sure to cause laughter for your spectators.

Comes with special case, 5 miniature metal quarters, and detailed English instructions.

Hyper Vision - Tenyo T143 (1989) - NEW

#1. Five ESP slates depicting the five mindreader's symbols are shown to your audience.
A spectator is selected to be the Magical Mindreader and is given a pair of magical opera glasses, which he takes with him while he leaves the room.

#2. Another spectator selects one of the five symbols.

#3. The mindreader returns, looks through the glasses, and instantly names the chosen slate. The trick can be immediately repeated.

Hyper Vision goes beyond mind reading: this is magical mind control! Better still: it is 100% sure-fire -- and the volunteer mindreader will be fooled along with the rest of the audience. This amazing feat uses a scientific principle new to magic.

Silk Serenade - Tenyo T25 1970 (I believe this is probably 80's) - 2nd hand

The Magician places a black 45rpm record into the record cover. Then he threads the red silk through the center of the record cover and makes a magical gesture.
He retrieves the record, now amazingly, the record changes into a red color to match the thread silk.

The magician repeats the action two more times with different colored silks to bring out a yellow and then a blue silk.

Finally, he opens the record cover to reveal that nothing remains inside and to show the black records were all transformed into colored records by the corresponding silks.

Second Hand. All in great condition with original instructions and silks. Cellotape covers a small tear in packaging flap.

Ghostwriter - T125 (Circa 1986) - 2nd hand

This is pre-owned item. Picture is of actual item.

Does not have any of the original packaging But the English instructions are the original and is in overall great condition.

Some tricks get better with age. When a magician performs a trick that is funny, spooky and entertaining at the same time, then you know that the trick must be great. Ghostwriter is all of that, and more.

Effect: A spectator selects a card out of the deck of playing cards. The selection is sandwiched between two blank slates. A white pencil is waved over the slates. Wonder of wonders, when the slates are opened, a message is now written (by an invisible hand) that says, "The name of the card is Ace of Clubs". But wait, the selected card was the Ten of the Hearts. Has something gone wrong? No, for when the magician cleans the slate with a cloth, part of the writing remains, and now everyone can plainly see the words: "Ten of Hearts"!

Chinese Sticks - T27 - 2nd hand

This is pre-owned item. Picture is of actual item

Original box and English Instructions.

Originally released in the 1970's. This appears to be an early set as the instructions are on very thin paper and the tassels appear a litlle faded with age.

There are many kinds of chinese sticks on the market. But the superior version of Tenyo beats them all with its smooth working and attractive design.

The magician shows two chinese sticks. A string with a tassel hangs from each stick - one string being longer than the other. By pulling downwards on the shorter string, the longer string becomes shorter, as if they were joined together. The sticks are then seperated at the front making the audience believe the strings pass around the other ends. The magician now completely seperates the sticks and still the strings interact with each other, through empty space!

Sticks work perfectly and it is generally in good condition for its age, the two very small side flaps on the lid of the box are missing but main flap intact.
