If any one has or remembers this packet trick of mine from several years ago (its been out of print), Meir Yedid plans to release it in the next week or so with parlor sized cards. Perfect for restaurant workers or house party kid shows.

This is the old video dem, I'm sure he'll put one up with the larger cards when he advertises it.

Meir said he's going to shoot a new video and it might be up by next weekend when he sends out his new newsletter. Currently on his site the old ad is up and its showing as out of stock. I'm guessing the price might change but we'll see, we never discussed that.

That's really nice Paul. 

I don't do kid shows any more (and there are very few young children in my family) but I like this a lot - I will probably get one!

Meir has the new video clip and new cards advertised now. The larger cards are $20.

I'm currently sorting stuff out to pack for the S.A.M Convention in Orlando and found four of the original poker sized sets I didn't know I had. If anyone wants one of those let me know ASAP before I pack them away. So far as I know, no-one has any of those left. These are $15.

Paul, I almost took you up on one of the poker-size sets, but after watching the new video I like the parlor-size card, so I am ordering a set from Meir. Looks like a wonderful effect - Can't wait to try it out!

Don't blame you, I think parlor size was the way to go rather than redoing the poker size. Still fits in an inner pocket but better for small kid shows.

Paul,

I liked this trick so much that about 3 months ago I immediately bought two sets from Meir when he first advertised them on his site.  The ultimate distribution of same?  Two options:

1.  My granddaughter is into beginning magic..especially card tricks and I'm wondering if she can learn and handle the card moves.
2.  If not, I don't care.  I'll have pair and a spare.

I can't lose on this deal. (grin)

Mike

It is a GREAT trick. And it's not just for kids - adults love it. I will soon be ordering a second set. (The cards are of excellent quality and will last for awhile, but one of my cats managed to knock a couple of mine to the floor overnight and one of them is de-laminating. Damn cat!) If you haven't considered this trick, I encourage you to take another look. It really is great.

Mike, hope your granddaughter enjoys performing the trick!

You can't beat a win, win situation lol.

I only wish I could get my grandson interested in magic.

Anthony and Paul,

My granddaughter has always been interested in magic.  She just recently turned 13-YO but she has been doing magic (intermittently off and on) since she was 8 or 9.

She is a very bright young girl.  In fact, when she was only 10 and I was baby-sitting her, after a few easy self-working card tricks, I taught her Simon Aronson's Self-Control Lie Speller (using some very easy mnemonics I had developed for the trick)...and she picked it up almost instantly.  She had the trick down on her 2nd attempt and, just at that time, her dad walked in to pick her up and take her home.  He asked what she was doing and she replied "Learning a new trick...would you like to see it?"  He, of course, did and she proceeded to perform the trick flawlessly...and blew him away.  With pride in his voice and a few tears forming in his eyes, he exclaimed  "Baby, what a great job.  I am sooo proud of you."  And he was.  (Heh-Heh)

Hence, I'm thinking that she might be able to pick up the Elmsley Count and successfully be able to perform Hare Raising Hats.  That said,  What a great trick (Hare Raising Hats) to use to learn her first real magic sleight.

Mike

That's great to hear, Mike. If she can get the EC down it'll open up a whole new world of possibilities 😉

This is an easy and fun routine, and the parlor-size cards are colourful and good quality.  Here's my review of Hare Raising Hats:
