Sam -

If I recall correctly, the original popaway wands were made by Supreme Magic, a company that went out of business long ago.

Google/Bing/search U.S. Toys Magic Division. (South Kansas City Missouri, but just over the state line to Kansas-USA)
They used to have quite a few Supreme props.

To find the U.S.Toy magic division, use the ustmagic.com URL and go to General Magic > Children's Entertainment and you'll find the "Pop-Away Wand" listed there- currently $10.00. If you go looking for the "Pip Pop Wand", who knows what you'll end up with!

You will have to contact them specifically about the Supreme item you are looking for. It won't be listed in the catalog.


Be safe, well and creative.

I've had a Pop-Away Wand and also a Squeek Wand, from Supreme, for years. They are matching, so you can switch them out. I use them both in my show... the Pop-Away wand the most. I made the modification of gluing a rope to the end caps, as per David Ginn's suggestion.

I think Supreme also made a third wand that matched the other two, that had a divider in the middle, and included spring snakes which could pop out of both ends. I never did get my hands on one of those. (I have other wands with spring snakes inside, though.)

Anyhow, don't forget that Abbott's Magic also sells their Long-John Wand, which they call a Pop Away Wand. It already has the cord attached to the ends, and from the video, it appears as though the caps fit fairly tight. Smaller diameter. It's not the same, but somewhat similar.

I know Trixie Bond used to sell them. Get in touch with her.

BIGmagiclV -

Trixie Bond is the person making and selling the NEW version of the Popaway Wand. Not the original version. (I haven't seen the new version, so I'm not making any comments about it... Sam was making a comment about it.)
