I just got a shim**d quarter for this effect. I like the way it works better than my half dollar mag***ic coin.
This is a fun trick and gets a variety of reactions, all good.

What do you think of Letterman's reaction? He says, " That's among the stupidest things I've ever seen!" Is this a positive reaction or a negative reaction?

Good question, proto. Though there is a little magical element due to the concealment of the little hand until you are ready to have it appear, I certainly consider this to be more of a gag than a magic trick. I think Letterman's response was positive, because here he was expecting to see some incredible finale, and instead he saw this. As I recall, he was certainly laughing.

It does get a good reaction.

I just discovered that the strongest connection between the hand and the coin occurs when I use the mag****c coin that is a part of my "Triple Threat" set. Neo is that much stronger.

Yeah, I always get a laugh when I perform it. I'm still wondering what the new one is going to be like.

I have been playing around with different coins for this effect. I want to know that the coin will stay attached when I pull the hand away quickly.

My latest favortie is the Canadian Looney. It is light and really holds on to the hand.

I performed this a number of times at a bar/restaurant recently. A lot of fun!

I am now working on losing the "package" after the vanish. My goal is to make what appears to be a creepy/funny gag into a magical complete vanish of everything.

I bought two of these and am disappointed at the quality of the gimmick.

The first one I bought has an issue with the insert adhesive coming loose. I contacted them and they sent me a replacement for free. No issues with it.

Mine are discolored on the back of the hand where the M***** is located and part of it is showing so it looks like a large black dot. And that is the two that I bought. I contacted Ammar about this but a lady Bonnie said she would pass the email on to Mike but a week later still no reply...

Are all the "Little Hands" left hands or is just the one I received?

Are you right handed? I am, and is very hard for me to control the prop using the left hand.

Bambu, I am left handed but I just played around with it as if it were a right handed model. I think that when you get the motion down, it will work for you in the left hand. Use the covering hand as a top brace to control the movement of the little hand. I think it will take more work, but you will get it down.
Let me know how it goes!

I am right handed and have no problem with the effect. I think a right handed one wouldnt feel right.

Maybe Bob Farmer would step in and let us know if the new version is ready for release?
