I don't recall where I first heard about Note Pad Surprise, but it interested me.
Basically a small magic drawing board in that you draw the face and the eyes and mouth move, but with a twist: you can tear the picture off and give it to someone. That aspect of it really had me curious. According to the website for it, "No tricky moves or switches!" - that was important to me because I learned a long time ago, sleight of hand is not my thing.
I also liked that it was something small and pocket-able to carry for a bit of impromptu vent (it uses any standard 4 x 6 notepad you can buy anywhere).
I was recently able to acquire new, the newer version, Note Pad Surprise 2.0, on ebay for a good price and satisfy my curiosity. After reading the simple instructions and playing with it a bit, I've got to say I like it. Definitely small enough to be easy to carry, and the "trick" is easy to do, even for someone like me. While not something I will use every day, I can see it's potential so I will be keeping this handy little vent prop around.

There have been other threads about this in the magic section of the Café, here's links to those for anyone who would like to read more reviews about it - some liked it, some didn't;

I never leave home without this. Magical and entertaining. The rubber bands need to be replaced often.

Yes, the ones that come with it look a little thin, but I know I an buy replacements that should hold up much better.
