Hi All, does anyone own or have used this prop?
It looks fantastic on YouTube but before paying out my hard earned money I would like to know if it is as good and as fast as it looks!
Thanks
James

There are lot good versions of this out there. As a rule, Tora's stuff does not hold up in the long run. It may have a great price and look good but just not built for a lot of use.
Chalet used to make a good one. Smokey Mt. Magic and Fairchild Magic all make good stuff.

I will dig it out tomorrow and get a few photos and measurements. It was usually used with 2 doves and changed to a rabbit.

I wish Chalet would start making stuff again or release the rights to good builders who would do justice to it.

You are lucky James, for asking questions first about purchasing Tora's products. I learned the hard way by purchasing the product first. I had no warnings. I will never forgive myself for making the biggest mistakes in my life when purchasing magic items. Everything mentioned above about Tora is true.

The more amazing I saw was Dan Birch's.
The transformation looks like trick photography!
I don't know wich builder made it for him.

I got the pictures taken but I have not had a chance to upload them yet. This box is absolutely mint. I bought it and never used it. It was still wrapped in the newspapers from George.

Get this...the paper is dated 1978. They are complaining about gas rising to 94 cents a gallon. My how times have changed. Now we feel lucky if it stays under $4 a gallon.

100% true, tora is not the best quality out there his products are made for few uses only,
I did the same mistake when I bought it,and spent 2 weeks repairing it and modifiying to make it more smooth

Fairchild and Rich Hill both make quality Doves to Rabbits
The magic is not in our sleights and illusions, but instead in our ability to bring love and joy.
