I do not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death my right to say "scr*w you" if you persist. [Voltaire Smile]

wouldnt be too bad if you didn't have to control the chosen card to 2 specific locations. Smile

I find it interesting, although the method is not new. I prefer Tamariz' routine as being impromptu, but it seems very hard to master.

Really, I don't believe it has anything to do with the location, I guess he wanted the mouse to stop toward the middle of his card spreads. I have met a lot of magicians who find it difficult to do a deck spread as well, so some practice on the basics of card handling is required for this trick. I never found cutting a deck of cards that difficult.

This looks to be a different method then the little Robot Louis Tannen's Magic use to sell in the 1980's. The toy Robots are not made anymore, but their are some alternatives toys that may work just fine. The Robot was my favorite, though.

Dick Koornwinder's Kar is my all time favorite toy finding card revelation and card discovery.

Then there is Don Alan Ranch Bird that is a lot of fun to do, with a surprise ending that always puzzles the spectator.

Just to confirm, you do not have to control the card at all.
However, aesthetically, you may prefer to arrange the position centrally.

I have this, and as BrainMagic said, all age groups really enjoy the prop.

We saw this at the Magic LIVE convention, and while we have seen many effects that have an object pass over a spread deck to find a selected card, this one seems to appeal to the widest variety of spectators. We were most surprised about the variety of performance ideas that are included. This is a great effect and Hocus Pocus is proud to carry this item.

It is available and in stock for immediate shipment from Hocus Pocus, order yours here:

Picked one up at magi fest. Nice but probably $10 overpriced IMO.

I used to do a thing called Wonder Pet which got terrific reactions, WAY in excess of the skill level. So much that I almost felt guilty. People LOVED the little dog. But it was a piece of cr@p, quality wise and soon broke. This will, I hope, be a worthy replacement.

Wish I'd purchased this instead of Factory Blanks. My daughter's little posse would love it. Any chance Penguin carries it in the future? Prefer to buy from them with their free shipping.

It is very wise NOT to call your mouse Klaus! If there is a teenager among the spectators and he googles “Klaus mouse magic” on his smartphone, the site of the magic dealer who sells this trick is staring him in the face. (try it yourself)
The advice above applies to every trick that you bought. Never use the commercial name of the trick in your presentation.

It seems a few posters have this and like it. Any more reviews, any in depth reviews? Is the gimmick well made? Will it last for a long time? I'm very interested in this but it seems pricy enough I want to be sure of the quality and usability before I pull the trigger.

Gimmick is very well made,should last indefinitely with a little care. You can easily refresh the deck as well.

I'm interested in this lovely piece but was wondering if it needs to be done on a table cloth or close up mat? If someone who has this could let me know that would help me to decide if this is right for me.

Thanks!

You can do it everywhere on every surface as long as you can make a spread with the cards on it.
The mouse runs not on the surface but on the cards.
