Hosted a dinner the other night and we decorated the table with "crackers" (tube with twisted ends, pull the ends and they pop, inside is a fortune, paper hat and novelty gift). These ones contained mini magic tricks. One contained a micro flash dice that worked, another a micro set of cups and balls the same color and shape as the Tenyo ones (have an idea for these) and one a micro version of clean cut that used a piece of "rope" the size of a shoelace. Amazingly this worked as well. I realize these are not authorized Tenyo items but was suprised to see these in cheap crackers.

Opened the remaining crackers and one contained a very cute minature dice bomb. The die from the Tenyo version just fits in this minature version. Looks very cool when it explodes in this tiny jar.

I actually was given one of these very crackers at a New Year's Day party yesterday!

I saw the mini clean cut yet mine contained a fairly lame set of multiplying pool balls the size of gum balls.

Those balls are actually the perfect size to use as load balls for the tiny set of cups and balls... Smile

Opened the last one and it contained a tiny Ultra Tube.... Ok that was a joke Smile

Where did you get these John? I need to ask the host where they came from. I think he may have said Costco.

My wife found them at a Winners store, this is basically the Canadian sister to your Marshalls. My local store is sold out, as usual most stores blow out all of thier Holiday stuff super cheap after Christmas.

This is the company.... Www.celebrationcrackers.co.uk

The host of the party just told me that he got them either from Home Goods or Cost Plus World Market. Sounds like a World Market item.

They don't ship to the US, but I found a friend in the UK who was able to obtain one for me.

Glad you tracked one down Richard.

I don't think that is the same set as I have teevtee, although it looks to contain a mini Zone Infinity which is cool. If you order a set I will trade you another set of multiplying balls for that Zone Infinity... Smile

These might be the actual tricks, though the cracker itself is way different then what I had. Also no multiplying balls (darn).

Yes those are the tricks. They also make an eight cracker version with a more formal black and white design which is what I had. The two missing tricks are the balls and a two card monte... I imagine we are probally the only three on here thst give a d#%& about this... Smile

Don't undersell it John. There may be hundreds of mini Tenyo knock off / Christmas Cracker fans just lurking, dying to know what's next.

Or maybe not.

Sorry Richard, I should have mentioned that. I was posting just for the photos.
