Is there any way those of us not on Instagram can get to see the post?

Penguin is listing Flat Pack as "discontinued." That's odd.

Hi,

Itís because Murphys magic have completely sold out. The response to this product has been incredible. We had to get the manufacturer back into production but obviously there will be a lead time for this. Once the dealers have sold the stock they are holding, the people that have missed out will have to wait a little while for the next batch. Hopefully not too long though

It's just strange that they say "discontinued" and not just "out of stock."

"This product has been discontinued. If you are the manufacturer of this item please contact Penguin to help us re-stock."

To me, "discontinued" has a negative connotation. If I were you, I would get in touch with them right away and have this corrected.

Can't wait to get my hands on one!

Very good point. Big difference. Only Penguin could cock up on this level.

Thanks for the heads up Iíve raised it with the team at Murphys. Iíve just looked back at the screw. Shot I took the other day when it first went out of stock and it said something completely different.

Maybe discontinued was correct then. You wouldnít believe the amount of money Iíve saved through ignoring the hype crap and waiting for honest user reviews.

Really sorry to hear you feel this way about it. The nature of the gimmick means

a) itís going to look like a folded up card box because thatís essentially what it is.
b) what youíve described as snapping is inevitable but it takes a couple of minutes to rectify (as described in the explanations) and the more you use the gimmick the less this will happen as you become more familiar with handling it.

My advice would be to stick with it and youíll get to grips with it and realise that actually what appears fragile will last a long time. Totally understand if you decide you donít want to persevere it as everyone is different.

Why should we have to repair it after half an hour of playing around with it?
You know Iím not even going to resell it why should anyone else be stuck with it.
Garbage in my opinion

I cancelled my order with Penguin because it was only available in a blue card case...Are there plans to introduce RED? I would also like to hear what others say about how fragile the gimmick is. More specifically, is this well-suited for strolling or would it wear too quickly?

Jason,
I appreciate you standing behind your product this way. But magicians these days want the trick to require no work on their part. Iím sure Iíll be flamed for this... but dear lord, can anyone say snowflake.

Great product. No issues with it from a seasoned magician. Keep up the good work.
