Look at my toy!



I just love it, when a toy is sold as magic trick. This flow toy doesn't hide the fact, but magicians will still buy it. That's why it has an add banner over at the Green Monster. That reminds me of Jeff McBride's techno attempt.

This clip at least looks better than the two-cane approach. The problem is that the dancing cane is like yo-yo's, so fun to play with that people forget to make it look like Magic. Less would be more in this case. A lot less.

It's a very nice looking toy, I'll give it that. I might buy one, just to play around with it.

Funny toy! On http://www.usemeplz.com I saw something similar, but there was a video with LED-ball, it is also interesting))

This dude's routine is embarassing.. it looks EXACTLY like the very thing it is.. a stick on a string.

the dude looks like he's bored.. or terrified that he only knows one "move"

you want a REAL dancing cane?

Lol wow, you guys have some real hate for this toy. Did you ever get pissed off about tickle me elmo? True the video leaves something to be desired. So Mike are you telling me this guys product sucks so I should buy yours? What makes your dancing cane other than a stick on a string? Lol I love this blog, people get so riled up.

Since when was Tickle Me Elmo marketed as a magic product?
