Thanks for sharing that link to Angelo’s article. He is right on and certainly someone eligible to comment on Tenyo due to his rich history in Tenyo magic. Not only because of his Tenyo knowledge but because he has created some terrific Tenyo released effects.

“What’s Next” which is an older and discontinued Tenyo release is certainly qualified to be used in a professional performance. A fantastic routine with a sucker climax and has the appearance of a prop which does not look anything like a toy.

I have always said that even though many Tenyo tricks look like toys, they are still worthwhile for performance purposes. Why? Because your audience wants to see what you are going to do with them! The toy looking prop taps into their curiosity and gathers their interest. Maybe they are wondering what that “toy” does but that’s okay.

By the way, all Tenyo tricks are not easy to learn and some actually require a great deal of practice to master. Further, many Tenyo tricks are suitable for fooling not only laymen but magicians as well.

Congrats to Angelo on the Vanishing Inc. article!

A good read, thank you!

By the way, here's Angelo's super clean performance of Tenyo's Magical Vintage Disney Poster restoration:
