Yes you are right Richard because i have been searching this quite long time but the Rabbit still hiding for me :) Now my question is how many pieces were made and why it is hard to find even a used one? :(

Newer Tenyo items such as this become hard to find depending upon how many runs they did. For example, there are plenty of Tenyo items not made anymore that are fairly eash to find, and that's usually because the did multiple runs at the factory. "Lucky Rabbit" is a great trick, and I'm not sure why they would have done only one or two runs. I think it might be difficult to find a used one because if the prop gets separated from the instrutions, it is not easy to locate the gimmick! People might think it's broken and just chuck it.

That trick is Tenyo's answer to a very old principle and effect. When I was a kid, I bought the SS Adams Hindu Cones. It probably dates back to even before that release.

The method is simple and ingenious!

The trick appears in French magic sets 50 years before Adams existed.

They don't make those anymore but you can find one for auction from time to time. I wouldn't pay more than $10 for it in very good condition. Sometimes the paint is chipped on the cones or the gimmick is missing. Ask questions before you bid.

I haven't find Lucky Rabbit yet but i just won (New)Hindu Cones at one auction site. Thanks for mentioning Hindu Cones here (I.M. Magician) I haven't heard about this trick before. I'm very happy :D

Lucky Rabbit is a lot better than the Hindu Cones! Keep looking.

Once i receive the item then i will let you know. I love mentalism effect. I have the very affordable plastic trick called ''Psycho Caps'' maybe it is the same performance of Hindu Cones. :)

It's surprising that they have become so difficult to find.

Maybe you could include one in each deluxe edition of your book. :)

There are so many no longer made and discontinued items of Tenyo but i often see them at eBay but why this item is so rare to be found? Maybe it was made for Collectors Items only very limited pieces? :(
