Siegfried and Roy’s Pocket Magic

Thanks in no small part to the wonderful site at I remembered Siegfried and Roy’s Pocket Magic.

When I was really little, this stuff really blew my mind. So naturally I begged my parents for things such as Pocket Magic and while I don’t remember the exact circumstances of how I got the set, after seeing the commercial linked up above I remembered that I did have it.

And I was terrible at it.

The only thing I got to work at all was the card/coin drop box thing. And even that was tough to do. The rabbits? I think I liked soaking the foam in water more than the trick.

Clearly, I gave up a promising career in magic. Sorry, Siegfried. Sorry, Roy.
