I Spy

MJM Magic isn't just a business -- we're a family run business, and we LOVE spending time with our family!

The other day, while Brandi was at Target, I had the pleasure of listening to my two daughters play "I Spy" to occupy time. For those who don't know, I Spy is a game where the observer will look at something, and say, "I spy with my little eye, something that's [fill in the blank]." Then the person playing the game will try and guess what that thing is.

Well, my kids were playing it the goofy way. They would basically spy something with their eye and then immediately reveal what they were looking at! What made it especially funny was Katelyn, my 2 year old, who picked the strangest (and sometimes incoherant) things to say.

This is a little long, but as a proud father, I could watch it over and over again! I just wanted to share it with my MJM Magic family online because you guys are all important to me, and your support of our store and products also helps me support my kids below.

VLOG: Update for Little Man by Paul Harris

Look at Paul Harris items right here:

Note from Paul Harris:

Just in case you were wondering, Little Man is alive and well and in the middle of the very complex process of being manufactured. Pieces are being assembled. Finished components are stacking up. Tiny bits of secret stuff are being machined and fabricated. Four very skilled dedicated people are working full time to insure that LM is finished as soon as humanly possible. Sometimes parts are delayed or not available. Sometimes we have to wait in line for a certain bit of machining or mold making to be completed. Sometimes something or other blows up and we have to re-make it. Everything is being done that I and the team can think of to get the little guy out of the shop and into your hands as soon as possible.

Despite all my best smarty pants calculation, There seems to be no known formula for accurately predicting exactly when this process will be completed. All I can promise here is that LM will be finished..and it will be perfect when its done.

Little Man loves you.
All is well,

Blue Rabbit Items are back!

It's been a long time since we did this, but I felt it was time to resurrect our Blue Rabbit specials!
What is a Blue Rabbit Item?

In a nutshell, ask yourself this question: how many times have you seen a BLUE rabbit before? That's right, never....unless you were under the influence of some very powerful hallucinogenic drugs!

Well at MJM Magic, we have some items that we will randomly throw under our New Items section of the store. Like a blue rabbit, these items will be listed at prices that you have never seen! We are talking about things that will be listed at HUGE DISCOUNTS, and only in very small quantities. Once they sell, they will be gone and removed from the site.

Just like a Blue Rabbit, you may THINK you saw it, but it will be gone so fast, you will doubt if it was only in your imagination!

You never know WHEN these little goodies will pop up. We may do many in one day, or wait a week and then throw one on the site! All you have to remember is this:

- Blue Rabbit Item deals are RARE! Once they are listed under the New Items section of our site, you will want to quickly add it to your cart and purchase it, because once it's gone, it is gone.

- Blue Rabbit Item deals are FAST! Don't make the mistake of seeing one and thinking to yourself, "I will add it to my wishlist" or "I will pick this up on the weekend." You may be out of luck if you do that! 95% of all Blue Rabbit items will be listed with a quantity of ONE, so whoever gets it will get the only one and walk away with the deal of a lifetime!

How Do I Find A Blue Rabbit item?

Look under the new items section, or do a search for "BlueRabbit" in our search engine. Or just click HERE to find any remaining items that haven't been scooped up yet.

New Tenyo Magic Items

Hey guys! We just got a new shipment of Tenyo items that we've never carried before. Thought you might like to check them out.


A foam rock is placed on a tray and is seen to lift off of the tray and levitate (about 1”in place). The tray is then moved and does not upset the levitation of the rock. Ingenious little trick that covers all the angles. No zombies, wires or threads, just magic.



Watch it dance in mid-air! This amazing handkerchief will jump around in your hands and fly through the air, completely under your control. No threads are used in this trick, and it is extremely easy to do. The original item by Dusheck – together with many unauthorized copies of this effect has been a continuous best seller at magic shops around the world. You’ll have the handkerchief dancing in no time.



The magician displays a small plastic box and explains that a ghost lives inside. He slides open the drawer and shows the box to be empty. As soon as the box is closed, it suddenly starts to move atop the magician’s outstretched hand, and even stands up without any visible support. Finally, the box opens all by itself, and a message from the ghost magically appears inside the previously empty drawer!


Three coins are borrowed and placed into a plastic case. A small sheet of paper is placed over the coins and the lid is closed. Three pencils are thrust through the case and penetrate the solid coins. When the paper is pulled out, the coins can still be seen where the pencils were inserted. Everything can be examined. Includes case and full routine.



Since the invention of the fantastic Zig Zag Lady Illusion, people have been fascinated with the idea of cutting someone into thirds and restoring them. Now you can carry this pocket size version with you at all times. A normal cigarette is placed into the chamber, chopped into 3 pieces and fully restored.

Off topic: Funny video!

Hey everyone! Every now and then, I like to post personal updates and videos from my family, just to open up and invite you into my world a little bit!

The other day, our youngest daughter (Katelyn) went to go play in our front room. When he hadn't heard her make any noise for a few minutes, my wife got up to investigate. What she found was hilarious! Katelyn had fallen asleep in a SITTING position!

Sorry for the crappy cell phone video but it was the only thing we could get at the time. I got a new HD Flip Camera coming soon though!

Who needs an Ultracinese?

Anyone here miss out on getting an Ultracinese when they first came out? Probably most of you did, since these have been harder to acquire than a four-legged leprechaun!

Well the good news is that we just got our hands on THREE of them and they will be shipping out on Monday the 12th. They will go to the first three people to purchase it, so don't miss this opportunity to get one. They are only available about once every month or longer, and there's no telling when more will be back in our store.

Contact us if you have any further questions!


Ultracinese may be one of THE most amazing PK effects ever. Imagine you pick up a nut and bolt (both may be borrowed), thread the nut on the bolt, and upon your command the nut slowly starts threading itself off of the bolt as if caused by some ghostly action. You can reverse directions upon your command and the nut can wind back up on the bolt. You immediately give the nut and bolt (no switching) to the spectator to keep as a souvenir. Now get this... no thread, no magnets, no reels, no rubberbands, nothing attached to the nut or bolt, nothing hidden in your hand, no switching, no kidding. Sounds to good to be true, sounds impossible, sounds like hype? It is not... it is Ultracinese effect created by Leonardo Milanesi with the support of the Netmagicas company. Ultracinese is one of those rare effects where the method will not disappoint but will inspire you and make you feel like you are doing REAL magic. You will do this for your own amusement and amazement.

There are many other uses only limited by your imagination. Imagine having one card slowly crawl along in sympathy to another card you openly push along, imagine a deck of cards creeping out of it's case to be immediately examined...

Ultracinese is as close to real magic as it gets.

Includes the hand made gimmick that works on a simple AA battery (not included), thorough written instructions, and a bonus DVD giving handling details.

People Keep Hitting the MJM Lottery!

Wow, what a great month March was, and it's already continuing into April! I am not just talking about our numbers and how great business is doing (which is also going awesomely). I'm mainly referring to our Order Lottery and all the WINNERS that have reaped the benefits of shopping with us!

As you may (or may not) know, anyone who shops with MJM Magic has a random chance of getting a $25.00 gift certificate which I cover out of my own pocket. It's a way to make shopping with us fun and exciting!

We launched it back in early February, and we saw our first (and only winner) for that month on February 6th. Just when I was beginning to think that the program I wrote was too tough to win, BOOM-SHAKA-LAKA! It starts to rain winners in March!

In March, we had a record FIVE winners alone, and two of them happened on the same day! And so far in April, we've already had one lucky winner!

What's great is that in many cases, the orders they were placing were lower than $25.00, which means that the prize they won was greater than the amount they spent!

Here are the winners thus far:

02/06/10 - Jerry Williams from North Carolina
03/03/10 - Jose Arango from California
03/09/10 - Josh Mosher from Pennsylvania
03/16/10 - Ryan Hakenson from Florida
03/29/10 - Keith Breen from Connecticut
03/29/10 - Emily Hutchens from North Carolina
04/01/10 - Jon Fenton from California

That's seven lucky people that have gotten a total of $175 from yours truly, just for shopping here! Will you be next? I can't wait to find out!

Keep smiling,
- Jeff
