"Turn regular playing cards into CELEBRITY faces!"

"LOOKALIKE is a super fun celebrity/superhero reveal on a picture card."

Imagine being able to change a picture card so that it turns into a celebrity image that your spectator is merely THINKING OF!

This is LOOKALIKE!   A brand new effect where a playing card miraculously changes and can be fully examined!

Watch it performed here:

Unlike other similar effects, this includes not one but FIVE DIFFERENT images you can use (Elvis, Michael Jackson, Ed Sheeran, Marilyn Monroe, and Batman).

You get 30 cards, which means you're provided with enough to last you forever (if reusing them), but also enough to give away as a souvenir if you wanted to leave them with a lasting memento!

Learn both the Sleight and Sleight-Free handlings, perfect for beginner to expert skill levels!

So don't double what you see.   We already doubled it to save you the trouble!

WEBSITE BACK ONLINE - Crazy 24 hours!


"It's a good thing my head is shaved, or else my hair would be completely pulled out!" - Jeff Mash

So yesterday, around 8:00pm PST, we had a longtime customer contact us via the MJM Facebook Chat to inform us that our website was down!

PANIC MODE set in! 

But when WE signed online to check things out, we saw everything completely fine.  No problems whatsoever.   So immediately, we assumed it was a customer-browser issue.

NOPE!  Long story short, someone who works at the domain registrar company had suspended the name, and they told us it would take TWO DAYS to restore it.

In the meantime, no one could see our website outside of our local network!

My heart SANK.   How could this be happening, especially during our largest BLACK FRIDAY SALE of the year?!

I  made multiple phone calls.  I spoke with multiple people.   Everyone gave us different answers.

FINALLY.......I spoke with someone who actually knew what they were doing.   They were able to get us back online shortly before midnight.

In total, it looks like there was an 8+ hour period where our website was down.   In fact, it probably looked like this image here (click link to see).

So if you still happen to see that image when coming to our website, I need you to do the following.


1.  Try to refresh your webpage, or even try from another device.  Sometimes, a device can cache (or save) webpages you've been to, and if you happened to visit while the page was down, then it might be reloading the same incorrect page even if the problem is fixed.    Using a different device may help rule out that being the issue.

2.  If you still have problems, then see if this temporary link works:

3.  If that doesn't work, try this other temporary link:

4.  If you still have problems, immediately contact me.   First try to contact us by responding to this email.   If that doesn't work (meaning it bounces back with some kind of error), then you can reach us through the Facebook page ( or send us a message on Instagram (

Hopefully things are back to normal for everyone, and we are definitely seeing normal activity on our website right now.   We really depend on our amazing customers to continue to support us, because we are a family owned company and issues like this really hit us hard.

We're just thankful that it was resolved so quickly!



We started with well over 1,000 items in our huge Black Friday Sale!    Everything from custom designed playing cards to magic tricks are 50% off!

Take a look:

Sale expires in about 10 days so keep coming back  while our supply lasts!

"Learn how to VANISH your entire CARD BOX! Perfect OPENER to your magic!"


"The card box literally DISAPPEARS into thin air INCHES away from your spectator!"

Once you see this, you're going to want it!   This is the perfect OPENER for your magic!

Most magicians begin their card tricks by taking out a box of cards, and then removing the cards from it.

Don't be like most magicians!

Instead, just make the box disappear and start your performance with a piece of visual magic!

Check out CASE DISMISSED by Mark Mason:

  • It is visually stunning!
  • Super easy to perform
  • Resets in a few seconds
  • Magnetically locks

Choose the color deck you perform with and purchase using these special links below:



If purchasing Case Dismissed above, you may also want to consider picking up REBOXED!   You can take the deck of cards and then visually pushed them through a solid card box!

Then open the card box to remove the cards and begin performing!

Watch if performed here:

Both of these effects (Reboxed and Case Dismissed) are fantastic all by themselves........but you can combine the two if you wished, leading to some powerful magic combinations!

Order Reboxed in either RED or BLUE color:



Just a reminder that we have over 1,000 brand new items on our HUGE BLACK FRIDAY SALE!

"A Color Changing Deck you will actually USE!"

"I perform this for over 10 years and it's still one of my favorite effect to perform when someone asks me for a trick."

"This is a 10 out of 10 for me!" - Jeff (MJM Magic)

Nothing is quite as powerful as a good COLOR CHANGING trick.   You're going to love "The Kicker Deck" because it's so versatile.

You have the  spectator FREELY CHOOSE a card from a blue Bicycle deck.   No Forcing involved.  

You then sandwich that card between two other cards.   With a magical gesture, you cause that card to CHANGE COLORS into a red Bicycle card!

(This is where most tricks stop......but the best is yet to come).

You take out the red bicycle card and show that it changes color a SECOND TIME (into ANY color or deck that you normally use).  

(This really catches people off-guard.......they don't even  see it coming).

You take their card, put it on top of the deck, and then cause the ENTIRE DECK to change into that matching color or deck!


Amazing, right?!

Consider the following:

  • This effect is less than $20.00!
  • There's no flap, no latex, no magnets, and  no thread involved!
  • This is customizable to your favorite deck!  Have the card change into any deck you prefer to use!
  • Card is freely selected, so it can be a different card every time you perform the effect!

We expect this to sell quickly so get your orders in now from our special link below!

"PERSPECTIVE - Visual best seller made better in TWO ways!"


"Change the perspective of a ripped Monoply bill not only once but TWICE."

If you really want to mess with people's minds, then you should definitely play with their PERSPECTIVE!

Take a Monopoly bill, rip it in half, and then show that the bills were actually two different sizes!   Plus, this 2.0 version allows you to make it shrink a second time!

Watch the trailer:

Not only does this come with 20 ready to go bills for you to perform immediately, but you also have the ability to print up new bills (as many as you need), so you NEVER HAVE TO PURCHASE REFILLS!

(We especially love that aspect!)

You not only will get access to the 2.0 Version of Perspective, but you will get access to the original version as well!

And remember:

  • Change the perspective of a ripped Monoply bill not only once but TWICE.
  • This advancement of the 2021 best seller can also now be really teared into 2 parts.
  • Includes PDF file to download as many bills as you want (no refills!) plus 20 ready-to-go specially designed bills.

"NEW - Apprentice (Beginner) Magic for UNDER $10.00!"


"These are PERFECT GIFTS for any beginner in magic."

With Christmas around the corner (basically), now is the time to start thinking about gifting magic to the next generation.

Our new APPRENTICE magic products are designed for the beginner in mind.   They take CLASSIC effects, given them a facelift, and rebranded them with up to date VIDEO INSTRUCTIONS and a full scripted routine to help perform them.

ALL ITEMS UNDER $10.00, so it's a great value!!

Check out the newest Apprentice products released TODAY!



One of the first magic tricks I ever performed, it's still fun to perform!   Take a real, ordinary piece of paper, and magically turn it into REAL MONEY!   Yes, it's 100% real!




Ahhhhh, the ole classic red ball vase!   Super easy to perform, but a great gateway item to get someone interested in magic.    Make a red ball disappear and then reappear in your pocket!  




This one is probably our favorite!   You take a playing card and put it inside a "glass door".   You then take a pencil and push it through the glass and the card.   And yet, despite the card being penetrated, the glass is still completely intact!




This one is the linking rings, except their nice and small.   Easy to learn the routine from the excellent online video instructions that come with it!




Here is a list of our previous released Apprentice items:

THE VAULT - This is a classic magic trick where you DOUBLE YOUR MONEY!  A stack of nickels turns into dimes!  -

THE TIME MACHINE - A self working effect where you predict the time that a spectator randomly chooses! -

THE MUMMY - A great mind reading trick!  Three different color mummies are handled by the spectator.  With your back turned, they secretly put one into the sarcophagus, and you will instantly know which mummy they placed inside! -

THE GHOST - Make a coin disappear and then reappear, just like a ghost in a haunted house! -

MAGIC WAND - This is exactly what every Apprentice level magician needs!  Their own wand! -



Time is ticking down.   We have 600 585 products that are currently 50% off.   These are products that are taking up space on our shelves, and  we need to clear room for upcoming products.

"Could the E-WALLET be the perfect magic wallet for you?"


"A plug-n-play wallet that has different components that work together as one!!"

A wallet for every performance!

I know what you're thinking: not ANOTHER magic wallet!  That was exactly what I thought when I heard about the E-Wallet.

Let's face it, there are hundreds of different magic wallets on the market.   So if you're going to come out with a new wallet, you better bring something new to the table.

This is why E-Wallet is intriguing to us, because that's EXACTLY what Matthew Wright did.

It's not simply a single wallet.  It's actually THREE different wallets in one, each designed to be used by itself or, like a transformer, but together to form a super wallet!

Check out the in-depth video explanation here:

As you can see, you receive a well made product with a TON of video instructions on how to perform with it.

If you don't already own a magic wallet, you should consider picking up the E-Wallet.    Dollar for dollar, you're getting the most bang for your buck.

And if you DO already own a wallet but you're looking at something more versatile, then the E-Wallet is perfect for your collection.


  •     Slim credit card style wallet in high quality leather. Can be used as a peek wallet or a NO palm card to wallet that appears in an envelope.
  •     Also includes specially designed larger back pocket or jacket card to wallet. Also a peek window can be inserted.
  •     The slim wallet can be inserted into the larger wallet making it into a “Mullica style” load for double the possibilities.

Benny was your typical Viking. Strong, tall and courageous, he was the ideal viking in every way, except for one.

You see, Benny couldn’t grow a beard. For all his 30 winters on Earth, he still had just as smooth a face as the day he was born.

This bothered Benny, because when he was out pillaging, nobody took him seriously.

Who is scared of a baby faced warrior that looks like he’s 16?

The final straw for Benny just happened at the last raid. His opponent laughed at him and asked the Vikings to send him a man instead of a boy.

Well, Benny might have slain that warrior for his crass comment, but his confidence was beginning to fade.

So that night, during the rioting, looting and pillaging, Benny got very, very drunk on mead and wandered out into a field.

“Odin!” he yelled. “Why have you forsaken me? Why have you cursed me with this face?”

Benny was surprised to hear an answer back.

“Benny! I have not forsaken you, why do you say such things?”

“Odin, how can I be a feared warrior when I cannot grow a beard? My opponents laugh at me and call me a child! I just wish to grow a beard like yours, one such that all will know me to be a man!”

“Very well,” Odin replied. “As you’ve been a good Viking, I will help you grow your beard… BUT!!!! If you ever cut or shave, I will turn you into an urn!”

“Odin, I would never do that,” Benny replied. “All I’ve wanted my life is to serve you and look like a man!”

“So be it,” Odin said. “But you have been warned.”

Benny passed out into a drunken sleep to awake the next morning.When he awoke, he thought it all a dream until he rubbed his face and where once was smooth skin like a baby’s bottom was now stubble.

“Yes Odin! Thank you! I will not forget our deal!” cried Benny.

By the end of the day, Benny had a respectable shadow on his face.

At the end of the week, Benny’s beard had come in.

At the end of two weeks, Benny’s beard had continued to grow and was now down to his chest.

His life was good, he had the respect of his fellow Vikings, his opponents feared him, and Benny had never been happier.

However, his beard continued to grow at an astonishing rate. At the end of the third week, it had grown to his waist.

His fellow Vikings were muttering about black magic behind his back.

At the end of the month, it was down to his knees, and in order to go into battle, he had to tie it around himself like a belt.

At the end of two months, he could no longer move without the assistance of a wheel barrow to carry his beard in front of him, he could not go into battle, and he his fellow Vikings were sure he was cursed.

Benny was despondent. He began to think to himself about how busy Odin must be. How Odin couldn’t possibly remember the agreement they had. How Odin must have forgotten him, for how else would his beard have continued to grow so much.

Benny couldn’t take it anymore. He took his belt knife, grabbed his long beard and just as soon as his blade parted the first hair on his face…

Poof!!! Benny was turned into an urn.

The moral of this story is: A Benny shaved is a Benny urned.
