Review: Wonderbox by SansMinds

The claim for this effect is that any small object (that can fit into a card box) can be produced from a card case that appears to be full of cards.

The gimmick is well printed and the method works. Unfortunately, it is hard to envisage the context and more importantly when this can and should be used in a full routine.

The main reasons being that the gimmicked card box cannot be examined, and that the real cards cannot be in the box before the effect.

What this means is that some form of deck switch is needed. A very rudimentary deck switch is taught, which I would not recommend.

This is not helped by the misleading trailer which should not be relied upon. Some of the productions shown cannot be done (e.g. producing a cat) and some just do not make sense (e.g the production of an omni deck using this method is redundant).

It is also suggested that objects slightly larger than the card box can also be produced, but you would then not be able to look into the box! The handling for this suggestion is much too cozy and angly to be practical.

This seems to be more an under developed idea rather than a fully worked out piece. Perhaps a creative magician may be able to run with this and come up with something more useful. Until then, this is unnecessary. Save your money.
