Tenyo - Mickey`s Magic Shop

Hi everyone,

Very interesting jigsaw puzzle produced by Tenyo company long time ago. I`m not sure if they are still producing and selling it. Did anyone have this puzzle ? In the pic, some tenyo tricks are hanging on the shelves in the shop. :D

Yes John, thanks for the info. I read it also somewhere in the Magic magazine. It was also the great work of Jamie D. Grant.

Re: Impossible Object : The Inspiring Bottle

Cooooooooool!! Are you going to sell these? It's brilliant. It looks like a clever marking system too. Thanks Simon for the compliment. I appreciate this. I try to sell it locally, the interest was very high at the beginning but as you see this product is a nice to see product but not nice to have ...

Re: Tenyo storing problem:(

I admire your creativity and ingenuity :) I also threw away a lot of my packaging but they were all newer items, no nice early boxes. I tend to keep that sort of thing as I like graphics. I jsut have a safe with all my instructions in. one day I might let the mystic ruby see them but if like him to...

I think I am in the running for the worst display- stuff in boxes and bags, not organized in any logical fashion. I have been to John M's house and his collection is presented beautifully.

Hi Siusiuc, Thanks for sharing this. Looking more detail at your last photo, I saw that most of your Tenyo collection with boxes were opened and cut from the top. You can fold back the top flap and insert it into the box. I think tenyo describe at the back of box packaging. Very clever packaging ide...

Re: Help on vintage magic props

Hi BobD David were right. The first one is the Samurai Sword. Try to find the missing samurai sword, 2 brass rods and the metalic cloth and you are ready to perform it. There was no special gimmick on the sword and messing rods. As long you can find the right size for this trick, you are ready. Plea...
