The Best Hippity Hop Rabbits
It is great to see Chance Wolf continuing to produce amazing magic after ten years. Chance produces very high quality magic that is both performable and collectable.
This little darling has to be the best version of Hippity Hop Rabbits (or Hares) ever. Better than the Collector’s Workshop version or the many others I have seen.
And finally he’s made the covers have a reason for living – they are now rabbit hutches. Everything about this effect is superb and mechanism works perfectly.
This is the one to get for sure.

Colorful and fun!
This is a Colorful and fun prop. Just what a kids show prop should be. "chewed gum" goes in, it gets mixed, pulling it like taffy. You crank the sides with a loud clackety clack then the alarm goes off and big colorful balls spill out and fill the chamber.
Alot of fun for kids, and adults get a kick out of it too. The prop is made with solid colored plastic panels so there is no paint to scratch, if the sides get marked you can’t tell and a little focused heat will soften the sides and the gouge disappears. The tube is painted, but it’s a well done thick heavy duty paint and takes wear well.
Now even though this has a presentation built in, it can be used for many different presentations. the plastic balls can be switched out and you can turn chewed gum into real gum and hand it out (funny!) or forget the gum entirely. I’ve often used this prop when I needed a utility square circle production. just come up with another meaning for "ABC" painted on the front (this trick is as easy as ABC! ~ actual meaning is Already been chewed, referring to the chewed gum you use in the original routine)
The load chamber is huge and the "square" of the square circle shrinks in size ( an amazing idea and method!) so when you dump your load out it seems to fill the chamber! and the bell on the side helps to emphasize the magic moment in any kind of presentation.

Wonderful Wolf Magic
This is a wonderful and well made prop. It looks incredible and is high quality.. I’ve enjoyed performing this effect at home for friends. The way it works is very nice, mechanical. There are a few downfalls however. (without giving anything away) A- if no ring is removed it is the same as if the center ring has been removed, so you have to ensure the spectator removes a coin. B – Difficult to perform in a darkened environment or if you have bad eyesight. C- the small box needs to be on a flat surface of some kind when the ring is removed. The ring can not be removed from the box while it is in the spectators hand.
Other than that, this is a wonderful piece of magic and I still recommend it. I’ve brought it with me when table hopping at a restaurant and it’s worked very well. The rings that come with the effect were beautiful. I did replace them with cheaper ones when taking this table hopping however. It also works with bits of paper notes or currency bills.

Beautiful, Clever, Flawless, and Great Value too!
There have been plenty of positive reviews about this latest item from The Wolf Man, so when my unit arrived I was eager to see what all the fuss was about! So often in magic you get disappointed because an effect almost never lives up to your expectations. The good news is when it comes to Chance Wolf this is rarely the case and with Rings of Truth you will be 100% delighted! It is a true beauty. I spent a few minutes trying to look for the gaff when I first received it and nothing was obvious at all. Just a really nice box. I finally broke down and read the instructions … and thought: "Wow this is so much better than I expected!" (In fact I used some stronger words, but this is the gist of what I was thinking!)
The mechanism, based on an old, unpublished Jack Hughes idea, is very clever and works beautifully every time. You can use any rings, or coins, or bills – pretty much anything that will fit in the three slits in the box. It comes with some very fine looking rings, and no expense was spared in creating the whole outfit. First class all the way. There are no electronics or magnets and the mechanism is unique as far as I can tell – I’ve owned quite a few boxes that perform a similar function and none of them get even close to this method.
The other great thing is that reset is a snap and it can be done right in front the spectators without arousing suspicion. Try as you will look for clues you will not find them.
Chance Wolf and the team at Wolf’s Magic continue to amaze and amuse me and I look forward to many new items over the next few years.
A real beauty for Collectors and Performers everywhere. Highly Recommended!

Another Big Collectible from the Wolf
This is one electromechanical marvel from Wolf’s Magic. The frame looked elegant, but simple, when I first examined it out of the box, but the surprising eye opener is when I removed the magnetic backing to the frame and marveled at the clean, etched grooves and spaces where the mechanics are blended into the frame itself. Looking at the works turned out, for me, to be more interesting than the effect itself. Reminded me of the same experience I had with CW’s Silver Odyssey II, another apparatus where the workings is much more fascinating than the effect, but, don’t get me wrong, it is still strong magic as is the case with For All Eternity.
OK, I definitley found out, and Chance stated the same on his site, that this is NOT a close-up item. Some distance and dim lighting would help at the crucial moment due to the nature of the method used. Fortunately, this is the perfect atmosphere for this effect. It is an eerie and haunting story that surrounds this effect and it clearly needs the right tone for a memorable magical experience.
The set comes complete with all that is needed for the performance with extra images, extra "something", brass tray, candle holder, candle, and a DVD that thoroughly goes through the routine. Also included are digital images to reprint the sepia photo in the frame and a great music track to bring it all into one elegant presentation.
Though not strictly a "limited edition" item, these are serially numbered. Now, I was "fooled" as I could not find the usual serial number plate for my apparatus as in past Wolf collectibles, but Chance cleared that one with a response to my e-mail (should have seen the DVD first as it is explained it in there). The serial number is on the DATE! #1 starts with January 1, 1890. I got #4 (see last image – January 4, 1890). If further releases come out beyond 31, we will see February 1, 1890 and so on…most clever idea and just another beautiful touch to this item.

Wow! Great and Practical Snake at an Amazing Price!
The only bad thing about Chance Wolf’s Econo-Magic line is that it makes the tricks sound cheaply made. Well they are not! Each item is made to the usual high standards Chance is well known for and I must say this latest little guy is his best yet. Very solid and the colors are deep and vibrant!
It is hard to imagine finding an entertaining kids routine that adults will love too that is made this well, and for $150 virtually impossible! It is almost unbreakable and is a classic packs flat plays big effect!
In addition the mechanism is 100% foolproof with no motors or batteries required.
You’ll love this!
Highly Recommended for Magicians everywhere!
