Juxtapad is more than just a magic trick. It allows you to perform numerous effects. Imagine being able to make any word, any number, any picture or anything you like VANISH or APPEAR at will from a STICKY NOTE PAD. NO SPECIAL PENS, NO SPECIAL INKS.
Juxtapad comes with several routines and ideas. Here is my absolute favorite!
It goes like this:
ANY BOOK in ANY LANGUAGE is flipped through, until a spectator says STOP. They are asked to remember the page number and the first word on that page. The book is closed and laid on the table. You pick up a mini sticky note pad. With NO QUESTIONS OF ANY KIND, you write down ONE word and ONE page number.
For the first time, they are asked to name the page and their word. You turn over the pad to reveal the EXACT WORD AND PAGE NUMBER. BUT WAIT -- THERE'S MORE!
THIS IS SIMPLY UNBELIEVABLE.
The pad is placed onto the spectator's hand. You claim you will make their word vanish. The pad is turned over; the writing has gone. You ask if they can remember their page number. The book is now opened to that page. THE STICKY NOTE WITH THEIR WORD AND PAGE NUMBER IS NOW STUCK ON THAT VERY PAGE.
The above routine is an absolute KNOCKOUT.
KEY NOTES TO REMEMBER:
- NO SPECIAL PENS - USE ANY PEN YOU LIKE
- NO VANISHING INKS
- NO PALMING ANYTHING AWAY
- NO ADDING ANYTHING
Comes complete with your custom-built Juxtapad and several routines and ideas.
Do I need to purchase additional replacement supplies?
I assume I can use any book. Or does it need to be a book using the Flashback principle?
Because these use small Post-It Notes, the only supplies you will need will be to purchase more of those (found at any office supply store). You will be provided with enough to get you started, but adding more is as easy as buying more and sticking them to your JuxtaPad! And you can use any book, but soft cover books are better and recommended. Something roughly the size of the book in the demo video would be perfect.
Do I need to buy 2 books to make up the 1 book? (if you know what I mean) I'm also assuming I will need to construct additional books if I wish to do repeat performances with a different outcome - correct?
You don’t initially have to buy anything. It comes ready to assemble. Eventually you will purchase more Post-It notes to stick on top of the gimmick but that is all. Also, if using this to perform the book test, you will supply your own book.
Hi what is the skill level if it is beginner I want it and could you hold me one because I don’t know how long it’ll take for you to answer this question?
This is rated as a BEGINNER skill level......and the teaching that Mark Mason gives is dictated so beginners can clearly understand everything about the effect.
Is this effect easy enough for a 9 year old to perform. Looks amazing. I'm possibly purchasing this for my grandson. He's a progressed beginner. Just don't want to invest in a more expensive trick that takes a lot of ectra moves etc. Appreciate your transparency.
Hi Victor - Honestly, I'm not sure if 9 is too young. It would depend on the size of his hands, since you do need some cover to pull off the effect. Smaller hands may need more misdirection, or and they possibly may not be able to pull off the book test version of the effect for the same reason.
