CAN Opener Customer Reviews
I presented the "Can Opener" as my first effect on the first day at children's camp...'cause it's an opening effect, don't you know? Well, the kids went wild! I also gave away little yellow ducks all week to all on-stage helpers. Fabulous idea, Barry! Keep 'em coming.

"I keep meaning to tell you that I used a much smaller version of your can opener last summer with great success. As I'm sure you are aware, the collapsible trash cans come in a version designed for your car. I produced 5 beenie baby ducks and the prediction item was a train car, which I painted the number 625 on it. The theme that year was trains. Section 625 is where the train books are located in the library."

"Opened my 13th year performing for the Kiwanis Toy Trade this afternoon with none other than "Can Opener" - first time I've performed it there. They loved it almost as much as I love performing it! Happy Holiday's my friend!"
Kevin Heller, Indiana "Can't say enough - this has became one of the staples in my show and this year for the first time, I have actually added it to my large outdoor illusion show "Midway of Magic". Everybody loves it!" Thanks!

"I did a library show last night and included the CAN OPENER. I bought your DVD and put all the props together myself for the full size Bongo pop-up "cans". It went over GREAT!"

CAN Opener Phone Call Jim from New Jersey called after he watched the new demo video of CAN Opener. He was very excited to see the routine and the effect it had over the audience. He asked if I enhanced the video with extra cheers from the kids at the end. NO WAY! What you see on the video is exactly how it plays every time. Simple magic that makes a great show Opener.
