Mint Box by Daniel Garcia

A new design for an age-old plot... and more.

IMPORTANT! Make sure you watch the training before handling the gimmick to avoid damaging it. Uses Red Bicycle back card.

A spectator selects and signs a card. WHAM! It's no longer in the deck! Open up the Altoids box, and show them the folded card inside. The spectator sees you remove and hand them the card to reopen - it's their signed card!

Daniel Garcia, one of magic's most sought-after creators, has done it again with his first magic release in years! One of the cleanest and most natural switching devices ever created, MINT BOX is unlike anything you've ever seen before. Self-contained in a small Altoids tin, the gimmick allows you to OPENLY and INVISIBLY switch a card displayed inside the mint box for a spectator's SIGNED selection... completely surrounded! The mechanics are so good, you'll fool yourself! An instant every day carry!

Includes a Red Bicycle MINT BOX gimmick, the Mint Box Quick Start Guide and access to a 30-minute streaming instructional video from Garcia. Learn the basic routine and multiple variations to adapt to nearly any situation!

Spectators go nuts!

    Great! But...

    I picked this up from my local magic shop in Seattle Pike Place Market. This effect is all around well made and I truly enjoying performing this effect. I work at the restaurant as table hopping and I usually use Destination Box by Jon Allen which I absolutely love using. But the problem with Destination box is the size of it and you have to carry it around in hand. Mintbox is much much smaller than Destination Box, Paragon 3D by Jon Allen, The Box by Mark Southworth, and great for pocket management, and Mintbox is something that recognize by everyone. The only things I have problem with this is, 40-50 is a reasonable price for Mintbox. Not 60. And second is, if you're going to charge 60, at least have some replacement or instruction how to build a new one. If something happened to my Mintbox, which is delicate, I WANT to know how to replace it at low cost. Not paying another 60 bucks each time.

    Great Utility

    I got this in the mail today. After playing around with it for about 5 hours I have started creating my own routine where a card turns to mints then ends up in the tin where it visually turns back into mints and the actual card is whereever I choose to have it appear. I doubt I'll show anyone but its fun to play with. The device itself seems like it will last if handled well. The impossible Card location routine is as shown. this device delivers and works extremely well. The only downside is refills. If there was available cheap refills for ppl who purchased or if danny showed how to build it this would be a 5 star reveiw and well worth more than asking price. while not needing often if used heavily you may need a new one every year or so. Altho the steep price may be because many ppl will try and make them as its a pretty simple concept. Money well spent and a wonderful utility. Thank you Danny!!!!

    VERY GOOD...CLEVER....BE CAREFUL!!

    OK instead of a 4...id give this more like a 4.5...... The gimmick is great...packaging and teaching great....it IS sensitive and could get damaged pretty easy if not careful. He could have made the part that could get damaged using a stronger material tho so thats my main point deduction. There are a few moves that need coordinating in the routine so along with the sensitive gimmick you will have to practice quite a bit not only to get smooth but smooth and NOT damage anything. Done correctly this is pretty cool. Recommend!!

    Price is too high

    It works ok , but the price is too high, he didn’t included a spare gimmicks for repairing , and he didn’t explained how to repair the gimmiked box if needed , i'm disapointed , it could be better if he would included some repairing gimmicks for the money that i have paid .

    Handle with care

    I am a full time working magician. I perform 20 shows a weekend as owner of the Bisbee Seance Room. I put mint box in my show after watching the tutorial video. It made it through 18 shows before breaking. Love the effect, reluctant to buy a new one at $60.
