My son loves it!! He loves magic so its a perfect gift for him on his birthdday. Thanks
WE LOVE IT!!! I bought this for my 6 year old son who wants to do a school talent show. The thrill he got when he threw it in the air and it popped open was awesome! It is indeed made of some sort of paper (kind of like a really thick mylar material), but I have to say after rolling it up and tossing it in the air 30 or more times in one night, it still looks great! Also, while it is paper, I do not think it looks like paper at all when being used. You would really have to hold it to know that it wasn't metal or plastic.
They are a little difficult to re roll at first, I have to do it for her, but once you get the hang of it it's not so bad. It's a good idea to have more than one if you want to do the trick more than once during a "show," as you can't repeat the trick until you've re-rolled it. I don't see why they shouldn't last a long time as long as you aren't too rough with them. They are a great price and I think any kid who's into magic needs a few of these.
VERY happy with this.Practice over time makes perfect. It's easy to use and looks very realistic. It's flimsy but it's supposed to be. Honestly for the money this is a great deal.

Awesome! Perfect Gift for my nephew. This is specifically for making a staff appear out of thin air. During a performance, you'd secretly swap it for a real wand of the same shape at the first opportunity.
At first glance, I wasn't sure about it. It is basically just a rolled up piece of special paper. However, after I played with it I started to like it. And after I did the trick for some of my students, I LOVED it. It's simple, yet fascinating. The kids loved it and wanted to see it again. However, you do have to roll it back up to do it again.
These little wands are so cool! My daughter got the biggest grin on her face when she tried it for the first time and loves doing this trick for anyone who comes over.
Giving this 5 stars as I think it's really a fun little gimmick. I am not even a pretending magician, but I do enjoy having a little fun thing to entertain my squads of nieces and nephews. I've experimented with it a good bit. It expands nicely quick, with a loud snap sound (this may or may not be an issue for you), and is not overly hard to re-roll up. It is not a firm wand, but it certainly stands up to carefully tapping it on a surface.
Love the GOLD!!The product works beautifully; simple, somewhat durable (for the price), and a child could operate it with no problems. But there was one surprise. The effect is deathly simple, you just reach out into the air and "Viola" a magic wand appears. Makes for a great opener.
This is a gimmicked staff for doing a particular trick. And it works well, and is stronger than I expected. (Although not nearly as strong as a general purpose wooden stick.)
If you're looking for a staff to wave around and tap the brim of your top hat, this is it.
