We raided the Stevens Magic Time Capsule room otherwise known as: “The Crypt.” We pulled out some effects from Theo Timmerman – the talented closed-up performer, creator and dealer from Holland and his Timmerman Magic Productions. These are quite scarce and in fact few people were aware of this outfit. The products are dated but in original condition. They all are geared towards close-up and/or micro-magic which is a bit interesting being what was in style at this time were larger pieces of apparatus.
The Magician introduces four numbered sticks used in elementary schools to teach math. Each stick has four sides with 4 digits running in a column down each side. He asks someone to arrange the sticks in any order they like and to calculate the sum of each of the newly formed 4-digit numbers. Before they can punch in the first set numbers into a calculator or write anything down, the magician predicts the sum or calls it aloud. This can be repeated many times with a different results.
Original calculator included but you can use your phone calculator or any other calculator.
Note: This item comes with instructions from “another” math sticks product. The numbers featured on the instructions are NOT the same as the ones featured on the sticks, however, the method is the same. You can certainly find more information about this on YouTube regards to the method.
