Keylicious (DVD and Props) Review

Official Review

For $25 bucks you get a well produced DVD with a clever new gimmick that is exactly what the ad copy claims it is.


It's hard to not give this a high score. Included is 2 keys, 2 key rings, 1 gimmick and an instructional DVD and for only $25 bucks. Frankly there's not a whole lot say about this. It absolutely lives up to it's ad copy and the video teaser. So what I'll do is go over some of the details of what you're getting and how you'll use (without exposure, of course) so that you'll have a better idea of what you're getting.


Watch the video trailer. If you think the effect is good and that you'll do it, you'll be totally happy with your purchase. The gimmick is well made and should last pretty much forever. I would recommend, of course, that you come up with your own routine, but the product itself is solid.


There's nothing fishy about the gimmick. It's easy to handle, though you will need practice. It's not self-working (which is not a bad thing in my book). The gimmick cannot be examined, but there is no reason why it should need to be. The structure of Jeff's routine is designed for switching in and out the gimmick. This type of routine (transpo) easily facilitates the ringing in and out of a gimmick without detection.


In order to perform it the way Jeff does, you'll need to carry all five pieces with you. One pocket holds a key on a ring and another key on another ring. The other pocket holds the gimmick, so for those concerned about pocket space be aware of that. But again, I'm recommending you create your own routine, so your version may not require as much stuff to carry around. To me, it's a minor point.


If you like the effect, get this for sure. It's 100% solid all the way around and in a world where Aaron Fisher is selling a one-move DVD for $30 bucks, this is a screamin' deal.


To paraphrase Ricky Skaggs, if my last name were Prace and this were my Key DVD, the only thing I'd change would be the name. :)


Final Verdict:
5 Stars with a Stone Status of Absolute GEM!

Product info for Keylicious (DVD and Props)

Author: Prace, Jeff
Publisher: Paper Crane Productions - Amanda Hartley
Average Rating:  (2)
Retail Price: $24.95
Manufacturer's Description:

Jeff Prace's Keylicious is the brand new fun, portable, easy to use, visual, gimmick from Paper Crane Magic. Keylicious is a routine with.. You guessed it KEYS. Why keys? Well the obvious answer is that Keys are everywhere not only that but keys are not something that spectators think can be manipulated.

Jeff's routine tells the story about theft and growing up in the rough streets of Chicago. Of course Jeff's method of defense is the super sneaky Keylicious gimmick. The routine is funny and entertaining but the versatility of the gimmick allows you to come up with your own routine. The gimmick is something unlike anything else available in the magic market place and we are sure you will be able to come up with some unique uses of your own with the Keylicious gimmick.
