Very rare, even in damaged condition, and usually missing parts and pieces... But here is Tenyo's classic Rabbit in Wallet, in excellent condition, with all props still intact and including the original package label. (The instruction sheet is a photocopy of the original -- sadly, the original instruction sheet was not with thhis otherwise complete set)
This was one of Tenyo's early marks of genius, as Hiroshi Kondo combined elements of the himber wallet, the paddle effect, and some cute little Tenyo bunny caricatures to make a mystifying and memorable magic item. You can do a few different tricks with this, but most impressive is how the rabbits jump from cards onto the paddle and onto the paddle sleeve. You can see the inspirations for later great Tenyo items like Wild Wallet and Mirror Mate.
There is some minor discoloration on the fold/edge of the paddle sleeve. Nothing too bad -- just mentioning for completeness of description.
This one is almost too good for me to sell, but I do have a nice example of this effect in my personal Tenyo collection, so I am listing this one for another serious Tenyo collector. You may not see another complete Rabbit in Wallet again for many years, and certainly not one sold by such a nice guy as me. Better get it!
