This is an very high quality change bag (made in Europe), with a great look (velvety fabric bag with cloth trim and gold fringe) and has a solid wood handle, which feels great when you are using it -- the gimmick action is easy and sure.
This bag does NOT have some of the usual change bag bells-and-whistles, like zippered bottom, or repeat change feature. but for a basic single change change bag, it is one of the best I have seen in many many years.
I will go out on a limb and say that no magician should use this classic-style change bag for non-Kidshow work. It just looks too much like a magic prop. But for the kids... well, they love to see cool looking magic props. They expect magicians to have a lot of neat apparatus. So for your kidshow work, this is a great, durable utility prop for that routine where you just need to vanish a silk, or change its color, etc.
I cannot stress how nicely this prop is made -- when you get it, you will say to yourself "Wow, Rod was right. This is a high quality change bag!"
The bag comes with a full booklet of instructions, but I will also include a bonus book (Leo Behnke's booklet with about 25 tips and tricks for the Change bag) -- so you get TWO booklets of instructions, with tons of ideas.
NOTE: the deck of cards in the second photo is not included, just there to give you a sense of scale -- the change bag is a nice size, not too big for living room shows, but will show up well for larger library/school shows.
