I always appreciate tricks and ideas that require little or no set up along with high impact and in this respect Irving Quant delivers with Carousel. It might take a while to memorize the sequence of moves but the expression of awe on the faces of layman and magicians alike make this worth the effort and the price, which to start with isn't that high.
This trick is both a puzzle for magicians but will mostly work well on laymen. The technique is rather simple, it is actually the ingenuity of the mechanics which creates this great effect.
The teaching is excellent but as I said, the trick in itself uses few sleights. It is one of those effects which you can always fall back on when someone asks for a trick. It is completely impromptu and clean which benefits it greatly and makes of it one of the best tricks out there.
I sincerely recommend it to all magicians, even (perhaps especially) beginners. Thank you Irving Quant!
