Sorry I could not deliver Supertoy to you for Christmas.

I thought of the next best thing :-)

I love magic tricks, its a hobby of mine.

My greatest hero is Derren Brown.

The best magician in the world.

      A true Hero of Robots, a name we need to remember.

      "According to Jewish legend, Solomon used his wisdom to design a throne with mechanical animals which hailed him as king when he ascended it; upon sitting down an eagle would place a crown upon his head, and a dove would bring him a Torah scroll. It's also said that when King Solomon stepped upon the throne, a mechanism was set in motion. As soon as he stepped upon the first step, a golden ox and a golden lion each stretched out one foot to support him and help him rise to the next step. On each side, the animals helped the King up until he was comfortably seated upon the throne.[8]"

      @Mari Thanks. It warms my heart to know I did something for Christmas. I think they will love the trick. Its pure maths by the way.

      I was talking to Derrens PA, lovely people. They didn't like it when I explained one of his tricks. Anyway, hopefully a free Supertoy will put things right, amazing man, my hero.,

      Ashley. Nice card trick. And totally agree Derren Brown is awesome. Managed to get to his newest love theatre show (infamous) in Edinburgh. Totally fascinating and amazing ending. Would love to have been one of the people picked to go on stage

      Thanks Ashley, not as awesome as Super Toy, but a great trick that will impress my sons! Merry Christmas to you and yours.
