Service rating : Very prompt delivery and product exactly as described.Product rating : Hehehe - It's magnetic magic - very powerful magnets can pinch skin when being attracted - not a good idea for small fingers on kids.
Service rating : I've been Internet shopping for my business Hands-On Education for 6 years & Grand Illusions is the BEST in products & service. Adelle & Hendriks have gone out of their way to assist me. I can't think of any other overseas shop where I know the people on a first name basis & get friendly quirky emails from them like Grand Illusions.Product rating : This item is FANTASTIC as well as beautifully made.
Service rating : fast deliveryProduct rating : funny and scarce math stuff!
Should be some documentation to accompany all you r products. These are often used for demo gear and by many different people over a period of time so not everyone is aware of where they were sourced or of your website and videos etc
Service rating : Fast shipping, good informationProduct rating : It's quite an expensive puzzle, and unfortunatly really easy to solve. But still it's a really pretty object, so I guess it's worth the price.

Service rating : all OKProduct rating : all OK
Service rating : I don't know about the company. This is the 1st time purchasing from them.Product rating : I guess I didn't read the description very clearly. I didn't realize I was buying a full blown kit and not only a kit, but one with an absurd amount of steps. I figured there might be some assembly but not every single aspect. I'm surprised I don't have to melt sand to make glass for the mirrors. In one of the steps, you actually have to create a honey comb structure piece by piece to create what is ultimately, just a piece of cardboard.
Save yourself some money and just google 'make a pseudoscope' and you will find free plans to make one for $10 of materials with a lot less hassle. I don't believe it's worth the extra money to have a fancy steampunk looking cardboard version when I can make a more sturdy and simpler one out of a couple pieces of wood and some mirrors.
interesting selection of stuff, lots of cool unusual things which are great presents for my kids

I am a buyer from SG. Wrote the wrong address and failed to notice it until 3 weeks I made the purchase and didn't recieve it. Email them & they reshipped my product to me immediately. Excellent service from them! Greatly appreciated.
Service rating : I say between good and poor because they did not respond to my email questions about the product. It was shipped to US in reasonable time frame and packed well. I would say the shipping was good but the service or care not. One of the company partners responded that they have to pay Hendrick allot of money to travel to toy shows and thus the higher price. Wouldn't it be nice if we could all make that excuse, as to why prices have to be higher. That is like BP saying your gasoline prices have to higher since the CEO needs to travel to an exotic location to scout for oil but then go zip lining and stay an extra few days on the beach.Product rating : Warning ENDS ARE SHARP! I had to flat file all the end. Welds messy. Just solder so can be filed down. Welds take away from illusion. The large spiral illusion did not look as good in person as the welded wires, do not give the wiggle to appear separate. From a short distance they would not really know what it is and just think it was a long wire. This Ickle Pickle magic spiral is made in the USA for $7.50 US . The middle ends of the are not tall enough so it almost looks like one spiral. The wire is dull. I polished mine and sealed it. In the US these are 35-40% less so maybe worth it but I did not know that and mail ordered it from this from Grand Illusions. I might have been OK with the less than stellar live reaction if I did not pay the extra. I am guessing these are made fast and vary. I would say if my one middle end was not clipped as short, they might notice the ends more. Also if they could lock it together without the welds like the small it will aid the illusion.
As amazing as ever! “Grand Illusions” is the shop to check for amazing, interesting things you cannot find somewhere else. I discovered “Grand Illusions” a couple of years ago on the search for a Han dynasty compass and ever since I am checking regular for new and wonderful things.
Service rating : Quality work. I love "curiosities" of the type featured by Grand Illusions and also thought their video features were blinking useful! A hearty "cheers" to all involved.Product rating : After being messed around by the actual manufacturer of the product, Grand Illusions came to the rescue with speedy delivery. The only main gripe I have with the pictures is the strength / stability of the finished product. I bought longer edge trimming separately to solve that... the final effect is... amazing,
I love it! And all a bit cheaper than a £100k Patrick Hughes original!
If you want one of these pictures, come to Grand Illusions and whatever you do, stay away from offthewallartprints direct...
