Link the mints on a packet of POLO, then link the mints too!

"Linko is a fun, organic effect"

Street magic and modern day magic is all about using everything that is around you. To be able to manipulate and change everyday, common items that EVERYBODY knows is what is expected of the modern-day conjuror.

Linko is one of those tricks that people only ever get to see on TV. It takes an ordinary item, like the POLO mint and packet, and makes them extraordinary. After all, who wants to just be 'ordinary'?


You show your spectator a couple of regular POLO mints (these can be checked), and the spectator holds onto them. As they hold the mints in their hands, you direct their attention to the mint packet. You show the logo on the packet fairly and then, with a wave of the hand, you create a miracle. You move the ink on the label so that the two POLO on the logo design are now completely LINKED! This is not a sticker or an illusion -- the packet has been changed forever. You can even hand it out to your spectators to keep if you'd like! But it doesn't end there. You remind the spectators that one of them has been holding a couple of mints in their hands since the beginning. They are instructed to open up their hands and they see, impossibly, that the mints in their hands are now also completely linked! These two ordinary items are no longer ordinary. They can be completely examined and also kept by the spectators if you wish.

This is what magic is all about, giving people experiences they have never seen before that will stay with them forever. This is why Linko was chosen to be performed on TV by the insanely talented and overtly cool Troy. Troy and his team knew that the organic nature and visual of the altered logo was perfect for the hit series on E4. Not only was it perfect for TV, but working magicians from all over the UK have been using Linko as part of their working repertoire. It is frequently used by workers as one of the Top Table tricks to be performed for the Bride and Groom at weddings. It is that good.

Modern day TV style magic that is easy to perform.

The online video tutorial teaches many different handlings, from devilishly simple to the full monty, leaving no room for the spectator to even think about handlings. There are handlings where the mints link in the spectator's hands and where the mints on the packet link in their hand, too! All are fairly easy to perform, yet some require more guts for your glory! The angles are extremely good, making this a very workable trick no matter what size crowd you attract. It is one of those high-impact tricks that is within the reach of even the most amateur of performers.

Perfect for Street Magic
Perfect for the Top Table
Perfect for Walkaround

Points to remember:

The new logo design works really well with Linko. The new logo's simplistic design draws you in and makes the link on the packet even more prominent.

This is awesome. Easy to do and gets powerful reactions. Definitely 100% follow the instructions on setting up the gimmick. Do NOT use Pritt Stick - only use what is recommended. I tried and it just makes a mess. Also, I found I needed to use another strip of the special something in the middle to secure it tightly. You'll know what I mean if you buy this. All-in-all, I highly recommend it.

Linko is surprisingly easy to do and often gets great reactions but the only problem i have with it is if you hand the wrapper out, people will see the two logos and work it out.

Received this yesterday and was literally performing the Linking polo effect and the linking polo on wrapper effect. Ben has done a fantastic and is very thorough with his tutorial. I highly recommend this product as it covers basic to advanced handlings.

I was a fan of the linking polo's anyway but this takes it to a different level. There is nothing in the instruction which seems like something to just pack it out like some tuitions. I would highly recommend the second handling taught, it got great reactions.Then you finish with linking the polo's on the wrapper and they go nuts. He's made a great trick even better. I'm off to buy some mints.
