"... at this price with this level of insight and detail for the light comedy performer; hound your favorite dealer to let you have this, even if he makes you sit up and beg." -Bob Gill, The Magic Circular Magazine
"Lots of comic potential in the presentation combined with a practical no-nonsense method that won't tax you unduly or let you down." -Mark Leveridge, MagicSeen Magazine
"I absolutely love this effect. The premise is brilliant and could fit into almost any kind of performance – more serious mentalism, general magic, family shows or adult ones. I intend to add it to my all age shows very soon."

"... this is a great plot and a nice effect. And Archer's quick-witted video demo will give you a lot of funny bits to think about for your own show." -Jim Kleefeld, M-U-M Magazine
"The method used here is sound, and in many ways an improvement on the previous version of “Collard” that was sold some years back." -David Regal, Genii Magazine
"This new version radically rethinks the entire package and is wonderfully updated. It's now more versatile (you can use something other than a dog or even no stuffed animal, if you like) and easier to use. You can also use the gimmicks (such as the clipboard) for other routines as well." -Jheff's Marketplace of the Mind Newsletter:, Reviewer
"This is an updated version of John’s original routine. The effect is the same but the props supplied are much better The tag itself has been redesigned and it is so easy to do. You are supplied with a special clipboard, name tag, cloth bag and a few extra stickers. The download tutorial is extremely well done and you will see two different performances.
A lot of thought has gone in to this product and there are a lot of really lovely little extra touches. The dog tag has been made to last forever, and getting the name on the tag couldn’t be easier." -Paul Romhany, *Reviews Vanish Magazine
"Collard 2 comes with wonderfully made props, a clearly explained tutorial and a routine fun for all ages. This is going straight into my next kids show."
