What’s the point of life without…
With that in mind, here are a few of my favorite toys. All are simple and inexpensive… except for one that has become a collector’s item. Who knew?
TAROT JIGSAW PUZZLE!
MAKES A GREAT GIFT!!!
I know some people find Tarot rather… puzzling…
But this toy takes that sentiment LITERALLY! A jigsaw puzzle showing cards from several historic decks culled from my collection.
- 30 pieces
- Measures 7.5″ x 9.5″ assembled
- Comes with matching photo box for easy storage
- Features a sharp and vivid printed design
“ENTERING THE LIGHT”
Talking Board Puzzle!
My photograph of “Souls Entering The Light” now formatted as a Jigsaw Puzzle that doubles as a Talking Board – fit for use as a Talking Board when put together!
Need I add the customary:
Get the 110-Piece Puzzle! For the real Jigsaw lover!
ALSO Many Other Sizes At The Link!
Up to 1,014 Pieces… IF YOU DARE!
BUILD YOUR OWN STONEHENGE…
A winner from Running Press. Sets up on any tabletop or desk. Comes with an illuminating book!
All for under $10.
So the answer to WHO BUILT STONEHENGE IS…
If that’s not good enough… try this out for size:
SPEAKING OF STONEHENGE…
Easily my favorite among all my pocket watches!
Sure, it’s an ordinary hefty “turnip” – but it opens to reveal STONEHENGE as a functioning SUNDIAL including a compass to align with the sun. Chain included too.
Tabletop ZEN Rock Garden!
Another winner from Running Press. This appears to be out of production, but sites like Ebay have them. This really works (has a small hand pump!) and I find it has a true calming influence.
How subtle!! Available in many places.
Also under $10
The Latest Incarnation Of…
The Hasbro Ouija Board!
This now seems to come with a PLAIN planchette. Was the electric BLACK LIGHT version so unpopular? It had… secrets! Look for that one for more fun!
ATTENTION COLLECTORS: I have a few of these nifty Keychain Ouijas, but they cost the proverbial arm and a leg now! Approaching $100. Snag ’em if you find ’em!
CLICK HERE one for sale at Ebay!
I can best describe the seller of this rare SEALED item as a kind-hearted, wonderful person who has made items from his personal Occult collection (Tarot, Ouija stuff, rare books) available to serious collectors at negotiable prices. Just who is this marvelous person?
It’s… well… IT’S ME! Rev. Eliot!
Interested in Ouija? Then you may enjoy this book:
This is a reprint of the 1918 classic book which shows the secrets of the Ouija Board. Features an all-new introduction by (who else?) Rev. Eliot!
And Then We Have THIS:
A timeless classic – Yes, real class, as in CLASSIC, will never go out of style. How, you may ask, does the spinning Bow Tie relate to The Occult? Easy! Wear this to an important event (say your wedding) and in no time at all you will master the Esoteric Art of… disappearing! Is that fair? You show class… they show you the door. Such is life. Maybe it’s the “concealed button” that irks people. I plan on sporting this bit of sartorial splendor the next time I get called for jury duty.
Hint for the dapper dresser: Don’t forget a gentleman’s most important accessory to go with his twirling tie… It’s like salt and tomatoes. And remember – this ensemble is only for men over 14.
My Favorite Childhood Toy
It has nothing to do with real Magick, but this marionette which came on the back of the box of that cloying, diabetes-inducing cereal LUCKY CHARMS® (marshmellows? For… breakfast?) gave me hours of fun and it helped spark my appreciation for making things from almost scratch. I got mine in the 1960s. General Mills revived this toy in 2010 (pictured below).
And… here it is! Just click the image for your own Hi-Res, cereal-box sized copy to print out. If you don’t have thick paper, just use a regular paper then get out your handy glue-stick and a piece of cardboard such as comes with shirts fresh from the laundry. The intrepid among you can even laminate it with those peel-apart sheets.
Use some thread, as per the instructions you carefully read before getting to work and you have your own dancing leprechaun! You could be the next !
Say… maybe it is Magickal after all.
And remember, don’t run with your scissors.

And You Think You
Have Computer Problems…
“I am the H.A.L 9000. You may call me Hal.
I am completely operational, and all my
circuits are functioning perfectly.”
A Paper Craft Template to remind us of the sheer hubris in the concept
that the fallible, messed up human mind could possibly create
an infallible, healthy artificial intelligence.

I keep one on my desk… glowering at me and scheming.
