Fred and Vida Haenchen were Haenchen Magic, the builders of some very nice magical equipment.  I remember Mom and Dad telling me how difficult it was to save up the big money needed to buy their first Illusion, the Haenchen Doll House!  It cost a whopping $100!!!  Wow!

​Check out Episode #1 of Allakazam, the premiere show on Oct. 1st 1960 to see the illusion.

There's plenty more to come, and a lot more stories to tell.  But this note was important to share.  Hope you like it.

Best Allaka-Magical Wishes,

    Do they still have the dollhouse? Fred and Vida are my great grandparents and our family has been looking for one to have for a long time!!

      How wonderful to hear from you, Ivy! Yes, we have the Doll House, it was the first illusion that my folks purchased, and I believe it cost a huge $100. Lots of money back then.
      Can you confirm what they sold for? I have not found the receipt yet! Best Wishes, Greg
