Viking Mfg.-Collectors' Workshop

About George Robinson

I was introduced to Magic by Harry Blackstone Sr. (1962) who actually took me to my first Magic shop, Bert Wheeler's Hollywood Magic.


I began performing for paying gigs in 1964. Joined the Navy in 1966 and returned from Viet Nam in 1968. Performed throughout California, Utah and Oregon and in 1972 opened Viking Magic Co. in McAllen, Texas. In 1975 I began buying manufacturing companies, the firrt being Haenchen and Co., followed by Resor Magic, Brema and Sons, Massey Magic, Berg-Okito, Don Potts Magic, A&B Magic, parts of Jack Hughes Magic, Gem Mfg. Co. and Collectors' Workshop. I have been assisted throughout my magical life by my wonderful wife, Carol, since 1969.


We currently manufacture some of the worlds finest Magic equipment, serving magicians throughout the world. We have an unbroken line of service since 1931.


My personal choice in performance art deals with mentalism, Bizarre Magick and close-up Magic.
