Talking Skull (Early) by Anverdi

(c. 1970) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)

It’s always exciting when I track down a new (to me at least) Anverdi item and this is the first time I have seen an early Talking Skull like this. The more common version I have seen on a few occasions measures 3 1/2″ x 4″ x 3 1/4″ with the skull mounted on a clear plexiglass wall and bony hands either side.  This one is mounted at the end of a long tiny rod surrounded by a thick perspex tube.  It operates in a similar fashion with the mouth opening and closing in response to various questions and makes a clacking sound as it does so.  What I love about this little guy is you can keep the mouth open as long as you like to add a little bit of character to the responses. 

Works perfectly with easily found AA (6) batteries and a Sony CR2477 for the remote control which is about the size of a deck of cards, which isn’t bad for fifty year old technology! As I’ve said many times before I wonder how many of the so called modern day electronic miracles will still be working in ten years time let alone fifty.

Effect: A small skull about the size of a 1″ die is seen to be isolated in the middle of a perspex tube resting on a tiny rod.  As yes/no questions are asked or numbers requested the skull will open and close it’s mouth in response.  Under the control of the magician at all times.

(Notice: this item, like most “talking” skulls, does not actually talk,  but it simply opens and closes the mouth on demand.)
