Mighty Mini – Light Heavy Chest by Gimpy’s Magic

(c. 2008) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)

I was a big fan of the Gravity Box when it came out. However, it was not perfect and as I used it some problems showed up. Sometimes the lid would open due to the poorly designed clasp. In addition, it would not always stay firmly on the table. Gimpy’s new Mighty Mini is everything the Gravity Box promised to be and then some. It really is perfect!

Firstly, it looks much more like a “normal” box, the Gravity box always looked a bit “propy” – the Mighty Mini looks like it could be too heavy to lift and the clasp is much more substantial. Secondly, the mechanism is rock solid and once set there is no moving the box upwards or sideways. Thirdly, it has the wonderful new feature of the handle on the top (and optionally on the sides) coming off – this is a huge improvement on the basic design and really sells the idea of the box being heavy – plus it is opens up the routine for some very funny moments. Finally, it is priced much more reasonably.

Effect: Select a volunteer from the audience. Explain that their strength can be taken away merely by the power of suggestion. Ask them to pick up the box, and they can easily do so. Now explain by putting any light weight object in the box they will be unable to lift the box. Place any light object in the box and they are unable to lift the box. Remove the object and their strength to lift the box is restored. You demonstrate as many times as you wish that the box is very light, but for some reason they can not lift it.

Built to the standards professionals demand, this box will perform flawlessly for years. Full instructions and pro tips are included.

    Much Better Than The Gravity Box!

    I was a big fan of the Gravity Box when it came out. However, it was not perfect and as I used it some problems showed up. Sometimes the lid would open due to the poorly designed clasp. In addition, it would not always stay firmly on the table. Gimpy’s new Mighty Mini is everything the Gravity Box promised to be and then some. It really is perfect!

Finally, it is priced much more reasonably.

    There is still certainly room for the larger boxes that Gimpy produces – they have their own set of features that make them special, but if you are on a tight budget or have less space, or really like the handle popping off part then the Mighty Mini is for you.

    Highly Recommended for performers everywhere!
