Topsy Turvy Bottles by Stevens Magic(c. 2009) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
The Topsy Turvy Bottles was an Abbott’s product c. 1943.
I’ve always like the Topsy Turvy Bottle idea, but have never found a set I like. These bottles from Joe Stevens are amazing! They are brightly colored and made of heavy metal, with sealed bottoms. What is also cool is that even though the bottles are different colors and can be examined the spectator can choose either one for themselves. The gimmick works with both colors.
The covers are made of thick card board, and it would have been nice to have them in plastic or metal, but otherwise this is a perfect set.
Effect: The magician holds one bottle covered by a red tube. An assistant or spectator holds a second bottle covered by another red tube. The tubes are tilted upside down, back and forth with the spectator duplicating the magicians every move. However, upon raising the tubes the magicians and the spectators bottles are not in the same position; one is upright the other upside down. This can be repeated as often as desired, much to the annoyance of the volunteer and the amusement of the audience. Or there’s this…Sometimes at parties you can ask the person booking you who in the crowd has a good sense of humor so you (and everyone else) have fun giving him a sobriety test using this effect. This always plays big with friends and this effect is perfect for such occasions.
Performance time varies from 30 seconds to minutes depending on how long you want to “milk” it. Great comedy and fun. Long off the market and in demand- don’t hesitate. While the tubes are not made from metal, the bottles are and of a very good quality.
Approx. Price: $165.00 (2009) ***Notice: I am not a dealer and this item is not for sale on this site. It maybe available in the links below or at our sister site: qualitymagicsales.com, but not from here so please do not ask.
