Improved 21st Century Rattle Box by Craig Brooks

(c. 2007) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)

The Perfect Rattle Box! What a wonder this little rattle box is – and I do mean little, it is a fraction of the size of regular rattle boxes. Craig Brooks has a real winner on his hands with this amazing little device. 

It looks beautiful and works perfectly too. This level of detail and very fine craftsmanship is something you rarely see these days, particularly for such an inexpensive item. The small size makes it all the more convincing as it is much closer in size to the coin you are vanishing. The new style rattle mechanism, which takes a little while to get used to, is unique to Craig’s box too and you soon realize what you’ve been missing all these years!

Effect: This prop will enable you to vanish a ring, poker chip, coin, etc. with ease and in full view.

The performer asks for the loan of a coin (or ring, etc.). The coin is marked and dropped into a neat hardwood box, which is given to a spectator for safekeeping. The lid is closed and box shaken to ensure that the coin is still locked within. At anytime during your routine, the box may be shaken to prove that the spectator still safely holds the borrowed article.

Finally the box is shaken and at your command, 1-2-3, the sound stops abruptly and the spectator immediately opens the box only to find that the contents have vanished!

    A Rattle Box You Will Use

    I just received Craig Brooks’ new "21st Century Rattle Box," and I am so impressed by it on so many levels. First, its a beautiful box made of gorgeous hardwoods…it looks like a box you would buy at an Art Fair. Beautiful yet innocent looking…definitely not "gimmicky" in any way whatsoever.

    The size is perfect. It’s very small. Not the old "big box" design of the past. Craig really thought this size issue through when he designed this.

    Finally, the rattle mechanism is completely unique…this is another new design feature that Craig came up with for acheiving the rattle sound. And it resets instantly.

    This is a Rattle Box that you will actually use in performance. This really is the 21st Century rattle box!

    Highly Recommended.

    CREATIVE THINKING UPDATES A CLASSIC!

    I’ve just received Craig’s latest "Improved" 21st Century Rattle Box and I must confess it is even better than I thought it was going to be!

    It’s just the right size for vanishing a coin. It doesn’t look at all suspicious thanks to the almost square shape and relatively thin bottom (when compared to every other rattle box on the market).

    The rattle mechanism locks and releases with ease.

    The craftsmanship is superb and the price very reasonable.

    All in all I’m anxiously awaiting other creations from Atlantis Magic.

    Atlantis Magic did it !!

    When I received this little marvel, I already knew, that, except for displaying in my collection, I will never use again any others of my rattle boxes !

    The size is perfect, the woods chosen by Craig are splendid, the craftsmanship is great, the gimmick works like in a dream.
    The different handling proposed in the instructions are really interesting.

    It is useless to be more wordy about this little gem; let me give you one advice : if you need a rattle box, this is the one ! Get one as soon as you can.

    Bravo Craig, I can’t wait to catch your next item, and add it to my collection !

    SUPERB RATTLE BOX……….for CENTURIES TO COME !

    Craig has produced for the magic world the FINEST RATTLE BOX which I have seen in my nearly 60 years of doing magic. This has been refined, polished, and PERFECTED to the ultimate superb magical weapon to vanish a coin ALMOST IN THE SPECTATOR’S VERY HANDS AND BE SUPER "CLEAN" AT ALL TIMES.

    I cannot recommend this product too highly. Craig has thought through all of the "moves" and even SUGGESTED ROUTINES very thoroughly. In fact, it is my personal belief that his cleverness is only OUT DONE BY HIS CRAFTSMANSHIP.

    Highly recommend product for any WORKING MAGICIAN OR COLLECTOR.

    p.s. I have been honored to have performed with DON ALAN, MR. ELECTRIC (MARVIN ROY) AND EVEN ARTHUR BUCKLEY (from England). As a teenager I have even known OKITO. Okito would have LOVED this 21st. Century Rattle Box by Craig Brooks.

    BRAVO!

    The Perfect Rattle Box!

    What a wonder this little rattle box is – and I do mean little, it is a fraction of the size of regular rattle boxes. Craig Brooks has a real winner on his hands with this amazing little device. I have sold all my other rattle boxes and now only use this one. Unfortunately, this means I could not put a picture of a more traditional rattle box as a side by side comparison – but there is a huge difference in both height and length.

    It looks beautiful and works perfectly too. This level of detail and very fine craftsmanship is something you rarely see these days, particularly for such an inexpensive item. The small size makes it all the more convincing as it is much closer in size to the coin you are vanishing. The new style rattle mechanism, which takes a little while to get used to, is unique to Craig’s box too and you soon realize what you’ve been missing all these years!

    All in all, a very perfect addition to my collection – I can’t wait to see the next magical item that Craig produces!

    Highly Recommended!
