I bought one of these back in 1978. I was booked to do shows at a Pennys opening a Sesame Street Dept. I will never forget the frenzied yelling of the kids. They actually seemed mad about me being so stupid not to see Cookie Monster run back and forth. How many tricks get that kind of reaction?
Great for Collectors, but not pratical for regular use
Like the other reviewer, I bought and later sold this one. It is a great trick and top quality production.
But the angles are terrible for even a small stage. Like Houdini’s Elephant Vanish, you have to be in the dead center of the theater to see inside. The rest of the audience has to take your word that something cool happened.
As far as doing it for close-up in a restaurant or walk around, it’s just to much to carry. Plus, the chances of it getting "dinged" are pretty good.
Still, it is a darn good trick. Just don’t buy it if you plan on adding it to your act.
I booked my wife to be a walk around magician at a Green Bay Packers Public Shin Dig at Lambau. She had never done magic before, but is a fast learner. This is one of the two tricks she did and totally killed. Very bright and visual prop.
