Professional Set, Weighs over a pound!
The Cups and Balls effect is one of the most recognizable tricks in magic! Many professional magicians make the Cups and Balls the highlight of their performances, and for good reason. This trick is a true classic, a real audience pleaser. And this is a true professional quality version! Three cups, three balls. Make the balls appear and disappear, travel from under one cup to another- many, many routines! Easy to learn, but so amazing to see. And this set is made in perfectly weighted mirror-polished chrome metal. 3.75″ tall. Gorgeous to look at, delightful to work with! The cups stack perfectly on top of each other, giving you that extra “edge” in performing the more complex Cups and Balls moves.
Based on the set that inspired Houdini!
Walter Gibson was an American author and professional magician, best known for his work on the pulp fiction character The Shadow. He developed a routine for the Hindu Wands (also known as Chinese Sticks) and performed it several times for Houdini in 1926. Houdini was so impressed by his performance, that he recorded Gibson’s explanation of the routine and had a custom set of sticks made for himself as well. Unfortunately, Houdini died right before he could do his performance with these. The video shows a basic routine using the Hindu wands built in the same style and material (bamboo) that Houdini had had his made. The purchase includes two Hindu Wands (handmade out of bamboo) and a custom built stands, as well as the book: Walter B. Gibson’s Magic Words (A $35 value) Share the video http://youtu.be/vCQEqMTqkqo
Cube Squared is a human square circle with endless performance possibilities!
This very well may be the LAST one available from Creative Magic – they are sold out EVERYWHERE else…check for yourself!
These are now going for MUCH more than retail (if you can even find one!) because of their excellent value and ability to upsell your show.
Here are just some of the exciting features:
1) Sets up in literally seconds and packs small enough to fit into a brief case!
2) Weighs practically nothing.
3) Can be performed surrounded.
4) No need for an assistant!
5) Can be used to produce large objects.
6) Extremely easy to learn and teach others.
7) Comes with a drop cloth so it can be performed almost anywhere.
8) The load cube has a rip-away top/bottom so that the cube can be lifted to be shown empty
with balloons, beach balls, silks or other light objects in it. Or, if you have people above you, the rip-away top can be used to conceal your load.
9 ) Specially designed to be compatible with Victory Cubes.
This means instead of the red cube you could use a present cube or shipping crate or basic dice from the classic Victory Cubes. This opens a world of opportunities for more routines or means you can have incredible matching stage decorations for your illusion and it all still fits under the seat of your car!
The basic performance idea is to show the two cubes empty and then produce a person or large objects using the square circle method.

36″ by 36″ by 36″ (largest cube)
34″ by 34″ by 34″ (red cube)
