What was in that balloon??

An incredibly versatile piece of equipment to make a live dove appear, or use anything else that will fit in the cabinet!

Let a spectator inflate a balloon, which you place in the cabinet. Loudly bragging that you can make a rabbit appear in the balloon, you plunge the block of wood by the handle into the cabinet. When you remove the block- nothing has happened, and the balloon is still intact. When you try a second time- POP! A live dove appears, as if from inside the balloon! Wow- it happens in the blink of an eye, and it gets a great reaction!

Don't have a live dove? That's okay- the Balloon Buster can be used to produce anything that will fit into the load chamber. Change the balloon to a bunch of silks, or a glass of liquid, or even a mound of candy for your audience! If you like the idea of using a dove, consider the Rubber Dove.

Operate everything close-up and surrounded. Work it on any table or even in your hands! Entirely mechanical. No hanging pockets. This method is a really clever idea!

The Balloon Buster cabinet is 10 inches by 5 inches square, just bouncing with decoration, and large enough for a generous load of items to produce. The cabinet is open at the top, front, and rear, and may even be examined. It is made to be used with a live dove, so it is safe for the animal.

Performance Ideas
If you are performing at a party, use one of the balloons supplied by the party, to show that the balloon is "ordinary".
You can also use the Balloon Buster to produce anything that will fit inside the load chamber- candy, small prizes, a glass of liquid, etc.
What you'll get:
  • Balloon Buster
  • printed instructions

Load chamber is 10" high and 5" wide.
Made of brightly painted wood.
Constructed so that it is safe for a live dove.

You supply your own ordinary balloon and your own dove.

History of this magic effect   History and Trivia:

White doves are used in magic acts because 1) doves can be controlled from flying very well, 2) doves tend to be very calm and quiet when confined in small spaces, and 3) the white color shows up well on stage.

The first balloon was invented by Bartolomeu de Gusmao, a priest who was demonstrating his idea for an airship by launching a miniature model that used a dried animal bladder to hold the air. The rubber balloon was invented by the famous scientist Michael Faraday as a vessel to hold hydrogen. Latex balloons as we know them today were first manufactured in 1847 in London.
