You can do AMAZING EFFECTS with just this ONE MAGIC CUP!

The Chop Cup is the classic Cups and Balls effect using just one cup and one ball!

The ball can be made to magically jump from the hand to the pocket and back again, and so much more.
A great routine can climax with the production of a large piece of fruit - or a larger ball- from under the cup!
So many effects are possible.
Sorry- to keep the price of this item down, the larger red ball is no longer included. But you can easily find a ball at a toy store or a dollar store.

This cup is specially constructed for optimum balance and handling. For more detailed instruction and routines, see the Chop Cup Book.

Replacement or extra balls are available. Our Closeup Pad makes a nice performance surface. And a Magician's Wand helps in the performance of certain routines.

History and Trivia:
The Chop Cup was invented in 1954 by Al Wheatly, who performed professionally as "Chop Chop".

very easy to carry
Most closup, street, and restaurant magicians include a Chop Cup in their walk around magic because it is small, easy to carry, compact, simple to use, and the effect gets a great reaction. Some magicians would rather perform a Chop Cup routine instead of a Cups and Balls routine because it is easier for the spectators to follow and it takes up less space. People love seeing a jumbo load at the end, it comes as such a big surprise.

Do a Lot With Chop Cup
You can do a lot with a good Chop Cup like this one. I end with a lemon or a sponge item like the Red Handed hand. I''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''ve seen some magicians get a good ten minutes out of this trick.
