Bigger mouth cup for a bigger surprise ending!
BEWARE IMITATIONS! If you buy from MagicTricks.com, you will be getting the Ickle Pickle Wide Mouth Chop Cup, not the cheaper version being sold elsewhere. YES, IT DOES MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN HOW IT HANDLES! And some other sites picture the Ickle Pickle version, even though that is not what they are actually shipping. Don't get disappointed- buy the real deal here!
This is the classic Cups and Balls effect using just one cup and one ball! And this one has a LARGE OPENING so you can produce a REALLY LARGE item at the end (like an apple or a large ball, etc.)!
Using only one ball and one cup, you start by placing the ball in your pocket- instantly it reappears under the cup! You then do it again, lifting the cup to show it empty, tapping the cup with your wand- and the ball is back again! For the climax, the small ball disappears only to be replaced by an orange or an apple or any other large object that will fit!
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 also available. Our Closeup Pads make 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".
