SPECIAL OFFER! Order an extra pack of balloons (regularly $5.99) when you order the Needle Thru Balloon trick above, and instantly save $1.00!
Blow up an ordinary round balloon. Tie the balloon to keep the air inside, and let an audience member handle the balloon to show that it is, indeed, an ordinary balloon. Take the long metal needle, and pierce one end of the balloon. It doesn't pop! Instead, you pass the needle right through to the other side of the balloon, and remove the needle. The balloon is STILL filled with air! Now hold the balloon in one hand, and POP it with the needle!
You can use an ordinary party balloon. A pack of 10 clear balloons are supplied with the trick, so your audience can more easily see the needle as it passes through the inside of the balloon. You can purchase extra balloons from MagicTricks.com.
Because the needle needs to be SHARP, it is recommended that you handle it and store it with extreme care. The best way to store and transport your needle is in the Wand for the Needle Thru Balloon, sold below. This special wand is specifically designed to safeguard the needle tip, plus it delivers a coating of lubricant to the needle each time you remove it from the wand. The lubricant makes the needle slide easier into the balloon.
