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! (See our Finale Balls available below)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. Or see our selection of Finale Balls available below!
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 below. Our Closeup Pads make a nice performance surface. And a Magician's Wand helps in the performance of certain routines.
WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD. Do not put the balls in your mouth. Not suitable for children under 5 years of age.
