SNAP! The classic joke to play on an unsuspecting "victim"!


They see a dollar bill lying on the ground, and just when they bend to pick it up- WHAP!- the dollar bill flies away, right into your hand!

And it is so simple to use!
The dollar bill is secretly taped to the end of a piece of clear monofilament line.
You hold the Dollar Snatcher reel in your hand, and you just press the button when you want the reel to pull the dollar bill to you.

This can be played as a practical joke in secret, or you can just use it out in the open, because it's so ridiculous!
It will get plenty of laughs for you either way!

Pretend to give a tip to a server- WHAP- you take it back!
Hand money to a cashier, and reel the top bill back to you!
How about using it at a sales meeting- the good salespeople get to keep the reward, the bad ones get it snatched away!
Or even use it to amuse the kids!

And you can use any other lightweight item!
Snatch away your business card, an invoice or bill, a cigarette, a secret note- use your imagination!

We looked long and hard to find inexpensive novelty reels that would stand up to light use.
These seem to fit the bill!
Please be aware, however, that if someone YANKS on the line, the reel will break.
Repeated use will also cause the monofilament to wear and eventually break.
These ARE NOT high quality reels.
They are inexpensive novelties and can't be expected to last.

Owner Peter Monticup keeps one in his jacket pocket, and uses it nearly daily during his errands.
A Snatcher lasts about 4 months for him.

Also, the monofilament is not meant to be COMPLETELY invisible- this is more of a novelty comedy item than a true magical mystery.
If you use it for its comedy potential, and realize that it is cheaply made, you will be more than pleased!

Customer Reviews

It's a Practical Joke
Get real, people! If you think this is a cheap substitute for a reel, it is not. It is sold as a practical joke and meant to be a practical joke. The string is not supposed to be invisible. It is not supposed to be a quiet reel. A good reel will cost you around 50 bucks. You get what you pay for here- a really good practical joke! It's not a mystery, it's a gag. Use it for what it is. People will appreciate it for the silly, funny surprise gag that it is.

I can see the string and it makes a lot of noise when I push the button. The string is not very long either. It does not fool anybody.

Funnier Than I Thought
I expected this to be a silly toy, but its actually quite a good practical joke. The thread is not very strong, but if you use it for a dollar bill it works great.
