This new version requires NO SKILL!
Back in the day, there was a very popular magic effect known to professional magicians as the "Hat Loader".This clever prop made it possible to borrow someone's hat, and then reach into the supposedly empty hat only to pull out a variety of items.Great trick- but who wears a hat today?
This fun effect had gone by the wayside for several decades because it was impractical.BUT WE HAVE REVIVED IT!With a little "tweaking" of the prop, and a fresh new routine, we've transformed the old Hat Loader into the NEW Gift Box Production!
Start by showing an empty box (or an empty Top Hat).Next, show a tall red canister with confetti spilling out of the top.Place the canister over the box, and sprinkle some of the confetti into the box.Set the canister down on our table.And instantly begin pulling items out of the "empty" box!You can use:Paper streamers!Spring flowers!Candy!Silk streamers and handkerchiefs!Sponge balls!An egg!A glass of milk!Whatever you can imagine (and that will fit in the canister)!
The Gift Box Production includes:
BONUS ONLINE VIDEO!You'll also get the password to Peter Monticup's online video instruction.Learn how to handle and load the canister.Get great tips on presenting the effect the best way.And learn the routine that brings a classic trick into the 21st Century!
This effect is best performed at a small distance from your audience.The handling is easier without a spectator right next to you.And the glass of "milk" is actually a plastic glass painted around the inside to look like it has milk in it.Looks great from a small distance, but up close the spectator will see that the glass is empty.
You provide an ordinary box, or a deep hat like a Top Hat.Canister is made of painted metal.Approximately 6" tall and 3" diameter.Streamers are made of paper.Egg is plastic.Fake glass of milk is made of plastic.

This video was filmed in 2020, which is why we are wearing the protective face shields!Happily, shields are no longer a requirement, and we plan to film the demo over again without them.We like this demo so much, though, that we are leaving it "as is" for now. Hope you enjoy it!
