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:
Silk streamers and handkerchiefs!
A glass of milk!
Whatever you can imagine (and that will fit in the canister)!
The Gift Box Production includes:
- Painted metal canister
- Two paper streamers
- Fake plastic egg
- Plastic glass of "milk"
- Supply of paper confetti
Of course, you can add your own small production items as well.
And you can easily replace the confetti as you use it up.
Confetti is available at party supply stores online.

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.
