A challenge to your eyes!


A fascinating optical illusion puzzle!

Great party favor, whether the guests are children or adults!

And great for the classroom- teaches spatial relations, optical illusion and the effect of color on perception!

The idea behind this clever little pocket puzzle has been around for over 1000 years!
Very popular even as a cereal box prize in the 1950s, it has been a favorite of kids and adults alike.
It is so confounding!

This clever mystery comes in this POCKET size!
Carry it with you in a jacket pocket and be ready to amaze and impress at a moment's notice!

The puzzle is this:
You have two cards that, when viewed together, show a cute cartoon monkey,
When you turn the cards over, one has a banana on a red background, the other a banana on a green background.
Whichever banana is placed under the other appears to GROW and be bigger than the other banana!
How is this possible??
When you switch the bananas, the other one gets bigger!

And here's a performance tip:
Watch Peter in the demo video as he pretends to "stretch" the banana before placing it on the bottom, and "shrink" the banana before placing it on top of the other one.
It's showmanship that makes magic great!
