Tips & Ideas

Performance Ideas and Tips:

Not only can you make objects appear and vanish, you can also change one object into another. For example, put a red silk into the Popcorn Box. Close the box, say the magic word, then open the box- the only thing inside is a BLUE silk!
Or use the box to make a dramatic gift presentation. Put a newspaper advertisement for a current movie into the box. Close the box, say the magic word, and inside the box are movie tickets!
If the glue on the Popcorn Box gimmick becomes dried out, simply re-glue it to the box with ordinary Elmer's glue.


Make it easy and smooth! Yes, there IS a correct way to hide your silks in your magic equipment. Let Monticup show you how to load your silks so that they pop right out without getting snagged or bunched up!

Customer Reviews

The Popcorn Box is pretty clever. You can show it empty during the trick, which I like. There are only two drawbacks. First, it only works with flat objects like cards or silk scarves. Second, it is made of cardboard, so after you use it a bunch of times, it starts to get a bit worn. On the positive side, it is an amazing trick for the money. Anyone can do this, it's pretty simple. I guess if you are using it enough to wear it out, it would be worth it to just get a fresh one when you need it.
