A classic MAK kid-show prop now brought back!
This apparatus consists of a cabinet 10 inches by 5 inches square, with kid friendly decorations. The cabinet is open at the top, front, and rear, and may even be examined.
A spectator inflates a balloon and it is placed in the cabinet. The performer smashes it with the block of wood, and claims a rabbit will appear in the balloon! Nothing has apparently happened. He then reaches into the cabinet and brings out a flat rabbit. Try it again. This time as the balloon breaks, a live dove appears, as if it was inside the balloon all along. This is a very visible change and, don’t forget, the cabinet was examined.
Work it on any table or even in your hands. Scores of effects are possible. Balloon to Silk–Balloon to Candy or Glass of Liquid–or anything else that is about the size of the cabinet.
Operate everything close-up and surrounded. Entirely mechanical. No hanging bags.
