Abbotts Shenanigan Die Box Jumbo
Here is a brand new idea! A Die Box with no shell to worry about ... you never need to touch it! Shenanigan Die Box may be performed surrounded! An entirely new principle is used. The Die Box effect has always been a sure-fire trick and now its better than ever with the new Shenanigan Die Box. No skill is required - its easy! The magician may borrow or use his own hat (the hat is unprepared and is never secretly loaded as in some older methods). A handsome natural wood finish box with brass hardware fittings is shown all around. The top lid and the two front doors are opened. A white die with black spots is seen inside. (The spots are concave and three-dimensional, not just painted on.) There is no center divider in the box and more than one side of the die is visible. The die is removed and may be examined and it is then placed into the hat. The magician pretends to invisibly remove the die from the hat and tosses it towards the box. A distinct thud is heard as it arrives. The magician opens the doors of the box to reveal the die! Now for the sucker by-play. The performer pretends to cause the die to vanish. He opens only one of the front doors to show the box empty on that side. Closing this door he gives the box a sudden movement and something is heard to slide inside. Opening the other front door discloses that that side of the box is empty also. But wait ... the spectators can see the die inside the box. The performer quickly closes the door. The top lid and the two front doors are once again opened and the box is shown unmistakenly empty. The die is removed from the hat and once again may be examined. This prop is versatile and you may choose to work out your own routine. The box is approximately seven inches by five inches by four and one-half inches tall. The die is two and three-quarters of an inch cubical. The workmanship is of the highest quality. You will marvel at the secret. Do not confuse Shenanigan Die Box with any other die box advertised. This is the creation of Bud West and we positively guarantee it to be easy, practical and fool-proof. Note: It is also available in a jumbo size with the size of the die being five inches cubical!
