Shrinking and Growing Head Illusion (Plastic) by Top Hat Productions
Price: $40.00
Out of stock.

Without doing a thing, you perform the most talked about illusion in your act!

DO NOT CONFUSE THIS WITH ANY OTHER SPIRAL ILLUSION. YOUR HEAD ACTUALLY LOOKS LIKE IT IS INFLATING LIKE A BALLOON!

The magician displays a 15-inch, specially made spiral disk; imagine the kind a hypnotist might use. The spiral is spun and you instruct the audience to stare at the spiral and not look away. You start to count backwards from 10 to 1, and when you reach one, you tell the audience to look at your nose. TO THEIR AMAZEMENT, YOUR HEAD BEGINS TO GROW LIKE A BALLOON BEING INFLATED!

Every audience will want you to do it again so this time you have the audience select a partner. Spin the disk the other way, and when they look at their partner THEIR PARTNER'S HEAD BEGINS TO SHRINK!

The spiral can be seen in large auditoriums. It is perfect for birthday parties. People are amazed and always yell "do it again!" The hardest part of this illusion is trying to keep a straight face as your entire audience stares at you in disbelief with their mouths wide open. You are going to love this!

Spiral Disk Diameter Approximately 15" (38cm)

AWESOME EFFECT! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
I bought this effect after seeing it performed by a magician at my camp in front of a large crowd of people ranging from ages 4 - 50; everyone loved it. You can use this effect as an opener, closer, or something in the middle. There's are lot's of opportunities for comedy which makes it great for kid's shows. Personally, I use it to close my kid's show and it has always gotten great reactions from everyone; many people want to see it again.

Pros:
-Great for any type of stage show (kids, adults, comedy, ect.)
-Packs flat
-Not expensive
-Killer reactions

Cons:
-Doesn't work with 100% of people. Younger kids (like younger than 5) might miss it.
-It doesn't come with something to turn it. But you can get a cheap electrical screwdriver from walmart FOR LIKE $7 tht does a fine job.

Great stage illusion Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
This is an inexpensive way to add a great illusion to to add to a stage show. It can even be used in a living room setting if the room is not too small. The prop looks cool and it is a neat effect to see the spinning vortex. It really sucks you into the routine. The spectators stare into the spinning disk. After 60 seconds or so, you tell the spectators to looks at you nose. Your head actually shrinks! No joke, it does look that good. Reverse the direction of teh spin and your head grows to mammouth proportions. It gets laughs and gasps.

You'll need a power drill or electric screwdriver to spin at a constant speed. You will need to come up with a good routine and get the audience to get their eyes trained on the disk. Some people will not see the effect the first time so do it twice. This works well in a large auditorium. The prop is well made out of thick plastic and should last for years if taken care of. Shrinking and Growing Head Illusion was created by the brilliant Bruce Kelvar.

Best audience reactions Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 1st, 2013
I get more excitement and entertainment value out of this than just about anything else I do. This goes into all my presentations whether for young kids, senior citizens or all ages in between. I recommend this to anyone who finds themselves in front of an audience.

Great in first performance! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 18th, 2013
Used this in my show for about 250 people. While the MC introduced me he made the comment that he hoped I could make him lose 50 pounds during the show so I called him on stage and people were laughing like crazy as he "shrunk". Probably got the most comments about this illusion after the show show. Even spectators off to the side could see it. I also got the kaplin hand crank to go with it but it is nearly impossible to spin smoothly as it is too small but a black and decker cordless screwdriver works perfect!

This ROCKS!I'm definitely adding to every Illusion Show. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 25th, 2014
I did this trick at a school assembly last week of over 400 primary school kids and the reactions were amazing as I heard many of the kids and teachers exclaiming OHHHHHH!!People on the side didn't really see it. I also did it at a small 8th birthday a few days after. I think the kids were a bit close and really didn't get the full effect and some kids didn't really focus on it.The adults at the back enjoyed it.Only con is it doesn't quite fit in my case; although I'm glad its big enough for every one to see. I may look into the folding one but not sure about the quality.
