Are you a woodworker?

Flash Tray by Chris Smith Cause items to impossibly burst into flames at your command. LIMITED SUPPLY JUST ARRIVED. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Price: $150.00
In stock: usually ships within 24 hours!

Our primary goal when performing magic is to create an intense emotional impact with our audience. Flash Tray allows you to introduce the most dramatic element, FIRE, in an ingenious, motivated way. Items placed inside of it inexplicably burst into flames at your command.

Flash Tray is designed to look like an ordinary ashtray - its small, empty and completely natural looking. Spectators can handle it and they won't discover its diabolical hi-tech secret. Yet it's so simple to control, you can concentrate entirely on your presentation.

Flash Tray offers you an array of possibilities. Included are 6 fully fleshed out and scripted routines from the brilliant mind of Christopher Rose, along with 12 other routines. Here's a short sampling:

  • Matches self-combust.

  • A torn-up billet vanishes in a ball of fire as you reveal its hidden information.

  • A spectator writes the word 'burn' on a piece of paper and places it in Flash Tray. After a moment of concentration, it bursts into flames.

  • A spectator's thought of coin appears in a fireball in the center of the empty tray.

  • A spectator's fear is written on a piece of paper and crumpled up. It bursts into flames - strangely the crumpled ball is still there. The spectator opens it up to discover their fear is now gone - the paper is blank!

Flash Tray can be performed close-up and surrounded. It works on any surface and can even be held by the spectator during performance. Custom designed from the ground up - its designed for years of service.

  • Examinable

  • Remote Control

  • Rechargeable

  • Flash Paper Included

  • 18 Routines


Flash Tray is a pyrotechnic prop. You must be over 18 years of age to operate it. Keep fire away from all people and animals, and use Flash Tray at your own risk.

My tray will only work ONCE before it needs a charge! Report this review

Great prop BUT it seems to only work one time before it needs charging again.I hope if I let it charge more I might get more out of the battery...I might need to contact Penguin for a replacement.I'm not sure if its designed to do that or not.

You've got to be kidding me ! AWESOME Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 30th, 2013
This is my first review.(I am learning that reviews are important so fellow magicians can spend their money wisely)

I am a amateur magician, I do magic for family, friends, and co-workers. I love magic, I especially love gimmick magic and making the gimmicks. I've bought a lot of magic over the last couple of years, some very disappointing, and others incredible (spend your money wisely)

Anyway, I received FLASH TRAY for Christmas from my wife this year. (I put a bug in her hear)

You've got to be kidding me! AWESOME.

This thing looks like a real ash tray and can be used as one.

The quality is unbelievable.

FLASH TRAY rocks in my book ! I will be using this a lot.

Thanks to MagicSmith and PenguinMagic for money well spent!

Get it, you won't be disappointed, IT'S FREAKING AWESOME!

Looks JUST like a regular ash tray Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 15th, 2013
MagicSmith is such a solid creator. Everything he makes looks like the real version. They car key trick. The bag/lightbulb/clip trick. Everything. And Flash Tray is no exception.

The price is high, but the trick is intended for serious magicians and mentalists. Not just a toy.

The remote and mechanics work for me 100% of the time. No mechanical issues.

The one (super small) complaint is that the tiny w*$# that lights the f&#!# p@*#& is so tiny.....it could be a couple mm bigger...just for ease of use. But I understand why it's so small: The tray is now examinable.

Man...if I were a mentalist, I'd definitely find some way to incorporate this into my act....so many possibilities between the matches and the paper and flash paper....

Hi , I recently bought this trick , before this arrived , I thought I have just bought a thing that is fun to play with but not that useful , but in the end when this arrives , I found that this is even more fun than what I expect , and this goes straight into my show ! I highly recommend this , it is fully examinable indeed ! Everything is very well made ! I am surprised by how few people get this ...
