The House (aka "No Strings Attached") by Ray Cooper You'll have the freedom to float a borrowed object at a moment's notice. This is the first truly spontaneous levitation ever invented.
Price: $29.95
Out of stock.

You borrow a lightweight object from a spectator. Just ask for anything they have in their pocket… (paper works best...). They pull out something... it could be a dollar bill, business card, gum wrapper, parking ticket, napkin, tissue, receipt, report card, postage stamp, to-do list, piece of aluminum foil, love-letter, post-it note, coupon, crumpled up phone number... it really doesn’t matter what they pull out... as long as it’s lightweight and you can fold it.

You give it a fold in half. You can fold object either the long way or the short way... you can even crumple it up if you wish. Next, you set the object in your hand with your palm face-up. The object hasn’t started floating yet... but gradually it starts to appear lighter... it’s as though gravity is relaxing away... or maybe the wind is catching it just right...

As you continue to concentrate on the object it begins to float. At first it floats for just a fraction of a second. You touch the object from the top with your index finger. As you’re pointing down at the object you remove your other hand from underneath completely.

The object follows your finger back and forth through the air. Soon you remove your hands from the object completely. You wave your hands on the top, bottom, and both sides of the object. You even form your fingers into a circle and run them around the object.

The Grand Finale

In one of the cleanest (and most-fun to perform) finishes in all of magic you unfold/un-crumple the object right before your spectator’s eyes. With no funny moves, (no swallowing, ditching, switching, breaking, reeling, or de-waxing) you hand the borrowed object back to your spectator and perfectly enunciate the magic words... “No Strings Attached”! (It’s very difficult not to smile at this moment… so go ahead and smile).

Your spectators can immediately grab and search for strings... they can hug and kiss you, cook your dinner, buy you presents... but they’ll never find a thing. They can take out a search warrant if they like... you’ll float that too! You’re already set-up for next time!

Manufacturer Says

(The name "No Strings Attached" is the final line in the suggested patter for this effect. A special type of advanced invisible thread is used.) The thread is easy to set-up and comes already stripped and ready for immediate use.

The only restriction with this effect is that it must be performed in the area that it has been set-up. It is excellent for use at home, on the streets, at work, at school, on stage, during speaking engagements, at parties, etc., but it is not ideal for table hopping/strolling magicians. Many restaurant workers use The House, but in a central part of the restaurant and not at each table individually.

only one problem with this... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 7th, 2003
The only thing I don't like about this is the fact that it is a stationary, not mobile levitation. It needs to be set up in a specific place. I mostly perform magic in public and this has a bit of set up, so is not practical for restaurants and bars (unless you work there).

So if you perform on a stage, your office, or at home, its great. Just don't expect to get much use from it in the streets.

Just Move On... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 24th, 2004
Here I am, scrolling through the reviews given by others and can barely contain my excitement. All I'm seeing is 5's and 4's, all saying that the trick is truly astonishing.

Well I guess I'll have spend some more time with my Websters because apparently, we have different ideas of astonishing.

Don't get me wrong, this trick would be truly amazing if it was portable. Tricks like The Raven or the Vanishing Handkerchief are as such, ones that you could presumeably do with little to no setup. This one however, lacks that ability. The way that you're forced to set this trick up is of itself a task, not to mention making sure that no one ever discovers the gimmick or happens to stumble onto the secret.

While I may have some high expectations of levitation tricks, this one just doesn't even measure up to par due to its inability to perform easily.

Not impressed!!!!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 3rd, 2003
I have spent hundreds of dollars on books, videos, packet tricks etc. This is one of the worst purchases I have ever made. I guess I just need to stay away from levitations, or come up with something on my own. I guess I put my expectations a little to high on this effect. I do have to admit that you end very clean. It says that this effect is impromptu. I guess I need to look up the definition of impromptu, because impromptu to me means I can do the effect when I want wherever I want. If someone asks you to perform the effect a week later you had better hope you are in your special location.

Definition of " The House " Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 12th, 2004
Maybe.. just maybe it's called the house... because you can only do it, in your HOUSE? I dunno, I like the concept of this trick but the fact it's not very versitile, I gave it a 4. Good thinking though!

No. Report this review

The "secret" is extremely difficult to do. "It" was so messed up that I couldn't set it up one bit.

I haven't been able to perform in yet.

If you wish to throw away $ 30, then add to cart.

Absolutely Fantastic!!!!!!!!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 17th, 2003
First, I would like to thank Penguin Magic and Raymond Cooper! This is the greatest magic I have ever performed. You will not regret it if you purchase "No Strings Attached". People went by in their cars outside my house while I was levitating a dollar bill and they blew their horns at me! People look... and can't look away! It's such a cool and fun trick, it will look like you are really making things fly... even under your own close observations. It's Magic for Magicians. Mom and Dads jaws dropped to the floor! This product is high quality and the materials are extremely durable. Thanks again Penguin Magic! You guys rock!!!

GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 31st, 2008
I just got this trick today. I was blown away by the secret. Im still thinking of more affects i can do with this. The good thing about this os that there is no way that the aduince is ganna figure out the secret. One thing that is dosent show it the preview that i think it should is that you can walk away from the bill wile its floating. It also has a great way to make the bill appear. ADD TO CART!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I haven't done levitation effects for a while because I don't like reels. This effect brought me back with a very different secret!
