The Peanut Butter and Jelly Illusion This is the perfect kids-show effect. It's ultra-visual, easy-to-perform, and impossible to forget. Kids instinctively LOVE it... Great audience participation! Highly recommended!!!
Price: $49.95
In stock: usually ships within 24 hours!

You display a large jar of peanut butter on one side of the stage and place a jar of jelly on the other side.

You place a black cover over each jar. After a few magic words you tell your spectators that the peanut butter and jelly have changed places.

The kids are naturally a bit skeptical... You really get them going by offering to repeat the miracle and return the jars to their original locations before you lift the covers!

The kids are ready to start a riot! They're unconvinced to say the least.

Until you lift off the covers and show that the change really did happen!

The Bonus Effect
As a special Penguins Only bonus, you'll receive an incredibly powerful routine that lets you take this effect to the next level.

You show both sides of two pieces of bread and place them fairly and cleanly in a brown paper bag. A spectator holds the bag the entire time you're performing The Peanut Butter and Jelly Illusion, and at the end of the routine they open the bag to find the two pieces of bread have magically transformed into a Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwich!

Manufacturer Says

Great kids trick Report this review

excellent trick for kids shows: it is visual, comedic, and it WILL fool adults. While penguin doesnt explain the finale of the routine as seen in the demo...it is worth your money, and im sure you can figure out your own finale

Talk about a bummer... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 20th, 2009
First off.. I was looking forward to this trick. I am a professional magician, and when I get stuck doing the kid show, I figured this would be a nice casual kid trick. Sigh.. I looked all over the place. I found it cheaper at other places, but figured "Hey! Penguin is giving away the free extra trick with the sandwich in the bag! I'll just pay a bit more and get the bonus!". Well.. bad idea. The trick in general is CHEAP! I saw all the reviews and figured it would look good. Yeah.. nope. The black things the cover it, horrible. A bendable deformed rubbery material. If in your case wrong, will be shaped and be.. too tight. Which, for this trick, is bad! Mine never worked right. It was slightly misshaped the whole time. Plus, the lids on the peanut butter are made of rubber and dont look the same. Plus, you have to glue them or they come off. And to top it off, penguin doesn't give you the trick until you email them about it. And when they do, its not the version seen in the video! That's what made me upset the most. So don't bother with this trick. I just ended up making my own version instead! So much better. You can use real peanut butter jars.

You Don't get The Bonus Effect Report this review

The PB&J illusion is a reaaly nice trick for birthday parties. I purchased from penguin magic because they offered a bonus routine making a sandwich in a paper bag. I did not receive any instructions for the trick. just the gimmick by itself. after talking with penguin magic twice, I still don't have instructions or the bonus effect, Even after they said they would mail it the next day. It has been a month now. I guess penguin magic won't stand by their word or advertisements.

Great for kids shows Report this review

This is a great trick for the kids show performer. It is easy to perform and will get a great reaction from the crowd if done well. Act as surprised as the kids and you will have something even more special in your show than you thought possible. I have noticed that this is getting hard to find so add to cart be before you know it vanishes for good.

I use this at birthday parties. The quality is pretty good. I like Oz's PB&J sandwich idea in the video. The forum will also provide many dif ideas for presentation. Kids love this.

A Must for Kids Shows Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 3rd, 2010
The kids love it. They never complain about the the black covers, (the fact that they are flexible makes the trick easier to do) and they never think about it not being real peanut butter. After all, it says "Peanut Butter". You do have to buy two jars of jelly, but only once. Don't open them and they last forever. And, put a bag in a kids hand with two pieces of bread in it. After the switch, show the bread with peanut and jelly on it. They'll go wild.

Great for kids show, and the added tip on the sandwich finale that you'll find in the forum makes it even better. Recommended!

Really fun trick. Just be careful, if you have small hands it might be a little tricky, and the peanut butter jars look fake, but other than that. awesome.

GREAT TRICK! Report this review

If you do kids' shows, you MUST have PB&J! Who CARES if the method is easily worked out by adults? It's the kids' laughter and screams of delight that make this a top-notch winner! And for Pete's sake, folks, what's the big deal about supplying your own jelly, especially when you've paid Penguin an AMAZINGLY low price for the trick? (TIP: Empty the jars of jelly, wash and dry them thoroughly, and stuff with black trash bags. Looks like jelly from a very short distance, and no chance of opening your case one day to find a sticky mess!)
