Out of stock.

You announce that you�re about to perform one of the oldest effects in all of magic. In your left hand you hold three cups. On the table you�ve placed three balls. All you ask of your audience is that they watch carefully.

One-by-one you place the cups upside down in a row on the table. With your thumb and forefinger you place one of the balls atop the center cup. You stack the first and third cup on the center cup trapping the ball between the cups. You make brief eye contact with your spectators, snap your fingers, and tap the stack of cups smartly. You lift the stack. To the amazement of your spectators, the ball has traveled down through the stack of cups and sits mischievously on the table.

Now your spectators know what to look for. You proceed� Again you place the cups on the table one-by-one, but this time you place the center cup over the first ball. You place the second ball atop the center cup. You stack, snap and tap. With an intrigued look you lift the stack to reveal that the second ball has traveled down through the stack of cups and is sitting on the table next to the first ball.

Without hesitation you heighten the effect by repeating the procedure with the third ball. Your spectators are by this time convinced that there is something funny about those cups. They demand to inspect the cups and the balls. No problem. You shrug and hand them over.

Lance Burton recently performed cups and balls on TV.

Cups and Balls are one of the most familiar magical props of all times. Images of this trick were found in ancient Egyptian burial tombs dating back to 2500 B.C. Today modern magicians are still entertaining and confusing their audiences with this remarkable piece of legendary magic.

B_Magic's Cups and Balls Review Report this review

That old classic of magic is right here at magic, and for an excellent price. Personally, I think cups and balls is a wonderful effect, and though it takes a bit of practice to do well, and a bit more to make a miracle...the effect is outta this world. Unfortunately for me, it doesn't quite fit the kind of magic I tend to to (it's big and bulky, where I tend to do smaller, close up miracles as a restaurant performer), but the effect is nonetheless priceless. Even though I don't perform it regularly, I own it and carry with me for many of my gigs that I perform. It's a good one to have, since it's a classic, and with practice you can make this trick your own miracle. It's not party of my "absolute arsenal," but its a great trick in its own rite.

It Took a While Report this review

It took a while for me to really appreciate the Cups and Balls. Actually, I credit my wife's little sisters for my renewed use of the Cups and Balls. I performed it for them once after not using it for a while, and it quickly became their favorite trick. "Do the cups and balls!", they soon requested as I was showing some card tricks to the adults in the family, so I broke out the Cups and Balls for the kids and to my surprise, the adults were totally amazed by the routine, they loved it too! I think part of the reason I shyed away from it at first, was because of the routine included with the trick. I feel it is weak and the Cups and Balls took on a new world of possibilities once I discarded the original routine it came with and developed my own. The actual cups and balls are beautiful though. The shiny cups and colorful knitted balls start to hypnotize the audience before the routine even starts!

This was one of the first tricks I ever had. Astonishes every audience. Great and very easy. The only problem is that the cups may start getting dents after awhile, but its worth it buy it.

Cups and Balls has been one of my favorite tricks since I was a little kid. When I was 7 years old I was performing this trick like a pro. It is that easy, but it is also so powerful. If you don't have a cups and balls set then get one now and for the money you can't miss.

Great item, but... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 2nd, 2004
These cups and balls are great looking, and excellent sized. The reason I give it a 3 is because I made a buying mistake. Because the cups are alluminum and reflect the light, you can see the red on the side of the cup on the inside from the ball. Because of that, I the top-inner part of the cup to my audience, which is very deceiving.

good but not the best Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 29th, 2004
The cups are good if you don't want to spend too much money (like me) and still have something that looks good. The sound isn't very good when you hit them togther, because they're aluminum. For the specs. they look very good. They are a bit light though(cause of the aluminum). Otherwise a good product.
