Pan-do-ra Bag (pân-dôrè. bâg) n.
a) A see-through force bag made from mesh fabric, designed to start out clearly empty and secretly load force items into the second compartment whenever you like.
b) A diabolical utility prop that every magician should own.
c) A quality product from Creative Magic that comes with two different sized bags plus a DVD packed with routines and ideas.
The Pandora Bag is the perfect prop for brainstorming new ideas and routines. Just start a list of all the things that will fit in the load area, or heck use it as a standard force bag and start putting larger items in there life fruit, small toys, prize balls from a vending machine, candy bars, or key chains? What does the bag remind you of?
Look at other routines and ask yourself, if I added a force bag to that trick, what else could I do? Read through old magic books and magazines and ask yourself the same question.
Try to find something you are really excited about. What are your interests? Do you have a personal story you can incorporate into the routine? What if you based the routines on a good joke? "Where can you find a turtle with no legs or arms? Wherever you left him! Now reach into my bag and pull out one of the legless turtles and see what number is on his shell."
