Although slush powder is a consumable, it is cheap and can be used quite a lot with just 2oz. I
personally find that one can can last for quite more than 6 months, since I have been using it quite
often for a month, and haven't even gone through 1/10 of it. Also, the trick can be used for many
types of performances, from simple to intermediate. The only reason I gave it a 4star is because I
had no clue how to open it at first, which frustrated me for about 20 minutes.

I first bought Slush powder as a kid from a magic shop in Florida in the 80's.It was fun then and
let me tell you, it's still fun now. This is great for children's or school shows but it can also be
an effective stage or parlor trick if you style it up. I like filling up a foam coffee cup with
water then whipping out a butterfly knife all fancy like and sticking the cup then turning it upside
down. P.s don't whip out a knife at a children's show or while performing on the street :).
This little bottle of joy exceeded my expectations. It solidifies a whole lot quicker then I thought
it would and the form it reaches is a lot more solid then I was expecting. All the more better.
Other reviews say this is great for kids shows. I think it is great for an adult show as well. I do
an adult only show five nights a week and will be adding this in somewhere. I am thinking just a
quick Nanu Nanu gag to lighten up all the mind reading. The best part is a little bit goes a long
way. Being proactive I ordered two bottles to have one ready for backup. I don't think I will be
going to back up for a long time. If you want just a little something that is kinda cool and going
totally unutilized then this is what you want. On top of that I think Penguin added something new to
shipping. Either that or I have never noticed it before. You can now view in a video on line your
actual order being packed. So cool.
I've searched all over the internet for a good price and Penguin is very competitive, aside from
buying bulk. This is a great standard trick that if used wisely can fool people in the know. Lay
people love it, even if you expose the trick, it's still "magical".
One can of this lasts forever, and it costs almost nothing! I close almost all my parlour shows with
this. Highly recommended!
Very Easy to learn & do ....
Cool effects that can be done with this!
There are so many ways to use this great item ranging from completely serious performances all the
way to laugh a minute comedy. Sit down with this item for a while and you will have heaps of ideas.
Definitely buy this item and at such a great price get two.
This stuff is good for kids shows. I like to have three cups and pour water into one of them. Then I
do a quick three cup monte with it and say that whatever cup they pick, I will turn upside down on
my head. Usually I try and convince them to change their mind but they never do. Then they are
shocked when the water doesn't pour. You can then show them that none of the cups actually hold the
water and they think it is great.
I absolutely LOVE slush powder. I have ever since I first saw it at a magic shop over 9 years ago.
Slush powder is one of those SUPER cheap but versatile things you can use for ANYTHING.
This can be anything from a harmless prank to a POWERFUL stand-up magic effect. People will laugh as
they can't drink the rest of their drink because it is slush, where as people will freak out as you
throw a drink out on to the audience, only to see it stays in the cup.
I love this stuff,
and it is only a bit of money. The vial that you get for almost 3 dollars is enough to slush a lot
of individual sips of liquid, and enough to slush a few full sized drinks. This is fun stuff, and
the creative potential is amazing.
