This trick is really good for state magic I find. The way I like to do this is to first put some
yellow soap in along with the fake yoke, or even a real egg yoke. Usually when the silk disappears
people are amazed, but there are always skeptics who will call out that it's a fake egg. I love when
people do this. At that point I pull the silk out and confirm their claim. This is when you just do
some magical wave and crack it open to reveal the egg yoke inside. From my experience, this always
plays will with audiences.

I normally really like Vernet's items. This one though just seemed too "toyish" to me. It would be
great to include in a children's giveaway depending on the age of the kids and maybe is great on
stage. Up close or Parlor though you must be real careful with your handling or you will give it
away. In this particular instance, I would probably skip this product and look for something else
or a different brand. Again props to Vernet as 99% of their stuff is great, I just wasn't real
impressed with this particular item.

I was going to do this trick for a group of individuals and the egg looks nothing like a real egg.
It is too pointy and the yoke inside looks extremely cheap. I returned it as it isn't worth the
amount I paid. I had high hopes for this egg. I went ahead and bought a better looking cheap egg at
a dollar store and drilled a hole in it, and it killed with my last audience! I had big hopes for
this one. not worth it
Best prop for this effect if you cannot/do not want to switch a real egg for the feke during the
sucker explanation. I wish the feke yolk was a little larger.
I think this is a good deal the price and what you get is great but it's hard to put the silk troug
the egg so yea it would be better if the hole was not in an angle and mor to the top but it is great
ether way awsome
I performed it to a small audience.I plan to do this to a large audience as it has so much potential
on a large stage. I had a good reaction when I just cracked the plastic yoke in the kids hand,he was
really confused as he expected a small silk. The expression was gold.Man for the price I would grab
two in case you break it- although it feels pretty strong.
Only con may be the load chamber and
hole size could be a little bigger but not a huge problem.The reason I find the hole a little small
is I like to pop it on my thumb for a bit of comedy, other than that the hole size is good.
Penguin is definitely good on price!
I have a version of silk to egg I've been using for a long time. I purchased this prop, because I
liked the idea of not having to clean egg out of the cup. Very quickly I worked this into my routine
and it went just as good. This looses a star for having to make my own yoke. The yoke it comes with
will make noise. To fix this all it takes is a little imagination to find something that will not
make noise. From the stage it looks like a real egg. I would not do this table hopping :) Since I
have been doing my other routine for so long I have decided to stick with it. If you are looking for
a simple, almost self working, less messy silk to egg, I recommend this one.
Silk to egg is an old classic and there is a reason it is still used today by many! It can fit many
many performing situations, can be done as a comedy routine, or more serious routine. Can be done
for all ages and is also quite simple! I really enjoy doing this effect as it surprises people they
will never expect an egg!
