The Magician shows a container of ordinary bubble fluid and begins blowing several bubbles into the air. He watches the bubbles floating, shows the spectators his empty hands (front and back- nothing up his sleeve!) Magically he snags a bubble out of the air, intact, and drops it onto the ground or table... The bubble is turned instantly into a glass ball! Very easy to perform- this is amazing visual magic!
The props supplied are very poorly made and look like a blastic ball with a huge seam going around
each bubble. I have purchased some hand blown glass hollow bubbles and they were not that expensive.
Go with the hand blown and stay away from this prop, not worth it.
Kids absolutely love bubbles, and that's what sets this trick apart. I use this trick to illustrate
a lesson how moments of time come and go like the bubbles. I make a lot of bubbles. When I finally
produce the solid ball, I explain that we can hold onto the best moments by keeping them in our
memory. The production of the solid "bubble" is actually pretty easy to do partly because the
bubbles themselves are a huge misdirection.
Bubble routines can be fun for children or adults. I have put together a decent routine beginning
with Loops. (Finn Jon) and ending with this effect. Its not the most impressive trick you will pull
off if you are a serious hobbyist, but it adds value to my over all routine.
