it's a fun gag Report this review

It's a classic, most magicians know how it works and it's really nothing new under the sky. But I love this gag, I think it's fun and with the right acting it's really entertaining.2 of 2 magicians found this helpful.
I know most people believe it's a kid show gag. If properly done it can be very funny even in front of an adult audience.
I didn't buy this to discover the secret, I already knew perfectly well how it's done and it's really simple. Unlike many magicians, I tend to favor simple handling, simple entertaining effects and overall simplicity. Did I mention the word "simple"? ;-)
If you want something new to show your friends, this is not the trick to choose, I believe this works best during a stand-up show. It's not meant to have a strong impact on your audience: it's a gag.
Maybe 3.5 Report this review

I disagree with the one that call it a "gag". I is a magic effect if you know how to use it properly.1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.
3-3.5 stars due to the quality.
Hey Penguin, your rating system is flawed. What about a side way thumb for when you are in the middle of liking or not like.
First, when you get them they are a bit stiff. The color and painting is nice but this makes them rough and stiff.
After you break them in the color has faded to a pale yellow with most of the black gone, This is a similar experience I had with the Jr Wong bananas as well. I have only been working daily with these for 10 days and they already have faded fast.
Next the instructions. You get a small sheet of drawings and that is it! This is why those other reviewers probably called it a gag, they do not get to learn the real work. Check out Dan Garret's video on his handling since you do not get it from Wong.
also my hands are smaller and had to create my own move. Where has my friend is 6'5" and he can do it as the drawing. So it is possible to do as his pictures but do not be surprised that you have to work at it more if your hands are smaller.
The bananas are not equal if shape. My one has a little dip in the outer curve. Almost looks like a bean pod if it was green.
IT is a shame Wong does not provide actual instructions to teach the fine points.
PS you will not learn anything about the final OJ production you see in the video clip.
I would buy these again since I have worked for two weeks on getting it to look good but not sure if these bananas are the right ones for me or the WONG ones.. get it... anyway, maybe they can be dyed to bring back the color.
Nice Bananas Report this review

Nice little trick. I also use the bananas in clown walk-arounds and pull them out ears and weird places. They are funnier than coins (and bigger too).1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.
