This trick was on the market about 10 years ago. If you have one and no directions, here are the original directions. If you would like to make this up, you can make it from a metal slinky you can buy in most toy stores. Very easy to make, and complete directions on how to gimmick a Slinky are included.
Just when you thought every possible penetration effect had been invented, comes this new novel idea. Magician patters that when he was a small child he couldn't afford to buy magic props, hence he did magic with his toys. He brings out a regular Slinky toy and shows it to be the toy we all grew up with. The Slinky is stretched out and the ends given to two people to hold. Magician stands in front of the slinky and grabs it. Suddenly, he pulls the stretched out Slinky right through his body.
That's right the rope through body effect done with a SLINKY! However, no funny looping or ties. Just the stretched out Slinky that you pull through your body. Spectators never let go of the ends yet somehow you walk thru it.
Here are the important facts.
- Doesn't have to be an opener. Pick up and do anytime in your show.
- No jacket needed, wear anything you want. Even do it outdoors with no shirt on.
- Self-contained. No extra parts. Nothing hidden on your body.
- No setup, just pick it up and do it.
- No extra gimmicks, all you need is the special Slinky that you can easily make.
- Looks totally impossible when done correctly.
BONUS EFFECT INCLUDED: The trick also includes a special Devin Knight card effect done with a Slinky. A signed card encased by a Slinky visibly changes places with another card place on top of the Slinky. Can be done with any Slinky. One of the prettiest effects with a Slinky and cards that you will ever see. In fact, this is probably the only card trick created for a Slinky. It's yours as a FREE BONUS when you buy the Slinky Through Body Trick.
Complete with detailed photographic directions that show you the complete handling.
Three Methods that range from easy to difficult are all described. This trick is NOT self-working. You must give it some practice to do it right. If you aren't willing to practice some, then please don't buy this. Once you learn how to do it you will have a novel and different effect everyone isn't doing. Perfect for kid shows.
