Santa's Toy Workshop
By Jim Gerrish
This effect is 99% presentation
and 1% magic, so be forewarned! Sure, it has a new vanishing box
to make an article of clothing or someones personal
belongings disappear, but the thing that makes it fun and
Christmasy is to have someone clever playing the role of Elmer,
the mischievous elf, and the simple but crazy Toy Machine
conveyor belt which makes the missing article reappear.
Effect: You borrow a cap, necktie, wristwatch, or other article
of clothing from someone in the audience and test a Magic Gift
Box that is supposed to duplicate whatever is put into it... but
instead it makes the object disappear. Never mind. Elmer the
mischievous Elf is on hand to help you show the boys and girls
how Toys are made at Santa's Workshop. Elmer wants to show us his
toy conveyor belt that churns out toy after toy automatically.
Suddenly the article of borrowed clothing appears on a toy bear,
then on a dolly, or hanging from a giraffe's mouth. You never
seem to see it, but the kids surely do!
As described, this effect requires
at least one assistant- Elmer the Mischievous Elf.
