Based on James Lucien's original 1949 Skeleton
In The Closet, this version adapted by nine-year-old Wiz Kid
Wilhelmina has some new and original surprises. It begins with
solid white blocks. Then the face, body and feet of Santa appear
on the blocks. When dropped through a tube decorated like a
chimney, the pieces never line up correctly. So Wilhelmina
vanishes the head block in a new vanishing gift box she invented
herself. Finally Santa's head is where it belongs on the stack of
blocks and the chimney is now shown empty... wait a minute,
something is stuck inside... it's Santa's magic sack and it's
filled with Christmas candy treats for the audience... another
new surprise and invention from Wilhelmina.
Wilhelmina has also just added some new block
face templates so you can have a choice of making the trick with
Santa Claus, the original Skeleton, a Leprechaun, or an
all-purpose Clown. I have added Wilhemina to our
list of Magic Nook Inventors since in this one effect alone
she came up with three brilliant inventions!
