Teeny, Tiny, Tricky Trunk
Box Flea Circus
by Jim Gerrish
This may be the first
ever flea circus that fits inside a small tin lunch box.
It is smaller than a cigar box, briefcase, and all the
small suitcases and trunks currently being built or sold
as flea circuses. When you find one for sale, it can cost
in the hundreds and even the thousands of dollars. When
you find instructions for building one yourself, it
usually involves lots of electronic parts.
My goal has been to
perform the most number of flea circus tricks as
possible, carried and performed in a box no bigger than a
standard tin lunch box, and with no need for electronics
(although simple battery operated electrical devices
arent ruled out if they are inexpensive and readily
available). If you are ready to be a Ringmaster to a
troupe of fleas, here's a good place to start!
