Transforming Box
by Jim Gerrish

In 1987 I invented this Transforming Box based on my earlier “O.O.P.S. Machine” design so the Wiz Kids could perform an alternate but equally funny trick for repeat shows at the same location, obeying the second rule of magic: Never perform the same trick for the same audience twice in a row.

Effect: The magician shows an empty cardboard box on all sides. A spectator is handed the box and asked to look inside. “Do you see any flowers, silk handkerchiefs, flags, rabbits, secret trap doors, mirrors?” asks the magician. The helper says, “No.”

The magician takes the box from the helper and suddenly it falls open, showing silk handkerchiefs, flags, flowers, a mirror, and a secret trap door in the center. After the audience laughs and recovers from seeing all that stuff in the previously “empty” box, the “secret trap door” flies open and a rabbit puppet makes its appearance through the door.

After an entertaining puppet routine, it all goes back in the box and disappears, leaving the spectator with an examinable empty cardboard box once more.
