Lunch 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 aren’t 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!
