Kainoa Harbottle has a coin production that uses this.

When I was a child my Grandpa did the ol "pull my finger" bit. It has a name but not sure if it's proper.
It's not the size of the wand that matters, it's the "magic" in it...

David Stone has one effect called crossed in his real secrets of magic, more like a gag to me though.

Just because they are called tricks does not mean that you can't make them into the real thing.

I agree with the Will Houstoun suggestiong. It is the one trick that goes with me always.

Looy's False Count is a fun party gag, it is Art of Astonishment Vol 1 I think...

LOL. I don't even waste my time with pulling the finger...might miss a "magical moment"!

Okay...now this thread has sunk to a new low.

There is also an effect called "Fracture" that looks good and gruesome. Can't remember who it is by, though...seems like eithe Jay Sankey or Andrew Mayne.

I have always liked the streching finger.
It's simple and nobody has ever figured it out.

Jay Sankey has an effect on one of the Revolutionary Coin Magic dvds where you pull ypur thumb off and it turns into a coin, you put the coin back on your hand and your thumb reappears. Not sure about the name of the trick, though. Now, there are quiet a few effects with the human body in Dan Harlan's Ultimate Impromptu Magic Volume 1 DVD. That said, Andrew Mayne's "Body Morphin" has loads of really good body effects to try out. Last but surely not least is a DVD by Meir Yedid called "Meir Yedid's Finger Fantasies" that has a lot of effects using our fingers. One can only wonder how many uses they have!
There is one force I can always - ALWAYS - rely on - gravity.

Something I learned from my best friend (muggle)in college was the rising baseball cap. You turn your baseball cap on backwards and slowly blow through your thumb. The cap starts to rise off of your head. I use the patter of "this is how I blow off some steam!" Works great on kids! I am hoping to figure out the change cap to work the two into a routine. Great impromptu magic as well!

Body magic, combined with things to make it personal to that one person, can be made to play big!
