I have a good friend that is a nurse and works for children. I want to buy her a simple coin trick so she could bring some fun to the situation but, I'm having trouble coming up with what would be the best trick for her. It needs to reset easily and be repeatable.

I thought a steel core quarter with a PK ring would work best. I bought both and the PK ring looks HUGE on her finger. She has really small hands, so that's not going to work.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Magnetic scotch and soda has all the adavantages of Scotch and Soda, but easier reset.

I've forgotten the name, but what about the trick where the coin penetrates a piece of rubber that's covering a glass. Pretty simple to do. Another thought is a DVD Aldo Colombini has on his Web Site called, I think, Simple Coin tricks. It's pretty inexpensive.

Penacoin I think but there are several knockoffs.

I second Colombini's web site. There is a no-sleight coin magic ebook there, but I think just in general it is a great resource for people wanting to add a bit of "magic" in their profession. Rachel puts out a lot of theme things for kids that can be adjusted for use in a variety of situations. Aldo seems to come up with a ton of very simple hard hitting stuff. You can't beat the $10 price.

It would kind of depend on the ages of the children but quarter squeeze might work out well.

Happy New Year!!!

Hey craiger123,

This effect can be duplicated with a rubber exam glove that's inflated. Also, assuming she's in healthcare you NEED to find the book and/or dvd call Side-Fx - it's magic effects done in a doctors office setting and it's AWESOME!

Regards,

Barrett James

Sponge balls or sponge bunnies - better icebreaker especially in ICU, not an opinion - a fact. Then hit them with coin trick with hanky.

What level of interest does your freind have in magic? Did she ask you for help learning something?

Wow Thanks everybody! Great ideas.
Yes she said she wanted help with picking out a magic trick. She just wants a few things to shift the energy of the interaction. Read we just want to give you a little shot with this needle. She could use a little magic. Heck we all could, right?

The rubber exam glove is a great idea.

I know this is not coins but a Hot Rod always goes over well. Just plucking coins from kids ears, hair, clothes...etc works well too.

I think the simpler the better in this kind of environment. You don't have a lot of time for longer routines, etc. I agree with old favorites mentioned by Pete, like Nickels To Dimes, the Coin Block Penny to Dime trick. And though it's not a coin trick, the Vanishing Hanky (TT) always WOWS! kids of all ages and is just about the greatest easy trick there is anywhere, absolutely great for a hospital setting. Smile You can also do as Tim suggested here and do some fun coin productions, vanishes, etc. Most not hard to learn and do from the old Bobo's book.
