As silly and simple as it is. The multiplying rabbits (Eddie Acer models) are so cute and so amazing to kids and adults that everyone keeps asking for me to do it agaian and again.

Sponge Balls/ Sponge Rabbits. Hands down the strongest "magic" trick you can do for people. Only mentalism can top it for sheer effectiveness.

Ring Flight - it involves the audience, uses thier ring, offers a multitude of plot possibilities, can be played serious or comic, works for the women (that's a biggie!), looks impossible, is self contained, angle-proof, plays for larger crowds, - what more could you ask for?

By the way, Whit Haydn's talk lines for this are fabulous, good enough that no less an expert than Don Alan touted Whit's presentation constantly (to his friends, only!), and used it himself as long as there were no magicians in the crowd - he didn't want them to find out about it if they didn't already know it!

Best, PSC

I love the Cups & Balls.
The only negative side of it is that one has to do it often or will loose the timing. In other words, difficult to learn, but easy to forget as with many other magic tricks of course

Chop Cup or Sponge Balls! I can't decide which one has more impact. Probably Sponges because a phase or two happens in their hands but when they see those two final tennis ball sized loads come out of the Chop Cup in the fairest possibe manner, the look on their faces is priceless.
