Here's the box I'm likely going to use along with the doll once I arrives.
http://www.flickr.com/photos/108219516@N08/

I've had it for over ten years, knowing I'd use it for an effect some day, but never finding the right use. I think I picked it up in a thrift shop, so I have no idea who made it or where more can be found. No manufacturing details on the box anywhere unfortunately. I think I might use Merlinsmagic idea and also wrap up the doll inside the box.

Looks like a BUNCH of us are chomping at the bits, and can hardly WAIT to add this to our magical armamentarium.

I'm anxiously checking my mailbox every day. It's going to seem like an eternity.

Dallas, that is a super cool box !! Ya I love thrift & Salvation Army shops, I find all kinds of old wooden boxes that I re-purpose to put certain magic effects in. I have a medium supply of different sized boxes that I find, age & hold on to & always find the perfect item to put it in for presentations.

I also grab nice (& even worn) small & med silverware wood boxes & remove the cloth and dividers inside = awesome box for larger effects !

Man I soooooo can't wait 4 mine! Excellent thread with great ideas. Reminds me of putting together my Whitestar effect.

I went to Haiti for the earthquake recovery efforts. Obviously this can play very well with me "finding" this while there. I do have some cool Haitian statue rock pieces that I can have out with it.

Thanks everyone. This is cool!!!!!!

What are the dimensons of the doll? I guess it's varies a bit, but roughly? I'm looking for an antique box to put him in Smile.

Could a hypnosis routine be used with this?

About 2 1/2" wide x 3 1/4" tall. Best to find a box that has an interior usable area of 3" x 4" especially if you use a burlap wrap as I did......
Try checking out Walgreens type places for small wooden trinked boxes that have pics of things like SF,Golden Gate bridge,forest,flowers,etc, sand off pic & clearcoating over it, stain & WaLaa !

I just did that with a couple I found at a thrift store. Burned, scratched a few images & dents in it,stained it looks great !
Will post a pic in a bit, this one will probably be going to Daff if he likes it Smile

Nice review Kyle !

FYI - I started a new thread on presentation props like my box & wrap and performance routine ideas to share in Spookie;
http://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/viewt......rum=14&0

I know this thread in L & G has sprouted more of a chat about the Haunted Doll than the rules were to allow, so I thought I'd start an appropriate thread in Spookie to keep it going over there & for those with less than 50 posts that can't go downstairs yet, as we are not discussing secrets in Spookie, just props & presentations ideas for our new beloved Haunted Doll Smile

-Hey mom & dad, I'm playing with a (haunted) doll & it's kewl ! LoL

Well, the Haunted Doll passed the wife test. We've been together for over 32 years and I perform everything for her before before I go public with it. I give her every opportunity to discover my secrets. In this case, I allowed her to handle my Haunted Doll after I performed it for her. Her first 2 comments were Invisible Thread or magnets. I again performed it for her, she then cast aside her previous solutions of either thread or magnets and admitted she had no idea how it worked. Even after a much closer examination of the doll, she was not able to discover the Doll's secret.

So, I'm the happy owner of 2 Haunted Dolls, and perhaps 3 in the near future. Looking forward to hearing how others are presenting this effect.

Finally got my "Twins"
They got delivered on Friday , but I was out so had to pick them up from the post office today.
They charged me 20 euros in import tax. so all-in-all it's been a long painful birth.
Just watched the DVD so I will start practicing tomorrow.

One of the twins is going to stay exactly as he came.
Still in cellophane. Silently awaiting the call.

Where do you live ? Strange thing that you paid import taxe.. Maybe since you ordered 2 at the same time, the price was higher.. I slayed my family with the haunted doll, really great purchase.. Maybe one of the greatest of the year !
