I'll get things started. Pom-Pon pole is terrific.

My vote goes to "Fraidy cat Rabbit" for biggest reaction/response compared to the size of the prop. I use the type with the sliding door rather than a hinged door.

Of course, there's always rope tricks, card tricks, paper tears, etc., but I assume you mean physical magic props or items.

Well, it's a different topic now from that "Packs Flat, Plays Big" thread! :>

For me I like the lock trick. Forgot the name of the trick because I bought it from an Australia dealer.

It's a set of 2 plastic blocks that holds million dollar bill (fake) with a padlock. I hold 4 keys and I invite the audience to select the correct lock to open and if they do open it, the money is theirs.

No one can open it (not even me!) except the birthday child and he gets to keep the "money".

Always get a huge reaction...

Joseph -

That effect is usually called "Key-R-Rect" (a play on words on "correct").

nkthen, it seems this is the same effect I do for table hopping. I do not use Key-R-Rect for the effect mentioned.
If you can control who opens the plastic by the 'way' you 'give it to them' then Key-R-Rect is definitely not the the method.
I do not know what this effect is called.
The Gr8 DonaldD,
PM me if you want more info.
