Voodoo Doll Review

This is definitely one of my favorite effects, largely because of the unusual nature of the prop.
I am often tempted to own effects for selfish reasons, already being a collector of small and novel objects. This effect used to be in pencil form, but the usage of a straw doll gives the levitation an additional support point-2 legs, as opposed to one pencil end. I don't show this often, and indeed it's not something that the average person would pull out of their pocket. My other 'common object' levitations involve playing cards or a credit card. The Voodoo Doll instantly sets the stage for a more mysterious story-which cannot just be introduced 'cold'. Like the haunted key, the doll works nicely in conjunction with a haunted hank (preferably Eugene's Burger's version!). Additionally, I look out for an equally exotic box to introduce this prop from,
which starts thing off with 'whats in THAT box?'-sometimes just the SIGHT of a unusual prop triggers off a spectator's NATURAL curiosity-(that's all I need!) While I haven't distressed mine, the instructions suggest burning the Doll a bit to add character. I also love this because I can't think of ANY other magic trick that's made out of STRAW! It LOOKS as primitive as the magical powers the effect itself implies. Not a 'quickie', but best saved for when the conversation turns 'otherworldly'.

Manufacturer's Description:

The Magician shows a realistic looking voodoo doll. It is placed in the spectators hand to look at. It is just a little straw doll. When the magician lays the doll in his palm, it suddenly comes to life rising like a mummy out of a casket and stands up straight! Spectators will believe that an invisible force is making it rise up and down. The doll is completely under your control. No wires or threads.

A magical effect that you will always carry with you.
