Classic Cups & Balls Magic Routine
by Royal Magic, Inc.
Perhaps the oldest of magic tricks (some even believe that images of magicians performing the Cups & Balls routine are found on the walls of tombs in ancient Egypt), this is a complete set, including everything you need; Three colorful plastic cups, balls and illustrated easy-to-follow instructions.
Here’s the effect: The magician shows three empty colorful cups and three fluffy balls. He then proceeds to demonstrate how each of the balls, one at a time, passes through the solid cups.

This illusion is A++. Magic doesn't get better than this. And the best part about this amazing, head scratching effect is . . . IT'S SIMPLE TO DO.
Although it appears to require hours of practice, you’ll learn the trick in five minutes, and be fooling people minutes after that.
This is a perfect trick for an introduction to the mysterious world of magic, regardless of age. A five year old can do this as confidently as an adult, and the audience will be equally impressed. On a skill level of 1 through 5, this is a 1.
And, as the magician's skills improve, more moves can be added to expand the routine. This effect will adapt with your abilities, so The Cups & Balls is a trick that you'll never out grow.
If I were forced to pick one-and-only-one trick to start in magic . . . it would unequivocally be The Cups & Balls.
The cups are red, yellow, and blue, and are approximately 2 1/2" tall, and approximately 2" wide at the mouth. The fluffy balls are white and approximately 3/4" in diameter. The entire set weighs approximately 2 ounces.
The Royal Cups & Balls comes brand new, in its box, with everything you'll need to do the trick, including full instructions.
