Review: Burglar Ball by Tenyo

The Effect
A cover is placed on the box and the whole thing is secured with a rubber band. The box is covered with a handkerchief, and the ball is placed under the hanky, on top of the box. Now comes the magic. Your audience will see the ball sinking into the box. The handkerchief is removed and the ball is really inside of the box. The ball is removed and the spectator can examine all of the props.

Cost
Quick search results from a handful of sites came back with $10-$15.

Difficulty
(1=easy to do, 2=No sleights, but not so easy, 3=Some sleights used,
4=Advanced sleights used, 5=Suitable for experienced magicians only)

There are two ways of doing it per the directions. The normal way would be a 2 and the easy way a 1.

Review
I can see where this could easily be passed over as a child's trick but it's small size should be good for table hopping. It's not a show stopper but could be used as a quick back up plan if you're caught with previously performed tricks that still need to be reset.

The descriptiopn "see the ball sinking into the box" is more like hear it plunk. The kit includes the box and ball. Rubber band and hanky not included.

Overall
3/10 If I lose it, it won't be replaced.

Try and expand your views a bit. It's good that your giving your opinions and not just information about the product but try and expand on it. For example what are your experiences performing with it, do you feel it is worth the money, how detailed are the instructions? e.t.c. Don't feel you need to write lots of reviews, just concentrate on a realy high quality one.
