Review

This is another item that caught my eye recently while looking for stage props and I hope that you will agree that there's something magical about watching lots of items being casually produced from a seemingly empty box.

The secret is very simple and once you know how it works then the items that you produce are simply down to your own imagination. Obviously there are some limitations because of the method but you'll get the idea.

The box is very well made as you would expect with all Mikame products and it comes with a bag of five different coloured large silks, 75 paper flowers in 3 bundles of 25 and three cans. This was the slightly disappointing bit as the video shows six or seven cans which the box can easily hold but you only get three.

Additional cans are NOT for sale so you will have to find and then prep your own depending on the type of routine that you want to create.

There is also a lot of scope for combining the Mujinzu Box with other effects such as using it to produce rope for a rope routine or sponges, cards etc.

Overall

This is a very nice item and routine with lots and lots of possibilities and I recommend that any stage workers take a close look at this item.

If you're creative with your routines then you will get even more out of this prop which is only let down a little bit by not having more cans :cry:

I'm extremely pleased wuith this purchase.

Superb effect, it looks very traditional but plenty of scope for doing your own thing in many respects. Is it appearing at Middleton Hall by any chance?

It's not I'm afraid as it's not quite practiced enough yet. I only got it on Monday and haven't had time to do anything other than unpack it.

Still, I've got a week off work now and I have another and similar event in Leamington on 30th April for those who may be interested. Check my web site for more detail.
