New, Improved Version!
Now show inside of the box and the bottom!
The deception continues! Our most popular light heavy box has been improved. Itís now angle-proof and even easier to use. Less moves are required for the automatic set-up.
It is a Light Heavy Box that provides a double deception! How could an ordinary cardboard box--a cardboard box you could normally pick up with one finger--be impossible for the spectator to lift? After all, it's only a cardboard box!
One deception is the use of a common everyday item that could be found in any house, building, or street corner. Another deception is in how light this common item normally is.
It looks, feels, and smells like a normal cardboard box--the sides even bend in response to the spectators hands--but it is definitely NOT normal! Even though it looks like a cardboard box, it has the meticulous detail to construction and the smooth, silent operating gimmick that Gimpy's light heavy chests are known for, plus YOU CAN SHOW THE INSIDE OF THE BOX! and with the Improved version, YOU CAN SHOW THE BOTTOM OF THE BOX!

Effect: A volunteer is chosen from the audience. They are told they will take place in a demonstration of how their strength can be altered through the power of suggestion. It is now suggested that a light weight silk will be a trigger to alter their ability to lift a very light box. An empty cardboard box is placed on a normal lightweight table.
The box is shown to the audience on every side and bottom, as well as the inside. The silk is placed inside the box and the volunteer is asked to lift the box, but for some unexplained reason they are unable to lift the box.
Now the silk is removed from the box. And now the volunteer can easily pick up the box. This can be repeated as many times as you wish.
Everything is self contained in the lightweight box. No remote controls, magnets, special tables, stooges, or harnesses. It can be performed surrounded with no reset time. It works on most any table with no preparation.
Box size is 9" x 9" x 9" and includes written instructions and an online tutorial.
