Topic: Cups and Balls: Michael Ammar Fab Fruit
Message: Posted by: mpacyga (Oct 8, 2013 12:16PM)
I am trying to locate the Michael Ammar Fab Fruit. I have the lemon already, and I find that it is perfect for my routine. This is such a great product. I would like to add additional Michael Ammar produce, however, they are no longer available on his website. I should have purchased the lime, potato, and tomato when I had the chance. Does anyone know where I might find these items? And if not the Ammar items, would you have some suggestions of similar fruit.

I am also open to using different final loads. I am currently producing 3 shiny juggling balls, but the audience reaction is just not as strong as producing a lemon. I believe this is because everyone has handled a lemon and know that it is not a gimmick. The shiny juggling balls are ok, but I believe the audience is thinking, “ok there must be some trick to those “collapsable” shiny juggling balls.

Thanks for your help.

Mister Mike

According to a customer care correspondent at the Ammar website, they are currently out of stock on the Fab Fruit, and in the process of getting more. I was told that the product should be back in stock in perhaps three weeks, or so.

Use real lemons and potatoes.

Rings and things has eggs: http://www.rnt2.com/rubber-jumbo-egg-brown-individually.html#.Ulr4cSSE62A

This place has some good looking stuff and some of it is labeled "soft touch" which might help with noise: http://www.qualitysilkplants.com/artificial-plastic-fruit.html

This place has lots of stuff, but here's some of their latex coated foam spuds: http://barnardltd.com/product.jsp?prodId=10994&catId=1108

Here's another, but some of it doesn't look as real. Still some options: http://www.displayfakefoods.com/

This place has some nice looking stuff: http://www.zimmermanmarketplace.com/index.php

Here's another: http://www.amazingproduce.com/

Hope those help a little. I understand wanting to use fake versus real, you buy it once and have it for years. Still, Pete's idea is sound and you get to do some international travel :)

I just received lemons, limes and oranges from Ammar Magic. These are the newest ones and they look great.

I have/had a lemon, lime, tomato and potato from the old mold. They look good, but the new ones are much, much better.

You can see in the somewhat blurry (sorry) pic the old lemon and lime to the right of the new ones. Note the better texture on the new ones. The oranges are new and bright. They all fit in a standard set of cups (Johnson's pictured).
