Topic: Crazy little hand
Message: Posted by: elushinz (Feb 3, 2004 04:54AM)
I am having the best time with this little "coin" trick. It is essentially a little rubber ladies hand with an attachment for the pinky. You make a little cave with your hands and place one of the old steel pennies on the pulse of your wrist. All of the sudden, a little creepy hand Pops out and snatches the penny.

It is really a cool little effect and is soo easy to do. I am wondering if anyone knows where to get them or if you even know what I'm talking about.

Any help would be great!

Already covered in another string.

I've been doing this gag for years. You can buy the marketed effect called "My friend Hans" or do what I do and go to a dollar store, find a couple of dolls with the right type of hand and go home and play Dr. Frankenstein. I wound up with a dozen hands for a couple bucks.
