I used to love doing The Russian Rings! Very visual, easy to do, and it gets great audience reactions.

I actually developed two routines for it. One performed silently to a custom music track, and another with patter.

Color-changing records are very showy, yet pack extremely flat. I know some magicians will turn their noses up and say that kids don't know what they are. They will, if you TELL them what they are. For those still not convinced, Tricks Co. from Japan used to make a set of color-changing rings that were basically the same as their color-changing 45 rpm records, minus the center. You can occasionally find these on the used magic sites. If a kid doesn't know what a ring is, he probably doesn't know his own name! Smile


Laflin Magic has also been making and selling a colour changing ring version for several years, on and off.

They call theirs the Russian Rings.

So, that might be a source for a variation of the trick, if you can't track down the one from Tricks Co. from Japan that Michael recommended.

The Laflin version is different from the standard version, where plain records / discs change to solid colours of red, blue, and yellow (or red, green, and yellow). I think in the Laflin version several plain rings change one by one to become multi-coloured.

Does anyone know if there is a video of this ring trick being performed? Or perhaps something similar? Thanks.

I found several videos on Youtube with a simple search. Here are 4 of them.

P.S. The one that Jeremy was performing was an older version of the trick, which was made / sold by Laflin Magic. So the rainbow part has a slightly different look. Like I said earlier, they've sold the trick on and off over the years, and there have been some variations on the look of the prop. If Jeremy was demoing the trick, that meant that Practical Magic in the UK also sold it (and maybe other magic dealers).

I use the pocket size magic coloring book, I also love the zig-zag card, where the spec. signs the card and gets to keep it. (Thanks you Mary M.) And let's not forget paddles, there are many. Including Chad Long's "Flash". And Bag 4 Life is a lot of fun for kids. One more, and this is a great one for me. I do use very much. The self tying shoelace by Jay something, its super easy and gets real reactions.

I just added Dan Harlan's "The Awakening" to my packs flat suitcase. It's just a few pieces of rope. If you don't have this, get it NOW. An amazing routine that works for kids and adults, and is entertaining and a fooler. It's basically the Professor's Nightmare, but with instantaneous length changes. I packed it around for several months before putting it in my show - should have done it a lot sooner. Just my 2 cents. Jim
