A fellow magi just showed me this awesome little trick tonight. The effect is thus: You take a cigarette and put it into this little tube then place a cap on the tube. Then take the cap off and tip it over and a very little tiny baby cigarette falls out.

Does anyone know what this effect is called and where I could buy it? My friend couldn't remember the name of it and said he got it in an old shop in Texas years ago that is no longer around.

My internet searches have so far been fruitless. Any info would be a great help!


Nevermind! I found it.
(I'm such a dork!)

It was called something really obscure like "Shrinking Cigarette". No wonder I couldn't find it

Mike Powers use to market a shrunken cigarette. They where made very well. The looked exactly as they would if a real cigarette was shrunken down to the size f a tooth pick.
I don't thinking he makes them anymore but he may still have some. I can find out if you're interested. he's also a member of this board.

I use to do it with the old thumb tip. The tag line was that it was supposed to disappear. When the hand is opened and they see this tiny cigarette I've say, "Well, it almost disappeared."

After regaining my ability to hear after 20 years of deafness. I learned that there is magic all around you. The simplest sounds that amazed me you probably ignore. Look and listen around you right now. You'll find something you didn't notice before.
