Looks like everyone is just as stumped as I am with this one :-{

Only thought I have had is with the toast coming out as predicted card?

Any ideas guys/girls could really do with the help no matter how silly you think it might sound

Thank you in advance

Freezer/Fridge - tricks with ice cubes or anything else cold like ice cream, soft drinks etc
Toaster - how about ideas using items that are burnt...sandwich effects?

Use a stand mixer (with dough hook) to "mix" or shuffle cards.

Use blender to destroy a bill you find in a lemon in the fridge; do it again and find the bill in an egg from the fridge.

Kettle is tailor made for the magic teapot effect.

Put a card fountain inside the toaster and do a card sword routine with the cards shooting out of the toaster.

Don't get hung up on trying to do stuff with the actual appliances. Try the corporate approach. Make the the magic about the companies/brands or benefits of the products. Karrell Fox's books are filled with corporate magic. Many effects can be adapted.

Professors nightmare

Some companies are long on promises but short on service (or delivering good service) and in reality are about average, blah, blah, blah...

At XYX, we deliver what we promise, guarantee world class quality and do it for an affordable price.... Or whatever three features you were trying to promote for the product line.

Send me a commission! Smile
