This is a great product for close-up or stage. The sponge balls are a great addition to sponge products. I love eyeball manipulation. It's something I actually do! I have hand-crafted my own multiplying eyeballs and painted shells for many years, but this is the first time I have seen a product that is available to the mainstream magic market. Harry Radke, from House of Fakini is making silicone multiplying eyeballs. A smart magician would stock up on both of these sets. I know I will.

Here's what you get:
Four sponge eyeballs, all of them are about an inch and a half in diameter, and are detailed with black pupils, blue irises, and even some bloodshot streaks around the eyeball, giving them a bizarre, comic gaze. There is routine with rhyming patter, by Steve Marshall, and explanations of various moves.

I like these especially if the audience does not know they are made of sponge material. In fact, I might even keep that unknown to any audience. Yet, if you want to use them for a normal sponge ball routine, be aware that they are not "super-soft." They do compress with a bit more resistance than a normal sponge ball. I have had mine for quite a few months, and they have remained white, and not yellowed, as many sponge items do. I especially recommend this "eye-catching" prop for anyone looking to grab someone's eye with something novel.

Manufacturer's Description:

The Eyes Have It!

Routine and Script by Steve Marshall

Welcome to the wonderful world of eyeball magic! It is one of the lesser-known areas of magic. With these sponge eyeballs that Alan Wong has created you will be able to create many different kinds of 'eye-popping' effects. Some of you may choose the creepy crawly route. Others have chosen to go the comedy route, as professional magician Steve Marshall has been known to do from time to time. This routine contains more than a few corny (or possibly cornea) jokes. Whichever direction you decide to go, you will have lots of fun, and get great reactions from these eyeballs!

This package comes with a set of four hand painted sponge eyeballs and 5 page instruction booklet.
