Jacks in the Box Review

September 11th, 2015 1:30am
Reviewed by Doc Johnson

This is a great packet trick because Aldo took a great Roy Walton Oil and Queen trick and created some clever custom cards with a “Jack-in-the-box” design with Roy’s permission. The effect is being produced now by the Magic Apple with a nicer card design.

It is a great effect because it combines an oil and water illusion with a card transposition illusion and ends with an unexpected climax.


As with many packet tricks, when the cards get worn out, you will need to purchase the effect all over again. If you find yourself performing this effect repeatedly, then perhaps it is worth it for you to purchase the effect again for the refills. The “Suggestions” section will have some additional ideas.


Great packet trick that is unique because of the Roy Walton effect and the clever custom printed cards.

Manufacturer's Description:

Hilariously funny packet trick! You show four spot cards and four Jacks. The cards are alternated and the top four cards are placed into the card box, still alternated, and the box is closed. The remaining four cards are then seen to be the four spot cards. Where are the Jacks? In the box! The spectator removes the four cards from the box but they are now seen to be figures of a Jack-In-The-Box! Off-beat climax! Complete with full colored cards. A performance of this routine can be found on my DVD "All Hands On Deck".
