Forgetful Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer

A model of an absentminded Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer is shown to the spectators, and the magician talks about how Rudolph is extremely forgetful.


In fact, he's so forgetful; he forgets where he put his Christmas list and how to get things ready for his famous Christmas Eve ride. He is so forgetful that he once forgot where he left his nose! As the magician says this he takes the nose from the body and vanishes it in a Christmas decorated devil's handkerchief (provided with the effect). He then takes a red balloon, blows it up and places it where the nose was on the body.


Rudolph is very unhappy as the other reindeer call him names and make fun of him because of his balloon nose. The magician explains how Santa has a conversation with Forgetful Rudolph where he tells him how unhappy he is that he "lost his nose." Santa gets a promise from Rudolph that he will bring all the good little girls and boys something extra and try not forget things anymore, and he restores his nose with a few magic words. The balloon "magically" pops and Rudolph's nose is restored! This is a brilliant trick for children and grownups of all ages.


The effect is beautifully made and is about 15" high and 16" wide. It uses wing nuts and bolts to be easily taken apart and folded flat. It is silk-screened in 5 different, vibrant colors. The Christmas vanishing handkerchief can be used for other effects.

Forgetful Frosty

Love Forgetful Freddie but need him for holiday shows? Meet his pal, Forgetful Frosty!

The performer displays a beautiful 16 inch tall replica of a snowman and tells the audience about the time as a youth that he built his best snowman ever. A bully came along and knocked Frosty’s head off with a snowball. (Frosty’s head is removed.) When a neighbor wrapped the head in newspaper and brought it into the house, guess what happened? Frosty’s head predictably melted. (The head is wrapped in an empty newspaper and vanishes turning into water, which is poured into an empty cup.)

A face is then drawn on a big white balloon and is attached to Frosty’s body to replace his head, but it’s just not the same. The performer asks the audience to clap their hands really fast making enough wind to freeze the water in the cup. When the cup is turned upside down above the balloon white snow (confetti) flutters down, the balloon pops, and Frosty’s head is back on his body once more.

This professional prop is a quality masterpiece, vibrantly colored lacquers and vinyl finish, and built to last! Comes complete with snowman, special gimmicks, confetti, balloons etc. Limited supply, order today!

Letter to Santa

Just in time for all of your holiday shows. Letter To Santa has all the right stuff and it gives the audience the warm fuzzies to boot.

A special mailbox adapted for magical use is introduced. On one side the sign reads "North Pole" and on the other side it reads "S. Claus." You can tell the audience that Santa himself is letting you help him gather cards and letters. Open Santa's mailbox and remove a list or letters that you read to the audience. Then produce a rabbit OR other items from inside.

After the mailbox is shown empty you can produce a rabbit for the kids. The letters in the box could be the holiday bonuses that the boss wants handed out. First you produce a trophy for the best employee then hand out the bonus envelopes. Get the idea? You can use Letter To Santa any time of the year for presentations.

Private schools have awards programs too. You can tell the kids that Santa watches them all year long... so they better be good. Then produce the P.T.O.s awards from inside and pass them to the winners. Hey! Sometimes a customer wants you to produce a puppy at a birthday party. If he is the size of a rabbit, you're in business.

Start with one rabbit up front. Make it disappear then reproduce a second matching rabbit from inside. Tell them that Elves up to their old tricks. You can produce a spring rabbit then put it in your Duck Bucket and it magically turned into a real rabbit. Lots of presentations are possible.

Letter To Santa is made using a steel bodied mailbox. It also features:

Special vinyl graphics on both sides
The gimmick and interior of the box is flocked black, making a perfect Black Art illusion.
A wood base is added. Attach your own flange and mount everything directly to a table base instead of using an entire table.

This is just one of the many holiday-related products you can find for your holiday shows here at Hocus Pocus!

A holiday-themed version of Ralph E. Powell's classic "ABC Stung!" trick.

Forgetful Santa

A model of an absent minded Santa is shown to the spectators as the magician talks about a Santa who is very forgetful. He forgets where he put his Christmas list and how many toys he promised each good little child. He is so forgetful that he once forgot where he left his head.

As the magician says this, he takes the head from the body and vanishes it in a devil's napkin decorated like Christmas wrapping paper (provided with the effect). The magician then takes a balloon, blows it up, and places it where the head was on the body.

For an additional comic effect, a mouth, eyes, beard, hat, and nose are drawn on the balloon with a magic marker. The magician has a conversation with Forgetful Santa where he tells him how unhappy he is to have "lost his head." The magician gets a promise from Santa that he will bring all the good little girls and boys something extra and try not forget things anymore and he restores his head with a few magic words. The balloon "magically" pops and Santa's head is restored.

This is a brilliant trick for children and grown-ups of all ages.

This is repeated with a blue and red silk, with two white wreaths changing to blue and red!

This is a great Christmas trick that can also be used all year around. A beautiful red and white chimney stands on a green stand. The chimney measures about 11 inches high and is five inches square. There are many different effects that can be done with this versatile prop. This chimney can be used to produce a live dove or other small animal. It can be performed completely surrounded. Rubber fruits, silks, streamers can also be produced. Items can also be exchanged with this chimney. One of my favorite Christmas effects is to ask the kids in the audience, "Who would you like to see come down the chimney this Christmas?" Of course the kids will say, "Santa". You look in the chimney and show it to be completely empty. A red and white silk are placed into the chimney and with the wave of a magic wand a "Santa" silk is produced.

Snow Animator III by Kevin James

Hocus Pocus in conjunction with Kevin James' Imagination Unlimited is proud to present The Snow Animator III!

The Snow Animator III is the latest evolution of the Snow Animator series. Imagine all the power and upgraded components of the Snow Animator II without all the baggage!

Kevin has taken all of the improvements and put them into a 1 foot square box and decorated it like a Christmas present with a big bow on top. Simply place the present down on any chair towards the front of the stage, take the lid off the box and work out of it from there; everything you'll need for this effect is now all self-contained and in the box.

The performer talks of giving the gift of snow to a little girl one Christmas, and as he does so, he tears a paper snowflake from a paper napkin. Placing it into a glass of water, the performer swirls the paper snowflake around and scoops it out with a straw. As the melodic music crescendos, he squeezes out the water from the wet snowflake. Seconds later, a big and beautiful snowstorm is shooting out of his hands!

This reputaion-maker is now more practical and affordable than ever. Packing is a cinch as well; you don't have to travel with a stool, everything is all in a one foot square box, it is completely and totally self-contained, and extremely practical for any performer! Simply place it on any chair and go. You can decorate it as a birthday present or just a mysterious black box with a question mark on it, or even mount it into a table. Sit or stand! The box could even be placed on the floor and you can sit on a chair just behind the box and still perform it sitting down.

Debuted at a recent magicians' convention, the Snow Animator III got a standing ovation! Comes complete with gift box and snow animator gimmick built in, battery and battery charger, delay timer, snowloads, custom carrying case built by Encore Cases, and thorough instructional video that even includes bonus routine ideas AND instructions on how to make your own snow! WOW! Think how much money you'll save on snow loads alone!

Be original and leave an everlasting effect on your audience with Kevin James' brand new Snow Animator III!
