Generally speaking, I despise the term "cute" when describing magic effects, but in this case "cute" is exactly the correct word. "The Baby Bag" is just what the name says: it's a miniature grocery bag, measuring about 2.75 inches tall and 1.25 inches wide. The bag was the brainchild of a gentleman named Bobby Rockman of Charlotte, North Carolina, and he used it as a give-away in his magic shop. Algonquin McDuff and pals Rhett Bryson and Dexter Cleveland picked the brains of some very clever and funny people (including Martin Gardner, Al Cohen, Dan Garrett, Ed Eckl, and Steve Beam) and put together a little book explaining all kinds of tricks and gags you can do with the little bag. Also included is a template and instructions so you can make your own bags (and you'll need to, because once spectators see the little bag, they are going to want one to take home.)
I think this is a great little prop, and if you enjoy mixing a little silliness with your magic then I think you'll like this a lot. Recommended.
