The classic Gypsy Thread effect built into an everyday object. Close up, Stand up, Kids shows, emcee’s, this prop fits into any situation.
It’s very rare to be able to add to your repertoire a 100% audience tested piece of magic. After hundreds of performances, tweaking and re-tweaking every last detail of the Gypsy Yo-Yo, you can rest assured every wrinkle has be ironed out.
Bring from you pocket a real Imperial Yo-Yo. After showing the Yo-Yo go up and down several times, you explain to your audience that, as a kid, the string was always far too long and the Yo-Yo would always hit the ground. Trying to adjust the length, you proceed to snap the string, breaking off a small piece. This is repeated several times until all that is left dangling from the Yo-Yo are a few inches of string.
The pieces are rolled together into a ball and added to the small, dangling Yo-Yo string. Without any cover etc., the very end of the string is slowly pulled, the ball unravels and the Yo-Yo string is once again fully restored. The string is wound back around the Yo-Yo. You finish by showing the Yo-Yo freely spinning up and down and back to its original state.
The gimmick is custom-built, inside a real Yo-Yo. We love the method and handling. This effect is perfect for so many different types of show. It is destined to become a classic for many years.
Perfect for stand up, strolling, kids’ shows, emcees, trade shows. This prop fits into any performer’s pocket and is always ready to go.
