Magician shows a realistic looking voodoo doll. It is placed in the spectator's hand to look at. It is just a little straw doll. When the magician lays the doll in his palm, it suddenly comes to life rising like a mummy out of a casket and stands up straight! Spectators will believe that an invisible force is making it rise up and down. The doll is completely under your control. No wires or threads,
You may have seen Hiawatha perform this effect on a recent magic tv special.
For children, we call the doll a scarecrow who rises to scare the crows away. A magical effect that you will always carry with you.
