A model of a snowman is shown to the spectators and the magi talks about how he built him and his head kept falling off. As the magi says this he takes the head from the body and vanishes it in a devil?s napkin that is provided with the effect. He then takes a balloon, blows it up and places it where the head was on the body telling the spectators that the only thing that would solve the problem was to replace it with a balloon.
For an additional comic effect, a mouth eyes and nose are drawn on the balloon with a magic marker. Magi has a conversation with the snowman where he tells him how unhappy he is to have ?lost his head?. Magi tells the snowman that he will restore his head if he learns to keep it from falling off. The balloon ?magically? pops and the head is restored. This is a brilliant trick for children and grownups of all ages.
