Demon Pea House

This is a version of the old ‘pea house’ trick. The magician shows a small wooden ‘house’ and a dried pea. The pea is dropped into a hole in the house. When the magician turns the house over, the pea doesn’t drop out. To finish the trick, a second pea is placed on your palm to lure the pea from the house. This time the educated and home-loving pea does drop out of the house to join the pea in your palm. Complete with instructions copyright Lewis Davenport Limited. This example comes from 1994.
