This money box works on the basis of a slanted mirror on the inside, you appear to be looking inside the box but in fact its an optical illusion. The effect is that when you put the money in the box it disappears, I had one of these when I was younger and bought it for nostalgia value and then bought some more to give as gifts, it was one of the first money boxes I had. It wont take long for anyone to figure out, regardless of their age but it is a neat, simple trick and a good idea to encourage saving.

Nice little item, my son enjoyed it for a while but the compartment for coins is really small so not much use as an actual money box.

Just a little extra present which was enjoyed by my grandchildren before I even got to wrap it up - being boys they soon worked out what the 'magic' was!

hi all, this toy comes with random background, you may not receive the one shown in the picture although it wont affect the functionality. It is a nice effect but will just take 60 seconds to any kid to learn the trick behind; when you open the box to get the coins back the trick is there revealed, it would be better to let teh coin drop into a separate box that doesnt reveal the trick at once.

My box is little defective and the "trick" is also visible if you watch carefull without opening it, however the first impact effect is amazing and for the price will make a nice present to anyone, kid or not. Do not buy this if you want a magic trick, it is not a magic trick, instead i recomend to buy this in case you want a cheap and nice illusion toy.

Also consider "Micro Bank" that is a similar illusion toy, i saw it on amazon just after purchasing this one, cant compare the two since the other has yet to arrive, you can watch its review in case it has arrived at the time you are reading this.

This was tiny , holds hardly any money , it's hard to open and is flimsy so will break easily .... Not what I was expecting for the money at all

thought it would be bigger and hold more money than it does, although the magic aspect went down quite well.

brought for my son for Christmas this is a lot smaller than expected but i still liked it and my son loved it, he was amazed at where his money was going and i never let on to him for a long time think he was getting a bit worried that he wouldn't get his money back again bless him

I was surprised at how small the money box was when it arrived, but nevertheless think it will make a great present. I'm sure my godson will enjoy impressing all his friends with the illusion! Would recommend.
