Magicians and performance artists of every stripe use artificial thumb tip props for a wide range of gimmicks. Some are standalone acts and some are woven into part of a larger performance. They are designed to fit over a thumb repeatedly for multiple uses. Though like any worn prop they can wear out over time.
These replacement thumb tips appear to be just like your thumb at a casual glance. Though they certainly won’t stand up to a close inspection. As is the case with most fake thumb and fingertips. This particular pack of six is available in four different sizes. Including XXL, King Size, Classic and even Junior to comfortably fit just about any size thumb!
Removable thumb tips are a staple for a wide range of magical gimmicks and performance acts. This includes some classic vanishing, producing, or switching small objects tricks as well as unique performances.
One of the most classic tricks performed with these thumb tips is to place a silk handkerchief or other small object pressed into the top of the left fist for a vanishing act. The handkerchief is then pushed in with the right thumb, the left fist is opened to show the silk has disappeared. Another take on this calls for vanishing a lit cigarette, a vial of liquid, salt or some other small object.
