Magical Puppet?

What a fun novelty puppet with which to add variety to a magic show! "Tonight, ladies and gentlemen, I have brought with me for this show a brand new box of "Tricks" (Trix)! With the ability to close his eye, "Trix" could be used for some sort of comedy "mind reading" feat, too, as suggested in Bill Andersen's book: Mental Magic For Ventriloquists.

I gave my first official magic show when I was in the 8th grade. I built many of the effects myself, following instructions found in the magic "how-to" books checked out of our local public library. What fun I could have had with this puppet! Of course, "Trix" had not yet been cooked up in 1949. Maybe I could have created a puppet from "Shredded Wheat"!
