King Tut Arises

I wish that I had had one of these as a child!  In fact...let's be honest...I would love one now!

This is a vintage magic trick.  You try to get the mummy of Tutankhamen back into his coffin, but when the magnet inside is tapped into the wrong position, King Tut won't lie down! The coffin is made with a magnetic metal base.  If you tap the top he won't go back in but if you tap the bottom he goes in.

See the video below to see how it worked!

  1. Hey I just found one of these great little King Tut tricks at Brimfield today. My wife was buying an old button and they gave it to me for free! Has the original box and works great. Thank you for posting this. I didn't know what it was when I bought it. Just thought it was a great little trick, and it certainly is!

  2. You lucky thing!!!! I am so envious...enjoy!!!!
