You start off with a paddle blank on both sides... then an arrow (engraved and highlighted) appears on one end. The arrow moved to the middle, then to the far end. It's shaken from spot to spot, then slid.It multiplies, and even jumps about on its own volition. In one wild sequence, the arrows on the paddle refuse to cooperate and apparently lead one another from place to place! Finally, and arrow is visibly split in two and the paddle is hanged out for examination. The Amazing Jumping Paddle is easy to do and produces not one moment of magic...or two...or three but a symphony of entertaining eyeball-poppers that will make this trick one you will carry with you - always.
